And so many more MOMENTS…came together to make up a recent 5-day trip I took to Orlando. It was a trip for me to be with my coach – the one that shared her life so graciously on social media and allowed ME to discover THIS life changing opportunity – and a trip for me to be with my leaders as well – to thank them and spoil them and teach them so that one day they are doing the same for their teams!

It was a TEAM retreat for the record books no doubt…but WHY?

Why are these things SO KEY and such a HUGE driver for me to host and my team to attend?

As coaches we have the opportunity to build an EMPIRE without ever leaving home.

A DREAM come true to this former, stay at home mom who needed to find herself after babies!

And whether you have little ones and a desire to be home with them or simply a desire to travel more or work on your own terms or simply live beyond the nontraditional 9-5 this business has the ability to be a BLESSING beyond words.

Sometimes building a business behind a computer screen can be a little lonley and you the peer to peer interaction is what you need to jazz it up.

We have larger events like Summit and the Success Club trips that allow us to come together and quarterly Super Saturdays to see  local area coaches but the annual team RETREAT allows a time to be together as ONE TEAM UNITED and I truly cannot put into words the IMPACT this even has on my business.

I remember watching my coach go on her team retreat before I started thinking REALLY – that many girls in one place who are VOLUNTARILY spending the weekend together?!?!

I didn’t get…until I became a part of it. The unity. The community. THE FAMILY.

It never is about comparison and there are no secrets.  We are simply EMPOWERING one another to be the best mom/wife/friend/sister and coach all rolled into one. We share tips and ideas, life events and stories and motivation one another on all aspects of the business and just plain old LIFE!

I have learned that when you pour into yourself for a little bit you then have the ability to POUR MORE into others and this trip while seemed like it came at the most crazy time in my life – I now realize it came at the time I – WE – needed it most.

I don’t know many jobs – careers – that are built upon a CULTURE that encourages other women to empower other women and provides an environment for you to SIMPLY BE YOU and your income is a direct result of the IMPACT you make but my goodness I sure am glad I found it!

But this I ensure you –

Behind the stock pile of selfies, and group photo shots, and pretty meals, and smiles and laughs…is WORK.
We work HARD because our work matters.

We work HARD because we KNOW we have something SPECIAL.

We work HARD because every time we SHARE what we do we have the opportunity to pay it forward and help others the same way this business has blessed us.

I got started as a coach because I NEEDED it emotionally AND physically and I knew there HAD to be other women suffering the way I was and I held that power in my hand to help them. And here I stand today not just doing that – but helping OTHER build their empires too.

Isn’t that the TRUTH!

The first step is always the hardest.

Whether you’re starting a fitness journey, changing your nutrition or BOTH – simply getting those first few days in…is HARD!

But one thing I learned is we all have that “tipping point” – that point where your desire to change outweighs your desire to stay the same and it is THEN that the excuses get pushed aside and you GO FOR IT.

And this is what my GOAL is for YOU with Clean Week! To just GO FOR IT – try this out and see if YOU will benefit from the combination of

FITNESS + NUTRITION + SUPPORT to get you RESULTS!

Is there a MODIFER? 

While most other home workout programs include a modifier, someone you can follow along with if you’re struggling and need to slow down, Clean Week includes an intensifier. If you feel like a certain move is too easy for you, you can follow the intensifier for a more challenging workout.

How does the Clean Week Meal Plan/Nutrition Plan work? 

The program meal planner that comes with Clean Week breaks down everything you need to know to start eating healthier. Since everyone is different, your nutrition plan during the program will be customized to fit your specific needs. You’ll learn how to plan and prep your meals for the entire week so you’re ready to go! There will be a variety of recipe suggestions that use ingredients anyone can easily find in their local grocery store.

Blueberry shakeology
Why Shakeology? 

You’ll also get to try Shakeology, our complete nutrition shake, with a 7-day sampler pack.  Shakeology has been what helps me get the nutrition that I need in a delicious way!

The regular Shakeology sampler comes with 2 packets of chocolate, 2 packets of vanilla, 2 packets of cafe latte, and 1 packet of strawberry.

There is also a vegan Shakeology sampler available.

You can learn more about Shakeology here.

How does the SUPPORT work?

This is the missing link to so many other fitness/nutrition options out there!! Its one thing to get the nutrition in check, its another to start moving, but when you know OTHER people are counting on you – the SUPPORT will carry you through the ups and downs and good days and bad to help make HABITS!!!

In my closed online support group, you will get my daily motivation, tips and everything you need to make sure you FINISH what you START!!!

Taking the stage

super-friday-2017-stage

Taking the stage for the second year in a row as a 2x Elite Leader – and more importantly FULFILLED – accomplished – MOM & WIFE

What does it all mean?

Let me debrief for you as I, myself, continue to wrap my head around this last week of excitement…

Last Thursday I received the official call from Beachbody Corporate – congratulating my INCREDIBLE – driven – dedicated – lead-with-their-heart TEAM on achieving ELITE for 2016.

I know to some its just a word – but to me – it means that the process I have created for helping other men & women get started on their health & fitness journey’s is being duplicated – and duplicated again and again as the leaders who make up this team pour their heart into serving others.

This was a goal I set for my team this year and it was amazing to be ONE of the 210 teams in the ENTIRE network (of over 400K+ coaches) who reached this benchmark!!!

We have many women who are continuously giving their time to serve others but these are the KEY LEADERS who made achieving this – ELITE – status come full circle for my One. Fit. Fam.

I feel its important to share that this achievement means that I am not just creating and building my own business – but I am creating a business that others want to be a part of – that others want to build too – so that they can achieve their personal & professional business goals and continue working towards a common goal.

I’ve always said: TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER and these are the moments where this holds true more than ever.

But that was just the start of the weekend…

The workout clothes were traded in for a cocktail dress and sparkly shoes as we set forth to kick off the January 2017 Super Friday event!!!

I am part of the Pittsburgh Market Council that plans our local events and this one was a big one.

Not only did we have an incredible venue booked with my own team’s success to celebrate but we had our CEO, Carl Daikeler coming to town to celebrate the 3x top coach accomplishment for Melanie Mitro and the #2 Master Trainer Kam Niskach.

It takes an army to put on these events and its truly an honor to be able to work with this team to make it happen!!!

Some of our “local” team members who traveled in for the event

But they had their own little surprise up their sleeves for this one…

To celebrate the ELITE accomplishment of all the local coaches, a compilation of the congratulatory calls was put together and shared during our Super Friday event.

Needless to say I was brought to tears!

So much of what I do as a coach stems from my desire to be at home wtih my kids and also still contributing financially to my family while living out my passion and living my life WITH PURPOSE.

This career as a coach has allowed me so many experiences & opportunities and has taught me invaluable life lessons…and it was fitting to have my kids on my lap when I received that phone call!

Our night closed out with my team, in our PJs, in my hotel room as we chatted the night away, shared stories and prepared for day #2!

Dream Team purpose event.jpg

STRONG WOMEN LIFT EACH OTHER UP

I was blessed to be amongst this incredible group of leaders with a slot to share some of my tips and tricks for taking ACTION towards your goals!

We met early in the morning – we did our run through – and we simply SUPPORT each other.

super-friday-2017-speaker-photo

Some of these women are my mentors – some are those I simply admire and all of them are women i am INSPIRED by on a daily basis.

super-friday-2017-stage

When it was time to take the stage I was nervous, slightly emotional from simply being MOVED by the story I just heard but excited to shake it and go for it!

It was time to share some of MY STORY.

I got to share how I started my business using little pockets of my day…how I started MAKING time to build my business and SACRIFICED things to make it happen!

My kids were little
I was still adjusting to the stay-at-home-#momlife of two
And just like that I decided to add COACH to my title…and I went all in and never looked back!!

I had no idea then…where I would be now.

But I trusted the process.
Had faith in my mentors.
And confidence that if I kept doing all the small things daily the compound effect prove its worth.

If you would have told me taking the stage would come with this territory I would have ran the other way!

But today I stand proud that I have learned to take chances!

With every opportunity I learn and stretch outside those comfort zones and in turn GROW!!!

Here’s to 2017—continued growth-fearlessness-and opportunities!!!

***THERE’S POWER IN NUMBERS***

Beachbody Coaching – its more than a job – its a PASSION

Weekend Getaway. Road Trip. Friends. Boating. Learning. Inspiring. Photo Shoot. Working Out. Laughter. Memories. 

And yes, I could go on and on and on!

I spent last weekend on a Diamond Retreat in the PocoFitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip, nos with some fellow Diamond coaches. While arguably this was a “work trip” it truly felt just like a girls getaway with a few of my closest friends. The crazy part – this was the first time some of us had EVER met.

Yet our social media businesses allow us to feel like sisters. And as I sit here today reflecting on the last year I will say I am beyond blessed that my newly developed PASSION for health and fitness and paying it forward has given me such incredible opportunities but this didn’t happen overnight!

Rewind a few years ago and I had NO IDEA what a Beachbody Coach was. Sure – I had heard of the P90X and Insanity home DVD workout programs but I didn’t know there was a network out there to help others reach their health & fitness goals.

When I found myself post part with Baby #2 I realized it was time for a change. I wanted to be healthy for me & my family. I wanted to have the energy to keep up with my kiddos and I wanted to be leading a healthy lifestyle by example!

Fitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip,  mentorship, coach, fit friends

When I was FINALLY ready to COMMIT I joined a challenge group with my coach, completed the 21-day fix, got results and NEVER LOOKED BACK! I often think about where I’d be today if I hadn’t reached out to her. If I hadn’t asked for help. If I didn’t realize I could be a better person?!?!?! Regardless…I am grateful!!!

While my initial reason for signing up as a coach was for the discount on the products, that I Fitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip, mom bosses girl bosses, Regan Longalready loved, I was quickly seeing the potential in this AS A TRUE BUSINESS! The potential to pay it forward. The potential to help my closest friends and family become the best versions of themselves. The potential to create a full fledge BUSINESS while still being home with my family…and here I am today – 16 months later celebrating the successes of my team!

Our first night ice breaker allowed us to all learn about one another while enjoying some home cooked lasagna dinner…yes Beachbody coaches splurge too and a few of the treats my mini me and I whipped together before heading east.

This weekend was full of inspiration! Learning about how different our backgrounds are yet how we have all taken our own spin on our businesses to make it our own – to be ourselves – to grow a team – and to inspire others that they can do this too!

Fitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip, breakfast of champions

Our Saturday morning included an outdoor photo shoot complete with team and individual photos as well as indoor professional shots. Watching each of the coaches take their turn and show a little something about themselves was such a cool experience!!!

Fitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip,
And as the photo shoot wrapped up we changed pace and headed out to the Lake for a day of Boating! This was pure FUN in the SUN. Tubing and singing and again – just learning about one another and having the chance to bond face to face (opposed to our usual VOXER messages and Zoom calls) was so valuable!!

Fitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip,

As our boating ended we headed back to our house, for a low key night complete with a champagne toast and one last chance to celebrate our team and our successes as we spent the night giggling away!

Fitness group photo shoot idea, Fitness inspiration, Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Poconos golf course, Weekend getaway, Girls weekend trip,  It starts with one

From the decision MY UPLINE COACH made to take the leap – to the decision I MADE to pay it forward – to the decision of MY PERSONALLY SPONSORED COACHES to also continue to grow, lead and inspire others puts a true meaning behind Compound Effect!
