My weekend in Los Angeles at Beachbody Newbie Master Trainer Camp is hard to squeeze into one post- if I did my computer might explode!
To give background to anyone reading this who doesn’t know what the camp was about, I auditioned to become a Beachbody Master Trainer last November and was chosen to begin the Ambassador (Training) program thereafter.
Each day we had an agenda that included lots of development, workouts, and time to bond with fellow trainers who lived all over the country! I wanted to give you guys a peek into such an ACTION-PACKED weekend that was another life-changing part of this journey!
Preview of P90x LIVE format:
I couldn’t have been more excited to get a taste of the new P90X LIVE format! I know G and I have the at-home version, but I wanted to see what the differences were in the group fitness format. I have to say that I absolutely loved the group-ex version of P90x where there are different variations with resistance training including variations with periodization along with AMAZING music! I’ll be headed to DC in May to get certified myself!
Practice for Form and Technique:
Each Beachbody format class is usually a full 8-9 hour day. In that day you learn proper form and technique as well as how to instruct a class. To become a Master Trainer, it is our job to set the example for OTHER INSTRUCTORS so that they can pay that forward TO their classes. So, on Saturday I was able to have about 2 hours of PiYo practice and 2 hours of Insanity practice. I was happy to learn cues and tips to help me not only instruct better but teach someone else to instruct. It didn’t hurt that I got to learn from THE BEST; the format experts from each format themselves!
Time to learn and bond with fellow Ambassadors and Master Trainers:
I met some AMAZING PEOPLE this weekend. Like, truly AMAZING. Have you ever gotten involved in a group and everyone seemed to compete with one another and look out for themselves? I know I have encountered this in life experience before, but these peeps were so different! In each workout we had each others’ back and cheered each other on – in form and technique practice we shared notes and helped remember routines – in breakouts we shared positive reminders to keep us all upbeat and excited. Each person I met, I learned something from and felt we all did that same back and forth all weekend. There was NO competition – just building each other up and I was so blessed to share in that!
I wanted to give takeaways and share my experience – anyone reading this won’t necessarily be looking at it as a way to do the same thing – I never expect us all to have the same journey. MY HOPE is that reading this will spark ACTION in others to FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS and take the time to see what they’re truly good at! WE ALL have a PURPOSE in life and should act on it to DESIGN our ONE PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE!
And you also can make the best friends ever who like to be Shoe-bies on the beach with you!
