Food, Faith & Fitness: The Digital Holy Trinity LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Join us as we examine the exploding field of fitness and food blogging as well as its intersection with identifying as a blogger of faith. We will explore how social media is disrupting the traditional business models of personal training and nutrition planning, and enabling everyday people to become sources of information on health and nutrition.

Additionally, we will understand how social media has created a border-free “church” where folks on a fitness journey can fellowship, encourage, and inspire one another, and provide tips for content creators interested in excelling in this quickly growing field. Lastly, we will highlight why the particular intersection of food, fitness and faith is resonating with so many people around the world, and guide the audience in starting their own fitness journey.
