    Technology is changing home workouts for the better

    It used to be that working out at home meant donning leg warmers and popping a Jane Fonda or Richard Simmons tape into the VCR. These days, though, technology has made the at-home exercise options seem endless. There are big-box gyms that bring personal trainers to you through apps.

  • 80 Day Obession on KTLA-TV! Autumn recently appeared in a segment on KTLA-TV's morning news to showcase 80 Day Obsession. The program features 80 different workouts, targeting the core and glutes. Alongside Autumn, the KTLA team demonstrated some of her top moves.

“I work as a Manager in the Engineering department managing 5 teams of software engineers. My favorite thing about my job is the people I get to interact with every single day. Because of our polished interview process, we only hire the best talent, and by that I mean people with the right skills AND the right attitude. Everyone on the team has an ownership mentality, I have not experienced this anywhere else. Additionally the leadership team is always looking for ways to help the team be successful and become the best professionals we can be.”

Isa Rocha, Senior Manager, Software Engineering


“I work in the Research and Development group at Beachbody and have the privilege of formulating our premium nutrition products. It is a fast-paced environment where my work has a positive impact on   the customer every day. I enjoy working at Beachbody because I'm part of a committed and passionate team  and there is a company-wide feeling that consumer   value is mission critical.”

Richard Andrew, Senior Director, Product Development


“What I most appreciate about working at Beachbody is being given the opportunity to create and build a proofreading department from the ground up. Having started an editorial services department earlier in my career was a great foundation for helping make our department into a tight and organized team, familiar with the intricacies of the Beachbody brand plus having the ability to be flexible in the face of sometimes inflexible deadlines. I've got a talented team I'm so proud of and I'm also grateful for my boss (and mentor) who not only encouraged but also supported me in growing our team into a responsive and intuitive department.”

Lyn Fey, Director, Proofreading

    I have been working at Beachbody full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    From a business standpoint Beachbody’s products are top notch. There is no other company that mixes fitness and nutrition in their product catalog. Beachbody continues to push out fitness and workout programs that will flat out get you into shape no matter who you are. As for the nutrition have you seen all the greatness in Shakeology? Also Beachbody just hired an amazing resource who knows how to market Shakeology. This resource could really help elevate Beachbody’s nutritional presence in the marketplace.

    What about what Beachbody offers to its employees? There is a program called the Awesome Manager, which can be life changing. This program does not mess around. It’s an eye opening course on how to become a fabulous worker. The knowledge gained from this course can be leveraged in all facets of life.

    Beachbody just recently upgraded their eCommerce platform. Depending on who you talk with at Beachbody you either are told we are a fitness/nutrition company or we are a technology company. For all the techies out there Beachbody has proven they want to the leader in the technology space. Beachbody’s environment allows for new technologies to be leveraged and explored.

    Cons

    Beachbody still has some growing up to do. It’s widely known that Beachbody is considered to be in its adolescence phase of business. Being in this phase offers many challenges, but at the same time many opportunities for success. It’s important for existing workers and potential candidates to understand that this point in a company’s life cycle might not be for everybody. You need to understand that there will be challenges. Without a doubt I have all the faith in our management team to get us to the next level of Beachbody’s evolution.

    Advice to Management

    I heard there are ‘skip’ meetings within the organization. I think these are an absolute necessity and should include all levels of employees. It allows people to have their voice heard from someone other than their immediate manager.
