What is it?
Each year Beachbody rewards its top coaches with a reward trip to celebrate their hard work and dedication for helping others reach their fitness and financial goals. This year it was at the beautiful Atlantis Resort at Paradise Island, Bahamas. The resort is absolutely huge and first class. It has 3 hotels, numerous pools, a casino, water park, dolphins and so many other amenities that I can’t even begin to mention. Beachbody always goes all out on these trips. The food they provide is always very healthy and everything is so well organized.
During our 5 day, 4 night stay, we covered a lot of ground. Since I decided to bring the whole family, I don’t think we missed any of the pools. My 7 and 10 year old daughters love to swim and needed to check them all out. We also spent some time at the beach. The sand was soooo soft and the water soooo blue. It was like a real life postcard!
Each night was a Beachbody dinner and social gathering. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with other successful Beachbody coaches from across the country. Some of whom I’ve already gotten to know and others that I met for the first time. It’s a different world since the invention of the Internet, YouTube and Facebook. After interacting with someone for several months and then meeting in person for the first time, it makes it feel like you’ve known them forever.
We also were able to workout with celebrity trainers Tony Horton, Shaun T and Leandro Carvalho on the beach. It was a surreal experience, especially the yoga session with Tony Horton and the sunrise workout with Shaun T. We worked out hard and then were treated with Shakeology and fruit afterwards. Shaun T even had all the kids one up on stage for one of the circuits. The kids loved it!
I also had a chance to joke around some with Tony Horton. It may sound even over dramatic but I owe my change in mindset to Tony’s Home fitness program of P90X. He’s just as goofy and humorous in person as he is in the DVDs. P90X helped me transform my waistline and then my approach to fitness and health. Now I help others throughout the United States and Canada do the same.
Another perk that Beachbody offered as a reward on this trip was a photo shoot to highlight our physical transformation. They brought professional photographers and did an excellent job.
In addition to all the dinners, workouts and pool activity were the planned business sessions. One of them was a question and answer session with the trainers. Tony Horton, Shaun T and Leandro Carvalho (creator of Brazil Butt Lift) fielded questions from CEO Carl Daikeler and other Beachbody coaches. Craig Holiday also packed the room and provided his usual wisdom on life and succeeding with your business. He is an incredible motivational speaker that helps you move your business forward.
With the massive size of the resort and all the activities and people, it was hard to decide on my favorite part. If I had to say one thing, it would simple be the plush sand and the ocean. It didn’t even seem real. I will definitely make a promise to come back very soon.
Beachbody Success Club Trip – 2013 in Orlando!
It was an incredible experience and one that I will never forget. Just when I thought things were winding down on the last night’s party, a fireworks display erupted. It was symbolic of how Beachbody always goes above and beyond everyone’s expectations. Music was playing and then I capped it off even more by dancing up on stage with my daughters. Next year’s trip is in Orlando at the Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. I am already half way there for qualifying. You can join me on Beachbody’s dime. Help me end the trend of obesity and others get their health back. I can show you how.
