I wanted to shoot out a quick blogpost to notify my readers about an awesome event coming up this weekend. It’s on May 13-14 in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s called The Fitness Summit, and it’s only $199. Click here for more information.
I’ll try to be brief and speak from the heart. I’ve been to many different seminars, and this event is one of a kind. I was actually a speaker last year, and I had so much fun. I wrote about it here. If I was still in the states, I’d be speaking at this event in a heartbeat. When I return I hope to be invited back to speak and be a regular at the event. Here are the reasons why I believe it’s such a great event:
1. I got to hang out with Alan Aragon, Nick Tumminello, and Lou Schuler. Alan is freaky smart about nutrition, Nick is incredibly creative and knowledgeable about fitness, and Lou is the top editor and writer in the S&C profession. Having these connections is very important if you want to one day have a career in the fitness industry. This is a rare event in that you get to spend quality time with the speakers. Alan Aragon is actually one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met and being around him is well worth the $199 alone. I had a bunch of little questions I wanted to get answered about nutrition, and I was able to ask Alan in person some of these lingering questions I had. I got to compare training notes with Nick Tumminello and I learned that we share much of the same beliefs and philosophies. Lou gave me some incredible advice regarding writing and professionalism.
2. The presentations were excellent. I learned a ton from the speakers last year and was presented top-notch information.
3. The community is solid. If you’re looking for a group of fitness folks to start mingling with, then look no further. Many of the attendees regularly post on the JPFitness Forums and have formed a supportive network. I met some amazing folks at this event and cultivated some meaningful friendships. Nick Bromberg organizes the event and does an excellent job at it.
4. It’s only $199! That’s very affordable.
So if you’re a trainer or coach in the KC area, or if you’re looking to network and learn more about strength, conditioning, nutrition, and fitness writing, consider attending this event. You have 4 days left!!!
