Turn your body into a fat burning furnace with cardiovascular conditioning, resistance training and athletic drills. Improve agility, balance, core strength and flexibility while your body is power training and burning fat. All fitness levels welcome and modifications will be provided by the instructor.

The Terence Donnelly Memorial Health & Wellness Event (aka TDawg) is in honor of Terence Donnelly, who unexpectedly passed away in July 2019, this event is designed to bring the IAEE community together to celebrate both our host city and Terence. Terence had a passion for the industry and loved being part of the IAEE community. He enjoyed learning, mentoring and helping others succeed, and we can’t think of a better way to honor his memory.  All wellness challenge registration funds will be donated to support the CEIR Foundation to help others not only in their quest to be healthy, but to learn and educate themselves about the exhibitions industry.
