I am sooooo inspired. Seriously. Spending the day at IDEAFIT has me super pumped to spread the word about running and fitness and health. I feel like a big ol’ happy organic cheese ball
I spent the day at the IDEA conference in Los Angeles. It is the biggest conference for fitness professionals ever in the history of Earth. (Mars has us beat by some odd twist of events.)
I set the alarm early to hit up a workout class by 7am. Reebok sponsored my attendance for this event through Fitfluential so I am outfitted in their gear too. Even in this creeper light it’s super cute!
The morning class was a combo step/dance class. It was hard to keep up!
Luckily, I have my friends Julie from PB Fingers and Gina the Fitnessista with me so the emphasis in that class was “Fun!” and not “don’t make a fool of yourself by falling off the step!”. Mission Accomplished.
The sessions at IDEAFIT are for fitness professionals. They are work-outs, work-shops and information sessions to help our clients and readers. I signed up for running and nutrition related classes and am super pumped to share with you guys! But today is just a quick recap since I’m exhausted and probably incoherent at this point.
My next session was a Yoga Fit Basics class. I thought it was going to be about learning to teach stretching and yoga basics, but it was a straight up yoga class. It was probably for the best because I want to go to yoga once a week!
The keynote speaker was the best I’ve ever heard. Bo Eason. Look him up. When he was nine years old he made a plan to become the best safety in the world and he made it happen. Boom.
The lunch ladies. But not like the ones from your high school…
After lunch we explored the explored the IDEA Fit expo. The best fitness apparel, equipment, music and fuel companies are here to show off their goods!
I tried these egg whites chips that were surprisingly good!
A certain famous blogger – Blogilates has a booth here too! She has the cutest gear and bags.
I met her at the Venus Williams / Jamba Juice event and she’s as cute as ever!
I did a short lil dance workout at the Reebok booth with Gina too. Mexican rhythm represent!
UPDATED: I will be running the RW Half Marathon in Bethlehem, PA Oct 20th!
