SAN DIEGO, July 6, 2022 – Online shopping and curbside pickup have their place, but there’s nothing like shopping in person, especially if you’re looking for that perfect piece of gym equipment or the latest fitness technology. As people reconnect with their health and fitness routines, IDEA® World Convention returns to live, in-person education at the Las Vegas Convention Center, July 20-24.  

 To help celebrate this wellness reunion, the IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo also returns, and attendees will find everything they need to support their fitness pursuits—while taking advantage of event-only discounts. This annual fitness celebration is entering its fourth decade as the essential conference for personal trainers, group fitness instructors, gym owners and anyone who values the life-altering benefits of a healthy body and mind.  

 “The IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo is a health and wellness playground for fitness professionals and health enthusiasts,” says Amy Boone Thompson, IDEA’s owner and chief executive officer. “Wellness permeates the expo hall and around every corner there’s a unique and highly relevant product or service.  There’s no better place to learn more about the latest innovations in everything related to fitness, including new training tools, nutrition products and new workouts.” 

 This year’s highlights include: 

  • The Healthy Living Pavilion, the destination for all things nutrition and wellness related.
  • The Showcase Arena and MEGA Workouts, signature exercise programs offered by the biggest brands in fitness. 
  • Discounts and samples from the industry’s best fitness, apparel, nutrition and wellness companies.
  • The chance to get hands-on demonstrations of the newest and most relevant fitness technology tools, apps, equipment and programs. 
  • The opportunity to network with industry celebrities and other fitness professionals and be re-inspired to stay the course and learn new ways to succeed. 

The IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo will be open Friday, July 22, 11:45am-7:00 pm and Saturday, July 23, 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. The expo pass includes the chance to try out exciting new workouts that highlight new equipment, taught by prominent fitness presenters. One popular exercise experience returning this year is IDEA World Mega Circuit, led by top-notch educators who coach participants through 20 different creative exercise options. Other classes to choose from include Les Mills Grit™, Cardio Country Fusion® and Elev8, presented by Oxygen.  

 “This year in particular, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are looking forward to reuniting with our members and partners,” said Thompson. “We cannot wait for this long-anticipated reunion, and we take our role as the most trusted professional association to heart. The IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo, and the convention itself, will reignite and remind the fitness industry that we’re here to drive optimal health for everyone.”
