Take it or Leave it!

This past week, I had the honor of attending Beachbody’s very 1st Master Trainer Audition Camp. Since I am already a successful Master Trainer (MT), I was invited to go as a mentor.

It is a very scary and exciting thing to be invited to and it takes a special person to take all of the constructive criticism and use it instead of being offended by it.

There were just about 50 invited guests and they were schooled on the art of public speaking, form and technique, and having that “Wow Factor.” Most were told; their form wasn’t big enough, their voice wasn’t deep enough, their stories weren’t told passionately enough and their socks were low enough (true story)!

Although no one knows how many will be accepted into the MT Family, I was told only about half will make it.

Interestingly enough, there were some that were given great advice on how to fine tune their skills. It was really sad to see them defend their choices instead of just saying, “Thank You.” I mean, even if you don’t completely agree with the advice, appreciate the persons offer to help and maybe try to put some of it to use. After all…if we are not growing, we’re dying!!
