Beachbody Coach Chris Balmert’s Question and Answer

Great news!  Team Motiv8 Coaches are absolutely rockin’ it!  I woke up this morning to find that I am officially a Four-Star Diamond Beachbody Coach.  On top of achieving Four-Star Diamond status, I am also in Six-Star Diamond Qualification status!  What does that mean?  That means I am soon to be a Six-Star Diamond Ranked Coach!  I’m very thankful to my team and this opportunity!  This has been one crazy, but amazing ride that has completely changed my life!

I wanted to compile a short Q&A article that helps answer some common questions about my Beachbody Coach journey and the Coaching Opportunity itself.  Below is a list of common questions I receive from people daily who show interest in becoming a Beachbody Coach themselves.  Hopefully, with the answers I provide, it helps clear up any doubt you may have about this incredible opportunity. 

Question:  Do you Coach Full-Time?
Answer:  No, I don’t.  I consider myself a Part-Time Beachbody Coach.  My Full-Time job consists of working in a professional sporting arena.  That position is a very strenuous and demanding position that forces me to put in long hours when we are in season.  On an average week, I could work seven days straight and put in close to 80-90 hours.  Even with that demanding Full-Time schedule, I still have plenty of time being a coach and have developed my Part-Time coaching business into a Full-Time salary.  Without this opportunity, my wife and I wouldn’t have been able to cover all the cost of our wedding up-front, as well as, purchase our new dream home that we are currently in the process of moving into as I type this. For more information on my time management between Beachbody Coaching and my Full-Time job, check out my blog post by clicking here.

Question:  Do you invest a ton of time in this daily?
Answer:  Well, the more time you devote to your coaching, the more you will learn and build.  When I first started off, I invested about an hour a day, checking in once in a while during the day.  As I progressed, I started to invest a little more time when I could.  Notice how I just said, “…when I could.”?  That’s the amazing part about this opportunity.  You are YOUR boss.  If you have plans with the family, or have a Full-Time job, or just dont feel well, you are able to take time away from your coaching.  Do I recommend unplugging completely, no, but you are free to put in as much or as little effort during the day.  So, back to the original question, I invest about an hour in the morning before work and anywhere from an hour to three at night while I’m relaxing.  As long as you know how to be productive and manage your time, you will have no problem being a successful coach while investing into the opportunity Part-Time.

Question:  Have you been a Coach for a long time?
Answer:  No, not really.  It’s going on two years since I became a Beachbody Coach.  To be honest, I would say I have been taking my Coaching business seriously for about ten months.  When I first started off, I was just learning the ropes and coaching at my leisure.  Then, once I realized how fun this opportunity is and what it can lead to for my future and my family’s future, I began to learn more and more about building this into a successful business.  So, in about ten months, I have been able to advance to Six-Star Diamond Rank and build another Full-Time salary for our household.

Question:  Are you a fitness guru?
Answer:  No way, not at all.  I won’t lie, I have definitely learned a lot along the way, however, when I started Coaching, I knew nothing.  The only things I knew were things I was experiencing during my own personal journey as an active P90X’er.  I simply shared my experiences and my results with others and shared tips and advice to help them achieve the same results.  I don’t consider myself a fitness genius, just a common sense motivator.  Which anyone can classify themselves as.  If you like to talk to people and make friends, then this opportunity will work for you!

Question:  How long did it take you to be successful with Coaching?
Answer:  I started coaching when Beachbody was limited on their resources.  When I started, there was no Coach Training Academy, or support groups on Facebook or team training websites available to study from, so it took time and patience for me.  I began earning a Part-Time salary about nine months into coaching.  I know a lot of you are saying, “WHAT?!  NINE MONTHS?!  THAT’S HORRIBLE!”, however, like I said above, I coached at my leisure and didn’t have my training or guidance to start successfully.  Now, with Beachbody’s resources to train new coaches, all the Facebook support pages and our own personal team training websites, I witness new coaches start earning the day they become a coach!  It all depends on your work ethic and the amount of effort you wish to invest to be successful.  Do your goals match the amount of effort you wish to invest?  To hear my National Coach Call about my journey, click here.

Question:  Did you have extreme results when you started coaching?
Answer:  I had decent results, but no where near where I wanted to be.  It truly doesn’t matter if you have crazy-insane results or if you are the average Joe.  What matters is what you carry inside of you.  Your passion, your belief and your confidence with the products you represent and the opportunity you are a part of.  That is what people will relate to.  If you love doing what you do as a coach, then you will inspire anyone.  Passion wins over results ANY DAY!

Question:  What’s your best advice to a new coach?
Answer:  Believe.  Success is here for all of us, if you believe enough in yourself and the opportunity.  Wake up everyday wanting to help people.  Wake up everyday wanting to be a friend to someone new.  Wake up everyday proud of what you do.  When you begin focusing on the true meaning of Beachbody Coaching and less on the numbers and the money, you will see your business grow.  Those who focus on the numbers and focus on instant gratification will find that this opportunity will be short lived and disappointing.  Trust me, focus on those you are here to help and you will see your business grow.

Question:  How do I know if I am ready to be a Beachbody Coach?
Answer:  Do you love the workout you are doing?  Do you often find yourself talking about it to others?  Do you find yourself posting about it on your social media sites?  If someone were to ask you what you like about your workout, would you be able to supply them with reasons why you like it?  If you’re answering “YES!” to these questions, then you are ALREADY coaching, but just don’t realize it!  As a Beachbody Coach, that’s all I do each and everyday.  I talk to people.  I help people.  I have fun.  I workout.  I help others workout!  I do nothing more that what you are doing already!  If you’re ready to become a Beachbody Coach on our team, then message me at and let’s get you going!  Feel free to visit out team’s site at for more information about us, my journey and this wonderful opportunity.

Question:  What if I become a Beachbody Coach and find out its not right for me?
Answer:  You will never know until you give this opportunity a try!  But, I am happy to let you know that you are able to try the coaching opportunity out, risk free.  Since Beachbody is such a loyal company that is built on such strong morals, they offer the same 30-Day Guarantee with the coaching opportunity as they do withh all of their other products!  Lets face it.  Beachbody nor I want you to do something you aren’t 100% happy doing.  So with this being said, its well-worth your time to try it out.  You never know where this opportunity will lead you!  When I first started off as a coach, I had NO IDEA that I would be where I am today with it.  Don’t go another day asking, “What if?…” when you don’t have to!  If you’re ready to learn more about getting started as a Beachbody Coach on our team, contact me now.
