Going Out With A Bang...

This 2020 Summit is going to be the last one! It's been a hell of a 10+ year run. I can't thank everyone enough who have attended or spoken at these events. I never thought the Summit would make it 4 years, let alone to No. 12 in 2020. I knew that the Summit wasn't going to go on forever. And 12 in 2020 is a good way to go out with one of our strongest speaking lineups ever.

Just select the livestream option at checkout and provide the email address you will be using to log in to the livestream. It's that simple.

The livestream option will also allow you to submit questions to presenters during our question and answer session and will also allow you to ask questions of Lou during the writer's roundtable. If you're at all interested in fitness writing, the writer's roundtable is worth the cost of admission itself, whether you're attending in person or watching from home.

Lou Schuler has contributed to over a dozen books. He's written and edited for multiple magazines and publications. He's worked with the biggest names in the industry. It's safe to say, he is a big deal.

At the speaking location, Lou takes time to sit down in a small group and offer you a chance to ask questions and offer advice on how to grow in the industry. If you're looking to be part of the fitness industry, this is almost a priceless experience.
