    Would anyone here be interested in being a BeachBody Coach? As a coach you will earn 25% of whatever beachbody products you sell.

    I'm trying to build my team so I am offering the chance to win an iPad mini. To win the iPad mini, you must be on my team and reach success club 5 (5 points) for the month of March. If you meet these requirements you will be entered into a drawing which will take place on April 1st.

    How to get points:
    1 point: Sell 1 order of Shakeology HD
    2 points: Sell 1 Challenge Pack (Shakeology HD + Program)


    As a coach you will be able to sell any of these programs:

    p90x
    p90x2
    insanity
    insanity: the asylum vol.1
    insanity: the asylum vol.2
    10-minute trainer
    turbofire
    body beast
    brazil butt lift
    les mills combat

    tai cheng
    body gospel
    slim in 6
    turbo jam
    hip hop abs
    rocking' body

    This is a great way for you to earn some side cash and help better your own and others lifestyles. If this is something you are at all interested in please send me a pm or reply to this thread.

    Haha, I wish I could help you out there. If you're a coach you can get it at a 25% discount.

    As someone who is just starting his eighth week in the P90X program, I certainly understand the attraction of the workouts. But, I have difficulty understanding the marketing system that beachbody has set up. It strikes me as something a little reminiscent of Amway were most people make money by recruiting others to sell Amway products versus actually selling Amway products.


    When I went over to Beachbody.com and signed up so that I could post a question on the forums, I immediately had 15 people, all coaches, who wanted to be my "buddy." I don't know about you, but I find that kind of creepy.


    I also read Beach body's pitch as to why you should be a coach. It struck me as a classic sucker pitch. With its promise of the discount, your own free website, plus free content, and ALL you have to do is promote it. (Perhaps not so hard to BHW members, but way beyond your average Joe.) Wow, what a deal, all that plus a recurring payment to you. Beachbody sure knows how to make money.


    But if you have this wired, more power to you!

    It's different than Amway because you're not selling soap. You're selling something that you actually believe in. I don't even look at it as selling really, it's just sharing what works for myself and others and helping people get healthy and fit with these amazing program. It's not false promises that you're selling to people. And you really do get the discounts as a coach.

    I've been on the Insanity program for over a year now. It works, as long as you've got the discipline to eat right along with the brutal exercise portion. I agree with the other person's assertion that the Beachbody Coach Program is sold with a "sucker's pitch"... it is very "Amway-esque."

    What's more is I don't feel I would ever promote Insanity even though I use it because it is SO heavily advertised right now. For example, if you are a DirecTV subscriber like me, half of the channels that are on at night have a full length half hour informercial for Insanity or P90X going. I'm pretty sure TW and all the other big TV providers also have this similarly heavy Beachbody advertising in place. Also, after every Insanity (or other Beachbody product) work out, the video immediately segues into advertisements for Shakeology, P90X, and a whole lot more, cross-promoting all other products to death to people (like me) who paid for rather than torrenting the workouts. Way to punish your customers, guys.

    You, as a Beachbody promoter are literally competing against your own organization (who seems to have an unlimited advertising budget) to promote these products, and the meager rewards just don't justify the effort expended. This product line is the very *definition* of "saturated." Just my $.02.

    I do think the programs and products they offer are excellent based on my own research. Here's the issue for me. They restructured their program to become a quasi network marketing company. Meaning, they are not a true full blown network marking company.

    They still sell directly to their customers via all the advertisements and infomercials on TV, which is definitely not a normal way you would set up this type of business. By circumventing your affiliates/coaches this way, you have a way lower payout system compared to other true network marketing companies.

    Competitive companies usually range 40 - 50% payouts not 25%

    If you are going to develop a network marketing business, then picking a company that competes directly against me for customers is not an ideal situation. It can be done, but it will take a lot more effort.

    Most good network marketing companies if you really examine their business models - the majority of people are product users, not business builders. You want companies that offer real value and that should be the foundation for any successful business. Beachbody has good quality products.

    Best of luck in your future endeavors.
