I attended the IDEAPTI last weekend and here is what happened
Once a year the IDEA (International Health and Fitness Association) Personal Trainer conference is held in the Washington, DC area. I love this event and volunteer to be an assistant for the weekend every year. In exchange I attend training sessions that help me grow as a studio owner and Fitnesspreneur. This conference is always super exciting and attended by trainers from around the world. I learn not only from the sessions I attend, but from the other attendees as well.
The IDEA staff has become an extended family of mine. Everyone is friendly, supportive, encouraging, and that creates an exciting learning environment.
Each year I am able to reconnect with my old friends in the fitness industry and make new ones. That puts a smile on my face thinking about it.
What did I learn? That you never stop learning!
As a Solopreneur, I wear many hats to run my business, and in order to be more successful I need to improve how I do business. Education is the key to success.
My focus for this year's conference:
- Training the female client. Understanding the role of nutrition, strength training, and hormones
- Gut health. You eat what you can digest for health
- Business. Run my business effectively and efficiently
- Serving more clients. Helping my tribe to live better and feel better through online training
The presenters were excellent and experts in their field. There was a lot of note-taking and asking questions to get the most out of our time together.
It is exciting when you are among like-minded people. I know I am taking my business to the next level.
