A few weeks ago I went to my first Beachbody LIVE event, Super Saturday. It's a quarterly event where local coaches come together to network, motivate, inspire, and connect with one another.
One of my favorite things about being a Beachbody coach is the community that comes with it. Pretty much, it's everything you want in a group of best friends, but it's a business! So your entire team is like a sorority of your very best BFFs constantly encouraging you, celebrating with you, and making you strive to be better.
Super Saturday was pretty super.
We started the morning off with a photo booth (we dressed up western since we are headed to Nashville for Summit this summer) and some snacks. Then we heard people share their amazing transformation stories through their Beachbody experience.
The thing I love about these stories is that it's more than a physical transformation. Yes, it is very easy to see the physical changes these people went through as they stand at the front of the room holding out the pants they no longer fit into or sharing a before/after image on the screen. But, the real transformation is when they start to share the deeper story.
The story about the twice-divorced mother of 2 who was an addict before she took this leap to better herself and truly find herself. The story about the woman who decided to follow her dream after her 2 grown songs left home, eventually closing her salon because Beachbody has provided such a financial stability in her life there is no reason for her to work outside home anymore. The story about the woman who had an eating disorder until she found Beachbody, learned to be healthy, and decided to help others do the same.
These are the stories that inspire me. I realize I don't have to coach; it's not my only source of income. But, I really am not doing it for the money - I love helping people do what's right for themselves and their family. Nothing brings me greater joy than to celebrate in others' success.
Once we heard the transformation stories, some top local coaches shared a presentation on staying motivated and crushing goals. We watched some film from corporate and got super excited about the upcoming Cize launch in July.
Then we changed into our workout clothes and got a good sweat on together. This was my favorite part of the day. I love working out at home; I love paying no monthly gym fee and sweating it out without leaving my house, but it's really fun to do that with a group of people.
I left Super Saturday feeling super charged. See what I did there?
I am super excited (okay, I'll stop) for Nashville in July. I've never been and I just know with the way this weekend left me that I'm going to come home 100% inspired and motivated to rock the world and help as many people reach their goals as possible.
