Fitness Education Institute (FEI) was founded in 2010. Initially started as a way to connect Educators and Presenters from the fitness industry with smaller venue host sites FEI has grown to incorporate many avenues within the fitness business but always centered around education.

fei-eclipseIn June of 2012 FEI held its first annual Eclipse Conference now in its third year! One of the unique qualities that separate FEI from other companies and events is the selection process by which presenters and presentations are chosen. The choice is built on the relationship and quality of the presenter along with a continued need for change and improvement in the industry. 90% of the course work involves practical applications. Hands ON and the lectures give you useable models and resources to apply to your practice or business.

Although a “1 MAN” show there are and continue to be many contributors to our growth. We’ve had sponsors and educators from Power Systems, TrakFitness, Performance University and many more.

One more item that I feel is paramount to our company is that I am still an active trainer, small group and group exercise instructor and continuing education provider for multiple organizations. I am out in the field day in and day out thus never losing touch. I look for trends and steer clear of “one hit wonders”. This industry is my career and my career is making this industry better for all!

Functional Aging Specialist Certification

The population of older adults is exploding and they want to continue to work, travel and play for as long as possible. Traditional “senior” exercise programs are somewhat beneficial but they do not maximize functional ability which is so crucial in later life. In this workshop you will learn innovative exercise strategies, techniques and movements for clients over the age of 50 that have been shown to be critical to functional aging. Through lecture and hands-on learning you will develop the knowledge and skills to perform functional fitness assessments and create functional exercise programs for a wide variety of older clients. Become the “go to” expert in your community for training mature adults. Attendees will have access to the Functional Aging Specialist online learning modules, some of which will need to be completed prior to attending the event. To become certified attendees will have the opportunity to complete the online exam.
