Beachbody review: is Being a Beachbody coach all it’s hyped up to be?
I live in Pittsburgh PA so that means really absolutely nothing because BeachBody is EVERYWHERE!
You see it on commercials, infomercials, at the stores and all over the place.
Actually, I can’t really think of anyone that can actually compete with Beachbody for fitness, they are a massively HUGE MLM COMPANY full of hopeful Beach Body Coaches who try to make money from home.
Make money from home?
If you didn’t already know it, Beach Body “saves you money” by letting you pay to become a Beach Body Coach and learn how to make extra money while at the same time become fit and motivate others.
Thousands of people join the beach body company to make more money and to try out that Tony Horton Fitness don’t know that there is a better way to become an at home worker.
Check out my what my friend Brad has to say at the jump!
Ok..so maybe they aren’t just joining beach body to do the tony Horton fitness program.
Maybe they are actually wondering if you can make money with beach body as a coach or how to become a beach body coach because they love that they lost weight off of the Insanity Videos (crazy crazy good workouts by the way!)
Beach Body has been crushing it since forever.
Beachbody is one of the many mlm companies around today but they are probably the largest multi level marketing in fitness for sure.
I mean come on, they sell $136.00 Shakeology Shake powder for goodness sakes!
(No I hear you asking: “What is Shaekeology?”….more on this later)
That’s where the money is right?
I mean if you buy that Shakeology, then can you imagine the extra income and the extra money you could bring in it were as easy as becoming a beach body coach and making money online from their beach body compensation plan?
Big money right?
It’s a fantastic money making idea for sure!
Exercise gurus and body builders are making a killing as online entrepreneurial fitness gurus!
They get the Hot beachbody and they get to brag about being a rich beach body coach…….I think.
So, of course, I didn’t stand around long asking “Should I be a beach Body Coach?” when asked to join Team Beach Body.
Like most people, I jumped at the chance to become a beach body coach when my neighbor told me she was making $1000 a month or something like that just by being a coach.
So now I know you are wondering: Can you make money with beach body or as a beach body coach?
How do you become a beach body coach or how to you get in on making money from selling $136 Shakeology Shakes and sell other beachbody products online?
Let’s talk about that:
#1. My neighbor is constantly (I mean ALL THE TIME) posting on multiple facebook pages about here beach body start up fitness groups for the 21 Day Fix and some other Beach Body things like the p90x workout.
#2. She texts people too.
#3. She works a LOT to make money off of beach body.
#4 I’m going to have to show her the cold hard cash that I picked up today from my local business guy that I helped with the best online opportunity I have ever found that allow me to make extra money on the internet!
#5. She is selling Shakeology: How much is Shakeology? Answer: Expensive. Shakeology ingredients are real and they have a huge amount of advertising put into advertising shakeology. Basically, shakeology is a fancy way of saying “smooties for weight loss” and they are used as part of a diet plan for men and women.
There’s a better way. You HAVE to meet Brad. Coolest Dude you’ll ever meet and the one with the best advice around on how to make money at home. Check out his Millionaire Mentoring Videos.
Let’s check out more about beachbody:
The Beach Body, LLC was founded in 1998 by Carl Daikeler and a guy named Jon Congdon in Santa Monica, California (great name for beach body loving people right?) and are known for their many many different types of fitness videos and weight loss supplements, shakes and solutions! These are all some of the best workout videos for workouts at home.
They are known as the Beach Body peeps and they also go by Team Beach Body (teambeachbody.com) which is their coaching guru one stop shop.
Check out their long list of fitness products (I’m sure you’ve heard of them!)
- Tony Horton Fitness – p90X or the p90 workout
- Shaun T INSANITY (If you want to die jumping this one is for you!)
- Brazil Butt Lift ( I probably should invest because I have Baby Butt Slag)
- Slim in 6 (My older mother loves it)
- Turbo Jam (Killin’ with the music and beachbody workout vibes)
- Hip Hop Abs ( Remember all those As Seen on TV beachbody ads for this one?)
- 21 Day Fix Workout (It comes with colored containers and a beachbody meal plan)
- 21 Day Fix Extreme (or something like that an it comes with 21 day fix video and calendar!)
- T25 Get it Done (does it come with t25 diet and calendar like Insanity?)
- 21 Day Fix Plyo
- So much more! I could go on and one.
The one product that they are super proud of (and it makes them a lot of money and their beach body coaches a lot of money) is Shakeology.
They claim Shakeology is the best meal of the day and they might be right but I’m not a scientist and I haven’t test it….but I have drank it!
Shakeology is not bad. I prefer it with coffee or cantaloupe (crazy I know) and it comes in a good variety of flavors.
Shakeology still has that protein shake type taste to it but it does do what it says…you know..controls your appetite. But how healthy is it to rely on crushed dried up fruits and protein?
To top it all off, Beach Body Coaches and the opportunity to become a beachbody coach is just one of their revenue streams!
They also offer a very popular skin product (Kind of like Nu Skin) called Derm Exclusive.
Now, when I tell you there is a better way than to make money as team beachbody I don’t want you to think I’m busting on their products (well maybe just a little…but not too much because I use them and they work…but you have to work hard to do it)
So if you’re sitting there thinking that you becoming beachbody coach can earn money as a beachbody coach, you need to really think why you might want to do that because it’s going to be Work…lots of it.
Not to mention calling your friends, sisters, mother’s father’s brother, and more to try and get them to join on not as a participant but also as a beachbody affiliate.
I’ll talk later about how you earn money as a beachbody coach.
Back to the company info:
Beach Body makes money on multiple levels in multiple streams, so they are very smart!
They are very conscious about the mental vibe they put out to their followers and have four core values that they follow:
- Commit and Deliver Promises
- Repect others and be courageous and true to them
- Take the first steps to improve everything around you…everything!
- Be Passionate, Enthusiastic and Use Common Sense
Now of course they word that differently, but I promise you they are the Beach Body Core Rules.
Not bad eh?
If one thing goes wrong with their marketing, then they will likely survive……as long as that something isn’t relying on making money as a beachbody coach.
They have a great little thing going where they really motivate their team and pump up their top earners (who work their butts off to get there) and the one thing I think is kind of weird though is that ANY ONE can be a beachbody coach.
You don’t have to have any fitness knowledge at all to be a coach. You just have to have a desire to find the best way to make money beachbody coach mentality.
So why are there people becoming beachbody coach people?
(They don’t know about how I make money is the best answer here…but let’s see why else)
Check out how beachbody coaches make income:
First things first:
How to become a Beach Body Coach:
- Pay $39.99 to become a coach
- Buy a Challenge Pack (it can be anywhere from $100 something to over $300)
- Get 25% off any product that you purchase

Can you make money as a beachbody coach?
Yes. And No. — It really depends on you and how hard you are willing to work.
You can always cross your fingers and win their $100,000 challenge to lose weight!
BeachBody compensation plan
Umm…well…Ok..the best way to say it is that a beachbody coach earns 25% commission on whatever product they sell.
Then there it this whole lot of confusing % commission that you earn by brining coaches in under you and then you earn some of what they bring in and they bring in coaches and on and on.
My neighbor is making money be making people coaches. That’s the best way I can figure.
If a coach drops out, you lose the income stream and you could lose your rank.
Coaches earn ranks and each rank allows them to make a different amount.
It’s too much to me to figure out. But I’ll try to explain it.
Here we go:
Compensation relies on the fact that you, your family and friends will want to help each other out. Eventually you start to build what they call is “team volume”
They then have bonus cycles each week that range anywhere from $12 to $12,000 per week and varies based on your rank/volume.
So…each rank earns an amount per cycle (week) as follows:
- Emerald – $12 /cycle
- Ruby – $16 / cycle
- Diamond – $18 / cycle
Then here is a further breakdown of what’s been paid (from 2012 records…it’s all I could find)
Emerald Beach Body Coach Earnings:
Low beach body coach earnings: $14.00
Average Beachbody Coach Compensation: $3,353.00
High Beachbody Earnings: $261,621.00
Ruby Beach Body Coaches Earnings:
Low Beach Body Coach Earnings: $1,869.00
Average Coach Beach Body Compensation: $11,011.00
High Beachbody Coach Earnings: $62,840.00
Diamond Beach Body Coaches Earnings:
Beach Body Coach Low earnings: $212.00
Beachbody Average Coach earnings: $18,175.00
Beach Body Coach High Earnings: $136,818.00
Star Diamond Beachbody Coach Compensation:
Low earnings For Star Diamond Beach Body Coaches: $1,299.00
Average earnings for Beach Body Coach: $90,746.00
High Earnings for Beach Body Coaches: $1,645,484.00
So…that’s a lot really. If you get a coach that is dedicated, they can make a lot. Take a look at those emerald coaches doing more than the diamond beach body coaches. It sure looks amazing!
If you can get in shape and make that type of money as a Beach Body Coach then why wouldn’t you do it right?
But you have to really pump out some time and if that’s not your style and you don’t like trying to get so many people to join, then beachbody is a touch saturated market to win in.
I’ve found a much less complicated way to make money (it’s called, cash in hand) than to count how many beach body coaches are under me and how many times I’ve sold Shakeology.
Now, I’m not busting on being a beachbody affiliate because I definitely think there is a way to make money there but when I look at the statistics of the coaches who make money and how much they make…it kind of scares me.
I never thought of Beach Body as one of the best MLM companies or really as an MLM company at all really.
I have a friend who shouts “Beach Body is an illegal pyramid scam!!!” at the top of her little facebook lungs and the truth is…I don’t know.
I could read until my eyes went cocky and still not know if beach body is a legit business or not.
They’ve been around for a while so I’m guessing they are not really a beach body scam….but I don’t know everything.
I do know that beach body coaches can make money and that they sell a product and that they are encouraged to have other people under them make money.
I also know that the company really pushes personal development and their policies demand exceptional behavior and even mentions following the laws….so that to me seems pretty legit.
But can you make money as a beach body coach?
Probably not as much as I can make with the opportunity I found!
But…Let’s talk the Pros and Cons of becoming a beach body coach
- Nationally recognized health and fitness company
- In Business for over 15 years
- Self Empowering Promotion and Products
- Great fitness products and coaches
- Continually improving their “game” and spending millions on ads
- Local Group Events and Inspirational Trainings
- Start up costs are fairly low
- Support with other coaches if you get in the right team
- Literature and Training on how to make money as a coach
- Personal Coaching Page
- Rewards for bringing more coaches in
- You get to get in shape and make money
- You have to bring in coaches to reach and maintain a higher level within the compensation plan
- The compensation plan is not easy to explain beyond the 25% for each product sold.
- Highly competitive; Saturated Market
- Expensive recurring charged products like Shakeology
- Getting started can feel lonely because they rely on you to heavily use their online resources and most coaches are super busy trying to scrap up some cash for the month.
The ability to become a beach body coach and the opportunity to make money that comes with it is nice. It’s a little hard to convince people to become coaches because they are put off by the price of the challenge packs, but once they do, they essentially save money…but they have to be active coaches in order for your ranking to be maintained so you have to motivate yourself and others to make money by bringing in other coaches or buying products. Your focus on fitness might be overwhelmed by the need to make money for the expensive beach body products.
That being said, expense is really a personal issue. Some people don’t think it is too expensive if it works.
Beach Body has great potential if you know what you are doing and you commit to working very hard at asking (maybe even begging) others to join you on your journey.
Beach Body has been around forever and they continually come out with new workouts and products to sell to the general public.
I think they will continue to be around for a while and beach body coaches can make money off of the new products they continue to bring to the market.
The only complaint I ever really hear about beach body on the beach body review sites is that the Shakeology is so expensive or that the products are expensive and people try to bootleg them.
To me, they are worth the money they costs. I really like their workouts and I’ve lost over 30 lbs in the past with them so I think they will continue to help people in that respect.
Health and Fitness is a HUGE market and as the economy continue to go back into a an upswing, I don’t see why Beach Body Coaches can’t make money and take advantage at the right time to increase their rankings to make more money.
