My mom and I started our business in July 2011. Since then, we earned the title of Elite two times, and we continue to be in the top 1% of the company. Below, we’ll outline how to find the best Beachbody Coach for you. We also share our experience with the company over almost a decade!

Note: Beachbody officially became BODi in March 2023, and we are still top BODi partners!

How to Find The Best Beachbody Coach For You

A Beachbody Coach (now called a BODi Partner) can help you with any questions, offer support, and also help you get back on track when you’re feeling less than inspired. 

The really cool thing about Beachbody coaching is that there is someone just like you (or who you strive to become).

There are female coaches, male coaches, and coaches in their 20s to their 60s all over the United States, Canada, and the UK! Each one of these coaches are at a different point in their weight loss and fitness journey and have their own unique offerings and personality.

So there is someone you’re bound to connect with and really like!

We highly recommend finding someone that treats Beachbody Coaching as a business though. 

As a client or someone thinking of signing up to coach, you want to find someone that is going to be around long-term to help you grow.

You also want to make sure they’re consistently showing up.

So find someone you LIKE that also is as committed to this as you are to their personal growth.

What’s Considered a Top Coach?

Beachbody recognizes Top Coaches in a variety of ways. The first is with rankings and compensation.

Coaches can also earn titles like Elite and Success Club All Star for their success, as well as, annual trips.

We have earned the title of Elite, as well as, Success Club All Star, and we’ve been on several trips including Disney, a Caribbean cruise, and to the Maya Rivera.

Depending on your goals, you may choose to set a goal for a title, rank, income, or all 3. We currently focus on optimizing our income.

Why We Quit Beachbody Coaching

Yup, we quit back in 2011. 

Well, actually I (Kalee) signed up with someone randomly on Twitter (remember when that was a thing?!) in the summer of 2011. Once I signed up, she told me to set up my website and that was about where the conversation ended.

I had no clue what I was doing, and after receiving a 2nd box of Shakeology, I cancelled everything.

It wasn’t until March 2012, that my mom and I decided to sign back up and commit to coaching as a business.

At that point, we really started searching out who the best Beachbody Coach was for us — We wanted someone plugged into corporate, was consistently showing up and doing well, and who offered training to her team.

After talking to 2 coaches we researched, we picked a coach and never looked back.

Now, we actually lead our own team, Sweat Nation, and offer a private training website and accountability group for them!

We help coaches get started, grow their social media accounts so they’re not hitting up family and friends to buy something, and walk them through how to host both free and paid challenge groups. We also teach them exactly what we did to grow our business to where it is today!

Why We Came Back to Beachbody

I mentioned above that I quit Beachbody Coaching back in the day. I cancelled because I didn’t understand how to make it a business, and I didn’t have the training to get going (even though I had the initiative to take action).

At the time, I had over $30,000 in student loans, and my parents had just lost their home due to the real estate bubble.

So my mom and I knew it would be nice to create an extra stream of income.

It’s also fair to say we aren’t super talented at making anything. So we looked at our hobbies, and we loved to workout and eat right.

So we started digging into how to make that an income.

Personal training required too many hours away from home, and the income was limited to the hours and clients we were able to work with.

The idea of teaching classes online was scary because 1) we’re introverted and 2) the liability insurance was crazy expensive.

We weren’t sure we’d make it as a food blogger because we weren’t great cooks, and our photos weren’t that pretty.

So — we started looking at affiliate companies.

It was clear — we were Beachbody girls.

We loved TurboFire and ChaLEAN Extreme, and we always bought a new DVD program even if it meant not going out to eat that weekend or not buying a new top.

So we started researching coaches and learning about how Beachbody Coaches make an income.

How Beachbody Coaches Make an Income

Every BODi Partner makes 35% commission for BODi memberships and subscription plans. Partners also earn 20% commission off anything else bought through their online website.

It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new or the top Beachbody Coach / BODi Partner — everyone makes the same commission.

This isn’t always the case in multi-level marketing companies — a lot of the time the percent is small at first and gets bigger as you grow a team.

We liked that everyone has the same commission structure because we could set an income goal and knew how much we needed to have go through our site to hit that goal.

Beachbody Coaches can also build a team like we did, and they earn a weekly bonus when the team does well.

So now, that makes up a large part of our income as well, but it happened very organically. Our clients wanted to coach when they saw results, or people saw us doing well and wanted us to train them, and that’s how Sweat Nation started!

Are there already too many coaches to become the BEST Beachbody Coach?

No way! 

Beachbody is always creating new workouts and supplements that fit different personalities and lifestyles, and they’re expanding coaching into other countries like the UK and France.

Plus, a lot of coaches only coach for a hobby or even just to make a little mad money a couple times a year. Only a small percent of people are actively working it as a business.

So there is plenty of room to grow and build a business.

The 3 Things You Need to Know Before Signing up

Over the past 9 years, we’ve learned a lot.

In my opinion, there are 4 specific things that really determine whether you’re successful or not in this business.

1) It’s not a get-rich-quick thing.

Unlike other multi-level marketing sales pitches, Beachbody never promotes itself as a get-rich-quick opportunity.

While you can make a large income coaching, we recommend thinking of it as a sales-based or client-based business. At the beginning, you’re going to have to build that cliental and creditability.

2) You have to talk to people – not hardcore sales, but you’re going to have to share to be successful.

We often hear, “I’m introverted!” or “I don’t want to sale!” when people are considering coaching. And both are great things to talk about before signing up.

We’re definitely introverted, and we knew this had to be an online-business for us because we could chat online WAY better than going to a party.

We also are not salesy. We really focus on helping people looking for help.

3) Consistency is King.

You really need to show up everyday in this business — even if it’s a quick post in your client group or on your social media.

It’s also worth noting that whatever you’re doing right now tends to show up 3 months from now in your business.

It’s like a snowball. You have to build it, and you’ll see the momentum as that snowball gets rolling.

4) You don’t have to like EVERY program or supplement.

You don’t have to love Shakeology or a specific workout to be a great coach. Beachbody has so many workouts, nutrition programs, and supplements that you can pick and choose what you share about and recommend.

For us – we focus on things we love like LIIFT4, 21 Day Fix, Energize, and Recover. We also drink Shakeology, but we prefer Chocolate over the other flavors.

You also won’t see us really talking about Daily Sunshine because we don’t have kids or Insanity because we’re not big on cardio. Both are great products for someone – but not for us.

I’ve never felt or looked better, and I love being a part of their coaching team! – Carrie Scott 
Before working with Kim and Kalee, I felt guarded sharing my fitness journey and doubted my abilities as a coach.

Kim and Kalee have been an amazing blessing in my life. Prior to meeting them, I was struggling with which workout programs and supplements would help me reach my fitness goals.

Their challenge groups help keep me accountable which has typically been my biggest struggle! – Beth Anne
