This week, my team hosted a sneak peek where we shared in a private closed group what the coach life is and what being a Team Beachbody coach is all about. I get asked all the time what it is I actually do and how do I make money doing it? Is what I do one of those scams or pyramid schemes? I totally get it. I would be skeptical too had I not been part of an online fitness accountability group before I became a coach.
I grew up all my life being told that education was the key to get into a great college, then land a great paying job after college, and then start a happy family. I graduated college, but the pay was not there in my job. My world was crumbling and everything I have been taught to go to school and get a great paying job was invalid. Five years after college, I started to get really depressed because I was still doing the same thing. I wasn’t growing, I wasn’t being challenged, and I was still drowning in credit card bills and living paycheck to paycheck. I feared the future until I saw the coaching opportunity.
I’ve decided to try something new and walk you through our entire coaching revealed group in this blog post so you can get all the details about coaching.
My story with Beachbody:
This job is all about helping other people succeed. Our goal is to ADD VALUE and help people to grow closer to their goals, be that PHYSICAL, MENTAL, SPIRITUAL, and/or FINANCIAL. We focus on our clients getting results by teaching them healthy eating, meal planning, meal prep, and giving them daily support and accountability. Your success is not related to selling things to others… it is ALL about HELPING other people succeed!
Please watch this first video about myself, as well as give you a glimpse into what coaching has done for me!
What is a coach & what do we do:
So first of all a Beachbody coach is a normal person. You don’t have to be a personal trainer, a fitness expert, a nutritionist, or even be at your goal weight to be a coach. You are someone that is passionate about change, you want to inspire others to lead healthy and fulfilling lives, you are practicing what you preach and you lead by example. You can be starting your journey today or you could have been on your journey for months or years, no matter where you are in life you can be a coach.
As a coach we run what is called “CHALLENGE GROUPS,” I like to call them health and fitness accountability groups. In these closed groups, no one but the members of the group can see what is being posted. We use the Beachbody My Challenger app for the groups. Each day my customers check into the group, I have a post of the day that walks them first thru taking their pictures, measurements, setting goals and meal planning and prep.
Then for the entire duration of their fitness program they check in daily where I post motivation, support, tips, recipes and things that have personally helped me in my journey.
Each participant checks in daily and rates their day, discusses anything on their mind and together we have fun. As a coach you do not have to run your first group on your own. You actually will co run it with me! There is also a challenge group guide that we have created for our team that you can use! So the system is in place, you just duplicate it with your own flair.
It’s fun, it keeps you and your clients accountable and it’s the most rewarding feeling ever to see your first few customers get results!
Check out this video with more on what is a coach and what we do.
Check out our team member Bonnie’s story:
This is an IMPORTANT ONE – because I know these questions have to be on the minds of some people!
Excited to share the truth about many objections in this business including:
- Is this is a pyramid scheme?
- What if I’m not at my goal weight.
- What if I’m not a salesperson.
Ever thought to yourself: Being a coach sounds like it would be GREAT, but I am NOT a SALESPERSON and nor do I want to be.
I want you to watch the video below and then I want you to realize, in a way… Ya kinda are! We ALL are!
I mean, have you ever gone to a restaurant and had a phenomenal meal, only to rave about it to your friends?!
Or what about trying a new product out, loved it, and then blasted it on social media!
We, as a culture, LOVE sharing our opinions! It’s the reason why sites like YELP and Trip Advisor are so HUGE! <—- Which also reminds me to mention, we also LOVE reading the opinions and experiences of our friends. It helps us to better gage our decision on whether or not we are going to try something out.
If I am about to go to a restaurant I’ve never been to before, I go on YELP and check out the reviews.
Think of yourself as the YELP for at home fitness. You are a customer who is sharing your experiences openly and honestly.
EXCEPT unlike YELP, you will actually go to “the restaurant” with them and ensure they have a positive experience! (AKA, challenge groups.)
Sure, you make a 25% commission from them buying with YOU, but that’s nothing to feel guilty about. They benefit TOO! Not only do you walk them through the program offering support and accountability, but when they purchase through a coach they get a bonus workout dvd and when purchasing a challenge pack, they can save between 25-30% off retail price! In my opinion, that’s a WIN-WIN for both parties!
I know the word SALES scares people, but what I hope you can see after reading and watching the video below is that there isn’t going to be some BIG JUMP from where you are today to where you are as a coach!
Just more accountability and opportunity for you to share your journey and impact the lives of those around you!
Coach Training & Social Media
Our team is part of the #1 team in the entire Team Beachbody Network! It has been a PRIORITY since the beginning of my journey to provide thorough, duplicable, quality new coach training to my team so that I know that I am giving them thee ABSOLUTE BEST possible chance at SUCCESS!
Because of the focus our leaders put on learning and then SIMPLIFYING things for future generations, we have created a system of duplication that has caused coaches to go from novice to expert in LESS THAN ½ the time it took ME as a new coach! Exciting stuff, right!? Especially when you realize that as a new coach on our team, you and YOUR future team will have access to all of my information, tips, curriculums, scripts and more!
We are one of the most successful and fastest growing teams in Beachbody and I feel that is because we work together as a family, offering you support with your challengers & new coaches to help you get going, keep them active, and answer questions that you may need assistance with. We have a private coach group that is your go-to place for any questions you may have or support you may need. You are allowed to use any documents, contests, information, posts, etc. that any of us coaches have used to be inspired by and make them as your own. This allows for LITTLE leg work in the beginning and allows you to focus on building your team as the details are taken care of.
THE KEY TO SUCCESS in this business is DUPLICATION!
You will receive online and over the phone training with me, as well as access to our exclusive team training website. I will help you every step of the way.
Please watch this story by my upline Lindsay:
Ok so this is always the biggest question when it comes to coaching. How do I make money?!
Well you earn a 25% commission off of everything that people purchase through your website. You also earn a weekly bonus from your future team of coaches. I know it all sounds a little abstract, but lets break it down.
So I have 3-5 new challengers in my challenge group this month.
I earn commission from each of their purchases.
Then 1 of my customers has amazing results and starts sharing that with her friends and family. She decides to become a coach and I help her start a challenge group. Now, everything that my customer who is now a coach sells is reflected as volume for me. And every time I hit a certain volume I get a bonus and this happens weekly. So the more successful your challengers are, the more successful your coaches are, the more cycles you earn! It is something that took me about 6 months to understand, but the bottom line is this:
If you focus on truly helping people get results and you care about them as a person then you will have success and be financially rewarded. The beauty of this business is that it’s not about how many people you sign up, its about how many people that you truly and deeply help! That’s why I love coaching!
As you get higher up in your business you can earn quarterly bonuses, elite bonuses, the success club trip which last year was to Cancun and this year was a cruise. There are so many opportunities to advance that you can truly make this your full time career if you choose!
Here is a breakdown of my very own paycheck.
Check out Amy’s story:
Can I be a coach?
I know some of you have been wondering… AM I CUT OUT TO BE A COACH?!?!
Watch this video and see WHO really makes a GOOD COACH and if that includes YOU!
What does it cost to become a coach??
Whether you are looking to SAVE MONEY on your Beachbody products or EARN MONEY as an additional income, here’s the scoop for you!
So, much to your excitement, let’s take a minute to discuss the financial side of the business!
- Start-Up Cost: To sign up to become a Beachbody coach, there is a one-time $39.95 fee. However, this fee is completely waived when you purchase a challenge pack, which is a combo of a fitness program with Shakeology (Plus, it’s cheaper this way, and it only makes sense to buy so you can be a product of the product).
- Monthly Costs:
– Coaches that work this business or become a coach for this discount (known as Discount Coach) typically drink Shakeology each day! With the 25% coach discount, Shakeology comes to $97.50.
– There is a Coach Fee of $15.95 each month, which includes 3 business websites of your own and 24/7 Coach Relations Services, which comes in handy, a lot! (**All Coaches Must Pay – no matter discount or actively working)
– (Optional) Club Membership is available for $39.95 every 3 months (quarter). This now includes access to our AMAZING NEW ‘Beachbody On Demand’, offering over $4,000 worth of workouts at your fingertips to stream over the internet!
*** TO RECAP — if you are thinking of joining as a DISCOUNT Coach, your monthly fee of $15.95 + $97.50 for Shakeology is about $17 less than the $130 retail price for Shakeology!** #score
- Savings: Coaches receive 25% off all products including supplements, programs, and Shakeology (ex: Focus T25 is $90 instead of customer price $120). We also get access to the products first before they are released to the general public.
- Commissions: Team Beachbody sends paychecks weekly on Thursdays via direct deposit or check to all coaches. Coaches earn 25% commission on all retail sales. Finally, there are weekly team volume bonuses and matching team bonuses that are based off of the product sales of those in your organization (coaches you sponsor). All of this can quickly add up to a nice Thursday Pay Day —- just imagine how awesome it would be to get an extra $100, $500, or even $1,000 deposited into your checking account THIS THURSDAY!
- Military Discounts: If you or your spouse is actively in the military, you are eligible for additional discounts through Beachbody! Upon sending proof to Beachbody of duty active status (quick fax or email), the start-up cost of $39.95 is waived completely for your business, along with the $15.95 monthly service fee that is charged to regular coaches. If you are a veteran, your fee is also waived. Unlike regular coaches, you are also only required to place a Shakeology order every three months instead of every month. Not that you shouldn’t be drinking your shakes to stay healthy and on track, but it could help when money is tight!
In terms of EARNING POTENTIAL, honestly you get out what you put in. This is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme, I can promise you that. On our team, we set a goal for each coach to help 3 people in their first month of business. Right away, this would cover the cost of your monthly Shakeology and is VERY doable, meaning you get to get healthy and trim for FREE! #scoreagain
From there, there is LIMITLESS potential! The goals you set and the time you put in will determine your income. For example (though each coach is different), it is not unrealistic to be earning more than $500-$1000 a month in 6 months or less. Putting in one to two solid hours per day could absolutely get you there! Isn’t that wild!?!?! I think so, and I think it’s darn cool too!
I want to ask you a question… If one thing was holding you back from taking advantage of this opportunity what would it be? And for a second I want to play “WHAT IF” with me…
WHAT IF you became a COACH? What if you never made a penny, but you got healthier and in the best shape of your life? What if you started drinking Shakeology for a discount? What if you started to feel better, feeling present in your family’s life, having more energy and just feeling alive? Would it be worth it?
What if you shared Beachbody with a friend that is a diabetic, depressed or going on the downward spiral and waiting for someone to reach out to help them, to notice them…they aren’t just in the right place to get started on their own. They are defeated. You are that person and you just reach out and play a big part in changing their life. Would be worth it?
What if you gave this 100% and committed to doing whatever it takes. You do the small consistent tasks daily no matter what’s going on in your life because you are not only doing something better but you know it’s out there and you are determined to get it. You commit to be here a year from now…you have big dreams and this is an amazing outlet to get you there. You do the 3 vital behaviors because you know you are destined for greatness. In two years you are making a 6 figure income helping people feeling blessed, humble and thankful. Would it be worth it?
What if you forget about it? Coaching thing is not for me…whatever the reason…you just don’t want to do it. You don’t have to…but I challenge you today to think about the things in your life that make you unhappy and miserable…what are you doing about them? 5 years from now will you be having the same bad day? Overworked, underpaid and stressed? What if you did something else. Would it be worth it?
Today is the day to make a decision. Fill out the coaching form below if you are ready to coach or have any questions. I would love for you to join the team!
