This post is for my friends in the United Kingdom. I’m getting a lot of questions recently about the fitness programs and nutritional products Beachbody offers, since news of the Beachbody.co.uk was recently released.
In this post, I wanted to share answers to some of the more frequently asked questions I receive about the United Kingdom launch. I don’t know the answer to all the questions I’ve been receiving, as I know more, I will update this post with the new information.
The Availability of Beachbody Programs in the UK
The workout program DVDs are NTSC, which means they play in the standard UK DVD player. Yes, I had to look that one up! You have two options for accessing the programs. You can order the DVD package, or you can access the programs with Beachbody On Demand. You get the same materials with either option. The key difference is Beachbody On Demand is all digital (streaming workouts & pdf materials) and if you purchase the program on its own, the program are physical materials (dvds, printed guides, etc.)
Here is a list of the current Beachbody programs and other company products available:
- 21 Day Fix
- Core De Force
- Country Heat
- 3 Week Yoga Retreat (on demand only)
- 22 Minute Hard Corps
- Tai cheng
- Insanity MAX:30
- Body Beast
- Master’s Hammer and Chisel
- Slim in 6
- 21 Day Fix Extreme
- Fixate (book)
- Insanity The Asylum
- Insanity, The Asylum Volume 2
- Portion Fix (portion control diet book and container system)
- Rockin Body
- Hip Hop Abs
- Chalean Extreme
I have a number of reviews and helpful blog posts about many of the above mentioned programs if you’re interested. From the sidebar located to the right, you can find many of these posts organized into categories by program name.
Access All Programs with Beachbody on Demand in the UK
Beachbody On Demand is a member area that is included with a Team Beachbody Club membership. The Club membership allows access to all of Beachbody On Demand workouts to be streamed over the Internet.
From my understanding, the UK version of Beachbody On Demand is the same as in the States. I’ve written a detailed look at Beachbody On Demand All-Access Annual Pass and what it offers.
The cost of Beachbody On Demand All Access Annual Pass in the UK is £99.85 yearly. This allows access to all digital versions of the current programs and future programs. For the most value, this is by far the best option that you have.
How to Order Beachbody Programs in the UK
There are currently two ways to get Beachbody workout programs in the UK. Ships anywhere in the UK.
Beachbody includes the shipping costs into the price on Amazon. On Beachbody.uk, the shipping price is added on separately. They will come out to the same price in the end.
Prices in the UK are very competitive with the US prices. For example, the 21 Day Fix workout program in the United States costs $59.85, and in the United Kingdom the price is £59.85. With today’s exchange rate, the cost in dollars would be about $74.81.
Whether it is Beachbody On Demand or single program purchase, there is at minimum a 30-day money back guarantee protection. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, you may return for full refund minus any postage fees.
Is Shakeology Available in the United Kingdom?
Different countries have different rules and regulations when it comes to nutritional supplements. The UK Department of Health similar to the FDA in the states regulates the food supplement industry in the United Kingdom.
Shakeology is not available at this time in the UK. This does not mean it necessarily contains ingredients that do not fit the Department of Health standards, but I would assume it would still need to pass inspection. I believe this will be the same for any of Beachbody’s other nutritional line of supplements for now.
Is a Free Coach Available in the UK?
When you purchase a Beachbody product in the US, you can get access to a coach who is there to support you and help you reach your health and fitness goals. However, assigned coaches are not available in the UK as of this time. I’ll go over the Team Beachbody “coaching” below.
The good news is that there are a lot of other resources available to you. And if you ever have any direct questions you would like personally answered, please leave a comment on this blog or feel free to send me an email.
How to Become a Team Beachbody Coach in the UK
I believe in the very near future the time will come when you will be able to join us as a Team Beachbody Coach in the United Kingdom. This will allow individuals in the UK to begin working aside this company help motivate others to reach their health and fitness goals?
I can’t yet tell the exact date coaching will be opened up to you, but if you want to be the first to know about it, I created a specific email list that you can subscribe to here. Just make sure to confirm your email address once subscribing to ensure you are notified properly.
