Dallas, Texas

April 7, 2018

Redefined Dallas is a one-day event that supports networking among faith and fitness minded professionals, leaders and individuals in the BIG-D. Following in the successful model of Faith & Fitness Magazine’s Redefined Conference that is held nationally at the Athletic Business Show, this local event brings practical support directly to a wide range of vocationally connected individuals in your city.

We’ll bring together gym owners/managers/directors, personal trainers, group exercise instructors, nutritionists, fitness personalities, health care providers, wellness consultants, career coaches, educators, counselors, addiction recovery providers, pastors/church leaders/staff, business owners, community and organizational leaders and others all for the purpose of dialoguing on the connections between faith and fitness, building a local Dallas/Fort Worth area-wide network and growing opportunities for collaboration and collective influence. This will strengthen each business, ministry organization and individual and expand opportunities for greater Christian ministry in the citywide area.
