Whew – so its Friday. I’ve been home since Sunday and I am FINALLY feeling like I’ve caught up on life!
So for those of you who follow me on facebook know I spent an amazing 4 days in Las Vegas last week for Beachbody’s annual COACH SUMMIT. But, those of you who don’t may be thinking, what the heck is SuMmIt?!?
Here’s a little recap of how it all went down:
I’ve been a team beachbody coach for 4 months. And shortly after making the decision to be a coach I started seeing and hearing all this talk about Summit and how if you go to Summit it will change your business. Now, when I first signed up to coach, I just wanted the sweet discount on the Shakeology. However within days I started thinking about the business opportunity and after talking to my family and friends about how much my life has changed I started to get the feeling there was something more than just a sweet discount. I knew that if I wanted to take this to the next level I had to commit.
Through the help of my amazing mother in law, my plane ticket was booked (using miles – SCORE!). Through the help of my amazing coach I found a roomie for the week (DOUBLE SCORE! She’s freaking amazing!!!). And thanks to my hard work and dedication to helping others during my first 3 months as a coach I SCORED my own free ticket.
Watch out Vegas, here I come!
All my bags are packed I’m ready to go….
I was a little worried about how I was going to stay on track with my eating (without spending a small fortune on healthy foods while I was gone) but I actually surprised myself. I packed lots of snacks (Shakeology packets, Luna bars, oatmeal packaged into little baggies, and almonds) and I even asked a barista at Starbucks to blend my Shakeology – and she did – without a second thought!!!
The traveling was happily uneventful. And so was done 1. I arrived in Vegas, cabbed it to the airport and finally got to meet my amazing roomie, Alisha. Its a little scary knowing you’re about to spend 4 days with someone you’ve never met and really never talked to but I couldn’t have been more thankful! We had so much in common and no trouble gabbing about anything and everything. She made the trip that much more enjoyable!
We got checked in, grabbed a bite for dinner (which at this point its 6:00PM – 9:00 my time – talk about STARVING!) and headed out to see some sights. This was my second time to Vegas but I just had to see the water show at the Bellagio! I was actually sitting next to a guy on the plane who helped design the show (and many others similar to it around the world) so I had to see it one more time – and just as amazing!
Ok – so back to the trip!!!
We were up bright and early Thursday morning to get in line at the CORE for some hot new gear.
The launch of PiYO has been the talk of the event!!!!
The morning was spent at the Bombshell Dynasty’s SHINE presentation…talk about inspiration!!!! We listened to top coaches share their stories about how they got to where they are today. We heard from celebrity trainers, new product launches and had a chance to hear about personal experiences with how joining a challenge group and following a journey to clean eating healthy life has transformed people’s lives. It was REMARKABLE! At one point I just had to sit back and take a look. This company was built on a foundation of helping others. Helping others lead a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life! And I get to be a part of it!
After our general sessions wrapped up we were able to score the new PiYO workout program and then got all ready for the night!!!
Then the night closed down with the Sequins and Studs event. I loved being able to meet some new faces and spend some time with my incredible Beachbody family!
Friday morning kicked off with a FRONT row T25 workout with some of my girls and SHAUN T. He touched my back as he walked through the crowds, I was a bit starstruck!
We had another general session featuring key note speaker Darren Hardy, a few tips from the top notch coaches during the afternoon training workshops and a photo op with a few of my favorite trainers ❤
Saturday came faster than I could ever imagine – and kicked off with a bang! We got started with Super Saturday just before 6:00am. Being surrounded by 9000 coaches and all the trainers sent the endorphins sky high! I’ve been rocking 30 minute daily workouts and this hour plus was tough, not to mention the Vegas heat but so worth it! Awesome time!!!!
The last keynote speaker was Diana Nyad. Sure, I heard about her. She swam a really far distance and did something no one else had done. Congrats right?!?! No – it was so much more than that!!! I can’t even put it into words. All I can do is recommend you hear her story. Talk about supporting the theme of the week – NEVER GIVE UP!
The night came to a close with one last general session featuring the 2014 Beachbody Challenge contest winners. So many people overcome huge challenges in their lives to reach their health and fitness goals but these 8 semi-finalists had stories to top the lists!!!
I can’t even begin to count how many times I cried throughout these 4 days. I was filled with goosebumps on so many occasions and had a heart overflowing with thankfulness. Thankful to be where I am in my own journey, thankful to see the journey ahead and have the support of my coach, my family and my friends and thankful to be given the opportunity to help others do the same.
This Summit experience was far more than I could have ever imagined. I was motivated and inspired countless times and I really had the opportunity to see myself and my life in a new light. Watching and listening to the success stories all around me was incredible and I am so ready to take what I’ve learned and bring it back to my teammates and my coaches so they too can feel what I’m feeling and be motivated to reach their goals!
