2019 IDEA World Convention

When thousands of fitness pros from over 50 countries gather to connect, inspire, celebrate and learn, they light a spark that is felt around the globe.

Purpose, passion and people! The fitness industry is all about forging relationships that lift others up. Fitness professionals have energy to spare, and they are dedicated to mentoring new generations of pros, networking with peers, and motivating clients and participants every day.

The American-Hungarian Lifestyle Magazine had a chance to visit the 2019 IDEA World Convention and Expo and I have to tell you, it was really unbelievable!

The Anaheim Convention Center is huge, the classes, lectures were all over in the Convention Center and we really needed a map to find what we were looking for. My favorite was the nutrition pavilion where I was able to taste new, healthy products. It offered an impressive array of innovative products, programs and services. 

Being a Pilates Master Trainer as well, my favorite class was the Pilates session. Rooms were full of colors — green balls, red bands, orange rollers. Later the lights were down, and a soothing voice was leading a mindful movement session. Attendees were practicing advanced techniques in one room, scribbling notes in another, working their “cupcakes” in a third.

Since its inception in 2016, the IDEA World Club & Studio Summit has provided the best in hands-on, creative entrepreneurial magic, launching or reinvigorating numerous fitness businesses.
