This year's IDEA personal Trainer Institute was held in February at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, VA. This was the fifth year that I have photographed the conference and it never gets old. It never fails to amaze me how I go into these poorly lit, vanilla hotel conference rooms and see activities and exercises that I have never seen before. The teachers/instructors do a great job of bringing new ideas (no pun intended) every year to help the trainers keep their programs for their clients interesting and fun.
You can see below the cover for this year's brochure. The photograph of the young man in the blue shirt was taken by me at last year's conference.
One of my favorite photographs that I took was of a tall muscular man holding a "Surge." In the original photograph was a plain hotel conference room background, and lifted him out of that photograph and put him in a park in New York City.
