The Fitness Summit is quickly approaching!

2012 March 4
by Alan Aragon

Mark your calendars for May 18th-19th

The planets are aligning, the Fates are conspiring, and the ultimate time of reckoning is upon us. The 10th anniversary of the Fitness Summit is right around the corner, and registration is as easy as visiting this page. Whether you’re in the fitness business, or simply are passionate about fitness, you will get tons of practical knowledge from the Summit.

The biggest difference between the Summit & other conferences is that you get to hang out with speakers (& the attendees) for 2 days straight. Other conferences begin & end with the lecture/workshop time. At the Fitness Summit, it never ends until you get back on the horse that brought you there. The atmosphere is very accommodating,  non-judgmental, relaxed, & informal. Even Crossfitters will not be denied attendance. After the workshops end, the real bonding (bromantic & other) begins. Here’s a quick breakdown of the speakers, in no particular order of awesomeness:

  • Lou Schuler — This man has been to Mars & back, twice. He is an internationally celebrated author, and does not do public book signings because traffic laws and fire codes would be violated. He is a sage in this industry, and any trainer who hasn’t heard of him should be tarred & feathered.
  • Nick Tumminello — Nick is a true juggernaut. If I’m not mistaken, the word juggernaut was created because of Nick. I saw him lecture for the first time at last year’s Summit, and I was utterly blown away at his knowledge & delivery – so was everyone else. The room was in shambles; Nick destroyed the place with his awesomeness. You better act like you heard me, cuzz.
  • Eric Cressey — I’m extremely excited to see Eric speak for the first time. His reputation in the fitness industry precedes him. He owns a successful training facility, holds a full mantle of records in powerlifting, and I’m fairly certain everything he touches turns to gold (or at least bacon). As far as being a superstar goes, Chuck Norris could not hold a candle to Eric Cressey’s jockstrap.
  • Alan Aragon — This guy is famous for trolling the Paleos & getting them extremely pissed off, yet they STILL love him. In fact, lust might be a more accurate word. Paleos hang onto his every word, sort of like crack addiction. If there’s anything about Alan that’s worth seeing, it’s the pop-locking he does on the lecture stage, and the karaoke singing he does offstage.

More details about registration, lodging, CEUs, etc, are on the Summit page right here. I hope to see at least 10% of the internet show up to this life-altering event. We’ll have a blast learning, eating, and raising a toast to the fall of Sauron & the triumph of Middle Earth. See you in May!

    The Paleos love Alan because he doesn’t big use words, and for much of the presentation he doesn’t use words at all. Basically, with his grunts and hand motions, he speaks Paleo.

    If I lived in the US I would arrive there a day early and camp out overnight to get front row seats.:) I agree on the idea to film this. Will they film this? I will buy the disc if they do.

    All — This won’t be filmed, as far as I know. It might be better that way, since there’s always a good stream of offensive content that wouldn’t sit well with the general public.

    Perfect planning to get perfect body is mandatory, but most of the people failed to follow some weight loss program due to their busy schedule. They should follow some weight loss programs to get shape and fit.
