Frequently Asked Questions:
1.What is a Beachbody Coach?
Beachbody refers to their influencers as “coaches". They call them coaches because we are more than just “distributors” or “reps” or “influencers”. While we have the ability to sell and suggest fitness products and workouts, we are also VERY vested into mentoring people to a healthier lifestyle.
We think of it as this: Some of us want to help others reach their health goals whether we are compensated or not. Some of us have been answering health related questions and providing information while on our own journey or apart of another job in our lives, now we get to receive compensation for what we were doing naturally.
2.Who can be a coach?
ANYONE! It doesn't matter where you are on this health and wellness journey. You might be at the beginning and what some extra accountability and support. You may be in the middle and know your story can help others find their way along this path. Or you might be a professional in the health and wellness field and you want to take your business to the next level and reach more people. As long as you are committed and dedicated to staying accountable, you can help others become accountable in their goals too!
