A. Beachbody Coaches share with others products they are using themselves that they truly believe in and know get results. They also provide support, accountability, and motivation to their customers and help them get the best results possible.
Above is the short version. If you’d like a longer versions and a more in depth explanation, keep reading.
Are you wondering what a Beachbody Coach actually does?
This is a great question because I think the word “Coach” actually confuses a lot of people. Beachbody Coaches don’t really “coach” people in the way that the word implies. Beachbody Coaches don’t act as personal trainers that will correct your form and guide you through a workout the way that a personal trainer would. Beachbody Coaches are not required to be fitness experts, and they don’t need to be. Beachbody has created awesome workout programs that are led by trainers who do an excellent job of walking you through every move of every workout. It really is like you’re working out with a personal trainer in your own home. Beachbody has also created nutrition guides specific for each workout. The workout programs and nutrition guide are all someone needs to be able to get amazing results.
So What Does A Beachbody Coach Do?
So if Beachbody Coaches don’t actually Coach, what does a Beachbody Coach do?
The answer to this question will depend on the individual Coach. It is important to understand that the word “coach” is just another word for distributor. Beachbody Coaches are independent business owners that make money from all of the products that they sell.
But don’t take the fact that Beachbody Coaches make money for the products that they sell the wrong way. When hearing this you might assume that Coaches are in it just for the money, but this isn’t the case the majority of the time. Here is the most common scenario.
There is a guy named Joe. Joe is 40 pounds overweight and stumbles across a P90x commercial late one night after returning home from the bar. Joe had a few drinks at the bar and has a little buzz going, but it’s a “depressed” buzz. We’ve all had that depressed buzz a few times in our life, so I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
Anyhow, Joe is depressed for a number of reasons, but one of those reasons was that while he was out at the bar, because he is overweight his self image and confidence is very low. And because of his low self confidence, Joe was very standoffish and afraid to approach women out of fear of rejection. Joe is lonely and self conscious, which makes him drink even more.
So while my story about this fictitious guy named Joe gets too carried away, long story short, late one night he sees a P90x infomercial and decides to order it. Joe gets started with P90x, puts in a great effort, and after 90 days is in the best shape of his life. Joe’s appearance has changed so much that everyone that knows him, his friends, family, and coworkers notice and start asking him, “Joe, you look great, what have you been doing?”
This is when Joe start telling everyone he knows about P90x. He can genuinely recommend it to others, because he knows it works.
By becoming a Beachbody Coach, Joe can be rewarded for recommending P90x, or any other Beachbody product to people. And he should be rewarded. Joe is introducing P90x to people and they are buying because of his results and recommendation, so it only makes sense that he gets compensated for that.
Notice that I used the word “recommend” versus “sell”. These are the type of people that do well as a Beachbody Coach, people that use the products, got great results, and truly love them. When this is the case, it’s not selling, it’s sharing and recommending.
So What does a Beachbody Coach do? They share with others products that they use and love.
But don’t think that it required to have an amazing transformation story in order to be successful as a Beachbody Coach, it’s not. It is also not required to be all ripped up with 6 pack abs. You don’t need to be in perfect shape. All that is required is that you are working on improving your own health and fitness level with Beachbody products. Being a “product of the product” is key.
What Does A Beachbody Coach Do? – It Depends
Now what a Beachbody Coach does depends on the individual. Remember each Coach is consider “independent” which means they are free to work their business at whatever pace they want. Some customers become a Coach just for the 25% discount and have no intentions of selling products or growing a business. Some Coaches choose to work their business passively by recommending the products to people that they know whenever it comes up in daily conversation. And other Coaches work their business more aggressively by running fit clubs, challenge groups, having home parties, marketing online, advertising, etc.
Beachbody Coaches aren’t required to actually do anything. A Coach’s success will depend on their own individual effort and no one is going to force you to do anything. Being a Beachbody Coach is not a job. it is a business that each Coach owns for themselves. As with anything in life you’ll get out of it what you put in.
If you’re someone that is motivated and wants to truly build a business, these are the 3 vital behaviors you’ll need to do on a daily basis to grow you business:
- Invite. Invite. Invite
- Be Proof The Products Work
- Personal Development
Those 3 things listed above are what you can expect to do as a Beachbody Coach. It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that this is a real business and needs to be treated like one if you want to earn a decent income. It is also important to understand how the business model works, and that it is likely you won’t make a lot of money early on in this business. It will be challenging, and will take effort, but there is huge income potential, it just takes a little time to get there. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
