Helix Lateral TrainerHarley Pasternak, a celebrity trainer, nutrition expert, and best-selling author, knows a good thing when he sees it.

“The IHRSA trade show, held in San Diego, was definitely the place to be if you’re searching for all of the latest and greatest fitness gadgets, exercise equipment, and any fat-burning machine you can think of,” he wrote in a recent blog. “I’ve been attending the show for nearly 20 years, and remember when fitness innovations like the elliptical, arc trainer, and spin cycles were first introduced.”

Pasternak then went on to identify and describe four products that were among his personal favorites - ones that he’s considering purchasing for his own studio.

There are many reasons to get active

Two IHRSA 2014 attendees tell the world why they get active.IHRSA hopes its simple question will go a long way to helping more people around the world live a healthier lifestyle.

This month IHRSA launched its #WhyGetActive campaign. It asks, “Why do you get active?, with the hope that the movement will show how the benefits regular exercise can benefit physical and mental health, productivity, economic stability, and general quality-of-life.

The inspirational movement had a soft launch during the IHRSA Annual International Convention & Trade Show in San Diego in March where hundreds of attendees shared with IHRSA why they pursue active and healthy lifestyles. They then shared it on social media using the hashtag #WhyGetActive.

And if you ask 100 people what their favorite part of the event, which was March 12-15 at the San Diego Convention Center, you would get many different answers. The same would be true for what they were most surprised by or what they will take home and impart on their staff or implement in their club.
