Beachbody Coach FAQ
1. What do I do as a Coach?
As a Beachbody coach, you’ll support and motivate others to reach their health and fitness goals as you work on your own. The Beachbody programs we provide give guidance on the meal plans and help them with their fitness through at-home workouts. You will support them in their programs so that they can achieve the results they want and help them troubleshoot things when they have issues. Most coaches use private Facebook groups to support others online. It’s fun to connect with others and support them on their journeys.
You do not need to be a certified personal trainer, nutritionist or have any special degrees to be a coach. You only need to have a passion for helping others and working on yourself to get healthy and fit!

3. Do I need to be at my goal-weight to be a coach?
If you are working on your own fitness journey, you can be a coach! People will see that you are putting in effort and making healthy life choices. They will respect you for that and ask you what you are doing! This is the perfect opportunity to invite them along for your journey.
People will relate to you because of who you are and the changes you are making. So, it’s just about making progress, working on your own goals, and inviting others to join you in your journey. We all get better results when we have support and accountability.
4. How much does it cost to get started as a coach?
The coaching start-up fee is $39.95. After your first month as a coach, the monthly business fee is $15.95 a month. There are no annual fees. Note that these fees are waived for active military and those wounded in action.
Your coach fees give you personalized websites (your own online stores), an email account, access to Beachbody marketing materials, a Coach Online Office, and personal development tools. Beachbody also handles all inventory, shipping and customer service for your growing business.
Note that you can waive the coach sign-up fee by ordering a bundled Challenge Pack. This includes a fitness program and Shakeology with a discount of $30-$90! Not only that, but you’ll save $39.95 when you sign-up with a Challenge Pack. It’s definitely the best deal and the majority of coaches choose this option. It’s important to be using the products yourself so you can share what you are doing. So, that’s the perfect way to sign up!
5. How much money can I earn?
As a business owner, you will determine the income you want to make. Whether you want to make an extra $500/month to pay off bills or completely replace the income from your job, you can achieve whatever goals you set. I was able to quit my full-time job after 14 months in the business. Coaching allows me to work from home, have freedom with my schedule, and spend more time with my family.
6. How do I build my business? What if I don’t know very many people?
As a coach, you will get training on how to build your business. You can do this through social media, online, personal relationships, community groups, local fit clubs, and face-to-face meetings. Even if you do not know many people, we will train you on how to grow and expand your network. One thing that is unique about me is that I’ve grown 98% of my business through social media. I now have a network of over 10,000 people and I will train you on how to use social media to find people who are looking for fitness solutions.
7. Is this a pyramid scheme or a scam?
No it’s not. Beachbody has been around for over 14 years and it’s a well-established company with high ratings with the Better Business Bureau. Beachbody has had the most #1 fitness infomercials and it offers the best fitness programs in the industry. Our programs are recognized around the world and most people know about P90x, Insanity and our other programs. Beachbody’s annual revenue is over $500,000,000 per year and this is only expected to grow.
Beachbody is one of the top multi-level marketing companies and gives you the opportunity earn commissions and team bonuses.
8. Do I have to be a sales person and are their minimum sales requirements?
I actually do not like selling at all! So, I’m really glad that I don’t have to be a salesperson to be successful. As coaches, we do not sell. We share. We share information with others about what’s working for us with fitness and nutrition and the business opportunity. With our challenge groups, we share what we are doing and simply invite people to join us!
When you go to a restaurant or movie, do you ever share what you thought of it with others? If you liked it, would you suggest that they go to the restaurant or see the movie? See, that’s not selling for the restaurant or movie…it’s sharing something that you think would be beneficial to others. So, that’s what we do as coaches. It’s really up to them as to what they do with what you shared and whether they want to be a part of it.
There are no required minimum sales requirements to be a coach. Some coaches just do it for the discount on their own fitness programs and Shakeology while others have a goal to build a 6-figure income.
If you are ready to join a team with integrity and a passion for helping others while working on your own journey, do not hesitate to join us. We are looking forward to welcoming you. It’s time to take control of your health your fitness and your finance.
9. How much time does coaching take?
As a coach, you own your own business. So, it’s entirely up to you how much time you spend and how fast you want to build your business. Most coaches who want to earn an income spend between 30 minutes – 2 hours per day. As your sponsoring coach, I’ll help you set goals and determine how much time you want to invest in the business to reach your goals.
Most of us are very busy and are concerned about finding the time. My concern as a new coach was how I would find the time as a busy, working mom. However, my coach helped me identify how to shift my schedule so that I could build the business to replace my full-time income while working full-time. Now, my schedule is completely under my control and I can spend time with my family whenever I need to.
