David Mesirow, Fred Hoffman and Nicki Anderson discuss the holistic wellness direction of the fitness industry in an impromptu interview with editor in chief Sandy Todd Webster at the 2008 IDEA World Fitness Convention.
Guess what? I am back at home after a few flight delays yesterday that really weren't so bad. And our house wasn't burned down. If any of you readers are firefighters, I want to publicly state that you all are the only reason we still have a home. So, moving on with my life....I still need to cut the wrist band off my arm (the one that proves I am a convention attendee). Once that's done, I really am done with the convention, I suppose.
I circled the globe in one hour Friday night. The 7 people I met at our International Reception took me from one side of the world to the other and reminded me of how far IDEA's reach has become over the years.
After wandering late into the reception for the International Attendees, I made up for lost time by meeting an entire group of very gracious instructors from Japan. Almost all of them have come to at least 10 conventions (that's a lot of jet-lag), but the youngest, Kayo (forgive any misspellings), was here for the first time and had come all alone. What a brave soul!
