The 2017 Fitness Summit



Registration Process:

New attendees can register beginning Jan. 15. Registration for all attendees at that time goes up to $259 through March 1.

From March 1-March 31, registration is $275. From April 1-April 15, registration is $299. No registrations will be taken after April 15 unless we have cancellations.

Registration is open until we are sold out. We will give ample heads up about the possibility of selling out.


Simply put, the Fitness Summit is the most fun (and educational) fitness conference you will ever attend.

During the day at the Summit you get to be with all of the attendees and speakers. But the fun happens after each session, when you can hang out, eat, drink and talk shop with everyone else. It’s an approach that’s now often imitated but never authentically duplicated.

Why? Because we have the best attendees and speakers. Yeah, you may be nervous at first meeting a bunch of people you’ve only communicated with over the internet — or perhaps never even e-met at all — but trust us on this one. In just a short amount of time you’ll find that you’ve found 175 new friends and be having an incredible time talking fitness, or very likely, something else entirely.

LOCATION: Impact Elite, 7932 N. Oak Tfwy, Kansas City, Missouri

HOURS: 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. both days. Social functions begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. both Friday and Saturday.

CEUs: NSCA and NASM CEUs will once again be available upon approval. The 2016 Fitness Summit was worth 1.5 CEUs.

HOTEL: There is a group block of rooms reserved at the Courtyard Marriott at Briarcliff, just a 10-minute drive from the Summit site. Check back soon for the booking link for the hotel.

NOTE: If you’re staying Wednesday or Sunday night — or any night outside Thursday, Friday and Saturday — you must contact the hotel directly to register and get the group rate. You will not be able to get the room rate otherwise.

AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION: Rental cars are cheap in Kansas City, or you can choose to utilize Super Shuttle. Transportation to and from the hotel to the summit site is your own responsibility. Carpooling is encouraged, suggested and quite common.

LUNCH: Lunch for both days is included in your Summit registration fee.

DINNER: Dinner costs are paid for by attendees. Both evenings (Friday and Saturday) will include dinner, drinks and a fun atmosphere. Don’t make your own plans unless you’re feeling rebellious for some stupid reason and want to isolate yourself from everyone else.

DRINKS: Unless we’re at a restaurant, Summit social events are BYOB. Red X is within walking distance from the hotel. You’ll never forget your first Red X experience.

COMMUNICATION UPON REGISTRATION: The receipt you receive from PayPal upon payment is your confirmation email. You will receive all Summit communication to the email address you provide in the preferred email field during registration. Summit communication, including lunch preferences, attendance at social events, etc, will begin 4-6 weeks before the event. Itineraries will be emailed out no later than 10 days before the event.

FACEBOOK: You like us on Facebook, right?

QUESTIONS: Message us on Facebook. Student discounts are available.

REFUND POLICY: Full refunds are available on summit registrations through March 15. From March 16-April 15, 50% refunds are available. No refunds are available for cancellations after April 15.
