Beachbody Coach Time Requirement

Beachbody Coach Time Requirement

How Much Time Is This Gonna Take?

People always ask me the questions, “how much time will I have to spend on my business once I become a Beachbody Coach?”  And, “what is the minimal time requirement I need to spend on my Beachbody business in order to be successful?”

To give a simplified short answer, I’d say the minimum amount of time needed to be successful in growing your Beachbody business is 7 – 10 hours a week. In my opinion, 1 hour a day, 7 days a week, or 2 hours a day, 5 days a week is all that is needed when first starting out as a Beachbody Coach.

It is very important to understand how this business model works and that in beginning you will work many hours, but get paid very little. But as time goes by, the amount of hours you spend will get smaller, but your checks will get bigger.

I think many people don’t understand this fully and give up way too soon because they’ve work hard for a few months, but aren’t yet seeing the monetary rewards. I explain this in more detail in this post here: http://coachquestions.com/realistic-beachbody-coach-earning-expectations/

Work Your Beachbody Coach Business On Your Own Schedule

Remember, the numbers that I mention above are just my opinion. When you start out as a Beachbody Coach you are your own boss. There won’t be anyone forcing you to do put in a specific amount of time. Because you are your own boss, you are free to put in as many (or as little) hours as you want. I think 10 hours a week is plenty when just starting out.

Here’s the thing, as a brand new Beachbody Coach, you really won’t be sure what to even do, so it won’t require a lot of your time. In the beginning, there will be a lot of training that you will want to get plugged into. You can expect to spend a couple hours a week on training. Even after being a Beachbody Coach for over 4 years, I still spend usually an hour or 2 a day on some kind of outside training that was not provided by Beachbody and that I’ve spent my own money on.

Every person that signs up to become a Beachbody Coach has different intentions. The amount of time you spend on your Beachbody Coach business will depend on what your goals are. For example, if you signed up just to get a 25% discount on your Shakeology order every month, there is obviously no reason for you to spend time on growing your business. But, if your goal is to turn your Beachbody Coach business in a 6 figure a year business, you’ll want to plan on starting out spending a minimum of 10 hours a week on your business.

Consistency Is What Is Important When Growing Your Beachbody Business

What is more important than the actual number of hours you spend on your business is CONSISTENCY. Determine how many hours per day/week you are able to spend on your business, and set aside specific days and times that you will be doing business building activities. Then stick your schedule.

Doing just a little each day, over time, will have a huge impact on your business. So many Coaches get signed up, are excited and pumped, and spend 5 hours a day, everyday, for the first month, and yield very little results. Then they get discouraged, and give up. It is very important to set a realistic schedule, one that will not burn you out over time. Look at building your business as marathon, not a sprint.

Your exercise routine shouldn’t be the following, workout for 7 hours on Sundays, and take the other 6 days off…and you should approach your Beachbody business with the same concept. You will get much better results spending a hour a day on building your business, than you would spending just 7 hours 1 day a week.

Use Time Management To Effectively Grow Your Beachbody Business

Along with consistency, time management is another skill that is needed to effectively grow your business. So often we find ourselves spending 30 minutes browsing through some random person’s facebook pictures, or we get sucked down into a “related videos” YouTube wormhole and we’ve found that once we finally get out, 2 hours has gone by.

My time management advice is to simply have a plan and agenda. You don’t just want to hop onto facebook and browse around and have that count towards your business building time. In fact, I recommend staying completely off of facebook during your business building time, unless you are going there specifically to make a post, or reply to a message or comment that is business related.

The concepts of time management is pretty simple, the hard part is actually sticking to your own rules.

Work Your Beachbody Business During Your Everyday Life

It’s possible to become a Beachbody Coach and grow your business passively by incorporating it into your everyday life. By just bringing up the workouts, Shakeology, and what you do as a Beachbody Coach in everyday conversations, it is possible to build your business. Health and fitness seems to always come up naturally in conversations. If you people notice that you’ve lost weight or are in great shape, they say to you, “you look great!…What have you been doing?”. And of course you will reply back letting them know what you’re doing and if they are interested in doing the same thing, then you can send them to your site.

The bottom line is that not much time is required to start building your Beachbody Coach business. Everyone has 168 hours in a week, we all have similar responsibilities when it comes to work, family, children, etc. If you are like one of the many people that say, “I just don’t have the time”, but you do have the time to get on facebook and watch TV every night, your “I don’t have time” excuse is just that, an excuse to prevent you from feeling bad about not taking action.
