Becoming a Coach
As I went through my first round of P90X, becoming a coach was the last thing on my mind. However, my coach pointed out that I should consider being a coach to save money on my own purchases (I was on Shakeology Home Direct, so by becoming a coach I would actually save money each month). I still didn’t know if I wanted to dive into coaching until I neared the end of my P90X journey and started to develop a true passion for how amazing this program works. All my friends were asking me what kind of workout I was doing, so I found myself talking about P90X and Insanity all the time. Then, when they see my transformation, I was literally bombarded with questions about what worked/didn’t work for me, and I saw the opportunity to really help others catch my passion for P90X, Insanity and other Beachbody programs. Plus, by becoming a coach, I am now accountable to keep pushing play, keep getting more RIPPED, and keep setting a good example for my players. I can’t get lazy when I’ve got all of you looking up to me!! If you are passionate about P90X and Insanity, want to help others with the program, and are willing to be accountable as a coach to keep BRINGING IT, then I encourage you to consider coaching.
There is an initial $39.95 fee and then a monthly charge of $15.95 for your back office. The back office is a website that Beachbody provides for you that keeps track of your sales, team sales, customers, commissions, as well as some training, sales tools, and much more. The fee also covers 3 free customer-facing websites that Beachbody will maintain for you.
The amount of time you spend is completely up to you. It just depends on what kind of coach you want to be. You can be a coach simply for the purpose of saving money on your own products (for example, if you currently use Shakeology, the amount you save on your Shakeology purchase each month is more than the monthly fee to be a coach, so you’ll already be ahead!). Or, if you want to make the investment of time to turn your coaching into a great part-time (or even full time) business, Beachbody is the perfect way to do that. You are a product of the system, and your own results are a walking, talking advertisement that will bring people to you! Plus, you are backed by Beachbody’s multi-million dollar advertising budget.
Some of the benefits of becoming an Independent Beachbody Coach include:
- You have the opportunity to help others get into shape and live a healthier lifestyle.
- You receive 25% off all Beachbody products.
- You have built in accountability to keep BRINGING IT since you are leading others! Talk about motivation. As your coach, I know that I have to lead by example!
- You get your own personalized website/store.
- You are not responsible for shipping or inventory.
- You have unlimited income potential.
- You are a personal business owner.
- You have the opportunity to purchase the Showcase Package.
This is a great way to get a whole collection of popular Beachbody workout programs for one low cost. For just $199, you can purchase a collection of Beachbody workout programs that normally costs over $400!
The programs included are Turbo Jam, Power 90, Slim in 6, Yoga Booty Ballet, Hip Hop Abs, and P90X. You will also receive a set of B-Lines Resistance Bands and a YBB Squishy Ball. (As a note of comparison: the retail price of P90X is $119.85 plus S&H, and for just $80 more, you can have 5 more programs!)
No! You have to have a passion for helping others and the desire to succeed. The earlier you start, the better. Having a great transformation is just the icing on the cake, because my coaching business has literally exploded due to the response to my transformation. Let that keep you motivated as you go through the program (Tell yourself that you can literally turn your results into a profitable business! That might give you the extra incentive to Bring It!!)
You don’t have to be a fitness expert to be a coach. I wasn’t when I first started. I’ve done a lot of research over the past year and a half to learn as much as I could about fitness. The best time to start is NOW!
Beachbody has an excellent training program called the Game Plan, which you will need to understand when you sign up to coach.
Our team has also created our own step-by-step training program to provide you the knowledge to be a successful coach. We cannot be successful without first helping you to be successful.
