Should I Buy Through Amazon or a Beachbody Coach?

Difference between Amazon or Beachbody


Should I buy through AMAZON OR A BEACHBODY COACH?

Well, it depends.  Lol, I know what you're thinking.  Great, that's not an answer.  Well, let me explain.  Let's take a specific program like the 21 Day Fix and compare purchasing it through Amazon versus a Beachbody Coach:

AMAZON

Autumn Calabrese's 21 Day Fix - Essential Package

Purchased with Amazon Prime
Price:  $72.80
Tax:  $5.82
Shipping:  FREE
Total Price:  $78.62
Shipping Time:  2 Days
Cost of Amazon Prime:  $99 annually

If You Don't Have Amazon Prime:
Option #1 without Prime
Price:  $72.80
Shipping:  $7.50
Tax:  $6.42
Total Price:  $86.72
Shipping Time:  3-5 Business Days

Option #2 without Prime
Price:  $72.80
Shipping:  FREE
Tax:  $5.82
Total Price:  $78.62
Shipping Time:  5-8 Business Days

What's in the Package:  6 workouts plus 1 bonus workout (Dirty 30) on 2 DVDs, 7 color-coded portion-control containers plus Shakeology shaker cup, 21 Day Fix Start Here, 21 Day Fix Eating Plan, and 3 Day Quick Fix.

PROS:  Amazon is easy, well-known, and has fairly reputable customer service.  Plus, the shipping is reliable and quick.

CONS:  Downside is you do not get the support of a Beachbody Coach or access to the Team Beachbody website.  If your disc is defective or gets chewed up by your dog, it's harder to return/replace.  You do not get the Plyo Fix bonus workout.  Some reviews on Amazon mention not everything pictured being in the package and some of the DVDs not working.  Plus, if later Beachbody offers to give you access to On Demand (online streaming) for all Beachbody programs that you own, purchasing it through Amazon may not count.

BEACHBODY COACH

OPTION#1 - www.BEACHBODY.com

Autumn Calabrese's 21 Day Fix - Essential Package
Price:  $19.95 in 3 installments over 60 Days + Applicable Tax
Shipping:  $12.95
Total Price:  $77.44
Shipping Time:  3-5 Business Days
What's in the Package:  6 workouts plus 1 bonus workout (Dirty 30) on 2 DVDs, 7 color-coded portion-control containers plus Shakeology shaker cup, 21 Day Fix Start Here, 21 Day Fix Eating Plan, and 3 Day Quick Fix. (Same as Amazon)

PROS:  This is the option if you DO NOT want a Coach.  Probably the ONLY DIFFERENCE by purchasing directly from Beachbody as opposed to a Beachbody Coach is that you can choose to PAY in 3 INSTALLMENTS over 60 DAYS.  The benefits of both Beachbody and Team Beachbody do include a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee and direct support if your DVDs are defective.

CONS:  You do not get a Coach, and you do not get access to Team Beachbody.  So you do not have access to the 24/7 online support, nor do you get to access Beachbody on Demand to live stream hundreds of Beachbody workouts.  You also do not receive the exclusive Plyo Fix Workout DVD.

OPTION #2 - www.TEAMBEACHBODY.com
This will allow you to purchase through a Coach or if you do not have a Coach, get assigned one.

Autumn Calabrese's 21 Day Fix - Essential Package
Price:  $59.85 + Tax
Shipping:  $6.95
Total Price:  $71.44
Shipping Time:  5-7 Business Days
What's in the Package:  Everything Amazon gives you PLUS Exclusive Plyo Fix Workout DVD (a $19.95 value).

PROS:  On the BRIGHT SIDE, you get the exclusive workout AND your own BEACHBODY COACH to help you.  You also have access to 24/7 online support which includes extra support and motivation from weight-loss experts and other 21 Day Fix customers, as well as direct support if your DVDs are defective.  ADDITIONALLY, you get a 30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you don't get the results you want.

CONS:  Cons include slower shipping time BUT STILL CHEAPER than Amazon with or without Prime.

This is probably the most POPULAR CHOICE.  If you'd like to order this one, CLICK HERE.

OPTION #3 - THROUGH A BEACHBODY COACH

The 21 Day FIX CHALLENGE PACK
(BEST VALUE)
Price:  $160.00 + Tax (30 Day Supply of Shakeology Included - $129.95 value) - 21 Day Fix ends up costing $30.05 OR if you catch it on sale for $140, then 21 Day Fix only costs $10.05!!!
Shipping:  $2.00
Total Price:  $174.40
Shipping Time:  5-7 Business Days
What's in the Package:  You get EVERYTHING Amazon gives you as well as the Exclusive Plyo Fix Workout DVD (a $19.95 value).  IN ADDITION, you get a FREE 30-DAY VIP membership to Team Beachbody Club, which now has BEACHBODY ON DEMAND (think Netflix for workouts), where you can instantly stream 21 Day Fix and HUNDREDS of proven Beachbody workouts on your phone, tablet, or laptop.

You ALSO RECEIVE a 30-DAY SUPPLY OF SHAKEOLOGY (the BEST superfood shakes out there.  NO artificial sweeteners, NO artificial flavors, NO soy.  It includes Protein, Vitamins, Probiotics, and Superfoods like Kale, Spinach, Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds, Goji berry, Amaranth, Bilberry, Quinoa, Grape Seed, Ginkgo, Yacon Root, and many more).

PROS:  Great Value!  You save a ton of money.  Shakeology alone is normally $129.95 + Tax + Shipping.  PLUS, you get the exclusive Plyo Fix workout, the 24/7 online support, the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee, the SHAKEOLOGY, Beachbody on Demand, and a COACH!!!  And that Coach is probably running a Challenge group which will provide you online accountability, motivation, and personal support.  Many people who buy a program rarely finish it, but with the support of a Coach, many Challengers are motivated enough to see the program through to completion and therein get RESULTS!

This link will take you to EXCLUSIVE BUNDLE PACKS, AVAILABLE ONLY through a Coach.
If you already have a Coach, please contact them, otherwise this option will make me your Coach :)

CONS:  Cons include the SLOW shipping time listed above, as well as the fact that you are auto-enrolled into the Shakeology Home Direct and On Demand subscriptions.  So if you do not wish to get charged the next month, you will need to email or call Team Beachbody Support which can be a pain.


At the end of the day, purchasing it through Team Beachbody or a Coach will give you a lot more bang for your buck.  Shipping is probably the biggest difference, but if you can wait, I would recommend purchasing it directly over purchasing it through Amazon.  In full-disclosure, I am a Beachbody Coach but I was genuinely curious about the difference between the two and did my research as objectively as I could.

If you are interested in purchasing through Team Beachbody and do not have a coach, please feel free to reach out.  I would love to learn more about your health and fitness goals.  If you would like to participate in one of my online Challenge and Support Groups, please APPLY HERE.

  1. When you go to the grocery store, you may be tempted to buy the first thing you see that fits your needs. However, there are many different brands to
    choose from and many different tricks that grocery stores use to reel you in. So, it's better to be prepared for what you'll face and deal with it
    accordingly.

  3. I've been talking to a couple of coaches on doing this for a while now but I DON'T like being put on ANYTHING that auto ships or auto charges so that's a HUGE NO NO for me. As for the rest I can almost say I am better off ordering through Amazon because I can get most of what I need without all the headaches ( also I no longer have any pets so no problem with that).
