Pay Less for Shakeology

GUEST POST by fellow Pittsburgh Beachbody Coach, Jackie Blizman Damp
A lot of people see the price of Shakeology and say “oh, that’s too expensive!”  But it’s really not when you break it all down and see all of the benefits it brings.
Shakeology costs $119.95.  That breaks down to $4 a day for a full meal as a customer, and $3 a day as a coach.  You can’t even get a $5 footlong, or a salad for that price!  And a lot of people spend a lot of $ on things like a Starbucks coffee and that is EXPENSIVE!  There are ways to make Shakeology so that it tastes like one of those dessert coffees at Starbucks.  But guess what?  Making it with Shakeology,  makes it HEALTHY!
Plus, I have been able to stop taking multivitamins and other supplements because Shakeology is FULL of vitamins and nutrients that have totally replaced those.   I don’t need my digestive enzymes, my whey protein, my multivitamins, or probiotics – it’s all in there!  If you were to buy a one month supply of all of the stuff that goes into Shakeology, it would cost $250 or more.  It’s so convenient to get what you need for the day in one simple shake.
How to save $ on Shakeology
Option 1: As a customer, set it up as Auto Ship.  When you do this, you don’t pay shipping.  So that saves you about $9-10 per month – SWEET!  There’s no time commitment for monthly autoship, and if you’re not happy after 30 days, there’s a 30 day bottom of the bag guarantee.  Yep, it’s true – you can finish the whole bag and if you’re not satisfied, get your $ back.  But you will be – it’s amazing. Signing up for autoship for 1 year saves you about $100-120 on shipping costs!
Option 2: As a customer, become a Beachbody club member.  With a club membership, you can save 10% on your Shakeology.  The club membership costs about $39/quarter, and it comes with a lot of cool features like a personalized nutrition plan, 10% off your purchases, cash prizes for working out, and VIP access to celebrity trainers!  This is a great option if you’re interested in a personalized meal plan, buy other things like vitamins, recovery formula, or P90X One on One monthly DVDS, or if you live outside of the US!
Option 3: The biggest cost savings is to become a Beachbody coach yourself.  You can become a coach just for the discount, or we can work together to build your business for some extra income.  As a coach, you save 25% a month on your Shakeology!  That’s $30 you save!!  So here’s how it works.
Initially, you pay a $39.95 fee to sign up as a coach.  Every month after that, you pay a fee of $14.95.  This fee is basically to keep your websites up and all that stuff so you don’t have to worry about that.  So here’s the net savings per month.
Gross cost of Shakeology: $119.95
Shipping (approximate): $10
Total as a customer not on home direct: $129.95
Coach price @25% off: $89.95
Monthly fee: $14.95
Coach price, with monthly fee: $104.90
Savings per month: $104.90 – $129.95 = $25.05 per month
Per year, that’s $300.60 you save as a coach! 

So, there it is!  I just wanted to share some options to save $ with Shakeology.  If you want a sample, or you have any questions about the product, coaching, or memberships, email me at

Thanks, Jackie!


  1. Thank you for this... I was doing the math in my head, but for some reason it just seems more real to see laid out... I have someone planning on buying and I want to show this to them...

  2. Thank you for your information. I just started Slim in Six last week and so far, so good. Does the average person also pay tax on the Shakeology? And how long does it take to arrive once ordered?

  3. Congrats on Slim in Six! Who is your Coach? I got to work out with Debbie Siebers last week in LA. It was great. Yes, everyone pays tax on Shakeology. As for delivery time, anywhere from 2-5 days. Please feel free to email me at for more information.
