Spring Coach Retreat Recap

Are you wondering what all my posts on social media were this past week talking about a Coach
Retreat with the #iamteambeachbody or #beapineapple hashtags.

Or are you already a Beachbody Coach want to host a retreat for your own team?

I’ve pulled together some thoughts from the Spring Coach Retreat I co-hosted this past weekend and thought how this post can benefit 1) the woman watching and curious about what I do as a Coach or 2) another Beachbody Coach looking for ideas to plan her own retreat.

So, a little bit about my team and me. I lead Team SoulFit which and am also a part of Team Take Heart. As coaches, we lead online fitness and nutrition groups that we call Challenge Groups. We support others with motivation and encouraging accountability. We workout, provide nutritional guidance, and many of us incorporate faith in our healthy lifestyles. God has placed some awesome friends in my life because of the coaching opportunity, and I love sharing about it with others!

Coming off a successful retreat at the beach last October, my friend Rachel and I decided to co-host a spring retreat to keep the momentum going for our teams. Coaches on our teams are located all over the place, so connecting in person a few times a year strengthens an already special bond. We have tons of fun and recharge. We love to pour into others, so recharging is important!

We laughed, we shared our personal stories that led us to coaching, shed some tears (the good kind!), shared ideas on how we support our challengers and lead our online challenge groups, get our workout on, and just hung out!

Here are the details of when and how we did all that!

Friday Night - Party like a Pineapple
This was travel day for most, so we kept it casual but with purpose. We enjoyed hors’douvres, gave lots of welcome hugs, and chatted for a while.

You’ve seen the quote “Be a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside” is so trendy right now. We took this trendy quote and put scripture to it! It became something so much bigger for our teams. (Retreat Tip: Go with a trendy theme because there will be so many cute ideas for décor, designs, and gifts. Find one that you can relate to and make it your own!).

Applying scripture reminds us of our bigger purpose as we seek to live out our faith and coaching missions!
(Stand Tall) The integrity of the upright guides them, but the perversity of the treacherous destroys them. – Proverbs 11:3

(Wear a Crown) You will be a glorious crown in the LORD's hand, and a royal diadem in the palm of your God. – Isaiah 62:3

(Be Sweat on the Inside) Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. – Colossians 4:6

Everyone received a darling pineapple necklace and cute notebook to jot down verses, creative ideas to share in our challenge groups, and thoughts to keep us focused on why we do what we do! Rachel did a fab job picking out these gifts! (Retreat Tip: Find inexpensive gifts on Etsy, Hobby Lobby, or other stores. The sooner you begin looking for these items, the more likely you are to find just the right gift without spending too much!)

Saturday – Workout, Training, and Girls Glam Night Out!
We woke up and knocked out that morning workout with Insanity Max 30 Sweat Intervals!

Next up, training. Something I absolutely love about coaching is there is so much personal development and growth opportunities. These are the topics we covered:
1) Confidence; 2) How to Genuinely Connect with and Help Others; 3) How to Share our Stories; 4) Tips for Posting on Social Media; 5) What is the Benefit of Rank Advancement
(Retreat Tip: Choose training topics that everyone can relate to and encourage growth!)

Saturday food during the day included Shakeology for breakfast and an amazingly delicious salad bar lunch.
(Retreat Tip: Don’t overcomplicate food and have healthy options that appeal to everyone, including vegetarians.)

After a jam packed day, we got glammed up for dinner at a cute bistro in a historic district near my home. Sometimes, it’s nice to trade those cute workout tanks and leggings for a little fancy hair and shoes!

Sunday Morning
We enjoyed coffee, huddled around the kitchen table, and talked about how excited we were to go back and share what all we had gained from the weekend!

If you’re thinking this sounds like your kind of women’s retreat or anything about what I do as a Coach interests you, let me know! There is an application below that you can reach out to me and share about yourself! I am accepting new Coaches on my team – Team SoulFit. I would love to get to know you and maybe hang out together at the next Coach Retreat!

We are also hosting a Coach Sneak Peak on Wednesday, April 26th, if you want to know more about what we do as Coaches! I will share how I became a Coach and how this opportunity can be such a blessing in so many ways!
