The Power Athlete Symposium is an annual weekend clinic for coaches, athletes, and enthusiasts. Inaugurated in December of 2014 at our former Headquarters in Costa Mesa, the goal is to empower our attendees and followers from around the world through exposure to life changing material from world class members of the fields of Strength and Conditioning, Health and Wellness, Lifestyle, and Business.

This year we are hosting The Symposium in Austin, Texas, the new home of Power Athlete. The event is open to the public and will benefit Wade's Army!

QUESTIONS / ANSWERS

Q: What airport should we fly into?
Austin Bergstrom will be the closest airport (AUS). You could do Houston (HOU) if you find a bargain, but it is at least a 3 hour drive to the Austin area.

Q: Will there be parking at the event center?
Oh yeah.

Q: If I fly out Sunday, will I miss anything good?
Oh yeah. The event is scheduled to end around 6:30pm. If you are flying out of HOU, plan a 9:30pm or later flight if you want to experience all of Sunday. If you are flying out of AUS, book an 8:30pm or later flight.
