Hey, how’s it going? So, I just got back from the 2015 Elite Conference and I have to tell you it was AWESOME! Like the song goes, I had the time of my life, my Tae Bo® Fitness life! You definitely have to try and get there next year. I mean, it was three full days of intense, hard physical training – but it was so worth it.
I’ll be honest, even though it was my second year attending the Elite Conference, I was nervous. After all, spending three days learning, training, and working out with the creator of Tae Bo® Fitness, Grand Master Billy Blanks® and his daughter, Master Instructor Shellie Blanks Cimarosti is nerve racking all on its own, but adding some of the best Tae Bo® Fitness Instructors from around the world – yeah it can get to you. Yet, once I got there the atmosphere was just the opposite. Everyone was encouraging each other, helping each other, teaching each other, and most of all supporting one another. It totally brought back the united, team feeling that the Tae Bo® Fitness Family is known for, and I myself, am proud to be part of.
There was an Elite Dinner on Saturday night that everyone, including traveling companions, Billy and his family, Shellie, her husband, and the corporate office staff participated in. It was great to be able to spend time with the instructors and the people who put it all together, in a relaxed, comfortable setting. It really added something special to the relationships we were able to build during the conference.
Oh yeah, the corporate office even had contests for the participating instructors. A first time Elite Instructor from Spring Hill, Tennessee, Kathleen Fuller won ‘BEST FORM’. A third year Elite Instructor from Franklin, Tennessee Sandy Bennett won ‘MOST ENTHUSIASTIC’, and a second year Elite Instructor from Enola, Pennsylvania won ‘MOST IMPROVED’, it was awesome! In fact, I totally recommend taking a class with each of these deserving instructors if the opportunity arises, you will not be disappointed.
I know you couldn’t make it this year, but next year is just around the corner so start focusing now. Trust me, being a part of the Elite Program is an honor you have to experience on your own. The 2015 Elite Conference was definitely one of the best experiences of my life and I owe it all to the number one fitness family, Tae Bo® Fitness! Congratulations to my fellow Elite’s! I look forward to a positive year of growing the Brand and spreading the love of Tae Bo® Fitness around the world!
