If you are reading this you are probably thinking of becoming a Beachbody coach and wondering if it is right for you. I am hoping with this post to give you all the answers you are looking for!
Start here by checking out this vulnerable video on why I became a Beachbody Coach!
It is pretty easy to sign up to be a coach, in fact, when you buy a challenge pack it is FREE to become a coach! But in my opinion, it isn't as easy to STAY being a coach. So many people sign up and fail! They don't make money right away and they give up. I am not here for the money, although, that is an awesome perk. I am here for the lives I am helping including my own!
My Favorite Things About Being a Coach:
Before I signed up though, I had obvious reservations and questions! Here are the main questions I had when becoming a coach:
1. How much does it cost to sign up to be a Beachbody Coach?
The sign up is FREE as long as you buy a Challenge Pack. Which if you are thinking of becoming a coach, purchasing a Challenge Pack is crucial to your business success. The Challenge Packs usually cost anywhere between $140-$180.
A Challenge Pack comes with:
You can also just sign up for $39.95 or if you have bought a Challenge Pack through Team Beachbody before, you can sign up for the $39.95 and get it refunded!! More info on that here.
2. What does it cost monthly to be a Beachbody Coach?
It is $15.95 per month to maintain your Beachbody website.
Then to be an "active" coach you must accumulate and maintain a total of 50 or greater Personal Volume "PV".
What exactly is PV?
So basically every item you buy from Team Beachbody as a coach has a PV amount, for example monthly Shakeology is 90 PV. So if you are drinking your Shakeology monthly, you will automatically be an "active" coach.
I get Vegan Chocolate Shakeology monthly (90 pv) and that costs $98 plus the $16 for my website. I also have a Club Beachbody on Demand membership which is $39 a quarter ($13 a month). So it costs me $127 a month to be a coach. Which if you are working the business can easily be covered by customer purchases.
It can cost less than that to be a coach! In fact, it can cost as little as $15.95 per month.
3. Can I still make Beachbody commissions if I am inactive or don't hold a rank?
Yes! You make 25% commissions on all products regardless of if you are active or inactive.
If you are inactive that means you aren't using the products which to me is a pretty good indicator you aren't working the business and probably not doing well. If you aren't using the products, especially Shakeology, then you really can't have conversations with people about how amazing it is and why it truly is worth investment.
I know this is where some people say "well I can't afford that monthly" and that is usually when I ask: "do you spend $4.33 a day on starbucks or fast food? If so, you can afford Shakeology."
4. What is the Discount for coaches?
Coaches get 25% discount on all personal orders.
If you are drinking Shakeology it is so worth it! And you can sign up to be a coach just for the discount! Even with the coach fees, you save over $200 a year on Shakeology!
5. Is Beachbody a scam?
Beachbody is absolutely not a scam! It is a legitimate company offering awesome weight loss and health products and it just happens to be a Multilevel Marketing Company (MLM). By the way, it is NOT a pyramid scheme. Pyramid Schemes are ILLEGAL.
At Beachbody, somebody low on the "pyramid" can make just as much if not MORE money than someone at the top. It all boils down to how hard you are willing to work!
6. Are there any Beachbody coach hidden fees?
No hidden fees. Like I said before, I spend $127 a month to be a coach and that is with buying Shakeology, having a Club Beachbody on Demand membership and my website fee.
When you buy a Challenge Pack you are automatically enrolled in Shakeology Home Direct (aka Shakeology being shipped to you monthly) but it is easy to cancel or move your ship dates with online forms!
