What is a Beachbody Coach?Thursday, October 25, 2012
When I first starting Coaching with Team Beachbody, people were always curious and asked, what is a Beachbody Coach? My natural response would generally be “I help people lose weight, get ripped, and change lives.” this is the core job description BUT with this post I’m going to dig much deeper into what being a Team Beachbody Coach is really all about.
"Help people ACHIEVE their goals & enjoy a HEALTHY fulfilling life"
That is Team Beachbody’s mission statement. This mission statement not only encompasses the very foundation of Beachbody helping their customers to get fit and healthy but to help people committed to helping others to lead fulling lives. Team Beachbody is a subsidiary of Beachbody LLC. You know the 400 million dollar, debt free infomercial and fitness company that produces P90X, Insanity, TurboFire, Power 90 and Shakeology. They figured out that selling their products through infomercial is great, but in my mind it really pertains to the impulse buyer, the one that saw the commercial and said out loud, “I could do that for 90 days.” However this created a lot of skepticism as infomercial generally get a pretty bad wrap. This is where Team Beachbody was created. What better way to get your product in the hands of people than having true in the flesh people who had great success with it recommend them!? Every day we recommend something! You go see movies, because a friend recommends it. You started going to your favorite restaurant because someone told you it was really good! We recommend and try things recommended every single day, multiple times a day. They took this very basic idea and ran with it!
"What do Team Beachbody Coaches do?"
As a Team Beachbody Coach your main focus is helping people achieve their fitness goals. When someone purchases a product, sign up for a Club membership or even a free membership on teambeachbody.com they are assigned a coach who is there to personally help you through the purchased program, it’s nutrition guide, supplements or just answer any questions on getting started. As a Coach you can also be chosen directly by your friends, family or anyone who wants you to be their Coach. This is all free to the member. That’s right FREE! The service of helping keep people motivated, informed, and accountable is absolutely FREE to the members. As a Team Beachbody Coach you just simply help and recommend proven Beachbody solutions for other’s goals.
Well yes they get paid!! However, Team Beachbody Coaches do not get paid directly from the members as a personal trainer would. When a Coach recommends a product to a member and that customer buys a recommended product, Beachbody will pay that coach a referral fee. Which is great, because the coach gets paid, but the member does not pay any extra to the coach or for the coach’s services following the purchase! The customer pays the value of the product regardless if they go straight to the website and order or they use a Team Beachbody Coach’s referral code. It’s win, win for everyone involved!
So let’s break this down and let’s say you are a Coach. Let’s say you have a friend that is really looking to get in shape. You as a Coach recommend P90X to your friend and give him a referral code. Breaking this down to monetary levels your friend will pay $119.95 for the P90X system as well as a couple of FREE gifts since they ordered through you, a coach! What Beachbody will do in return is give you the coach $29.99 for your referral. How great is that!? About right now you are going oh…so Coaches get paid on commission. Yes they do! However the thing that I have noticed after being a Coach is that we have had our lives changed by a Coach and by these products so we have so much more invested in it than commission. I recommend products because I know they work and have changed my life or others I know! No different than recommending a movie that made you cry, felt awe inspired, or made you feel good about yourself! And then that movie theatre said here is $2.50 for recommending to your friend to see this movie here. Again, simple and a win, win for everyone!
Team Beachbody also has a system in place for Coaches willing to help others not only get fit and healthy, but help others get into the Coaching opportunity! That’s right TBB will give you additional income from helping other Coaches! This system is called a Team Cycle Bonus. As you help other Coaches whom you have referred to the Coaching Opportunity they become a part of your team. The more you help them, help others, the more Team Beachbody will pay you for it!
Also, after you have helped two others become Coaches and pay it forward Team Beachbody starts giving you members and you get paid for the products they purchase as well! Where do these members come from? The 100 million dollars in infomercial, ads, and web content Beachbody puts out! Remember how I said TBB automatically places members with Coaches when they purchase products…these are those members!
I know this is a 30,000 foot snap shot, however I would be more than willing to go into much further detail with anyone who wants to know more.
"So do Coaches get FREE Products"
Team Beachbody not only gives you money to recommend products by helping others get healthy, pays you for helping other Coaches help others get healthy but they also give you 25% discount on everything they produce…every thing! So, you may not get free programs or supplements but saving $30 off of their top products is pretty darn great!
"Wait, WAIT... so How money can I make?"
The fantastic thing with this opportunity is that you can make as much money as you want. I’m not kidding you when I say it is limitless. This is entirely up to you. This is your business. No one is your boss; no one is going to tell you how much money you are going to make. There are people that make $30 a month in this business and there are people that are making $80,000 a month in this business…not a typo…a month! I personally know people who make six figure incomes helping others! To have your own business with such a small investment of $39.95 with no inventory to keep track of, or ordering to deal with…to throw a cliche in here, the world is your oyster! You can not find this opportunity in any other company in this industry or any other!
"I'm not sure I can COACH, will I be trained?"
Team Beachbody has a fantastic online resource that you get when you sign on to be a Coach. They have a Training Academy that helps you get started literally 15 minutes after you sign up! Not only that, you get me to personally walk you through it and will be available to those who truly want to make the most out of this opportunity, through in-person meetings, phone calls, texts, or emails to answer any and all questions you have. I can help you learn exactly how to help others while helping yourself!
"Ok... I have to ASK, this sounds like a Pyramid scheme.. is it?"
I know we’ve been all trained to watch out for things that sound too good to be true. I was the same way. I did not want to get duped, bamboozled, hoodwinked, or scammed. As with that we have all become overly sensitive and are missing out on great opportunities because we are so afraid to get one pulled over on us. So let’s think about this, do you think a multi-hundred million dollar, well known company in the United States would not have the been busted for this in the 5 years they have been doing this? I know, I know…you are still skeptical. So let’s look at the basic definition of a Pyramid Scheme.
“A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.”
So what it’s saying is in order for it to be a Pyramid Scheme is that I would have to have a participant sign up under me. Give me money in the exchange for promises of becoming rich but with no actual products or services given in return. This is not how it works..the only money that is ever exchanged through TBB is the money you pay directly to Team Beachbody for products or coaching fees which include 4 different personal websites given to coaches to recommend products.
Just a FINAL note:
So in closing…if this is the first or last thing you read…Team Beachbody had changed my life previous to becoming a Coach. It has not only financially changed my family’s lives, but has given me such an immensely rewarding way to help change people’s lives after signing up! With Coaching I can make a very healthy living off of just being there for people and recommending known solutions to their problems. I do not have to worry about being fired, downsized or laid off. As I am my own boss and the Health and Fitness is a multi-billion dollar industry that is not going anywhere! With Team Beachbody having expanded into the Hispanic market and making its way into international waters there is plenty of room at the top! Who’s coming with me!?
