Coach Summit 2016

When you sign up to be a Team Beachbody Coach, you become an entrepreneur, CEO, girl boss, owner of your own business, etc.  You get to work for yourself…which I’m finding I’d much rather do!  You make the rules.  You decide how much you work or don’t work.  You get involved as little or as much as you want!  But my absolute FAVORITE thing about coaching is the challengers I work with and the coaches who are part of my team…Team Fit & Focused.  They have such a HUGE place in my heart!!  So when we have the chance to come together to spend 4 days together in Nashville, it is just INCREDIBLE!!  I get to work with so many of these coaches on a daily basis.  We email, message, text, etc.  We even get on ZOOM calls which is video conferencing.  We are all over the country and into Canada and we stay connected which is amazing.  But when I get to HUG these women, my heart just explodes!!

When I first started as a coach, I absolutely LOVED the challenge group environment.  This was an online health and fitness challenge where women shared their successes, struggles, and cheered each other on the entire time.  That community is what made me want to sign up as a coach.  And as my team continues to grow, our community just keeps getting bigger and brighter.  See my vision as a coach and leader is forming more and more each day.  It brings so much JOY to see women EMPOWERING other women….NOT comparing or judging….helping each other, growing, supporting, encouraging, and loving one another.  There is nothing quite like that.  And when we do ALL of those things TOGETHER, we help so many people with their health and fitness journeys.  It goes FAR beyond those physical results…we dig deep into the mental, emotional, and spiritual results, too!  Confidence, happiness, faith, self-love….these are all products of what we do as coaches on Team Fit & Focused.

So after spending an AMAZING trip in Nashville with Team Fit & Focused and all of the other thousands of coaches in the network, and letting it all soak in a bit this week, I have come up with my TOP 10 MOMENTS from Coach Summit 2016!

10. Doing the LIVE workout with Joel and Jericho….creators of the BRAND NEW program Core de Force coming out in November!!


9. Learning from TOP coaches, corporate, celebrity trainers Chalene Johnson and Shaun T, and keynote speakers like Gary Vanyerchuck!!

8. Attending the Leadership Ladder Party and Success Club Concert (Billy Idol) with other leaders in the company!


7. Walking across stage as a Success Club 10 Legend with one of my mentors and parading as a 3-Star Diamond Coach (representing Team Fit & Focused 💜) with my Success Partner.



6. Teaching a LIVE Insanity workout to coaches in our Fit Family Network!


5. Doing the SUPER WORKOUT with ALL the trainers and 20,000 coaches on Broadway!!



4. Being reminded…If you don’t do you, YOU don’t get done and the world misses out!

3. Hearing from Shaun T (my journey started with him and Insanity!!) on the main stage…Believe where you came from.  Trust where you are going.


2. Having my husband, Robb, my biggest supporter, there with our team!


1. And the many MEMORIES made with my team!  The time we spent together was priceless!! 💜


So grateful for all the ways my life has changed since I took a chance with this opportunity.  Saying “YES” to this was the best decision I have ever made!  I am so proud of where I am and where I am going!  It definitely hasn’t always been easy, but I have never looked back!

What Can You Gain?

Can we all put aside our preconceived notions, judgements, fears, and stereotypes for just a bit?? 😊
It is truly my obligation to share something that I have seen first hand change my own life and hundreds of other lives. 💗

⭐️Do you want to surround yourself with people who lift you up?
⭐️Do you want to grow into the best version of yourself?
⭐️Do you want to take control of your own health?
⭐️Do you want to help others?

If you said YES to any of the above questions, be like this sweet girl who tried something new. Ashlyn realized she wasn’t afraid of stopping at the top of the Ferris wheel and it was quite an amazing view! 🎡 Stop thinking about what could go wrong and instead what could go incredibly right!
I’m looking to mentor 3 women who want to change their life, their family’s life, and the people around them. This is an opportunity worth taking a chance on. There is absolutely nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain. 💕



Teaching IN and OUT of the Classroom

It’s amazing how much coaching and teaching truly are related.  When I was in the elementary classroom, I was educating young minds mostly about math and reading.  Outside of the classroom, I am educating adult minds about health and fitness.  Education is a very large part of being a health and fitness coach.  It is so important to educate people about the programs and nutrition products we offer as Beachbody coaches to help them make educated decisions about what would best help them reach their goals.


Teaching also served a higher purpose.  My goal was always to make a difference in a child’s life.  To help them learn to make good decisions and be productive outside of the classroom.  The skills I taught in the classroom helped my students do this outside of the classroom.  As a teacher I was also a role model to the children in my class.  I wanted to lead by example and provide support in areas other than just what we were learning.  Teachers play a big part in the emotional lives of our students.

Some may look at coaching as a “sales” job.  That is the LAST thing I consider coaching to be.  Once again it serves a higher purpose.  My goal as a coach is to truly make a difference in a person’s life.  To help them believe in themselves.  To realize they can take care of themselves AND be an amazing parent, spouse, etc.  To help them realize I understand the difficulties that go into a health and fitness journey, but they can get through those obstacles.  I also lead by example as a health and fitness coach.  I help people realize the importance of their own health and fitness journey and how it can help make a positive impact in every area of their life.

I decided to become a Beachbody Coach during probably one of the busiest times in my life.  My daughter was 9 months old and my son just turned 3.  I had recently gone back to work teaching in a classroom I still wasn’t quite familiar with (I was displaced the year before).  But when I started I knew no time would really be a good time.  I also realized I set my own pace with my business.  That was in January of 2013.  As that school year finished up, I was able to put a little more time into the business with my summer off.

Teaching and my education background sure have helped me change a lot of lives as a health and fitness coach.  It has also helped me teach my team of coaches to do the same!  I was able to go from full-time teacher to full-time coach!  It WAS NOT my intention to do so when I started.  And it sure doesn’t need to be your goal as a coach!  But it feels amazing to impact lives in such a positive way.  To use my teaching skills in a different way.  To have created this freedom for my family and me.  Not only can you help change other people’s lives, but you can change your own.  You can make a difference in your life and in your family’s life.  Whether that is with your own health and fitness goals or your financial needs or BOTH!  You can join in our mission!!

Success Club Trip 2016

When I signed up to become a Team Beachbody Coach, I really had NO clue about the benefits or the potential.  I just really wanted to help people achieve their health and fitness goals and live healthy, fulfilling lives.  Well it just so happens, there are some AMAZING incentives to do just that!  Every year you have the ability to EARN a trip for you and a guest (a trip for my hubby and me 😍).  On top of that, you can also earn some pretty awesome spending money as well!  This year’s trip was a cruise on the SS Beachbody to the Bahamas and Jamaica.


Beachbody chartered an entire cruise ship…the Oasis of the Seas.  Yes, that’s right!!  The LARGEST cruise ship in the world!  I was honored and privileged to be one of those 6,000 individuals on that ship.  Hard work really does pay off…even when it doesn’t feel like “work”!


There were so many highlights to this trip, but I’ve narrowed it down to my TOP 10….

1 – Being able to take Robb on this trip that I earned.  He is such a huge supporter in my business!

2 – Climbing Dunns River Falls and swimming with dolphins in Jamaica was INCREDIBLE!!


3 – Doing the workouts LIVE with all the trainers on deck!


4 – Getting so much quality time with all the amazing coaches on my team.



5 – Learning from our Elite Top 10 Coaches.

6 – Hearing the breaking news LIVE about the future products being released to reach even more people!

7 – Getting a Celebrity Photo Opp for being in the Top 200 star diamond and above coaches for Success Club.  It is truly a mission that includes all of us…trainers, coaches, and corporate.


8 – Being able to have one of my personally sponsored diamonds and best friend on her first Success Club trip with me.


9 – Having time to relax (including a massage at the spa ☺️) and fill my cup!!

10 – Realizing even more what an amazing company Beachbody is…they go ALL OUT and truly appreciate the coaches helping in their mission!


This definitely was an unforgettable trip.  I’m so blessed this opportunity has come into my life and I have been able to make it a full-time career. ❤️

Turn Your Passion for Fitness into Your Business

Three and a half years ago I was a stressed mama of two.  I was home on maternity leave with my two children, Jordan and Ashlyn.  Ashlyn at the time was only five months old.  I was struggling to balance everything and take care of myself.  AND I was about to throw working full-time as a teacher in the mix!!  I was trying to eat right, workout, and take care of myself, but it was TOUGH!  Losing the weight with my second baby was TOUGH!  I was feeling pretty down and being hard on myself.  I LOVED health and fitness.  I LOVED going to group fitness classes, but that was just not fitting into my schedule. I LOVED running, but running with two was tricky!  I needed to figure something out!!


Once I went back to work in my 4th grade classroom, to say I was overwhelmed would be an understatement!!  Life was CRAZY!!  I was approached by my coach to join an online health and fitness challenge group for busy moms.  I thought this would be PERFECT and was so excited!  I even invited two of my friends to join.  My husband had gotten Insanity during my pregnancy and I had yet to try it.  I was SO NOT into at home workouts!!  I didn’t think it was possible to get as good of a workout as I was at the gym.  Boy was I WRONG!!  Soon I was HOOKED on these workouts!!  I did them after school in my classroom and at home.  The support I got from the group of moms was TREMENDOUS!  I loved this positive environment and how it was making me so motivated and encouraged.  I was starting to feel so much better about myself.  As busy I was, adding in this program and accountability group made me feel better and balanced out my life.  Soon I started to drink Shakeology and lost (FINALLY 9 months later 😁) the rest of my baby weight.  Woohoo!!

I have always had a PASSION for health and fitness.  I had wanted to get my certification to be a fitness instructor for awhile now at this point.  Timing never was right to do so with finishing college, getting my teaching job, getting married, having kids, etc.  Becoming a COACH would finally be my way to help others with their health and fitness.  It would be a way for me to teach and educate people in a different way than I was used to.  It would be a way to leave an impression on someone’s life…even if it were just ONE person….the way one was left on mine.  I wanted to HELP people…particularly women…see the value and importance of making taking care of themselves first a priority in their life.  I wanted moms to see that loving and taking care of themselves would help them be a better mom.  I wanted to empower women to see the possibilities in them with hard work, perseverance, and passion.  This was my way IN!  This was how I turned my PASSION for health and fitness into a BUSINESS!  One that I just wanted to start out for fun!!

Coaching has become so much more than I ever could have imagined!!  What started out as something for fun…something on the side…a hobby….has turned into a full-time career!  I am able to work from home and be with my two beautiful children.  I’m able to still teach and educate every single day.  I have an AMAZING team of coaches!  Team Fit & Focused is a group of individuals who have come together for a common cause…to help people live HEALTHY and FULFILLING lives.  There is not a day that goes by when I am not extremely PROUD of these coaches and what we work towards every day!

Beachbody’s New Leader Conference

For the second year in a row, Beachbody held a New Leader Conference (otherwise known as the NLC) for up and coming leaders in the company.  You had to be a new 2-Star Diamond or above coach and receive a certain amount of elite points.  These points come from helping your coaches achieve success.  When I set this goal for myself, I knew there would be a lot of work that went into it to reach before the deadline.  When I officially rank advanced to 2-Star Diamond on New Years Eve, it was an amazing sense of accomplishment.  I was so PROUD of my team.  I was so PROUD of what we had accomplished.  I was so excited to get an exclusive invitation for this conference to learn and grow to become a better leader for our team.  Team Fit & Focused is ready for an amazing year…it could not have started in a better way!


I had the privilege of working towards this goal with two incredible friends and coaches.  Erica and Nicole helped push me to reach this goal and when I didn’t believe in myself, they did.  It was an honor to attend this conference with these two women.  I couldn’t imagine going with anyone else…they made this experience even better.


We arrived at the NLC on Wednesday.  Our only commitment that day was to tour Beachbody Headquarters, so we decided to stay in Santa Monica Wednesday night.  It was my very FIRST time in California, so I was so excited to see the beach and explore with the little extra time we had.  We stayed right by the Pier…it was GORGEOUS!!  When we left Pittsburgh it was 7 degrees.  We were quite spoiled with 60’s and 70’s in CA.


The tour of Beachbody Headquarters was of course INCREDIBLE!  As a coach I know the company’s values are amazing.  You can tell as an employee of Beachbody, you are treated very well and everyone LOVES working there.  We were able to see all the different departments, the gyms, their kitchens (of course stocked with Shakeology 😊), etc.  Being a coach means you are the CEO of your own business….you are an entrepreneur.  But you represent this company…seeing the headquarters just made it all more REAL and of course made me admire what the company has done, does everyday, and continues to work towards even more.



Day 2 was the day we moved to the hotel where the conference was located…the Hyatt Regency in LA.  We were of course spoiled with goodies from Beachbody including a 22 Minute Hard Corps t-shirt, backpack, water bottle, hat and scarf (came in handy to return to the Pittsburgh weather 😁), Energize Performance Line packets, and a blanket.



The first General Session began that afternoon.  It opened up with the CEO of the company, Carl Daikeler.  I always LOVE to hear him speak.  I’ve been fortunate to hear him speak many times, including twice in Pittsburgh.  His message was amazing…he stressed the importance of our focus being to enhance and revolutionize people’s lives.  To NEVER put the financial opportunity first.  To be REAL and AUTHENTIC.  To never leave your heart with this business.  Wealth creation is possible when you solve a problem for someone.  Our primary focus should be to serve others.  To help solve a problem for them.  His message to be RELENTLESS with the intent of creating value in people’s lives spoke to me.  Every time I hear Carl speak, I am reminded of what an incredible company Beachbody is and why I do what I do.

The General Session continued with more representatives from corporate, Jon Congdon (President), Jeff Hill (EVP Global Sales), and Michael Neimand (EVP Network Marketing).  The first General Session closed with 12-Star Elite Coach, Michelle Myers.  She described herself as “Beachbody Old” being in the company since 2008, but there was nothing old about her!  Her presentation was amazing, and she provided us all with some valuable information about leading with service and having a strong work ethic.  Michelle stressed the importance of leading with a sense of purpose and what we stand for, NOT what we sell.  Again, PROUD to be a coach and what we all stand for!

After the first General Session, there was a Welcome Reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks.  We got to mingle with coaches from all over the country, Carl Daikeler, Tony Horton, corporate sales reps, etc.  The atmosphere was awesome….part of it was inside in the bar/lounge area and part of it was outside on the patio.  It was a perfect evening and a perfect first day to the NLC!


Of course the following morning we had no problems getting up bright and early, especially since we were still on Eastern time!!  We got to watch the sunrise from our balcony!!  We also got a chance to workout with Tony Horton and preview his new program, 22 Minute Hard Corps, coming out in March!  It was a killer workout!!  This is going to be a fantastic program.  It was so fun to be one of the first to get a sneak peek!!



Day 3 General Sessions started with the #1 Coach in the network, Melanie Mitro.  Her first presentation was about developing a recruiting culture.  She gave some fabulous information about attracting the right people to your business.  I can’t wait to put into action some of the plans she taught us.  We heard from some more corporate sales reps, Arnauld Nakaha and Doug Moss, the Chief Legal Officer, Jonathan Gelfand, and another Top 10 Coach, #5 Bonnie Engle.  She spoke to us a lot about the success she had in one single year.  She was at the NLC last year as a brand new 2-Star Diamond Coach…basically the same spot I am in.  Bonnie gave some really great advice on how to set your coaches up for success.  Then we heard from corporate sales reps, Jeff Mathewson and Craig Colyar, about the Team Cup coming up next month.  This is a friendly little competition with a group of five coaches to work together to build your businesses and earn some fun prizes along the way!  We broke for lunch on the beautiful patio!  California weather is gorgeous!!

General Session #2 on Day 3 opened up with another presentation from Melanie Mitro.  This time she spoke about Time Management and making the most of your time.  She is a WAHM with two boys almost the same ages as Jordan and Ashlyn.  I could totally relate to her schedule and how she does things.  It was just what I needed to hear as I am still adjusting to working from home.  I LOVE doing it, but it’s been tricky trying to figure out working time, family time, etc.

We heard more from the Senior Director Field Development, Cim Carver, about success through the fundamentals.  I loved his racing references 😊 We got a chance to ask some questions to all three of the top coaches presenting, Michelle, Melanie, and Bonnie, during a Coach Panel.  There were so many awesome takeaways!  Jeff Hill closed out the General Session with a presentation on leadership.  He spoke a lot about taking yourself in the direction you want to go and taking people with you by showing them what to do.  Jeff was so passionate at the end of his presentation he was getting a little choked up.  He closed with the importance of leaving your mark and leaving impressions on people.  Again reminding us that this is a people business where people are always put first.  LOVE.WHAT.I.DO! ❤️

We had another amazing closing dinner!  After dinner we split up into our regions and got to interact with the coaches in our area and the corporate sales reps assigned to our area, Lacy Larson, Jeff Pearson, and Jeff Mathewson.  I’m really excited as a 2-Star Diamond Coach to now have the support from corporate to help grow my business, help my coaches, and grow our team.  We had some fun with a little team building activity!


Oh and the fun DID NOT STOP there!!  Due to Snowstorm Jonas, we got STUCK in CA for an extra day!  We decided to make the best of it with a Hollywood and Beverly Hills Tour and dinner back in Santa Monica!


Overall this was an AMAZING experience!  This event is SO worth qualifying for!!  I feel blessed and honored to have been invited to this New Leader Conference.  Every single time I go to a Beachbody event, I feel motived, even more passionate, and ready to CHANGE SOME LIVES!!  This was by far the BEST event yet!!  The goal of the NLC is to create 2016 Elite Coaches.  The connections I have made, the people I have in my corner, and the positive environment I work in on a daily basis is setting Team Fit & Focused up for a FANTASTIC year!  I cannot wait to take what I have learned from the NLC and help my coaches grow their businesses!



One Amazing Beachbody Weekend

Every quarter Team Beachbody has an event called Super Saturday.  These events are held all across the United States and Canada.  It is a chance for local coaches to get together, hear success stories from coaches, get some training from top coaches and corporate reps, hear about the new products, etc.  We had the privilege of having Carl Daikeler (CEO) and Autumn Calabrese (Celebrity Trainer) come back to Pittsburgh for a repeat Super Friday this past Friday, January 8th.  It’s pretty incredible to hear from the CEO himself about the future of the company and the true intentions of what being a Team Beachbody Coach is all about.  This company continues to grow in order to reach out to the amount of people who truly need our help to live a health and fulfilling life.  And if that wasn’t good enough, Autumn Calabrese really opened up and shared her story and how she got to where she is today.


There are so many things being released in the very NEAR future!!  This includes our newest Shakeology flavor that was JUST released…Cafe Latte.  Many people have been asking about purchasing digital-only access to some of the newer programs with Beachbody.  These “digital-unlocks” are going to be released the end of this month.  Another awesome announcement was that the My Challenge Tracker app is going to be coming out later this month or early next month.  Currently I have online accountability groups through Facebook.  This app will allow me to help my challengers get the results they want even more with some fantastic resources.  It was also announced our 2017 Success Club Trip will be in Punta Cana!  This is a trip to reward coaches for their hard work and dedication to helping people live healthy and fulfilling lives.  I had the privilege of earning a completely free trip to Cancun last year.  This year I will be going on a cruise to Jamaica.  And now next year I already have a trip to look forward to in Punta Cana!  It is quite amazing how this opportunity has led me to so many INCREDIBLE traveling opportunities!  Beachbody is also rewarding those coaches and customers who are dedicated to drinking Shakeology (AKA The Healthiest Meal of the Day) for 12 consecutive months with a custom “I’m a 365er” shaker cup and golden scoop.  This is just a fun way to reward those people making their health a priority!

These LIVE events are always a great way to get Team Fit & Focused together in person.  We work together so much online, but it awesome to meet up face-to-face!  For this particular event, we had some coaches come in from out of town.  It was a “black out” in Pittsburgh, so our new F&F jackets were perfect for the occasion!


With Super Saturday technically being on a Friday, it worked out perfectly to hold a New Years Party for our team at my home the following day.  I really wanted to include our significant others in the action, because they play such an important role as a support system.  I know these women on Team Fit & Focused have busy lives.  But we all have such a passion for helping others.  We make coaching work in our lives.  And in fact, it most definitely enhances the quality of our own lives.


We as coaches have all different backgrounds, completely different fitness levels, different careers, some of us have children, some of us do not.  Some of us love the discount and some of us want to grow a business.  What we all have is passion….passion for life…a passion for being happy….a passion for a bigger purpose….a passion for dreaming big….a passion for not settling….a passion for helping others.  These amazing coaches lift me up.  They make me a better person.  We were all brought together around working on being “fit” and taking care of our health.  This in return helps us to be “focused” on so many aspects of our lives that make us better each day.  That’s what Team Fit & Focused is all about.  Coach Summit in Nashville can’t come soon enough to really get EVERYONE together!! :-)


We would love for you to join us on Team Fit & Focused in 2016!  If you are looking for something bigger…a greater purpose…and surrounding yourself with positive people, this is an amazing way to do just that!  Cheers to 2016!!
