Yesterday, I went to my FOURTH Super Sunday as a Beachbody coach. It was so incredible - they just keep getting better!
It started out with several coaches presenting what being a Beachbody coach is all about (most of us there were coaches and already knew, but we also brought guests who were interested in hearing more about it), and telling their personal stories about how Beachbody changed their lives.
Here is my coach, Katie, telling her story:
And here’s another teammate, Adam, telling his. At the beginning, they asked everyone to stand if they had lost five pounds or more from Beachbody. (I got to stand!) Then they asked for ten pounds (I had to sit, but my success partner, Kristin stayed standing)…. Then fifteen, then twenty… As more and more people stayed standing, the applause grew and grew, and I have to admit - I got a little teary-eyed! Adam was the last person standing, after losing 110 pounds and counting! Here he is, telling his story about how he decided to make a lifestyle change in order to be a better father for his children.
Next, we gave the guests the chance to try Shakeology. Several people donated Shakeology, lent out their blenders, and donated different ingredients to go along with the Shakeology. Here’s the other volunteers and I in the “Shakeology room.” I’m the one who looks like a Barbie, next to the Superwoman mom who was preparing Shakeology with a baby strapped to her like it was nothing! Moms never cease to amaze me!
After the Shakeology break, we all reconvened in the auditorium to watch the video from corporate with all of the announcements of new products and other news from the company…
Here are a couple highlights -
There’s a new flavor of Shakeology - Chocolate Vegan! If you click on the title, you can see a humorous video explaining its benefits… I had the chance to taste it, and I loved it! I still preferred the original Shakeology (it’s chocolatey-er, if that’s a real word), but this had a light taste, and is now my 2nd favorite flavor!
Body Beast is here! It’s a new program designed to build muscle mass, and it also has supplements to encourage muscle growth! Let me tell you, the trainer for it, Sagi, is a BEAST!
There is a new product that I can’t wait to try - the new Beachbody Skincare Line, Derm Exclusive! I will be posting a video soon about skin and skincare… If this stuff works as well as it does in the video, I will be buying another one right away, to use in my makeup kit!
Next, Craig Holliday spoke. Oh. My. Goodness. He is an AMAZING speaker! Here he is, talking about how to take charge of your dreams!
Since that picture doesn’t do justice, here’s a link to part one of his talk on YouTube. Grab tissues first. You might cry. Look at the channel for parts two and three!
I am SO excited, because he is coming back to Chicago on August 18th for training for Beachbody coaches, and I can’t wait to hear him talk again!
We finished up Super Saturday by taking a picture of all of the coaches in attendance on the stage with Craig Holliday. I am so glad my hair is bright blonde, since I can see myself in this picture because of it! Right in the middle!
The girl I am standing over is two years older than me and walked across the stage at Summit this year because she has earned ONE MILLION DOLLARS through Beachbody - so cool getting paid to help people!
After this, my coach bought a couple rounds of drinks for her team members at a local bar/restaurant. Here we are!
It was an amazing experience, because I got to meet my coach as well as some of my teammates who I’ve been talking on the phone with weekly and communicating with on facebook nearly daily for the first time! It was nuts how not awkward it was… We all recognized each other, and gave each other hugs because we had already been friends a while!
Overall, GREAT day. It is so incredible to be around so many positive people, with one goal in mind - to end the trend of obesity!
