Should I do Beachbody?

I’ve recently began playing around with Instagram. I know I’m really late to the party. So far I’m loving it. It’s like Twitter for visual people, which is grand!The things that get’s me most are the delicious vegan recipes. More than once my mouth has started to water just from scrolling through my feed.

I follow some vegans, I follow several Catholics, some bloggers, and some fitness profiles. One of the things that keeps popping up is this company called Beachbody . I’d never heard of it, but I saw a woman post on one of the profiles I follow about fitness and and accountability, which intrigued me. So I commented on the picture and did this Facebook explanation group about the opportunity. She didn’t say it was Beachbody until the third day when she casually talked about how much it cost to join.

Beachbody is the company that put out 21 Day Fix, P90X, and Piyo, all those programs have such amazing reputations and people swear by them. But the infomercials don’t tell you about this really cool accountability coach you can have when you use the programs.

I have spent the past week doing research on this company and there is so much information out there. A lot of good things, and some bad things. I do enjoy health and fitness (as you might be able to tell from looking around my blog). I would love to be held accountable on my journey and to be a support to others on their own journeys, but I’m not sure it’s the right opportunity for me at this time in my life.

Protein shakes are gross and they say you have to drink Shakeology everyday. I guess it isn’t just a protein shake, it’s a superfood shake. But as I’ve said before, I don’t know what determines a superfood and who is allowed to vote on these things. It’s over $100 a month which I think is a little high considering it’s like a fifth of my family’s grocery budget each month. But can you do coaching without it? It is realistically a viable business opportunity. Is the market saturated, because my Instagram feed sure seems to be.

Id’ love some feedback on this. On the one hand I know the programs are amazing and well loved by all. I would love to host accountability groups on social media to support people as they improve their health. But on the other hand, that price is steep and are the shakes worth that much? I don’t know, what do you think?

In the comments below, please let me know what your experience has been, if any, with Beachbody and if you think I should try it. If you enjoyed this post, please consider commenting, subscribing, sharing on social media, and making a contribution to my Patreon.

Thank you, have a sparkly day!

  1. I love BeachBody’s programs, but I hate Shakeology, I hate how they present it, and I hate how their coaches are out here recommending things without an education. They are not certified yet they freely give advice (not all but MOST) and I have seen it at times be so wrong that it could endanger people. I use their programs often to supplement my own training (I AM a trainer) and I have always loved the programs, I have tried the shakeology (not bad but it’s not the “miracle shake” they claim) which is outrageous. If you’re looking for somewhere to start your fitness journey, by all means I recommend their programs. I just really…really do not care for the coaches. ❤
