How The Yee Peng Festival (Lantern Festival) Relates to Your Beachbody Business

Let me first tell you a short story when I was traveling through Thailand a couple years ago. Starting my Southeast Asia Trip in the Philippines, I didn't have an agenda at all. Years ago, I was the type of person who would plan everything before I left, accommodations and tours, the whole nine yards. These days, it's all about going with the flow and just enjoying life how it is thrown at me.

I arrived in the Philippines on September 2014 and traveled all over my parent's home country (I'm filipino), Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. Like I said, I didn't have a plan. All I wanted to do was relax and enjoy. I didn't even have a return ticket to go back home.

When I arrived in Thailand around the end of August 2014, I was excited to explore the mountains and witness indigenous village life with no plans to even visit the popular Thai Beaches. I spent some time in Bangkok, but I was ready to see the real Thailand, and just get away from the big metropolitan city. I headed to Chiang Mai because I heard that there was some good mountain biking and off the beaten path activities which I enjoy the most.

Check out my Southeast Asia Travel Montage Video - 2014


As soon as I arrived in Chiang Mai, I checked into my guesthouse, and the host asked me if I was going to the Lantern Festival? Feeling a bit embarrassed because I didn't really know what was going on (remember, I was just going by the flow) I said, "sure, why not, what's it all about?"

The host at the guesthouse told me that it's a tradition that happens every year where people release a lantern in the sky to let go of illnesses and misfortunes from the previous year, and the time to "make a wish" to hopefully have a much better year. The only way for your wish to come true is if you do good deeds the following year, that's the catch!

This kinda reminded me of what I, and thousands of other Beachbody Coaches do with their businesses. The annual Coach Summit for Beachbody Coaches, is like the Lantern Festival for the Thai community.

Just like the host mentioned, the wish that you make will not come true unless good deeds are performed. Just like anything in life with new years resolutions, and specifically my business with Beachbody, success with Beachbody Coaching will not happen unless we do good deeds by helping others reach their goals. It isn't just about the goals that we set out for ourselves, it's about the other 50%....other people.

I was just on a Leadership Call last night, and the host on the call reminded me of just that, Leadership is based on 50% of my goals, and the other 50% of the sum of the people and leaders that I help. For me, that's so powerful, and such a great reminder.

So I ask this question to all of you: Are you doing your good deeds this year for your goals to become a reality? When you release your Lantern at the next Coach Summit, will you have made an impact the previous year?


Whether you are a Beachbody Coach or not, I encourage you to set goals, and help people along the way. It's not about putting everyone else before you, it's about creating a give and take with the people who matter most. When push comes to shove, it is all about creating real relationships that last a lifetime. Who wants to hike up the DOI INTHANON (the highest mountain in Thailand) by themselves? It's lonely at the top, why not bring some friends with you! =)

When I Became A Beachbody Coach back in 2010, I Never Thought....

Real Beachbody Coach Success Story, Beachbody Coach Motivation, Become a Beachbody Coach, Should I Become a Beachbody Coach, Beachbody International, Filipino Beachbody Coach, Beachbody UK


Yes, I've been a Beachbody Coach for almost 7 years now!

And although I am far from being where I envision myself, I have to say that it's been an amazing journey. They say that in order to stay focused and happy, it is encouraged to always point out the things that are GREAT in our lives. So let me start my day by sharing what my Beachbody Coaching Business has given me, I am so thankful!

1.  I haven't had a job working for a boss in almost 5 years.

2.  I've visited almost 40 countries.

3.  I started a cause-related video media project which brings in millions of social media views and helps me raise awareness for charities around the world.

Thanks to my Online Coaching Business, I am able to travel around the world,
and spread the word about my OCRTUBE media project

4.  The FREEDOM to spend as much time with my daughter and family without a job telling me when I can.

5.  I am in better shape than I was in high school.

My First P90X Transformation Video

I would like to point out that it may seem like I am bragging, but I honestly have to tell you that I am not. I am celebrating my successes just like I would like to encourage you to celebrate yours. By putting this in writing, it makes a bigger difference in not just making bigger goals for yourself, but it can inspire others to achieve more. I've learned that it's not just about me, it's about truly helping others.

Was it easy?

If I told you all the things that I had to go through to get the things listed above, you probably would say, "no thank you". Here's the thing, I was tired of being told what to do. I was tired of working for someone else's dreams, and not mine. I was tired of having to go back home when I was having so much fun on vacation. I was tired of not having quality time with my family.

I was tired of just being tired.

It took a lot out of me....blood, sweat and tears to create a life by design, but if you were to ask me if it was worth it, I would say.....ABSOLUTELY!

So based on the things that I have listed above, I have created more goals on top of that, and here they are. Again, I am putting this out there to hold me accountable, and to maybe find others that have similar goals so that I can make new connections. Did I do this on my own, heck no! There were hundreds of people responsible for creating my life by design, they know who they are =). But I have new goals, bigger goals, and I'm searching for more people with VISION. Do you have vision? Are you ready to live your life?

1.  I haven't had a job in almost 5 years, now my goal is to create opportunities for people whether it be a job or a chance to become an entrepreneur.

2.  I've visited almost 40 countries, but there are 196 countries, so I have a long ways to go!

3.  I started a cause-related media project called OCRTUBE.com, my goal is to continue my mission of spreading the benefits of obstacle course racing (along with health and fitness in general) around the world through social media efforts, and eventually donate millions to global causes. I aspire to become a Philanthropist. 

4.  I have more freedom to spend time with my family, that's the most important thing to me. But how awesome would it be if I can show others how to gain physical and financial freedom for themselves? For me, that's one of the most meaningful things anyone could do.

5.  Yes, I am in better shape than I was in high school. Now it's time to help others! From this point forward, I would like to help at least 3-5 people per month get in the best shape possible. So if you're ready to start a fitness journey, please feel free to contact me, I promise to always be there for you.

When I became a Beachbody Coach back in 2010, I never thought that I would accomplish half of these things because I was an extreme introvert, and I still am, but this business really changes you, and that's addicting. Once you begin to see some positive changes, it's really hard to look back, so what do you do? You continue moving forward. What about you? Are you ready for change?

Why People Quit Beachbody Coaching

Why Beachbody Coaches Fail, Why Beachbody Coaches Quit, Should I Become a Beachbody Coach, Beachbody Global, Beachbody UK, Become a Beachbody Coach, Before you Become a Beachbody Coach, Beachbody Coach Tips, Filipino Beachbody Coach

Well this can get really heated ha ha =)

Firstly, for those of you who know me, I'm the type of person who always tries to find the good in everything, and with this topic considered to be a "negative" for some, it is still my goal to find the brighter side of things. So let's dig in and find out why some Beachbody Coaches Quit.

With anything in life, it's all about finding something that can benefit us. Our primal instincts as humans is to survive, so when we come across something that we deem as too difficult or not pertinent to the path that we would like to take, we quit and either go another route, or unfortunately for many, the same route which leads to mediocrity .

Surviving in life and business today is complicated. Back in the paleolithic days, man had one goal in mind, and that was to survive. And the only way to do that was to hunt and gather food for their family. If they slept in, or decided to not go out and hunt, they would die.

In today's society, things are much different, but surprisingly still the same. Yes, the times have changed with technology and the standards of luxury living, but the goal of surviving hasn't changed. If we do not go out and hunt, we will still die. Today's hunting can mean working or looking for a job, running a successful business to provide for our family. Creating a tribe (company) to help other tribal members provide for their families so that we can take care of ours.

But somewhere in the mix of today's society, we have become lazy and less focused.

Cavemen had no time to be lazy. If they fell asleep during the hunt, they would be hunted and killed in a split second. If we fell asleep today, we could get fired from our jobs, and/or our businesses would fail due to not being productive or innovative.

What does this have to do with Beachbody Coaches?

It has a lot to do with Beachbody Coaches and today's entrepreneurs because the decisions we make can make us or break us.

These are 4 main reasons that I feel from my own experience why most Beachbody Coaches quit: (Please note that this can apply to anything in life)

1.  Difficulty Factor - Some people are just not meant to be Entrepreneurs. They may not have the drive to be a leader of a tribe, even though training is available to them literally 24/7. They may not have found a reason to fight for. Or they might just be plain lazy. DISTRACTION is also part of this. People see shiny objects (hobbies that take away from productivity, surrounding yourself with toxic or unsupportive, non-goal driven people etc) and take them away from what they wanted to accomplish in the first place. But here's the deal, Beachbody Coaching can be difficult for some, and easy for another. It's all about going out and trying something that you've never done before, and doing it 100% for at least 2-5 years. If you can honestly say that you have done that, and the business still hasn't work for you, then yes, it is definitely smart to move on and find where your passion lies elsewhere.

"If you care about what people think about you, you will never make it"

2.  Heart for Helping Others - Some people just don't have it. I know people who can barely support themselves, let along motivate others to become successful. Although there is superior training for this, it's all about people making a decision to really want to make that change. If you're heart is not really into bettering yourself first, then holy crap, it will be very difficult to help others. Most people don't ever pass the barrier of devoting time to making themselves successful in happiness through personal development, so they never get the idea of helping others. Yes, I know that everyone doesn't have the goal of saving the world =), and that's ok. As long as you learn to make yourself happy, then I'm pretty sure that any Beachbody Coach out there would appreciate the fact that you are spreading good vibes. It's all about respecting and being happy for others, Beachbody Coach or not.

3.  Money - I've seen this a lot. Ok, I know that this is a business. Becoming a Beachbody Coach is like owning your own business, so yes, it is a "for-profit" enterprise. But it starts with something called INTEGRITY. In order to really become successful as a Beachbody Coach, you really have to change lives. If you are not making an impact in the community and coaching people through their fitness and financial journey, you will not make it. It's about investing a lot of your time into people. And unfortunately, most people aren't dedicated enough to do that, and I find that to be really sad. If you are a successful Beachbody Coach, that only means that you have helped thousands of people, and that's something to be proud of. Beachbody Coaching is not about selling materialistic items, it's really about selling a lifestyle. The fitness and health products are designed to help people become better humans, and what a movement that is! So I don't know about you, but I would rather be a part of something that is helping people become more happy and healthy versus just selling them something that just makes money. Reality check, if you're a greedy person, you will not last very long in this business, and that's a fact. Success is about putting people first, always has been. It's a relationship building business, just like any other business out there. Without people, we have no business. And trust me, I didn't make that up, just ask the people at Apple or Facebook if they need people to build a business =)

4.  Opportunity - As humans, it's about surviving right. So there will always be opportunities that will present itself to us. For me, I believe in diversifying my income, as any entrepreneur should. Some people feel it necessary to quit something and go towards what they feel is a better opportunity. This is my take on that, it's your life, do with it as you wish. If you feel that quitting something and moving on to the "next big thing" is something that will help you become successful, then by all means go for it. But how many times are you going to do this? Most people do not understand that it doesn't really matter what they do because they already have what it takes to become successful within themselves. It's not about a company or a new compensation plan, it's about your commitment, determination, and integrity. It's about the fight in you. Everywhere we go, there will always be challenges, and I'm sure that most of you would agree that quitting is not going to make things better. Instead of quitting, how about diversifying? Maybe try getting strong inside before making a decision to just repeat the same old process of searching for something that you already have. Now don't get me wrong, people have become successful leaving jobs to start businesses, or leaving other businesses to start larger empires, and that's great! All I'm saying is that it isn't about a company, it's all about bettering you. Without the right mindset, success will always be one step ahead. Change that mindset, change your life.

My Favorite Part Of What I Do

Entrepreneurship, Beachbody Coach Benefits, Real Beachbody Coach Success Story, Filipino Beachbody Coach, Filipino P90X Coach, Become a Beachbody Coach
The man who taught me about Entrepreneurship - my father

At a very young age, I remember helping my father with his restaurant and food concession business. I would wake up everyday, and I would witness my father working all the time. It's almost as if that's all he did. He was still in the Navy at the time, and on the weekends, he would be selling food at festivals and fairs all over the USA.

I'm on the very far right with my Stretch Armstrong
Entrepreneurship, Beachbody Coach Benefits, Real Beachbody Coach Success Story, Filipino Beachbody Coach, Filipino P90X Coach, Become a Beachbody Coach


I didn't know what an Entrepreneur was, all I knew was that my father believed in working for himself. He told me one day that if you want something, you have to go and get it yourself, and that by working for someone else, you would never be able to achieve your fullest potential.

As I got older, I began to understand what my father was teaching me. I started to find work on my own and ventured out of the family business, but I always felt out of place. I always felt like I should be the owner of the companies that I worked for, or at least, that's what I envisioned. My father planted a seed in me that I could one day be an Entrepreneur and build my own business just like he did.

My father came from poverty in the Philippines. He is not college educated, and never considered himself as a professional. He's a hustler. He's a family man. He's my inspiration.

My father is my inspiration

To see my father come from a 3rd world country and become successful in a 1st world country is inspiring. If he could do it, why not me?

As the years went by, I took on plenty of jobs, and even started businesses that either failed, or became successful, but I somehow lost my passion.

As humans, we are always looking for happiness. Some people find happiness and success at a very young age......I didn't. I took me awhile to find something that I was truly passionate about.

6 years ago, I found my passion in health and fitness and helping others along the way. Prior to that, I was out of shape, miserable, and was a borderline alcoholic. P90X changed my life.

Never forget where you came from

Everything that my father taught me at an early age started to come back to me in full swing. With my life in shambles, it was time to rebuild.....mind you I was already in my late 30's to early 40's. It has taken me all this time to find my true calling.

You see, life is mysterious. It doesn't work like you always want it too, but in the end, with patience, and the willingness to learn, things happen when you don't give up. Was it hard? YES. Is it still hard? ABSOLUTELY!

Anything worth doing will bring on many challenges. It's really about finding something that helps you propel forward. It's about finding a reason to believe, and finding that thing or person to fight for. In this case, it's my daughter and my family. Yes, I have goals and hobbies, and things that I like to do for myself, but my family will always be number one.

I work hard everyday for my family

There are a lot of things that I love about what I do. But if you were to ask me what my favorite part of what I do is......it would be the FREEDOM. It was never about the money, never was.....it was always about living my life on my own terms.

That's my favorite part.

During Coach Summit in New Orleans, I had a couple of my coaches join me for my Day 4, Abs Workout, yes, they are so nice! Also, as you know, my core and flexibility are the weakest (if you've been following my journey), so it was awesome to have some motivation alongside with me =)

Let me tell you something, this 7 Day Shaun Week Challenge is no joke! Add Coach Summit events on top of that, and I'm like WOWZA, I was beat tired!

I honestly tried my best to keep up with my Shaun Week workouts during Coach Summit, but I ended up missing one. The cool thing is that even though I did miss one workout, I was able to do a Super Workout that was hosted at Coach Summit, so I didn't slack off 100%, I did DO WORK, and did work with over 25,000 other coaches right by the Mercedes Benz Super dome, I'll post a video soon =)

Choosing the Best Workout for You

Choosing the Best Workout for You, Choosing a Good Fitness Coach, Choosing a Beachbody Coach, Beachbody on Demand Free Trial, Get Shakeology Samples, Vegan Shakeology Samples, Free Online Coaching


It's a popular question that I hear all the time, "Arnel, which workout should I do?"

It may become daunting in the very beginning, I know....because it was for me as well, but if I were to give you one piece of advice as far as trying to find the best workout FOR YOU, and your goals, this is what it would be:

"Ask someone who will be completely honest with you, and is not focused on just selling what they have to offer"

As a Full Time Online Beachbody Coach for 6 years now, I give recommendations all the time. The people who come to me for the most part know that I am a Beachbody Coach, and I let them know right off the bat that my suggestions are based on my experience as a Beachbody Coach, and what I've done.


I say this because I want to be truthful with my customers. I want to be honest and let them know that yes, there are plenty of other programs and workouts out there, but what I offer is specifically Beachbody Workout related.

Most of the people that I am surrounded by are athletes and individuals who participate in extreme and endurance sports. And although my Beachbody workouts are great for these people, some of them need more specific training to help them towards a more targeted goal.

When I started my fitness journey back in 2010, I started a program called P90X. I chose this program because I wanted to get more lean, lose some weight, and gain my strength back. A few months later, my brother introduced me to obstacle course racing, and the only training that I had was from P90X and another program called Insanity. These two programs helped me become a better runner, and built my foundation as an athlete and awarded me with a handful of podium finishes throughout my ocr career.

(Vegan? Click here)

These days, if you are interested in getting on the podium and racing for big money, the training would have to go far beyond just P90X and Insanity. Both programs are great to be incorporated, but the programs alone are not specific to the sport itself in terms of olympic and elite podium finishes. Yes, it's perfect for integration, but not specific. Again, this depends on your goals.

Are you an elite athlete, or training to be in the Olympics? Or are you a beginner to advanced competitor? If you are the latter, than yes, P90X and other Beachbody programs such as Insanity Asylum will definitely be a benefit to your training.

It's great to see some of the top athletes in the world, and learn what they do to train, but it's ridiculous to try to do what they are doing when you are not in peak condition as they are, don't fool yourself.

The best thing to do is first build your foundation. Build up your strength and cardio, and most importantly, learn proper form. I've seen some really good athletes with very poor form. They can run fast, but their exercise game is scary. Before you do a rope climb, make sure that you can do a pull up. Before you do sand bag carries, make sure that you know how to properly pick up weights and put them down. It's about the learning basics, and having patience. Every athlete had to build a solid foundation before they started specific training towards their discipline.

This also goes for anything whether you want to be a dancer, hiker, rock climber, or just want to lose weight. Find a Coach or person who will give you honest advice and will help you build a foundation, and then take it from there.

Beachbody Workouts are not the only workouts out there, just like Crossfit is not the only program that is forging elite fitness. Be cautious when someone tells you that they have the best program, it's a lie because the best program is only the truth if it's the best program for you.

It may take some time to find out which workout would be best for you, and that's ok. As long as you are being active, having fun, and being safe, then you are headed in the right direction. Always make sure that you are listening to your body and leave your ego at home =)

Being a Beachbody Coach doesn't mean that I only do beachbody workouts. I love fitness in general and I'm willing to try anything, and I have. I have done Crossfit, Martial Arts, Running, Yoga etc. And they've all been great! I am also an adventure filmmaker/videographer and I travel all over the world and film events in some of the most extreme conditions. I run after some of the fastest and strongest athletes in the world, and people always ask me, what type of workouts do you do, and I don't hesitate at all, because for 6 years now, it's been Beachbody Workouts religiously. I don't say this because I market these products as my business, I honestly say this because the programs do work, and I'm proof of that, along with the hundreds of testimonials from my customers which now surpass over 3,000 globally.

Hey guys!

I just got back from a 3 month trip in North America and Europe filming for my OCRTUBE media project, and even though I ran and did some exercises here and there, I have to honestly say that I was not at all consistent.

So I am back in Florida for a few weeks, and I decided to start Shaun Week, which is a 7 day workout program from a combination of Shaun T's workouts, it's going to be insane, but just what the doctor ordered!

I will be starting today (Tuesday, July 11th), and my father will also be joining me. The challenge will be that I am also going to attend the annual Beachbody Coach Summit in New Orleans this week till the end of the weekend, and if you are a BB Coach, you all know how intense the training and conference schedule is, it's like balls to wall busy! I plan to do my Shaun Week workout in between the coach events, I know that I will be beat tired, but hey.....I did this to myself =) I need to get back on point, like really on point!

Ask me about my upcoming Shaun Week Challenge Group!

Any of you are free to join me, just message me here. If you are reading this after the fact, just to let you know, this program will always be available, so just message me anyways and I can help you get started =)
