ASCM conference

Posted in Uncategorized by A Different Fit on April 9, 2012

I was in LV last week for the ACSM annual fitness summit which was held at the Paris hotel.  I must admit it was hard for me to get my head around the fact a health & fitness conference would be held in Vegas…it was cigarette smoke everywhere!  They design the hotels there so you have to go thru the casinos to get anywhere…including out the door!  Which didn’t help very much because it was even hard to get a good breath of non smoke-filled air outside.   I have been to LV many times before and remember it not being a place I cared for but this year it was worse.    I had planned the trip way back in January and decided to try the newly renovated rooms at the MGM Grand….big mistake!  We arrived late on Monday night and they informed me they didn’t have the room I had booked months back!!  Needless to say this did not go over very well with me.  After going back and forth with the “pretending” management until 1:30am and then again the next morning at 6am we finally got our room.  It wasn’t what they promised but would work since I didn’t have time to switch before my classes started.  But I will never stay with MGM again!!!

Off to class finally.  My first day was a great day filled with nutrition.  Several great professionals spoke about nutrition and the latest data on it.  Do you know the 9 super foods?  That sugar regardless of form is still a sweetener/sugar and our body’s response to it?  How important is drinking enough water?  I learned some great tips I look forward to sharing with you all soon.

Other classes were TRX suspension training, Bosu, stretching, group training, etc.   Great research to support whether the latest gizmos & gadgets really work or not.  I had classes in training  clients with arthritis & hypertension,  timing of nutrition in regards to your workouts or goals.  It was a lot of information in four days!

At night we visited some great restaurants:

We also went to see the Blue Man group…fun show!

In looking back now it was a lot in a short period of time….which is normal for me, trying to get it all in while I can!

I am happy to be back in my studio now and looking forward to Spring!
