It's Sunday and I was up at 5AM; a time of morning I haven't seen in quite some time. But it was to be a special day as I was invited to join 20 of the top presenters in the world for the blowout "Showdown/Throwdown" session. I didn't need coffee (though I did get one just in case) as the bundle of nerves in my body worked overtime. As I meandered toward the convention center I noticed well-worn attendees digging deep to close out IDEA World Convention 2010 with a bang. Some were wobbly; most deep in thought attempting to make sense of the ideas and theories bouncing through their brains; all were tired. You can't blame them; this was the final day of an exhausting convention. But these people are the lifeblood of IDEA's message to Inspire the World to Fitness. These are the professionals that definitely walk the talk. What impressed me most was the vigor and enthusiasm with which hundreds of fatigued attendees poured through the ballroom doors. Those stalwart folks had burned it at both ends, but somehow managed to give it one last go. And they were glad they did.Two rooms, 20 presenters, one massive 2-hour workout that challenged balance, agility, strength, but most of all: utter determination. What's more? Those who pushed hardest were rewarded with BOSU Balance Trainers, DVDs, IDEA swag, training equipment, books and more. But it didn't stop there. Two tough-as-nails attendees were rewarded with not one, but TWO convention registrations for IDEA World Fitness Convention 2011. This session is just one example of the power of what it is fitness professionals do. I am 100% confident that those participants--and all World attendees for that matter--will head home to their respective homes, and use their undying enthusiasm to get this world moving.Until next year.
