Last time we chatted about the different work out forms out there and the pros and cons of going down the different particular routes. This time we are breaking down nutrition-specifically protein supplements. Let’s breakdown the two forms that are most popular right now Beachbody and IdealFit. We are mostly going to hit on Beachbody because you will be hearing A LOT about IdealFit. But these were my two final options that I couldn't decide between for a period of time. Once I explain why I didn't choose BB, explaining why I chose IdealFIT will be a much easier task! :)
Basically when you join Beachbody you are really paying for the Shakeology. You can get the workout programs for pretty decent prices. But your meal replacement shake is what you are paying for when you join a challenge group. This can be frustrating because it is a lot of money for one month supply of drink mix.
Let’s get the numbers out there because I know that’s pretty important! Shakeology is $120/ month or about $4 per day (Think of that as a meal since that is what it is!) You can get it at a discount if you decide to be a coach. But it’s still a whopping $90! Compared to other products such as Ideal Shape or 18Shake which is only $50 a month for a meal replacement, Shakeology seems like a punch to your wallet. So why do people buy it?
One way customers are saving and adding value with Shakeology is the ability to select “Home Direct” during the purchasing process. Home Direct is a monthly auto shipping service set up to ensure that Shakeology lovers never run out of the product. It’s a fantastic deal because it provides “Super Discount” shipping at a price of $2 per unit. This empowers customers to save more than $12 per month in shipping fees. Shakeology also provides Home Direct customers with two free workouts as an added bonus for signing up for the program. Do you know what this means? You are getting extra workouts for the money you spending helping ease that hit to your bank account. Shakeology also comes with a money back guarantee. Customers can try the product for 30 days and if they are unsatisfied with the results, they do not have to pay anything but the shipping and handling costs. That’s a great value, considering that the company will even process refunds for those who consumed the entire bag of Shakeology.
So basically, when you first sign on, everything seems super great because you are getting heaps of deals! But as time goes on, the automatic payments start to really add up and tear apart your wallet. The price of the Shake is really what has been keeping me hesitant with BB and becoming a BB Coach. The income does sound tempting, but I just can't convince myself that it's okay to pay that price a month for 1 shake a day! But, let's keep talking...I didn't let that be my only hindering point! :)
What is Shakeology doing for you exactly?
It seems people buy Shakeology because they love the taste and the see the results! Here’s what I have learned in researching and testing Shakeology.
I would love to discuss WHY SHAKES further! But this might take awhile...so keep following me and in another post I`ll discuss this topic more! :)
So...you still haven't told me WHY IDEALFIT!
