I have some good news. It will not cost you a fortune to get started as a Beachbody Coach.
The simple answer? It costs $39.95 to become a Team Beachbody Coach. This is the standard sign-up fee to receive your Coach starter kit to begin.
However, there’s a chance you could get the Coach sign-up fee waived, which we will go over below. Or if you’re already a Beachbody customer, there may even be a way to get the fee reimbursed.
In this post, we are going to cover:
- The options that are available to become a Coach.
- The costs of each option.
- The monthly Coach membership fee and what it covers.
- I will also cover what/if there is anything else you would need to buy.
There Are Many Options to Join…But, Which Option is Best?
There are a few ways sign up.
It doesn’t matter which method you choose, everyone gets access to the same new Coach welcome materials. The starter kit includes the New Coach Welcome Book, access to the Coach Online Office, your own personal Coach website, and lots of support tools.
Quick note: If you are in the military, you’re a military veteran, or you’re the spouse or partner of a military member, please refer to this post.
Option #1 – Flat Fee
Pay the flat $39.95 Team Beachbody Coach enrollment fee. This is the standard option of joining. It’s exactly how I got started.
The flat rate introduction is best for people who are already Beachbody customers, are also All-Access Annual Pass Club members, who do not want to order a physical Beachbody DVD package and/or Shakeology.
Option #2 – Challenge Pack (fee waived)
Get the sign-up fee waived by ordering a Beachbody Challenge Pack when you join.
A Beachbody Challenge Pack includes a Beachbody program and Shakeology on HD shipping. You go through the same process as Option #1, but when checking out, you select a Challenge Pack. Simple.
This option gets you signed up as a Coach for free because you don’t have to pay the standard $39.95 you will pay with option #1.
Tip: Challenge Pack prices vary! Beachbody runs monthly specials on certain Challenge Packs that can save you $20. If there is a program you’re interested in, this would be the best option, or you can also choose the Beachbody On Demand All-Access Challenge Pack for the best value.
Option #3 If You Previously Ordered a Challenge Pack (fee reimbursed)
If you previously ordered a Challenge Pack, you can get the sign-up fee refunded with the Customer to Coach program.
To take advantage of this program:
You will sign-up as a coach paying the $39.95 fee. Then, you fill out a simple online form that asks you when you originally purchased the Challenge Pack. Submit the form. Within a couple of days, the refund will processed and sent to you.
It doesn’t matter which option you choose, since there is a 30-day, 100% refund policy if you decide coaching is not for you for any reason.
What Do You Need to Buy as Beachbody Coach?
I hear a lot of false information on the topic of what you have to buy to be a coach. Here are many of things people think they have to buy, but really you do not.
- You do not need to buy Shakeology.
- You don’t even have to stock inventory.
- You do not need to pay for any workout programs.
- A subscription to Beachbody On Demand is not required.
- You do not need have to be a Team Beachbody Body Club member.
However, it does make sense to order Shakeology HD when you have reached Success Club 5 or 10. This is a whole other topic I’m not going to go over in detail now, but if you are hitting Success Club 10, Beachbody gives you paying customers that generally make up for the cost of your Shakeology order.
The Monthly Cost of Being a Beachbody Coach
Here is another area of confusion about Team Beachbody coaching. You do not have to buy anything monthly as an active Coach either.
However, Coaches do pay a monthly coach business service fee. This helps cover the cost of your personal Team Beachbody Coach website, which is where you people go to order from you.
The monthly coach business service fee is $15.95 every 30 days after joining. Selling a single program in a month can cover this monthly fee.
How Much It Costs Be a Coach in Other Countries
In Canada, you have the same options to join the Team Beachbody Coach network as you do in the United States. The only difference is that the fees are slightly higher:
Flat Coach sign-up fee: 49.95 $
Challenge Pack fees vary.
Monthly Coach account maintenance fee: 17.95 $
I believe we are going to see the costs of other countries like the United Kingdom very soon, so I will update once that happens.
