Sorry about the long title and all the exclamation points, but I have some really exciting news that I want to share with my health and fitness blogging friends. You may remember that I am an IDEA Inspired Advisor, one of 12 terrific women who were honored by IDEA for our dedication to educating our readers about the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. As part of that team, we met last August during the 2013 IDEA World Fitness Convention to discuss the possibility of creating a blogging conference as part of the 2014 event.

BlogfestThat right. I am announcing the Inaugural IDEA World Fitness Blogfest, which will take place in Anaheim California on August 14-17, 2014 as part of IDEA World Fitness Convention.

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. You can see the complete schedule here.

    I think this is an AWESOME idea! I really want to improve my blogging and network with others but also wanted to go to the conference sessions to soak up as much as I can. So THANK you for clearing up what would have been quite the struggle of a decision – blog fest vs convention. I am so happy I won’t have to choose, I will get to enjoy both!!

    I am so annoyed, I am in Anaheim this summer until the 8thAugust,so I unfortunately miss the conference. I would have loved to have been there. Maybe next time.
