A friend of mine did a Beachbody program which was the P90X. He talked to me about the different Beachbody programs and got me involved in doing some of it. I was super busy and the program that I did was the P90X3. It was only 30 minutes which really stuck out to me because my thought was, “Well, if I can’t take 30 minutes to take care of myself, then what in the world am I going to do?” The Beachbody on Demand was the one that I chose to do for the program that I did. I also did the Shakeology supplements for my morning breakfast, and it is something that I use almost daily now.
Purchasing from Beachbody was a good experience. Any time that I had any questions or concerns, they were always willing to help. It was an overall amazing experience with Beachbody. I'm more healthy now than I've ever been in my life even when I was in high school. I am very excited and very happy with the program, and definitely would recommend it to anybody. It's motivating and it works.
We are excited to hear you have been enjoying your fitness journey with Beachbody! It’s always a plus when you’re able to maximize your results by using our Performance supplements, Recovery and Energize.

My wife signed up as a coach for Beachbody and when she was doing the coaching, the workout and the Shakeology I saw the changes. I started with Shakeology then she introduced me to the Performance Line. The Hydrate and Nighttime Recovery have all the bases covered. It was a system that worked with itself. It will give you the energy and the recovery. My digestion doesn't do good with the other ones that I've tried. I was talking to my wife and chuckled because we looked at getting other lines and other supplements to save 20 to 30 bucks but every time we try that we feel terrible so we keep going back. Beachbody is worth the extra cost.
Beachbody products looked easy and they were the first one I saw, so I went with them. I got their INSANITY workout program and my purchase experience was good. I did the INSANITY workout and I got the results I wanted. They delivered on what they promised so I’m very happy.
We are thrilled to know that you have decided to join the Beachbody team!
Did you know that you can submit your before and after results for a chance to win some awesome prizes?
We wish you the best of luck on your fitness journey.

I've seen Beachbody on TV and I've seen the reviews and results, so I decided to go with it. I ended up ordering Body Beast and I've been using it for a year. The Beachbody team is awesome.
We understand how the lack of online visibility and self-service management of your current subscriptions could be a little frustrating and have received similar feedback from other customers.
Based on this feedback, over the next few months we will be making several major enhancements to our website(s), shopping experience, and self-service portals to hopefully make this a little easier.
We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced and hope we are able to service you again in the future.
Original review: Sept. 1, 2017
I tried BBOD for the trial period and was under the impression that it would renew for a 12-month subscription at the end of the trial period. When it renewed, I saw the line item on my bank account statement and thought nothing of it. Today, I find out I was only shared for a 3-month subscription. The issue is that I never received any receipt for the transaction. There's nowhere online for me to be able to see that my membership was not what I thought, and I didn't find out about the problem until they sent me an e-mail saying so AFTER the 3-month subscription ended.
Furthermore, they only emailed me because my old credit card got replaced. Otherwise, I would have been none the wiser until I saw the charge. I called them today and learned of the error. I understand that I played a role in this and that I should have noticed the difference in the amount I was expecting vs what I was charged, but I honestly didn't. I saw the "Beachbody" charge when my trial period ended and since I had been expecting the charge, I thought nothing of it.
Fast forward to recent events: 2 days ago, I received an email saying my card was declined (it got replaced and I guess they tried to charge the old one) and I didn't call right away because I thought it was an email in error. It said nothing in the email regarding the attempted charge, the reason for the charge, the amount they attempted to charge - NOTHING. Furthermore, I have still been accessing the site to workout everyday and when I go to my account screen it shows nothing more than my email address (the "my account" screen has always been useless).
So, again, I had no way of knowing that my membership was over or close to ending prior to today's telephone conversation. Today, I called customer service to see what was going on and why I'd received the email. When my representative mentioned that my subscription ended, I explained that I remember selecting "12-month" for my renewal option and was under the impression that the 12-month option was what I had.
In a nutshell, they were unwilling to do anything to help me and wanted me to simply pay for a new subscription to start over today. I don't think that's great customer service, especially considering the lack of available information on the website (even for members) about our memberships and the fact that prior to recently, the only way to get any information about my account was to make a phone call and wait on hold for an indefinite amount of time to speak to a live agent (even now, I can only send requests via an online submission form. I still can't see my account information on my account screen). This is just horrible customer service and a clear lack of customer focus. I feel like I wasted my money because I would have never purposely paid for the 3-month subscription given its price compared to the other options.
Due to the lack of customer service that I received, I won't be recommending BBOD at all. I think BBOD needs to update their website and make account information visible to the account holders. Don't make us jump through hoops to see what's going on with our membership. Lastly, given the lack of information available to members and the lack of ease in getting the necessary information, they should be more willing to extend memberships for members within a grace period of expiration. It is apparent that they care very little about helping people reach their fitness goals and instead only care about how many nickels and dimes they can squeeze out of their members.

The DVDs of the Beachbody Brazil Butt Lift are packaged in a light cardboard tri-fold with sections separated by glue. One of my DVDs no longer works. After looking at the DVD, I realized that this DVD along with the other two, have semi-dried gummy glue around the edges. I am sure the DVDs arrived that way and just over more time the glue became too thick. DO NOT BUY or at least transfer your DVDs to different packaging when you receive it. These DVDs are expensive and I am very, very upset that I no longer have access to one-third of the program!

The coach was excellent! However, the exercise tech had a glitch, and they charged my account, even though I had cancelled by phone to end the trial. I had to cancel my debit card to avoid being ripped off by them.

Original review: Aug. 28, 2017
I first heard about Beachbody on television years ago when I bought one of the programs. But then more recently, one of my girlfriends became a Beachbody coach and she tried to get me involved in it for a while. At first, I told her I wasn’t ready but eventually, she got me to get involved. I ordered up from Sears either CIZE or PiYo program then I moved on to doing Country Heat and eventually started doing 21 Day Fix. It's the program that I stick with now. And then on Facebook, I'm also doing 21 Day Fix and started doing Shakeology close to two years now. I’ve been doing them very faithfully and I'm down over 65 pounds, so I've been very successful with it. I'm now using Recover as well. And during my journey, I commenced my husband to become a coach so he could get on the journey as well. He became a coach late December and he signed up under my coach.
I’m 100% satisfied after using their products, but the only thing I don't like is when I order the packet, they’re only 24. It's a little bit of a ripoff 'cause I don't get a full month's supply. They could change up a little bit on that. Then dealing with some of the customer service when I would call to Beachbody, sometimes it's a little bit annoying trying to talk to some of the reps because I can't understand a lot of them. And when I’m trying to deal with an issue or a problem that I have, I also get a runaround. But it hasn't stopped me from using the product because I love it and the results that I've had.
Also, the on-demand was a great aspect. But they don’t make it affordable for everybody. Many people that I know would love to try and do their shakes. But that's one of the main complaints when I try to talk it over. My husband and I run a group together on Facebook and we have 36 people underneath it. We promote together the shakes, Autumn Calabrese's exercises and Shaun T when we're doing Shaun T week. My husband's doing Body Beast right now, so he's promoting it and I'm promoting 21 Day Fix.
People comment on us saying "You guys are doing fabulous" and "We would love to try the shakes." We have given sample shakes out there but they're not affordable for average families and not everybody can afford them. I have an 11-year-old and we were thinking about getting him the Daily Sunshine shakes. When we look at the price, it is a little bit pricey. It isn't readily affordable for everybody unless they become a discount buyer or a coach, but not everybody wants to be a coach.
It was a pleasure speaking with you. It looks like your request was received after the Money Back Guarantee expired. Although all of your subscriptions were cancelled as you requested, the agent failed to properly explain the refund process and the amount you were entitled, so we can totally understand your frustration.
To make up for this, you have been refunded in full.
We apologize for any confusion.
Original review: Aug. 17, 2017
The Beachbody Coach had no problems talking me into this even after I described that I have health issues. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and couldn't participate in the workouts. The Shakeology gave me gastrointestinal issues, my MD told me to stop using. After I explained my issues to My coach, I received no assistance from her. I called BOD several times, finally someone told me I was going to get a refund for $171.72. It's been 2 1/2 months and nothing, but they had no problem discontinuing the BOD. This company makes millions of dollars, coaches make money, but no one gives a crap about the consumer! It's a total Sham.
We tried reaching out to resolve the inquiry regarding your Team Beachbody Club charges, but it seems like we missed you!
Your Club subscription is cancelled as of 8/14/2017.
We also understand you’re busy and cancelling before your trial expired might have slipped your mind, so as a courtesy we have refunded the last two charges.
If you have any other questions, please reach out to us via ConsumerAffairs.com or the original email we sent.

I ordered some exercise DVDs a while back (maybe a year ago). I purchased through Amazon and paid in one payment if I remember correctly. The DVDs are gone now, I think one of my grandkids took them home by accident. I haven't seen them since... but I realized a few months ago that these people are charging me a monthly fee on my credit card about $41 or so a month. For what? I have no idea! I contacted the company and they said they would cancel whatever it is, but the charges keep coming. I wish I knew what I was being charged for - I never get anything from them. This company is a horrible scam and I hope other people read my review and know not to trust them or purchase anything from them.
It’s been a pleasure assisting you! We are happy to know we were able to resolve all your concerns.

I thought I would try this out because my friend kept nagging me about it and I figured that with a 30 day money back guarantee - what would I have to lose. When I started the shakes I began gaining weight rapidly and realized that there's tons of sugar in the shakes (I've been sugar-free for over a year) and the workouts really weren't my style. So within their 30 day period, I requested a refund and sent back all the products. I've continued to follow-up for months and they say that my request has expired so I can't receive my refund. It's a total sham and all they care about is their bottom line and screwing people over.

Autoship is not easily understood, which means you get shipped and charged your order every month. Returning the item that was auto shipped without your knowledge is extremely difficult. After following the instructions for return on the back of the receipt, you must go online to get a Return Authorization number in order to return the product and the company says that they will email you the number within a couple days. I did not receive any email with a return authorization number which I needed to return the product. Once again I had to call Beachbody and the representative told me that the instructions on the back of the receipt are outdated and you can just do everything on the app now.
I finally get everything I needed from Beachbody to return the product that I never wanted in the first place and I get to the post office and they say it will be ten dollars to ship it back. At that point I felt very taken advantage of and duped by this company. A postal worker stated that Beachbody is not a good company and she often has many consumers that are returning things and have issues with the company.
I’m sorry we missed you! To assure your inquiry has been resolved, please contact us at your earliest convenience on the original email we sent.
After reviewing your account, we confirmed a request to return your initial Challenge Pack order was submitted, however a cancellation request for your Shakeology auto shipments was not received.
Although both requests must be submitted separately, we can confirm your auto shipments have been cancelled and you have been refunded for your July shipment. We will gladly assist with a return request for your Shakeology that processed in June. Once we receive proof of the return, your funds will be refunded to the credit card on file.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

This is the biggest scam on the planet!!! I first, canceled on line and - lo and behold - you continued to send me your products & charge my card, until I was forced to call in and get someone to cancel!!! I demand a full refund - I do not want any more this awful product and this scam of a company!!! It's like robbery - when I did it online, the customer service person apologized but, of course, nothing she could do about it. It was all my problem!!! Do not give this company your money - they act like "no problem" if you change your mind but they keep hard selling and charging your card. Plus Shakeology is bad for you - it has metals in the powder - google it.
The product was shipped from our warehouse, but it seems as though it may have been lost in transit with FedEx since there is no updated tracking available.
We processed a reshipment and a courtesy refund was processed for the delay.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Original review: June 24, 2017
I was emailed a "shipping confirmation" several days ago. Each day I check status, and nothing is happening. The packaged has not been picked up by FedEx. I have read of others with this experience. It seems Beachbody is charging their customers for packages never sent out in Ohio. I did chat with customer service who says another package will ship, but I am not holding my breath!
I’m so glad to know you have had great results with using Beachbody on Demand! It’s such a great tool for people like yourself that are looking for a lifestyle change with a variety of workouts available right in your home!
One of the hardest part of a fitness journey is turning your routine into a lifestyle, and we are so glad to be part of that change for you.

I have been doing Beachbody workouts since January 2017. I have completed 4 programs and have dabbled in dozens of others. Though I have only lost 5 lbs I have lost 15 overall inches and have totally changed the shape of my body. I am leaner and tighter and can even see my abs! All while following my nutrition about 80% of the time. I do subscribe to the on-demand service as well as Shakeology and Energize. I am very pleased with my results. I feel better. I have more energy. I sleep better. I am more regular and I have fewer cravings. The workouts are challenging but not difficult and if there is something you cannot do there is a modifier for just about every move. I enjoy working out from home and the workouts range from 22 min to 50 min. I highly recommended Beachbody workouts to anyone who is looking to change their body and their life!
Glad to hear you are really taking advantage of the variety Beachbody on Demand has to offer! You can always change it up depending on your goals or even mood.
Keep going and make it a lifestyle! We believe in you!
Original review: June 14, 2017
I was interested with being able to just try Beachbody's new workout at home without having to go to the gym so I got the year-long all access and their Shakeology Home Direct. I have already used everything I bought, really liked it and am going to stick with it. There were so many different types of exercises or workouts and this is what I liked. It's been really a positive experience for me overall. Also, I think it's great especially for busy people or people with kids.
I’m happy to hear you believe in our products as much as we do! With FocusT25 only taking up 25 minutes of your day, you can still get amazing results if you really stick and push through the program.
Keep up the great work!
Original review: June 5, 2017
I'm very impressed with Beachbody’s T25. Their products were more substantial than others, not gimmicky and they really worked. You do the workout and you follow the program, you're going to succeed. With the right effort, yields tremendous results.
After reviewing your account, it looks like you used the ActiVit cancellation form to cancel your Shakeology. This led to a delay in processing your request.
At this time, Shakeology cancellation requests must be done through chat or phone. On May 27, 2017 you did attempt to chat with us, but the chat was disconnected from your end, so your request was not completed.
We understand how this may have been frustrating, but be assured your Shakeology subscription has been cancelled. We’ve also sent you a prepaid shipping label to return the last shipment to make this as easy as possible.
Original review: June 3, 2017
This company is by far the worst ever!!! I wish I would've reviewed all the reviews before hand!!! Customer service is a joke!! I reached out to them to cancel my order on the 27th. Was told it was cancelled. They charged my card and told me it was shipped! Which that was a lie!!! I was told by my doctor this product for me wouldn't be good due to medical reasons! I expressed this to them as well! Spoke to someone via chat that was a ** joke! How the hell was my card charged after I told them to cancel!! They also do they have no record of me canceling! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone!!! Please save yourself the heartache!!! Now conveniently I have to wait until my order is shipped to send it back to get a refund! After I told them I couldn't use this product... I'm beyond pissed!
Congratulations on losing 80 pounds! We love to hear your progress also influenced your wife to join you on your fitness journey!

Original review: June 2, 2017
I was 48 when I purchased P90X from Beachbody. I was intrigued by the fact that Tony Horton was the same age when he made those. I had looked like that in my past when I was in my 20s and a couple of years when I was in good shape in my 30s, and I wanted to see if I could get back in that kind of shape in my 40s. I ordered online and the product came 4 days later as it was advertised. It changed my life at the time and I was extremely satisfied. I dropped 80 pounds and I was able to pretty much do anything that I wanted to do again like biking and hiking. I was always doing diets where I lost a lot of weight quickly by deprivation of calories and increased activity. But for the first time in most of my athletic and weight loss endeavors during my life, I followed the diet plan religiously for about a year and a half and lost the weight slower.
The premise of P90X is that I'm not repeating the same motions over and over on the same muscles. I'm constantly changing and constantly in a state of about 20% soreness which is good because it always reminded me that I had worked out, watched my diet and I was working hard. But the gains were phenomenal from the strength and weight loss standpoint. My wife did it too and she dropped about 20 pounds even though she didn't need to. We did the whole 90 days five consecutive times then we did Insanity. We bought that off eBay but that was an eight-week program. Then my wife got the Zumba and the Brazil Butt Lift, and I also bought P90X3.
I still use the muscle confusion concept today, though I don't always do P90X. But I still do most of the moves from it. I generally work out at the Y now because I do some swimming and a lot of low impact aerobics. I can't run anymore because of my age and my knees so I do a lot of elliptical and I need a gym for that. But I turned on a dozen people that bought from Beachbody because they saw what I was doing. My kids and their friends also got into it and we used to do P90X workout parties, which was awesome.
Congratulations on completing P90X3!
Tony Horton is one of our first trainers and helped thousands of people reach their goals! Tony's P90 series has something for everyone. We're so happy to hear about your success story.
We wish you the best in your health and fitness journey.
Original review: May 31, 2017
My dad did the classic P90X a few years ago and then he introduced me to P90X3. I downloaded them and got close to the end. When I saw the BOD or the Beachbody On Demand, I bought the subscription right away since I knew the quality of the program and how super good of a deal that was. I chose Beachbody because I know the programs worked specifically P90X, and I also love the P90X3 and the classic.
I had no problem with my purchasing experience as well. I've seen the comments on the fan page where a lot of people are complaining about how there's been a lot of bugs and how it doesn't work, and how they paid their membership but they couldn't sign up. But, I've used it on my Mac, my PC, and my iPhone and it works fine. I'm in the best shape of my life right now. I did a full run of 22 Minute Hard Corps mid-January. We got into Mexico and I brought my Beachbody because they don't know yet, and they absolutely work. They're great., and I love them. I recommend Beachbody all the time.
Insanity is definitely one of our more challenging workouts, so kudos to you for completing it three times already!
Keep up the great work! We wish you the best in your health and fitness goals.

It was my brother that originally started with Beachbody a while back. He had got the DVDs for P90X about five years ago at this point. Then, I saw the Beachbody on Demand on a commercial. They were doing a 30-day free trial a year ago. I tried that out and that’s what really changed everything for me. With the program before, you would get the DVDs, be stuck with a TV and have to create a workout area where your TV was. But with the Beachbody on Demand, not only did it give me access to a whole other set of workout plans that I didn’t have access to where I would have to pay way more to get, I was able to go to my garage and work out.
I can go outside and work out, which really worked better for me because I have a set of twins and in between the time of actually me starting with the P90X and then meeting the On Demand, it was not working out for me. They would be around or they’d be asleep and I couldn’t make any noise. Also, we recently got a new house and I didn’t want it to go all sweaty in the house. So I really needed to take my exercise outside. It’s really worked better for me to be able to just access it on my phone, take it out there or take my laptop or tablet and be able to just go straight from there. P90X was something that I trusted and I had done some Insanity at that time, but there were so many other programs that I hadn’t touched at all and I didn’t get any results until I really got dedicated with the Beachbody on Demand.
The variety is something that really helps me to lose the weight because you tend to get burnt out when you’re stuck with one program. When I was doing just P90X, after the first 60 days, I didn’t want to see Tony again. Then, I got this On Demand and I can switch from program to program. I do a lot of the Challenge Du Jours and now I love when Tony pops back up on my screen. When people ask me how I did and what program I used, I say I didn’t use one single program. I used a bunch of different programs. Variety is the key to life and I switched it up all the time and tried to stay consistent. That’s one of the great things about Beachbody on Demand. I’ve recommended it to several people already.
Adam, we are so glad you have pointed out how little time one of our workouts takes away from your daily life. One of our goals is to create workouts that will allow our customers to complete them without deferring or alternating their normal routines or schedules.
Especially with having a family, we understand how spending time with them is just as important as your health and we are so happy to hear Beachbody has been able to help you lead a lifestyle where working out and spending time with your family do not interfere with each other.
Thank you for this sincere and honest response about your experience with Beachbody.
Original review: May 26, 2017
Beachbody had taken the time to sit down and talk to me a little bit about their programs, which from my research, seemed to have very good quality. The first product I’ve used was one I had borrowed from a friend who allowed me to just give it a try and the first one I’ve purchased was the T25. I'm 100% satisfied with the results. Purchasing from them was great but we were a little bit concerned at first. With being in Canada, we didn’t know about shipping and the length of time and delays and all that kind of stuff but it was very seamless and smooth.
I like the ability to work out from my home around my own schedule, my work commitment and family. And a big part of that decision for me was work takes me away from home a lot so the idea of going to the gym when I get home and leaving my son yet again for another hour, two hours in a day seemed a little bit senseless if I could be at home with him. Overall, my experience was fantastic and I would definitely recommend Beachbody.
This is such an amazing response to our Beachbody products. It is also a great and rewarding accomplishment to have dropped 40 lbs! We really hope you continue to use Beachbody as an essential tool in your fitness journey.
You mentioned purchasing several programs, however keep in mind that just recently Beachbody released Beachbody on Demand All Access which provides access to every program Beachbody has ever created! Previously, BOD All Access was only available at an annual rate of $99.95, however as of June 1st 2017 all Team Beachbody Club members, whether you are paying monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually, you will have complete access to all of the content. The intention with this offer is to provide a wide variety and broad selection for the consumer.
If you want further information on BOD All Access please follow this link: https://faq.beachbody.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4643
Keep up the great work Tracy!

My wife is a Beachbody coach and I saw her getting great results. She was consistent with it and she's been doing it for a little while. At first, I didn't pay too much attention to it and was just doing my own thing. I didn't really think it was for me. But then I noticed that I was a little heavier than I wanted to be. So I decided that it was time to make some change. Since my wife had been dedicated to the programs for a while and was getting good results, I figured it was time to commit myself and see if I could make the necessary change.
I have some friends who go to the gym regularly, but I don't like to go to the gym as I'm a bit more of a shy person. Working out at home was more acceptable for me. I don't know if I would have turned to Beachbody had my wife not been involved in it before. There's a lot of advertisement online for it. It may have only been a matter of time before I took the chance. My wife was drinking Shakeology already. The products were in my home and I was being exposed to them without the interest being there. Over time, the interest was built.
The first program that I've purchased was the 22-Minute Hard Corps. I used it through and through, finished and completed the program. I sent in my results and got the challenge coin, which I keep on my table as a constant reminder of the hard work and dedication that I put in over the course of eight weeks. After finishing that program, we did a round of 21-Day Fix. I didn't need to purchase that program because my wife had already purchased that. We went ahead and did that. And then, now we're actually doing The Master's Hammer and Chisel program. The wife knew exactly the kind of what we needed to get drinking, like regular Shakeology orders. And then, we've been getting the Performance line, Energize as well as Recover. It's super easy to find what we're looking for. We place the orders and get them in a timely manner.
I really enjoy the program and enjoy the routines. I didn't think that I will enjoy them as much as I did. I didn't think that I would stick with them as long as I have. But it's been a complete lifestyle change for me. Initially, I said to my wife that I was gonna give it 90 days. I was gonna give it a full three months, commit and work out as much as I could within the 90 days and see what I could get done in terms of change. With all the changes that I've done to my body, it's been a lifestyle change. I haven't just changed my eating habits, I've changed everything. On my sleeping routines, eating routines and my day-to-day routine. Everything's changed. I don't see myself going back to the old lifestyle. After everything that's happened and all the changes and work that I've put in and all the results that I've received, I'm certainly not going to go back. It's a lifestyle change for good now and I'm going to commit to continuing on this journey forever.
We have a great level of satisfaction. One of the biggest things about Beachbody that works for me is that I've got to be willing to commit to the half an hour or whatever it's gonna take. A lot of times, it's hard to find time in a day or hard to find the energy in the day. Also, I find that it takes a short amount of to get these workouts done. It's easy to isolate that time in the day and just go ahead and hit play. I enjoy the results that I've got. Before I started doing any Beachbody, I was up at over 235. Now, I'm sitting at 195 so I'm really impressed with the results that I've had.
I already lost 40 pounds but I want to get into a better physical condition. I still have a bit of a belly and I don't have the muscle definition that I would like to have. Once I have all of that and once I finish this program that we're doing now, I'm confident that I'll have more results to speak for myself personally. That personal experience is what I'll use to promote and sell the product. I am committed to sharing the experience and recommending it to others. As soon as I have enough results, I'll be going to that road of becoming a coach and trying to be successful with that as well.

I've recently been looking into PiYo, I think it looks like a great program. This review is not about the program it's about ordering… I found out you don't have to click SUBMIT to process your order. I went throughout in my CC and billing then at the end saw $15 for shipping so I left the site and found I could either buy them on Amazon w/ free shipping or get the online membership. I was about to purchase the online membership when I had received an email from Beachbody that my order had been processed… What the heck. I never submitted the order.
I called customer service to cancel mind you but didn't even have an order number. It was not in the email. I was told I could not cancel because it was already shipped? Fishy. 3 days later I received a shipping confirmation. He also said, "Oh most people don't know the order is processed in step 1." WTH is that legal? You don't even have to click submit to submit your order??? Needless to say it's coming anyway. I've blocked the charge from my credit card and I will refuse and return the package. What a scam! Customer service advised me to open it and use the return label inside. My CC co. said that's so they can make me pay for the shipping. Refuse and return! After the horrible customer service I no longer want the streaming subscription either. I'm afraid of giving them my CC!

I purchased the 21 Day Fix DVD set. It is great. Then Country Heat came out. I was told the online version was better since it can travel with you but even if I cancelled my online subscription (used for tracking your daily progress) I would still have access to Country Heat since I purchased it for the same price I would have purchased the DVDs. I asked prior to buying as to the difference so I could make my decision. I know myself well enough to know the workouts go well for a while, then I stop for months. So, knowing I would still have access when I travel even though I cancelled the online subscription, I decided on the online version.
Now I am told, I will only have access to it until July since I cancelled the online subscription. AND since you can't call anyone ever, I am stuck via chat and email. Had the rep been honest with me from the beginning, I would have purchased the DVD's so I would have them forever not just until my online subscription stopped. What a waste of money!!
We know how hard it can be to get back into the groove of working out after a break however 22 Minute Hard Corps serves great workout moves similar to the ones that are taught in the military.
Great job on finding the workout program that works best for you! We have something for everyone here at Beachbody!

I was looking for a new routine to start getting my body back into shape again after everything I've been through. Prior to joining the military, I was using different types of programs. I knew the ones that were already out there after all these years. My wife and I were thinking that we needed to find some programs that fit our needs. She started researching and she told me about Beachbody.
I started on January 29th with The Master's Hammer and Chisel. My wife looked it up and thought that that would be a good fit and I completed the 60-day program. I was really impressed when I first started out with The Master's Hammer & Chisel to where I was feeling comfortable. Right after that, on the 7th, I started the 22 Minute Hard Corps. We also ordered the PiYo program.
Beachbody is a very good program. I'm impressed with its layout, the format, how they explain things very clearly and concisely. I really enjoy the fact that when a person can't do the routine properly, they have people that do the modifications. That was really helpful and beneficial in the beginning because of some of my injuries and problems with bending my foot, my knee and my wrist. So I was able to do it a hundred percent with some modifications through a different routine. All in all, Beachbody is pretty decent if people want to do it.
We are sorry you are not getting the results you expected, but we have a variety of available tools and resources that may be able to help.

My wife suggested I join her and I agreed as I need to lose weight and I am a heart patient. We are in month two and I have not lost one pound after all the money we have spent. Directions have been followed to no avail. I am very disappointed with this product

We ordered the focus T25 in March with a three-day delivery. After more than a week had passed, it took a large amount of time just to get someone to respond with an answer that showed they had actually read the question. After some discussion, it was established it would now be with me in a few days and a refund on post and packing was offered. Discs received and we are working our way through the workouts. However. We are still awaiting the promised refund from 6 weeks ago. After what is now 9 emails and calls, we are still no closer to the elusive refund and I have lost ALL faith in the firm. If only they read the emails, without just responding in a robotic and offhand manner I could have been recommending them. Instead, I am unable to.
We haven’t been able to reach you by phone or email, but want to make sure we address your concern.
The Coach agreement is a business where commissions can be earned; therefore, the cancellation process is separate, and differs, from Home Direct (auto-shipment) cancellations for nutritional supplements.
Since we never received the Coach Cancellation form, your business remained active which explains the continued fees.
As a courtesy, we have cancelled your Coach business account as of 7/24/2017 and have also refunded the Business Service Fees incurred since you called us to cancel your HD shipments.

I decided to try Beachbody after seeing all the talk about it over a year ago. After a month I knew that beachbody was good at marketing and training coaches to over post so it seems like an amazing product. My review isn't on the product. That's a different complaint. I called and cancelled twice. Once to cancel all the auto pay fees, then again when they took them out anyways the next month. No refund! They claim I didn't cancel. Ok, so I let it go since it's a pyramid scheme and I knew it by this point. They confirmed to me I was cancelled in all areas (they create it so you have your products under one account, coach under another, Shakeology under another so cancel all or they keep taking it out). The next month, did it again. So I logged in and canceled under "live chat" and let them know I'm on to their scam and I've cancelled twice already and now I'm doing live chat and recording the screen.
Still no refunds and he cancelled all of the accounts and I got it recorded. I took it further and called my credit card and tried to block the charge in the future. Get this. They use a different transaction code each month they charge so you can't block it! They know they are scamming you! They know you will try to block it when you cancel because they plan on continuing to charge after you cancel!!! I'm almost a year into this now, cancelled multiple times, hate the product, and I'm still paying!!! Have an appointment with a lawyer tomorrow finally and starting a lawsuit. I'm far from the only one with this issue, so class action lawsuit here we come. Buyer beware before you sign up. They will lock you into the scam, and read up on beachbody, and don't just listen to the marketing from them and the massive sales force that they have online.
Looks like we have called and emailed you however we were unable to reach you.
I initially mentioned a quality check reshipment was requested for the Piyo DVDs, however due to a recent process update, we have emailed you instructions on how to create a Team Beachbody free player account. Once you have created the account, we will unlock the content for Piyo so you are able to access the workouts.
If you need further assistance on creating your account or accessing the content, please feel free to reach out to me on the original email.

I ordered the PIYO DVD's and everything was great til I was doing the Strength Intervals workout and it wouldn't play, just got stuck so I called customer service and got another DVD shipped to me and the 2nd DVD did the exact same thing in the exact same spot of the workout... just got stuck. I called to hopefully work this out but your customer service rep Jordan would not assist me in getting the other DVD that is on the calendar but not included in the package. THIS is a rip-off. You send me jacked up, faulty disks twice and then say, "Oh let me send you the same faulty DVD". Unacceptable!!!
Your product is defective. Send me a disk that works the 1st or 2nd time but don't keep sending me the same jacked up DVD. So dissatisfied with your product and customer service!! Horrible experience. Will try to get a refund and I hope this process isn't as defective as your product. Do you know how frustrating it is to be all into a workout and the DVD just stops and won't even continue to play even if you fast forward it? Terrible product and customer service all the way around. So disappointed.
Hi Laura,Congrats on losing 60 pounds while using our products!
Thank you for sharing your success and encouraging others to join Team Beachbody.
Have you ever considered becoming a Team Beachbody Coach? We think you would be great in assisting others with their fitness goals.
Keep up the great work.Sincerely,

I have purchased the original Power 90 by Tony Horton from back in the day. I still love it even though it's old school. It's a little dated but it gets the results that you want. I also have Beachbody’s On Demand and that was the biggest one. It was a present for my husband and it has also been my main tool. Lately, I have done 21 Day Fix and I'm currently doing T25. I did the new Power 90 and I hope to do 21 Day Fix Extreme next.
I'm extremely pleased with the results of using Beachbody products. After having both my kids, it's been back and forth with my weight and the original Power 90 was always my go-to. I'd always pop the DVD in if I wanted to get good results in those three months. And I always lost the weight. But from doing some of the other programs which I didn't have access to until I got On Demand, I've been able to tone up a bit and get more energy. Also, I absolutely love that Beachbody has variations. I just started in September and I actually got to my goal late in January or February. I’ve lost 55 to 60 pounds and I'm now down between 155 and 150. I'm maintaining at 157, give or take what I eat during the day.
Beachbody is a fantastic program. I do recommend them to everybody. I tell all my friends about it. I love the trainers and I think they're awesome. I also love working out at home and I'm not a big gym person. I don't have time and I don't want people watching me because I feel silly. Also, I've got kids and I'm not going to cart them to daycare.
