My mom and I started coaching about 5 years ago, and our Beachbody coach income changed our lives. We rarely share a ton about our income because it just doesn’t come naturally to either of us. We’re both complete “shop the sales” kind of girls, and we’re both quiet. So it seems weird to go, “Hey! I paid off $50,000 in debt and make 6-figures” in our Target sweatshirt.
But we’ve done just that. Crazy right? Another reason we put off talking about our Beachbody coach income is because we don’t want anyone to think it has been easy. It’s been fun, creative, exciting, and challenging – but not easy. Just like any business, coaching takes time, effort, consistency.
It’s easy to sign up to coach, but it’s takes persistence and drive to make a full-time Beachbody coach income. So it’s important that you’re passionate about the products. Then, you have to keep to your healthy habits and be willing to talk about them. Talking about what we were doing was the hardest part for us, but knowing we could help someone made it all worth it….even when we heard (and still hear) NO.
That first year we coached was the hardest 12 months of creating habits and being our own boss. It was a lot of getting out of our comfort zone and just going for it. Nothing in my life – including 4 years at college – has paid off like those 12 months though.
If you’ve been following us, you know that when we became coaches we were in a bad place. I was finishing my last year in college with 30k in debt, and we were losing our home to foreclosure. It’s a thousand wonders we signed up; we didn’t really have the income goals in mind. We really started because it sounded like fun, we could finally not be the ONLY health nuts we knew and maybe we could pay for our groceries or new workouts with the money we made.
More than the income growth, we’ve grown into better people as coaches. We’ve also tripled our teaching incomes as coaches.
With that said, we know you have questions about how Beachbody coaches get paid and if it really is out there for you to do too. In short – I know you can do it if we did, but you have to really want it. You can also learn more about the Beachbody Coach Opportunity here.
Do Beachbody Coaches Get Paid?
Yes! We make a Beachbody coach income through a combination of commissions and bonuses. Some bonuses are weekly while others are quarterly bonuses. We’ll look at the breakdown of making money as a Beachbody coach below.
How to Make Money as a Beachbody Coach
Commission — Beachbody coaches make money through orders and a weekly bonus if they decide to grow a team like we have. The Beachbody coach commission is 25%. Every coach makes 25% off any orders placed through their site, and they also get that 25% as a discount off their personal orders. A coach receives a commission every time an item ships as well. So if they have clients using Shakeology every month, the coach makes 25% every month when it ships.
This commission rate doesn’t change if you are a brand new coach or the top coach; everyone makes the same 25%.
Weekly Bonus — Coaches also can make a weekly “Team Cycle Bonus” if they decide to build and mentor a team of coaches. Since we’ve been coaching for almost 5 years, we have several successful coaches on our team that we’ve helped get started. We also have a great on-boarding process for new coaches, and we spend a lot of time nurturing our team of coaches. Therefore, a big part of our weekly check is this type of bonus.
The bonus doesn’t come from another coach’s income, and it’s only earned if the people on your team are doing well. You don’t make money just for signing people up.
Quarterly Bonuses — Once you hit a certain rank in the company (2-star and above), you can qualify for a quarterly bonus. These bonuses can total up to approximately $50,000 per quarter.
The picture above shows you the Beachbody coach income breakdown based on ranks. Emerald is the lowest rank with 2 coaches on a team, and super star diamond is the highest rank. Learn more about Beachbody Ranks here.
How Much Do Beachbody Coaches Make?
Each person and their business is so different. This means each Beachbody Coach salary will be varied as well. It’s not easy to say how much a Beachbody coach makes based on their time in the business or placement either because Beachbody doesn’t reward someone just for “getting in first”. Someone that signs up tomorrow has the capability of making more than us even though we’ve been coaching 5 years.
About 80% of coaches sign up purely for the discount. The other 20% either fall into a ‘hobby’ income or a ‘full-time income’ coach. Just like any business, what you put in matters in regards to what you get out of it.
Here’s a quick look at our Beachbody salary in the first 16 months. We really started out with little guidance, social media knowledge or training so our numbers are lower than some new coaches on our team as well.
We hit $800 a week about 6 months in. Some coaches grow a lot faster and some grow much slower due to lack of consistency. For the past 3 years, our Beachbody coach earnings have been 6-figures each. And the extra perk is we work our Beachbody business completely online and in PJs most days.
Beachbody coach pay is paid weekly, too.
Beachbody Salary vs Personal Trainer Income
Back in 2011, I was studying to become a personal trainer. I was in college for business, but I really wanted to be able to help people with their health. I figured I could use my marketing classes to help brand myself as a trainer and grow my cliental.
As I began talking to personal trainers it didn’t sound like a good fit though. They worked a lot of nights and weekends when clients could come. Plus, their income potential was limited because there are only so many hours in a day you can work.
That was when I started looking into the Beachbody Coach Opportunity and comparing the incomes. This video really summarized it for me, but if you’re not a video person check out the chart right below it.
- The cost of Beachbody coaching is much lower than getting certified anywhere.
- As a coach, I can reach anyone in the United States from my computer, in my pajamas if I want. :) I have made so many real friends online and love talking to my client-support group every day.
- You put in the effort & your income as a coach is unlimited.
- You can supplement your personal trainer income by becoming an Independent Team Beachbody coach.
Are you debating if Beachbody coaching is right for you?
How Do You Succeed at Coaching?
It’s very similar to being a personal trainer because you are listening to others’ goals and time available and suggesting a program for them. It does take time and sincerity to grow your cliental to a full-time Beachbody coach income, but it is very possible. We’re proof!
We personally help people get started in a free 5-7 day challenge group to help kickstart their habits and goals. Then we work in depth with them to help them choose the best workout for them for a premium challenge group lasting 3-12 weeks. It is so rewarding and fun to watch your clients grow not only in their health but in their confidence.
As your clients hit their goals, you may notice that they are coaching already inside your challenge groups. You then can present coaching to them too to build like a big virtual gym of awesome trainers working together.
That sounds like a lot of work…
We provide you a complete system including a monthly calendar of how and when we promote a challenge group. We outline everything step-by-step for you, and as you begin to feel more confident, you can always put your spin on things too! It really is a job just like personal training is, but the flexibility and Beachbody coach income potential are so much better than training locally. You are also still able to offer your clients new, state-of-the-art programs that you know they will do well with, too!
Do I have to be certified to be a Beachbody coach?
Nope! We do have trainers on our team, but it’s not necessary. You can also choose to get certified in a workout like P90X, PiYo, and Insanity though if you’d like to still have a gym presence!
