Beachbody History - Founding Date - Beaching Coaching Started in 2007

Beachbody History

May 16, 2013

The main reason I decided to put my time and money into this company is because of its' history. With so many opportunities out there I think the first thing you should always research is the companies history.

Quick About Me

  • For myself I knew Beachbody was a good company because I had purchased Power 90 back in 2001 on VHS “yes VHS!!” I did the workout at age 22 right out of college and I got back into shape fast!! It was a great product. Fast forward to about 2006 I wanted to give it a shot again, but I did not have a VCR! So I bought Power 90 again but this time on DVD. Little did I know that Beachbody was starting to form its “Coaching Business“. Sometimes I wish I did know early on, but that was not the course for my life at the time. Fast forward to now and I've done P90X, Insanity, Asylum, Les Mills Combat, Shakeology, etc… I have taken the opportunity to become a coach. The fact the company has been in business since 1998 and the coaching opportunity has been around since 2007 solidified the deal for me.
