Team Beachbody New Coach Training Explained

Coach Basics Team Beachbody | The Graues


SHOUTout time…one of our favorite things to do! Any Katy had DEFINITELY Earned it.

But in this post we also wanted to shed some light on the New Coach Training that we provide for the new coaches that join our team. We’ll do that below…BUT FIRST, let’s celebrate Katy’s success.

This past week we put the finishing touches on another 30-day New Coach Camp…and Katy was SHINING BRIGHT throughout! We started at the end of school, a BUSY time for a school teacher.

Katy had recently completed her first round of 22 Minute Hard Corps while incorporating Shakeology…and she got AWESOME results. Throughout Coach Camp she learned the skills to connect with other people and invite them to join her on her continuing journey.

She is now making a HUGE impact by hosting her OWN Beachbody Challenge Groups monthly while paying it forward in a big…BIG…BIIIIIIIG way. In her FIRST Challenge group, Katy lead 18 men and women and she has gone on to help well over 50 people in her first 5 months of coaching.

Because she had put the focus on helping OTHERS succeed and put in LOTS of effort and energy to help them be successful, Katy has been able to earn greater than $5,000 since May.


Katy wears MANY hats…wife, mom to a 1 year old son, PE teacher and now Beachbody Coach (…and others for sure). Please extend a BIG congrats on her awesome results AND more importantly for taking the step to PAY it forward for so many.

Team Beachbody Coach Training

Now, part two of this post is about the training that our new coaches are offered. We choose to make use of many of the great training tools that Beachbody has already created.

That’s one of the huge benefits of joining a network marketing based business model…you don’t have to totally reinvent the wheel. The company, in our case Beachbody, makes your easier by creating training and tools to support your success, especially from the start.

But after mentoring new coaches since January 2010 we have also but together our own 30-Day New Coach Camp as an extension of the awesome tools Beachbody has created.

We have one focused goal…help a new coach start their FIRST Online Challenge Group.

In doing so, a few other cool things happen. One, the new coach likely ends up earning enough income to pay for their Shakeology (or often times more…even in month one). And, two, the new coach feels empowered, significant and confident because they have had a hand in helping at least 3 people begin a lifestyle change.

Yes….there is A LOT to learn about coaching, but we don’t really even bring up becoming an Emerald Coach, Diamond Coach, Team Cycle Bonuses, Star Diamond Bonuses, etc. We FOCUS ON THE FUNDAMENTALS and establish a strong foundation that pairs well with the purpose and mission of Beachbody as a company. Their goal and our goal as coaches is simply this:

“Help people achieve their goals and live a healthy, fulfilling life.”

So THAT is the foundation that we build on. In fact, here is a day by day breakdown of what our New Team Beachbody Coach Camp Training looks like, after a brief 3 day “getting to know you” period where we also take care of some technicalities like scheduling of LIVE Group Zoom video calls.

If you want to focus on doing and learning everything at the start, or want a team culture that is built around inviting first to a join a business…we are not your mentors or your team.

But, if you can buy into the mission above and want to focus on becoming the BEST version of yourself through a self development programs, improved nutrition and more consistent exercise…then we are your mentors and team.


I want to be REALLY clear…we don’t shy away from the opportunity to earn a significant income. Not at all. In fact, we’ve created a checklist of milestones to work towards earning a consistent $500/week as a Team Beachbody coach that you can download here.

But we’ve just learned the BEST way to achieve financial success that lasts is to become excellent and consistent and focusing on the mission. If you meet people where they are at physically (or financially)…and then show them the tools that can work for them, you significantly increase the likelihood of good things happening for both parties.

This is how Katy created her success.

She SHOWED people how to be successful with the programs and then she courageously invited and supported people to reach their goals. It’s the same approach these amazing ladies have taken to create significance and success.

You don’t have to OVERcomplicate being a Team Beachbody Coach.

What is the Beachbody Leadership Ladder?

beachbody Leadership Ladder | The Graues


When you set out to play a new game you generally have a sense of how you get started, how to play and how to win. Spending a few minutes reviewing the rules and available resources helps all participants. It also shortens the learning curve.

When it comes to being a Team Beachbody Coach we have many tools and resources, and some rules to help guide us, too.

There have been thousands of coaches who have lead the way to help determine best practices and tools for being a successful coach.

These ordinary, busy people have proven that ANYone can choose to create a healthy life of freedom and purpose.

The main tool available to us when we first started coaching in 2010 was the Beachbody Game Plan. The Game Plan was a list of 10 activities that a coach could to do consistently to be successful.

The Game Plan evolved over time from 10 things to 7 things, and NOW we have the 4 Vital behaviors that guide us DAILY.

Our team has frequent 30-day New Coach Camps to help learn the fundamentals to start quick and master the 4 Vital Behaviors.

Another way our training has evolved is the introduction of a new, powerful success tool…

…the Leadership Ladder.

The purpose for the rest of this post is to share some key pieces of the Leadership Ladder and how you can adopt it to be a successful Coach.

Download this checklist of milestones to work towards earning $500/week as a Team Beachbody Coach.


Why is the Leadership Ladder important?

Usually people associate success as a Team Beachbody Coach with the rank they’ve earned.

For example… Emerald rank, Diamond rank, Star Diamond Rank…and so on. These ranks are key goals to shoot for, no question. BUT, they don’t tell the whole story.

Their Leadership Ladder “rank” does.

A coach’s Leadership Ladder rank shows a more accurate picture of a coach’s financial success, too.

It shows how successful a coach has been at duplicating their team AND their vision. Why is this important?

Because it’s ONLY through building a team that a coach can exponentially expand their influence and income.

There are many things a coach can focus on to be successful at building a team. They can foster a solid team culture of service (NOT SELL, SELL, SELL…). They can build in accountability for their team. They can build a new coach’s confidence in sharing their own vision. They can model the activities to be successful.

These are just a few…


Becoming a Diamond Beachbody Coach is a big deal deserving of recognition and celebration. But know this… Continue Reading →


Tax Prep Tips for Home-based Businesses

This blog is about helping people to become the healthiest versions of themselves…physically, mentally and financially. The core of what we do is help people work on themselves through exercise and nutrition because it fosters growth in many areas of their lives.

But we will never ignore the gift of our business and our team, and THAT is our focus with this article.

When I started with my network marketing business with Team Beachbody in January 2010, I made the decision that I wasn’t going to be SMALL-minded about my SMALL-business.

I was going to commit to personal growth, continually expand my vision, AND embrace the necessary challenges of that big vision. And most importantly, the FOCUS would be on SERVING first and earning second.

I took the words of Zig Ziglar to heart…“You can have everything you want in life, if you just help enough other people get what they want in life.” 🙂

Download this checklist of milestones to work towards earning $500/week as a Team Beachbody Coach.

I also knew that I needed to acquire some business smarts. 🙂

THANKFULLY, I had some amazing business owner mentors growing up, namely my hero and my father, Dennis Graue. He and many other successful business owners I knew had a “professional team” that they could lean on for guidance, wisdom and expertise.

Doing so also allowed THEM to spend more time doing what they were uniquely talented at…building their business!

So, one of my first decisions was to seek out information and form a professional team to help guide me. That team includes a Business Attorney, an investment professional and a tax professional.

If your network marketing business is a hobby for you, maybe that’s overkill. Maybe.

BUT….If YOU have a big vision of leading a several THOUSAND person team…of earning a 6-figure PLUS residual annual income…or for enjoying the freedom to choose how to spend EVERY day, then I encourage you to put together YOUR professional team.

It needs to be non-negotiable.

What I want to focus on in this blog and video are some simple processes and habits that I’ve been coached by my team to implement, with a special focus on the tax aspect of owning a home-based network marketing business.

That means a review of the yearly process I use to stay organized and measure my business throughout the year AND the tax preparation process I go through each Spring tax season.

Why should you Push Play on the video above or continue reading??

I would only encourage you to continue if you are interested in playing by and staying in compliance with the tax rules while also limiting your tax liabilities, prioritizing funding your retirement AND creating an efficient system for yourself and your tax professional.

I’m going to keep this simple and focused by answering my 2 most common questions…

What is a Shakeology 365er?

Shakeology 365 image | The Graues

Well…BIG day today. 🙂 The coveted faux gold scoop of the Shakeology #365er showed up in the mail today.

A Shakeology”365er” is someone who has enjoyed a Shakeology health shake daily for at least a year.

Actually, by our calculations we are more like 2,230ers. 🙂  While we have changed flavors and switched to packets on occasion for convenience when traveling, neither of us has EVER stopped or delayed a Shakeology shipment since we started in January 2010, 2 orders a month.

To be honest…we almost weren’t “1ers” LOL!

A Shakeology 365er is someone who has enjoyed a #Shakeology health shake daily for at least a year. Click To Tweet

My Team Beachbody Coach, David, recommended I incorporate Shakeology into my P90X nutrition plan back in late 2009. He sent me this awesome was compelling and I wanted to order it.

..And then when I went to order it I saw it was about 3X the price of the vanilla protein powder I was using daily to make fruit smoothies. So, I initially balked.

(Was this your experience, too?)

BUT, in truth, I was comparing apples to oranges. Really, really awesome, nutrient-dense “oranges”.

ALSO, in truth, it was still more than $1 a serving LESS than what I was routinely enjoying as my healthy (but nutritionally inferior) go to meal of choice at the time, Black Bean soup, an apple and water from Panera.

So, I decided to give it a try on a trial basis…and today a gold Shakeology scoop arrived in my mailbox 6 years and 1 & 1/2 months later. I also have stopped taken vitamin C, B complex vitamins and calcium daily, too, as they are no longer needed with the addition of the shake.

This health shake absolutely will continue as a part of our overall health plan. Nutrients and health ….. Long term.

And it helps that I REALLY enjoy it, can take it on the go and share with the kiddos, too. (You can even make them Shakeology popsicles, too.)

Anywho…we’d encourage you to suspend further judgement if you’ve found this post researching whether or not you should start Shakeology.

Don’t forget…even if you don’t enjoy it (which we don’t expect) you can return it for a 100% refund. Why not try it.

If YOU are unfamiliar with Shakeology OR have been on the fence about incorporating it into your daily meal plan…we encourage you to at least TRY a Shakeology 7 day sampler to see how you enjoy it, and more importantly how it makes you feel!

Lastly, cheers to the many customers and coaches that have enjoyed it long term and found value in it like us.
