Q: Why should I consider becoming a coach?
A: [From Tony] Before I even started my first round of Insanity, I knew I wanted to become a coach. My business partner, Dustin, had done P90X several times and loved it. We also had a couple of other friends who had done a number of other Beachbody programs.
After looking over the Beachbody site, and getting familiar with the amazing programs, supplements, and Shakeology I was hooked. Not only was I excited to start Insanity after 7 years of bicycling, but saving money on the purchase of the program was a plus and a nice benefit of being a coach.
Here’s the thing. I needed to change my routine of cycling and I needed someone to be my accountability partner for the 8-week Insanity program. My wonderful wife, Alisa, decided it was time for her to get an area of her body, her thighs and butt, to where she wanted it. So, I signed up as a coach, bought both Insanity and Brazil Butt Lift, and the rest as they say is history.
We love the workouts and the ability to be encouraging each other to reach our fitness goals. We workout at the same time, but in different parts of the house. I’m in the garage while she works out in the living room. Over the first few weeks, I could notice the amazing change that was happening to my wife. The stubborn saddlebags on her thighs were fading away and her rear end was getting tight and lifted. As for me, my upper body was beginning to get more defined as well as my abs. You can read what I thought about Insanity after my first week.
The great thing was that as I was going through Insanity I was posting on Facebook and Twitter about how it was going. I had one of my clients from another business join me, another guy jumped on after reading that first post from Twitter, and another two friends were doing it as well. What I realized very quickly was that I loved the camaraderie I had with each of these guys. We would stay in touch to see how our fit tests were going, how we did after specific workouts, and they were coming to me to answer specific questions about what worked/didn’t work for me. Other questions included nutrition, recovery drinks and supplements. I was happy to share and see the benefits these suggestions were having on this group.
By becoming a coach, I am accountable to keep pushing play, keep getting more focused, and keep setting a good example for my team members. I can’t get lazy when I’ve got all of you looking up to me!! If you are passionate about P90X, Insanity, or another program I want to help you and others with the program. If you are willing to be accountable as a coach to keep BRINGING IT, then I encourage you to consider coaching.
That’s the story and passion behind my coaching decision. For you, it could be as simple as saving 25% on all products or the incredible opportunity to build a great business while helping others transform their lives. Becoming a coach has many benefits!
Q: How do I become a coach myself?
A: If you’d like to talk more about becoming a coach but have questions, email Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org. To sign up as a coach, all you have to do is click HERE to be sponsored by Tony or HERE to be sponsored by Dustin.
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.
IMPORTANT: If you are an active U.S. Military member, all coaches fees are waived! Contact us for details.
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.
Q: What are some of the benefits of becoming an Independent Beachbody Coach?
A: 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.
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. Let that keep you motivated as you go through the program (Tell yourself that you can literally turn your results into a profitable business! That might give you the extra incentive to Bring It!!)
Q: What if I’m not very knowledgeable 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 / Brazil Butt Lift in particular), nutrition, and supplements. 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. We will also plug you into a lot of amazing training available exclusively to our team members!
