Beachbody Coach FAQ

I get the following questions a lot so I decided a blog post was in order!

1   1What does it take financially to be a Beachbody Coach?

You can sign up for free with any Challenge Pack. The Challenge Packs include a workout of your choice, 30 days of Shakeology, and a 30 day club membership which includes Beachbody on Demand – Beachbody’s streaming service. If you decide to sign up without a Challenge Pack, it’s $39.95.

Both sign up options include access to an online office that we use daily with trainings and tracking systems, 3 websites for people to order from you, and access to all of my Team’s Training. It’s $15.95 to maintain you Beachbody coach membership, and that’s usually covered from one sale.

You can sign up to coach for free if you or your spouse is either active or retired USA military (and become a coach without having any sign up or monthly fees)

2. Do I get free products or a discount as a Beachbody Coach?

Yes! You get 25% off any of your personal orders. If you are already drinking Shakeology everyday, you will save approximately $30 every month on it just with your discount! That’s $360 a year or about $170 after the monthly coaching fee.

3. Can I be a Beachbody Coach just for the discount?

Yes! If you are drinking Shakeology every month, it makes complete sense to sign up for the discount. The same goes for it you are using the other supplements or ordering products frequently. Here’s a little more on becoming a Beachbody Coach for the discount.

4. Why should I Join Beachbody?

Everyone will have a different reason WHY they sign up. For me, I signed up because I wanted to help people, find a job I loved, and help pay for our daycare and mortgage.

Beachbody was the perfect company for me and my family because I love the products and I can do this at home on MY Schedule! It also helped that Beachbody is a well-known, reputable company. Their workouts and supplements are always in demand, and people are always wanting to improve their health.

I also loved that Beachbody wasn’t focused on recruiting a ton of people or high pressure sales. I’m not a sales person and I have never liked the feeling of selling!  I really want to have coaches that are passionate and excited to help people versus thousands of people that just want to make a quick buck.

Another perk is that you don’t have to stock any products or host parities (unless you want to). I have been able to grow my business completely online, and I can teach you how as well through my teams continual trainings.

5. How do I find my first clients and coaches?

I walk you through step-by-step how I grew my business. If you decide to join my team of coaches, I provide you with a daily email lesson or a Coach Basics Bootcamp to help you get started. I provide examples, how-to videos, and everything you need to be successful.
I honestly know if a shy mom working full time can do this, anyone can! Plus I will be there to help support you if you decide it’s a good fit.

6. What if I try it and don’t like it?

It’s super easy to cancel, and I’ll still be your coach for any health or fitness questions you have.

Does being a Beachbody Coach sound like something you’d like?

I’d love to help you get started and get to know you better!!

Can I Join as a Coach just for the Discount?

Can I Join Just for the Beachbody Coach Discount?   YES!

I get asked a lot if you can become a Beachbody coach just for the discount.  The Answer is: YES, you can start earning the 25% Beachbody coach discount immediately too without ever “coaching” someone.

Why join for the Beachbody coach discount?

As a Beachbody coach, you get 25% off any order. So if you’re into the 21 Day Fix, and you’re dying to try the 21 Day Fix Extreme you could sign up and get 25% off your other programs!

The 25% is even more beneficial to Shakeology customers. You can save approximately $25 on Shakeology each month after your coach fees! That’s $180 to $300 a year for doing nothing but signing up to coach.

You can also save the 25% off Shakeology Boosts or the Performance Line as well! 

Don’t let the title of “coach” scare you.

If you want to rock this business, I am here to help you every step of the way; if you just want the discount and to be a regular client, I am happy to do that too.

Just because you signed up for the Beachbody coach discount does not mean you have to actively coach others.
Why aren’t other people doing this? Well, they actually are! Beachbody stated that nearly 85% of coaches sign up only for the discount! Pretty cool, huh?

How much does it cost to sign up?

You can sign up for $39.95, but if you’re in love with Shakeology or need a workout program it’s best to do the challenge pack.

The challenge pack includes the workout of your choice, any flavor(s) of Shakeology you’d like, and a 30 day club membership which includes Beachbody on Demand! With the pack, it’s FREE to sign up.

The packs are also discounted below coach price! (I can’t even get it that cheap!)

Each month it’s $15.95 to maintain your coaching status, but if you’re on Shakeology you’ll be saving $25 a month after the coach fees.

Pumpkin Spice Roll-Out Cookies

We made a batch of these Pumpkin Roll-Out cookies to see if they were something Asher would want to take for his class Halloween party on Friday.  Asher and I made them together on Sunday afternoon while Fraser was napping and the boys had them for dessert after dinner!  The result was a nice soft not to sweet cookie (unless you add icing to it). 

Pumpkin Spice Roll-Out Cookies



·         1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
·         1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
·         1/2 cup pumpkin puree
·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract
·         2 cups whole wheat flour
·         1/2 teaspoon baking powder
·         2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
·         1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or water

  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking Powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer or with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and coconut palm sugar for 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated.
  • Turn the speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture. Continue to mix until the dough comes together.
  • Shape the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. When the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 325F.
  • Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick, and use cookie cutters to cut into shapes.
  • Transfer to a Parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Asher made the icing for the cookies

For the icing: combine the ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth.

These turned out great!  Recipe modified from weelicious

Guilt Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifle

Guilt free HEALTHY - Pumpkin Spice "cheesecake" Trifle that is 21 Day Fix Friendly and super easy to create! Nobody will know you didn't even break a sweat making it๐Ÿ™Š (and you won't have to "break a sweat" to work off the calories either!)

I made this last night and I wasn't too sure at first, the pumpkin layer was a bit more runny that I thought it would be and there is very little sweetness added to it so I wasn't sure if hubby would like it or not.  I ended up deciding to try a new recipe "Maple Cream" to add to the top of it to add a little sweetness just in case but in the end it probably didn't need it although the maple cream added a very nice touch!  

As for this being 21 Day fix friendly it totally is, and it's Gluten free as well.  I would could this as 1 Red container, 1/2 green container, 1 orange container and 1 Spoon.  Because it's gluten free it has no yellow containers but it could also be counted as a treat so you could just count as one yellow treat.  For me I'd count it as what's in it since I hate to give up a yellow container and because it does have greek yogurt in it which counts as a red I think i should get credit for the red and 1/2 green containers!!  

This week I'm going back to the 21 Day fix workouts, and I have to say I totally thought that after doing 21 Day Fix Extreme the regular workouts would be easier but they really aren't. They are just different.  I'm actually enjoying going back to these workouts this week with my group and sharing how we did each day for accountability.  We have such an awesome group this round!!  

21 Day Fix is still on sale this month (October) so if you have been thinking about joining one of my accountability groups, this is a great time to get your kit.  

You can email me at for more information. 

Guilt Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifle


Crust Ingredients:
1 cup almond flour
2-3 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg, cloves and ginger 
1st Layer:
Plain greek yogurt
2nd layer:
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt (or vegan alt.)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Dash of ginger, cloves and nutmeg
1 Tbsp honey
Crushed pecans
1/2 tsp honey
* Extra treat Maple Cream 


Pulse all crust ingredients in a small food processor until well combined. Transfer to small bowls And Press crust into serving dish evenly and bake at 350 until lightly brown. 

Scoop out desired amount of yogurt and layer on top of crust inside serving dish. Place dish in refrigerator while preparing your 2nd layer.

In a blender, puree all 2nd layer ingredients until smooth. Remove dish from refrigerator and pour 2nd layer evenly over yogurt.

Pulse pecans with a drizzle of honey in food processor or magic bullet. 
Top 2nd layer with crushed pecans and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. *Option to drizzle a small amount of maple cream on the top before serving. 

Maple cream
Place the maple syrup in a saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer. Fill a large bowl with ice water and place another saucepan on top of the ice. Heat the maple syrup over medium heat until boiling (do not stir, but do not walk away because you don't want it to boil over! if it boils up, lower the heat.) and cook until it reaches 235 degrees F. Once at 235 degrees F, remove from the heat and pour the syrup into the saucepan that is sitting in the ice water bath. Let it cook for 5 to 10 minutes. Once slightly cooler, begin to stir the syrup with a wooden spoon until it's creamy. This can take about 15 minutes, so instead, I poured my syrup into my magic bullet and pulsed it. But I think next time I would put it into my stand mixer. Once it's a light colour and pourable, stop beating because it can thicken quickly.

Triple Layer Coconut Treats

Triple Layer Coconut Treats


3/4 cup organic Coconut Oil
1 Scoop Chocolate shakeology ( OR 1/4 cup cocoa powder 1 tsp honey)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter, smooth or crunchy and honey to taste


Heat coconut oil until it is melted. Divide it among three bowls. 

In one bowl, stir in the shakeology until completely dissolved. Or if using cocoa powder stir in with honey to taste. 

In another bowl, stir in peanut butter until smooth. Add honey to taste. 

In the last bowl, add to the coconut oil honey to taste.

To make individual candies, use a silicon form. I used a mini loaf pan, but mini muffin cups would work well,  as would candy molds. The pan I used it epicure. 

Divide the chocolate shakeology flavored oil among about 18 of the moulds just so it covers the bottom of each. 

Set the mixture into the refrigerator to set. Be sure the mold rests evenly. Chill for about 10 minutes. 

Once the first layer is set, Spoon or pour the peanut butter mixture over the chocolate layer. Return to the refrigerator to set. 

When firm, take out and pour the remaining clear layer over the peanut butter. Chill until ready to serve.

They Don't look all that great here but once you take them out they look awesome and taste amazing too!

Pumpkin Cake Cheese Cake

This is the second time I've made this recipe and both times it turned out great.  If you have ever made cheese cake you know that it can be hit and miss.  Just ask my sister who made one for my birthday a few weeks ago!  Even the same solid recipe used a second or third time can turn into a big flop.  But so far I've loved this recipe and I love the combination of cake and cheese cake together.  

The first time I made this Pumpkin Cake Cheese Cake was for my mom's Birthday last year and we had intended on doing a picnic so I cut the cheesecake out with mason jars and stored it in the mini jars for our picnic!  Sadly my photos of it weren't great so I was excited to make it again and take a few photos. 

It's funny everytime I make this recipe, I feel like there isn't enough cake batter to make it look 'good' but then I cut into it and it's perfect.  Funny how that works!  

Pumpkin Cake Cheese Cake



  • 16 ounces (448g) full-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) Organic Cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60g) plain greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon (8g) all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs


  • 3/4 cup (180ml) coconut oil
  • 1 cup (200g) coconut palm sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/3 cups (318g) pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)*
  • 1 cup (125g) whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Adjust oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. Wrap aluminum foil on the bottom and tightly around the outside walls of the springform pan, as shown in photos on the How to Prevent Cheesecake Cracks page of Sally's Blog.  Set aside.
Make the cheesecake first. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and sugar together on medium speed in a large bowl - about 3 full minutes until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add the greek yogurt, vanilla, and flour and beat until combined. On low speed, add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition until just blended. Do not overmix the filling after you have added the eggs. Set aside.
Make the pumpkin cake. In a medium bowl, whisk the coconut oil, coconut palm sugar, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin together until combined and uniform in texture. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, other spices, and salt together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until no large lumps remain. Avoid overmixing the pumpkin cake batter.
Spread 1 and 1/2 cups of the pumpkin cake batter over bottom of prepared pan. On top of the pumpkin batter, drop large spoonfuls of the cheesecake batter. Top with large spoonfuls of remaining pumpkin cake batter. Repeat with remaining cream cheese batter. It does not have to be neat and perfect. Do not swirl with a knife. Just plop it all down and pour the cheese cake batter into the pan!  Trust me. 

Place the springform pan into a large roasting pan and place into the oven. Fill with about 1 inch of hot water. The foil wrapped around the pan will prevent water from leaking inside. 
Bake for 65-75 minutes or until the center is almost set. If you find the edges are browning, loosely place aluminum foil on top of the cake as it bakes. Once done, turn the oven off and open the door slightly. Let the cheesecake sit in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely at room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight (preferred). Loosen the cheesecake from the rim of the pan and remove the rim.
On the Original recipe she also included a cream cheese icing but I felt that it wasn't likely necessary and because my mom and I both don't like super sweat desserts I figured we didn't need it and we didn't!  
MAKE AHEAD/FREEZE: This pumpkin cake cheesecake freezes well up to 2 months, covered tightly. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

Thanksgiving Dessert!
