I recently got home from a fun “work trip” courtesy of Team Beachbody. It was the annual “Success Club” trip that Coaches are able to earn. My first success club trip was in 2015 when my husband and I went to the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. Unfortunately, due to other family plans, we had to cancel the 2016 Beachbody Oasis Cruise; however, we were really pumped that we’d be able to make it to the Hard Rock Resort in Punta Cana this year! After posting a lot of pictures, I have been getting questions coming in about the trip, how I earned it, what we did, what was included, and if you have to be a “seasoned” Coach in order to earn it. SO, I thought I would do a post about it that not only explain how my trip went, but also what was included and who was able to qualify.
First, let’s chat about the trip! When you earn this trip it includes on guest at no additional cost. If you would like to bring your kids or other family then there is an additional charge per night. This year we had two options. We could go in the first wave which was Sunday through Thursday, or the second wave, which was Thursday through Monday. I choose, along with my team of Coaches, the second wave. Like the last trip, I brought my husband along with me. I have to admit, it feels pretty good to be able to offer my husband an amazing trip that I earned for my personal hard work and efforts!
Upon arrival, we were greeted with a cool cloth due to the heat, as well as a pretty rose. Trust me when I say, no stone is left unturned! Between professional photographers, resort dancers / entertainment, and the AMAZING spread of food, we were already walking in to luxury.
There were roughly 4,000 coaches and 7,000 people total so I assumed that check-in would be crazy; however, from the time we stepped off of the bus, checked in, mingled with drinks / snacks, got our luggage, and walked in to our beautiful room, it was only about 60 minutes max! I opted to go with a standard room knowing that I would have no additional expense. When I registered, we considered bringing our daughters (hence the two beds) but opted not to once we got closer to date.
The Hard Rock Resort & Casino is a FABULOUS place to vacation! There is a lot of entertainment, beautiful pools and an AMAZING beach!
The first evening we were invited to a Team Beachbody welcome reception at the outdoor Woodstock Plaza. Of course, it was beautifully decorated and we were welcomed by CEO Carl Daikler, along with other corporate members Jeff Hill and Michael Neinamd. It was an evening of chatting with friends, meeting other Coaches, enjoying some yummy drink and delicious food, complete with an awesome DJ.
Friday thru Sunday mornings we have optional celebrity workouts with Core De Force trainers Joel and Jericho as well as brand new trainer, Chris Downing. This was Chris’s first large Beachbody event and a HUGE perk that we had was being able to try out 3 of his workouts from Shift Shop, which will be released in July! The energy that you get during live workouts is indescribable. They are fun, motivating, and help you to truly push your limits! I LOVED that I was able to share this experience with Coaches on my team, some of whom were experiencing these live workouts for the first time!
As a team, we hit up most workouts and enjoyed every minute!
A Beachbody event wouldn’t be complete without Shakeology, right?! You better believe that every morning of our trip there was a Shakeology bar with a few different featured recipes!
Another perk of being on this trip was to attend a meeting / training with the CEO of the company, Carl Daikler. I have listened to him speak several times and every single time I get more motivated and fired up to do my job as a Coach. He is an incredible motivator and has such a genuine passion for helping others live health, fulfilling lives. Throughout his meeting we had the opportunity to listen to Joel and Jericho speak as well s Chris Downing. This was a great chance to learn more about the new program, Shift Shop and how it came to be.
One of my favorites parts of this meeting; however, was when Carl brought out his wife, and co-creator or Shakeology, Isabelle Daikler. Isabelle spoke for about 30 minutes about the foundation of Shakeology, the new vegan flavors, and the addition of new ingredients Matcha and Chaga. It was really an eye-opener to listen to her story and get an even stronger background of how beneficial Shakeology is.
Another perk that every single Coach got was a $750 resort credit! This wasn’t something that you had to earn, it was included with the trip for every room. Matt and I took advantage of that money by using Rock Spa, which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! We decided to get our first “holistic relaxing” couples massage as well as a facial. This was definitely something that I wouldn’t typically spend my money on so having this resort credit at our fingertips was a special perk to me.
As for the rest of our time, we spent a good bit of it together as a team. It was SO nice to meet some of the wonderful Coaches in my downline, as well as reconnect with a few that I’ve already met. It’s funny how it feels like you’ve known someone forever and yet you’ve only just met! I feel so happy, blessed, and grateful to have such kind, inspirational women to work as a team with. While we did talk business for a bit, it was nice to just hang out and get to know each other even better.
And I can’t forget about my main squeeze that was with me through it all. I loved that I was able to bring my husband along so that he, too, could experience a Beachbody event. It was nice that he got to meet some of my team as well as their husbands. But even better was that we were able to have 4 kid-free date day/nights!
The final night of our trip was spent at a Team Beachbody Farewell party. While it was supposed to be on the beach, the rain put a damper on things and it was moved indoors. It didn’t phase us though! The DJ was playing, the drinks were mixing, and the food was cooking! It was our last night together as a team until we head to New Orleans for Coach Summit in July!
To complete the trip, I was able to snag a picture with new trainer, Chris Downing! He was so sweet and let me tell you, I was SORE from his workouts! I can’t wait for Shift Shop to be released and will definitely be putting together a test group for it!
Overall we had a wonderful time on our trip and I can’t wait to visit the Hard Rock Riviera Maya in April 2018! Yep, it’s already booked and I’ve already earned more than half of it! To say that there is no I in team is SO true. When I started out with my Beachbody Coaching journey I had no idea where it was going to take me. I was happy to be able to earn enough to cover my monthly Shakeology and have a little extra “shopping” money. Building a team and taking on that leadership role was in the back of my mind but I honestly had no clue if it was ever going to happen. Sure enough, it has happened and we are growing larger and larger by the month! I wish that everyone within my team would have been able to come experience this trip, but I was thrilled to have the six that did come!
To answer some commonly asked questions that have come my way the past few days….
Was this trip really free?
- The 5 day 4 night trip was free because I earned it. We did have to pay a $300 non-refundable deposit, our flights to get there, transportation to the resort and airport ($20), and of course any incidentals along the way (like Starbucks!). Since the resort was all-inclusive the food/drinks were included as well.
How do you earn it?
- The value of the standard room that we were in was $1200, which is what I earned. There were some options to upgrade to presidential suites at an additional cost; however we did not choose to do so. As a Coach, I run monthly virtual accountability groups. I set a goal of helping at least 5 new clients each month by hooking them up within one of my groups, along with a Beachbody fitness program and Shakeology. In helping at least 5 people each month I was able to earn the $1200 to cover my room! If you did not earn your $1200 then you simply paid the difference.
Is this trip open to all Coaches?
- This trip is called a Success Club trip. That means the Coaches who are consistently helping new clients each month will get an invite. While there are limited spots on the trip (due to only being able to fit so many people on the resort), those who are consistent with building their business end up going. They can be a first year Coach or someone who has been Coaching for years!
I think that about covers it! I can not tell you how proud I am to say that I am a Team Beachbody Coach. Being able to make an impact in someone’s life is one of the most fulfilling feeling you can have. It’s crazy to think that because I felt like I was in a rut, becoming a negative person, and looking for something to fulfill me, that I wasn’t getting in my past job, I am now a “Girl Boss” who is setting one goal after the next.
Believe me when I say, if I can do it, YOU CAN TOO!! It’s not about how much time you have, it’s about spending the time you DO have focused on completing those tasks that will move you up the ladder. It’s about being focused and disciplined in order to just get it done!
Because I made a decision to just GO FOR IT, I am now
living my life by design
forming incredible friendships
earning an income by making an impact
traveling (on my own terms)
and so much more!
And guess what?
I had ZERO social media experience.
I had no clue what a blog was!
I knew NOTHING about network marketing!
But I had, and have, a vision of what I want my life and future to look like.
What are you waiting for? Do you feel that you are in that rut and just don’t know which direction to take?
