3 ways to sweat like a fitness insider this March


ECA World FitnessFor trainers and fitness instructors, the ECA/OBOW World Fitness Conference is like the healthy food world’s Expo West or the tech industry’s CES.

Each year, it gives fitness pros three days to present new methods and class innovations, learn from each others’ techniques, and scout workout trends.

While it’s built for industry insiders, workout enthusiasts are welcome, too, and this year’s event—from March 19 to 22 at the Marriott in Times Square—includes presentations that would appeal to an even broader swath of the wellness-interested.

Marc Bubbs, ND, is leading sessions on the hot topic of hormones related to weight-loss and dairy’s place in a healthy diet, for example, while Jordan Metzl, MD, will speak about whether doctors should prescribe exercise (his answer, we predict, is yes), and Destructively Fit founder Jodi Rubin will address eating disorders among athletes.

Fitness classes are still the focus, though, so we rounded up three stand-out ones that will appeal to a few different workout personalities, in case you want to HIIT up (ha!) the conference for the first time this year. —Jamie McKillop
