Coaching Q&A

Coaching Q&A

Q: Why should I consider becoming a coach?

A: I started P90X in December 2009. I knew nothing about Beachbody, Coaching, Nutrition or Supplements. As I committed to the program and continued my journey after 90 days, I started buying more and more programs and supplements from Beachbody. As I started to transform, I had numerous people asking me what I was doing.  I had numerous friends and family members start the programs and I would joke that Beachbody should be paying me to sell their programs.

Soon after, I found out about the coaching opportunity. Not only would I save 25% on all my monthly purchases, but it gave me a real outlet to help others. I would get so many questions from people that I saw this as my opportunity to pay it forward.  It has transformed my life in so many ways that I want to help others achieve a healthier lifestyle as well.

I get huge personal satisfaction out of being a coach. It holds me accountable to my team. I not only share with my team what I have learned, but also learn from my team what has worked from them. This is truly a positive community of people looking to better their lives.

Q: How do I become a coach myself?

A: If you’d like to talk more about becoming a coach but have questions, email me at To sign up as a coach, all you have to do is click on this link. Please send me a “heads up” email before you actually pull the trigger so I can ensure I place you in the ideal spot on my team!!

Q: How much does it cost to become a coach?

A: There is an initial $39.95 one-time fee and then a monthly charge of $14.95 for your back office. The back office is a website that Beachbody provides for you that keeps track of your sales, team sales, customers, commissions, as well as some training, sales tools, and much more.

Q: How much time do I have to dedicate in order to be a coach?

A: The amount of time you spend is completely up to you. Moreover, it really depends on what kind of coach you want to be.  And this is something only you can answer.

1)    25% Discount on All Products – It costs $14.95 / month to be a coach. If you spend $60 / month on BB products, you are at break even. Anything >$60  and you are financially better off. For example, if you use Shakeology monthly, you can purchase this product for $89.96 as a coach. Full retail is $119.95. If you add the $14.95 coaching fee, you still are ahead and purchase the product for $104.91. For me, I also get the P90X Protein Bars, P90X Results and Recovery Drink, Shakeology Fiber, the Strength and Muscle Formula and new workouts. Additionally, my wife uses Shakeology so we order (2) bags / month. So I save a significant amount of money a month.

2)    Building a Business – Beachbody has a phenomenal back office to support you in building your own business. The only required financial investment is the initial one-time $39.95 fee and your $14.95 / monthly fee. This can be a very lucrative business and you can either make it a part-time or full-time business. You are your own boss so you do as much or as little to build your business as you want. You are a product of the product and your own results are a walking, talking advertisement that will bring people to you! Plus, you are backed by Beachbody’s multi-million dollar advertising budget.

Q: What are some of the benefits of becoming an Independent Beachbody Coach?


  • You have the opportunity to help others get into shape and live a healthier lifestyle.
  • You receive 25% off all Beachbody products.
  • You have built in accountability to keep BRINGING IT since you are leading others!  Talk about motivation.  As your coach, I know that I have to lead by example!
  • You get your own personalized website/store.
  • You are not responsible for shipping or inventory.
  • You have unlimited income potential.
  • You are a personal business owner.
  • You have the opportunity to purchase the Showcase Package.

Q: What is the Showcase Package?

A: This is a great way to get a whole collection of popular Beachbody workout programs for one low cost.  For just $199, you can purchase a collection of Beachbody workout programs that normally costs over $400! The programs included are Turbo Jam, Power 90, Slim in 6, Yoga Booty Ballet, Hip Hop Abs, and P90X. You will also receive a set of B-Lines Resistance Bands and a YBB Squishy Ball. (As a note of comparison: the retail price of P90X is $119.85 plus S&H, and for just $80 more, you can have 5 more programs!)

Q: Do I have to have a great transformation to be a coach?

A: No! You have to have a passion for helping others and the desire to succeed. The earlier you start, the better.  I started from a decent place. I was not massively overweight and I was doing some exercise. However, I saw the greatest transformation in my mind and spirit. Don’t get me wrong, I saw external and internal physical change, but this only led the way to strengthening my mental, emotional, and spiritual foundations.

Q: What if I’m not very knowledgable about fitness, nutrition, or supplements?

A: You don’t have to be an expert to be a coach. I wasn’t when I first started. I started out like everyone else. However, I’ve done a lot of research since I started back in December 2009. I have had a real desire to learn more about fitness, nutrition and proper supplements. I am really enjoying this  journey and I believe that you will find your own curiosity will lead you to self-education as well. I have learned from other coach’s blogs, from the Internet, from books, and from Beachbody. The best time to start learning and becoming an expert is NOW!

Q: Will I get the proper training?

A: Beachbody has an excellent training program called the Game Plan, which you will need to understand when you sign up to coach. I have also created my own training program to provide you the knowledge to be a successful coach.
