One of the questions that I’m asked all of time is, “what is the average Beachbody Coach income?” If you have this same question, you are in the right place. In this post I’m going to tell you exactly what the average Beachbody Coach income is, and also explain why this actually isn’t a very good question.
Why It’s Hard To Figure Out The Average Beachbody Coach Income
Figuring out the average Beachbody Coach income is hard, almost impossible because new Coaches are joining on a daily basis, which would skew the numbers. At the time of this writing, there are over 100,000 Beachbody Coaches, with thousands joining every month. It is hard to determine an actual average income, because every Coach is at a different level. It is important to understand the business model that is used for Beachbody Coaches, and that typically in the beginning, most Coaches earn very little, which will also skew the numbers that calculate the average Beachbody Coach income.
The reason why, “what is the average Beachbody Coach income?”, is not a good question is because every Beachbody Coach is paid on their own individual efforts. Beachbody Coaches are independent business owners, and how much money they make will depend on how serious they treat their business and how much effort they put into it.
Some Beachbody Coaches make over $100,000 a year, and some Coaches make $0.
This is the case in any business. If we take real estate agents for example, and figured out what the actual average income was for all real estate agents, I bet that number would be pretty low. Most of know someone that has tried making a living in real estate, but wasn’t very successful and threw in the towel within the first year. The fact of the matter is that most real estate agents won’t make very much money their first year in the business. That first year will be spent learning the business, and building a client base. The same can be said for being a Beachbody Coach, it takes some time to learn the business and to get the ball rolling.
It is also important to know that everyone decides to become a Beachbody Coach for different reasons. For example, a customer that drinks Shakeology on a daily basis may decide to become a Beachbody Coach to take advantage of the 25% discount that Beachbody Coaches get, and this would make sense to do because that customer would actually be saving money in the long run. Other may sign up to be a Beachbody Coach hoping just to make an extra $50-$100 a month, making sales to friends and coworkers. And others may decide to sign up, treat it like a real business, build a large team of other Coaches, and go on to earn a very large in come. It is hard to determine the average Beachbody Coach income when people have different goals for their business.
Average Beachbody Coach Income – The REAL Numbers
Every year Beachbody publishes a Statement of Independent Coach Earnings which shows the actual numbers that Coaches made. I show these numbers below, along with the lowest amount a Coach made, and the highest amount a Coach made. If you are thinking about becoming a Beachbody Coach, and are willing to put in a real effort and treat it seriously, you don’t want to classify yourself as just “average”. Focus more on the “high” side of the numbers, and the potential this business opportunity offers. Because the cost to get started is so low, and really anyone can join, there are a lot of people that sign up and put in very little effort, which brings the averages down.
According to the 2012 Statement Of Independent Coach Earning:
- the lowest amount a Beachbody Coach made was $0
- the average was $3,94837
- the highest was $1,645,484
Yes, you read that correctly, in 2011, the top earning Beachbody Coach made over 1.6 million dollars!

SEE ALSO: Should You Become A Beachbody Coach?
As you can see from the numbers above, the average Beachbody Coach income varies greatly depends on what rank a Coach is. If you are serious about your business, your ultimate goal should be to get to 15 Star Diamond and understand that the lower ranks are all milestones that you will reach along the way. Remember, this is a long term business that will takes years to grow, so if you make it goal to get to Diamond, then advance in rank 3 Stars every year, you could be a 15 Star Diamond in 5 years. That is a realistic goal to have. If you are curious on how the ranking and rank advancements works, you can refer to the chart below:
Instead of trying to find the average Beachbody Coach income, I’d recommend setting a goal for yourself of how much you’d like to earn in 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and so on. Once you’ve set your income goals, determine how many hours you will devote to your Beachbody business, and what you’ll need to do in order to reach your income goals. Then get to work and shoot for hitting your short term goals. If you’re able to reach your short term goals, your long term goals will fall into place.
