I’m a big fan of Beachbody. I can’t really hide that. And of course I wouldn’t want to! I’m super lucky that I’ve had the chance to meet some Beachbody leaders, Super Trainers, and supplement creators in the last year.
I went to a Super Saturday event in Orange County the beginning of 2016 and got to hear the CEO Carl Daikler speak. He’s amazing. He’s so good at getting everyone excited about life. I’ve seen him speak in person before, but this time I got to have a photo op with him. Super cool.
Flash forward to Summit 2016. My friend and teammate Angel and I got to get a quick photo with Tony Horton, OG Beachbody Super Trainer, in the hotel room before Summit really kicked off. Look at that SMIZE! We were super lucky and he was very nice to accommodate us and use his long arm to take the photo.
I chatted up Dr. Nima Alamdari, the Director of Scientific Affairs at Beachbody when I saw him in the halls. I had also met him the previous year when the Beachbody Performance line was launched. I got to talk science stuff with him. And he let me take a photo.
Randomly, on the street, I got to meet Superfood Hunter Darin Olien, one of the co-creators of Shakeology. I’m a big fan of his philosophy of food, and I love his book Superlife. I got a photo with him as well and told him that I was having trouble getting my husband to drink his Shakeology daily. Darin suggested I tie him up and force feed him. He’s really great!
I won an Instagram contest in October and in December, I got an in-home visit from Autumn Calabrese, the Super Trainer who has brought my favorite programs to life, and her brother Bobby Calabrese. Together their cooking show Fixate and the Fixate cookbook has helped change how we eat and approach food. They were honestly just as lovely and wonderful as I could have hoped. We cooked with them, shopped with them and had some great talks about fitness, food, living in California, and everything else.
My last brush with a Beachbody celebrity was Mr. Tony Horton again. He spoke at our local Super Saturday and I got a photo op! Sadly, I couldn’t do his workout because I had an injured shoulder. But he gave a great Q&A and really brought a lot of things into perspective that I was missing. Our photo time was brief, but he called me Sweetheart, and can you really ask for anything else?
One of my wildest dreams is to be Beachbody famous myself. I want to be a top coach, have an incredible result to share, and keep inspiring other people to go for it. I want to talk on the National Wake Up Call, and in front of the crowd at a Super Saturday. Until I’m legit famous, I’ll have out with the elite when I can.
