Believe or not, the last day of a conference is typically my favorite. Although mental and physical exhaustion has fully set in, there is often one more final ‘a-ha’ moment just waiting right around the corner. One that makes you glad you stayed all the way through that last session.

Yesterday’s sessions at IDEA’s Personal Trainer Institute™ left me with cerebral overload. After sitting for hours, my mind needed a little break. So to counter my “day 1” experience, I did what any fitness professional would do to add variety—I headed to a workout session, of course!

Having only attended IDEA World Fitness Conventions™, I figured IDEA Personal Trainer Institute™ would be a small-scaled version (minus the group fitness track, of course). Boy, was I wrong (in a good way)! The intimacy of the event allows for greater time to get to know the presenters and dive into issues that spark quality conversations with colleagues.

 30 years of IDEA … I have been part of the last 17 of it. I can say without exaggeration that the conferences I have attended have very much shaped what I do as a personal trainer. Being exposed to so many ways of looking at the body and being able to pick my own vantage point has made me the trainer I am today.

Just came back from the IDEA Personal Trainer Institute in Alexandria, Virginia.  As with the many IDEA conferences I attended before, this one provided interesting sessions by world class presenters. I returned home with food for thought, 12 foam rollers, 1 Bosu (already spoken for) and 2 Lebert Equalizer bars.
