Handicapping FILEX 2014

Every year the line up at FILEX gets exponentially better and I know from talking to some of the other presenters that FILEX now rivals any other fitness convention worldwide.  And I feel safe in agreeing with this after speaking and attending some of the biggest fitness conventions in the world like IDEA World, CanFitPro, and the Perform Better Summits.

 

With so many amazing workshops and presenters it’s hard to figure out who to go see in each time slot.  So I’m going to give you a breakdown of who I’m going to see, as well as some of the other best options in each time slot.  Now this is just my opinion, so I would love to hear who you’re going to see too! (sidenote: I got this idea from Michael Boyle who handicaps the Perform Better Summit each year)
