"As a club owner, I was feeling burned out and in need of direction. After getting to know other club owners, I realized that many are struggling with the same issues. Once I understood that, it was easier to network to come up with solutions to my specific issues. I walked away rejuvenated and ready to move forward with much needed changes."
"Even though we are a small mom and pop training studio, we never felt less important than the large gym owners. Thanks, Trina Gray, Todd Durkin, Chris Stevenson, Ashley Selman, and the many others for creating a passionate environment for learning, team building and networking."
"In an industry that is constantly changing, the IDEA World Club & Studio Summit is by far the best place to learn, grow and stay ahead of the game when it comes to leadership development and future growth for our companies."
"This conference inspired and motivated me to want to immediately get back to my gym and start working on things. It also made me realize how lucky I am that I have the best job in the world! I am a life transformer!"
"I absolutely loved IDEA World Club & Studio Summit! What a great way for successful club and studio owners to share ideas and best practices. The variety of speakers was just right."

How do I get CECs for the sessions I attend?
Your proof of attendance and CEC credits are on your CEC certificate, which you can access anytime after the conference at www.ideafit.com/myeducation. Workouts do not qualify for CECs. They are designed to be just that, a workout. No CEC-able education is associated with them.
Which certification agencies offer CECs for this event?
The credits you can earn at this event are recognized by the following agencies: ACE, ACSM, AFAA, BOC, NASM, NFPT, NSCA, W.I.T.S., Cooper Institute, NETA, NESTA, and NFPT. If your certification agency is not listed, simply check with the agency to see what credits it allows.
How many CECs can I earn at the event?
You can earn up to 24 CEC hours by attending the full event and even more if you attend the preconference sessions. That’s enough credits for your certification renewal! (Please check with your specific certification agency for their renewal criteria).
What do I do if zero credits are assigned to my scheduled session?
CECs are assigned by the certification agency, not IDEA. Certification agencies base credits on the education provided and presenter qualifications. If you would like to attend a different session that is offering CEC credit, simply make the change online to your schedule prior to attending the event, or to make changes to your schedule on-site, visit Attendee Registration.
How many CECs are offered for each session?
Generally, you’ll receive one CEC per contact hour for workshops and lectures. If you attend a 2-hour workshop, you’ll receive up to 2 credit hours. We are in the process of getting approvals from each of the agencies above and will post the credits in session selection as soon as they are available. That way you’ll know exactly how many credits the session you are interested in attending is approved for by your certification agency. Check out how many CECs were offered at last year’s event here
Do I get CECs for completing the preconference and postconference sessions?
Yes, at the end of the preconference or postconference session you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion that will include the number of CECs for attending. Make a copy for your records and send a copy to your certification agency.
