Sitting on the plane flying home from Coronado Bay in sunny southern California and of course the feeling of gratitude is overwhelming, but I find that word not quite enough to share the experiences of the past few days.

I was selected as one of 300 Team Beachbody coaches to attend the coveted all inclusive Leadership Retreat. We were treated to amazing gifts, exclusive parties, extravagant dinners, and top notch training from leaders in the network as well as professional, renowned speakers like Stephen Covey.
But for me, the week was leaving the desk and being present with other leaders in the network and having time to share best practices, discuss team cultures, and brainstorm new ideas for motivating our teams and raising awareness for our company’s mission.
Although I love the freedom of virtual networking, there is nothing like being face to face, interacting with others, that truly rejuvenates you and motivates you to push harder and dream bigger.

So I wanted to take a couple of minutes to share a little about my experiences this week by sharing my TOP FIVE favorite experiences from the event!
#5 Top Notch Treatment
First, I have to share that the resort our company selected is absolutely beautiful. Cascading fountains and staircases, amazing service, and beautiful views from every room make this group.
The company also went out of their way to present each Elite coach with a gift when they returned to their rooms each night. We received a hardcover Summit 2016 Yearbook, a new hooded sweatshirt, and carry on luggage- perfect for bringing home all the swag I also scored at our shop, The Core. The dining experience was incredible. I found it pretty easy to stay compliant on the Whole30 plan, aside from one dressing slip up, there were plenty of delicious options!

#4 Networking with the other coaches
Having the opportunity to work with my team, other coaches who experience similar ups and downs in the business, and truly take the time to converse about how to move forward couldn’t have come at a better time. I also had the honor of having my first personally sponsored coach, Kirsten Nuss attend the event with me. Although we are able to speak every
day virtually, it was such a gift to have that quality time together.

#3 Team Building: Beach Olympics
There was also a lot of time to play! I mean in a business that’s about health and fitness, how can we not get active with some team development! So the sales team set up a ridiculously awesome beach event with 10 obstacles that involved working together to achieve the prize of… a surf board. Nope I don’t surf, but my eye was for sure on the prize! Although we didn’t win, our team laughed so hard as we crushed each obstacle… drenched from head to toe, laughing so hard we were crying!

#2 The Amazing Training
I attended three days of training hearing from network coaches and motivational speakers. Each speaker brought so much heart and wisdom to the table, it was impossible to leave anything but uninspired by their passion! Yes, some of the training were a gut check, others were encouragement for our hard work, and each was a reminder of the bigger mission. Our job is to help people achieve THEIR goal of a healthy and fulfilling life. And when you have the opportunity to make the mission your life’s purpose, it can totally ignite!

#1 Live workouts with our trainers, Joel Freeman, Jericho McMatthews, and Autumn Calabrese
Okay and how can I not LOVE the AMAZING workouts. Yes, each day I go down to the basement. I push play on my workouts and hear these trainers encourage and motivate me, but there is nothing like being front and center with these trainers in a small setting!
We had the chance to experience a few rounds of Joel and Jericho’s new workout, Core De Force, as well as Autumn Calabrese’s new Beachbody on Demand workouts!

By the end of the double workouts, we were drenched head to toe, sending out the high-fives around the room, and sharing the incredible experience with out teams!
But you know what I think was the best part of this, even after the workouts were complete, the trainers took time to get to know the leaders in the network. They took time to ask us questions. They wanted to know how our teams and challengers were doing. They genuinely care about helping people and I think that’s what I love best about the company.
We are rooted in the simple idea- Help people achieve THEIR goal of living a healthy and fulfilling life.
Looking forward to sharing my experiences with my team, and helping my challengers achieve amazing results!
Oh and next year- we go to Vegas! Want to join me?
