A Beachbody Coach Review

Written by Greg Plaskett

Many people ask me how to become a Team Beachbody Coach. Everyone’s story is different, and yours will be too. I’m so glad that I answered this opportunity when it knocked on my door.

Here’s my story.

In 2008, the economy was in crisis and I was let go from my corporate job.  I was actually fired after being a top performing employee who received bonuses for the 8 years. So the news I received was shocking! When I look back now I think it was an easy way for the company to cut back with out an official layoff and having to pay unemployment, but I get on that soapbox 😉 At that time, I felt like I let my family down…deeply.  I’m a husband and father and I’m supposed to take care of my family. I was lost. I was frustrated. I was scared.

It was the hardest thing that has ever happened to me, and….the best thing that could have ever happened to me and our family.

My wife, Christine and I knew we had to do something, and something fast. We had 2 kids to take care of, a mortgage and all of the other expenses that a family endures.

We decided that I was going to do something different, as IT jobs were now offering half of what I was making before. We wanted to buy a gym in the area, but the cost was $200,000. We just couldn’t come up with or borrow that kind of money. So we decided to open a lawn care business and slowly built that business over the next 3 years. That opportunity gave us the flexibility we needed to take care of our children, but didn’t offer us the kind of money we dreamed of having for our family.

December 2010 came around and being shut down in the winter helped contribute to me gaining 21 pounds. I was worn out from completing 40 Fall cleanups and decided to chill out. And suddenly, this once fit guy, wasn’t fit anymore.

Become A Beachbody Coach with Greg and ChristineThat’s when P90X was introduced to us. And after getting in the best shape of our lives, we learned about what it meant to become a Team Beachbody Coach from high school friend. After listening and learning about what being a Beachbody Coach was all about, we jumped right in and officially signed up as coaches in July of 2011. We knew this was an amazing opportunity that was going to allow us to bring my wife Christine home from her corporate job.

In April of 2015, Christine received a phone call from her job that there was a layoff and her services were no longer needed after a 25 year career and was let go. But because I was making enough money as a Beachbody Coach, we didn’t have to worry about financial strain like we did in the past.

We love showing people, especially couples, how to become successful as a Beachbody Coach to improve their physical and financial health.

It’s interesting, Christine and I use to always joke that we were meant to win the lottery. Looking back, we now realize that the Team Beachbody Coaching opportunity was our winning lottery ticket.

Below we’ve included some of the most common questions that people have asked us about becoming a Team Beachbody Coach.  We hope they answer some of your questions.

    There is so much more to Team Beachbody

    A Little History: Beachbody started in 1998 as an infomercial company. People started sending in their amazing results from a program called Power90. Still available today and was Tony Horton’s first program.

    In 2007, Team Beachbody was formed. A network of people who were fans of the products after getting results and sending them into Beachbody became passionate distributors for the company. They didn’t know if it would work, but they had an open mind.

    In 2009, Shakeology was launched and to this day is a Market Disruptor. Shakeology provides residual income to you as a coach and greatly increases your overall health.

    The important thing to know about being a coach is, it’s NOT a Get-Rich-Quick Scheme. It is NOT a Pyramid Scheme. In fact, Beachbody is the 32nd fastest growing Direct Selling company in America, with an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

    Beachbody is a result’s driven company, NOT a sales transactional company. If you’re a salesperson, this may not be for you. If you love to help people, then this could be the right opportunity for you!


    One thing we don’t touch on much is the income you can make when you become a Beachbody coach. When we first started we spoke to our Upline Star Diamond Coach and wanted to know what he was making and how long it took him. We needed to know what was possible.

    What he shared is what drove us and what helped us set our goals over the past 3 years. Our 2016 weekly income goal is now $8,000-$10,000 a week. Yes…that is a weekly goal and is possible with hard work, discipline and consistency. We’ve been staying healthy ourselves and paying it forward for over 5 years and are living an amazing life of time and financial freedom for the first time in our lives. Let us show you how to accomplish your goals.

    Knowing that you have an unlimited income, from helping people get results with Beachbody products, is extremely rewarding, motivating and darn fun.
