Despite the fact that I have been a Beachbody Coach for over a year and half I had never been to a Super Saturday event. One of my resolutions for 2016 was to put Beachbody in my forefront. Why? Because it MAKES ME HAPPY. It's as simple as that. I LOVE helping people. So, I signed up for the Super Saturday event and made the commitment to go. I was going to go even if I had to go by myself but I was lucky to connect with one of my fellow coaches, Kelly, and we went together.
So, what IS a Super Saturday? Super Saturday meetings occur quarterly and the purpose is to get coaches motivated, introduce new products and opportunities, recognize coaches for their success, and even do a workout together. I wanted to make sure that I went to a larger city, Miami, for my first Super Saturday because I knew they would have some awesome speakers. We were lucky enough to meet the Executive Vice President of Network Marketing, Michael Neimand. He was very kind and totally was up for a selfie opportunity!
I was SOOO excited to try out the new Shakeology flavor, Café Latte. We were one of the few Super Saturday sites that actually had the flavor available. Café Latte is being released TODAY and I know it's going to be a home run I'm not a coffee drinker, although I love coffee ice cream, but the taste is authentic. So many of my challengers are coffee drinkers and now they will get the health benefits of Shakeology with their favorite taste. As soon as I got home, I changed all of our family's Shakeology orders over to Café Latte. I knew if I only changed mine they would all end up drinking it anyway!
This new Café Latte flavor still has all of your 70 SuperFoods, vitamins and nutrients, PLUS, you are now getting all of the health benefits of the WHOLE COFFEE FRUIT. Science has revealed that whole coffee fruit has chlorogenic acid, polyphenols and antioxidant properties. WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT?!
Chlorogenic Acid helps REMOVE FREE RADICALS, lowers your chance of diabetes by helping in the metabolism of glucose, PREVENTS cardiovascular disease, helps in the treatment of hypertension and DECREASE in blood pressure.
Polyphenols are abundant micronutrients in our diet, and there is emerging evidence for their role in the prevention of degenerative diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Need I say more? Plus, it's DELICIOUS!
At Super Saturday I also got to listen to the #2 Beachbody Coach in the company (out of over 400,000 coaches!), Amy Silverman, and found her to be so inspirational. One of the quotes that resonated with me was, "in life we are going to reach a fork in the road." Do we take the safe road or the one less traveled? Typically, I would always say safe. It's the way my brain works but lately I've been seeing that the risk is WORTH IT. I know no matter what road I choose God is with me and won't let me down. 2016 is the year of YES!
We also got to hear from fitness trainer, Sagi Kalev, otherwise known as THE BEAST! He created the program Body Beast and most recently worked together with fitness trainer Autumn Calabrese in their new program The Hammer & Chisel. Sagi talked about viewing ourselves as WINNERS not LOSERS. He said, we all have the gift of choice. When you wake up in the morning what do you choose? Do you choose to be happy and positive or sad and negative about your day?
Sagi said there are THREE things he does every day and I want to try and do the same:
1. LEARN something new every day
2. HELP one person you don't know each day
3. TEACH one person a new thing each day.
Imagine if we all did that? After his motivating speech the room was cleared out for the workout space. Sagi lead the entire room of coaches into a BEAST of a workout. My FAVORITE part about Beachbody is that it is for ALL ages and ANY fitness level. Look at the photo below and you'll see!
I know now what the fuss is about when it comes to Super Saturday. I will be sure to be at the next ones going forward. You can't help but feel inspired and KNOW you're doing the right thing in helping others after a day like this.
