I’m not sure that my smile could get any bigger but I’m also not sure I could feel any more proud than I do of my team that pulled together to achieve ELITE status in 2015.
They call me their leader – they are my tribe.
You see last week was our annual Beachbody Coach Summit – aka – our annual get together! And if you follow me on social media you may have noticed the picture overload!! What can I say…I was having a BLAST!
This is where we celebrate the launch of the newest program (COUNTRY HEAT this year!!!) learn what programs are launching soon (Core De Force – November, Yoga Retreat-September) and share in the upcoming release of things like the 20s show (reality show on Beachbody On Demand designed to find the next celebrity trainer) and the Health Bet (contest running September – October with a pot of $1 million to split amongst participants). This is also where we celebrate the accomplishments of the year before!!!
This is so important to me because while I have some local coaches – my TEAM spreads the US and Canada. Coast to coast! And our relationships and our businesses are built through video conferences and voice messages but not this time.
This was our time to share, learn and GROW through our friendships and our team – TOGETHER in person.
I arrived a few days early to allow myself time to get adjusted and settled and to celebrate ELITE NIGHT!
If you already follow me on social media you know this was a pretty big deal for me and my team!! Elite is a title earned by the few. You not only have to work hard to build and grow your business but you have to teach your TEAM how to do it too…that can be the tough part to conquer.
This is the night we get spoiled a bit…enjoy an exclusive shopping experience for the new swag and of course get dressed up, enjoy dinner & cocktails and simply celebrate with all the Elite coaches and the celebrity trainers.
I was fortunate to also get a date ticket and bring along one of my top coaches!
Thursday night kicks off the actual SUMMIT with our opening ceremonies. I was honored to walk the stage for both my 5 Star Diamond rank achievement (for having at least 5 personally sponsored diamond coaches) and SC 10 LEGEND (for helping at least 5 people get started in their health and fitness journey for 24+ consecutive months in the business.
Call me a sucker but I soaked up every minute of walking on that stage!!!
We also learned about all the new STUFF coming soon! Stay tuned – I’ll share all those details in another post!!!
Friday morning started with a 6:00am LIVE workout by Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews. I was hoping to preview the new program coming this fall – CORE de FORCE – but that’s not possible – YET – so instead they whooped our butts with their own MASHUP!
And no – they didn’t disappoint!!!
But Friday is when the celebrations are put on pause and we become students. Beachbody does an incredible job putting together training sessions complete with some of the best leaders in the company, celebrity trainers, and of course Keynote speakers to tie it all together.
This year featured Gary V and well, let’s just say he lit the fire no doubt!!! You can listen in on part of his presentation below!
Now it wasn’t all work and no play!
I also qualified for a VIP pre-party for the Billy Joel concert on Friday night and let’s just say we didn’t take the 80s theme – lightly!
The Saturday morning Super workout is one of the things we are most known for.
Each of the Super Trainers – Autumn Calabrese, Tony Horton, Shaun T, Joel Freeman & Jericho McMatthews, Sagi Kalev and Chalene Johnson give their best 15 minute sweat session and an hour and half later you’re spent, happy, and rejuvenated. Don’t believe me??? TRY IT!!!
This year we were able to get the entire street of BROADWAY shut down in Nashville and we filled it with 25,000 coaches – all working together – to SWEAT for something bigger.
Saturday wrapped things up with another General session, more group learning sessions and the close out celebration.
I walked the stage for the 3rd and final time and yes…the photographers caught me taking a selfie!
It ended with our LARGER group team photo. We are part of the Dream team which celebrated the #1 spot for the second year in a row. I have to say its an absolute honor to not only have my own incredible team but to also be part of this organization.
The number of lives – WE – as a team – have impacted is surreal and I cannot wait to see what the rest of 2016 brings!!!
And while this sums up the highlight real what you cannot quantify and truly share are the moments shared by our team, the strategies discussed, the stories heard and the plans for the future!!!
Next year’s summit will be in New Orleans and I am making it my goal to bring at least 50 people from my team with me.
Who’s with me?
