Conference Highlights November 2013

We filmed sessions at our ECA/ THRIVE Florida fitness conference!  They will be available on our web site shortly – So if you missed the event ? Stay tuned! You can still be a part of it.

What makes for a great conference experience?  Is it the location? The presenters? The programming? Is it the customer service or the vibe you feel when you are there? Is it the information you take home that sets you apart from your competition or lifts your skill level to the next rung? Maybe it’s the special events or networking? or sometimes it’s the chance to just get away and be with people that understand you the best.

It is ALL those reasons!  If you missed ECA /THRIVE, your next chance is coming with ECA/ OBOW NYC! Yes, our hottest event is only months away!  March 7 -9th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel! We took a look at our programming and experience and kicked it up a notch higher. We have included a fitness fan program, student rates and more, so you can bring friends and family that are not professionals and there is something for everyone, including an unbelievable Sunday Dance Program for fitness pros and enthusiasts alike.  There are more special events and functions so you can network and have a little fun! There are new presentations and presenters some never before seen at an industry event.  Go to the ECA Website in the next week or so for all the information. Take some time to look over all of the offering.  We have some amazing presentations and presenters for you again this year, with a few more surprises to be announced! This year priority pricing and first availability to the event will be by Web Site only!

ECA/THRIVE 2012!

The fall is upon us and of course my thoughts immediately jump to our ECA/THRIVE event. One of the reasons the THRIVE event is so special is because of it’s blissful location! The Marriott’s Harbor Beach Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale is Oceanfront with a very well appointed five star Spa. This ambiance lends an air of rejuvenation and relaxation to an already extraordinary event. Far too often the life of a fitness professional revolves around being there for everyone else. We are the motivators, the coaches, the ones to help others reach their goals. It is nice every now and then to be able to take some time for yourself. The THRIVE event allows for every possibility. We can learn new concepts, develop new training techniques, go for a dip in the ocean or get a much needed full body massage. There is yoga
on the beach, beach volleyball, aquatic events, boot camp, dance, yoga, pilates and everything in between!
I look forward to this event every year and this one is no exception.
I am happy to say we have more new presenters and presentations than ever! It is very gratifying to see new talent from our industry and the continuation of new ideas and products. I hope many of you take this opportunity to join us this year… there is no time like the present. Don’t wait for something to happen, take control now and make a plan to better your life and career immediately…
BE PRESENT!
