You guys, I AM SO EXCITED!!! I have been wanting to go to a conference since I started blogging and I can’t believe it’s happening, and in just a couple of months! It also checks off another item on my 25 before 25 list – travel somewhere I’ve never been before! And it’ll be my 2nd time in California ever (both of which will have happened this year). I’ll be attending the 2014 IDEA World Fitness BlogFest with Sweat Pink!
For the first time ever, IDEA World is dedicating a segment of their annual Fitness Convention to health and fitness bloggers. IDEA World Fitness Blogfest will offer advanced blogging sessions, unforgettable celebrity workouts, and exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the largest fitness conference in the world.
The IDEA World Fitness Blogfest will take place at the same time as the IDEA World Fitness Convention. You have an opportunity to be a part of a unique blogging conference designed for health and fitness bloggers, and as a Blogfest participant you will get exclusive VIP Press access to all the Convention sessions and activities, where you will have one-of-a-kind fitness experiences and face-time with over 300 brands.
Some of the Blogfest sessions will address the business of blogging, tips on meal prepping and how to blog about it, how to approach brands and sell yourself, and blog design. There will be plenty of “tweet breaks,” and a lot of opportunities to get your sweat on with celebrity fitness pros Tony Horton, Tara Stiles, and the Sweat Guru crew.
With keynote speaker Jillian Michaels, special presentations from Cassey from Blogilates, Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean, Gina from Fitnessista, and Monica from Run Eat Repeat, you know you will have fun, learn a lot, and have an amazing networking experience.

Check out this schedule, it is just going to be SO AMAZING!
I can’t wait to learn from some of the top fitness bloggers around, as well as fitness professionals like Blogilates, Jillian Michaels, Kelly Olexa, and so many more! I seriously can’t contain my excitement and anxiousness for this conference. I’m also excited to meet all my fellow Sweat Pink ambassadors and my friend Lyndsay from The Balanced Brunette!
Mike is actually going to come with me to California (not to the conference), but he will hang out with his aunt and uncle while I’m at the conference. They actually live near Anaheim so it’s PERFECT! We would be idiots to not take advantage of the opportunity. We’re also probably going to stay a couple days extra so I can spend time with his family after the conference is over, too. Plus I actually want to experience California this time! (See my experience from my first time there here.)
Lyndsay and I picked out our sessions that we want to take during the second half of the conference, where we get access to the fitness convention part of IDEA World. Here’s some of the sessions we’ll be taking:
- Fearless Yoga: Conquering Self-Imposed Limitations
- The Power of Transformation – What Would It Take for You to Realize Just How Powerful You Are?
- Make Your Own Rules-How to Achieve Your Most Radiant Self From the Inside Out
- Fitness Writing: Blogs, Websites and Magazines
- Social Media Makeover – Seven Mistakes to Avoid
- Best Practices for Integrating Devices and Apps With Your Clients
Who else will be at BlogFest? I can’t wait to meet you all!!! I also need to get some business cards, stat 🙂
