ECA/NYC is the first fitness conference I ever attended in the US, and it's the one I look forward to most every year. That being said, whether it's in New York, Florida or California, ECA is synonymous with talent, integrity and inspiration. Here are 10 great reasons you should attend the next ECA event.
1. The talent.
ECA presenters are incredibly inspiring. They help refuel and motivate, allowing us as instructors and personal trainers to continue doing what we do best, share our passion of/for exercise and wellbeing. These talented human beings allow us to dream, and believe that we too may one day be leaders and trendsetters in the fitness industry.
2. The sessions.
Having to choose between so many great sessions is a blessing. And spending the day learning and sweating is a pure delight! ECA is like a day camp for grown ups or even a Club Med, with hours of moving, learning and laughing. No such thing as too much fun!
3. The city.
Being in New York City is a reason in itself to attend the ECA/NYC fitness conference. How exciting is to be in New York, on Broadway, at the Marriott Marquis? Whether you're from New York, or from out of town, being in The City, on Broadway and 45thStreet makes the experience that much more exciting. Not to mention the energy of colleagues that are driven by the same passion, and the inspiration left, right and center. You must attend to see for yourself.
4. The bonding.
Whether it be in a workshop where you connect with someone or at the closest Starbucks while standing in line amongst fitness peeps dressed in Lululemon apparel, anywhere you go you are surrounded with the amazing energy of people that love what they do and believe in the art of exercise.
5. The inspiration.
During the conference, or on the return home, part of the pleasure is reminiscing about past sessions and remembering all the great moments of bonding with people met in workshops, lectures and social events. Chatting with presenters, bonding over dinner after a full day of fun, shopping at the Trade Show, etc. are just a few of the memories you will treasure for a very long time.
6. The mindset, the values.
