Beachbody Took Over Nashville Coach Summit 2016 RECAP !


Beachbody Superworkout Nashville 2016

Beachbody Superworkout Nashville 2016 with 25,000 Coaches.


Amazing experience. Just got back from the 2016 Team Beachbody Coach Summit in Nashville with 25,000 Coaches to learn more about new, exciting product announcements along with training, networking with Beachbody leadership, reward parties, private Billy idol concert and live workouts with 7 celebrity trainers from Beachbody. This was my 6th Beachbody Coach Summit and it was the best (my first Summit only had around 1,000 in attendance!). Amazing experience in Nashville, although I certainly was short on sleep for several days!


2016 Mike Summit Stadium Recognition

One of my recognitions received for leading a top Beachbody Coach Team on the Nissan Stadium ticker!!


Below I will fire through some highlights including announcements from Coach Summit, videos and pictures from the events. If you would like to join our Team at Coach Summit in New Orleans 2017 next year please message me to learn more and get your ticket reserved before they sell out!


Announcements included…


Country Heat

  • Launch of the new Country Heat program by Autumn Calabrese. This is a cardio dance routine with music inspired by Country genre (more cross-over Country than twang!) I had the opportunity to participate in a private live workout with Autumn for Country Heat (see below) and also have since reviewed all 11 Country Heat workouts with detailed heart rate analysis and comparison to other top Beachbody programs. I am NOT a dancer, enjoy dancing or much of a Country music fan, but I really like this program. It makes fitness much more accessible to those that do not enjoy working out, those with some limitations, and it is FUN. Message me to be considered for my private Country Heat test group!




Core De Force

  • New program coming November 2016, Core De Force with Joel & Jerricho from the previous Beachbody program Les Mills Pump! This is exciting and looks amazing. Core De Force focuses on core rotational movement with martial arts discipline to drive your health and fitness transformation. The workouts consists of 3 minute rounds, much like a fight. Joel & Jerricho are high intensity. This program may have some similarities to Les Mills Combat, which has been phased out due to discontinued relationship with Les Mills. However, it’s different… an explosive mixed martial arts-inspired total body workout designed to blast fat and carve your waist in just 30 days – with no equipment and core rotational synergy! This new fitness and nutrition program features MMA moves and techniques from Muay Thai, kickboxing and boxing that work your core from every angle. If you want to slim down, you are going to have to fight for it! Joel & Jerricho gave us a short sneak peek of some of the moves from Core De Force that I captured in the Beachbody Superworkout video in this blog below. Awesome.

In addition to the announcements and celebration of Team success, Coach Summit also included personal development and business training for the Coaches. CEO Carl Daikeler was inspirational, as always. Chalene Johnson also spoke. My favorites were Shaun T and the keynote speaker, Gary Vaynerchuck. Gary did not swear like normal (for those that follow his success and leadership), but he certainly got his point across that most people do not work hard enough and are not patient to see success (in whatever you are doing in life). SO true. Shaun T’s message aligned with Gary’s, motivating us to take a deep look into our inner self, actions, effort, relationships, etc. to baseline so that we can improve and achieve our goals instead of settling with a landscape painted years ago. Good stuff!

Gary Vaynerchuck Beachbody Summit

Gary Vaynerchuck keynote. Work hard, be patient. Don’t be a jerk. lol.



As expected, the Beachbody Superworkout was AWESOME, like every year. We shut down Broadway Street in Nashville at 6AM Saturday. 7 trainers led 25,000 coaches in a 1+ hour workout. Chalene Johnson, Sagi Kalev, Joel & Jerricho, Shaun T, Tony Horton and Autumn Calabrese. Insane. The workout also included a sneak peek of the new Core De Force program coming in November from Joel & Jerricho. Enjoy some highlights from each trainer in this compilation workout video!




And, I can’t forget one of the coolest parts of Coach Summit this year… a private concert from the legendary Billy Idol and band! I earned this concert based on leadership qualifications and had front row perspective of the action up close and personal. Tony Horton even introduced Billy Idol given the history of Idol references in P90X and Horton programs. Also, as you can see from the video footage below, Billy Idol thanks Tony for his health and fitness over the years. I would say Idol looks great for almost 61 years old in the video and pictures!



Billy Idol Private Concert Summit 2016



A Team Beachbody Coach event would not be complete without spending some time with the leadership and trainers as well as BIG fireworks display to end the celebration evening. The fireworks finale was the biggest I have ever seen in person and it shook the NFL football stadium. Below are a few pics from the parties and video of the fireworks!
