How did you WIN a free trip?
Let's clear the air here... I didn't win anything, this free trip was something I earned. This past weekend, my husband and I along with 4,000 other coaches returned from a trip to the Hard Rock Resort in Punta Cana as a result of helping people reach their physical and financial goals (I will get into those details shortly)
How can I join you next year?
Sweet!! I feel so honored you want to join me ;) At the beginning of last year I set a goal to help at least 5 people a month reach their health and fitness goals. As I poured my heart into helping these amazing people achieve their goals, I naturally was earning "points" to attend the trip! The best part about my job as a coach isn't these trips, it's what these trips stand for and that's putting people first, listening to them and helping them reach their goals.
Throughout 2016, I accumulated success club points as I mentioned above. Thee points are earned when people join a virtual fitness and nutrition accountability group with me and commit to a challenge pack which includes a workout program of their choosing, a nutrition plan to meet their needs and Shakeology for health benefits. As I earned these points throughout the year, I was able to earn (not win - lol) the trip for free. On top of that I also earned $750 in resort credit to pay for Brian and I to go on a snorkeling excursion and to spend a morning at the Hard Rock's incredible spa! All food and beverages were also include at the resort. And for complete transparency with you, I paid a $300 deposit which held both mine and Brian'd spot on this trip.
I worked in the air while before landing in Punta Cana. The shuttle service took us to the resort which was about 20 minutes away. We were greeted by lively music and refreshing cocktails upon check in. This trip, while I worked some by my own choice, was a getaway, a reward. Yes, workouts by Beachbody's super trainers Autumn Calabrese of 21 Day Fix and Chris Downing of the soon to be released Shift Shop were provided live each morning and yes, a top 10 coach panel was there to help us grow, but the only thing that was mandatory was to have FUN ;)
Live workouts were provided each morning and you had a choice of two different workout to kick off the day! The workouts took place in a large (air conditioned - lol) ballroom. Each trainer brought their A game and made sure everyone got a good sweat in. And just because these workout were 30 minutes doesn't mean my legs weren't on FIYA!! Something had to burn off the wine and fruity drinks I had right ;) To preview our workout with the newest trainer Chris Downing and his workout program Shift Shop click HERE. I cannot wait for this program to come out, he is an amazing trainer and a very inspiring and down to earth individual.
ANY Coach has the opportunity to earn these yearly trips, no matter your rank in the company or the length of time you've been a Coach. This is a trip intended to reward any coach who is part of Beachbody's bigger mission to end the trend of obesity.
What was your favorite part of the trip?
Honestly? That question is SO hard to answer. From meeting Coaches I had only "met" through online interactions, to meeting the super trainers one on one. To spending time with my team and success partner and getting a moment to reconnect with my husband (which is so hard to do sometimes with little kids at home). From snorkeling with the rays, sharks and amongst the coral reefs to the end of the trip farewell party on the beach complete with music, food, drinks and fireworks. I didn't want to blink for fear I would miss out on something amazing.
Simple answer, YES! If you have a passion and a desire to make a change in your own health and want a change for your current financial state, you CAN earn this trip. I could go on about how becoming a coach has changed my life and share what it has done for me, my family and my shift in mindset, and would be happy to share more... but here it is in a nutshell...
I am a former grade school teacher who used her organizational and classroom skills to build a coaching business from home. Two years into coaching, I was able to earn what I was making as a teacher allowing me to stay at home full time with my son oldest son and now both boys! When I became a Coach we had no extra money, no savings and I had to sell furniture to pay for my first workout program and challenge pack. I often wonder and look back on my choice to become a Coach (as scary as it was!) and think how different my life would be if I didn't purchase Insanity and Shakeology. If I didn't believe in myself and the others who I was beginning to help with their own goals. I just knew there had to be more to life than just making ends meat.
This opportunity has changed my life in more ways than I'm probably even aware of. I am thankful every day for the experiences Coaching has brought me. Want to learn more about coaching? Click HERE.
