The Women’s Fitness Summit

Share This:

Way back in May I made the trek out to Kansas City, Missouri* to take part in The Fitness Summit.

It’s an annual gathering of both fitness professionals and fitness enthusiasts which has seemingly grown in popularity year in and year out, and has earned the reputation as one of the “go to” fitness events of the year.

I was lucky enough to not only be invited out this past Spring, but to be one of the speakers – alongside other industry big wigs such as Bret Contreras, Alan Aragon, Dr. Brad Shoenfeld, Bryan Krahn, Mike T.Nelson, Dave Dellanave, Dr. Spencer Nadolsky, Roland and Galina Denzel, as well as Dr. Cassandra Forsythe.

It was an amazing experience and you can read all about it HERE.

As it happened, due to the popularity of her presentation (and the friendly back-and-forth debate which ensued), I remember Cassandra (Forsythe) toying with the idea of organizing a Women’s Fitness Summit down the road.

Well that day has come.

Cassandra will be the first one to tell you she’s no “man hater,” but she felt there was a unique need for a conference dedicated solely towards women and female specific topics.

In short:  she recognizes that women and women’s topics are grossly under-represented in the fitness industry.  I couldn’t agree more.

While I’m a dude and immediately gravitate towards visions of pajama pillow fights and Dirty Dancing dialogue whenever I hear about a group of women getting together under one roof – Sorry! It’s in my DNA! – I can assure you that that won’t be the case here.

Instead, what’s going to happen is that a group of highly educated and highly respected women in the fitness industry are going to get together and talk about female-specific topics.  Such as:

  • Athletic Amenorrhea (losing your period)
  • Urinary Incontinence (no, you shouldn’t pee your pants when you exercise)
  • Specific Training Needs and Wants of Women
  • How to Train and Inspire Your Female Clients Correctly
  • Pregnancy Training
  • Exercise and Training for Menopause
  • Influence of the Menstrual Cycle on Exercise & Nutrition
  • Training Requirements of Female Endurance Athletes
  • And more…

And, no BOYS are allowed!!!!

Pffft, whatever……;o)


Women fitness enthusiasts and fitness professionals. Slated speakers include:  Dr. Cassandra Forsythe, Molly Galbraith, Dr.Brooke Kalanick, Dr. Susan Kleiner, Julia Ladewski, Jen Sinkler, Marni Sumbal, Elsbeth Vaino, Joy Victoria, and Ann Wendel.

It’s time for women to hear and learn the right way to train their bodies for their goals.  Plus, it’s a wonderful chance to meet the women experts who are transforming the industry!

You’ll get to meet the right women to admire and respect.  Forget about movie stars and media “experts.”  It’s time to discover new “heroes” that understand you and actually look out for your best interests.

You’ll discover how to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle while still being an outstanding wife, mother, and friend.  You DO NOT have to be a Super Woman to stay fit and healthy while still fitting everything else in.  You DO NOT have to compromise your marriage, family or your own personal health to get the body you want and deserve.

It’s time for you and all women to feel understood, empowered, confident and beautiful in their own skin – cellulite, stretch marks, and all!  😉

* = Yep, that’s right, Missouri.  I bet you thought Kansas City was in Kansas, right?  Well, technically, there is a Kansas City in Kansas, but that’s not the Kansas City I’m referring to. I’m talking about the Kansas City in Missouri.  

Confused yet?  What were we talking about again?

Oh yeah, pillow fights!

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
