FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT COACHING…
1. What Do Coaches Do?
As a Beachbody coach, we help people reach reach their health and fitness goals. It is our job to provide support, motivation, and inspiration to SHOW people what is possible. Many coaches do this through the use of private Facebook groups because it is a great way to connect with others, to stay accountable to more than yourself, and to support each other along the way.
2. Is this a Pyramid Scheme?
First, Pyramid Schemes are illegal. If Beachbody coaching were a pyramid scheme they would be out of business. They are a well established company that has had the most #1 fitness infomercials to date. They are known for world class fitness programs and offer the best product in the fitness industry! Our brand is recognized around the world! Just ask anyone if they’ve ever heard of P90X, Insanity, TurboJam, etc. I’m sure a majority will know exactly what you are talking about. They are a company that operates with great integrity and as a results as grown its annual revenue over $5 million per year.
Beachbody is one of the top multi-level marketing companies and gives you the opportunity earn commissions and team bonuses regardless of your position within the organization.
3. What are the benefits of coaching?
As a Beachbody Coach, you are rewarded for helping others reach their goals but by doing so you are also getting fit and staying healthy too. Plus, when signing up, you receive an additional 25% off all products, including Shakeology and you EARN 25% commission on all sales. Plus, as you build your team, you earn team cycle bonuses which increases your income and creates residual income for years to come.
One of the greatest benefits of coaching is being part of an incredible community of individuals that are striving to be their best each and every day, that are passionate and driven individuals who support one another and are willing to help you succeed along the way!
4. How much can I earn as a coach?
The beauty of this business is that YOU own it. From the day you sign up, you get to determine which direction you take and the income you want to make over time. Whether it is signing up for the discount, having supplementary income, or growing it into a full time career making 6 figures or more, you can achieve whatever it is that you want with this business. There are coaches that set out and are making an extra $500/month and there are coaches that have completely replaced their full-time income from their job. The sky is the limit! I was able to leave my corporate career of 12 years to pursue my passion for coaching after 14 months of being a coach. I now set my own schedule, work from home, have more quality time with my family, and have a lot more freedom to do what I need to as a self-employed entrepreneur! I truly believe ANYONE can be successful as a coach but it’s up to the individual to do what it takes to make it happen.
5. How much does it cost to become a coach?
There is a one time start up fee of $39.95. After your first month as a coach, the monthly business service fee is $15.95/month. This service fee is basically to provide you with all of the underlying infrastructure needed to operate your business (ie. personalized websites, transactional services, customer service, training tools, coaching tools, inventory and shipping etc.)
NOTE: These fees are WAIVED for all Active Military and those Wounded in Action.
You can also have the coach sign-up fee ($39.95) waived by ordering a Challenge Pack. Challenge packs are fitness programs that are bundled with Shakeology for a discount of $30-$90! It’s a great what to save money and sign up all at once.
6. Do I need to be a fitness professional or at my ideal weight?
Contrary to what many believe, you do not need to be a certified personal trainer, nutritionist, dietician, or have any advanced degrees or education to become a coach. You just need to have PASSION for helping others!
In addition, there are no “ideal” coaches. There are so many people out there that will relate to you regardless of where you are personally in your fitness journey. Just sharing your story and journey with others will inspire people to take action and that is EXACTLY what we do as coaches! People want to see that you are putting in an effort and making healthy life choices. They want to see you be consistent and when the results come, which they will, they will want to know exactly what it was you did to make it happen and will want to join you along the way!
7. Do I have to be a Salesperson? Are there minimum sales requirements each month?
No. Believe me, if you did, I wouldn’t be a coach. I actually do not like selling at all. As coaches, we SHARE our journey, we talk to people, we build relationships and as a result, we sell programs that help bridge the gap between a person and their fitness and nutrition goals. We are not walking door to door asking people to try our latest shake and to burn up a sweat with us in the lawn (though that would be funny). We share our story and simply invite others to join us.
There are no required minimum sales to be a coach. Some coaches decide to join merely for the discount and other have bigger dreams of building a 6-figure income. It’s all up to you what you do and don’t do with this business.
