What an incredible weekend!! I earned the amazing opportunity to head to Pittsburgh for a long weekend to spend time with my fellow teammates for lots of learning, bonding and fun times.
We began the weekend (Friday) with a visit to downtown where we all got to chat and have a yummy dinner at the Hard Rock Café. I had a delish veggie burger….yum!! After dinner, we had a big sleepover at our coach’s house.
The next morning (Saturday) when everyone else arrived, we headed to the cabin to get the retreat going. My friend and teammate, Alyssa, rode up to the cabin together and got to chat about coaching, life and our loved ones. The bonding time with these inspirational ladies was a HUGE part of what made this weekend so special. If you’re anything like me, meeting a ton of new people (We just new each other from Facebook and Zoom calls before this) can be a little intimidating, but everyone was so sweet and down-to-earth. Love that!!
We pulled up to the beautiful cabin, found our rooms and got settled. Our coach, Kati, welcomed us to the cabin by giving us adorable gift bags with cute little notes and a pretty notebook to take notes in during the trainings.
We had a hilarious dinner that night…apparently, the grill was a bit old-school so the chicken came out too tough and people forks were breaking and everyone was laughing…it was soooo funny!!! Thankfully the cooking got better and better as the weekend went on. HAHAHA
After dinner we all shared our stories and toasted with champagne. Hearing peoples stories of struggle; hardship, abuse and heartbreak were so heartwarming and encouraging. Everyone there had overcome something or had an incredible journey that brought them to the place they are today. Beachbody has changed so many of our lives….I know it has made a profound change in my life and circumstances. It’s amazing what taking a leap of faith can do!!
My roomie, Jeanette and I, stayed up waaaay late chatting about our businesses and our families.....whew, we sure were sleepy Sunday Morning!! After getting over how tired I was, I got myself all dolled up for my photo shoot. Jeanette took some adorable headshots of me…I CAN NOT wait to share them with you all!!! :-D It was so much fun to get dressed up, pose and do girly stuff….loved it!!
After pictures, we had breakfast and then began some more training. We learned about personality types, how to grow our teams, how to deal with different situations, how to be consistent with our businesses and so much more. My notebook is FULL of new ideas that I am excited to put into place!
Sunday afternoon, we drove up the mountain where the cabin was located to explore, take pictures and just enjoy more time together….we even found a beautiful spot where the property owners host weddings. It was ADORABLE!! Later that evening, we toured the property and then relaxed with some popcorn and chatted until bedtime.
Monday morning, we got all packed up, had breakfast, said goodbyes (So sad to go!!) and then headed to the airport. Wooooow, this trip was seriously a GAME CHANGER!! Motivated me to cultivate a strong team, move my business forward and help people who are like me when I was searching for a change….in my life, my fitness and my goals. I feel so blessed to be part of the Bombshell Dynasty!!!
