Every piece of information seems to show it is an illegal pyramid scheme according to the FTC’s guidelines.
A former Beachbody Coach also gives good details into the pyramid scheme nature of the company.
“When I arrived, I found out that instead of a social get together, this was a home party and that my new ‘friend’ was an ‘independent consultant’ for some multi-level marketing scam called ‘Scentsy.’ Instead of a real party, I had to listen to a presentation about these stupid, overpriced warmers that melt scented wax with a light bulb.
Yet still they allowed themselves to be manipulated into buying these ridiculously overpriced air freshners just to be polite. “I have some advice to people who do these home parties like Scentsy and invite people under false pretenses: You are scum. Go buy yourself a Glade Air Freshner and buy some new shoes with all the money you saved!Kellie Gimenez is doing it with an MLM called Beachbody.You may know of Beachbody’s workouts: P90X and Insanity are two of the most popular ones.There’s no reason to be a Coach to get a discount as you can get the Shakeology discount price on Ebay without paying coaching fees.” As I said in the introduction, I don’t mind the workouts. Before I cover it allow me to explain why pricing matters in an MLM.This is a good question and few people seem to grasp it initially.
