Question Qs - BBOD, 80 Day Obsession, BB Coach purchases

Hi all,

Long time. I came here last night and poked around a bit - fun to see what has and has not changed.

Based on last night's research:

1. I would like to get the $99 BBOD annual membership, and start with the Obsessions;

2. There's a local BB coach who comes highly recommended, I'd like to work with her- she requires purchasing Shakeology, or Performance Line, or Daily Option - then doesn't every bug you again about purchasing anything.

3. I don't want Shakeology, I'm pretty sure I don't want Performance Line or Daily Sunshine (though I've only tried Shakeology), so...

4. I'm wondering if she would accept an equipment purchase in lieu of the above, but even there I don't think there's anything I really want - I have a pretty well stocked gym - thinking maybe those smaller band loops;

5. Any intel on BB's newer equipment products? any stand outs? I've got soo many bands, balls, mats! I've also got food containers that work far better than Beachbody's.

I guess it doesn't really matter and I should just consider the initial purchase as the price of admission. I'd appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

Do you need a coach to subscribe to BBOD?

So I have almost no personal experience with beachbody except a Les Mills Body Combat purchase in 2013 (gift for someone else). I ordered through Mary (totalfitnessdvds) and it was easy and I never was contacted or pressured to buy anything else beachbody related.

I guess now with Mary you have to order through her team beachbody page in order to have streaming access later to the same content if desired. See this thread for instance: http://www.videofitness.com/~vfwnk/f...d.php?t=218234

Is there a particular reason you want to buy through this coach that requires a shakeology, etc. purchase?

Thanks adawn,

Hereís the problem - the *coach* is what I *actually* want - she comes highly recommended and seems to get good results. By all accounts you make an initial purchase (in this case Shakeology and the 80 day obsession equipment package (which adds another $70 to the $99 a year deal) and she never asks you to buy anything again. Honestly Iíd prefer to just give her the $70 (We didnít even connect via BB) but sheís not taking the hint. So Iím about to get a kit filled with stuff I donít want or already have plus a container of shake powder that I donít really care for. Beachbody! Whaddaya gona do?

Iíve bought BB and other stuff from Mary before- Sheís the best. Iíve just heard that local coach lady runs a great challenge and keeps your motivation/spirit up. I could some positive talk. Itís a good thing. ;-) Thanks again.

Ah, ok. I didn't consider the motivation/challenge aspect.
