Look out Nashville - we have arrived! Had such an AMAZING time navigating around Nashville last weekend for Beachbody's national Summit! Summit is a time for us coaches to get together and celebrate being coaches, educate ourselves how to help others reach their goals, surround ourselves with empowering and inspirational people, and most of all..have FUN!
Let's just say it was a definite success of accomplishing all of these things! - thought it was about time I did a bit of a photo dump/recap of our Nashville adventure. Ps. I'm already booked for next year... so you know it was good! :)
How many other people were at this event? This picture gives you a pretty good idea! Over 25,000 coaches were at Summit! This picture above is from the Super Workout Saturday morning at 6 am - and no we did not make it! Fighting a large crowd at 4 am is just not my thing... but for the record I DID get a run in that morning... The super workout looked awesome though! Hosted by trainers including Autumn Calabrese, Shaun T, Chalene Johnson....
Lexy and I left Fargo EARLY Thursday morning! (think 3 am alarm clock) but after some motion sickness events making it a long morning of traveling we finally made it! Met up with the girls Joelle and Lauren at our hotel and then went for lunch! After lunch we sat in the lobby for hours. Was awesome to have some girl time and just chat! And lots and lots of laughing happens. Like Joelle said... I'm pretty sure we got in lots of ab work with all that laughing :)
Obviously we are super cool with our lanyards as we made our way around to the different speakers on day 2! Wow Nashville is steamy btw. buuuuuttt while its like 100 degrees outside its like 50 degrees inside. Dress in layers people! I must mention that I'm super duper impressed with the energy of these two ladies - they outdo me any day! Did I mention they are both about to be MAMAs!!!?? Lexy (on the way left) is 30 weeks along and Courtney (in the middle) is 18 weeks! Don't they look AMAZING? That's what being an active healthy woman does for a mama :)
Of course I can't forget to mention some amazing eats from the trip! It was awesome that our hotel had a great continental breakfast. We did our best to fuel ourselves well there in the mornings. We packed lots of snacks for throughout the day and then usually grabbed something to eat in the evenings. Of course Summit wouldn't be complete without TWO shakeology bars at the conference. Made it easy to fit in all my nutrition as we possibly indulged a bit on our trip. Um... duh... we are human! We grabbed lunch at Bar Lines one day (located right next to the Omni hotel) and another day we also grabbed something at Margaritaville in down town Nashville. I'm still amazed at the fun atmosphere..there are bands EVERYWHERE. Every place we went had a band playing making it such a great atmosphere!
I was pleasantly surprised that we had over 200 coaches from our team at Nashville. So amazing to meet so many people actually in person! Even though this was the first time meeting many of them in person - it felt as though we have known each other for a LONG time! (thanks social media)
As you can see as coaches we are not shake drinking, meathead, workout all day, perfect people. We are just people like YOU. We care about ourselves and want to be the best people we can be - for our families, for our friends and for the people we serve. That is what we do..... we serve. We are dreamers and fighters. Each of us has our own story and our own journey that is unique to us.
It blows my mind that in less than one year I have met so many awesome people. I never thought I would ever dare to venture on a trip with people I never even knew existed one year ago - and now a few of them are my best friends. I truly feel blessed with this opportunity and absolutely feel on FIRE for it.
Listen to your heart and do what lights your soul on fire. For there you will find your destiny.
