I have been planning Blogfest 2018 since Blogfest 2017 and now Blogfest 2018 is finally here! To say I am excited would be an understatement! I requested time off from work in November and booked my hotel and airfare soon thereafter! Yes, I am excited.
This will be my second year at Blogfest! I attended for the first time last year and Blogfest 2017 was the highlight of my year! For those who don’t know what Blogfest is it is a fitness blogging conference within the IDEA World Fitness Convention. And it is hosted by Fit Approach (and we all know how much I love Fit Approach & Sweat Pink)! Blogfest 2018 runs Thursday and Friday and then we get to spend Saturday and Sunday enjoying everything the IDEA World Fitness Convention has to offer! The IDEA World Fitness Convention is unlike any other conference I have ever been too! See, your getting excited just reading this!
All of that is exciting in and of its self but then add on the items I am about to list and you are going to want to come next year! I promise!
The people who are invited to Blogfest are AMAZING! My husband and I joke about “my internet friend” but these internet friends are the aforementioned amazing people! Many of them are my Sweat Pink sisters! They are a community of people who believe that kicking ass is kicking ass, no matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, or what goals you’re chasing. Now you want to be part of this community! Anyway, I digress, these are people who are out to change the world! And I can’t wait to see them all!
The Knowledge Gained
This really should be the first thing but really the people are what make the knowledge gained so much fun! I am a geek who loves spreadsheets and learning so of course I love sitting through sessions learning more about blogging! The ladies of Fit Approach do an awesome job for finding amazing speakers!
Okay, so I love and hate the workouts! But mostly love! The best part of the workouts is that we typically get to try some of the newest workouts out there! Last year, we got to try out Strong by Zumba! Let’s just say this very uncoordinated person looked like a fool but had fun doing it! This year there is one that I am so excited to try out but I want to keep it under wraps until my Blogfest 2018 Recap. So keep an eye out because I will have a full recap of all the workouts after the conference!Why do I love #blogfest? It's the people, or is it the knowledge, maybe it's the workouts, and or could it be the expo? @fitapproach #SweatPink #IDEAWorldClick To Tweet
So the IDEA World Fitness Expo is one of the largest fitness expo if not the largest in the world! We get to preview the hottest new products before they are released to the masses! And it isn’t just products! It’s equipment, programs, technology, food (and good food and a lot of it), and apparel! Last year I had the honor of getting to meet Jen Widerstrom at the expo! I can’t wait to see who I get to meet this year!
Can you see why I am so excited for Blogfest 2018? There is so much in store for the short time I will spend in San Diego! I can’t wait! As I mentioned, keep an eye out because I will have a recap of it all as soon as the conference is over!
Does Blogfest sound exciting to you? Do you have a favorite conference? If so, what is it?
