If you’re just tuning in, we’re in the middle of a BlogFest post series introducing the brains behind this amazing health/fitness/blogger conference. [BTW you can enter to WIN a free pass to BlogFest from ValentineRD before 6/23.] Last week was Jamie King and today we’re meeting Kelli Davis of IDEA World!
Kelli is the Social Media Manager at IDEA Health & Fitness Association. We first met a few years back when I was invited to be an IDEA Inspired Advisor and every time I see her, I’m always impressed by her refreshing smile and positive energy! Read on for a few fun questions and answers from Kelli (and my comments in italics thrown in. 😉
Alright, Kelli, you grew up in the health and fitness industry. What is YOUR preferred way to stay fit?
I love to do yoga, go to dance classes like Zumba and hip hop and play tennis. I’m also lucky because IDEA headquarters provides a lot of great places to go on walks and hikes, so I do that during lunch or after work.
Tiffany: I imagine working at IDEA HQ is like fitness heaven!
What has been one of your biggest challenges in this last year?
Ahh good question! I’d have to say that one of my biggest challenges has definitely been learning to not take on more than I can handle. I’m always thinking of other fun projects I can start, but this year it’s started to become a little bit more overwhelming. I’ve had to really sit back and think about what’s truly important and put a few projects on the back burner so that I give myself time to de-stress.
Tiffany: You too?! I feel like I just confessed that in a post? Oh yeah, Simple Thoughts On Success.
I started my blog Happsters at the beginning of 2013 in an effort to spread a little bit of happiness and love to strangers. I’ve now transitioned to Instagram as my main medium for communicating my message and it’s been so fun to see this awesome happy community supporting each other and rooting each other on.
Tiffany: Uhm, yeah you have like 46,500 followers! I bet people regram you like crazy!
We know you’ve put a lot of work into making BlogFest happen.
What is YOUR favorite thing about BlogFest?
My favorite thing about BlogFest is the people! I love seeing old friends and am looking forward to making lots of new friends this year! Last year (the first year of BlogFest) I didn’t have a lot of time to chat with bloggers, but this year I am going to make a point of meeting every blogger and getting a selfie with them with my selfie stick!
Tiffany: You have a selfie stick?! How fun. Did you read that, all? Get selfies with Kelli!
Any advice for bloggers who want to make the most out of IDEA World?
My tip for IDEA World is to try lots of different types of classes you wouldn’t normally take part in. You may find something you love that you’ve never even thought of before! The great thing about IDEA World is that there are 375+ sessions going on throughout the weekend with everything from indoor cycling to barre to bootcamp.
Tiffany: Could not agree more. Trying a new workout/exercise is one of my top favorite things about IDEA World!
What are you most looking forward to in this next year?
Professionally, I’m looking forward to finding more creative ways that IDEA can work with health and fitness bloggers! Personally, I’m looking forward to getting married! I just got engaged in February to my boyfriend who also works at IDEA 🙂
Tiffany: WAAAAH! Congratulations! Let me know if you want to brainstorm on creative ways to work with bloggers! I have tons of IDEAS. 😉
