Shakeology. What a funny name. I wonder how the creators of Shakeology came up with the name? Do you know what it is? Had you heard of it before you read the first word of this blog post? I heard of it several years ago, thought it was a protein shake, “Googled” it, found out it was $130 for a bag of 30 servings, closed the website because I wasn’t going to pay $130 for a protein shake when I could get protein shake mix at Wal-Mart for less than $30!
Fast-forward to August 2015…I ended up joining a “Challenge Group” by purchasing a “Challenge Pack,” and a bag of Shakeology came in my pack! When I was talking to the person who became my coach and they told me all that was included in a Challenge Pack, I didn’t think I’d be able to afford it. They said I’d get a complete workout program, 30 days access to Beachbody on Demand (if I wanted to stream my workouts), an eating plan guide, portioned containers for each food group, a 30-day bag of Shakeology (which I already knew was $130 alone), membership to an online accountability group, and daily coaching…surely all of that would be minimum $300, probably more. Before they told me the price of the Challenge Pack, I told them I wasn’t interested in Shakeology, and asked if I could join the Challenge Group without that. But, then they told me the price…only $140!!!! Granted, that was a sale price, but…wow! So, I got to try Shakeology, and I learned that it wasn’t what I thought it was! First and foremost, it is NOT a protein shake. It's a powerful nutritional supplement.
I am actually weird in the fact that i LOVE shakes. I remember in high school i used to drink carnation shakes for breakfast. So, the thought of shakes wasn't an issue. But, I didn't want to be drinking my calories. I LOVE to eat, and if I drank my calories, that meant I didn’t get to chew as much food! Ha ha... But seriously, if i am going to have a shake, it better fill me up and leave me content! So, since I was doing this Challenge Group thing, I had to drink one shake per day. I also wasn’t a believer in “superfoods.” I thought it was just some buzzword people in the diet industry used to get us to buy their products.
A month of giving it my all and buying into the challenge group, it was was easy to see how much it worked for me. I lost weight, My body felt amazing and I felt like a different person. In the 2 years of coaching, I have had the opportunity to learn more about superfoods and Shakeology; I’ve met one of the co-creators, Darin Olien, and I have had a shake (sometimes 2) per day since August of 2015! Shakeology has made a HUGE impact on my health and the health of my Challenge Group members and fellow Coaches, and now I understand why…
Darin Olien, co-creator of Shakeology, is known as a “Superfood Hunter,” which I thought was so weird. He’s passionate about searching for the best-quality, most nutrient-dense, cleanest and most powerful foods on the planet. I have no problem spending 130.00 on a bag (at full price…I get it 25% off as a coach)! Now that I know what all goes into producing Shakeology, the quality of the product, and I’ve experienced the impact it has on my health, <$5 per shake seems like a bargain for a shake that is made of 100% whole food ingredients…no vitamin/mineral isolates, no man-made anything. People constantly tell me they’ll just stick with XYZ shake, and it makes me sad that they’re missing out on the incredible product that Shakeology is. I’m not into bashing other companies’ products, but Shakeology really can’t be compared to anything else on the market!
Here are some of the health benefits my customers and I have experienced:
If you think Shakeology could help you (I know it can) and you want to try it, let me know by emailing me . You could order a bag here, BUT I can show you how to save money on shipping or even earn a discount on future orders if you’ll contact me BEFORE ordering!
