In September, I had three great presentations at the BCRPA Fitness Conference.
Fitness education is a hot topic in health and wellness, with many looking for the best ways to achieve a healthier lifestyle. The fitness world is very competitive, and there is a lot of misinformation about how people lose weight and get in shape. It can be seen as a significant challenge to be able to lose weight and get fit, but also it can turn out to be a lot of pressure to be able to keep up with the latest trends and techniques.
The feedback was amazing.
BCRPA Fitness Conference Presentation on Shoulder Injuries and Exercises:
CLICK HERE for the presentation on Shoulder Pain
Shoulder injuries are one of the most common causes of loss of mobility and strength in the body. They can affect almost anyone, from active individuals to older people who spend hours every day in front of a computer screen. While it is not easy to acquire all the information about shoulder injuries, you can learn more about this topic by reading this article. We will discuss exercises for shoulder injuries, injuries themselves, and the recommendations for recovery.
After the BCRPA fitness presentation, I was off to the USA to present. The second time I have presented in the USA.
Presenting in Las Vegas (So cool!)
Last weekend, I was in Las Vegas. I gave the best non-fitness education presentation of my life.
I shared my story of how I started blogging on the internet and how I have started helping people around the world with my books on overcoming injuries.
The feedback for my presentation in Las Vegas was insane.
I had all kinds of posts on my Facebook Page.
I don’t look for these kind words, but I put a lot of time, work, energy, visualization, and thought into my presentations. Some would say a crazy amount of work.
It makes me so happy people enjoyed it, were entertained, and learned a few things.
The nice thing is when it is not a rehab or science presentation, I can let the full Rick out, which is fun.
After the high of the weekend, I got this:
A conference rejection letter.
When you get these, they string.
You think after ten years of presenting, doing over 250 fitness education presentations to well over 5000 fitness professionals, you would have done your road work to get into most conferences, but I guess this is not enough for some.
When you get this high and then this low, you start asking yourself:
Do I Do a Good Job Presenting? (What do you think?)
or do I believe this:
I am a Fitness Presenter Reject?
Oh ya, that was the second reject letter I got from NSCA this week. Yes, two rejection letters from NSCA, ugh.
What do you think?
Am I an good presenter or a presentation reject?
Let me know in the comment area.

P.S. – If you want to see me present, you can check out my fitness education presentations, or if you do not, you can go to the NSCA conference.
