Coaching is a unique business opportunity offered by Beachbody, a leading player in the fitness industry. It is an opportunity to create accountability for yourself, motivate others on their fitness journey, and make some money on the side. I often compare it to working for Avon or Pampered Chef, in that you act as a product rep for the incredible workout DVD programs and dietary supplements of Beachbody, but what makes it different is that beyond the "sale" you make a commitment to helping your customers stay motivated. It helps to be an experienced user of Beachbody products, and to have some knowledge of health and fitness, but it certainly isn't required. There are training materials provided for all of the Beachbody products, and being a motivator and positive force is more important than being a certified personal trainer, as long as you are aware of your own limitations, and understand what kind of information you can offer to your customers.
I became a coach in 2010 because I was a graduate of p90x and Insanity, and can emphatically say these programs changed my life! I found myself connecting with people I was meeting on Facebook who were doing p90x and Insanity, and then realized that along the way I was meeting p90x beginners and people who had a lot of questions about the programs. One day I posted something about p90x progress on my facebook page, and three of my friends private messaged me and asked "is it really worth it?" and when I said "yes" they asked "Where can I buy it?" I was on the fence about coaching before that, but then realized that without doing any "work" I had made my first sale. I set up my account, and have enjoyed motivating many more people to get fit since then, as well as earning a significant financial reward for my time!
Plus it's just so much fun! As a coach, I write weekly emails which is always a fun project for me to keep up on the latest fitness news from journals and books I am reading. I've learned as much from my customers about fitness as I have given to them. Connecting with others and helping them get in shape is extremely rewarding for me. I have had people tell me that I make them smile when they were down, that I inspire them to keep pushing play, that I "totally earned the title coach," and even that I helped save someone's life. To me, this is better than any weekly check.
The Nuts and Bolts
-Your only overhead is a $39.95 one time fee up front, and a $15.95 monthly maintenance fee to keep your website and all the amazing web tools and trainings up
-As soon as you sign up, Beachbody sets up three websites for you (five actually, including two in Spanish). You can immediately start directing people to your sites to earn commissions. If you want to start a blog, or website like me I can help you set it up, but that is an extra step.
-There is no inventory or stock that you must purchase monthly - basically, your garage won't be full of p90x's you have to get rid of! Beachbody handles all order processing, shipping, and customer service
-You get 25% off all Beachbody products, and can immediately start earning a 25% commission on any Beachbody products that you sell by referring friends to your store.
-You can work on the ground with people you know, or completely run the business with social networking - it can be a great opportunity to meet new people who have similar interests!
-As you build your business, the company gives you leads, and you can earn bonuses on the good work that other coaches under you (even coaches you didn't personally sign up!) are doing.
-Beachbody does most of the work for you - they spend 100's of millions of dollars on advertising and informercials annually, so products like p90x, Hip Hop Abs, Insanity, and ChaLEAN Extreme are household names!
How much will I make?
If you treat it like a business and act like more than a $15 monthly fee is at stake, you can naturally grow and get to see some major earning potential. I made $150 in my first month, and have progressively made more each month since then. It didn't take long to turn $150 a month to $100-$150 a week, and then several hundred a week. I have therefore been "in the black" the whole time, which to me was a litmus test of it being worth the initial investment. What other investment product is there that has basically a guaranteed return if you follow the gameplan, is only $15 a month, risk-free, and you can CONTROL the outcome by working hard instead of just praying for success with the market? Since then, I have basically doubled my weekly income every 5 months. Click here to see the 2011 Statement of Independent Coach Earnings. No amount of money is guaranteed, but this gives you a sense of what people made last year.
Where does the money come from?
Even without coaching sales, Beachbody makes a big chunk of their profit from sales from the infomercials. Because of this, you know that the company is in good financial shape as it doesn't depend on signing up coaches for income. It also has an A+ rating from the BBB. Coaching is far from a "pyramid scheme" - it is far more sustainable than those upside-down models, since the company itself pays the bonuses, the bonuses don't come out of risky investments of money from new coaches that you sign up. In fact, when I sign up a coach, I don't earn any bonus at all! The only way to earn money from coaches beneath you is if they take it seriously and succeed on their own.
Are you ready to change your life?
-Are you currently using a Beachbody product like p90x, Hip Hop abs, Slim in 6, Insanity, Shakeology, or Turbo Jam?
-Are you loving your results and talking to your friends and relatives about what you are doing?
-Have you inspired someone else to start working out?
-Do you enjoy helping others reach their full potential?
-Do you want to save 25% on Beachbody products?
-Could you use some extra money in your pocket?
If you answered YES to these questions, you are basically already doing all the "work" of coaching! As a coach, you make your own hours, you are your own boss, and the more you put in, the more you get out of it.
Anyone who knows me, knows I don't jump into things that are a waste of time. I did the research and learned that this is a legitimate opportunity! If you want to learn more, there is a 12 minute video about Team Beachbody and Coaching. Also, here is another site from my upline with coaching FAQ's.
