This years IDEA Personal Trainer Institute in Alexandria, VA was the fifth IDEA event that I have photographed over the last two years. Three events have been at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, one has been at the Los Angeles Conventioin Center, and one at the San Diego Convention Center.
I look forward to these events every year. There is so much positive energy in every session that the days just fly by and I get the opportunity to take some great photos in a great environment.
Most of the attendees are trainers from around the world. They attend leading-edge sessions in the areas of nutrition, wellness, positive well-being, and specific-population programming, along with the most effective new strategies for social media, marketing, management, and generating business and income growth. There are also a lot of high-energy and very exhausting sessions that make sure that all the trainers learn by doing the latest and greatest training techniques.
