You might be wondering what a Coach is and I am happy to tell you. First off you need to know that I am a customer of Beachbody and not a employee. Beachbody makes P90X, Insanity, and many other home workout programs which I have used to get into shape.
I am not a fitness or nutrition expert. I’m a normal guy who struggled (got bored) to stay in shape while going to gyms over the years and now found a better way. I let the experts at Beachbody tell me what to do. They develop the workouts and nutrition plans and I follow them. When I get done with one workout I go and buy a new one. Doing this has helped me get into great shape in my home. I canceled my $720 a year gym membership because of this.
When you sign up to be a Beachbody Coach the two biggest benefits you get are a 25% discount on all Beachbody products and the opportunity to run a business. Beachbody’s customers were getting such great results from the workouts that friends, family, co-workers, etc. were asking them what they were doing to get into shape. They would tell them and then go buy the products from Beachbody directly. Beachbody decided to start the Coach program rewarding people who share their experiences.
I had done two rounds of P90X before I found out about the Coach opportunity in Jan 2009. I wish I would of found out sooner as friends saw my results and ended up buying P90X. I would of earned $550 if I’d been a Coach and referred them. The 25% discount on the products was still enough to make me join. While continuing with the workouts I did the business part time. My commitment to the workouts and business came together when I won Top Coach for Region 5 Summer 2009. This meant a lot to me as there was a couple thousand coaches going for this award. Watch the video to see my P90X results and business success.
Don’t let the title of Coach deter you from signing up. I look at it as a way to answer questions about the products because I do them already. If anything, Beachbody is coaching you. Tell people what you are doing to get in shape and then send them to the website Beachbody gives you (looks like this). I made this video where I show things you cannot see until you become a coach including my weekly earnings to prove this is real. (Update 6/3/10 – Double what you see in the video)
The coach program is for everybody. Sign up for the 25% discounts, just for the business, or both. I well tell you that the people who really commit to a workout and use the nutritional products typically do better with the business. The reason is because they become a walking billboard and people come up to them and ask what they are doing to get in shape. I cannot tell you how many times people have approached me at the grocery store when they see me wearing my P90X t-shirt or hat and ask me about it. I hand them a business card with my before and after photos on the back and talk about the Coaching program or workouts. Its really that easy. People know the P90X and Insanity brand because of the infomercials or somebody they know is doing it and getting great results. That’s probably why you’re reading this right now.
Being a coach is a commitment to yourself to get into shape with Beachbody workouts. The reason why people fail when going to the gyms is they don’t have the knowledge to make their own programs and continue to change them. Beachbody handles all of that for you now. Let’s say you don’t even earn $1 as a coach but you got into great shape. Would it still be worth it? I think so. The worse thing that can happen is you save some money on the products you buy. I’d say almost 90% of the people who sign up do it for the discounts alone.
I’m sure you want to know how you get paid as a coach. I can disect the compensation plan and confuse the heck out of you or break it down to its simpliest form. You earn a 25% commission when people buy from you and earn bonuses from what the coaches you sponsor buy or sell. Its really that simple.

Words Of Wisdom
While I am more than willing to help and support you building your business, this really comes back to you and your effort. It took me 9 months of doing this part time before I took the leap to full time status. You should know I was unemployed at the time and had nothing else to do so I really worked this. If you have a full time job then you should set your time frame a little longer. I advise setting a 3 year goal with mini goals along the way. If you can get one new customer and coach a month then you would cover your business expenses in the first month. At the end of the first year you would have a residual monthly income of at least $400. Would that help you out?
How Much Does It Cost?
$39.95 which can be waived if you buy a workout program and Shakeology at sign up. Highly Recommended.
$14.95 every 5 weeks after sign up. This covers customer service, shipping, inventory, i.e boring stuff.
Any Additional Costs?
Its important to maintain an active status as a Coach. This can easily be done by selling or buying roughly $50 a month on products. Think about that for a second. You could consume your business expenses on yourself and grow a nice side or full time business from it. Beachbody has many products to choose from and you can go on their home direct plan where they mail you a product of your choice every 5 weeks. Many items come with free shipping when you choose home direct. I have Shakeology, P90X Recovery Drink, Whey Protein, P90X Multivitamin, and their Wildberry Protein Bars sent every month. I recommend you get on home direct. If its coming in the mail you will use them and do the workouts. More importanly is those products will enhance your workout results.
How To Get Started As A Coach?
If you are ready to sign up then follow the Beachbody Coach link. I recommend getting on the Shakeology home direct program along with buying a workout at sign up to take advantage of the 25% discount. If you still have questions before signing up then please contact me.
If you do not want to be a coach then that’s cool too. Go to the Beachbody Store and pick out a workout to do or at the least sign up for a Free Beachbody Account so you can see what Beachbody has to offer.
