I am still trying to get over my vacation hangover. Not from the food and the drinks. But from the high of being surrounded by such an incredible community of people who just get you. My husband and i just got back a couple days ago from the Beachbody Success Club Trip. This is actually the FOURTH trip i earned through the company for being a coach. (I will talk more lower down how i earned this trip)
These trips started for me when i was a newer coach. I was a month into the business when they announced there would be a cruise the following year for coaches who rocked their business in 2013. The skeptic in me as a new coach, had no idea what it was all about and totally discounted myself from it. Telling myself ‘i am not successful nor will i be.” 3 months later i saw so many of my new coach friends on their trip to Disney!
FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) kicked it for me as i was still learning the business. At that moment i said — ‘I am going to be on that cruise next year fully earned’. So i worked my butt off and was able to earn the trip. It was an amazing experience. It was even cooler that i earned the trip for me AND another person! So i was able to bring my mom as a guest!
I kept shooting for those trips (because who doesn’t want to travel yearly) and the following year i went to Cancun and the next year was another cruise. Unfortunately the fully earned Cruise i wasn’t able to make as we were closing on our house and timing was just bad.
This trip to the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana was my husbands first ever Beachbody trip with me. I was so excited to have him experience the vibe and community that coaching is all about. At one point i even said ‘What do you think about Beachbody now? Can you believe we EARNED this trip?‘ It’s still an unreal feeling to be a part of a company who rewards you just for helping people!
So when we first got to the resort, we were welcomed with music, food and drinks! Something you should know is that Beachbody never does anything without skipping details! When we got off the shuttle bus, we were welcomed with roses and cheering us on for our success. When we checked it, we were told we would be staying in a Suite down by the beach. Which was SO COOL! Check out my video below for my tour of the room!
After getting settled we headed down to the pool to meet up with a couple of my coaches who earned the trip as well! (SO COOL!!) We check out the resort for a bit and then headed back to the suite to get ready for the WELCOME reception that Beachbody put together. Again, they don’t miss a single detail!
This was our most super laid back day. My husband and i skipped the morning workouts and slept in. It was seriously our first time sleeping in in what feels like forever. Plus we were on Vacation aka our time. PLUS, it was raining that morning. Perfect chance to catch some ZZzz’s. We got up slowly and then did Max 30 in the room. After lunch it started to clear up so we posted up by the pool with our team who was there for the remainder of the day.
We did it!!! We got up early and made it to the 7:30 am Autumn Calabrese workout! Now keep in mind. This is a ‘work trip’ but it’s not required we have to do work. Yes this is a vacation and we are not required to workout. BUT, when a trainer you have been working with through your TV with DVD’s is hosting a live workout, you get your ass up and workout WITH HER and thousands of coaches live. They even had a Shakeology bar there when we were done! (No extra charge!)
We did it again! Got up early for the last workout of the trip. This workout was necessary. This workout was for the brand new program coming in July called SHIFT SHOP! It’s not even released yet but we got to preview it with new super trainer Chris Downing! It was such a KILLER workout. It was so cool to have the chance to get a sneak peak of this workout before anyone else does. Guess it’s another perk of these already amazing trips! (Click here to get on my list to be the first to know SHIFT SHOP details)
This was certainly a memorable last day for the trip. We got to do a new workout with a new super trainer. The FULL SUN decided to pop out instead of just clouds. I was able to take my husband and the rest of my team that was there SWIMMING WITH DOLPHINS! (Beachbody gave us $750 resort dollars to spend on whatever we wanted) And they ended the night on the beach! With the most incredible farewell party that took over just about the entire length of the Hard Rock Beach! Full of music, fun, dancing and food! Of course because Beachbody doesn’t skip details. The trip ended with a firework light show!
Was this trip really free??
Right to the point, Yes! I wanted to end this blog post sharing exactly HOW i was able to earn this trip and how i was able to earn the past 3 trips as well. When i first started and heck, even before i signed up, i never believed something like this was possible. As an outsider looking in — I thought it was a scam too.
So how did i do it? It was simple really. I made the commitment to help 5 people every single month start their health and fitness journey through my virtual challenge groups with our Team Beachbody Challenge Packs. The more i focused on helping people get started and achieve their goals, i was naturally earning trip points along the way.
I KNOW it sounds too good to be true. Remember i was in your shoes too when i didn’t believe it either. But my job as a coach is to help people and help them get results and help them feel good about themselves. And this company rewards you for doing that consistently through the year. (Jan – Dec)
Through the year i was getting what we call in coaching land ‘Success Club Points‘. Points are given when challengers commit to a challenge pack joining a virtual challenge group. As i continued to help people and achieve success club, i was able to earn the trip for free. Every point had a dollar amount attached to it which was put towards the total of the trip. We were also able to earn $750 resort credit which we can use for anythng on the resort. We were able to take a trip to swim with dolphins which was amazing because my husband has never done that. Plus, all food and drinks were included! (Full disclosure: we had to pay a $300 deposit. We were more than fine with covering that)
Want the best news?
ANY COACH can earn these trips. It doesn’t matter how long you have been a coach. It doesn’t matter your rank or how successful you are. If you are willing and committed to helping people each month consistently, you too can join us on the next trip in 2018 to Riviera Maya! This trip is to celebrate success at any level!
