If someone you are talking to about coaching has told you that you can become a coach for free they are referring to getting the one time sign up fee of $39.95 waived when you purchase a Challenge Pack when you sign up. A Challenge Pack includes one of Beachbody’s top exercise programs, a month supply of Shakeology, a free 30 day trial of the Club membership, and comes with $2 shipping. So if you wanted to do this you would be sent to a page that looks like this, and AFTER you fill out the initial information to become a coach you will see the option to choose your Challenge Pack to get the $39.95 fee waived. (Here you can see the list of ALL the Challenge Pack options.)
But as far as being a Beachbody coach for ‘free’, unless you are working it as a business and making money from it, it’s not ‘free’. There is a monthly $15.95 fee for your websites, and once you are an Emerald rank coach or above you will also pay $39.95 per quarter for the Club Membership which is a premium membership with meal plans, access to Beachbody on Demand, (and ultimately qualifies you to get customers assigned to you). As a coach you don’t have to carry inventory so these websites are where you direct people to purchase from you, and also where you can manage all your business activity. I usually recommend my coaches sign up with the Challenge Pack option because it’s putting $40 towards your health rather than to the sign up fee. Then the following months you will be charged the $15.95 coaching fee.
If you are signing up with NO intentions of ever working it as a business, and don’t even want people to know you are a coach that is possible. Coaches save 25% on ALL products– so say you are getting Shakeology monthly on auto-ship (always recommended because you get $2 shipping) you will save $30 a month as a coach, so even after that $15.95 monthly fee you are still coming out ahead.
