APPLICATIONS HAVE CLOSED! Open Call for Speakers at FitBloggin’ 16

FitBloggin Speakers


Speaker applications are now open for FitBloggin’16 and will remain open until September 30, 2015 at midnight ET.  We are ready to hear from you to create an exceptional schedule and content selections for next year. If you’re an expert, have a story that needs to be told, and can impart some necessary wisdom upon our community, then we want to hear from you!


There will be four main content tracks this year. This will allow attendees to focus on key areas of interest and get the most out of their time at FitBloggin’.


There will be a few different types of sessions. Again, this will ensure that each content type is presented and received in the best possible format.

  • Break-Out Session: Audience size will be about one-fourth of attendees to host larger presentations and panels.
  • Small Group Discussions: Audience size will be less than 40 people to encourage roundtable/group discussions.
  • Fitness Class: Audience size will vary as experts lead our attendees through exciting workouts and fitness demonstrations.

  1. This does not include applications for the Ignite Fitness keynote presentation. More news on that at another time.
  2. Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we will receive, we will not be able to reply to everyone.
  3. Speakers receive a full-access pass to the conference. All other expenses (including travel and hotel) are the responsibility of the speaker. Please do not apply if you will be unable to attend for financial reasons. It’s not fair to other applicants.
  4. We look forward to working with you to make this a FitBloggin’ to remember!
