I've relied on IDEA for over 20 years, and the relationship has been so trouble-free, I've hardly noticed how easy it's been. How nice to have such reliable, dependable backup!


You are second to none in my estimation. The information in your magazines; education, studies and results, up to date info....literally second to none.

I have been affiliated with IDEA for over 25 years now, and have found no comparison to the quality, and professionalism that IDEA continues to exhibit year after year with their reading material, conferences, CEC, etc. Looking forward to many more years of exiting continuous affiliation.

IDEA is an organization of true professionals, for professionals. They offer essential resources for members, they helped out during COVID and always are finding ways to improve their services. That's how you know you're part of something great. Thanks IDEA for creating a community I want to be a part of.

Becoming an IDEA Health & Fitness member was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a trainer. If I need support, CECs or I’m looking for a great fitness article I know I can go to the website or open my physical copy of the IDEA Fitness Journal. There is nothing like attending an IDEAFit Conference and being part of a community of like minded professionals. I have met so many wonderful people over the years through Idea Fit. It’s a community that I am thankful and proud to be a part! Thanks for all you do IDEA!
