Achieve Goals With Beachbody

Carl DaikelerMany people have a goal to drop down one BMI point, fit into a smaller size of pants or get more toned. However, reaching those goals can be a challenge due to a busy lifestyle, a sense of shame or not knowing how to get started. Carl Daikeler, an experienced entrepreneur, helps people get started achieving their weight loss and fitness goals. Before he founded Beachbody, he was a producer of NFL halftime entertainment shows. He also spent close to a decade in the infomercial industry.

The 1998 launch of Beachbody was a complete success. The program started small. Carl Daikeler and his co-founder, Darin Olien, created 12 exercise DVDs and promoted them infomercials and online. Once social media came into the picture, they set up a coaching system. Beachbody rapidly grew into a collection of hundreds of workout videos. People found that they preferred working out at home instead of going to the gym. By exercising in their own living quarters, people could avoid the sense of shame from the gym jocks and save both time and money.

Carl Daikeler has also been focusing on the importance of nutrition. The body needs protein if it is going to build muscle. Shakeology was developed by Daikeler and Olien in 2009. The protein powders include whey and vegan formulations. The available flavors include salted caramel, vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and more. Each serving of Shakeology provides a person with lots of protein, fiber and key vitamins and minerals. This filling combination satisfies cravings and creates a sensation of satiety in the belly.


In order to continue providing exemplary care to his customers, Carl Daikeler launched Beachbody on Demand in 2015. This streaming program allows a person to pick any of the more than 300 exercise programs. A person no longer has to purchase individual DVDs. This makes it a lot easier to work out while traveling. OpenFit, Daikeler’s exercise and wellness app, launched in 2018. It facilitates the socializing and peer support of people who are trying to lose weight. Shakeology, the workouts and coaching come together to help people get fit.
