Need a Job?

While things get harder for so many people, still Beachbody coaches are thriving.

Today's headlines are telling: Chrysler Cuts 25% of White Collar Jobs, Goldman Sachs cutting 10% of workforce, Yahoo firing 1,500 workers.

How deep will job cuts get? We hit 6% unemployment in September. In the downturn of 1973 we got up to 9%. Total employment in the U.S. is about 144 million people. That means if unemployment rise another 3%, another 4.3 million people could be out of work. Brutal.

With the financial meltdown and layoffs/unemployment, people are saving money, and they need to find ways to make money.

Beachbody and its coaches are in the perfect position to help people who are currently spending an average $741 per year on dues (before parking, gas, clothes, trainer, etc.) That $18B gym club business is antiquated. Everyday someone signs up to be a Beachbody coach, it's as if they created their own health club in their family room for less than $200. That's the future, and the future is here.

Between our infomercial sales, $90MM in advertising, and 13,000+ distributors, how many people can we get to replace their gym dues with a solution to get results like the NFL cheerleader (below) got with P90X? And how many more people who never set foot in a gym will get started with programs that make it easy, like Slim in 6, Yoga Booty Ballet, or or Ten Minute Trainer?

Get the word out. Every time Beachbody airs a commercial we generate thousands of customers. But hundreds of thousands more see the ads and become prospective customers. That's opportunity for income for you and everyone you know. You get the word out to people you know and people buy from you. It's a home based business where we do the advertising, you just make sure people know you're a distributor. Every 40 sales of P90X makes you over $1,000 in commissions, not including bonuses, and saves your customers hundreds of dollars a year in gym dues.

Sign up today, and use the tools in the coach-back-office to email everyone you know that if they want to lose weight, you can get them solutions like P90X for 10% less money if they join the club, and even less if they become a coach (25% off).

Beachbody saves people money, makes people money, and gets you better results for less money and in less time than the gym. No boss. No employees. Set your own hours. What are you waiting for?

Awesome!
Thanks Carl. Dave lost a good chunk of his FedEx retirement and yet we are not stressed because our residual income with Beachbody continues to grow.
Thanks for everything!

Great post Carl! This is the future! I can't believe what Team Beach Body has done for me, my family, and friends! I have lost 55 pounds, my wife 71 pounds, and my kids love to workout as well! We get a weekly check from your company for helping others with their nutrition and fitness goals. I ran a 5K yesterday in 18:47 at age 49 and have not run in 13 years! I couldn't even jog a lap just one year ago! All it takes is a small daily committment to your fitness and good clean nutritional foods. Thanks Carl! Thanks Team Beach Body!
