What is Beachbody?

Beachbody’s weight loss programs motivate and encourage you to follow through with your health and fitness goals. One of Beachbody’s benefits is the emphasis on its community, which provides participants with an active support system. Another highlight is the Beachbody app. Through the app, users have easy access to workouts, meal plans and fitness tracking tools.

How does Beachbody work?

Beachbody offers a variety of products and services, but all of them share the same goal: to make weight loss easier. Participants sign up with a Beachbody coach who guides them through their weight loss journey. These coaches help them choose a program and find products that give them the results they want.

The Beachbody diet program is one of the company’s more popular services. Although there is no specific scientific study backing the program, the company based this diet on common weight loss principles. For instance, the 21 Day Fix eliminates added sugar and refined carbohydrates, which are known to contribute to weight gain.

Beachbody programs

There are several Beachbody programs. Each one has different benefits, such as workout videos and Beachbody meal plans.

  • 21 Day Fix: This weight loss program allows you to lose as many as 15 pounds in three weeks. The plan comes with workout DVDs and meal plan recipes that control your portions. The program typically costs around $70, but the price varies depending on the exact products you purchase.
  • Beachbody on Demand: Beachbody on Demand is a streaming service that gives you immediate access to the company’s meal and fitness programs along with support from a Beachbody coach. With this service, you can stream content anywhere with an internet connection. Subscribers also receive workout calendars and weight loss tracking tools. The service costs $99 a year, but there are short-term options available.
  • 2B Mindset: Beachbody’s 2B Mindset program focuses on helping you lose weight by showing you what you can eat instead of what you can't. The program comes with a 30-day meal plan, video recipes, recipe books and coaching to help you accomplish your goal. The starting cost for the 2B Mindset is $119.
  • Ultimate Portion Fix: This program expands the 21 Day Fix into 30 days and recommends Beachbody’s Shakeology products, fruits and vegetables. Like the 21 Day Fix, this program has you use containers to measure out your portions. Costs start at $74, and buyers get access to cooking videos, resources and the Beachbody community.
  • The Monthly Fix: While the Ultimate Portion Fix comes with 30 days of meal plans and support, the Monthly Fix takes things one step further. After you purchase the Ultimate Portion Fix, you can pay $19.95 a month to get 24/7 access to The Monthly Fix. This gives you FIXATE recipes, meal plans, check-ins and ongoing support from the community. Billing is automatic every month until you cancel.
  • Beachbody Ultimate Reset: Beachbody Ultimate Reset is a 21-day cleanse that eliminates bad foods and toxins from your diet. The base kit costs $199.95, which includes supplements designed to cleanse your body, a three-part nutrition plan and fitness tips.

    Beachbody will be a recurring charge and they are nearly impossible to cancel. DO NOT go with this company. When I tried to cancel they wouldn't cancel for ONE YEAR. They will increase their fees on that reoccurring charge and your credit card will not let you dispute it.

      Be extremely cautious when joining this company, cancelation is next to impossible without having to pay extra. Cancelation is not transparent and although you go through the whole process they continue to apply a fee to your credit card. I canceled my membership in April and was deducted a May payment of 20.38. When I called customer service they said, "You forgot to also cancel a coaching fee," I said, "Well all services were canceled and I unsubscribed?" I spoke with a rep and they concur so why wasn’t I advised of this coaching fee upon cancellation? They said, "Ma'am just pay the fee and I’ll help you reactive your account so you can cancel it again."

      I said, "I’m not paying for another month because you were not transparent with me." She told me I have no voice in the matter nor a choice??? That they will continue to deduct from my credit card monthly and if I don’t pay for the extra month they will not approve a cancelation. Can you imagine the money they are scamming from people that cancel. You probably wouldn’t even notice this coming off your card each month after cancelation. This is a total scam.

      Do not subscribe to Beachbody or any of their services/products. This company is a scam. A subscription renewal was charged for $179 to my spouse’s card for an account that hasn’t been used in 4 years, tried to cancel the same day it charged (within hours of the charge hitting my account) was told no, it’s not possible to do so. The representative then canceled the account removing access to something I paid for. I made a complaint and was told a refund is not possible but they will “reinstate” access to the account for the year just paid for. This is not what was wanted as I have not used the crappy service in years. The products aren’t anything special and the customer service is horrendous.

      They claim to send “reminders” for subscription renewals and when it’s supposedly missed they charge you over a hundred dollars and basically say, "Sorry. Too bad. We sent you an email." Bogus business, hope they go out of business soon. Anyone looking for workout or nutritional guidance should use literally any other company. I personally have had luck with YouTube, using free videos. I’ve also found that other fitness/healthy living companies have much more to offer, better customer service and real solutions to unsatisfactory experiences. Stay far away from this scam artist company.

      You cancel and they still charge you stating that they don't offer refunds. The worst customer service, no one to call. I cancelled the monthly shakes but you still have to cancel the yearly membership, they make it very difficult to get out and depend on you not noticing the last charge of $179. Despicable customer service and products don't work.

      I have loved this company for 20 years. I have loved this company for 20 years. I was a coach, I drank the Shakeology koolaid, I signed other people up, I did all the things. But this year has been rough and I have suffered with medical issues and my mother had a stroke so financially I could not see keeping this membership. I canceled it but Beachbody refuses to give me my $179 back. I’m so upset and I need that money right now but Beachbody doesn’t care. I applied to dispute this and they said I should receive a response in five days. I received an email saying my dispute was declined just a few hours later. They don’t care about you as a person in the slightest.

      Beachbody is no longer a customer friendly business; maybe they never were. Any reputable company would ALWAYS have a money back guarantee within a reasonable time period. No matter your circumstances, they will not give you a refund so there really is no reason to fill out their dispute form. I have been with Beachbody for twenty years but obviously that was twenty years too long. I had always received emails from them letting me know of my upcoming renewal but now they obviously have a way to send emails that do not reach their customers; there is too many reviews here to prove that is the case. And yes I check my spam folder every day. I know that Beachbody will respond to this review and say I have access to their site until April 2025 but I will NEVER get on their site again and I hope and pray that I can influence many people to not even try them. I recommend Studio Sweat instead.

      I have not used this program in a long time. I turned off auto-renew last year. They renewed my account anyway and charged my account over $190. I am very disappointed. I have spent hours trying to get my money back and they do not care about their website charging customers that have unenrolled from auto renew. I also filed a BBB complaint and again they don't care. I will never use this company again and I will be also filing a report with my bank. This has got to stop and is ridiculous at this point.

      How is possible that this company has not been sued for their shady busy practice. Clearly, over 500 1 star reviews demonstrates that they are not transparent in their policies. Explain how the 30 day money back guarantee does not apply to a free trial membership? Does that make sense? If someone cancelled within 30 days of initiating a free trial at minimum they should receive a prorated refund. They know exactly what they are doing and it’s evident by the rude way they reply to reviews. Their app is garbage and works intermittently, and does not support my tv that is 3 yrs old. I know that there is a lawyer somewhere in these 1 stars that should initiate a class action suit for their deceptive practices.

      I am extremely disappointed in Beach Body On Demand. I had been a member for several years and in 2022 I wanted to cancel. I had told my beachbody coach that I was not renewing. They then automatically charged my account so I kept it going. I have not used it in since and I just got auto charged again. I immediately contacted them to cancel and they are refusing to refund the charges even though you pay for the year ahead. This is unacceptable!!!!
