To Speak at First Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference

Washington, D.C. – Zephyr Adventures announced today that Shellie Pfohl, executive director of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition will deliver a keynote speech on June 24 at the first Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference. Ms. Pfohl is the nation’s top fitness official and was appointed by President Barack Obama to lead the President’s Council in February, 2010. The conference will be held June 24-26, 2011 in Boulder, Colorado.

Blogging has become a popular medium that allows citizens to post their thoughts on any topic of their choosing and fitness and health blogs now number in the thousands. Up to 130 bloggers are expected to attend the Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference to meet each other and learn how to improve their trade.

The June conference will include a variety of speakers discussing subjects such as how to incorporate videos into a blog, how to make the most of Facebook and Twitter, and how to “use almost anything to inspire your next blog post”. Attendees are generally “citizen bloggers” who blog for no pay in their spare time.

“I am super excited to attend this conference and take away a few hints on how to do what I do better”, said attendee Jacqueline Carly from the blog Fitarella. “I am especially eager to hear what Ms. Pfohl has to say about the role of bloggers in spreading the gospel of living a healthy lifestyle.”

Conference organizer Allan Wright says he picked Boulder, Colorado because of its healthy lifestyle and many available fitness activities. Conference participants will be able to take part in yoga classes, guided hikes and bicycle rides, martial arts exercise classes, and more all courtesy of local businesses.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming bloggers from throughout the country to Boulder”, says Wright. “This will be the place to be for citizens who blog about healthy lifestyles.”

The President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN) promotes programs and initiatives that educate, engage and empower Americans of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to live a healthy lifestyle.
