We get asked a TON of questions about what we do, so we’ve created a bunch of helpful resources on our site, including this Top 10 Beachbody Coach FAQ.
#1 – WHAT IS A BEACHBODY COACH?
Beachbody refers to their distributors as “Coaches.” This is because they are more than just “distributors” or “sales reps.” In addition to their ability to sell and suggest fitness products and workouts, they also have a vested interest to “coach” the people they are in contact with into a better and healthier way of life. Look at it this way…I’ve thought of myself as a coach for many years while working in the fitness industry or just by working out in the gym and offering advice to my neighbor. Now I can make it official and start earning money to do what I’ve been doing passionately for all those years.
#2 – WHO CAN BE A BEACHBODY COACH?
ANYONE! You do not need to be invited. You can make this decision yourself and sign up today. We strongly encourage those to join in the coaching business who have a strong desire to help others and themselves reach their goals. This is a home-based business where you are the “go-to” person helping people get fit. You do not need to have certifications, degrees, or years of experience working in the fitness industry to do this. All you need to do is to be an example yourself and share your successes with others. You can be a fitness professional, in the best shape of your life, or working your way to the best shape of your life….just as long as you are committed and dedicated to staying accountable, you can help others become accountable in their goals too.
#3 – WHAT DO I “DO” EVERYDAY AS A BEACHBODY COACH?
Depending on where you want to take your business or the direction of your goals, this answer can be different for everyone. The most common answer is to share your story! As a Beachbody Coach, you have the ability to sell any Beachbody item – from nutritional supplements to workout videos. Just start telling your story and letting people know about your new business venture. Trust us, the word will spread. You may also spend your time getting in touch with your network and circle you. You will have the greatest gains in your business if you build your down line team of coaches.
#4 – WHAT ARE THE FEES TO BECOME A BEACHBODY COACH?
Beachbody wants to make this as affordable as possible so that we can make a HUGE difference in our direction to change one person at a time in becoming more fit and healthy!
Initial Cost to Join: $39.95 [Plus, shipping/handling. This includes your Business Kit and your FIRST month’s fee of your personal coaching webpage.]
Monthly Webpage Fee: $14.95 [ Your personalized webpage, which will be mostly built, automatically updated, and maintained by Beachbody, will serve multiple purposes. All you need to do is personalize it with your photo and bio! Your customers can make purchases from your virtual store! They can join Team Beachbody here as well, so they can receive a 10% discount on any item they buy. You can sign up your Coaches here, too! There is also a “Coaching Back Office,” which is your coaching business center. You will securely access this to build, maintain, and watch your business grow from your down line coaches to your weekly pay checks.
OPTIONAL FEE: Quarterly Club Membership Fee: $41.98 [As a Team Beachbody Club Member, you will have access to additional fitness and nutritional programs available to you on your webpage, as well as Beachbody on Demand. However, the #1 reason to be a part of this club is Beachbody’s “Lead Generation Program!” As an active Emerald coach who reaches Success Club 5 or higher, you will be given FREE customers direct from Beachbody! They spend over $100 million annually in advertising. When those customers contact Beachbody to purchase something or to get more involved, Beachbody assigns those contacts to active Emerald [or higher] coaches!
#5 – BEACHBODY GIVES ME CUSTOMERS?
YES! Just reach the basic level of Emerald and Success Club 5 or higher, maintain active status, and you will receive customers in your database…possibly every day! Beachbody receives about 20-30,000 customer leads a week. Those all get assigned to the next active Emerald Coach [or higher] in line. You will earn commissions from these customers’ repeat business. You’ll also earn bonus commissions off of their Club Membership dues [billed and paid quarterly] just for being active. Wait, it gets better! When you meet all the qualifications we just mentioned AND reach Success Club 10, you get FREE Shakeology Customers that pay you $30 commission each! If that Shakeology customer happens to be on auto-ship, you keep making the $30 for as long as they stay on Shakeology. Not bad, especially when you consider the compound effect of that, when hitting SC 10 on a regular basis, it adds up!
#6 – HOW DO I EARN INCOME AS A BEACHBODY COACH?
There are several very detailed ways of earning income and the many ways to make a significant income. Here are the basics:
Any sales to customers of products from your website or directly from yourself earn you a 25% commission. Customers who sign up for Team Beachbody Club Membership earn you 50% of their quarterly membership dues. Personally sponsored coaches who have signed up for Club Membership earn you 50% commission. You also earn a 15% commission on the purchases of all customers who have signed up for the Club Membership. Additionally, your downline Team Cycle Bonuses can pay out when you bank a certain amount of points. And, as a Beachbody Coach, you get a 25% discount on any item you purchase as well!
#7 – DO I HAVE TO STOCK INVENTORY?
No, you do not. Being a Beachbody Coach is totally a virtual business operated through a website that is provided to you by Beachbody. However, you can purchase items in greater amounts and sell them at your leisure or as drop shipments.
#8 – CAN I BE A COACH IF I’M NOT IN THE U.S.?
Yes, if you live in Canada, you’re eligible to be a Beachbody Coach! At this time, only the U.S., U.S. Territories, military locations, and Canada are Beachbody territories. Beachbody has plans to extend the opportunity to numerous other countries.
#9 – HOW CAN I FIT THIS IN MY DAILY LIFE? I’M ALREADY WAY TOO BUSY!
If you’re involved in fitness already, this will be MUCH easier for you. It will be natural and follow what you normally do already. Opportunity always presents itself; now you’ll just have a way of earning commissions on the programs you’ve already been suggesting. The extent to which you develop your “downline” is up to each individual. You can be very aggressive to create a long downline of coaches and retail sales. As someone involved in fitness, you’ll find yourself having the same conversations you would be naturally when people ask you the many questions they often do about “getting fit” and losing weight. But, the beauty of this entrepreneurial business is that you can make it exactly what you want to fit within your lifestyle and goals.
#10 – CAN I CANCEL ANYTIME?
Yes, you can cancel within your first 30 days and be completely refunded the first month’s fees. After that, you can cancel at any time and only be out the amount of time you were in the business. However, if you decide you want to rejoin, you will lose your seniority position and level you were once in the company, and you will be required to wait six months from cancelation before you can re-activate.
