What will it cost to become a beachbody coach?
We want to lay it all out for you, so that you can make good decisions and aren’t surprised with anything! I am a numbers girl and I make choices based off of logistics… I know for me, not knowing all the costs is frustrating, so I like have it all laid out in front of me.
One of the things we love about Beachbody is that the cost to join to get the discounts, and to possibly start a successful business, is minimal. The monthly fees are low. Many times when doing a startup like this, there is a huge up front investment to get the discounts, but Beachbody doesn’t do that. You don’t have to pay up front for a ton of product, you don’t have to make a large investment, you just have to pay a monthly fee, which, if you use Shakeology, becomes a discount towards your shakeology each month. You can’t loose!
Below is the down-low of the cost to become a Beachbody coach, whether it be just for the discounts, or to make it a business.
There are a few options on how to get started as a coach.
Option 1 (a) – Discount only Coach
This option is for those that simply want to purchase Beachbody products, such as Shakeology, at the wholesale price. The wholesale price is 25% off of retail and shipping is considerably less. This option results in about $15 a month savings over purchasing Shakeology at the retail price.
With this option, you also have the opportunity to earn extra income by helping your friends, family, and others purchase Beachbody programs or Shakeology using your coaching affiliate website.
The cost for this option is a one time $39.95 sign-up fee and then $15.95 per month after that. However, you will receive an approximate $35 monthly discount on your Shaveology orders.
Option 1 (b) – Discount + Helping People Coach
This option is essentially the same as option 1 (a). However, there is a different mindset from the start. With this option, you are wanting to use the Beachbody Coaching Program to build a business and support team. There are the same costs as option 1 (a) apply – $39.95 set-up fee and $15.95 per month after that.
The difference in mindset happens because you will actively be focusing on helping customers. Building your business will lead to reach EMERALD COACH status. Once you reach this status, other fees may apply, but are not required.
Option 2 – Challenge Pack Discount Coach
If you purchase a CHALLENGE PACK during the coach sign-up process, the one time $39.95 fee is waived. The price of each challenge pack varies ($140-$350) depending on what workout(s) and nutrition program you choose.
The challenge pack is a wonderful option because it gives you everything needed to start your new business:
- A new fitness program to jump start or continue your journey and start a Challenge Group
- 30 days of Shakeology
- 30 days free trial in the Team Beachbody membership
- Online streaming of your new fitness program
- Discounted shipping
When combined with new coach sign-up, the challenge pack option waives the one-time set-up fee and locks in 25% discount on Shakeology order and discounted shipping. It also locks in 25% savings on future fitness program purchases.
What Does the $15.95 Monthly Fee Pay For?
The monthly fee, in the options above, gives you access to the Beachbody Coach “Back Office”. This is where you will find a wealth of self-guided training options, marketing materials for your use, Challenge Group Guides, and an email program for promoting your business and keeping track of your customers.
This is your Business! What Do You Envision?
Use your Coach status just for your own discount.
Use your Coach status as an affiliate type program. You will earn 25% of every sale you refer. You do not need to start building a team of other coaches.
Use your Coach status to build a team of other coaches. This the best way for you to exponentially increase both your ability to help others and your revenue. It is not anything you are required to do.
