Before I get into the business stuff you need to know I was a customer of Beachbody before I became a coach. This is important for you to know because customers make the best coaches. A friend told me about P90X in 2007 and I was hooked. P90X was put together so well and was a lot of fun. I did three rounds of P90X in 2008 before learning about the Beachbody Coach opportunity in early 2009.
Wish I would have heard about being a Beachbody Coach sooner as many of my friends and family members saw my results and asked me what I was doing to get in shape. My story is different as I did not lose weight doing P90X. I was a “skinny fat” runner who ended up putting on 10 pounds of muscle, cutting body fat, and was as fit as I’ve ever been. Many of my friends approached me asking what I was doing to get in such great shape. I told them P90X and where to buy it. Since I was not a Beachbody Coach at the time I did not earn any money by referring them to Beachbody. If I was involved as a coach I would have earned at least $700. Of course I wish I would have earned the money but I still signed up for the 25% discount on the products and went to work learning how to be a Beachbody Coach. Basically I continued to use Beachbody products and share my results with others. Watch the video below to see what the Beachbody Coach Business Opportunity is all about.
What Is A Beachbody Coach?
Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler says its perfectly. “They are not fitness or nutritional experts. These are people who simply love the products and love sharing them with people because they actually work.” I am not a fitness expert. All I did to achieve my results was buy a workout program and follow the plan. That’s it. From there, I went and shared the products with my inner circle. I was “Coaching” before I even became a Beachbody Coach.
What Are The Benefits Of Being A Beachbody Coach?
- 25% Discount on Products
- Earn Money While Getting In Shape
- Low $39 Sign Up Fee (Free For Active Duty Military)
- No Inventory
- Training & Support
- Tax Write Offs
- Knowing That Your Helping End The Trend Of Obesity
Have You Met The Beachbody Trainers Or Executives?
Yes. The trainers are exactly like what they are in the videos. P90X trainer Tony Horton is cracking jokes all the time. Shaun T from the Insanity workout is intense and always teaching the importance of good form. Chalene Johnson from Turbo Fire is full of energy. Brett Hoebel from RevAbs and the Biggest Loser has this natural coolness that I’m kind of jealous of. Doing the workouts with them is a whole lot different than following on a dvd as they are correcting your every move. Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler is the passionate guy behind all of this. Its easy to see how much he truly cares about ending the trend of obesity going in our world.
Who Should Be A Beachbody Coach?
Everyone. You do not need to be in shape or fit from day 1. I like to look at it as a commitment to yourself to use the products. The business usually follows those who put the time and effort into themselves first as your inner circle will notice what your doing. I recommend you take advantage of the 25% discount on products from the get go and do a workout program. Just like with any business, you need to know your product.
Who Is The Beachbody Coach Program Not For?
This is a trick question. Its for everybody. It really does help if you use the products though. If making money is your thing thats cool too. Odds are you’ll be helping people who buy Beachbody products from you and you’ll come around to giving them a try yourself.
How Much Does It Cost To Be A Beachbody Coach?
Just like with any business there are some startup fees. The good news is they are very low. There is a one time $39.95 sign up fee and then its $15.95 a month afterwards to be a Beachbody Coach. You get three websites (general Beachbody Coach, Shakeology, and Ultimate Reset) to send people to. The $15.95 also covers warehousing, shipping, customer service, and inventory. All of the things you do not want to deal with. All you do is send people to those sites and Beachbody handles the rest. Here is what they look like.
Am I Required To Buy Anything As A Beachbody Coach?
No, but you should. Beachbody gives you a 25% discount on all of their products so you should at the very least buy Shakeology on auto shipment for free shipping. I buy Shakeology every month and the Beachbody Performance line every three months. They have made a big difference in my workout results. The discount alone covers the $16 a month fee to be a Beachbody Coach. In my opinion, Shakeology is Beachbody’s best product.
Is This A Pyramid Scheme?
No. This is a business opportunity where we sell real products.
Can I Make Money As A Beachbody Coach?
Yes. However, this is not a get rich quick scheme. Its going to take time. The business part of being a Beachbody Coach is just like doing P90X. You get out of it what you put into it. The good news is that its only $39 to start and $16 a month afterwards. You don’t need to worry about a lot of expenses while trying to build your business. Most do this in their part time as they already have a full time job. Here’s a couple snapshots of my earnings from my first month to over the past two years. The first one shows my first month as a Beachbody Coach. Most of my sales were from friends or family. The second and third are sales and bonuses. The beginning of the year is when people are making their New Years Resolutions so business is typically better. (Update 4-2-14 – Double #’s below)
My goal with showing you my commission checks is to impress upon you that the Beachbody Coach business opportunity is real. You can tell from my earnings that it did not happen over night for me. At the same time you need to know I was unemployed at the time without many options. I decided to learn as much as I could and apply those things over the next nine months. The first six months were a real challenge but I stuck with it and kept growing. If you have a full time job and full time life then these earnings through the Beachbody Coach opportunity might take a little longer. Reason being is I was spending 50 hours a week learning and applying. Most people can only put in 5 hours a week on top of doing the workouts. No need to fear. The business will follow. I just wanted to give you realistic expectations.
Stuff Only A Beachbody Coach Can See
The video below shows how the customer lead program works to and why its so important to make Emerald Coach as soon as possible. You’ll hear me in the video talking about sponsoring new coaches under older coaches and how I will do that for you too. (I no longer do this as people rely on me to do the business for them.) What I do now is train you how to build a successful Beachbody Coach business and support you as you go. This way we are setting you up for success instead of a big let down. I made this video in 2009 so its a little old but the principles are still the same. You will see my earnings from when I signed up in 2009, how the compensation plan works, the 25% discount on products, how to maintain an active status, and how this business can start to grow away from you the longer you stick with it.
What Success Have You Had As a Beachbody Coach?
From a business perspective I would say that I’m most proud of sticking with it and making a full time income for myself in less than a year. Its nice to be able to call my own shots. I have made it to 4 Star Diamond Coach rank but ranks are only a part of it. Along with that I’ve had a chance to enjoy a few perks of being a successful Beachbody Coach.

Enough About Me
What about you? Are you looking for a way to get in shape and be held accountable? Would you like to build a health and fitness business in your part time? Are you willing to work for your success? What you will soon find out about being a Beachbody Coach is that this is not about you, its about others.
Why Join My Team Of Beachbody Coaches?
My earnings and awards above should show you that I am very serious and have lots of experience in building a successful Beachbody Coach business. The good news for you is I went through a year of trial and error finding the best ways to build a solid business and will share everything I know with you. That means guides, videos, slideshows, presentations, etc. I have it all. There are many different ways to do this business including online / offline marketing, social media, and person to person. What we will do together is find out what way works the best for you and your schedule. Plus, you’ll have access to me on a daily basis as I do this full time.
You Need A Good Support Team
What I like the most about being a Beachbody Coach is how supportive everybody is with achieving their physical and financial goals. When you join to be a Beachbody Coach with me you will be introduced my own mini team called Team Epic. There are currently 165 Coaches in this group from all over the country. We share our struggles, successes, road blocks, and insight via our Team Epic Facebook Group. Post a question and you’ll probably have it answered in 15 minutes. This is very helpful for you when you start bringing in new coaches of your own. Nobody is left out. This is a team concept so “sharing is caring.”
The Beachbody Coach business opportunity is the best business experience I have ever seen as you get to help others take care of their physical health while working on your financial health. This is the only business opportunity where every single person you meet, know, or talk to can benefit from one of Beachbody’s products. This is a huge advantage when building a business as you get to piggyback of the millions of dollars of advertising Beachbody spends every year. When somebody asks what would be your ideal job or career and your answer is “I want to help people” then I can think of nothing better than being a Beachbody Coach.
