In Coaching speak, you'll often hear about a monthly challenge group that I'm leading and the various options of challenge packs (or completion packs) that you can purchase to get started on your fitness journey. But what is the difference between a challenge pack and a challenge group? Great question! Keep reading and I'll simplify everything you need to know to make an informed choice on your next fitness challenge!
What is a Challenge Pack?
Think of a Challenge Pack as your road map to success on your fitness journey. It provides a total solution by packaging together, or bundling, all of the tools you need to be successful. This typically includes your selected exercise program, your choice of nutritional supplements, and the support of a Beachbody Coach.
There are 2 variations of these bundled packages and the only difference is whether you are a new customer or an existing customer with a current subscription of Beachbody on Demand (the app where all workouts are streamed.) Challenge Packs are for NEW customers and includes 12 months access to Beachbody on Demand along with your selected exercise program. A Completion Pack is for existing customers who want to add an exclusive new program to their existing Beachbody on Demand library. Simple right?!
Purchasing a Challenge Pack is not only convenient, but it can save you around 25% plus discounted shipping on your purchase.
What's included in a Challenge Pack?
There are 3 main components that are critical to success in any fitness journey -- EXERCISE + NUTRITION + SUPPORT = SUCCESS. This is the foundation of the Beachbody system and the proven formula to success in reaching your goals. With that in mind, your Challenge Pack is comprised of the following items:
- Your choice of exercise program.
Beachbody has hundreds of workouts available to stream from the convenience of your home or anywhere you have a WiFi connection. No matter your level of fitness or exercise preferences, there is a program for you!
All workouts are streamed from the Beachbody on Demand app. It can be downloaded directly to your phone, laptop, tablet, or SmartTV. Think of Beachbody on Demand like the Netflix of workout programs. You can search by trainer, type of exercise, workout length, or fitness level to find the workout that fits your needs.
Most Challenge Packs come with 12 months access to Beachbody on Demand.
- Your choice of nutritional supplements.
Depending on which exercise program you select, you have the option to add Shakeology, the Performance Line (ENERGIZE + RECOVER), or a combination of products. You should select the nutritional supplements that align with your fitness goals.
If you find it challenging to meal prep or cook, then Shakeology is a great, nutrient-dense meal option!
Need help with motivation in the morning? Try ENERGIZE! Hate feeling sore muscles? RECOVER is for you!
You also have the option to bundle multiple products for even greater savings by selecting a DELUXE Challenge Pack.
**Coach Tip** I personally LOVE Shakeology and drink it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I rotate between the Chocolate and Vanilla Vegan formula, and add in Pumpkin Spice when its available in the Fall! And while I still love my cup of coffee, I drink ENERGIZE in the Fruit Punch flavor before EVERY workout. I don't leave home without it (Comes in handy individual packs too!) so I can always get my workout in, even on vacation!
- Your program-specific nutrition plan.
Every workout program requires different levels of intensity and energy to complete, therefore every program comes with a nutrition plan to help you set your calorie baseline for the program and provide recipes to help you stay on track. Pairing any exercise program with one of Beachbody's core nutritional programs, The Ultimate Portion Fix or 2B Mindset, is a great way to maximize your results.
Remember, you can't outwork a bad diet!
- Online support.
One of the main reasons so many people giveup on their fitness goals is because they lack support. When you become a part of the Beachbody community, you are connected to a Coach and thousands of other like-minded people who are working towards their own fitness goals. Your Coach is there to help you select the right exercise program for your goals, answer any questions you have along the way, and check-in regularly thru a private online group or app to see how you are doing.
- Lastly, you get a money-back guarantee.
There is one thing I'm certain of -- these programs WORK if YOU DO! But we get it, being healthy requires an investment of your time, money and energy. To remove any doubt you may have that these products work, there is a money-back guarantee. Try Shakeology, finish the bag, then decide you don't like it? No problem! Return the empty bag for a refund. Sound crazy? Its not! We're that confident in the level of healthy, nutritious good stuff in this shake, you'll start feeling and seeing the benefits in just 30 days or your money back.
What do Challenge Packs cost?
The cost of your Challenge Pack depends on the program, required equipment to complete that program, selected supplements, and whether you decide to enroll as a Coach and start your own Team Beachbody business (or just enjoy the 25% discount! Ask me about this!) Generally packs are priced from $140 to $400.
**Coach Tip** If you subscribe to my newsletter, be on the lookout for promo codes and special pricing incentives to get started on your fitness journey!
Do Challenge Packs require an auto-shipment?
In short, yes. Beachbody on Demand is included in your initial Challenge Pack purchase and will be auto-renewed after 12 months access. Your first month's supply of supplements will be sent to you after purchase and auto-ship monthly unless you postpone your future shipments or cancel. Most programs last longer that 30 days and you will deplete your initial order of supplements before the program ends. Beachbody has the auto-ship program to make it as easy as possible to stay consistent in your routine and stay on track with your program.
Postponing your next shipment, changing flavors or quantities, or canceling your auto-ship order can be done anytime by logging into your account at teambeachbody.com, by calling customer service at 1-800-470-7870 or emailing customer service at email@example.com.
I recommend continuing with your supplements through the duration of your program to get the full benefit of your efforts before deciding to discontinue use.
What happens after I purchase my Challenge Pack (or Completion Pack)?
Once you complete your purchase, you'll receive an email with instructions for setting up your Beachbody on Demand account. This is also the time when you'll receive an invitation from your Coach to join their private online accountability group, either hosted on Facebook or the My Challenge Tracker app. This is your Challenge Group (or Bootcamp)! It's comprised of other people committed to their fitness goals who are completing a Beachbody fitness program at the same time you are. This is a great way to connect with others who might be having similar challenges you are with snacking or meal prep, or share recipes, motivation, and successes! This community is for you to engage with as much or as little as you choose.
You do NOT need to participate in a Challenge Group when you purchase a Challenge Pack, but in most cases, you DO need to purchase a Challenge Pack in order to participate in a Challenge Group.
