09 May Success Club Trip 2017, Punta Cana
Seriously, how often do you get a 6 day ALL INCLUSIVE trip FREE for a company that you have been a part of, for for you AND a guest? Until three years ago, I would have been like what? You have got to be joking! But it is true! I just came back from Punta Cana, and I just couldn’t wait to share what a good time I had! I have had some messages of curiosity about the Success Club trips that I have the honour of attending as a Team Beachbody Coach so I thought a blog would be a great way to share the information!!
I hope with this blog, you will get a taste of the opportunities that present themselves when an individual has chosen to be a Team Beachbody coach. Within only 8 months of becoming a coach back in 2014, I was invited to my first Success Club trip!
In fact, this is the third one earned since I started my journey! The first one was at the Moon Palace Resort in Mexico. Last year, it was an ENTIRE cruise (Oasis of the Seas) chartered by, Team Beachbody exclusively for coaches! Unfortunately I had to forfeit that trip as I was pregnant and the cruise won’t allow you to sail past 24 weeks. Even still, I was able to live vicariously through the coaches that got to attend and know that I too had earned that trip!!!
What does a Success Club Trip Look Like?
Two words “JAW- DROPPING!”
So I am not going to focus on the background of how I got here, but instead on the amazing time we had at the Hardrock Hotel & Casino, Punta Cana! Before I get into the heart of it, I have to tell you how exciting that several members of my team were able to join me on this trip including my Upline coach!! I had two of my personally sponsored coaches attend the trip. They in turn, brought their personally sponsored coaches and one brought her husband! It was amazing to get to know the other girls a little better too since most of our communication is through social media!!!
Some of my team!
The company spoils you beyond anything like I have ever seen! It all begins right at the airport with shuttles holding “WELCOME, TEAM BEACHBODY signs!”
In the shuttle and ready to roll!
Upon arrival at the Resort, the entire entrance was decked out in Success Club logos, welcome signs, cold cloths, roses, drinks and even the executives to greet us!!!
Entrance of the Hard Rock!
Check in was a breeze! No line up! With over 7, 000 people checking, in I would say, that is pretty amazing! 4, 000 coaches were here plus their spouses or whomever they chose to bring!
Each trip there is always a creative place to write your goals as a coach, as a person, a mentor, a dreamer, a visionary, a friend! ! I LOVED the message on the “Message In a Bottle!”
You could write your goals on a sticky note, roll them up and add them to the display!
“WORK the DREAM, to see it ACHIEVED!” There is nothing more satisfying to put your heart and soul into something you are so genuinely passionate about and to see what amazing things can be achieved!
Everything on this trip was top notch! The grounds were GORGEOUS! The food was amazing! The room was fabulous and HUGE!!!
The opening ceremony was INCREDIBLE! From lights, crazy decorations, food, drinks and a brief Welcome from Corporate it was a sight to see!
Scott and I at the opening ceremony!
I even got to snag a picture at the opening party, with Isabelle Daikeler, who I truly admire! She is the Co-Creator of Shakeology and I have been fortunate to have a couple of 1:1 zoom calls with her about Shakeology with my team and also on a call with her about Authenticity! Isabelle one of the most genuine women I have ever met! She truly radiates with passion for life, health and vitality!
Isabelle (Co-Creator of Shakeology) and I!!!
Our team opening night! My Coach, Lisa and I!
We got the privilege to workout with our favourite Super Trainers each morning! Sometimes we even worked out back to back to see them both!!! This wave, we were blessed with working out with Joel Freeman and Jericho Matthews from the ever so popular MMA inspired workouts, “Core De Force!”
And the newest Super Trainer to the Team Beachbody team, Chris Downing from the Shift Shop which will be released in July, 2017! Beachbody on Demand users will get a free sneak peek of this program in June!!!!
Can you find my team?
I love this shot of my hubby!
Each morning workouts were followed by SEVERAL Shakeology bars that took up the entire main lobby of the Hard Rock!
Yes, the Shakeology was free and there were different flavours each morning. This one was one of my faves!
We had the opportunity to listen to the CEO Carl Daikeler do a Q&A with the trainers……
….and with his wife this year, Isabelle Daikeler (Co-Creator of Shakeology) and hear her story first hand on how Shakeology came to be and why it is so amazing to our health! Seriously if I am being honest, I am a coach today because of Shakeology (not the workouts! ha ha! But I now am a big advocate for fitness for a healthier lifestyle through working out at home!) Check out my transformation story at your leisure!
Isabelle Daikeler, Co-Creator of Shakeology
Isabelle shared with us her expertise on many of the Superfoods in Shakeology AND why they are so pertinent to our health! She explained about the team and vigorous testing and traveling that goes into Shakeology that would make your jaw drop! I knew it was magic within one week and now I know why!
The food at the resort was AMAZING! The iced mocha’s near put me over the edge! ha ha! I know what you are thinking….Ok, you are a coach promoting a healthy lifestyle and are drinking iced Mochas? For the record, I believe in BALANCE! If you can’t live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy some treats once in a while, that is not cool!
*Please note —- I did not enjoy these donuts, but in the past I probably would have eaten two at once! The iced mochas were my thing this trip…. all about balance people… all about balance!
Another perk of this trip was that everyone invited was also given almost $1000.00 USD Resort Credit! So guess where Scott and I went? Yes! To the spa! We enjoyed almost 4 hours there and spent our remaining credits at the gift shop shopping for our little ones at home!
Is a Success Club Trip REALLY Free?
So I know you are all wondering… ok, is a Success Club trip really free? And what is the real deal? Yes it totally is! As a Team Beachbody coach, there are certain opportunities and incentives that you can achieve depending on your personal goals as a coach and whether you want to coach for fun or see it as a business opportunity. Helping 3-5 people a month achieve their health and fitness goals, is a great foundation for any coach! Helping others by sharing your journey and inspiring others? Totally a “Win-Win!” With reaching these goals, not only are you helping people change their future, but as an incentive for paying your support and knowledge forward you earn what are called “Success Clup Points!” As a coach reaching Success Club 5 or Success Club 10 and you are on track towards a Success Club trip and even monthly incentives as a thank you from the company!! From fitness tanks, products, Personal Development books and even calls with popular authors and motivational speakers! The incentives are pretty awesome!
When you reach Success Club each month you earn trip dollars and those trip dollars accumulate and are put towards your all inclusive stay towards the destination chosen for the annual trip! If you don’t achieve Success Club and have an invitation to the trip, then you as a coach are responsible to pay the difference. The base room is around $1,200 dollars and if you choose you can certainly upgrade your room to something more deluxe even a Presidential Suite if you wish, but that is on *your own dollar. We have never upgraded and our room in both stays have been pretty posh at both resorts! You have the privilege of taking one guest for free! So luckily my main squeeze obviously has earned this right to accompany me. He has earned my respect by attending the first trip and seeing for his own eyes, “Holy smokes! This Beachbody stuff” you are doing IS FOR real! He
We got to spend an extra week in paradise, basically thanks to Beachbody! My hubby and I decided 4 years ago that we would take an annual trip together. And this year, thanks to the Success Club trip, not only did we get to spend a week on a cruise with our entire family, but we got to afford an extension of our already paid trip for some 1:1 time! On top of it, we also got to share it with my sweet coach friend of mine Megan and her hubby Steven! Talk about building friendships and inspiring one another!
If there is one thing that I have learned in this coaching gig of mine, it is to BE AUTHENTIC. To be GENUINE in helping others, to SHARE your journey, have FUN and INSPIRE!! If you work hard, are diligent in putting the needs of others before yours, you will be greatly rewarded. I believe in what you put out, truly comes back to you.
Have FUN! Be FUNNY! Be AUTHENTIC!
Coaching has LITERALLY changed my life! Literally! I could go on and on and on, but hopefully you can tell from the blog what a fun time I had surrounded by those whose lives have changed too! For those that follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you probably have an inkling!
If you have ever thought about coaching, then consider joining my team! Many of us are women with careers, moms, nurses, teachers, stay-at-home moms. Some on my team have even retired from their corporate jobs to coach full-time. How awesome is that?
In addition, I am part of the #1 Team in the entire network! It is truly amazing! Feel free to send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org , a Facebook message or fill out the form below for more information or to express your interest in a potential coaching role!
