This is summer I boarded a plane by myself & flew to Nashville!
I almost didn’t go & nearly cancelled my trip at least a dozen times. Have you ever been that nervous before? When you just do not want to do something because of fear yet you know it would be really good for you?!
As a fitness coach for over a year now, I chat with lots of women on my team from all over the country & Canada online yet I had never met any of them in person! That’s really scary for an introvert like me.
But I went anyway.
After landing in Nashville, I had an Uber driver take me to the house my whole team was staying in. (Love Uber & used it several times a day back & forth to the conference center!)
Oh, I was so nervous to knock on that door! I was going to be spending the next four days with women I barely knew!!
Once I walked in I met two of the girls on my team who seemed just as nervous as I was! After we chatted a little bit & I found my room the nerves started to go away!
On Day 2 I picked up my registration packet, did a little bit of shopping for workout clothes & then worked out with 21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese.
So exciting working out with a thousand people doing a workout that has literally changed my fitness life!
There was so much positive + fun energy in that room!
As you can see – everyone wanted a selfie with Autumn!!
At this point I had met most of the girls in the house & we all got to hang out together! My roommate was Sarah in the front on the right (green tank top). She’s from Michigan & is the sweetest! I really enjoyed getting to know her!
Throughout two full days we went to classes to learn how to be better fitness coaches & how to grow our businesses. I learned a ton & was absorbing everything!
Spending two full days with these three ladies was awesome! I feel like God placed these ladies to be with me for a reason. They were so friendly & am thankful we can keep in touch through Facebook!
It was so exciting to see Gary Vaynerchuk (social media guru), Chalene Johnson, & Sean T speak! They were all inspiring & motivated me to take my business to another level!
In between sessions we didn’t just sit around & talk (although we did A LOT of that too!) but we were checking in with our fitness challenge groups & messaging clients – the BEST part of this job! We can work anywhere as long as there’s WiFi!
The last day was the mega workout in downtown Nashville! Beachbody shuts down the Main Street so 20,000 coaches can work out with the star trainers. In order to get a good spot we would’ve had to get up at 5:00 am & I had barely slept so my new friend Jen (she’s from Seattle just like me!) decided to check it out later that morning.
After seeing how much fun everyone was having I was bummed I hadn’t gotten up earlier to go! The workouts looked amazing & everyone was sweating buckets!
I won’t miss it next year!!
The week wrapped up with our whole team getting together at a restaurant for drinks & appetizers. So much fun chatting with all the girls on my team that could make it to Nashville!
So, after a nerve-racking start I have to say that I’m so glad I went! I’m proud for forcing myself to go. The entire Summit week was awesome in that it was such a positive experience. It confirmed to me that being part of helping other women start their own businesses + helping people on their health/fitness journey is exactly where God wants me.
The conference sessions gave me so many new ideas but THE highlight was connecting with the women on my team. Their positivity, drive, & heart made me feel a part of a community & I can’t wait to see all of them again next summer in New Orleans!!
