Earlier today I was asked the question, “What is the starting Beachbody Coach salary?” Which I kind of thought was a strange question, but I guess if someone doesn’t know how the business works, the question makes sense.
How Much Is A Beachbody Coach Salary?
Beachbody Coaches do not earn a “salary” or an hourly wage. Each Beachbody Coach is the owner of their own business. Officially they are referred to as Independent Team Beachbody Coaches and every Beachbody Coach salary starts at $0/week. Beachbody Coaches are paid on their own individual efforts. If someone signs up to a Beachbody Coach, and puts forth a decent effort and treats their business like a “real” business, then they will be compensated appropriately. On the flipside, if someone signs up to be a Beachbody Coach and doesn’t put forth any effort, obviously they won’t make any money money and their “Beachbody Coach Salary” will remain $0.
How To Raise Your Beachbody Coach Salary
Remember, there is no such thing as a “Beachbody Coach salary“. Coaches earn money 2 ways, from the products they sell, and from bonuses from the volume created within their organization.
Generally, Beachbody Coaches earn a 25% commission from the products they sell. So if a Coach sells Shakeology, which retails for $120, they earn a $30 commission. If a Coach makes 5 Shakeology sales in one week, that Coach will earn $150 for that week. Not bad cash for referring someone to a website. Coaches aren’t required to have inventory or ship the product, all they have to do is send their customers to the website that Beachbody provide them when they join, and if a sale is made, the Coach gets the commission….POW!!
In addition to retail sales, a Coach also has the opportunity to build a team of Coaches and earn bonuses on all of the volume created within the team. This is a form of leverage and is where the “big” money is made. As one Coach, there is only a certain amount of sales you can realistically make yourself, but if you have a team of a few hundred, or even a few thousand Coaches, your team volume numbers will be high and you will be earning some nice size cycle bonuses.
The team cycle bonuses are too complicated to explain in this post, but you can read more about them and how they work by clicking here. If you are thinking about becoming a Beachbody Coach, you don’t need to know the exact specifics of everything right from the beginning. The compensation plan can be complicated for someone new in the business, I personally didn’t understand it fully until checks started to roll in.
The takeaway I want you to get from this post is that the is no such thing as a “Beachbody Coach Salary“. What each Coach earns depends entirely on that their effort.
