Energised thoughts and interesting links for you…

We think it is really important to keep up to date with the industry’s latest ideas and annually attend several conferences, as well as updating our knowledge with development courses.

Head Coach Kim, plus three other Energised ladies, Katy, Gail & Sarah headed up to Birmingham NEC, for the Leisure Industry Week and Register of Exercise Profressionals (REPS) Conference. EP Coach Alex & Paul were holding the fort with Bootcamps back in Bristol.

At the REPS Conference ( http://www.exerciseregister.org) there were many interesting speakers including a briliant talk to start the day off with Pete Cohen, inspiring, thought provoking and motivating – encouraging you to Get out of your Own Way and allow yourself to realise your full potential – in line with the Energised philosophy … he has just launched his new website – check it out: http://www.weightlossguru.com/

Other interesting people speaking included Rebecca Weissbort and the Top Tips to Motivation, Professor Helen Dawes on Neurological Conditions, YMCA Fit on Postural Assessment & Paradoxical Obesity from Premier Global.

Outside of the REPS conference there were some interesting things going on at LIW….
