How Do You Become a Beachbody Coach

how do you become a beachbody coach

How do you become a Beachbody coach? First of all, I’m glad you’ve found my site! For those of you who don’t know, that’s me over there in the picture to the left, my name is Josh Spencer, and I’m a 14 Star Diamond, 3 time Elite, and won Top Beachbody Coach 2010. I’m also a full time Beachbody Coach and have been since 2010. I’ve been a Beachbody Coach since July of 2008 and have established one of the top Beachbody Teams in the nation, Team Next Level. We have had a TON of success as a team, and have even kept the Top Beachbody Coach Award within the team for the PAST 3 YEARS!

(Become a Beachbody Coach on Team Next Level!)

Taking the Next Step

Congrats to you for taking a step forward in your life and at least thinking about starting your own business as a Beachbody Coach. I was in your shoes back in 2008, and it can be both scary and exciting, but have no fear, if you join the right coach and Beachbody team it can be a very fun and enjoyable process. However, if you rush into signing up as a Beachbody Coach and sign up under someone or a team that doesn’t have success or experience, it can have quite a negative impact on your future success and income. So what I’m going to do for you now is give you 4 things you absolutely need to think about before becoming a Beachbody Coach!

What to Look For in a Beachbody Sponsor

(1) Previous success. Is the Beachbody Coach you’re about to sign up under have any success? What rank are they? How long have they been in the business? Do they have a supportive upline/team? Take the time to find out these things, as they are very important for your individual success. The longer they have been in the business, the more supportive the team they have, and the higher the rank they are, the greater the chance you have in becoming a successful Coach yourself. Also, pay close attention to the success of the coaches underneath them! If those coaches aren’t successful, then chances are they don’t have a great system of duplication.

(2) Does the Beachbody team you’re about to sign up under have a training system? If you’re wondering how do you become a Beachbody Coach, you need to first look ahead a little and think about what your next steps will be in getting started. Will there be a training system that you will be immediately plugged into? The last thing you want to happen is get signed up and be stranded, wondering what to do next. Make sure there is a proven and effective training system in place! On my team, we have an excellent training system. Not only do we have our own private training website, but we have a 30 day New Coach Bootcamp that you will immediately be plugged into as well. Once you get through those trainings, you will have the option to join more advanced trainings and bootcamps.

(3) Does your sponsor have time for you? This is a legitimate question. I have a TON of coaches come to me and complain because their current sponsor never gets back to them in a timely manner and doesn’t stay in contact with them. Because I am a full time Beachbody Coach and manage my time very efficiently, I always have time for the new coaches that join my team. If they ever need to set up a call, I’m always here for them.

(4) Does the sponsor and team you’re about to sign up with have integrity and ethics? This is something that is VERY IMPORTANT to me and should be to you as well. You don’t want to join a Beachbody Team who is out to just sell products, but rather join with someone who puts others first and is out to change as many lives as possible. Throughout my entire coaching career, I have made it a priority to only sign coaches who have integrity and are in this business for the right reason, and that’s to help others. I have even turned away people because I didn’t feel they were in line with our goals and mission as a team.

If you’re wondering how do you become a Beachbody Coach, again, make sure you consider the 4 points I addressed above! It’s important that you become a Beachbody Coach with the right sponsor and team. If you are looking to be a Beachbody Coach on my team, Team Next Level, and I’m already your coach, just click here! If not, feel free to reach out to me at I’d be more than happy to answer any questions that you have and steer you in the right direction. Remember, BE SMART about your decision because it can affect the rest of your life!

Elite Beachbody Coach Josh Spencer

elite beachbody coachIf you don’t know, my name is Josh Spencer and I’ve been a Beachbody Coach for the past 5 years, and an Elite Beachbody Coach for the past 3 years. I got into the Beachbody Business a few months after my first round of P90X solely for the reason of helping others achieve the results that I did! I developed a passion for health and fitness, and I have always been passionate about helping others, all going back to my involvement in the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization back in high school, so becoming a Beachbody Coach made sense to me. Shortly after, I formed my team, Team Next Level, and I guess the rest is history! I became a full time Beachbody Coach in 2010, won the Top Beachbody Coach award in the same year, was a Top 10 Beachbody Coach in 2011, and an Elite Coach in 2012. Crazy enough, we have kept the Top Beachbody Coach belt within Team Next Level for the past 3 years!

What does it mean to be an Elite Coach? What it all comes down to is that I’veteam next level been able to help a LOT of people over the years with both the fitness and business. My responsibility as a coach is to help as many people as possible get healthy by recommending Beachbody products that I have used and have worked for me (make me your coach), and to be a leader and help other Beachbody coaches on my team do the same. Being an Elite Beachbody Coach means that I have done that very well! I have helped thousands of people make a positive change in their life since I started coaching back in 2008, and honestly, there isn’t too much that is better than that. When I wake up in the morning, I’m excited to get to work (even though it doesn’t feel like work) because I know that I’m going to have a positive impact on more people’s lives that day. How many people can say they are excited to go to work every day? Not many. The greatest feeling, though, is when I get an email or message from someone letting me know that without my help, they aren’t sure where they would be today, and they thank me for having the confidence in them that they can change.

Top Beachbody Coach Tips

  • Passion. You have to be passionate about helping others! If not, forget about becoming successful, let alone an Elite Beachbody Coach. 
  • Recommend, not sell. If you’re not a “product of the product,” meaning you have used Beachbody products and gotten results with them, then you will be selling the products instead of recommending them. I recommend Shakeology because it’s something that I have been taking every day for the past 3 years that has WORKED for me, so I’m confident it will work for others as well. Make sense?
  • Find a mentor. If you’re already a Beachbody Coach, hopefully you signed up with a successful Beachbody Coach or one with a successful upline. If you’re not yet a Coach, though, MAKE SURE you sign up with a Coach that has had a lot of success! If you don’t have a mentor to teach you the Beachbody Business, it could take a lot longer for you to find success.
  • Create concrete goals! I have a goal board that I write all my goals on. Make sure you write your short term, medium term, and long term goals down, and put them somewhere you will see them every day.
  • Stay organized. Read “Eat That Frog” by Brian Tracy.
  • Treat the business like a business. If you work extremely hard day in and day out and treat this as you are starting a brand new business (which you are), then in time you can become an Elite Beachbody Coach.
  • Patience. Success takes time! With fitness, you can’t work out and eat healthy today and expect to wake up the next day 100 lbs lighter, right? No, it takes hard work and commitment to the workouts and diet day in and day out, and over a long period of time you will reach your goals. The Beachbody Business is the same way. If you are doing the RIGHT things daily, over time you can become an Elite Coach.
  • Ability to overcome obstacles. You will struggle, and how you handle those rough times depends on how successful you will become. Instead of getting frustrated by obstacles, accept them, make adjustments, and continue moving forward.
  • Ability to step outside your comfort zone. If you don’t do things that aren’t comfortable, then you’re not moving forward. Pushing yourself outside your comfort zone DAILY!
  • Be a leader. You have to be a leader to the coaches on your team. Read leadership books, study those who are great leaders, and improve your leadership skills every day.
  • Stay positive. Everything that you do should be positive. Remember, people want to be around and follow people who makes them feel good! If you’re being negative, you’re going to have a hard time getting people to follow you.

As an Elite Beachbody Coach for the past 3 years, I hope you have found my tips helpful. If you’re not a Coach yet and want to become a Beachbody Coach, feel free to reach out to me at Remember, in order to be successful in anything, you have to have a PASSION for it!

Top Post Workout Supplements

top post workout supplementsFor the past 5 years I have been doing a lot of research and have been trying to figure out the top post workout supplements. Some have worked, some haven’t. Some taste good, some don’t. Some have better quality than others. Me personally, I’m a quality kind of guy. I won’t take a supplement if the quality is crap, and believe me, there are a LOT of them out there! So many companies claim their products to be healthy for you, but in reality there are a lot of hidden and potentially dangerous ingredients in them. Anyways, I talked about the top preworkout supplements a few weeks back, and now I’m going to focus some attention on what I feel are the top supplements to take after your workout.

First and foremost, though, before you purchase ANY supplements, MAKE SURE you do your research on the company and the ingredients listed on the supplement before you purchase anything. Don’t take my word or anyone else’s word for it, and go out and find out for yourself if what you’re about to purchase is truly healthy or not. Hopefully you’re like me and pay close attention to the quality of the products you consume because, well, this is your body and health we’re talking about! You might look and feel alright, but on the inside you could be doing some damage if you’re not taking in post workout supplements with some bad ingredients in them.

Shakeology ReviewIf you don’t take anything post workout, it’s about time you start. After you work out you have about an hour time span to eat food or take a supplement that will help with recovery. I like taking supplements so that I don’t have to prepare actual meals, but others are different. Ideally, you want something that has a good balance of both good protein and simple carbohydrates. Why simple carbs? Because they are digested quickly. When you work out, you deplete your glycogen stores, and it’s important that you take in simple carbs so that you replenish those stores, but they also serve as carriers of the protein to the muscle cells as well. The quicker you replenish the stores and get the protein to the muscles post workout, the quicker they can start repairing themselves. Also, look for a post workout supplement that contains glutamine as well, which has been shown in studies to aid in the muscle repair process.

What are my top post workout supplements? Glad you asked. I have 2 of them, and I switch back and forth quite often. One actually isn’t made to be a post workout supplement, but rather a meal replacement, but because of all the vitamins and nutrients and the balance of protein and carbs, it serves as an excellent post workout supplement as well. That supplement is Shakeology. I’m not going to go into the details of what’s in Shakeology because I would have to write a dang book because of all the ingredients, but it’s about as healthy of a supplement that you can get. (Nothing in it is bad for you, period. If you want to check out all the details about it, click here). When I make my Shakeology post workout, I blend it up with almond milk, organic peanut butter, and a banana just to boost the calories quite a bit. However, it’s prefect as it is for post workout recovery if you just want to add water and shake it up. I am always sending out Shakeology samples, and if you’d like one, just send me an email.

Next is the post workout supplement that I have been taking for about 5 years now, and that’s the P90X Recovery Formula. I like the Recovery Formula because it has exactly what I need post workout for proper recovery. It contains a 4:1 carb to protein ratio, along with excellent ingredients to repair damaged muscle, such as creatine, arginine, and glutamine. I really like the taste of it as well. It sort of tastes like an orange cream-sickle, and all I do with it is stick some ice in a shaker cup and shake it up. You could also blend it up with some whey protein if you would like some additional protein, which is something I used to do quite often in the past. It’s simple, quick, and does its job.

When it comes to the top post workout supplements, those are the two that I take and recommend. They both rock, and have helped tremendously with my results over the years. I hope from this post I was able to show you the importance of taking a supplement after your workout because if you don’t, you can really slow down the repair process.
