With the emergence of the internet, information, whether accurate or not, is widely available and easily accessible. It can be extremely difficult finding fitness and health related resources that are reliable, trustworthy, and worth mentioning. After researching you will find a few that are noteworthy. One noteworthy association is Idea Health and Fitness Association (IDEA).

IDEA is a leading membership organization for health and fitness professionals. They provide up-to-date information on personal training, group fitness instruction, fitness business management, personal trainer certification, mind-body, yoga and Pilates resources, nutrition, and wellness. In addition they provide ongoing continuing fitness education information through their newsletters (IDEA Trainer Success, IDEA Fitness Manager), fitness magazine (IDEA Fitness Journal), educational events and a special member-only website. They truly are a great resource for expanding your current knowledge base, brushing up on old topics, or just to obtain CECs.

IDEA’s staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and quick to respond. However, their shining star would have to be their article database. It contains hundreds if not thousands of articles written by some of the top fitness professionals in the nation. If you are looking for an association that can provide you with not only current, but accurate information on a variety of topics, look no further than IDEA. You can learn more about IDEA at their website:
