What is Beachbody Coaching???
This job is all about helping other people succeed. We are a team that is here to truly and deeply just help other people get healthy and in shape. We focus on our challengers getting results by teaching them clean eating, meal planning, meal prep, and giving them daily support and accountability. Your success is not related to selling things to others… it is ALL about HELPING other people succeed!
We are a very unique team in Beachbody for this reason. We run a lot of free groups and are always sharing information of value to improve the lives of others. Even if you are not familiar with clean eating or meal planning now you soon will be. Our priority is to lead from the front… focusing on our own health and fitness first so that we can share our knowledge with others. Coaching will keep you accountable to your own health and fitness goals.
So how does this career focused on helping others lead to compensation???
So you may be wondering how would some people have been able to leave their nursing, social work, and medical sales careers in 6-8 months….While 25% commission is something that is important as well as a big part of your paycheck in the beginning, as you begin to advance in rank you’ll quickly discover that the team bonuses are what makes up the largest percentage of your check. Team bonuses are calculated by what other coaches on the team are producing. This is great news for you because of the amount of growth our team is experiencing. (Being on the TOP 2 teams of BEACHBODY has AMAZING Perks)
Our ability to put coaches under you to help you bonus more quickly takes the pressure off having to make sales to make money. Another beautiful bonus of working for Beachbody. There are also various incentive programs such as Success Club which further increase earning opportunities and count toward many of our reward trips and vacations.
Wondering now how to sign up as a coach???
First of all…
You do not need to purchase Shakeology to become a Coach. The Coaching fees are set at $39.99 to start up (waived for Active military or with Challenge Pack purchases) and are $15.95 a month after that. This monthly fee covers the hosting and maintenance of THREE websites Beachbody provides, access to your Online Office, and an online Subscription to Success Magazine. The $39.99 sign-up fee covers the start up cost for the websites and a Business Starter Kit for you, and shows Beachbody that you’re serious about the coaching opportunity. People that invest in themselves are that much more likely to succeed because of their investment.
MOST coaches do, however, use Shakeology daily, being that true product of the product. You get it at a 25% discount, plus this makes you an “Active” ranked Coach. Becoming Active is a rank advancement that opens you up to opportunities such as qualifying for success club, bonuses, and starts your coaching off on the right foot.
NOTE: If you or your SPOUSE is active military, Beachbody takes great pride in rewarding our soldiers by waiving all start up cost and coach fees. It’s a simple way to give back and say THANK you for everything you do!
So, in summary, there are 3 options for becoming a coach, and you can chat with your coach about what works best for you.
- Option 1 is to become a coach for the $39.99 sign-up fee and that’s it. Again, while this would make you a Coach, you would be “inactive”…meaning you are ineligible for commissions and incentives. (You need 50 points of “volume” to become active).
- Option 2 would be to become a coach for $39.99 and order Shakeology at the time of sign-up. This would make you active and eligible for all commissions and incentive programs. The Shakeology WOULD be discounted 25% at the time of sign-up.
- Option 3 would be to sign up with a Challenge Pack. This WAIVES the $39.99 sign-up fee to become a coach, and gives you a fitness program AND Shakeology at a significant discount. As far as “Bang for your Buck,” this is the way to go.
So, now you’re signed up…but how do you succeed?
In the beginning, it’s important to note that this is a business. Your service is valuable, just like teachers, counselors, trainers, nurses, the list goes on and on. We help people because we care, but we shouldn’t feel guilt that the service we provide is worth something. Because it is! It’s very valuable! YOU are very valuable and you have a lot to offer. Though it rarely feels like work, you make your own schedule and you have FUN 90% of the time.. the fact is, the business side of it can be frustrating if you aren’t moving as quickly as you like. It’s important to remember that consistency is KEY, having an “I WILL DO THIS” attitude and overcoming any hurdles in your path will be your saving grace.
I’ve also noticed, the coaches that keep in contact with THEIR coaches, keep them up to date, and actively participate in the Coaches-Only Group are the coaches that end up having the strongest teams, the continued growth, and end up REALLY making a difference in this business. Those that teeter around, can’t commit 100% and don’t keep in contact with their coach struggle. Remember to ALWAYS include your coach in what you’re going through. If you’re struggling in certain areas TELL THEM! We guarantee your coach has dealt with AND overcome exactly what you’re going through. Otherwise they wouldn’t be where they are. It’s up to YOU to communicate with your coach and ask for help when needed. We do our best to keep track of your progress, help you with your goals, and support your team groups, but it requires you keeping us informed on where you are and what you need. Don’t be SHY!
Coaching can sometimes be a roller coaster ride, and if you can keep that focus and your “WHY” in the headlights, you will be able to overcome anything that comes up. The trials that we face as coaches are nothing compared to the triumphs. The trials come not from lack of dedication, motivation, or determination but because some of this business relies on other people. Having patience is a coveted virtue and something that we all need to work on continually as we help our customers change their lifestyles. It’s not an overnight process to change your entire diet/exercise habits just like coaching isn’t an overnight success all the time. The reality is, if you decide to commit, you will succeed!
