Happy Ten Year Anniversary Beachbody!

Ten years ago today, our very first customer, Hope Putnam, ordered Great Abs Guaranteed to launch what has now become the $400+MM a year leader in finding an end to the trend of obesity.

To celebrate the ten year milestone, we sent this crystal trophy to the employees, investors, friends, and parents who helped us get things off the ground, and got the entire company together to make the occasion with an official announcement this morning.
To add to the excitement, in this week's IMS report, the company which tracks the most aired infomercials of the week, Beachbody had three shows of the top five - a first in our history!
Yet it feels like we're just getting started. We've really just found our momentum, with the Beachbody network redefining healthy peer support, P90X redefining fitness, and Shakeology redefining nutrition.
The last ten years have been exceptionally exciting. But we have a lot of work to do to achieve our potential... Our best is still ahead of us!

Congratulations Carl! Thank you so much for creating this fine company. You sell the only workouts that work for me. I'd be lost without Beachbody.

Alright, I had to send you a comment today. I was watching another "Health Company's" presentation today where their CEO spoke. Their product promotes "health" and he did not look healthy at all! It made me proud (like a proud Mama) to be a part of Beachbody...a place where our CEO is a "Product of the Product". Thank you for your leadership! :)

Congratulations Carl. That's a great accomplishment. I can't believe we will be celebrating our six year anniversary with Beachbody next month. I can't wait to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary with you, and 999,999 other Coaches.

No doubt, ten years is just the beginning! And it keeps getting better and better! Thank you for allowing your customers to come along for the ride...

To Infinity... and Beyond!

Carl,

That is awesome! You, Jon, Tony and the rest of the Beachbody gang have every right to be proud as can be. It's been very impressive to watch the company mature in the hyper-competitive DR market in what has to be the most challenging niche.

I think it's the combination of a superior team, outstanding products and fanatical customers that has created the perfect storm. No flim-flam gadgets or doo-hickeys; perhaps the next P90x infomercial should have one of the big pitchmen going through the transformation?

Congrats! Carl I just had to share this with you, I knew you'd get a kick out of it. It's from one of my customers:

No More Running/Sliding/Crossing on a Machine Like A Mouse

It's official. I am getting rid of my gym membership.

I use to love the gym. But, after getting Turbo Jam it doesn't have the same affect on me anymore. Ever since I started Turbo Jaming I am more flexible..able to move my body in different ways easily, and able to do task that involve strength and moving in diff ways easily.

I refuse to go back to the gym and run for 30 minutes or slide for 30 minutes anymore.

When I went hiking to this waterfall last week in Hawaii I knew Turbo Jaming made that hike much much more easier than if I would have been doing the elliptical slider alone.

I had to use trees to pull myself up over certain rocks, stretch (like lunges) myself to to reach certain foot holds and all types of stuff. The body moving in many directions easily was all a testament to Turbo Jaming. The elliptical would have had me up a creek w/o a paddle.

I am canceling that service TODAY! And buying more Beach Body videos.

Happy Dance
