Program Tracks

The IDEA & ACSM Health & Fitness Summit features three lecture tracks that bridge the gap between the science of sports medicine and practical applications for fitness professionals.

Through our diverse range of programming, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in pre-conferences, hands-on workshops, panel discussions and lectures that cover a wide range of disciplines. Our presenters highlight practical applications that will help you apply what you will learn at the IDEA & ACSM Health & Fitness Summit into everyday situations.
