A few weeks ago, my “fitness brother-in-crime” Martinus at 300 Pounds and Running and I were chatting about upcoming conferences when he told me about FitSocial. I had never heard of this conference so I was excited to learn more. I got more and more excited about what I read on their site and what I Googled from attendees from the previous two years. So I am super excited to share that I will be attending the:
Since I go to many events/conferences for work, I had to allot myself only one fitness conference and one travel-related conference for This Diva Travels. One of my goals for this year was BALANCE. Hmm…let’s see I do with that. I.had.a.blast. at FitBloggin’ 12 and I will miss so many of the returning attendees, information, and experiences. I wish I could go to both! The Fitness and Health Social Media Conference offers more scientific content related to fitness and health and social media. My inner brainiac DIGS this. The Fitness and Health Social Media Conference also stresses attendees will be “educated, inspired, and [to] grow your online influence”. Sold and sold.
What I am looking forward to at the Fitness & Health Social Media Conference:
1. Visiting Colorado: I have never been to Colorado and it looks magnificent. I will enjoy the beautiful September weather and scenery. There is even an optional (well, not optional for me–very much mandatory for my body and soul!) hike excursion to the Flatiron Mountains. SWOON.
2. Access to a brand-new, four-level, $70 million building at the Anschutz Center for Health and Wellness that was only completed in April, 2012: Um, hello…super psyched about this!
3. Presentations galore: Presentations on how to use social media in the communication of health and fitness. Topics will address blogging, website optimization, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, YouTube, and more. Presentations on the current state of health and fitness scientific research from some of the world’s top experts. Topic sessions like weight management and alternative medicine are very interesting to me.
4. Opportunities to network with other fitness and health professionals: Networking sounds a bit cold…I’ll all about making long-lasting relationships and having f-u-n while getting down to business.
5. Fitness activities: There are four scheduled fitness activities. Fingers crossed for yoga, boot camp or Crossfit, and Zumba! The classes haven’t been finalized but all sound great except of course my adversary running. Maybe I will learn to love running by September?
6. Healthy cooking demonstrations: I am still on Cloud Nine after spending the day with Iron Chef Jose Garces so this is right up my alley!
7. LARABAR, American Council on Exercise, and Bliss.com are just a few of the very cool sponsors I hope to connect with!
