Q. How much does it cost to be a Beachbody Coach?
A. A person can get started as a Beachbody Coach for anywhere between $39.95- $305…it all depends on what products are purchased during the Coach sign up process.
Q. Is there a recurring monthly fee to be a Beachbody Coach?
A. There are a few different options as a Coach. The absolute lowest a person would have to pay to be a Coach is $15.95. Typically if you are someone that is serious about the business, you can expect to pay around $130 a month. This amount would include the $15.95 monthly website maintenance fee, a $2.99 a week Club Membership Charge, and a month’s supply of Shakeology for your own personal use.
(Note: When you join my team, my goal is to help you earn your start up cost back your first month in the business, which is a very realistic goal.)
I explain the Beachbody Coach costs in more detail below:
Are you looking for information on the Beachbody Coach cost? Do you want to know the total amount that it is going to cost to get signed up as a Beachbody Coach and what the recurring monthly fees are? If you are looking for the answers to these questions on the Beachbody Coach cost you are in the right place. In this post I’m going to give you a breakdown on the different signup options, and which one is the best value for you.
Beachbody Coach Cost With A Challenge Pack – Best Value
The best way to get signed up as a Beachbody Coach is to purchase a Challenge Pack during the signup process. When a Challenge Pack is purchased during the signup process, the $39.95 fee to become a Coach is waived. The Challenge Packs are already a great deal, and with the $39.95 start up fee being waived, it makes them an even better deal.
The Challenge Packs come with the workout program of your choice, and a month’s supply of Shakeology, plus you will get free shipping. Below is a price list of the cost of each Challenge Pack price, along with a price breakdown comparison of the P90x Challenge Pack versus buying P90x and Shakeology separately.
- Ultimate Reset -$305
- Les Mills Pump – $245
- Body Beast – $220
$205 Challenge Packs
- Turbo Fire
- Tai Cheng
$180 Challenge Packs
- 10 Minute Trainer
- ChaLean Extreme
- Insanity: The Asylum
- Rev Abs
- Body Gospel
$160 Challenge Packs
- Les Mills Combat
- Brazil Butt Lift
- Power 90
- Turbo Jam
$140 Challenge Packs
- Slim In 6
- Hip Hop Abs
As you can see from the price comparison above, a customer is able to save over $57 when investing in a Challenge Pack versus ordering P90x and Shakeology separately. Obviously the price comparison shown in the image above is just comparing the P90x Challenge Pack, but the numbers would be the same for all $205 Challenge Packs. It is not just the $205 Packs that are a good deal, any Challenge Pack is a great value.
So depending on which workout program you are interested in, the Beachbody Coach cost could be anywhere from $305-$140 when ordering a Challenge Pack during the sign up process.
However, there is also an option to get signed up as a Coach for as little as $39.95. Paying just the signup fee enables you be a Coach, get access to your Coach online office, and gets you your replicated websites for you to send your customers to. From my experience, those that sign up and pay just the $39.95 Beachbody Coach cost, typically don’t do very well in the business. The cause of this may be for several different reasons. The biggest reason, in my opinion is that since the new Coach has very little invested, they don’t treat their new business seriously. Maybe the new Coach signs up for $39.95, goes on over to facebook and makes a few posts with the hopes of making some sales, but ends up discouraged and quits when no one comments or “likes” the posts they made. If this sounds like a strategy you were planning on implementing, I’ll advise you to save your time and money and not even sign up. I will tell you upfront that it takes a lot more than just a few facebook posts to succeed in this business.
If you already own a few Beachbody workouts, and there isn’t one you want to purchase in a Challenge Pack, I highly recommend that you at least order Shakeology during the signup process. If you’re going to be a Coach, and plan on having success with your business, it is important that you are using the products yourself. We don’t want to force Coaches to drink Shakeology, but we would rather have customers, that actually use, enjoy, and would genuinely recommend Shakeology to a friend, become Coaches, over people who want to join just to try and make money. How do you expect to recommend, or give your opinion on Shakeology, if you are not drinking it yourself.
Beachbody Coach Cost – Is There A Monthly Recurring Fee?
Yes, there is a monthly recurring fee to become a Beachbody Coach of $15.95. The fee is to have access to the infrastructure that Beachbody has set up, access to the “Success” library, and goes towards website maintenance for the 3 websites you are given when you sign up to be a Beachbody Coach.
In my opinion, $15.95 is a low price to pay to be a Beachbody Coach and to be able to tap into what Beachbody has put together for the Coaches. Each Coach gets 3 websites, a site that promotes all Beachbody products in general, a site that promotes Shakeology, and a site that promotes the Ultimate Reset. You can see what each site looks like at the links below:
Also, the “Success” library that each Coach has access to is jam packed with valuable personal growth materials from Success Magazine that are paramount in growing your business. In my opinion, the “Success” library alone could be valued at double the $15.95 monthly Beachbody Coach cost.
There is also an option to be Club Member that costs $2.99 a week and is billed quarterly. I consider the Club Membership as a cost of doing business, because in order to qualify for the customer lead program, one of the requirements is for a Coach be a Club Member. Some Coaches don’t like this, but to me $2.99 a week is a small price to have customer placed in my business.
No Quotas To Meet!
Another great aspect of Beachbody’s business opportunity is that there are never any quotas to meet in order for Coaches to qualify for 25% commissions of their retail sales. If a Coach makes a sale, they’ll always earn a commission. However, there is a monthly 50 “personal volume” (PV) requirement in order for a Coach to be considered “active” or advance in rank.
Personal volume points can come from a Coach’s own orders, or from any products that they sell. Meeting the 50 PV requirement in order to be considered active is not hard to do. If a Coach is drinking Shakeology, which is 90 PV, that would cover the 50 PV requirement. Or if a Coach had just one Shakeology customer that was on monthly autoship, or made just one P90x sale a month, those scenarios would also cover that monthly PV requirement in order to be considered “active” or advance in rank.
Keep in mind that Coaches are never forced to buy anything just to cover the 50 PV, there is no penalty for not being “active”, however, once a Coach reaches Emerald rank or higher, if they are not “active”, they won’t be eligible to earn team cycle bonuses.
If the PV talk, and rank advancement talk kind of confuses you, don’t worry, that is normal. These are are things you can learn as you go. It isn’t important to know the complete ins and outs of the business before you get started. Most of the specifics you will learn as you go. I’ve been a Beachbody Coach for over 4 years and I’m still learning all of the technicalities.
So to simplify the Beachbody Coach cost, you just need to know that the price to get started is very low, almost non-existent. This business opportunity has virtually unlimited income potential, and with the cost being so low to get started, it makes it a no brainer. I almost wish Beachbody would consider raising the price. I think because the price is so low to get started, many new Coaches don’t take it real seriously because they have so little invested.
