Frequently Asked Questions about Beachbody Coaching for 501(c)(3):
How does the nonprofit organization make money? There are three ways.
- First, the organization can purchase products at wholesale and then turn around and sell them at retail (i.e., purchase 50 videos and sell them at a Spring Carnival—making $8.00 per video).
- Secondly, the organization can send customers directly to their Team Beachbody Web site to order products. This method almost guarantees active status for the organization, should they desire it.
- Thirdly, the organization (or their sponsor) can enroll other Coaches and build a Team from which they may earn team cycle bonus payments.
What is the message from the organization to their members?
This can be communicated as the healthy alternative fundraiser where members can get healthy and fit—a win-win for everyone.
Who is the administrator for the organization, and what is their role?
An administrator is necessary to manage the nonprofit Coach Business Center. This administrator will need to answer or redirect customer questions.

The administrator must be 18 years of age or older.

It is not necessary to maintain monthly active status, unless the organization chooses to participate in the team cycle bonus.
