Hey Team

Welcome to November! With the holiday season right around the corner, you basically have two choices right now. First, and the option I highly recommend AGAINST, is to "write off" the rest of the year, eat like a pig, and wait until the gyms fill up for the first week or two in January to finally get off your ass and get moving.

OR, you could put a plan into motion NOW to get fit, change your diet, and be well into your new lifestyle before 2014 even starts! Wouldn't it be great to see family over the holidays and everyone notice how much you've changed? I don't just mean losing weight, by the way. Sure, that is a nice side effect of healthy eating/exercise for some of you. Instead, think of how great you will feel! People walk differently, their postures improve, and they just overall feel much better in their own skin when they eat well and stay active. That is called confidence. Makes you feel like a million bucks. Luckily, we have solutions for everybody!

Lots to cover this week. Sorry if some of this is repetitive to some of you, but we have lots of new team members this week, so I want to make sure everyone is caught up with everything going on right now!

1. If you haven't already, make sure to check out our Facebook accountability group Team Fitness for Life. We have an amazing group of individuals keeping each other motivated/inspired to keep active and eating well.

2. Helpouts by Google launched yesterday (November 5th). I have already helped a man from Lebanon and another from California with some health and fitness questions. This is a remarkable opportunity for me, and I am really excited to see what sort of opportunities await!

3. My first ever 60-Day Coach training program got underway this past Monday. The group is already doing really well and showing great initiative. I just know that the 60 days' worth of training will benefit them all, not just with their businesses, but in other aspects in life too. I am already looking ahead to start the next group on Monday December 2nd. If you have ever thought about Beachbody Coaching and are possibly interested in signing up, please let me know so we can discuss. I am open to having video chats with anyone interested, so that you can have a one on one, face to face with me and get my honest opinion about the opportunity!

4. Don't forget, P90X3 launches on December 10th! If you order by December 15th, then you are guaranteed to have it by Christmas. Even better than that, you can join my P90X3 Challenge Group and progress through the program with a group of us. Even though we all like to workout in the privacy of our own homes, research has shown that a lot of people thrive in a group workout setting. Being a part of our Challenge Group on Facebook, gives you that group mentality, which can be incredibly encouraging and motivating!

5. I have sent quite a few free Shakeology samples out lately. If you are one of those people and would like to order, but are unsure of what flavour would be best for you, remember that there are more Shakeology options available, including a "Shakeology Taste Sampler." (Limit one per customer) You get 4 Shakeology samples - 2 chocolate, 1 green berry, 1 vanilla. It is a great way to pick your favourite before ordering a full 30-day supply.

6. On Mondays to Fridays, at 8pm, I am posting links on my Facebook page to some of my favourite and most popular blogs from the archive. Here are the posts from the past week:

Enjoy the Journey (Because you can!)
Meal Timing
Tyler's Book Club
Go Fast and Then Go Home
Is 'Junk Food' really cheaper than 'Healthy Food'?
Genetics Count

7. Blogs from this past week:

Illegal Downloads
Tony Horton's One on One Road Warrior Modifications
"Friends don't let friends skip leg day!"

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my blogs and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!

2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, tylerrobbinsfitness.com. It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions, writing my blogs, filming my videos, and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!

Everyone have a great week!

How much money can you make as a Beachbody Coach?

I get this question often enough, especially from folks who are interested in potentially becoming a Coach. So how much money do I make, and how much money do Beachbody Coaches make? 

I will start off discussing my personal experiences as a Coach and then go on to discuss stats surrounding everyone else. First of all, I am not  going to give any monetary figures in this blog. One, I don't wish to come off as 'bragging'. And two, it's not really anyone's business, so there!

I want to also start off by saying that I have been like an "unofficial" Beachbody Coach for years now. For those of you who have been following my YouTube channel and blog know, I have been blogging and video blogging everything Beachbody and health and fitness-related for years. I have been an athlete my entire life, I love to be active, and I love the science behind everything health and science related.

Becoming a Beachbody Coach (when it was finally made available to us Canadians) was a no-brainer for me as I knew this would be just another outlet for me to help others lead healthy lives. I like to think that I have always been honest with my reviews, and I know for a fact that my blogs have helped so many stay informed, so as cliched and as corny as it sounds, that is very fulfilling for me. If you don't believe me, go and look back all of the blogs and videos I made prior to signing up as a Coach on October 1st 2012. I was connecting and helping others online for years prior to even becoming a Coach!

Beachbody Coaching is certainly not  a "get rich quick" scheme. I know many hear the phrase "pyramid scheme" and run for the hills, but I will say that anyone  has an opportunity to make a sustainable earning. Whether that is a part-time earning or a full-time earning is strictly up to each individual!

I know I have heard lots of folks commenting on the fact that the Beachbody Coach market is so diluted and diverse already, what is the point of becoming a Coach as there is no real way of making it profitable. This couldn't be further from the truth! At the time I am writing this blog, there are roughly 120,000 Beachbody Coaches in North America. There is over 500 million people in North America, not to mention the fact that I have heard that the Coaching opportunity is aiming to expand to the UK and Europe in the future (possibly sooner rather than later!)

I am not yet at the point where I can make Beachbody a full-time career, and it may never reach that point, but as I said earlier, I enjoy doing what I do (helping others) so I will continue to do what I do, so I might as well be a Coach and earn a bit of money on the side.

From the money I earn as a Coach (I have been a Coach for just under 10 months at the time I am writing this blog) I am able to put my earnings towards: 

  • No longer having to pay for any Beachbody programs I want
  • I no longer have to pay for my Shakeology
  • I have purchased new fitness equipment (dumbbells, squat rack, weight plates) 
  • I am currently in the process of re-modeling my basement and home gym
  • I pay for athletic events that I enjoy competing in (Tough Mudder, World's Toughest Mudder

When I attended the Beachbody Coach Summit, it was incredibly inspiring to see a parade of Coaches being honoured on stage due to their "financial freedom" from their full-time jobs, their debt, their mortgages, etc. The reality of the matter is that a lot of Coaches may never reach that point, but the opportunity is there to earn as much as you wish! 

This is not a plea to grow my team, because to be perfectly honest with you, as a Beachbody Coach, I technically earn more direct commission from regular paying customers than I do from Coaches on my team, but just like helping others achieve their health and fitness goals, I enjoy creating a team of like-minded individuals who wish to make an earning (at any level) by helping others. 

Statistics & Rank – Beachbody Coach Income

How many Coaches are there? – Currently there are almost 120,000 coaches within Team Beachbody. A lot of the people who sign up do so to become what is known as a "discount Coach" to get a discount on their regular purchases, like Shakeology. This is a perfectly viable option for a lot of folks who find themselves purchasing Beachbody products on a consistent basis since you get a 25% discount on all Beachbody products. Other people put in the time and effort into building a home business while helping others reach their health and fitness goals.

Does Beachbody pay ALL Coaches a commission? – The answer is no. Not all Beachbody Coaches make a commission. Like I said, some only become a Coach for the discount. Roughly 32% of those who sign up to be a Coach never receive a commission from Beachbody. That means that 68% of Coaches have chosen to use the opportunity to grow a business.

The best part about this the Beachbody Coach income is that when you help others succeed, you succeed as well. Its the same philosophy with the workouts as well.

Now for the part you have been waiting for…
