Becoming a Coach

Q: Why should I consider becoming a coach?
A: When I started using Beachbody products and working out with Insanity and P90X I wasn’t thinking about becoming a coach, I didn’t even know what a coach was!  However, my coach pointed out that since I was buying Beachbody products, it really made sense to save the 25% by being a coach.  Plus, I am very passionate about the workouts and nutrition and already found myself telling everyone about what I was doing.  Plus, by becoming a coach, I am now accountable to keep pushing play, keep getting more RIPPED, and keep setting a good example for my players.  I can’t get lazy when I’ve got people looking up to me.  Really for me it was just a logical choice.

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 newbodycoachtom@gmail.comTo sign up as a coach, all you have to do is click on this link:

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

A: There is an initial $39.95 fee and then a monthly charge of $15.95 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.  

*Note, the initial $39.95 fee is waived if you purchase a Challenge Pack

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. It just depends on what kind of coach you want to be.  You can be a coach simply for the purpose of saving money on your own products (for example, if you currently use Shakeology, the amount you save on your Shakeology purchase each month is more than the monthly fee to be a coach, so you’ll already be ahead!).  Or, if you want to make the investment of time to turn your coaching into a great part-time (or even full time) business, Beachbody is the perfect way to do that.  You are a product of the system, 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.

  • 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 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.  Having a great transformation is just the icing on the cake, and it can help attract others to you.  You’ll literally be a walking billboard.

Q: What if I’m not very knowledgable about fitness?

A: You don’t have to be a fitness expert to be a coach. I wasn’t when I first started. However, I’ve done a lot of research to learn as much as I could about fitness in general (and P90X / Insanity / One on Ones / P90X Plus in particular), nutrition, and supplements.  Really people are just looking for someone who can tell them what has worked for them.  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 Coach Training Academy, which you will need to understand when you sign up to coach. I’m also here as support for you to help you get your business of the ground.
