Summit Fun Recap!

One last post on the Beachbody Summit trip!  We had a blast!

I left on Wednesday, got to LA in the afternoon, met up with my friends:  Tina, Katie, Lisa, Jolene, and Dana.  We went to dinner at Rosa’s and then met up with more friends……  hung out at The Farm for a while.  One thing I noticed about CA, they do NOT want to split up the bill.  I don’t know what is up with that, but it sure makes it inconvenient for us customers (just sayin’)….

Thursday, Day 2 was started off with team training.  We had the best day, learned all about our different behaviour types and how to interact with each other.  I learned that I am an Informal, flows with personality.  After our training, we had recognition.  As a Diamond coach, I received a very nice certificate and my invitation to next year’s Women’s Diamond Retreat in San Diego.

Thursday night was the Success Club Reception.  I had to qualify for Success Club in April and May to go to this party.  It was a blast.  Karoke, dancing, drinks, photos with the trainers and Carl Daikeler (CEO of Beachbody).  After the party, we were starving, so we went to dinner at the hotel.  Low and behold – look who was standing at the bar.

I know the photo is not the greatest, but how could you resist getting a photo of Matthew McConaughey. 

Friday, Day 3, the actual summit meetings started.  Sunrise workouts with Debbie Sierbers, Leandro  Carvalho, or Donna Richardson Joyner.  Shakeology breakfast, and the General Session.  The theme this year is End the Trend.  We learned about all kinds of things:

Team Beachbody won the Rising Star Award from the DSA for 2011.
Obesity costs a family $7500 per year.  AND our children have a shorter life span for the first time.
P90X App is coming – SOON!
Dr. Mark Cheng is coming out with a tai chi workout
More Rev Abs workouts coming soon
21 day detox
New Team Beachbody site features – Wowy facelift , sharing your workouts on facebook, suggested buddies, sharing online groups with facebook
Coach Training Academy
Success Club Challenge
Summit 2012 – Vegas, baby!
The General Session ended with Marlee Matlin.  “Courage plus dreams equals success”

We had lunch and then the breakout sessions – I attended the Prospecting for Success with MJ Durkin and Expanding your Business in the hispanic community.

Another workout session this time choosing from Tony Horton, Shaun T, Chalene Johnson or Brett Hoebel.

Then that night we had the  Diamond Reception held at the Conga Room at LA Live.  This party is for all Diamond and above coaches.  Talk about fun!  Dancing and chatting the whole night.

Day 4 began with a Super Workout with all the trainers!  Nothing like working out with 2500 of your closest friends!  The meetings got started with a talk from Chalene Johnson.  She is a wonderful motivator and has the best energy! “Before you can improve the world, you have to improve who you are” Then we had a speaker, Joe Thomas from Ninety-Five 5.  He was really good!  

We then went to the breakout sessions, I LOVED the Shakeology session with Isabelle Daikeler, Darin Olien and Dr. Bill Wheeler.  This was my favorite session of all.  I learned so much!  Shakeology has 100% of label claim with a 2 year shelf life.  No corners are cut and I love that about this product!!  I then went to the social media training, also good!

Saturday night we had the Dinner Reception and then the Celebration and afterparty.  This was another great night and 2 people were chosen as the body transfomation stories and won $25,000 EACH!!!!  Such amazing stories and it was a good night.  The only drawback for me was I was getting texts from Brian about the storms going through and I was so worried and nervous and actually felt a little guilty for being away.  So, I got over it once I  knew that everything was okay, just power outages and some really STRONG winds!

We danced the night away again, my feet were killing me and I changed out of my fancy dress and shoes and went the comfy route for half the night!

Sunday, Day 5 was the last day.  More info including the P90X2 info!  I am so excited for this workout, 14 new workouts, 5 day workout week plan and a meal plan that includes vegan and vegetarian options as well a paleo. Beachbody has outdone themselves this time!   As sad as I was to see it end, I was also ready to come home!  My head is exploding with TONS of info and so ready for some of these new products to come out!

We spent the evening packing and getting ready to come home, but managed to have time for dinner with friends at Trader Vic’s!



It was a great trip and I can’t wait for the next one!!

So, I have photos to put with this, but I have been messing with this all morning long and no matter what I do, I can’t get them added.  I’ll keep trying.

Discussion:  Have you had any GREAT trips lately?

travelin’ travelin’

I’m headed home today, it has been the craziest, most fun weekend, but I am ready to get home.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a Summit recap!

Check out the NEW P90X2.  This is one I am really looking forward to – pre–orders start in August with a release date in December 2011.

Just in time for your New Year’s Resolutions!!!

I’ll talk to you all when I am back in good ol’ Missouri!

Discussion:  Do you change your workouts with the seasons?

Super high and sup-ah cute!

Getting ready for my trip!  YAY!  I’m getting excited….

Started packing, making the final decisions on my dresses, shoes and the other things I need.

The shoes I’m going to wear with the blue dress are SUPER high.  Brian has been making fun of me because I am wearing them around the house this afternoon. 

I don’t wear heels that often, I am afraid they are going to hurt my feet.  But they are sup-ah cute!  I did pack the band-aids. 🙂

Beachbody Summit is one of the things I look forward to every year! This is my 4th year to attend.  The first one I was stuck in the Dallas airport for the majority of it, but we had a blast and it was so small compared to the last couple of years.  There was only about 100 or so people there that first year, there will be a couple of thousand people here this year.  It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Another thing I am excited about is finding out the NEW Shakeology flavor.  Anxious to see what they have come up with and get to try it!  AND, hoping against ALL HOPE that the VEGAN flavor will be available!!

Working out with the celebrity trainers (Tony Horton, Chalene Johnson, Shaun T, Debbie Siebers, Brett Hoebel and Leandro) is one of the highlights of the trip.  They are all so extrememly nice and willing to pose for photos all night long!

I have my music ready and my books loaded on the kindle for the flight AND how cool is it that I got airfare from JOPLIN!!  It will only take me a few minutes to get to the airport instead of HOURS!  WOOT!

I’m hoping to finish up the new Jillian Michaels book – Unlimited.  I’m  a little meh on it, but I want to finish it.  Then I have a little chick lit, a new personal development book. my new Success magazine and of course my upbeat and fun music playlist. Snacks are taken care of, just need to make shakeology no bake cookies for the plane ride.  Can’t get too hungry on the way!  I’ll probably end up sleeping the whole way there, I’m sure that will happen on the way home.

Discussion:  What are you looking forward to this week?  Reading or listening to anything good?

Be sure to “like” my Feeling Fit with Dana facebook page for updates from the 2011 Beachbody Summit!  You can keep up to date with all the breaking news!

It’s been a good weekend!

Boy, what a weekend.  Brian and I had resigned ourselves to working for the better part of the month to get our houses demolished and moved to the curb.  We have a couple of trips in there, so we were prepared to just work and get it done in whatever time frame we could.  We can’t start rebuilding until August anyway, so there really was no hurry.  BUT, Brian called his good ol’ buddy David and he came to our rescue this weekend.  All the houses are DONE!  I am so thankful to David for his hard work and use of his equipment.

They played and worked like little boys, both of them grinning from ear to ear using the heavy machinery!

Boys and their toys!!!

We cleaned up and had some and family over on Friday night

The boys got back to it on Saturday to help another friend with his house and got it done as well!  Jake and Morgan moved into their apartment and we rented the other house in Joplin.

Went out to dinner on Saturday night and came home and collapsed. 

What a relief to know that this is done and taken care of before we go on our trips!

I leave on Wednesday for the Beachbody Coaches Summit!

My invitation to the Success Club party!

 I’m so excited, getting things ready and making my lists getting ready to start packing!

Still have to get my hair cut, give myself a pedi and make the final decision on my dresses for the parties (3)!! 

We’ve laid pretty low today, David went home this morning and Brian and I decided to take it easy today!  I’ve been reading, the kids came over to swim and now, just hanging out!

It’s been a good weekend!
