I’ve been a Beachbody coach for almost 7 years now (how is that possible?!?) and I’ve been a part of the community for so long that sometimes I forget that some people still don’t know exactly what a Beachbody coach IS and what we DO.
I think the word “coach” can be a little confusing!
So let me explain…!
An Independent Team Beachbody Coach is a representative or independent distributor of Beachbody products. It’s sort of like the health and fitness version of Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, etc.
I think Beachbody probably thought “coach” sounded more inspiring than “representative” or “distributor”! After all, the company motto states: “Help People Achieve Their Goals to Lead Healthy Fulfilling Lives.”
Beachbody is the same company that produces some of the most popular home workout programs like P90X, Insanity, PiYO, and 21-Day Fix just to name a few. Beachbody is also the mastermind behind Shakeology, a nutrient-dense superfood shake..
As a Beachbody “coach” you get a 25% discount on all Beachbody products and can also earn a 25% commission on purchases when people select you to be their official Beachbody coach. You also have the option to mentor a team of coaches and earn bonuses when those coaches purchase or sell a certain amount of products.
When you become a Beachbody coach you’re basically opening up your own health and fitness franchise…without the expense and crazy overhead costs! And unlike traditional franchises you also have the opportunity to be rewarded when you help other people build their business which I think is super cool!!
About 85% of people who sign-up to be coaches do so just to get the 25% discount on products. I hear some people say, “I really want to get the discount but don’t want to sell products or start my own business.” That’s totally fine too! There is no monthly penalty if all you want is the discount! You will never be pressured to do anything you don’t want to do.
On the other hand, if you ARE interested in being a representative of the company, the only requirement is that you simply “be proof the products work,” lead by example, and actively inspire and encourage others to get healthy and active. This is fairly easy to do if you are already using Beachbody products and working towards your own fitness goals.
In fact, being a Beachbody coach is a great accountability tool!
A lot of people think in order to become a “coach” they need to be a personal trainer, nutritionist and have a body like Jillian Michaels or Brad Pitt. Not necessary! Beachbody coaches are real people who are going through real struggles in order to reach a goal. That is what being a Beachbody coach is all about! As you work towards your own personal goals you are encouraging and inspiring others to do the same! People are often more inspired by someone who is going through the same struggles as them.
Beachbody already has trainers and nutritional experts on staff that do the hard job of designing the workouts and meal plans. As a coach your job is to simply point people in the right direction and hold them accountable to their goals. For some, the journey never ends! Of course, if you ARE a personal trainer, nutritionist, etc. that’s totally awesome too!
According to TeamBeachbody.com, “Team Beachbody Coaches are here to help you succeed by linking you to all the tools and support you need to achieve your goals. Through accountability and a unique support system, Team Beachbody Coaches help people take charge of their health and transform their bodies and their lives.”
As a coach there are MANY ways to grow your business. Through local fit clubs, hosting challenges on social media, blogging, making YouTube videos, helping non-profit organizations, and simply being proof the products work and sharing your success story with friends and family. As your coach sponsor and mentor I can help direct you on the path that’s right for YOU and get you tapped into all the tools and resources you need to get started and bloom where you’ve been planted!
