IDEA Personal Trainer Event / Conference in Alexandria, VA

This past February, I had the pleasure of photographing the IDEA Personal Trainer Institute in Alexandria, VA for the fifth time.  Personal trainers, training managers and entrepreneurs descend upon this event to learn from the industry's top instructors so that they can gain inspiration, insights and the purpose necessary for a fulfilling and financially rewarding career.

As you can see from the photographs below, this event is filled with action, intensity, fun, and learning. 

IDEA World Fitness Convention - Los Angeles - August 2013

Attendance at IDEA’s annual World Fitness Convention™ has grown from the original 600 to over 5,000.  This year it was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  From a photographer's perspective, it is the highlight of my year.  It is three and a half days of energy, motion, and inspiration and my job is to capture it through images. 

There are so many great sessions going on that the biggest challenge is to try to cover the right sessions and stay long enough to capture the high energy and inspirational moments.   The days fly by.  

One of the most fun sessions was in the Showcase Room with Shaun T (creator of the very popular INSANITY DVD workout), Tony Horton, and Chalene Johnson.  They each came out individually and did an amazing workout with over 1000 people in the room.  My daughter has Shaun T's DVD set and was extremely envious that I saw him LIVE.
