First, what is Beachbody?
Beachbody is the market-leader in home fitness programs. They created workouts you've probably heard of like P90x, Piyo, Insanity and 21 Day Fix (among many others). Their coaching side of the business is a partnership between the company and independent reps who sign up to promote the products and help people get plugged into a fitness routine that's right for them.
How do Beachbody Coaches make money?
At its core, Beachbody Coaches support clients through their fitness and health journey by recommending workouts and other fitness-related products. Once a customer purchases a fitness program, their coach also keep them accountable as they work their way through the workouts and meal plan.

How are Beachbody Coaches Paid?
Coaches are paid two ways:
- Commission from workout programs and other products (you make about 25% on anything you sell),
- Receiving team cycle bonuses (this is a sales bonus based on the performance of your team overall).

*What is Personal Volume?
As a coach, in order to stay active, you have to purchase at least 50 points of "Personal Volume" (PV for short). This is under $100 worth of products per month, so not a huge investment, but not insignificant. If you don't buy product, you can still be a coach, but in order to be eligible for the bonuses mentioned above, you have to be actively buying the products as well. The higher the rank, the more PV you are expected to purchase.
The Realities of Becoming a Beachbody Coach
By now you're probably thinking WOW, I can make a fortune at Beachbody! Well, maybe you can, but know that those at the top of this company (like any other company) worked incredibly hard to get there. Most coaches don't progress to leadership ranks because it requires an enormous upfront effort with little payout for the first year (or more).
While I'm not trying to discourage anyone from trying coaching (because there are rock stars that rise every day in the company), I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking it's easy!
How much does it cost to sign up as a coach?
To sign up as a coach, the initial investment is $40. However, it's always recommended to sign up with a challenge pack (a combination of a workout program and a supplement pack) so that you can start your own fitness transformation and speak intelligently about the product. A challenge pack is roughly around $140 - $160 USD.
In addition to the sign up fee, there's a $15.95 monthly website fee. This is your personalized website that will enable you to sell product.
That's it! If you want to stay active, you'll want to continue to buy products, but that's not a requirement. You never have to pay for training or buy inventory.
