How to become a successful Beachbody Coach Series — Here is a list of the best apps for a successful Beachbody coach. These are apps that I use all of the time and that have really helped me to become a more successful Beachbody Coach.
This app is literally my ALL TIME FAVORITE photo editing app of all time. We all know that as Beachbody Coaches we are constantly sharing our lives through photos and videos on social media. I think it’s so important that we make those photos look very branded. By that I mean that when someone sees a photo with a cute fitness quote you want to make sure that all of your content is so well branded that they can immediately recognize your work.
Over is an excellent app for that because you can download custom fonts straight to the app and it has just an incredible number of capabilities.
If you’re looking to brand yourself as a Beachbody Coach (and a successful one at that) you want to find 2-3 fonts that really speak to you. I suggest one scripty, hand-written style font and then two block letter style fonts. I suggest looking at a website called dafont.com.
You can simply go to dafont.com on your phone’s browser. Once you find a font that you totally love click the download button. Then your phone will ask which app you want to download your new font to. Simply click on the Over app and BOOM! Over will now show your new font right there under its various fonts.
I literally could go on and on about how amazing Over is and all the possibilities it creates for you in branding your Beachbody business but I think I’ll have to save that for a later time.
I think as a successful Beachbody Coach its very important to understand that video is king! Video is how your followers and customers will gain trust in you! And trust me when I say that people aren’t buying Beachbody, they are buying you! So it’s extremely important to build that trust in your following.
The fastest and most effective way to do this is through video my friend. I know that can sound scary AF to so many of us who are just starting out as coaches. Don’t worry, I was totally freaked out on video when I first started as well.
Start small with it. Only post videos in your private free groups or challenge groups if need be. Then slowly, when you gain more confidence in front of the camera, you can move on to full on video production.
I started my YouTube channel even before I was a coach. The easiest and fasted video editing software I’ve found for your iPhone is iMovie. It has all kinds of capabilities and is very simple and easy to use. It does take a bit of getting used to however you’re a smart cookie — I know you can do it!
Now if you’re an Android user…. well I’m just sorry you’re an Android user. Once you’ve had Mac you never go back. Haha I kid, I kid…. sort of. But seriously if you’re an Android user I’m not sure what your best option for video editing software for your phone is. Sorry friend.
If you aren’t riding the Gmail train and you run a business then you better hop on! Google Suite offers all kinds of amazing “apps” or programs that help you to be a more organized and productive entrepreneur. We all know, as Beachbody Coaches, there are SO many moving parts to our business! It’s vital to your success as a Beachbody coach that you stay organized!
Each of the apps or programs that are a part of Google Suite are all connected via your Gmail account. Thus, first things first, if you don’t already have a Gmail account you need to create one sister!
Google Drive — I keep all of my challenge group templates, email templates, messaging scripts, nutrition plans, meal plans, coaching documents, etc. Saved on my Google Drive account. I even have my google drive folders divided up by category — Business Procedures, Challenge Groups, Challenger Results, Coaching Opportunity, Email Templates, Onboarding, Presentations (For team calls), Scripts, Sneak Peek Group, Training, Videos.
Of course you can divide up your categories however you’d like but can you see how much more organized this will help you stay in your business. Not only will you be more organized but it also helps you to be a better leader for your team. Google Drive makes it easy to send your downline coaches the documents they need to succeed. Remember, the speed of the leader is the speed of the pack.
Google Docs — I love Google Docs as a Beachbody Coach because, well number one, I’m a Mac user and don’t have Microsoft Word on my computer. Google Docs is almost exactly like Microsoft Word. So I use Google Dogs to help me to create Challenge Group Templates for myself and my team. I use it to make scripts to help me better explain how I converse with my customers. Google Docs is also great for creating email scripts to welcome your new challengers or welcoming new coaches.
Google Sheets — Basically is Microsoft Excel only you don’t have to pay for it. #heckyeah! I have a large google sheet where I track my weekly income from each of my business centers. You could also use google sheets to help you track your invites to challenge groups, invites to the coaching opportunity or your challenger participation.
While this isn’t technically an actual app, it is so incredibly convenient to have your mobile enroller right there as a shortcut on your phone.
If you’re not sure what the Mobile Enroller is, it allows you to insert your customers name, email, Shakeology flavor and the challenge pack of their choice into the “app”. Then the app will send your customer an email with their challenge pack and Shakeology flavor all ready to go for them. This makes it SO much easier for both them and for you. I use this almost every time I have a customer purchasing a challenge pack.
What I love most about the Mobile Enroller is that it makes it easier for your new coaches to sign up. There’s an option to either enroll a new customer or a new coach. This way you can help your new coach to figure out the challenge pack and Shakeology flavor that’s right for them. Plus it makes the coach enrollment process that much easier!
When you become a more successful Beachbody coach you’ll have a lot of people coming to you asking about which program is right for them or how they can join your team. The Mobile Enroller app will make your life that much easier.
You’ll need a button that says “That was easy.”
To get the Mobile Enroller just to go coachmobile.teambeachbody.com. There you’ll find instructions for how to add the “app” to your home screen so that it acts like an app on your phone.
We all know that as soon as you become a Beachbody coach, there goes ALLLL the memory on your phone because we have to snap a pic of every meal, every sweaty selfie, every photo opportunity, plus all the videos we make for our followers, challengers and team. Shit gets cray is all I can say.
Never fear my friend! Dropbox is here to save the day!
The Dropbox app allows you to upload all of your photos and videos to the cloud for storage. I use the paid Pro version to get 1TB (thats a terabyte, aka a s**t ton of storage homegirl) for $8.25 a month. You can do a free trial by clicking here.
Dropbox has been a LIFESAVER for me to be able to clear up space on my phone. What I usually do it simply leave the Dropbox app open on my phone over night. You’ll want to change the settings on your phone so that your screen doesn’t sleep. That way, when I wake up in the morning I have all of my photos and videos available on the cloud. I can simply delete all of my photos and videos without worrying they will be lost forever.
To be a successful Beachbody coach you need to be ready to take a photo or video anytime, anywhere. Dropbox will help to ensure that you will always be prepared without having to worry about phone storage.
One of the first questions I always get asked by new coaches is “How do I send my own Beachbody link to someone?” This right here is the app I always recommend.
I love that BB Links is so easy to use to send your own custom Beachbody links to potential customers. Also, I love the fact that you can switch between multiple business centers. When you become a more successful Beachbody coach you’ll have several business centers to keep track of. This app will help you stay organized.
It’s a must have app for any successful Beachbody coach.
As a successful Beachbody coach you know that your number one priority is to get at least 10 minutes of personal development done each day. It can sometimes be hard for us busy ladies to get those 10 minutes of solitude in. That’s where Audible comes in!
You can get two FREE audiobook downloads here with a 30 day trial. After that its just $15 a month for your membership which will get you 1 credit each month. One book equals one credit. Also being a member you not only get 30% off on all other audiobooks but you also get the opportunity to buy audiobooks on sale. Audible will often have AMAZING deals on books that are perfect for Beachbody coaches for as little as $3.

Audio books are a #GameChanger when it comes to getting in that personal development time. It makes it so that you can get in your PD even when you are busy and on the go! I love to listen to my Audible audio books when I vacuum the floors, do the dishes, drive to run errands, on road trips or even when I’m getting ready in the morning.
Audible makes audiobooks so much more affordable and easy to access anytime, anywhere. I love that I can listen to my audio books at 1.25 x, 1.5 x, 2 x and 3 x speed! Because ain’t nobody got time to sit down and listen to an entire 8 hour long audio book! Listening at those faster speeds helps you to digest more books faster and still retain the information.
Speaking of personal development–have you come across my friend Tony Robbins yet? If you have high-five to you sister! If you haven’t you MUST get to know him!
He’s practically the Godfather of all personal development gurus today. He’s literally the BEST of the BEST in the self-help arena.
His app Breakthrough will give you an introduction to his incredible techniques to help you optimize your life, business, finances, health, relationships, etc.
I love to listen to the different programs on this app when I want to do some PD. It’s intense and it will break you down to the root of your mental blocks. Then build you up to feel completely unstoppable!! Feeling unstoppable is part of becoming a successful Beachbody coach!
I know you’ll love it!
