Beachbody Offers a Path to Fitness

BeachbodyOver his four-decade-long career in business and entrepreneurship, Carl Daikeler has made a name for himself as a doer and a believer in what he does. Rather than just saying the words, he lives the life. In the early years of his career, he was a producer of halftime dancing and shows for the NFL. After five years of NFL production services, he entered the infomercial and infotainment industry. As a producer of those media services, Daikeler noticed that fitness products flew off the shelves.

After spending some time considering why people were buying fitness products to use at home, he understood that exercising at home was more convenient than going to a gym. He also determined that a lot of people felt shame about their bodies. An ashamed person may not want to go to the gym and exercise in front of fit, buff people. Many people also told Daikeler that their busy work schedules and lack of babysitting services made it hard for them to go to a gym. He also encountered people from rural areas and small towns that didn’t have gyms.

In 1998, Carl Daikeler decided to change his life and the lives of others by founding Beachbody. In its first phase, Beachbody was a set of 12 workout DVDs available for purchase directly through the company. The demand for the DVDs far exceeded Daikeler’s initial expectations. People wanted him to record more workouts, and he did. He produced and starred in about two new videos per month for 10 years.


Shakeology came to fruition in 2009. It’s a protein powder. A consumer mixes it with any kind of animal-based or plant-based milk. When blended and chilled, it tastes like a creamy shake. Unlike fast food, Shakeology is nutritious. It contains plenty of fiber and 16 grams of protein. Because it makes the consumer feel full, the consumer is more likely to lose weight. Shakeology is available in a range of delectable flavors. People can try the sampler packs to decide which one they like best. Most users pair Beachbody and Shakeology for optimal weight loss.
