ShakeologMany people want to get fit, but they don’t know where to start. The proliferation of fast food and busy lifestyles also make it difficult to eat a nutritious diet. Carl Daikeler is on a mission to help people get fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Daikeler’s career began with a production position in the NFL. He filmed halftime shows. He also spent many years in the infomercial industry. His experiences there showed him that people have the desire and motivation to exercise, but the hassle factor was impeding their progress.

Carl Daikeler founded Beachbody as a way to eliminate the hassle of exercising. Initially, the program consisted of about 10 videos on DVD. People could buy the DVDs and work out at home with minimal equipment. Participants didn’t have to deal with the shame, hassle or frustration of the gym. Beachbody became wildly popular. Within years, Daikeler had produced hundreds of videos for the program. He’s even featured in many of them. Carl Daikeler truly believes in what he does.

In 2015, he launched Beachbody on Demand. Its use soared in 2020, and even more people recognized the safety and benefits of exercising at home. His app, which launched in 2018 under the name OpenFit, has also been a boon for people who want social support in their fitness journey.

The nutritional aspect of health hasn’t been overlooked by Daikeler. He would be the first one to admit that he doesn’t like vegetables. Knowing he wasn’t the only one who felt that way, he and his team developed Shakeology. It’s now a key part of the overall Beachbody program. Shakeology is a nutrition system centered around protein shakes. The protein powders are available in whey and plant options, so they’re acceptable for a range of dietary plans.


One Shakeology shake has at least 16 grams of protein. The shakes are designed to fill nutritional gaps. Most Americans don’t get enough fiber, vitamins or minerals in their diets. Shakeology makes it easy to get all of those essential nutrients. The powders come in tasty flavors, including vanilla, salted caramel and strawberry.
