Thailand, Part 2: Asia Fitness Conference… In Letters

I’ve always heard great things about the Asia Fitness Conference and getting to attend and speak at this year’s conference in Bangkok was amazing! I decided to write this post in letters to those who helped make this event as great as it was!

Dear Suzanne Hosley – You put on a wicked conference! Thank you so much for inviting me to teach TRX Dance Body and for asking for lots of dance sessions. It was so incredibly fun to rock it out with the attendees and getting to mix my dance world with my fitness world. Had the time of my life and it started with you!

Dear Hip Hop Dance Party Participants,  Thank you for your attention, energy, and rockin’ out the booty, booty, bootybootybooty moves! HOT. You guys were so much fun and KILLED it. If anybody has that video or group photo, please send them my way! I didn’t get them on my phone!

Dear TRX Dance Body Participants, You guys were fun and made me laugh with all your groaning in agony over those long sets. Even though some of you had no ballet background,  you still rocked it out. You were great!

Dear Beyonce Participants, Thank you for your insanely smokin’ dance moves! I hope you all go rock out the dance the next time you’re anywhere they’re playing Crazy In Love. I love all the videos you guys took. I’ve been replaying them all so I could catch a little bit of everybody’s performances. I’m aiming for a Beyonce 2.0 next year… stay tuned!

Dear Dr. Emily Splichal and Sgt. Ken, Thank you so much for joining me and helping me bring my barefoot dance for athletes content to fruition. It was crazy that we were able to put that together while living in three different time zones and all constantly traveling and busy! It was an honor to present with both of you and I hope we get to work together more in the future!

Dear ALL the participants, Thank you for your time, your energy, your enthusiasm, and your appreciation. I am so grateful to have had such a great audience that was as excited about the sessions as I was. You made me feel completely welcome and appreciated. And thanks for wanting to take your photo with me… I felt like a rock star the whole weekend. ; )

Dear International TRX Family, It was so awesome to see you and connect with you here. Thanks for introducing me to your friends and colleagues (and for translating back and forth)! I can’t wait until we get to hang out again and for longer. xoxo

Dear Judy, It’s a good thing you were wearing your daughter because I almost took her and brought her home with me… #possiblecustomsproblem She’s beautiful and your man-friend is super sweet too. ; )

Dear San Diego Mafia (and 1 Canuck), I love learning from my colleagues but I love laughing with them more. I don’t know if I’ve laughed so hard in one conference weekend as I did in this one. You guys were a blast. I’m so glad I have “the flag situation” on video to watch any time I want. #stillcrying

Dear The Continent Hotel, Thank you for having an 8 hour long Happy Hour with large, inexpensive, BOGO cocktails. On our off-day AC and I enjoyed our 4 mojitos immensely!

And last, but never least…

Dear Man-Friend, Watching you present your sessions has always been my jam. I love the way you speak and connect with the participants. I love watching people light up when they’ve had an “ah-ha” career moment because of you. I especially loved being a part of the same presenter page in the conference catalog with you… and more importantly: being listed first. ; )

I appreciate (more than you know) your technical help with my computer, you grabbing enough dessert for both of us, and most importantly, your unending encouragement and support. Thank you for all of it.
