1. What is the Coaching Opportunity?
It’s an opportunity that allows you to turn your passion for health and fitness, & your fitness journey into income. Get Fit and Get Paid. Let people know what you are doing to increase your dedication and accountability to your health and fitness journey; sharing it in person as well as online. Becoming a Coach is one of the strongest ways to support a healthy lifestyle as well as inspiring others around you to do the same. It also can be an opportunity for you to create your own thriving online business utilizes all the benefits of a billion dollar company that already has a household name. Coaching allows you to create residual income by developing a team of others who want to do this too.
2. What is a Beachbody Coach?
Beachbody refers to their reps as “coaches”. They call them coaches because they are more than just “distributors” or “reps”. Yes, they have the ability to sell and suggest fitness products and workouts, but they also have a vested interest to “coach” the people they are in contact with into a better and healthier way of life. Look at it this way…Some of us, naturally want to help others reach their fitness goals, whether we are compensated or not. I answered questions, and provided information, long before becoming a coach. Now I get to receive some compensation, for what I would do anyway. Pretty cool.
3. Who can be a coach?
ANYONE! You do not need to be invited; you can make this decision yourself and sign up today! We strongly encourage those to join in the coaching business who have a strong desire to reach their deepest goals. This is a home based business, where you act as the “go-to” person, for people wanting to get fit,, need help, or motivation. You don’t need to have certifications, degrees, or years of experience working in the fitness industry to do this. All you need to do, is to continue to be an example yourself and share your successes with others! You can be a fitness professional, in the best shape of your life, or working your way to the best shape of your life….as long as you are committed and dedicated to staying accountable, you can help others become accountable in their goals too!
4. What do I “do” everyday as a coach?
This is up to you! There are no obligations as a Coach and what you do on a daily basis it completely up to your goals, vision, and passion. Everyone signs as a Coach and holds the same opportunity to create income, but you’ll find different “kinds” of Coaches.
1- Coach just for the Discounts
2 – Coach for the Discounts, Accountability, & Helping Inspire others.
3- Part Time Business Building Coach: developing support for those on a fitness journey as well as developing a small team of others doing the same.
4- Full Time Business Coach: Supporting Customers in their fitness journey, Developing a Large team of other coaches in leadership, marketing, branding, and professional skills as an entrepreneur and business owner.
What remains the constant amongst Coaches is that they focus on 4 Vital Behaviors each day.
1- Use products & system for healthy & fit success
2 – Invite others to be included in this opportunity
3 – Personal Development & Quality of Life Betterment
4 – Recognition & involvement of success in others.
You’ll find an average day looks like this: Workout, using Nutritional Products to support healthy meal plan & workouts, Sharing their journey/story, a message, a tip, or information on their social media feeds as well as in person. Checking in with team & company communication. Reading a personal development/professional development book 15 mins a day (or audio). Sending out messages to those interested in products or coaching. Depending on what kind of Coach you want to be- the average amount of time someone spends in their coaching business is approx. 30mins – 1 hour.
5. How do I earn money?
At Coach Status, You can get paid weekly commissions when your customers buy Beachbody products and On Demand memberships through your website. There are multiple streams of bonuses and income generating activities as you create a team and leadership within the company. But in a nutshell: 25% commissions on any customer purchases, Team Bonuses each weekly on your team’s product volume, and Check matching bonuses on your team’s weekly check (team cycle bonus portion).
**Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income. This is all dependent on the effort, level of work, and skill produced by each coach.
6. What do coaches NOT do?
- Force people to buy Beachbody products.
- Judge people based on their fitness experience, physical ability, or lifestyle. — Provide clinical health advice.
- Commute to an office (unless they want to).
- Work a 9 to 5 schedule (again, unless they want to).
7. Do I need to be a salesperson?
Not at all—the fact is, just about everybody already wants to get fit or lose weight. And our products can get them there—we have thousands of real-life Success Stories to prove it! To be a successful coach, is best to NOT try and sell people on products. Be honest. Share your experiences and your journey. All you are doing is offering a possible solution to a problem.
Identifying where you can help someone achieve their goals is best when you are genuinely interested in asking questions and helping support others.

11. How can I fit this in my daily life? I’m already way too busy!
If you are involved in fitness already, this will be a natural fit since you are already fitness minded and focused on helping others each day. This follows what you normally do already! Opportunity always presents itself, and now you’ll just have a way of earning commissions on the programs/products you’ve already been recommending.
If you are not involved in fitness, sharing your fitness journey and offering an avenue to help support others doing the same takes no time at all. You can easily schedule 15 mins on your lunch break to check in with your support group on Facebook & post an update on your wall. On the way home you can listen to the team podcast that will help you develop your business and mindset. After the kids go to bed, you can spend 15 mins responding to emails and sending out some new emails inviting others to join your upcoming challenge group / coaching team. Working out and eating healthy should be a normal part of your day to day, and actually shouldn’t count towards working as a coach.
The extent of how busy you will be directly depends on your decision and vision with what kind of coach you want to be. You can be very aggressive to create a large team & downline of coaches and retail sales. In doing that, that will require a greater amount of time developing your business.
12. Can I cancel anytime?
Yes. You can cancel in your first 30 days, and be completely refunded the first months fees. There is always a 30 day money back guarantee on all products and the coach opportunity. However, if you decide you want to rejoin, you will lose your seniority position and level you were once in the company as well as have to wait a 6 month period from cancellation before you can re-join with a new sponsor coach. If you’d like to rejoin with the same sponsor coach you were with, you can do this at anytime and do not need to wait the 6 month cancellation grace period.

when you sign up as a beachbody coach and if you decided to cancel within the 30 days, do you need to return the starter kit that they will send you? also what is the starter kit for coaching? When you cancel, do you get refunded with the initial fee?
OPTIONAL FEE: Club Membership: $38.87(4 times a year total- billed quarterly)
• As a club member, you will have access to additional fitness and nutritional programs available to you on your webpage.
Can you give me an idea or an overview of what additional workouts when you sign up for the club membership?
Thank you very much for your help!
I signed up to be a coach back in 2007…. so I imagine the starter kit has changed. I suspect it contains items explaining the business, compensation, business tips, etc. I can’t imagine Beachbody would ask that this be returned. If you cancel within 30 days, you will receive a refund. The Club is gone now (I also updated the FAQ), it was replaced with Beachbody on Demand (BOD). BOD is a streaming service where you can stream all of the Beachbody workouts. It’s very cool. More information here. There is a 3 month, 6 month, and 1 year plan. Hope this helps!
