Game Planning for Canada

Team Beachbody is officially Canada bound on August 28th, but will you be ready to maximize the historic launch? Have no fear, leaders; we’ve brought in the man with your game plan, Senior Director, Regional Sales, Arnauld Nakaha. First-time opportunities. World-class possibilities. Arnauld’s here to break down all facets of this new and exciting ‘global’ business.    

Q. Why did we decide to open in Canada, Arnauld?
A.
For starters, Canadians love our fitness brands! We’ve had a retail and infomercial presence there for a long time so it feels like a natural fit. And, aside from being close geographically, Canadians have been eager to embrace the business opportunity. They’re already off to a great start, building a strong network of 14,000 Coaches. Finally, we share a common bond with our neighbors to the north: the fight against obesity.

Q.What changes can our Canadian Coaches expect?
A.
Here’s a snapshot of what our Coaches in Canada can expect to see:

  • Legitimate and protected business recognized by the Canadian government
  • Canadian Coaches will have access to their own shopping cart
  • Pricing will now be in Canadian dollars (CAD)
  • Canadian Coaches will be able to receive EFT/direct deposit
  • Increasing support will be given to our French Coaches, including great training and marketing tools
  • More training events will be held as cities and markets grow (three upcoming launch meetings will be held in Vancouver, Toronto and Winnipeg)

Q. What can Coaches expect at the events with Tony Horton and Autumn Calabrese?
A.
The upcoming events in Vancouver (Sat, August 16th with Autumn Calabrese), Toronto (Sat, August 23rd with Tony Horton ) and Winnipeg (Sat, September 6th with Autumn Calabrese) will be power-packed from start to finish. First and foremost, Coaches can expect a Q & A session, photo opps, not to mention LIVE workouts with Autumn and Tony. They’ll also get to hear powerful transformation stories and Coach success stories. What’s more, Coaches can network and share best practices with hundreds of other successful Coaches. Why wouldn’t anyone want to take advantage of this awesome opportunity?  

Q. Why should leaders start thinking about the Canada launch NOW?
A.
We’re currently at 14,000 Coaches in Canada. That means we haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s possible. What will your organization look like when we reach 100,000 in Canada? Get busy now—there are lots of lives to change! 

Q. Where can Coaches go to get all the latest information on Canada?
A. Our FAQ’s have the best and most comprehensive information when it comes to all things Canada (Canada Launch FAQ 9970.) Plus, after we launch, Coaches will have access to a link in the Coach Online office with a translation of French documents. And last but definitely not least, check out our recent webinar recording at //youtu.be/2kmenD__sLU. It will explain everything Coaches need to know about this enormously exciting opportunity! 

Q. Any advice for our Leaders before you go, Arnauld?
A.
Set your goals now for the rest of 2014. First, create an action plan for the remainder of the year and be clear on what it will take to get there. Next, remember to invite, invite, invite—every day. Don’t forget to run a Challenge Group every month, too. You should also make it a must to get to all Launch events and Super Saturdays. Finally, shoot for Success Club 10. And, as always, don’t ever be afraid to dream BIG!

Summit 2015

Big news was revealed on the Summit stage last week: we’re leaving Las Vegas and on our way to Music City, USA—Nashville, Tennessee!

You thought Summit 2014 was off the charts. Well, it was. But next year’s event will be even cooler. New city. New venue. Not to mention tons of new, business-building opportunities.

July 16-19, 2015, may be nearly a year away, but that won’t stop the enthusiasm and excitement from mounting.

Heading for the heartland
Why is Summit changing scenery after three memorable years in the desert?

“Las Vegas has been fantastic, but we felt it was time for a change,” says SVP, Global Sales, Jeff Hill. “Nashville is going to offer a fresh flavor and personality that our Coaches are going to fall in love with.”

Vice President, Beachbody® Global Events, Kelli Gilbert says that the shift eastward means an opportunity to reach out to scores of new people. “We’re so excited to move to a more central location in the country,” she explains. “Hopefully this move will open up Summit to a brand new Coach population.”

Kelli continues, “The change in venue allows us to re-imagine all the things that make Coach Summit so great!”

Get to know Nashville
One of the most iconic cities in the U.S., Nashville is home to the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry—and now, Summit 2015.

Sure, country music is alive and well in Nashville. But if you think this city is all cowboy hats and honky-tonks, you’d be mistaken.

It’s a well known fact that Nashville has evolved into one of the best overall entertainment destinations in the country.

Here are a few fun facts about Nashville you probably didn’t know:

  • Nashville was founded on Christmas Eve 1779.
  • In 1941, Nashville was granted the first FM radio license in the United States.
  • Elvis recorded more than 200 of his songs at RCA’s historic Studio B on Music Row in downtown Nashville.
  • The Grand Ole Opry is the world’s longest-running, live music radio show, broadcasting every week since 1925.

What else can you expect? Friendly people. Historic bars. Legendary southern food. Not to mention a city that’s known for being easy to navigate.

And how about the new Summit venue, you ask?

Center of the action
You’re in luck, Coaches; all the liveliest action in town is centered right where Summit will be taking place: the Bridgestone Arena and Music City Center.

You’ll be enamored with Summit’s new home. This state-of-the-art convention center is also one of the nation’s highly-acclaimed entertainment and sports venues. In fact, performing at Bridgestone earlier this year were pop music superstars Paul McCartney, Cher, Justin Timberlake, and Katy Perry.

And let’s not forget about the music from the scores of street musicians who decorate the Nashville nightlife. “The entire town is overflowing with music and great energy,” says Kelli. “Coaches are going to love that they can just walk out of the hotel and be at countless different venues with every type of live music you can imagine.”

In other words, expect the unexpected and a true, one-of-a-kind experience.

A Team Beachbody hit!
It’s easy to see why Nashville is going to be a hit, but let’s not forget about the best reason of all to put Summit 2015 on your must-do list: success!

It’s true; each year the world-class training and life-changing opportunities at Summit just seem to get better and better.  

So what are you and your Team waiting for? Start planning now for Summit 2015.

Oh Canada!

The latest chapter in Beachbody®‘s storied history is about to be written.

This August, we’re proudly making the leap into the home of hockey, the maple leaf, and Niagra Falls—Canada. And our highly anticipated global expansion equals golden opportunities for you and your Team.

In other words, you have the chance to be part of something BIG!

Why is Team Beachbody venturing north? What does this historic moment mean for your business? How can you best prepare? Read on as we tackle these burning questions and give you a crash course on our Canada takeover.

Going global
Excitement is everywhere as Coaches can now take advantage of Beachbody’s first step into being a truly global company.

“This is a new market that still remains very much untapped,” says Senior Director, Regional Sales, Arnauld Nakaha. “It’s a great time to grow our foundation of U.S. Coaches, but also expand into a new territory with unlimited potential for growth.”

Arnauld touches on the reason why Canada was on Beachbody’s international radar. “We already have a retail and small infomercial presence there and Canadians love our brands,” he explains. “And outside of being geographically close, we also share a common bond: the fight against obesity.”

Our Coaches up north
This important launch means big things for Coaches everywhere, but there’s one group that will be impacted the most: our Coach base living in Canada who have been participating in our U.S Coach opportunity.

5 Star Diamond, Miguel Carrasco, who lives in Manitoba, describes what the launch means to our neighbors from the north. “It’s a statement that Canada has arrived!” he says with obvious pride. “I’ve been trying to grow a strong Team of leaders to get ready for the launch. Now it’s time to get out there and get serious!”


Here’s a snapshot of the changes our Coaches in Canada can expect to see:

  • Canadian Coaches will have access to their own shopping cart
  • Pricing will now be in Canadian dollars
  • Canadian Coaches can receive EFT
  • Increasing support will be given to our French Coaches
  • More training events will be held as cities and markets grow

Miguel sums up the enormous benefits for our Canadian Coaches. “Having key events take place in Canada is fantastic because it will attract so many people and teach them what Beachbody is all about,” he says. “And direct deposit will allow Coaches to take the business more seriously as a sole source of income.”

Prepare for the possibilities
When contemplating how you will prepare for the launch, first think about the math.

Canada is home to almost 35 million people. (That’s a little less than the population of California, but much more spread out). That’s a huge number of new people to help get healthy and fit.

Miguel provides some specific ways you can prepare for the launch. “First, find Coaches in Canada that are willing to be pioneers and willing to help lay the foundation,” he says. “Then learn more about the Canadian culture, how they think, as well as the obesity trend in Canada.”

Miguel goes on, “You need to get fully engaged now so you can take advantage of this incredible opportunity. You need to be ready to grow as the country grows.”

Arnauld chimes in with more solid advice. “Continue to set goals, run Challenge Groups, and spread the message of health and fitness,” he says. “The launch will help you expedite those results if you’ve built a strong Team to go to market with.”

Questions, anyone?
If you have questions about the Canada launch, have no fear. Communications will be sent out in advance and helpful FAQs will also be available. And, as always, your trusted Coach Relations team will be ready to assist you as well.

So open up your mind up to the myriad of new opportunities the Canada launch will bring. After all, when the Beachbody world gets bigger—so does your business!

THE POWER OF PIYO®

At Summit 2014 Beachbody unveiled PiYo®, the much-anticipated fitness innovation from celebrity trainer, Chalene Johnson.

And this time, she’s completely outdone herself.

PiYo has the whole Team Beachbody® family buzzing with excitement. And for good reason. Read on for some helpful nuggets of knowledge that will have you talking PiYo with confidence—and powering up your success!

What is PiYo?
For starters, PiYo is a low-impact, high-intensity program that fuses elements of yoga and Pilates to get you ultra-lean and intensely-defined.

But if you think you can yawn your way through it, think again.

To keep it challenging and fun, Chalene cranked up the pace so you get full-throttle cardio while sculpting every inch of your body. You’ll be in constant motion, using your own bodyweight to perform targeted moves for a leaner, stronger, and more flexible physique.

Here are a few of the many benefits you’ll get from PiYo:

  • Sweat, stretch, and strengthen—in each workout!
  • Use your body to shape your body. No weights needed!
  • Burn crazy calories without high-impact, joint-straining cardio.

And while many recognize the importance of integrating flexibility training into their workout routine, few have the time or luxury to jump from their favorite cardio class to yoga or Pilates.

For the time-challenged Chalene, it was this simple need that sparked the idea for PiYo. “I was doing yoga, but still felt like I needed to stretch certain areas, do more cardio, and lift more weights,” she explains. “So I started to think, ‘how can I get more flexible and develop strength and cardio?’”

The solution was PiYo—and boy does it deliver! But enough from us; let’s hear what our Elite Coach Test Group had to say about the program.

Putting PiYo to the test

“I had no idea how high my heart rate would get while doing PiYo. I thought it was going to be boring and that I would lose cardiovascular strength, but I’ve been challenged every single workout.”
– 9 Star Diamond Coach Michelle Myers

“I’ve seen drastic changes and lost inches all over. I didn’t expect a low-impact workout to have such radical results.”
– 8 Star Diamond Coach Lindsey Catarino

“PiYo really impressed me. I actually had to stop and modify after having done INSANITY® and FOCUS T25®. It’s amazing that you can get this kind of intensity from a Pilates and yoga fusion.”
– 5 Star Diamond Coach Ryan Chapman

“PiYo’s a lot harder than I expected and it gets harder as you progress. It’s definitely not just for chicks.”
– 7 Star Diamond Greg Plaskett

And the best part? All this incredibly positive feedback will make talking about the program easier than child’s pose.

Flexibility for your body—and your business
One of the greatest things about PiYo is that it turns every person you talk to into a potential customer.

When talking to prospects, begin with a need—just like Chalene did—and you’ll discover that it’s the ultimate problem-solver.

Total beginners can benefit big time. For example, right alongside Chalene, there’s a modifier performing a more doable version of the moves for those just getting started. They can watch her alignment from the side (a Beachbody first!) making it a breeze to nail proper form.

If your customers are feeling a little more extreme, they’re in for a treat. The cranked-up cardio and body-resistance training in PiYo can help improve athletic performance, cardiovascular strength, and stamina—without putting additional pressure on the joints. No weights. No jumps. Period.

And for those with aches and pains who want to rest their joints from high-impact workouts, PiYo is the perfect solution.

Former college athlete and 5 Star Diamond Coach, Patrick Riehlman, shed some light on the subject. “I always said that my body was held together by scotch tape,” he jokes. “But after doing PiYo, I haven’t had any of the pain and issues I’ve been dealing with since I played college lacrosse.”

But the true power of PiYo is that it solves many needs for many people, making it one of the strongest tools in your arsenal.

So go on, get out there and spread the word about PiYo. It’s one program you and your customers simply can’t afford to miss.

And don’t forget! The PiYo Challenge Pack is available NOW through the end of July for just $140 (normally $160).

Three Days to Results!

Get ready to get lean and clean, Coaches!

The 3-Day Refresh is officially all the rage in the Beachbody® universe. Conceived by Isabelle Daikeler and the Beachbody Research & Development team, the program is a healthier, more nutritious alternative to all-liquid fasts and juice cleanses.

But unlike liquid fasts that can be high in sugar and calories, this program is loaded with protein, fiber, and real food that you can chew!

And here’s something else to chew on: You’ll have a HUGE opportunity to start fast with the 3-Day Refresh Challenge Pack promotion. Through the end of July, the price of the packs will dip to $140. That’s a savings of $70 if you or your customers were to buy each item separately.

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and put the 3-Day Refresh under the microscope.

What a difference three days can make*
3-Day Refresh is a simple, three-day program which offers customers a break from poor eating habits.

It will immediately have your customers feeling cleaner, lighter, and healthier—without starving them. Quick weight loss. Improved regularity. Revitalizing energy. It’s truly the fast track to good health.

You couldn’t ask for a more manageable time frame either. After all, we’re talking about three days. 72 hours. One weekend. Who can’t commit to that?

Who’s the target audience? Try everyone.

The Refresh is ideal for anyone looking to kickstart weight loss. It’s also great for those who want to undo the damage of a holiday weekend or recent binge. And there are also those who will simply use the program once a month to maintain their weight.

Digest the details*
Say hello to a simple, low-calorie, clean eating program consisting of specially formulated shakes.

It’s incredibly easy to follow. There’s Shakeology® for breakfast (customers can select any flavor), and two additional high-protein shakes at lunch and dinner. The program also comes with a selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, and a digestive/fiber drink.

Sr. Brand Manager, Shakeology and Supplements, Nancy Marcello, is excited about the possibilities for Coaches. “The Refresh offers a superior nutritional solution and will also serve as an easy door-opener for purchases of Shakeology and the Ultimate Reset.”

And for anyone wondering about the difference between the 3-Day Refresh and using Shakeology as a cleanse 3X per day?

Shakeology provides a great nutrition-packed shake, but was not intended to be a detox program or used more than once or twice per day to supplement a healthy diet. The 3-Day Refresh is an even more targeted solution designed to deliver whole food nutrition to the vital organs. It helps the body burn fat, not muscle, all while it detoxifies and cleanses. The Refresh also contains real food so you can still exercise and not feel deprived.

Our Coach Advisory Board members were given a sneak peek at the program and shed some light for us. 

Refreshing chatter*
Melissa McAllister used the Refresh to get back on track after putting on a few extra pounds. “I consumed a lot of processed food from eating out,” she explains. “The 3-Day Refresh helped me lose 9 pounds and definitely put the pep back in my step.”

Melissa adds, “If you’re going on vacation and want to get into your swimsuit or want your clothes to fit better, this is the perfect program. I highly encourage people to try it.”

And here’s what some of the people in our test group had to say about the Refresh:

“After just having a baby, losing 2 1/2 inches off my waist is a miracle!”
—Leah G.

“I lost a couple of inches around my waist. My energy skyrocketed. I slept better. WOW!”
—Michael B.

“In 3 days I lost 5.4 pounds, 2 1/2 inches off my waist, and an inch off my hips.”
—Jennifer C.

Give your business a fresh start
You want a door opener that’s sure to work for the masses? This is it. There isn’t anyone who the program won’t appeal to.

Want a winning idea? Set up three-day Challenge Groups using the 3-Day Refresh. It’s a fantastic way to build trust and get your customers quick results.

It’s clear that the 3-Day Refresh will be one of the strongest tools in your arsenal, but there’s one point not to be overlooked: try it first for yourself. Nothing will help you talk about the program with confidence like knowing the benefits firsthand.

So set aside three days to do the Refresh. Your body and your business will thank you!

¡Oh Canadá!

Se está por escribir el último capítulo de la gloriosa historia de Beachbody®.

Nos enorgullece decir que, en agosto, daremos el salto al hogar del hockey, la hoja del arce y las cataratas del Niágara: Canadá. Y nuestra tan esperada expansión mundial significa excelentes oportunidades para ti y tu Equipo.

En otras palabras, tienes la oportunidad de ser parte de algo GRANDE.

¿Por qué Team Beachbody se aventura hacia el norte? ¿Qué significa este momento histórico para tu negocio? ¿Cuál es la mejor manera para prepararse? Sigue leyendo mientras abordamos estas cuestiones candentes y te damos un curso acelerado sobre nuestra llegada a Canadá.

Expansión mundial
La emoción inunda cada lugar dado que los Entrenadores ahora pueden obtener ventajas del primer paso que da Beachbody para convertirse en una compañía realmente internacional.

“Este es un nuevo mercado que aún sigue siendo demasiado desaprovechado”, comenta el Director Principal de Ventas Regionales, Arnauld Nakaha. “Es un momento estupendo para ampliar nuestra base de Entrenadores estadounidenses, pero también para expandirnos a un nuevo territorio con posibilidades ilimitadas de crecimiento”.

Arnauld menciona la razón por la que Canadá estaba en el radar internacional de Beachbody.
“Ya teníamos allí una presencia minorista y en forma de pequeños infomerciales, y los canadienses aman nuestras marcas”, explica. “Además, independientemente de ser países limítrofes, también compartimos una causa en común: la lucha contra la obesidad”.

Nuestros Entrenadores del norte
Este importante lanzamiento significa grandes cosas para todos los Entrenadores, pero hay un grupo que será el más beneficiado: nuestra base de Entrenadores de Canadá.

El Entrenador Diamante 5 Estrellas, Miguel Carrasco, describe lo que el lanzamiento significa para nuestros vecinos del norte. “Es un hecho que Canadá ha llegado”, afirma con evidente orgullo. “He estado tratando de conformar un Equipo sólido de líderes a fin de prepararnos para el lanzamiento. Ahora es tiempo de salir de la casa y trabajar con seriedad”.


Este es un resumen de los cambios que nuestros Entrenadores de Canadá pueden esperar:

  • Los Entrenadores canadienses tendrán acceso a su propio carrito de compras.
  • Los precios, ahora, se expresarán en dólares canadienses.
  • Los Entrenadores canadienses pueden recibir transferencias electrónicas de fondos (EFT).
  • Se les brindará más apoyo a nuestros Entrenadores que hablan en francés.
  • Se realizarán más reuniones de entrenamiento a medida que se sumen otras ciudades y mercados.

Miguel resume los increíbles beneficios para los Entrenadores canadienses. “Tener la posibilidad de celebrar eventos importantes en Canadá es fantástico porque esto atraerá a más personas, a quienes les podremos contar de qué se trata Beachbody”, comenta. “Y el depósito directo les permitirá a los Entrenadores tomar el negocio con más seriedad como única fuente de ingresos”.

Prepararse para las posibilidades

Cuando analices cómo te prepararás para el lanzamiento, primero piensa en las matemáticas. 

Canadá tiene una población de casi 35 millones de personas.
(Es un poco más pequeña que la población de California, pero mucho más dispersa). Hay una enorme cantidad de nuevas personas a las que hay que ayudar a ponerse saludables y en forma.

¿Se puede decir “oportunidades ilimitadas”?

Miguel ofrece algunas maneras específicas de prepararse para el lanzamiento. “
En primer lugar, encuentra Entrenadores de Canadá que estén dispuestos a ser pioneros y a ayudar a sentar las bases”. “Después aprende más sobre la cultura canadiense, su modo de pensar, así como la tendencia de la obesidad en Canadá”.

Miguel continua, “Necesitas estar completamente comprometido ahora, así puedes sacar beneficio de esta increíble oportunidad. Necesitas estar preparado para crecer a medida que el país crece”.

Arnauld aporta más consejos convincentes.
“Sigue estableciendo metas, creando Grupos Reto y difundiendo el mensaje de salud y ejercicio”, afirma. “El lanzamiento te ayudará a acelerar esos resultados si armaste un Equipo sólido con el que salir al mercado”.    

¿Alguien tiene preguntas?
Si tienes preguntas sobre el lanzamiento en Canadá, hazlas sin miedo. Las comunicaciones se enviarán de manera anticipada, además, estarán a disposición útiles Preguntas Más Frecuentes. Y, como siempre, tu equipo confiable del Servicio a Entrenadores también estará listo para asistirte.

Así que ábrete al sinfín de nuevas oportunidades que surgirán con el lanzamiento en Canadá. Después de todo, cuando el mundo de Beachbody crece, también crece tu negocio.

Cumbre 2015

La semana pasada se revelaron importantes noticias sobre el escenario de la Cumbre: abandonamos Las Vegas y nos dirigimos a la ciudad de la música, Nashville, Tennessee, EE.UU.

Pensaste que la Cumbre 2014 fue increíble. Bueno, de hecho lo fue. Pero el evento del próximo año será aún más increíble. Nueva ciudad. Nuevo lugar. Sin mencionar la enorme cantidad de nuevas oportunidades para desarrollar tú negocio.

Es posible que falte casi un año para el 16 al 19 de julio de 2015, pero esto no impedirá que el entusiasmo y la ansiedad sean cada vez mayores.

Rumbo al corazón del país
¿Por qué la Cumbre se traslada después de tres años inolvidables en el desierto?

“Las Vegas fue fantástico, pero sentimos que era hora de un cambio”, afirma Jeff Hill, Vicepresidente Ejecutivo de Ventas Globales. “Nashville aportará una personalidad y un matiz nuevos que enamorarán a nuestros Entrenadores”.

Kelli Gilbert, Vicepresidenta de Eventos Globales de Beachbody®, dice que el cambio hacia el este implica una oportunidad de atraer decenas de nuevas personas. “Estamos muy entusiasmados con el hecho de movernos hacia una región más central del país”, explica. “Esperemos que este desplazamiento acerque la Cumbre a una población de Entrenadores totalmente nueva”.

Kelli continua, “El cambio del lugar de celebración nos permite volver a imaginarnos todas las cosas que convierten a la Cumbre de Entrenadores en un evento increíble”.  

Conozcamos Nashville
Una de las ciudades más tradicionales de los EE.UU., Nashville es el hogar del Museo y Salón de la Fama de la Música Country, el Grand Ole Opry, y ahora la Cumbre 2015.

Seguro, la música country está sana y salva en Nashville. Pero te equivocas si piensas que esta ciudad se trata únicamente de sombreros de vaqueros y de honky tonks.

Es un hecho bien sabido que Nashville se ha convertido en uno de los mejores destinos de entretenimiento completo del país.

A continuación encontrarás algunos datos interesantes sobre Nashville que, probablemente, desconocías:

  • Nashville se fundó en la Nochebuena de 1779.
  • En 1941, Nashville recibió la primera licencia de radio FM en los Estados Unidos.
  • Elvis grabó más de sus 200 canciones en el histórico estudio B de la discográfica RCA en Music Row, en el centro de Nashville.
  • El Grand Ole Opry es el programa de radio de música más antiguo del mundo, que se transmite en vivo todas las semanas desde 1925.

¿Qué más puedes esperar? Personas amables. Bares históricos. Gastronomía sureña legendaria. Sin mencionar que es una ciudad muy fácil de recorrer.

¿Y qué podemos decir del nuevo lugar de la Cumbre, te preguntarás?

Centro de la acción
Son afortunados, Entrenadores. Toda la acción más alegre de la ciudad se centra justo donde se llevará a cabo la Cumbre: en el Bridgestone Arena y el Music City Center.

Te enamorarás del nuevo hogar de la Cumbre. Este moderno centro de convenciones es, también, uno de los lugares de deportes y entretenimientos más altamente elogiado de la nación. De hecho, a principios de este año actuaron en el Bridgestone superestrellas de la música pop, como Paul McCartney, Cher, Justin Timberlake y Katy Perry.

Y no nos olvidemos de la música de decenas de músicos callejeros que decoran la vida nocturna de Nashville. “Toda la ciudad desborda de música y una extraordinaria energía”, afirma Kelli. “A los Entrenadores les encantará poder salir del hotel y visitar innumerables y diferentes lugares donde se toca música en vivo de los tipos más variados que jamás te has imaginado”.

En otras palabras, espera lo inesperado y una experiencia verdadera y única. 

¡Un éxito de Team Beachbody!
Es fácil ver por qué Nashville será un éxito, pero no nos olvidemos el mejor motivo por el que debes incluir la Cumbre 2015 en tu lista de cosas imperdibles: ¡el éxito!

Es verdad. Todos los años, las oportunidades que cambian tu vida y de entrenamiento de prestigio mundial en la Cumbre solo parecen ser cada vez mejores.

¿Qué están esperando tú y tu Equipo? Comienza ya mismo a hacer los planes para asistir a la Cumbre 2015.

Tres días para los resultados

Entrenador, prepárate para lograr un cuerpo esbelto y limpio.

3-Day Refresh es oficialmente lo último en el universo de Beachbody®. El programa 3-Day Refresh, que fue creado por Isabelle Daikeler y el equipo de Investigación y Desarrollo de Beachbody, se desarrolló como una alternativa más saludable y nutritiva que los ayunos de liquido y limpiezas con jugos.

Pero a diferencia de los ayunos con líquido que pueden tener una gran cantidad de azúcar y calorías, este programa está cargado de proteína, fibra y comida real que puedes masticar.

Y aquí tienes algo más para considerar: Tendrás una GRAN oportunidad de empezar rápido con la promoción del Paquete Reto de 3-Day Refresh. Durante todo julio, el precio de los paquetes será de $140. Esto significa un ahorro de $70 si tú o tus Clientes compraran cada artículo por separado.

Vayamos al grano y analicemos en detalle el programa 3-Day Refresh.

Qué diferencia pueden hacer tres días
3-Day Refresh es un programa sencillo de tres días que ofrece a los Clientes una manera de romper con los malos hábitos alimenticios.

Tus Clientes se sentirán al instante más limpios, livianos y saludables sin pasar hambre. Pérdida rápida de peso. Mejor regularidad. Energía revitalizante. Es, en verdad, el camino rápido a la buena salud.

Tampoco podrías pedir un margen de tiempo más razonable. Después de todo, estamos hablando de tres días. 72 horas. Un fin de semana. ¿Quién no se puede comprometer con ese tiempo?

¿Cuál es el público objetivo? Prueba con todos.

El programa Refresh es ideal para toda persona que esté buscando empezar a perder peso. También es magnífico para quienes quieren deshacer los daños de un fin de semana feriado o de haber comido en exceso. Y, además, están aquellos que, simplemente, utilizarán el programa una vez por mes para mantener su peso.      

Digiere los detalles
Dale la bienvenida a un programa de alimentación sencillo, de bajas calorías y de limpieza que consta de licuados especialmente elaborados.

Es muy fácil de seguir. En el desayuno, tomas Shakeology® (los Clientes pueden elegir cualquier sabor) y otros dos licuados con mucha proteína en el almuerzo y la cena. Asimismo al programa lo puedes acompañar con una selección de frutas y vegetales frescos, y una bebida de fibra digestiva.

Nancy Marcello, Gerente de Marca, Shakeology y Suplementos, está muy emocionada con las posibilidades para los Entrenadores. “El programa 3-Day Refresh ofrece una solución nutricional superior y también es excelente para abrir las puertas a las compras de Shakeology y Ultimate Reset”.

Y ¿qué podemos decirles a quienes se pregunten sobre la diferencia de hacer el programa 3-Day Refresh y de tomar Shakeology como limpieza tres veces por día?

Shakeology es un increíble alimento lleno de nutrientes, pero no se creó para desintoxicar. El programa 3-Day Refresh es, sin embargo, una solución aún más específica para aportar una nutrición integral a los órganos vitales. Ayuda al cuerpo a quemar grasa en vez de músculo, mientras lo desintoxica y limpia. El programa 3- Day Refresh contiene, además, comida real, de modo que puedas hacer ejercicio sin sentir que te estás privando de algo.

Los miembros de nuestro Comité Asesor de Entrenadores probaron el programa y nos ofrecieron sus comentarios.

Conversación refrescante
Melissa McAllister utilizó el programa 3-Day Refresh para reencaminarse después de haber subido algunas libras. “Consumía muchísima comida procesada cuando salía a comer”, explica. “3-Day Refresh me ayudó a perder 9 libras y, definitivamente, me devolvió la energía”.

Melissa agrega, “Si estás por irte de vacaciones y quieres usar tu traje de baño o deseas que tu ropa te quede mejor, este es el programa perfecto. Animo a las personas a que lo prueben”.

Y esto es lo que algunas de las personas de nuestro grupo de pruebas dijeron sobre 3-Day Refresh:

“Después de tener a mi bebé, perder 2 ½ pulgadas en la región de la cintura es un milagro”.
         —Leah G.

“Perdí un par de pulgadas en la región de la cintura. Mi energía se disparó. Duermo mejor. ¡INCREÍBLE!”.
         —Michael B.

“En 3 días, perdí 5.4 libras, 2 ½ pulgadas en la cintura y una pulgada en las caderas”.
         —Jennifer C.

Dale a tu negocio una nueva vida
¿Quieres una herramienta que en verdad funciona con las masas? Es esta. No hay nadie que no se sienta atraído por el programa.

¿Quieres una idea ganadora? Organiza Grupos Reto de tres días con el programa 3-Day Refresh. Es una manera fantástica de generar confianza y de que tus Clientes obtengan resultados rápidos.

No cabe duda de que 3-Day Refresh será una de las mejores herramientas de tu arsenal, pero hay algo que no debes pasar por alto: primero pruébalo tú mismo. Nada mejor que conocer los beneficios de antemano para ayudarte a hablar con confianza del programa.

Así que destina tres días para hacer el programa Refresh. Tu cuerpo y tu negocio te lo agradecerán.

La misión detrás del negocio

El Entrenador Diamante 1 Estrella, José Álvarez, no se siente un vendedor, sino un consejero, una persona que enfoca su tiempo en ayudar a otros.

Para él, la red de mercadeo de Beachbody no es solamente una actividad con fines de lucro, es un acto diario de consejería y apoyo a quienes lo necesitan y, eso, es precisamente la misión que ha descubierto detrás del negocio que lo ha llevado al éxito.

Para Álvarez, el saber que con cada paquete reto y cada producto de Beachbody está contribuyendo a mejorar una vida y que al final del día obtiene las ganancias económicas necesarias para tener libertad e independencia, es un sueño hecho realidad.

“Yo no me siento como un vendedor, esta red de mercadeo no es convencional, aquí hay una misión y contamos con los productos, el equipo y el apoyo necesario, así es como me veo dentro de Beachbody”, asegura el Entrenador desde la Isla del Encanto, su tierra natal.

Lo anterior, ha sido la clave para que José Álvarez haya sido reconocido recientemente en la Cumbre de Entrenadores como Entrenador Diamante 1 Estrella, Leyenda del Clúb de Éxito y Leyenda Estelares.

Esa es la mentalidad con la que acaba de renunciar a su trabajo de tiempo completo para enfocarse completamente a su negocio de Beachbody y del que está convencido, obtendrá aún más satisfacciones que las que ya ha obtenido hasta hoy en día.

“Existen todo tipo de miedos antes de enfocarte en el negocio, el primero es la seguridad, yo confío completamente en los productos de Beachbody, lo segundo es el qué dirán, da miedo que los demás piensen que uno lo está dejando todo por convertirse en vendedor, pero es ahí cuando entiendo que no soy ningún vendedor, soy más un consejero y me siento orgulloso de pertenecer a Beachbody”.

Como otros Entrenadores, José comenzó como cliente comprando P90X.

“Me estaba matando haciendo ejercicio en mi casa con montón de aparatos. Hacía ejercicio mañana y noche y no bajaba nada, hasta que finalmente probé el programa y en un mes comencé a ver los resultados que no había obtenido en años. Esa fue mi inspiración”, cuenta.

Siempre soñó con ser independiente, con no estar en una oficina todo el día y poder ver crecer a sus niñas y Beachbody le ofreció precisamente eso.

“Ahora tengo la oportunidad de estar con mi familia y disfrutarla, de ser parte de un equipo muy grande de Entrenadores y de crecer económicamente”, asegura.

Sus satisfacciones como entrenador han sido varias, pero recuerda dos en particular.

“La primera fue cuando me gané un viaje a Las Bahamas, nunca pensé que hubiera podido ir a un viaje así y además conocer ahí a Tony Horton. Él fue quien cambió mi vida con P90X así que la experiencia fue fantástica.

“El segundo fue el día que renuncié a mi trabajo de tiempo completo porque Beachbody me dio la oportunidad de dedicarme a mi pasión”, enfatiza emocionado.

Actualmente, José está enfocado en continuar sus metas mensuales y crecer dándole apoyo y consejería a su equipo, algo que no le cuesta trabajo ya que es parte de ponerse en forma y divertirse en el camino.
