2011 BB Summit-Day 2

June 17, 2011 –

First and foremost I want to give a shout out to my son John who turns 7 today. I love you buddy and I appreciate you understanding that we are apart today. It is hard to believe I now have a 9, 7, and 5 year old. Wow.

Today was such an unbelievable amount of information. There is no way that I could blog about everything because I would have to pull an all nighter and even that may not be enough time. However, I videotaped almost everything. So over the next week I will start uploading those up to YouTube. Some major announcements that I will quickly hit upon.

1) The new Shakeology flavor has been announced! If you saw the “Guess the flavor contest”, there was a choice between Vanilla, Citrus, Tropical, or Berry Medley. And the new flavor is…..drumroll….TROPICAL! Unfortunately, it will not be ready for resale until the end of the year as it is going through it’s longevity testing now. Longetivity testing is essentially accelerated shelf-life testing and the testing process takes time. As Carl said, “Shakeology makes you regular, but we don’t want it making you regular because it went rancid!” LOL!

Here is the trailer for the new Shakeology Tropical!

2) A new program with a new instructor will be coming out in 1Q12. It has been developed by Dr. MarkĀ  Cheng of Shakeology fame (see his article HERE) and will be based on the art of Tai Chi. Dr. Cheng came out to demonstrate many of the moves.

3) P90X2 will be out “in time for holiday.” I get the sense this will be a mid to late 4Q11 product.There will be much more on P90X2 coming this Sunday, so stay tuned.

4) There will be a new P90X Application. However, it is only for iPhone. Boooo! I am sure it is only a matter of time before it comes over to Android as it is the most popular mobile OS in the U.S.. Unfortunately, Carl asked us not to videotape the promo video as the application developer would like to unveil it when it is ready. It tracks workouts, WOWY, nutrition, and they even reshot the videos so you can see it better outside. The full videos will be available (for a fee).

5) For all of those customers anxious to be coaches outside of the U.S., Carl gave an update to the team. Canada is making progress, although slower than anyone wants. There is no definitive timeline! They will be targeting Canada and Mexico and other countries as well. He emphasized that getting the Beachbody en espanol up and running in the US is critical to Mexico’s success.

6) The 2012 Summit will be held at the MGM in Las Vegas on June 22, 2012. Registration opens today! These summit’s rock, so everyone should plan on going! It is a GREAT time. You can register HERE! Here is the video they used to announce the location!

7) In other miscellaneous news, I heard both Debbie Seibers and Brett Hoebel will be creating new workouts as well.

Outside of the main session, we had two Game Plan Events. I attended one with Mark Briggs and Traci Morrow and another with MJ Durkin who I have never seen in person, but have some of his CDs / DVDs.

The new product news was great and working out with Debbie Seibers in the morning was great. But I came to work out with my main man Tony. This was the highlight for me. He did a P.A.P. workout. (Don’t know what P.A.P. is? Checkout my 1-on-1, Vol3 review of P.A.P. HERE). I will write a blog on the sequence he did, but we did (3) Complexes: Upper, Middle, and Lower followed by a Bonus Round. A 75 minute workout in all. It was hard and I was sweating like a maniac. Nothing like Tony Horton walking around to make you push harder and focus on your form.

Below is a short slideshow of the day with Joe Satriani helping you feel the energy from the day!

It was a great day and you will see more about it throughout next week! Now, some shut eye to get ready for Day 3!
