A massive list of fitness conferences

Update! I will NOT be attending DCAC this year. If you are going to be there, have fun!

I’ve been researching various workshops and conferences to attend before the end of next year, and I wanted to share the fruits of my labor. I’ve decided to attend the DCAC Fitness Convention in Alexandria, VA August 4-8, 2010. I’ve not been to DCAC before, so this will be interesting. The last conference I attended was Florida MANIA, which did not earn me any STAR Points for Spinning. But at DCAC I’ll be getting NASM, AFAA and Spinning CEU’s, so it is one-stop shopping for me!

If you are interested in DCAC, it will be in Alexandria, VA August 4-8. If you want to know more about DCAC or other major conferences, here is a compilation of what I considered before deciding to go to DC this year!

  1. Hi Krista! I just came upon your blog as I was searching for endurance playlist ideas for my Saturday spinning class. I love the information you have here…nicely done! I actually live in the Arlington/Alexandria VA area & was toying with the idea of going to DCAC (I went 2 years ago)….so maybe I’ll see you there!

  2. I’m going to DCAC too. I was disappointed because I couldn’t get into any of the spinning workshops. They were full already. 😦

    • I actually meant to post a follow up, and I will do that now. I am *NOT* attending DCAC because I couldn’t get into any spinning classes either. Complete bummer! Glad to see you over at pedal-on as well, Leslie. Take care!
