The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) announce that their seventh annual Optima Conference will include a registration option for free access to learning sessions, exclusive insights, and related knowledge focused on the latest science and trends in fitness and wellness.
The conference will be accessible online from October 21-23, 2021 with complimentary registration.
“Optima brings together the brightest minds and newest ideas in the fitness and wellness movement. By offering free registration, we are making it as easy as possible for everyone to access the transformational knowledge and tools they can use to help more and more people lead healthier and happier lives.”
— Laurie McCartney, President of NASM and AFAA
In 2020 more than 15,000 fitness professionals attended Optima in the conference’s first virtual year, and the event won a Gold Stevie Award for “Best Educational Conference.” This year’s event is expected to attract an even larger audience.
The 3-day conference will include more than 100 sessions from leaders in fitness and wellness, hands-on guided workouts with different modalities for various fitness levels and populations, along with valuable opportunities for the fitness and wellness community to network with thought leaders in a state-of-the-art virtual environment.
Attendees will have free access to expert-led discussions on a wide range of relevant and timely topics including the rise of the Hybrid Training Model, stress reduction, pain management, how food affects mood, the importance of sleep, and boosting brain health with cognitive tasks.
In addition to the learning and networking sessions, Optima 2021 will include a Virtual Expo Hall, where sponsors and exhibitors can demonstrate their latest products and solutions related to fitness, nutrition, and wellness. For fitness professionals looking to add additional continuing education units (CEUs) to their certification and licenses, NASM and AFAA will offer a paid option for all three days of the conference.
