Emeralds, rubies, diamonds and star diamonds. No, I’m not describing the product list for the next Christie’s auction in Manhatten. I’m describing the various coach levels for the Beachbody coaching program!
The Beachbody coaching program has gone from strength to strength over the years and there is little wonder why, as it uses satisfied customers to further market and promote Beachbody services and products. These “coaches” act as salespeople and ambassadors for Beachbody and have the opportunity to share in Beachbody’s success with generous commissions and virtually unlimited earning potential. Honestly it is a fantastic job that I would not change for the world. I am extremely happy being a full-time entrepreneur.
I’ve been in the game a long time and have read through the Team Beachbody Coach Policies and Procedures more times than I can remember. Today I’ll introduce you to how Beachbody Coach levels work and what a few of the key terms mean. By the end of this article, you’ll know a lot more about the coaching program and you’ll feel much more confident navigating the Beachbody universe.
FYI: at first glance, the commission program and Beachbody coach levels might seem confusing and a little daunting, but I urge you to stick with it. Like anything in life, once you take the time to get across it, it will become second nature to you. Pretty soon, when somebody tells you that they are pleased to see that a particular “CBC really nailed the downline TV for her weak leg in her last cycle”, you’ll nod in agreement and know exactly what they mean!

Beachbody Coach Levels — Terms You Should Know
The Beachbody coaching program uses a TON of acronyms and unique terms and a full list of these can be found in the glossary section of the Team Beachbody Coach Policies and Procedures (from page 39 onwards). Below are definitions of the most important terms for this article:
COACH BUSINESS CENTER (CBC) – A fancy name for being a Beachbody coach.
LEG – As a Beachbody coach your team is divided into two administrative branches that are called the “left leg” and a “right leg” (kinda neat in my opinion, seeing as we’re in the fitness industry!).
PERSONALLY SPONSORED (PS) – Beachbody coaches who are directly sponsored (or referred to the coaching program) by you.
PERSONAL VOLUME (PV) – PV is generated by you through your personal purchases of Beachbody products or through the orders of your personal retail customers. Each of the Beachbody coach levels require a minimum PV.
TEAM VOLUME (TV) – TV is a term used for the Beachbody products and memberships that are sold to people by members of your team or that they themselves personally purchase — the people in your team that you recruited are referred to as being “downline” of you.
VOLUME POINT – A volume point is a unit of measurement used by Beachbody that is equivalent to around $1.10 (although this may vary slightly between different products and services). PV and TV are measured with these points.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Overview
The Beachbody coaching program has 19 official ranks and Beachbody Coach levels are categorized as follows:
- Inactive coach
- Active coach
- Active emerald coach
- Active ruby
- Active diamond
After the initial diamond rank, there are a total of 15-star diamond ranks with each rank having an additional star all the way up to the 15-star diamond rank. Each rank entitles you to earn a greater amount each week and raises your yearly earnings cap.
As you can see below, each rank has specific volume and recruitment requirements which I will discuss in this article.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Becoming a Coach
First things first, before we discuss Beachbody Coach levels and the fabulous commissions you can earn, these are a few requirements to becoming a Beachbody coach:
- You must be at least 18 years of age.
- You must be a resident of the United States, a US territory, Canada or the UK. If your country is not on this list, check the Beachbody coaching website frequently, as the company is expanding around the world.
- You will need to provide relevant identification such as a social security number and applicable tax identification for the country you reside in.
- You must buy a coach business starter kit ($39.95) and pay a monthly membership fee ($15.95). You can sign up here. Check out my full article on how much it costs.
- You need to be sponsored by an existing coach. If you would like to work with me personally, please use my coach ID (1339221) or simply use the link above which should automatically make me your coach (Tyler Read).
Beachbody Coach Levels — Inactive and Active Coaches
The program differentiates between “active” and “inactive” coaches and if you want to qualify for level advancement or commissions and bonuses, you need to be an active coach. An active coach is somebody who has sold or purchased 50 PV over the previous five weeks, while an “inactive coach” is somebody who has not sold or purchased 50 PV accross the previous five weeks. A coach who is active but has not yet met the Emerald PV requirement is referred to simply as an “active coach”. A lot of coaches simply sign up just for the discount on shakeology and don’t really plan on making a business out of it.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Emerald Level
To be ranked as an “emerald level” coach, you must meet the personal volume requirement of 50 PV and have one personally sponsored active coach on each of your left and right “legs”. As an Emerald coach, you can earn a maximum team cycle bonus of $250 per week with an annual team cycle bonus cap $13,00 per year — for more information on how income and bonuses operate, check out this article.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Ruby Level
To become a “ruby level” coach you will need to generate a minimum of 75 PV and have a total of four downline coaches in your business, including two emerald coaches (one on each leg) and two additional active coaches (one on each leg). As a ruby coach, you can earn a maximum team cycle bonus of $1000 per week, with an annual cap of $52,000 per year.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Diamond Level
Becoming a “diamond level” coach is where things start to get really interesting and your earning potential skyrockets! To become a diamond coach you will need to generate 100 PV and have eight downline coaches in your business, including two emerald coaches (one on each leg) and six additional active coaches (three on each leg). As a diamond-level coach, you can earn a maximum team cycle bonus of $2000 per week with a cycle bonus cap of $104,000 per year.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Star Diamond Levels
As a star-diamond coach you’re well and truly in the big league. There are a total of 15 Star diamond ranks, each with increasingly higher PV and downline recruitment requirements, but also with much higher weekly and annual earning potential. Star diamond coaches also have a “diamond coach minimum quota” for each leg. To fully achieve a particular star diamond level, you must achieve the level requirements and maintain these for 6 consecutive weeks. As a 2-star diamond coach or above, you are also eligible for a quarterly “leadership bonus”, which entitles you to a percentage of an exclusive Beachbody bonus pool.
To be a 1-star diamond coach you will need to generate a minimum PV of 200 and have at least 10 downline coaches including one personally sponsored diamond coach on a leg and nine other active coaches across both legs.
Requirements for additional star diamond levels include the requirement for an ever increasing number of diamond coaches on each leg as well as a greater number of personally sponsored active coaches. So for example, as a 6-star diamond coach, you would need a total of 6 personally sponsored diamond coaches downline of you (with at least two diamond coaches on each leg) and a total of 21 personally sponsored active coaches. If you are a 10-star diamond coach, you would need to have a total of 10 personally sponsored diamond coaches downline of you (with at least 5 diamond coaches on each leg) and a total of 22 personally sponsored active coaches beneath you.
This structure continues in a generally linear fashion all the way up to the 15-star diamond coach, who would need to have a total of 15 personally sponsored diamond coaches downline of them (with at least 5 diamond coaches on each leg) and a total of 30 personally sponsored active coaches. A a 15-star diamond coach you could earn up to $12,000 per week or $624,000 per year.
Beachbody Coach Levels — Conclusion
The earning potential for Beachbody coaches is huge and depends on a coach’s ranking. What’s more, each individual coach can open up to 25 CBCs, and each of these each will have their own independent earning thresholds and caps, so the earning potential is practically limitless.
