My first experience at the Beachbody Summit 2016. I became a coach for Beachbody one year ago & it was the best decision I ever made!
Beachbody Summit 2016
This year the Team Beachbody Summit 2016 was hosted by Nashville, Tennessee!
This was my first time visiting Nashville. All I can say is wow. A beautiful place to see! (Especially if you are a music lover like myself!)
Nashville Tennessee is one of the cleanest cities I’ve ever been! It’s incredibly pedestrian friendly & there are all sorts of different types of transportation to help get one around. Two must see’s while in Nashville – Painter’s Alley & Broadway at night. BB King’s Cafe. Okay so maybe that’s three. You won’t want to miss out on these.
These gals were my “Summit Sisters.” We rode up from Atlanta & roomed together. We just “clicked” like seat belts.
I MUST thank my amazing husband for allowing us to “cash in” his hotel points. Not only did he graciously offer that, he also took time off from work to care for our 14-month-old son. Upon my return he had the dishes & laundry done. Sheets changed & the house was clean. I was so giddy to see him after being apart for four days but all of this! Just icing on the cake! The little things…. go so far.
Love this man….
Okay – where were we? Oh yeah, Summit 2016!
Team Beachbody is a Network of over 400,000 people who are all on a mission to serve others by trying to end the trend of obesity.
FACT: over 70% of Americans are overweight.
What it means to be a Team Beachbody Coach
We establish ourselves as our own business builders. We offer value & support to those who have challenging times with shifting over into healthier lifestyles. It’s not just about the weight loss, it’s about the spiritual & emotional growth that go along with it. After committing to your health & well-being, you begin to feel a great sense of accomplishment upon completing a fitness program. Along with that is an incredible amount of confidence. Who wouldn’t want that?
Since I’ve become a coach, I’ve learned more about myself than I have during my lifetime. Yes, I’m totally serious. The importance of living a healthy, fulfilling life is my number one priority. Before becoming a part of this amazing community, I felt lost as in where I was going. I was missing a “puzzle piece” so to speak. Team Beachbody resonates with me. It’s what makes me excited to wake up every day so that I can help provide for my family. It’s how I can work from home & be with my son through each milestone. Being able to serve others by offering this opportunity has completely fulfilled my soul.
This is one of my Teams. We are all connected online & have cultivated a tight bond. It’s great to finally see them in person instead of on the screen. Together we create support groups for our challengers to help them succeed in their health & fitness goals. We also provide motivation, tips, & healthy recipes to help keep everyone accountable as well pushing them to complete their fitness program. There’s nothing better than helping others achieve their health & fitness goals. Did I say that already?
What happens at Summit
We learn so much. For us, the festivities began on Thursday, July 28th as we drove in from a short 4-hour drive. We registered then attended a workout led by celebrity trainer Chalene Johnson. She led a PiYo class & it was outstanding. Chalene is one of the most uplifting humans I’ve ever known. She just makes you smile… and laugh.
After our workout with Chalene, we checked in to our hotel & got ready for dinner & opening ceremonies. Did I mention that there are 25k of us raiding the city streets of Nashville? The workshops were held at the Music City Center, the General Sessions were at the Nissan Arena & the Opening & Closing ceremonies were at the Nissan Stadium. It was a huge production.
At the Opening Ceremonies, Carl Diekler, CEO of Beachbody dropped a few announcements about products & tools we can utilize to help others get healthy. This is where it gets interesting. There are several ways to connect with your workouts. Beachbody offers in home fitness programs by way of DVDs. Now they offer On Demand. You can take your workouts with you anywhere. Either from your laptop, tablet OR phone.

There is nothing better than drinking Shakeology after my workouts. WHY?
- Builds & repairs muscles
- Supports healthy blood sugar levels
- Supports healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Provide the body with vitamins and minerals
- Supports a healthy immune system
- Helps fight free radical damage
- Supports healthy digestion
- Supports regularity
- Supports nutrient absorption
Shakeology is packed with globally sourced superfood ingredients
- Proteins and fiber – to help reduce hunger and food cravings.
- Antioxidants, Phytonutrients, Vitamins, and Minerals – to help fight free radical damage and help support a healthy immune system
- Adaptogen Herbs – traditionally used to help the body adapt and respond to the effects of stress
- Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Digestive Enzymes – to help nutrient absorption and support regularity and healthy digestion
I drink Shakeology because I love myself & I want to be healthy for as long as I can be. Since I’ve started drinking it, I haven’t been sick. I notice a big difference when I don’t have it & when I finally do, I feel energized & ready to take on my day. It’s incredible! It has seriously changed my life & my families life for the best!
Best for last
Saving the best for last, my coach, Jen Thatcher. I finally had the chance to meet her. I found her on Instagram a few months before my son was born, Feb. of 2015. I was scrolling through the #preggers posts & I saw a photo of her working out while pregnant! She looked to be around the same term I was in & I was truly inspired by that! I reached out to her & I joined her challenge group for pregnant moms! She gave birth to her son 3 months after I had mine. We have a lot in common & our personalities get along well together. I signed up as a coach in July 2015. She is consistent, hard working & she shows up. I couldn’t ask for a better coach.
That about wraps up my Summit experience. I’m in love with this community & what it stands for. I honor this company & realize how much our country needs us! People need us to motivate them in making better food & lifestyle choices. We’ve become industrialized… Thousands of years ago, we had to fend for our food & were constantly preparing & active to provide for our families. “Now we have TV & Doritos.” – CD We sit behind a desk all day staring at our computer screens without moving around much. SO our job is to inspire everyone to get up. I plan to post all over my social media platforms the importance to living healthy. Even if it’s a little bit…
I have Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that has to do with my thyroid. No one really knows how we get autoimmunities, (there are @ 70 today) but one thing I do know, in my heart of hearts it has to do with my previous lifestyle, stress & unhealthy food & drink consumption. This is becoming a common trait in my generation & generations after.. There are mental illnesses that are more prevalent now than they were before, with anxiety & depression. If we stand up together to get our blood flowing for JUST 30 minutes a day, these symptoms would pause at bay. I bet my life on that. That has become my mission, my passion & my burning desire, to serve others become healthier. How this came to fruition is a for a future post & I look forward to sharing it here with you!
Thanks so much for reading & please feel free to contact me about joining my challenge groups or just talking about your current lifestyle. I know there is a way I can help shed some light. Sometimes talking to a total outsider can point you into a new perspective that can help out leaps & bounds.
