Q: Why should I consider becoming a coach?
A: As I went through my first round of P90X, becoming a coach was the last thing on my mind. However, my coach pointed out that I should consider being a coach to save money on my own purchases (I was on Shakeology Home Direct, so by becoming a coach I would actually SAVE money each month). I still didn’t know if I wanted to dive into coaching until I neared the end of my P90X journey and started to develop a true passion for how amazing this program works. All my friends were asking me what kind of workout I was doing, so I found myself talking about P90X all the time. I wasn’t selling anything to anybody, but my results were a walking advertisement. Then, when my transformation video hit YouTube, I was literally bombarded with questions about what worked/didn’t work for me, and I saw the opportunity to really help others catch my passion for P90X. Plus, by becoming a coach, I am now accountable to keep pushing play, keep getting more RIPPED, and keep setting a good example for my players. I can’t get lazy when I’ve got all of you looking up to me!! If you are passionate about P90X, want to help others with the program, and are willing to be accountable as a coach to keep BRINGING IT, then I encourage you to consider coaching.
Q: How do I become a coach myself?
Q: How much does it cost to become a coach?
A: There is an initial $39.95 fee and then a monthly charge of $14.95 for your back office. The back office is a website that Beachbody provides for you that keeps track of your sales, team sales, customers, commissions, as well as some training, sales tools, and much more. The $39.95 fee is waived if you sign up and purchase a Challenge Pack at the same time, which include a program of your choice and Shakeology.
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. It just depends on what kind of coach you want to be. You can be a coach simply for the purpose of saving money on your own products (for example, if you currently use Shakeology, the amount you save on your Shakeology purchase each month is more than the monthly fee to be a coach, so you’ll already be ahead!). Or, if you want to make the investment of time to turn your coaching into a great part-time (or even full time) business, Beachbody is the perfect way to do that. You are a product of the system, and your own results are a walking, talking advertisement that will bring people to you! Plus, you are backed by Beachbody’s multi-million dollar advertising budget.

Q: Do I have to have a great transformation to be a coach?
A: No! You have to have a passion for helping others and the desire to succeed. The earlier you start, the better. Having a great transformation is just the icing on the cake, because my coaching business has literally exploded due to the response to my transformation. Let that keep you motivated as you go through the program (Tell yourself that you can literally turn your results into a profitable business! That might give you the extra incentive to Bring It!!)
Q: What if I’m not very knowledgable about fitness?
A: You don’t have to be a fitness expert to be a coach. I wasn’t when I first started. However, I’ve done a lot of research to learn as much as I could about fitness in general (and P90X / Insanity / One on Ones / P90X Plus in particular), nutrition, and supplements. The best time to start learning and becoming an expert is NOW!
Q: Will I get the proper training?
A: Beachbody has an excellent training program called the Game Plan, which you will need to understand when you sign up to coach. I have also created my own training program to provide you the knowledge to be a successful coach.
