What our Fit Pros are saying…
"I have been an IDEA member since 2017 when I attended my first IDEA World Convention. I was blown away by the number of sessions to select from at the conference, how organized the entire event was, and how outstanding the presenters were. IDEA is a phenomenal resource for fitness professionals looking for education, networking, and all kinds of career support. Through IDEA I have made incredible friendships, found myself the BEST mentor, and have made giant strides in my career that I don’t think I would have accomplished had I not experienced an IDEA World convention. Every fitness professional needs an IDEAfit+ membership!"
Fitness Director at Renaissance Athletic Club in Benton Harbor, Michigan
"IDEA had been a steadfast support and wealth of knowledge to me over my 35 years in the Fitness Industry! Not only with superior customer service, but also for Insurance and Continuing Education. Thank you IDEA! Peace."
35-year Fitness Professional - ACE Personal Trainer; ACE Group Fitness, Glading Master Trainer.
"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 IDEAfit. It's a community that I am thankful and proud to be a part of! Thanks for all you do IDEA!"
