Beachbody Success Club Trip 2017: Hard Rock Punta Cana

Guysssssss, I’ve been so MIA last month and I’m so sorry for that, but I know y’all will understand when I tell you all of the incredible things that have been going on in my life in the last month! Nick & I just got home over the weekend from an incredible 3 weeks in Punta Cana! Yeaaaaah, 3 weeks in paradise…y’all understand my absence for the last month now, right?! I figured ya would! Not much food blogging to be done when I haven’t exactly been cooking my own food for a bit!

We started off at the Excellence Punta Cana resort for our WEDDING! Oh my God, it was absolutely PERFECT! We had just our immediate family there and it was so relaxed and beautiful! So then we had our honeymoon there and thennnnnn, we got to spend 5 extra days in paradise at the Hard Rock Resort & Casino thanks to Beachbody!

Let me rewind a bit…back in January 2016, I was invited to the 2017 annual Beachbody Success Club trip after only being a Coach for 8 months! Whattttt?! I was so blown away and ridiculously excited that all of my hard work was being noticed by Beachbody! I may have jumped up and down a lot and done a ridiculous amount of excited screaming…and Nick mayyyy have thought I was a bit crazy. But guyssss, I was blown away and so excited that I was going to be able to take Nick on a vacation (a SECOND vacation at that, since at the time I qualified for this Success Club trip, I was already in the midst of planning a surprise vacation to Austin, TX that I was paying for with my money from Coaching as well!). 2 trips within 6 months of each other. Like, I could hardly contain how excited I was and I seriously just sat there and happy cried for at least a solid hour.

See, in the past, Nick has always paid for EVERY vacation that we went on. Then I started Coaching in May of 2015…in October of 2015, Nick & I went on a Caribbean cruise, and we were able to split the cost of that trip because I had made plenty of extra money from Coaching! Then, in December 2015/January of 2016, I realized that I was making enough to be able to afford to take him on a full vacation. But I wanted it to be a surprise, so I secretly planned out our trip to Austin! Thennnnn, to qualify for an all-inclusive trip to Punta Cana for the Success Club 2017 trip as well? Well, that was just out of this freaking world! So that all happened on January…then in May, Nick kind of did a thing and PROPOSEDDDD! He & I had already known that we wanted to do a very small destination wedding, so the timing was absolutely perfect and we figured, since we’re already going to be in Punta Cana, we might as well go for it and get marrieddd while we were there!

So basically, I have Beachbody to thank for both our wedding location and for extending our Honeymoon for an extra 5 days! So I’m not gonna talk anymore about our wedding/honeymoon, but I DO want to focus on the Beachbody portion of the trip at the Hard Rock Resort & Casino in Punta Cana.


You guys, it was insaneeee! Like, I’ve never been so spoiled before in my whole entire life and I can’t believe that this 5 day freaking celebration was earned by helping people reach their health & fitness goals! I earned it by sharing my own journey and inspiring others…like, I cannot even begin to explain how crazy AMAZING that is to me!

Everything from our incredible room, to the dancing at the Welcome Reception, to working out with Autumn Calabrese & Chris Downings, FREE Shakeology every morning, soooo much delicious food (definitely not all healthy though haha), relaxing on the beach in our private cabana and by the pool with all the other Coaches, to meeting Autumn Calabrese on the beach and an insaneeeee beach party Farewell Party…Beachbody seriously spoiled us ROTTEN! Like, I’m still not sure how I’m supposed to adjust back into the real world after all of this!

Seriously, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from this crazy Coaching journey of mine, it’s that you should never be afraid to work towards your dreams. Work hard, put in the effort and be GENUINE in your desire to help others (or genuine in your desire to reach whatever it is that you aim for) and you WILL be rewarded for it!
