I am often asked to break down the compensation plan through Beachbody and since I'm sure other people are wondering the same thing, I'll spell it out below. (It's pretty awesome) Everyone's goals can be different, some coaches are only in the business to earn a discount on Shakeology or even get it for free each month (My paycheck has covered the cost of Shakeology and any fitness programs I order since I started with Beachbody) Here's the breakdown for what it costs to become a coach and how much you can earn. The sign up cost is $39.95 - this includes your first month's business fees and business tools you get sent in the mail. If you sign up for a Challenge Pack this fee is waived. A Challenge Pack is your choice of Shakeology and a fitness program together. This fee is also waived/reimbursed for Active Military and their spouses. If you are a customer who's purchased a Challenge pack and you become a coach you can get reimbursed for that also. The only mandatory on-going cost is a monthly $15.95 - this covers everything from taking, processing, shipping orders, doing the accounting, customer service ect ect. (Plus you save $32.00 on your Shakeology each month when you become a coach so it is still cheaper to be a coach rather than signing up as a customer) How do you make money? As a coach you earn a 25% commission off anything purchased through your Beachbody sites. The commission you earn depends on the product. A bag of Shakeology is about a $32.00 commission, a Challenge Pack commission could be $40 - $100. If you have two challengers join a Challenge with one of the cheaper Challenge packs you could earn over $100. Customers will also often choose auto-ship for Shakeology so they continue to feel amazing but you also continue to earn on it monthly. You get the shakeology commission each month when their order ships. The great thing about the Shakeology commission is that it is not earned by building a team but by helping others get healthy and maintaining them as happy customers. As your customers see their results they will also want to pass the love forward by helping friends and family. This is a business of sharing and as your friends and team share and invite new customers and coaches, you'll start to build a residual team volume income. This is where you start to see a significant growth of income in the form of cycle bonuses. Team bonus cycles can go from $12 - $12,000 a week depending on your rank and volume. Here's a great video breaking it down.. An Emerald Coach earns $12.00 per cycle bonus A Ruby Coach earns $16.00 per cycle bonus A Diamond Coach earns $18.00 per cycle bonus Here is the breakdown of earnings based on rank and averages. This comes from the Team Beachbody Statement of Independent Coach earnings for the year ending in 2012 (it was the latest one I could find) Emerald: Low earnings: $14 Average: $3,353 High Earnings: $261,621 Ruby: Low Earnings: $1,869 Average: $11,011 High: $62,840 Diamond: Low earnings: $212 Average earnings: $18,175 High: $136,818 Star Diamond: Low earnings: $1,299 Average earnings: $90,746 High Earnings: $1,645,484 Believe it or not what sold me on the business was the discount on Shakeology but what keeps me in the business is the Star Diamond Potential. You see I value a thing called Freedom. Freedom to live a life by design. And not any design buy my own. I want to earn the type of income necessary to live a lifestyle my family enjoys and work the hours that I choose. Here's the mission of my team and the energy you can expect. Team Change takes pride and sees value in the journey taken to become happy, healthy, and reverse the trend of obesity. We understand and respect the struggle. We magnify each other's strengths and help strengthen our weaknesses. We use our strengths of encouragement, compassion, accountability, ambition, discipline and passion to inspire and motivate change for ourselves and others in thh direction of personal growth and financial freedom. Being a Beachbody Coach is about creating a life that you'll love. Being the healthiest version of yourself and helping others do the same. You cannot truly help others until you love and take care of yourself. I can't tell you how strongly I believe in that. I KNOW it to be true. That we can all do great things and you can make amazing things happen in this business. You can change the way health looks in your life, you can help people just like you work on getting healthier, while also helping others create financial freedom in their lives. I've never seen a business like this in my life and I'm so grateful for the opportunity. Want to apply to be a part of my team?
