Visited Beachbody Headquarters

So I had a crazy week this week and was chosen to be in a coach training video for Beachbody, talking about what coaches do and how we do it. So they flew me out to LA to do the video shoot and I must say it was a blast! I love it every time I’m able to go to Santa Monica and be around the people at BB HQ. It reminds me of why I got into this business. It reminds me of how many people are out there that need our help and why it’s so important to help them. When you’re out there with the "big wigs", you realize they’re very down to earth and genuinely care about ending the obesity trend in this country. It’s not just some slogan to sell more dvds. It starts at the top and flows down and I don’t think I’ve met one person there that wasn’t in love with their job.
But I must say one of the coolest surprises was getting to see Tony Horton again. I lucked up and they were rehearsing for the taping of P90X MC:2 (which will be out this summer), so that was an unexpected treat to see. Every time I see him I can’t resist telling him how he helped me lose 70lbs of fat and unhappiness that I was lugging around for way too many years. Yeah I know it’s me that did the work and me that pushed play….but it was his genius mind and Carl’s (BB CEO) drive to get the product out there. A product that was different from anything the country or the world had seen before with home fitness and a product that gave me the tools to do it without the gym or a trainer. It was the P90X infomercial that made me sit up and take notice of the 38 waist jeans getting tight. I love bragging on him and what he’s helped me do since the last time I saw him and how I’m in love with the new "One on One’s" he’s putting out. They’ve blown my fitness up and made P90X even harder. It’s funny, it was just last January (2010) that I asked him for advice when I realized I wasn’t getting the results I wanted from P90X. He challenged me to get stricter on the diet and push myself harder with the workouts. He also recommended some supplements that I might want to look into and with that advice I was off! I saw him a few months later in April and was down 18 more lbs. and he was happy. I think his quote in January was "If you’re the same when I see you in April, then I’m going to kick your ….". I didn’t need that as motivation…but I was happy to see that I met the challenge. And it’s only gotten better from there.
Being out there this week, just re-energized my passion for helping people. I know that there’s a lot of people out there that want to get in shape and need help and support to do it. I also know that if I can do it, anyone can! But it’ll take sacrifice, it’ll take you putting in the hard work and making the lifestyle change. Yes, it’ll mean eating healthier and splurging less….but at some point you have to know the splurging will catch up with you….right? If you don’t know that, I encourage you to grasp that concept.
This company has changed my life both financially and physically. It’s introduced me to people who made the decision and are now success stories. Jamie Morgan in St. Louis who lost 80lbs with Insanity. My dear friend Mason Brown in Miami who’s lost 60lbs with P90X and is still going! You can be a success story too! I encourage you to reach out to us and let us help you reach your goals. Why not you? What excuse do you have that out weighs your health and happiness? Why are you putting it off? It doesn’t have to be P90X or Insanity. It can be Body Gospel or Slim in 6. You can start off light and grow from there.
We’re here to help and will do whatever you need to keep you on track. All we ask is you meet us halfway. Or if you’re interested in coaching and want to join us in ending the trend of obesity, then contact us and join our team! Hope this finds you well and look forward to getting to know you better.
