Q: How much does it cost to become a coach?
A: It’s very cheap to become a coach, with an initial $39.95 fee and then $14.95 per month thereafter. The $14.95 covers your Back Office and the two websites that Beachbody provides you. One is to your online store and the other is a Shakeology website. The Back Office keeps track of your sales, personal volume, team sales, team volume, customers, etc., and also has a ton of other helpful information.
Q: What are the responsibilities of a coach?
A: As a coach, it’s your responsibility to help support and motivate people, and also be there to answer any questions that they might have.
Q: Is the Beachbody Coaching Opportunity a scam?
A: No, the Beachbody Coaching Opportunity is not a scam! When Josh (my Son) started coaching, he was very skeptical and thought it was a scam, but after doing much research and talking to other successful coaches, he discovered it was a legitimate opportunity. Now, he is a full-time coach and one of the top coaches in the nation! I expect to make this a full time job here shortly as well.
Q: Do I have to be a good salesperson?
A: Not at all! As Josh always says, this is not a sales job, but a job of recommendations. If you want to be a successful coach, all you have to do is recommend products that you have used and work for you! Everyone wants to talk about fitness and losing weight, and I feel that Beachbody products are one of the best, if not the best out there. For example, I have seen amazing results from both Shakeology and P90X, so it’s very easy to recommend those products to others because I know they work!
Q: How much time do I need to dedicate to be a successful coach?
A: The amount of time you dedicate to coaching is completely up to you! I spend about an hour a day coaching, but will need to start dedicating more time as my customer base increases. Josh spends about 12-14 hours a day coaching, but again, he is one of the top coaches in the nation and has over 3,000 customers and 120 coaches in his downline.
Q: Do I have to be an expert in fitness?
A: Not at all! I am not even close to a fitness expert and learn something new every day! All you have to have is a passion for helping others.
Q: Do I have to be an American citizen to become a coach?
A: Yes, you must be from the U.S. to become a coach. However, Beachbody is in the process of opening up the opportunity to Canadians. I will make a few posts letting you know when it happens.
Q: Do I get a discount for being a coach?
A: Yes! You get 25% off all Beachbody products, which is awesome! I’m on Shakeology Home Direct and save a ton of money with it since I’m a coach!
Q: Do I have to have great results to become a coach?
A: No, but they do help! The most important thing is that you’re committing yourself to a Beachbody program and working on improving your own fitness level. Remember, you can’t give out advice if you aren’t doing it yourself! Results will come, and then you can use that as a marketing tool like I have.
Q: Will I get the proper training as a new coach?
A: Yes! Josh the 2010 Top Coach in the nation (who happens to be my Son) has created an EXCELLENT training program that he puts all new coaches in his downline through. You will receive the training program once you sign up!
