It’s hard to believe Fitbloggin’ 2015 has already come and gone! We had such a great time with everyone in Denver this year…and it sounds like you all enjoyed it, too!
You can review the official conference schedule here, but what you won’t find on that page is what meant the most to each of you. That’s what the recaps are for, and you guys do a brilliant job year after year of pulling those together. This year’s highlights included a scavenger hunt around downtown Denver, a lip sync battle, a decadent California Avocado lunch, a proper English tea, rooftop yoga, along with some new and exciting speakers, sessions, and workouts. After all, we had to get some work done, too!
In no particular order, here are this year’s Fitbloggin’ recaps.
My Tribe – My Roots to Grow
Never in my life have I experienced anything close to the phenomenon that happens at this conference- a few hundred people, all of different ages, shapes, sizes and abilities, coming together to celebrate, positively and lovingly, a common interest.
Fitbloggin 2015: Body Love – One Step at a Time
In that moment, I was exactly one mile above sea level in the middle of a fun run, having a BLAST, and feeling like a freaking rockstar!
My favorite thing about Fitbloggin’ is that it’s so inclusive. There are no cliques, no judgement, lots of emotional breakthroughs and tears, etc.

Fitbloggin 15: Why I Attend This Conference – NoThanksToCake
It is amazing what can happen when twenty healthy-minded, goal-chasers get in a room and start talking about real life. There was laughter, there was applause, there were tears. I think we all walked out knowing each other a little better, gaining perspective on what we are all trying to accomplish…
Getting Sweaty at Fitbloggin – Got2Run4Me
