Since I signed up a few weeks ago to be a coach, and I’ve been letting people know about it. By far, the number one question I get is: How much does it cost to be a beachbody coach? A reasonable question. Here’s my answer:
$39.99 and then $15.95 a month and that’s it!
You have two options when you sign up, which impact the cost:
- Signing up as a coach for the 25% discount for yourself and your friends/family
- Signing up as a coach to be a coach/build a business (and get the 25% discount too!)
Signing up to be a beachbody coach costs $39.99. If you or your spouse are active military, the fee is waived! (I secretly wish John was military so I could get discounts on stuff, LOL)
The fee is also waived if you buy a challenge pack (which is a bundle of a full workout program, club access, and shakeology).
After your first month as a coach, there is a monthly fee of $15.95 to maintain the websites beachbody creates for you.
These are the sites:
If you’re signing up to be a coach for that great 25% discount, these are your only fees. If you’re on a home delivery plan of Shakeology or something, your savings will negate the cost and then some.
If you’re signing up to be a coach so you can build your own business, whether just for some extra cash, or if you’re like me and want to make it your full-time income eventually, there is a bit more to consider, cost-wise.
Just like above you pay the $39.99 to register, the monthly $15.95 for your four websites. You could stop there and just sell programs and shakeology to customers and earn your 25% commission check each week.
You can be what’s called an ACTIVE coach and be able to earn much more than just the 25%.
To be an Active Coach you must sell or purchase $55 worth of product each month. (Example: I am on home delivery of Shakeology so I am automatically always going to be active)
It’s hard for me to consider that a “cost” of being a coach, because it’s a product I’ll be using daily either way.
Further for coaches who want to build their business up into something lucrative:
After you have reached Emerald status (meaning you have 2 active coaches under you) there is a $39.95 fee (per quarter) to be eligible for the Customer Lead Program where beachbody GIVES you customers that have signed up online or through their millions of infomercials.
I hope that was clear. If not feel free to ask me any questions.
