Listen to Presenter Interviews

Including a special VIP opportunity to visit with and enjoy the company of the Health and Strength presenters at an exclusive Saturday evening dinner!

Dragon Door has assembled the most authoritative, results-producing roster of fitness authors of any company in the world. Whether it be kettlebells, sandbags, bodyweight exercise, powerlifting, nutrition or other resources for optimizing health and strength, we give you the complete package—and then some…

Our PCC calisthenics certification workshops and our RKC programs are widely acknowledged as the gold standard. Our authors’ titles routinely become fitness industry bestsellers and frequently become THE bible for their topic.

Last year we organized a conference bringing almost all of our world-class fitness experts together at the same time. You can imagine what it was like to hang out for two days and absorb the wisdom from the synergistic energy of these fitness powerhouses packed…

and here’s what participants had to say after the fact:

"I've attended many health and fitness related conferences, and this one may top them all! Every trainer and serious fitness/strength enthusiast should have been there. Can't wait for next year, and I plan to bring an entourage with me. Thanks so much for putting on this most outstanding event! Definitely a MUST attend!!!!!"—Larry Froley, California
"I didn't really know what to expect and I left a little stunned on how impressed I was. Dragon Door put together another excellent event and stays true to their mission of lending the world the best health and strength information from the world's top coaches and champions. The schedule was kept very tight and the presenters were professional and prepared. This gave me an opportunity to listen in and try out some of the strength techniques from the world's best. Marty Gallagher is a show-stopper with his straight to the point attitude on what it takes to be strong. His impact on the modern world of strength has been as influential as greats like Arnold Schwarzenagger, and Jack Lalane. It was great to hear the knowledge and techniques of other presenters as these tips will go a long way in my own training practices."—Robert Miller, Chicago

"I was very impressed with the presenters... Chris Hardy, Marty Gallagher and Rolando Garcia III blew me away with their content, perspective and presence... there was no one who disappointed but those three were exceptional. It's always nice to walk away with new perspectives and interesting takes on various things and I totally walked away with dozens of ‘ah-ha!’ moments. I'm very much looking forward to the next year's conference."—Chris Holder, San Luis Obispo
"I enjoyed the accessibility of all presenters. While I thought all presentations were worthwhile, I really enjoyed subjects tangential to training: Strong Medicine, Logan's visualization techniques. Jon Bruney's talk on Isometrics, sub-frequencies and c02. And, of course, Marty Gallagher The best writer in the business and excellent presenter. I signed up for the conference because of his involvement."—Steve Jerik
"As a new business owner, it's easy to get inundated with day-to-day tasks and forget why you opened your gym. I came to the conference looking for inspiration and I found it. The staff and speakers were passionate, confident and engaging. The variety of topics and viewpoints kept the conference inclusive and welcoming. This was the most informative and friendly conference I've attended. I would recommend it to anyone. See you next year!"—Crystal Williams, Minnesota
"Obviously, I hoped to gain knowledge about training & nutrition to become a better coach. What I didn't expect, but was happy to receive, were the new friendships and contacts I established with some of the best minds in the fitness industry."—Tina Wendell
"I really enjoyed the conference. The highlight for me was the total number (13) of speakers that presented. I was impressed by the overall professional quality and subject matter content that each presenter provided. Thanks again for such an amazing weekend."—Mary Langenfeld, Minnesota
"The speakers, while I had heard of them, I had no idea how powerful they would be in person."—Peggie Larsen, South Dakota
"I believe that all the presenters were freely sharing knowledge and enlarging our base. I think it was just bringing this level of instruction and attendees together. I truly think that being able to meet and network with all of the people present was incredible and well worth being there for."—Paul Britt, Dallas
"All I know is there was some incredible energy in that room those two days and I feel blessed to have experienced it! Wish I could articulate in words what a wonderful experience this was!!!! But I can give an analogy… When John ended the conference Sunday I had the feeling I used to get when I was a kid and went to see one of my favorite bands play. When the last encore was finished and the lights went on and I knew I saw an incredible, memorable performance I would be pumped from the show but at the same time sad that it was over! And I would immediately think of the next time the band would be in town, when the next tour was going to be!! How I could not wait to get into school the next day and talk about how awesome the concert was!!!!That how I felt. Like wow this was amazing! But oh no, it's over!! Can't wait till they announce next year s conference!!!!!! Can't wait to get back in the gym and start applying all this knowledge!!! Felt awesome to have that feeling running threw my body and mind!! Great job Dragon Door!!"—Michael Anderson, New York
"Great experience and great networking opportunity! Thank you for bringing such an incredible team together!!!"—Derek Spoden, Minnesota
"I expect the best of everything from Dragon Door and you all rocked it again!!!!!"—Tito Rogers, California
"I loved how engaged everyone was. I have attended numerous conferences and this one was by far one of my favorites. The presenters supported one another and were willing to debate without negativity. Many times those with the most knowledge hoard it; this group was willing to share and support!"—Chris Haukos, Minnesota

So…we are doing it again: organizing THE fitness conference of the year. A conference that should not only educate you in practical, cutting-edge strategies to optimize athletic performance and health—but inspire you to push forward, and make unprecedented gains in your overall athletic capabilities...

I am very proud to have co-originated the modern kettlebell movement in 2001—just think what impact kettlebells have had on global health and strength over the last 15 years!

I am exceptionally proud to have re-ignited a global interest in bodyweight exercise thanks to the Convict Conditioning series and the tireless work of the Kavadlo brothers. Again, the impact on global fitness has been dramatic…

"Is there a discounted room rate at the hotel?"

Yes! The Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot has set aside a block of rooms at the special rate of $145 per night. After you register, you’ll get an email with our group code and a link to reserve your room online, to get the discount as part of our room block.

Note: we highly recommend you make your reservations as soon as you receive our group code. Given the likely popularity of the Conference, we expect the rooms to be snapped up quickly. It will be very inconvenient indeed—and potentially more expensive—if you are forced to stay at a different hotel!

Want to share a room? The hotel allows up to four guests in a room. We will be setting up a private Facebook group for registrants which will allow you to network for hotel and travel information.

"Can I just wait for the video recordings?"

We may or may not be recording the event. We will be making that decision down the road…

But SO much of this Health and Strength Conference is bound up in the personal experience you will have—not just being up close and personal with the incredible posse of fitness authorities, but networking with all the other industry "movers and shakers" you can expect to be in attendance.

Will the event be sold out if you ignore this notice today and come back tomorrow? Probably not. But why risk it? Simply because you’re reading this far, you’re serious. Not only about the chance to attend this incredible event... But also doing what it takes—investing in YOURSELF as well as in many of the world’s greatest fitness authorities—to get those next big breakthroughs as a trainer or coach...

If You’re Serious, Register Now...
