We are THRILLED that you are here and ready to start learning so you can achieve success and start teaching others!
We believe that Team Beachbody isn’t just a business model, a network marketing company, or a distribution channel for Beachbody products—it is a movement. We are a tribe with a mission to save ourselves, our children, and as many others as possible from the horrible health epidemic that is plaguing humanity (particularly in the U.S.).
I believe that good ideas can be spread. That’s what we do. We spread the simple healthy habits we’ve learned through our own fitness journey to other people. We help them get over the same walls that we’ve made it over. We set up structures, like Challenge Groups, that create space for people to be successful.
We can’t make anyone do anything, but we can create environments for them to choose to be successful. When they make that decision, the idea spreads further.
Being a Beachbody Coach is really that simple. You learn—how to give, how to empathize, how to communicate the idea and your knowledge. And, if you are like us, you realize that our society is in desperate need of change and you become a warrior and you practice incessantly.
And, you succeed. Then…you teach.
The outcome of this process is that your customers learn the essential life skills that you learned when you did the program and you pick up a few new ones.
Being a Sponsor (AKA a “Business Coach”) isn’t much more complicated.
You begin by learning how to form Challenge Groups. As you practice simple disciplines, you make a lot of mistakes and you get better. Once you’ve learned the system and had some success, it is easy to teach it to someone else. You just keep repeating the cycle—learn, practice, succeed, teach.
Your goal is to become a leader.
To become a leader, you must become a mentor and that’s a powerful thing. You can be a great Coach, and an incredibly important part of the movement, without ever becoming a mentor, but you won’t be a leader until you learn to mentor the people on your team.
Mentors teach other people how to teach. They dig deep into the lives of the people they mentor.
Being a mentor means, at times, being uncomfortable. Realizing that you set the standard, and that the person you mentor will watch your every move, is a little scary. Establishing trust and close relationships requires time and effort. Getting honest with people isn’t easy, but it is necessary. Handling the disappointment when someone close to you doesn’t see the world as you see it (even if they said they did), and leaves our ranks, is tough.
On the flip side, there is an incredible reward when you establish this kind of relationship and you make another person’s “WHY” your “WHY” and help them get there. There is no better feeling in the world. You can bet it will be that person’s goal to do the same and pay it forward.
And, so the cycle repeats—learn, practice, succeed, teach.
Now that we understand all this, let’s talk about why we believe Team Beachbody was created.
I believe Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon realized that the infomercial business would ultimately be very successful at selling products, but it could never grow into a movement. It’s hard to rally around a TV set. A movement requires people. It requires leaders. It requires YOU.
How do you get people to take up the cause and effect change?
An easy way is by compensating them for doing so. This picture can be difficult to see, but we believe Beachbody compensates us for educating people about health and fitness. We get paid to take the secret veil off of fitness and nutrition and show people that it really is pretty simple in the end. We are rewarded for organizing people and moving them in the same direction.
You won’t find a line item in our weekly check for most of the work we do, but our compensation is directly tied to how effective we are at spreading these ideas and helping people get healthy and fi,t and then teaching as many people as we can how to do that very same thing.
Ultimately, our position as leaders in this business will depend on our ability to be a mentor to others and how well we can teach them how to teach others.
This is why we created FCN Coach Training.
We needed a way to give you the start you deserve. We needed a way to teach you the basics of being a Team Beachbody Coach. There is plenty of time to focus on the larger issues.
For now, dig in with the First 30 Training.
Learn that process. Then, go to work. Start to practice the invitation process and track your progress. If you do, it will lead you to succeed. Then, and only then, will you be in a position to teach.
And, then, the cycle will repeat—learn, practice, succeed, teach.
