Beachbody Summit Highlights
What’s So Great About Beachbody Summit?
The Annual Beachbody Summit is here! It’s my absolute favorite time of the year as all of my favorite things collide into one huge ball of awesomeness with glitter on top! My favorite things about Beachbody Summit—uhh..thousands of positive, goal driven, dream chasing people in one room–the MGM Grand Garden Arena to be exact (they hold the Billboard Music Awards on the same stage!), our Dare 2 Dream team (we work together all year long on Facebook and now we are LIVE and in person!), all of the Beachbody trainers I adore (cough cough Shaun T), training from top industry leaders (this year we have Success Magazine Founder Darren Hardy!), nightly parties where I get to dress up (no workout capris allowed!), and a HUGE Beachbody Summit Super Workout on the Las Vegas Strip! It’s always a weekend to remember! This year’s Beachbody Summit was even MORE special! Is that even possible?!?
What if You Get What You Expect?
First, I want to tell you a little bit about my former self. Unbeknownst to me, I had completely created a self sabotaging life. I had the grand idea at a very young age to expect the worst in any situation. I thought, that way, if the worst happens, I’m not disappointed. And if something great happens, well, then that’s a bonus! I figured this was a great way to protect myself from getting hurt or having to deal with disappointment. Sounded perfectly logical, which would set my mind at ease. BUT, I was missing a huge part of the equation. WHAT IF I GOT..WHAT I EXPECTED IN LIFE? I realize now that I was setting myself up for failure. I was entrapping myself into a small box, free of disappointment, sure…but also free of LIFE! I was always expecting and looking for the worst possible thing to happen. A few years ago, when I became a Beachbody coach, I started reading books that would help me change this life shattering mindset. NOW, I believe in the impossible! NOW, I dream big! NOW, I expect and KNOW that great things are happening! And guess what, THEY ARE!
What a Ride It’s Been
I’m flying home from the Beachbody Summit, just AMAZED, THANKFUL, OVERWHELMED, IN SHOCK, and just PUMPED that somehow God led me to this moment in my life. This past weekend was INSANE. So many of my dreams, goals and hearts desires were fulfilled ALL AT ONCE! It was a whirlwind of emotion. Here’s just a brief recap (and really for myself so I don’t forget as I was off in lala land somewhere):
-Kicked things off with an Elite Reception with the Beachbody trainers and amazing seats at Cirque du Soleil’s “O”.
-Had a team meeting with Eric Worre, Carl Daikeler and Tony Horton where I had the pleasure of meeting over 100 Dare 2 Dream coaches. These aren’t just regular people. These are positive, motivated, dream chasers that aren’t settling for an ordinary life but are striving for the EXTRAORDINARY. It was so humbling to know it all started with a decision I made to create a fun job that I loved that allowed me to get paid to help others. And we are JUST GETTING STARTED!
-Heard amazing announcements about upcoming products like the brand new PiYo (no weights involved), a new P90 (a base program to prepare you for P90X) coming in the fall, the new Shakeology Refresh (a 3 day jumpstart to getting your body back on track) and MORE TO COME!
-Attended multiple live workouts including Insanity, Focus T25, P90X3 and PiYo and even got called on stage halfway thru the Insanity workout by Shaun T himself. And my husband walked in a fashion show! (I’m not kidding…I couldn’t make this stuff up! Ha!)
-Was recognized on the MGM Grand Garden Arena stage (same place Justin Timberlake has performed) for being an Elite Coach (around 100 in the entire company out of over 150,000), a Star Diamond Coach AND we got to SHRED OUR MORTGAGE on stage that we paid off a few months ago and return home with a beautiful, silver piggy bank.
-Attended multiple, flashy Vegas parties where I had VIP all the way. One was at the top club in Vegas Hakkasan and the other was poolside with an incredible fireworks show to close the night.
-And it all culminated in the craziest moment ever when I got to workout ON STAGE with Shaun T at the Super Workout with 9000+ people giving it their ALL on the Vegas Strip! I CAN’T EVEN DESCRIBE IT!
I say all of this to encourage you to do one thing: LIVE! I spent too many years playing it safe. I want you to DARE 2 DREAM! Don’t just dream though. FIGHT FOR IT. Claw, scrape and fight your way to what you want out of life! Because guess what, IT’S POSSIBLE! You CAN do it! Surround yourself with the right people. Get a clear mission and GO! Don’t let ANYTHING and I mean ANYthing stop you. And if you’ve ever considered joining me on this wild ride, msg me. It’s my JOB to share what I do. It has changed my life in so many ways, I HAVE to!
