I have people asking me on a daily basis what being a beach body coach means, what it can do for them etc. I decided I would put together a quick FAQ post and answer most of the questions I get, any other questions just shoot me an email and let me know and I will add them to this list or answer you personally.

There is an initial $39.95 fee (includes your Business Kit) and then a monthly charge of $14.95 for your hosting fees for the 4 websites that Beachbody gives you, plus your back office website.
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! When I first began, I was spending around an hour a day learning the ins and outs of the business. As my business grows, I dedicated more and more time until it eventually will become my full-time job.

A: No, the Beachbody Coaching Opportunity is not a scam. It’s not a pyramid scheme. It is an actual business that provides actual value!

The extent to which you develop your “downline” is up to each individual. You can be very aggressive to create a long downline of Coaches and retail sales. As someone involved in fitness or working on your own fit & healthy journey, you’ll find yourself having the same conversations you would naturally when people ask you the many questions they often do about “getting fit”, losing weight, and “how are YOU doing it”.
