Becoming a Coach
What is a coach?
A Coach is an independent Beachbody representative helping others reach not only their health and fitness goals, but their financial goals as well.
What does it cost to become a coach?
There is a one-time fee to join of $39.95 and a monthly charge of $14.95 to cover the cost of running your business via the Team Beachbody back office. The back office website is the cog of your business, personalized to track your team, your sales, commissions/earnings, and customers as well as providing sales materials, tools, training and more to help you with your business!
How much time do I have to invest as a coach?
There is no set time that you have to spend on being a coach, it depends on you and how successful you want to be. You can coach part time or full time and grow your business at your pace. This truly is a business and must be treated as one. Personally, I spend anywhere from 1 hour to 5 hours a day running my coaching business. Some days are busier than ever – time is spent calling people, answering emails, training, learning, writing blog entries, etc., while other days are not as hectic. The best part about investing the time in my coaching business is that I’m investing in myself and securing my financial future so I don’t have to work for anyone else but myself.
Why should I become a coach?
As an Independent Beachbody Coach you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you are giving back and helping others. It allows you to do something you’re passionate about – and make money doing it. You should become a coach if you want to inspire others and help them to achieve their goals and enjoy a healthy, fulfilling life. There are also other benefits to becoming a coach:
- 25% off all Beachbody products
- Part-time or full-time
- You own your own businsss; You are your own boss; No commute; You set your own hours
- Low start-up cost and unlimited income potential
- No inventory – you are not responsible for inventory or shipping

- Your own personalized Web sites and online store
I just started a Beachbody program, can I still become a coach?
Yes! The earlier you start the earlier you can start earning and succeed. All you need is a passion for the products and the desire to help others.
I don’t have a background in fitness and nutrition, how will I be able to help others?
You don’t need to be a fitness or weight-loss expert to become a Beachbody Coach. You just need to be ready to commit to changing your life and provide encouragement and support to your customers. Over time, you will become more knowledgeable about both Beachbody’s line of products and fitness/nutrition in general. When I started I had a very basic understanding of things and when I got fully immersed in my Beaachbody coaching business I did research and have made myself more knowledgeable. You’ll also have access to your upline coach who can answer questions for you, as well as an entire community of Team Beachbody coaches who are always more than willing to help you.
Do I need to be a slick salesperson?
Not at all—the fact is, just about everybody already wants to get fit or lose weight. And Beachbody products can get them there—there are thousands of real-life Success Stories to prove it! To make money as a Beachbody Coach, all you have to do is let people know that they can finally achieve the health, fitness, and weight-loss goals they’ve dreamed of.
What kinds of help, training and support is there?
Once you become a Beachbody Coach, you’ll be part of a whole network of successful Coaches who are there for you to learn from and share with. You’ll also get full access to your online office, which has everything you need to market and manage your business with ease—including your own sales website and email account, a full set of sales and marketing tools, and extensive training guides and videos. In addition, our Coach Relations team is available to answer your questions via email or over the phone. And you’ll have a Coach of your own for extra motivation and guidance.
Will I have to purchase products for resale?
Unlike marketing programs that require you to buy a lot of products in order to participate, the Coach Opportunity has no inventory requirements. If you do want to purchase products for your own use or resale, you’ll get them at a significant discount.
Who is the company behind the Coach Business Opportunity?
Beachbody is a successful 10-year-old, $250+ million corporation based in Southern California. They create and sell the nation’s most popular in-home fitness and weight-loss products—high-quality, well-manufactured DVD workout programs, gear, and nutritional supplements that have been proven to work. When you become a Beachbody Coach, you’re teaming up with a solid, stable company and a best-selling brand.
How does Beachbody promote its products?
Beachbody spends millions of dollars every week advertising their home fitness programs on the major TV stations and cable networks. (You’ve probably seen their famous infomercials for programs such as P90X, Turbo Jam, and Hip Hop Abs, as well as their magazine and Internet ads.) Millions of people already know about Beachbody, and every time they run an infomercial, they get thousands of new customers. They want those customers to shop through your store, so you get the commission on those sales!
