Beachbody Coach Scam

Beachbody Coach Scam or is there really an opportunity here? That is a question a lot of people want to find out who are considering becoming  a Beachbody Coach. That is EXACTLY the question I asked before I became a Coach myself. I’ve been a Coach since January of 2010 so I can shine some light on this topic and expose the truth on the Beachbody Coach Scam (or opportunity).

Beachbody Coach ScamQuick Run Down Of The Opportunity – Beachbody Coach Scam

You likely already know a little bit about what the Beachbody Coach opportunity is all about if you’ve gotten this far and are trying to get more insight on it to make sure it’s not a scam. However, I did one to give you a quick rundown just in case you don’t know much about it. Simply put, a Beachbody Coach is someone who runs a home based business to help other people get fit and healthy. We help people to get fit and healthy through the various in-home fitness programs and nutritional products that the company Beachbody put outs (P90X, Insanity, Turbo Jam, Shakeology etc.).

As a Coach you get commissions on the products you get people to purchase as well as bonuses for growing a team of Coaches. You also get various other bonuses and prizes for growing your business. To get more details on the opportunity, feel free to check out my post here I made on it- Beachbody Coach scam

Isn’t This a Pyramid Scheme Thingy? – Beachbody Coach Scam

beachbody coach pyramid schemeBeachbody Coach scam ALERT! It’s a pyramid scheme! :-) When people ask that, they typically don’t even know what a Pyramid Scheme is. First, a true pyramid scheme is 100% illegal. A pyramid scheme is where a “distributor” gets paid JUST to bring in new distributors and there is no product being exchanged. So if I got paid just to bring on new Coaches (and there was no physical product exchanged), then that would indeed be a pyramid scheme and would be illegal.

As a Beachbody Coach you don’t get paid just for bringing on new Coaches. You only get paid for bringing on new Coaches if that Coach buys or sells product. You get rewarded when that Coach is actually doing something and working to grow their business. Doesn’t that sounds like every other business in the world?

Many managers at the thousands of business around the U.S. get bonuses when their employees or their business center is doing well and growing. Also most companies give their employees referral bonuses JUST for referring new employees to the company who get hired. This is a simple way to motivate people within the company to work and to help grow the business. I don’t know about you, but if I’m growing my business and having success at it, I want to be rewarded and get paid for my efforts! Beachbody Coach scam? So far so good!

Can You Really Make Money? – Beachbody Coach Scam

The simple answer to this question is…YES! But ultimately it depends on you! If the company told you that you are going to make millions of dollars overnight as a Beachbody Coach, then I would say yes…it’s a Beachbody Coach scam. But that isn’t the case. Unfortunately in all businesses there are people who like to make wild claims or who just don’t tell the truth.

If someone has told you that you are guaranteed to make money or that you’re going to make millions overnight as a Beachbody Coach, then I’m hear to tell you they are wrong. You may not make a dime as a Coach. Or you could be making a six figure income within a year. Or you may just make a few hundred dollars a month as a Coach. As I mentioned earlier, it depends on YOU!

If you sign up as a Beachbody Coach expecting the money to just start flooding into your bank account with you doing NOTHING or VERY LITTLE WORK then you are living in a fantasy world and are just chasing the money. Just like ANY business, in the beginning you will be working your butt off for little pay. You will make little or no money in the beginning, but with time, hard work, and consistency you will see your income rise and rise, and rise (as long as you continue to take action).

I want you to be the judge if this is a Beachbody Coach scam or if it’s a true opportunity. Check out the below video where I log in to my actual Online Back Office and show you my earnings and the earnings of other Coaches-

Beachbody Coach scam? It’s looking more and more like a real opportunity!

The Negatives Of Being A Beachbody Coach – Beachbody Coach Scam

It takes time and hard work to make money as a Coach. Just like any business that you start and anything in life, it does take time and hard work to make money as a Coach. Hopefully you understand that by now since I think I’ve really beat this point to death already! :-)

You might fail and not make a dime. Again, I’ve mentioned this already too. You might sign up to become a Coach and months and months go by and you may not make a dime! To be quite honest and blunt though, if you don’t make a dime as a Coach, then the problem isn’t Beachbody, the problem is you! You are not taking the right action and being consistent with those actions or you’re not following the game plan set out by Beachbody, or some combination of all the above.

It costs money to be a Coach. It does cost money to become a Beachbody Coach and you may not be in the position to make that investment. Just like any business you start, there is an investment. My wife and I personally started service oriented business a few years ago (we formed an LLC, got a business license, etc.). It took us $8,000 to get it up and going. As a Beachbody Coach it will take you about $129.90 to come on board and be an active Coach. You also have 30 days from signing up that you can cancel and get all of your money back. Did my wife and I have a 30 day money back guarantee on the $8,000 we spent? Heck no!

The Positives Of Being A Beachbody Coach – Beachbody Coach Scam

It might just change your life- physically, financially, or both. For me, becoming a Beachbody Coach has not only changed me physically, but financially as well. I have gotten into the best shape of my life and have built a steady and rock solid income that my family will be able to depend on. Let’s say you come into the business and you find out you’re not ready to put the work in required to be successful with the business side of things.  That is OK! Despite that, you stick with your workouts and you get into incredible shape. You will now live a longer, happier, healthier life as a result of the programs and products. Beachbody Coach scam? I think not!

Your downline and Coach want to see you succeed. Let’s say you decided to start up a dry cleaning business. What if you walked into a local dry cleaning business in your area and you say, “Could you teach me everything you know so that I can be successful with my dry cleaning business?” They will LAUGH at you and say heck no! Why would they say that? Because they want you to FAIL! They don’t want more competition. Your downline and Coach are doing the same thing that you do, but they want you to SUCCEED!

You might just become a better person. One very integral part of the game plan that you will follow once you become a Beachbody Coach is that you will work on improving yourself as a person every single day. That means reading a good book or listening to an audio that will help you to work on your weaknesses and improve your strengths. So in the end, you just might become a much better person!

True Costs To Be a Coach – Beachbody Coach Scam

I wanted to give you a quick breakdown of the costs associated with being a Coach. If I hid these numbers from you, then yes, it would be a Beachbody Coach scam.

When You Sign Up:

[unordered_list style=”arrow”]
  • $39.95– This pays for your Business Starter Kit, access to your Coach Online Back Office, 2 personal websites, etc. This fee is waived if you purchase one of the three Starter Packs (Shakeology Starter Pack, Shakeology Plus Fitness Starter Pack, or the Diamond Pack).
  • $89.96– For a bag of Shakeology OR this number maybe more if you get one of the other Starter Packs (Shakeology Starter Pack, Shakeology Plus Fitness Starter Pack, or the Diamond Pack).  I always recommend at the minimum that my new Coaches get on and start using Shakeology. If you have the money to buy one of the other Starter Packs instead and you want to make that investment, then I say go for it.

Total Approximate Cost When You Sign Up: $129.91 + Taxes or more if you decide to get one of the other Starter Packs.

Ongoing Costs:

[unordered_list style=”arrow”]
  • $14.95/month starting your 2nd month as a Coach. This covers the cost to keep your Online Back Office and your 2 personal websites updated and running. It also helps cover all of the other expenses Beachbody incurs- customer service, shipping, inventory, etc.
  • $89.96/month to continue using Shakeology and to maintain your active status as a Coach. Beachbody only wants Coaches who are actively growing their business and who actively use the products (how can we get other people on the programs and products if we don’t use them ourselves? We can’t!). As such, you need to either buy or sell 50 PV (personal volume) worth of product each month. Using Shakeology will satisfy this requirement each month. Once you get established though and are consistently making sales, you can cancel your Shakeology. You may be like me though and once you start using it, you won’t want to stop!

Total Approximate Monthly Costs: $14.95 + $89.96 = $104.91
