Have you ever wanted to take a cruise with ALL your friends? Beachbody Coaches all had the chance to do just that by taking over Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas for the first-ever, all Beachbody cruise – and I wanted to be on it to celebrate my success with other top Coaches and work out with my favorite celebrity trainers at sea.
What an amazing trip from the moment I was going through the check in process to the very end. During the check in process I ran into some of my favorite coaches from Connecticut Greg Plasket and Maris LaBlanc who just so happens to be the individual coach I am working with to help tone my skills and grow my business by helping more coaches grow their business by helping more people get healthy and fit.
Not but 30 minutes after running into those friends while checking in I run into one of my Favorite Austinite Coaches Krystal Bland who has an amazing story of overcoming obstacles in her life to now be in the top 2% of all Beachbody Coaches.
Walking around the ship before leaving for our 5 days cruise I was truly amazed at how beautiful this ship was. Being one of the largest ships on the seas I don’t believe I ever saw or experiences everything the ship had to offer. Such as Rock Climbing and pool Surfing or even the theater for the comedy shows. But what I did experience was the most fascinating time my friends who are all reaching for big dreams and living a healthy, fulfilling life.
There were celebrations each night in the promenade that were themed so all of use got to dress up for each. The first night was the Disco Party and OMG what a good time it was. There were 1000’s of us dressed up in Disco garb and danced in the streets of the promenade. Each night was a themed party with a formal and then White party by the pool which was rained out but we all made the best of it by
The next day we docked in Cozumel for a 7 hours. This allowed many of us with the option of taking an island excursion such as ATV Beach Adventure, Catamaran Reef Snorkel, Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins, Cozumel Segway and Beach Combo, Scuba diving, swim with the Dolphins and swimming with the Sting Rays.
I chose the Mayan Jungle Ruins with horse back riding which include an hour on the beach with food and drinks. I truly enjoyed this time as I love horses and wanted to see some Mayan ruins but not the big giant Mayan city since next year Beachbody will be going to Cancun Moon Palace Resort and I will go the Mayan ruins in Mexico on a tour.
What truly was a special moment for me was meeting Autumn Calabrese thecreator of Beachbody’s new fitness program; 21 Day Fix. There was a promotion with Beachbody Coaches to win a photo session with Autumn during the cruise but unfortunately I did not qualify for that and missed my chance to meet her. She’s my #crunchqueen because her 10 minute ab workout is all different types of crunches and I love it. But because I took the horseback riding tour I ran into her on the beach during lunch break and was able to talk with her privately for about 10 minutes on the beach. This definitely was one of the top 5 highlights of the trip for me.
The next day we stopped in the Grand Cayman and were able to take excursions as well. I decided to just go to Tiki Beach and enjoy time with my friends. Oh but I did stop off at Hell, Grand Cayman and send a post card to family members saying that I was in Hell and not sure when I would return. HAHA
So you are probably asking yourself did I gain weight? No I actually lost 1.7 pounds!!!
Since I am still on my P90X3 journey I used the basic exercises each morning from the P90X’s and did my basic Yoga moves to stretch out my sore bones from the rough housing each day and night.
There were also free workouts with Tony Horton, Shaun T and Autumn Calabrese which allowed us to stay committed to all of health and fitness goals.
So with everything I experienced and all that there was to do I truly believe the decision I made 2 years ago to become a coach with Beachbody has changed my life for the better and I could never look back at the struggling life I once lead.
