We enjoyed chatting with Merrithew® Lead Instructor Trainers Jenna Hansen and Carol Earle, who share insights on what sets IDEA World apart and why it's a must-attend experience for fitness and Pilates enthusiasts.
What is IDEA World?
“IDEA World stands out among other fitness events because it's not solely focused on education. It's a place where you can learn, grow, and make connections that have a profound impact on both your personal and professional life,” Jenna says.
The IDEA community is all about people – individuals dedicated to learning, growing, sharing, and building each other up. While you will undoubtedly gain valuable education, the friendships and connections forged, especially when you attend the Merrithew classes being offered —extend far beyond the convention's end.
Learn from the pros and earn your CECs
Merrithew’s involvement in IDEA World translates into a multitude of benefits for Pilates enthusiasts. Attendees have the unique opportunity to learn from Merrithew's renowned instructors and experts in the field.
These instructors bring their extensive knowledge and experience to the forefront, delivering engaging and informative sessions that cater to practitioners of all levels, from beginners to advanced students.
“I am excited to guide attendees through several engaging workshops and workouts, giving students the opportunity to advance their education. The best part about the whole event is that you get to earn your CECs when you attend the workshops. I am very excited to teach some of the most popular STOTT PILATES® workshops that include various props such as the Mini Stability Ball™ and the Stability Barrel™!” Carol says.
The IDEA MEGA Circuit
“Attendees can expect a variety of sessions at IDEA World, including the innovative IDEA Mega Circuit. This session provides participants with a tantalizing taste of different modalities, workout tools, and the latest trends in a short amount of time,” Jenna says.
“Brace yourself for an invigorating STOTT PILATES® circuit that will target and strengthen all four layers of your abdominal muscles, using the incredible Mini Stability Ball™. Prepare to experience a transformative journey that will leave you with a profound understanding and an entirely fresh perspective on your abdominals!” Jenna says.
Career Discovery Day
Merrithew will also be participating in the IDEA World Career Discovery Day.
“IDEA World's Career Discovery Day provides high school and college students invaluable insights into the fitness industry. It's an opportunity to hear from successful fitness leaders who share their journeys and offer guidance for aspiring professionals,” Jenna says.
“Just like when you were unsure about the path to follow in your younger years, Career Discovery Day aims to provide answers, guidance, and connections for students looking to pursue a fitness career. This also opens doors to becoming a Merrithew Instructor.” Jenna says.
“Whether it's finding a mentor, exploring different fitness specialties, or networking with industry professionals, Career Discovery Day equips students with the knowledge and inspiration to kickstart their fitness careers,” Carol says.
Fostering a sense of community and networking opportunities
In addition to the educational aspect, Merrithew's presence fosters a sense of community among Pilates enthusiasts. IDEA World serves as a gathering place for like-minded individuals who share a passion for Pilates and fitness. Within the Merrithew community, attendees can connect with fellow enthusiasts, build new relationships, and exchange ideas and experiences.
“As you explore the event, you'll encounter numerous networking opportunities that can lead to lifelong friendships and professional collaborations. Engaging with exhibitors at the tradeshow is a fantastic way to meet like-minded individuals, discover new business prospects, and share knowledge,” Carol says.
IDEA World is not your average fitness event; it's an experience that combines education, inspiration, and community building. Whether you're a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, or coach, IDEA World offers the perfect platform to connect with like-minded individuals, gain valuable knowledge, and leave inspired to make a positive impact in the fitness industry.
