Because of the success that I’ve had with the Beachbody Coaching Business, Carl Daikeler, the CEO of Beachbody, flew out to my place and interviewed me for a new 3rd Party Tool that’s going to be available to the coaching network. First of all, before I get into the details, let me just say that we had an AWESOME time! Carl is one of the most down to earth, genuine, most caring people that I have ever met. When he says that his company mission is to “help people achieve their goals and live a healthy, fulfilling life,” he truly means it, and I believe that’s one of the main reasons Beachbody has become so successful as a business.
I’ve met Carl before, but never really have had the chance to sit down and talk with him. I’ve got to know and establish relationships with most of the people high up in Corporate, but Carl has been this mysterious guy that I didn’t know much about. I honestly didn’t know what to expect when he arrived at my place. When most people think of CEO’s of a large corporation, they think arrogant, and even put them on a pedestal, but Carl is completely opposite of that. I’ve never met a person that gives more credit to everyone else more than Carl does. All he talked about the entire time was how the success of the business was because of us coaches and others in Beachbody Corporate. I honestly don’t think that he talked about himself once the entire time he was with us, which was about 6-7 hours, and that says a lot about him. Talk about a true leader! It took someone else to come up and give him some credit about how great of a leader he’s been.
When Carl first arrived, he immediately started cracking jokes and helped everyone relax a bit. We talked until the camera crew arrived, and then it was time to get down to action. First, he interviewed Melinda for about 40 minutes about her transformation and success. There’s a good chance Melinda is going to be in the new infomercial, which we are all excited about! While her interview was taking place, I went and got my make-up done for the two interviews that I was going to be doing on camera. Yeah, I had to get make-up done. Talk about an awkward position to be in! No guy enjoys having make-up put on their face. Anyways, once I was ready to be on camera, my interview started with Chad. I talked a lot about my story and success that I’ve had as a coach, and why this is a great opportunity for anyone to get involved with. I don’t want to go into detail because I’m going to post the DVD on this site once it’s released. After my interview with Chad, Carl came in and him and I had a one on one interview. I talked more about what I’ve done to become so successful in this business in just a few short years, as well as share some of the reasons why I push myself to hard to succeed.
After the interview with Carl was over, I had my local team of coaches come and Carl held a group Q&A session and also talked about Shakeology and the company as a whole. There were some great questions asked and we had a few great conversations going, but when that was over we headed back to my place to eat! We were all starving! Melinda made whole grain spaghetti, healthy pizza enchiladas, and a few coaches brought some covered dishes as well. We just sat and talked with Carl, and he was just like a friend of ours. We all sat on the floor and talked about random things, like dad’s monkey-butt on his head and Leslie’s interesting story about a snake. Carl became part of our group! About an hour later Carl had to get on a plane and head to Michigan for his next stop.
We had an absolutely amazing time with Carl and I’m so glad he got a chance to come to my place and meet my family, friends, and local coaches. He is no longer just the CEO of Beachbody, but is also now a friend of mine. Carl is a great guy and we are very fortunate to have such a passionate, caring, and genuine person leading Beachbody.
