Can you attend a Beachbody Coach Training Academy and become a Beachbody Coach? Well, you might be too late because it looks like the Beachbody Coaching Training Academy has been retired…sort of.
The Beachbody FAQ
This is a question I found on the FAQs on beachbody.com concerning the Beachbody Coach Training Academy: Why has the Coach Training been retired? The answer basically states that it hasn’t been retired, but it has been reorganized. You can still find training, but it will be organized according to rank level. For more information, the answer directs you to go to other questions or to the Coach Online Office.
What is Beachbody?
Beachbody began in 1998 with the mission to help people live healthy lives, and to offer a comprehensive approach that combines fitness and nutrition. They are the creators and marketers of some of the most popular fitness programs in the county, including Insanity, P90X, Body Beast, Hip Hop Abs, and more.
All of their programs contain challenging workouts, targeted routines, nutritional information, and easy-to-follow guidelines. You have most likely seen a few of their advertisements and infomercials – you can’t miss them. They are everywhere!
In the Beachbody universe their independent distributors are called coaches. Whether this is a true coach in the usual sense of the word is probably debatable. But, these coaches do help people achieve fitness goals through their proven at-home workout programs, meal plans, and nutritional advice.
What Was the Beachbody Coach Training Academy?
Since it is difficult to tell if it has been retired or exactly what reorganized means, I tried to find more information, but not much was found. Is there an academy or not? Well, they still seem to have online workshops, but when I used their system to search for workshops in my area, not much was found – and I live in a hotbed of fitness activity!
I have never used their products, though they do seem to be genuine workout programs with solid information – no 3-minute abs type of hype. But, I was not impressed with their website at all. If they have a Beachbody Coach Training Academy, I didn’t find much about it, and they don’t seem to be going out of their way to promote it.
If I was truly interested in becoming an instructor or coach, I would do a more comprehensive search for an academy, and would send off an email using their contact information. So, if you are interested in aligning your fitness coaching with Beachbody and their various workout programs, take a look at their website and what they have to offer. Then send off a question and see if you get any response.
Their programs look good, and appear to offer real workouts and fitness activities. However, I wasn’t very successful in finding a Beachbody Coach Training Academy. Hopefully, this will get you started and you’ll find out more information than I did!
