Beachbody Coach Summit 2013

by Jeff Curry July 24, 2013

When I decided to become a Beachbody coach in October 2012, I made that decision after experiencing a life transformation with Beachbody’s home fitness programs.  I also spent a significant amount of time researching the company that I was getting into.  I had never entertained the idea of network marketing prior to this, and I had ALOT to learn.  I immediately started to reach out to other coaches in an effort to absorb as much knowledge as I could about what being a Beachbody coach was really all about.    As a new coach, I heard from everyone in the Beachbody community about the importance of attending the annual Coach Summit in Las Vegas.  The 2013 Coach Summit was held at the MGM Grand Resort, June 23-25, 2013.  What an amazing experience!

 

Our Team DitchtheBelly is small, but growing, but we were well represented.  We had seven coaches represented from our little team, and we made the most of it.  Summit kicked off on Thursday afternoon with the Opening Session.  Beachbody CEO Carl Deikler wowed the crowd of more than 7,000 coaches when he entered the arena Cirque de Solel’ style – suspended from the ceiling of the Grand Garden Arena!!  Carl gave his introductory speech while flipping and spinning above the crowd.  It was absolutely crazy.  From there on, the 2013 Summit did not disappoint.

 

As one of the lucky coaches who qualified to attend the White Party on opening night, my wife and I were amazed at the scene of more than 5,000 Beachbody coaches wearing all white.  The White Party took over the entire pool complex at the MGM Grand.  For anyone who is familiar with the MGM pool complex, you can appreciate how massive this party truly was!  It was a pool party for the memory book for sure.  Deikler again “got the party jumpin’” when he hopped on stage and kicked off the dancing.  Anyone who has seen this man dance knows how entertaining that can be.  In a word, hysterical!  Oh, and good luck recognizing someone you know when everybody is dressed in ALL WHITE!  We had a blast and it was a wonderful kickoff to the weekend.  Lesson learned at the White Party – DON’T DRINK RED WINE!

 

Over the course of the weekend, there were general sessions in the Grand Garden Arena, that kicked off the morning both Friday and Saturday.  Superstar coaches were recognized for their amazing dedication to their teams and their communities alike.  Top coaches also shared tips with the crowd on how they have recognized success with this amazing company.  On Saturday, the crowd was motivated to action by world renowned leadership speaker and educator, John Maxwell.  Immediately following the general sessions, the sea of coaches was released and literally overwhelmed the entire MGM Grand Mall – this is not a small area, but it was shoulder to shoulder with Beachbody!!  The line for the pre-purchased sack lunch was CRAZY, but everybody got fed without any incident.  It was truly an amazing site to see.  Lesson Learned from the general sessions – BE PATIENT!

 

Immediately following the general sessions on both days, the afternoons were packed with Top 10 Coach led workshops.  Superstar coaches from around the country shared their secrets with thousands of eager coaches.  Each ballroom held at least 1,000 people, and most of the workshops were standing room only.  Personally, I learned so much at these workshops that I found them to be the most valuable experience of the 2013 Coach Summit.  Lesson learned from the Summit Workshops – SHOW UP EARLY and TAKE BETTER NOTES!

 

In all, my takeaway from the 2013 Coach Summit was that it is an invaluable experience for coaches of any experience level, or for customers who are considering becoming a coach and aren’t quite sure what Beachbody is all about.  All attendees quickly learned that Beachbody is about PEOPLE.  It is about helping people lead healthier and happier lives, and for some it is about financial freedom as they achieve success as a coach.  For a new coach, Summit is a learning and networking opportunity that is second to none.  Summit isn’t free, and many coaches had to sacrifice to get there, but I did not meet anyone who felt that it was not well worth the sacrifice.  Personally, I will strongly encourage all of my new coaches, and experienced coaches, to attend Coach Summit 2014, and all to follow thereafter, and soak it all in.
