It is difficult where to begin when describing the Fitlife Live 2016 event in San Diego, CA on June 25 & 26th.
Oh, the FUN us Coaches had at our private dinner! Watchout!
I arrived in San Diego on the Thursday before the event. Got to the Hard Rock Hotel, in the Gaslamp District, about 3 in the afternoon.
I was able to get my room set up, which included hiding the candy/chip snack tray in the top dresser drawer. $4.00 a candy bar? No way. I am here on a Fitlife transformation trip for goodness sake.
I was able to go and enjoy the weather, about 20 degrees F. cooler than home, at an outdoor seating restaurant. The ocean was just a couple blocks away so the breeze was amazing and almost chilly. After my first flight in a while, a whole fear issue, I thought I deserved a drink. Apparently my travel companion, Siggy, thought so too!
The water in the room was 7-11$, no tha-ank ya-hooo.
I was able to stock my room with water from World Market, only a couple blocks away.
Then I debated in my room whether I should go out and see the nearby sights before it got dark. I am sure glad I went out, because I ran into one of the coaches I watch weekly on TV transforming peoples lives.
As I was heading outside of the hotel I could not help but get my eye caught by The Change Artist himself, Chris Powell!
He was so nice, humble and genuine in person. We had a great, but brief, conversation about my transformation and coaching job switch. Such a refreshing and friendly soul. A great way to start my weekend for sure.

I then crossed over and went up the 100 stairs, yep 100, at the Convention Center.
It was worth it for the view in my opinion. A marina with a great walking/exercise path, that led to shopping and restaurants at Sea Port Village. The other way was the bridge to Coronado Island.
Everyone was active and out enjoying the sunny afternoon. Every time I go I can't get over the temperatures and constant California breeze.
Playing with my new selfie stick!
On Friday I met up with some of the other Fitlife coaches and we did the live membership video call together as a group, which was fun together on video. Then we went to vitalitytap and got green juices and juice shots. Sweet nectar. We then got salads at Tender Greens.
Assistant Director of Coaching, Jill, even posted a Facebook Live Video about it. My first live video on FB!
I got to meet juice guru and Fitlife.TV founder, Drew Canole.
Director of Coaching, Miss Mae Desmond. Such pure energy.
Such great food along the way. Salads, juice and PityaPlus (dragonfruit) bowls, oh my.
A great yoga teacher, Melissa Sujata Smith, had me extremely sore the second day!
Also a HUGE shout out to Vitality Tap in downtown San Diego for providing the delicious "Vitality Greens" green juice for our Guinness Book of World Records event!
Learned to like my first Kombucha - Health-Ade Pomegranate.
I am going to be doing future blogs and videos on what I learned at the event.
I left with such a re-invigoration of self belief.
I honestly could not stop smiling on the trip home, like a big old goof.
Even through Sand Diego airport TSA giving me the full VIP pat down.

We were juicing, enjoying healthy local food, learning how to create and implement a solid morning ritual, plus we got a ton of amazing speakers and health hacks to inspire you to continue moving forward in your journey.
Expert nutritionists, trainers and even holistic doctors. Drew's close friend and biohacking mentor, Kusha Karvandi was there to break the door down on traditional fitness. Kusha really knows his stuff when it comes to neuroscience.

Mike Sherbakov served in the marines and now dedicates his life to helping others live their best lives. He demonstrated how to use nutrition, mindfulness and yoga in your daily life as tools to be a better you.
Doctor Lauren Noel, she’s like an encyclopedia of knowledge. She shared the truth about digestion, your thyroid, your hormones…
