Frequently Asked Questions about the Coaching Opportunity
A: About 4 years ago Beachbody decided to create a direct sales marketing opportunity for people who wanted to help others get in shape. They believed that anyone would have a better chance to succeed with Beachbody programs like P90X, Insanity, Chalean Extreme, and P90X2 with support from a coach. The coaches would then earn a commission on any Beachbody products purchased by their customers through www.teambeachbody.com. Since then many people including Coach Astrid have been able to turn this into a full-time job. You have the same opportunity!
Q: What are the responsibilities of a Team Beachbody coach?
A: As a coach it’s your responsibility to motivate and support your customers while they complete a Beachbody program. Ultimately, Team Beachbody coaches are role models, motivators, and even life coaches for their customers. Naturally, becoming a coach would give you a reason to stay on track with your own fitness.
Q: Is the Beachbody coaching opportunity a scam?
A: No, it’s not a scam. In fact, it’s far from it! Believe it or not, Coach Astrid was skeptical when she was first introduced to it, but found it to be a legitimate opportunity after thorough research. Team Beachbody coaches help change people’s lives and the many success stories really speak fro themselves. Coaches build relationships with their clients and team of coachees. After 1.5 years in the business, I have met tons of great people within the Team Beachbody community.
Q: How much does it cost to be a coach?
A: Signing up as coach is very affordable with an initial sign up fee of only $39.95. From your second month as coach onward you will have to pay a website maintenance fee of $14.95 a month. This fee covers the unlimited use of the Coach online office to keep track of your sales and team volume, as well as manage your customer base. It also provides excellent online training and vital information on company promotions. You will also get five websites that are built and maintained by Beachbody to promote your personal coaching business online (English and Spanish versions).
Q: How much time do you have to dedicate to become a successful coach?
A: The amount of time you spend building your business is completely up to you. The more time and effort you put into it, the faster your business will grow. Even if you only put in 30 min per day on getting exposure and talking to customers, you could do well in the business. You should know that exposing people to Beachbody products shouldn’t be a chore; you should have the mentality that you’re ‘sharing’ health and fitness tips with others.
Q: Can you be a full-time Team Beachbody Coach?
A: Yes, you can. I did it part time for about 1 year on top of my full time job. But after I realized that I could make a living off my business alone, I decided to resign from my J-O-B to pursue my passion as Team Beachbody coach.
Q: Do I need to have great transformation results to be a coach?
A: No! You only need to have a passion for improving your own fitness and helping others. Stay on the path of self-improvement so that you can become a better, healthier version of yourself. Of course you can always use other coaches’ success stories as example, too.
Q: Do I have to have great results to be successful in this business and make significant side income ?
A: No! It is a business after-all, and as long as you have great work ethics and willing to learn, you will be successful. However, keep in mind that as a coach, you’re a role model to your team, so it is recommended to live a healthy lifestyle.
Q: What if I’m not a good salesperson?
A: I don’t feel this is a sales job. In fact, I’ve never actually tried to “sell” anything yet. The way I run my business is by recommending products that I have used and have worked for me. Because of my confidence in these products, I have no problem recommending them to others, and people are always looking for products that will help them lose weight and get into shape! Also, Beachbody knows that the majority of coaches are not from a sales background, which is why corporate created several 3rd party/marketing tools that you can use to let them do the presentation and the talking about the products for you. All you need to do is share your Beachbody experience with others and become the “messenger” rather than the “message”.
Q: Do I have to have a ton of knowledge about diet, supplements, and workouts to be a Team Beachbody coach?
A: No, not at all! You just have to know about the different Beachbody products so that you can help others successfully complete a workout program. Your main goal is to support and motivate people throughout the program! Remember, you could be very successful as long as you know how to utilize all marketing resources. No one knows everything. That’s why you can always rely on your upline team for help.
Q: Can you set up a call for Astrid to answer specific questions about the opportunity?
A: Yes. In fact, this is something that I highly encourage you to do so that you know exactly what’s involved before you get signed up. If you want to set up a call or chat please use the contact form on the bottom of the page.
Q: How do I sign up to become a Beachbody Coach?
A: If you don’t have any questions AND don’t already have a Beachbody account, you can get signed up by clicking below. (Make sure you see this: “COACHASTRID Will Be Your Team Beachbody Coach.”)
1. With the 25% coaches discount, your savings on products more than make up for the $14.95 monthly fee. For example, if you purchase vitamins (Activit, Omega 3, Calcium), supplements (P90X Recovery and Results Formula or whey protein) and/or use Shakeology, the discount on that more than makes up for the $14.95.
2. You really DO change lives as Team Beachbody coach. It is so rewarding to help people help themselves. Sometimes you have to believe in them before they believe in themselves, but once they see results–it is fantastic!
3. Nothing will do more for your own motivation than becoming a coach. When you put yourself in the position of being a role model, you WANT to be that person. It is another great way to hold yourself accountable.
Even if you are just starting your fitness journey, you will see yourself as being healthier because you are a fitness coach. Other people will notice that you are putting in an effort and making a lifestyle change. Whether you have lost 5 pounds or 105 pounds, friends and family will look at the effort you are making at becoming a healthy role model and respect you for that.
A mistake some people make is that they think “I can’t be a coach because I haven’t lost much weight yet.” Many people will relate to you just the way you are. Most people struggle to push play and eat healthfully. People will look up to you precisely because you are in the same shoes, but you are taking control and doing something about it.
Because you have chosen to become a coach, your own fitness results will become better than you’ve ever seen before!! People don’t often write about this benefit of coaching, but I guarantee, it is real!
