The 2016 Fitness Summit





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 100 new friends and be having an incredible time talking fitness, or very likely, something else entirely.


As always, the Summit will have Lou Schuler as emcee. And, as always, Alan Aragon will join us along with Bret Contreras. Here’s the rest of our 2016 lineup:
