What Is Shakeology?

There’s a reason why it’s called “the Healthiest Meal of the Day”. Keep your nutritional goals on track with just one shake a day – drink it in the morning if you typically skip breakfast, or in the afternoon like I do, to curb your cravings, boost your energy during “siesta time”, and help bridge that gap between lunch and dinner.

What’s in Shakeology?

With over 70 ingredients in one bag of Shakeology, it’s so much more than a typical “protein shake”. No sugar or artificial sweeteners, and it comes in 4 delicious flavours: Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry (NEW!) and Greenberry. It also comes in 2 Vegan flavours (for those of us, like me, who don’t digest Whey protein very well): Vegan Chocolate or Vegan Tropical Strawberry.

Better yet, watch P90X’s Tony Horton explain it for you, as only Tony can…

What are my Options?

Shakeology comes in 6 delicious options (click for info/nutritional information):

Shakeology is available in 2 convenient formats:

  • A box of 24 single-serving packages, easy to grab and go, so you can take it anywhere
  • A 30-day supply bag to keep in your kitchen – the BEST value

You can either purchase Shakeology one order at a time, or you can sign up for Home Direct (monthly autoship).

The benefits of Home Direct include:

  • SUPER DISCOUNT $2 Canadian economy shipping every month (FREE within the continental US)
  • Ability to cancel your order anytime – no contracts or commitments
  • Online access to 2 FREE workouts
  • Ability to change your order each month – need to skip a month? want to try another flavour? change from 24-packets to the Bag? NO PROBLEM. Customize your order yourself, online, or by calling Beachbody customer service

Bottom of the Bag Guarantee

Beachbody is so sure that Shakeology will improve your health, they’ve created an amazing guarantee. Try Shakeology for 30 days. If you don’t start to see and feel the benefits of Shakeology within the first month of using it, or if you’re not 100% satisfied for any reason, simply call Customer Service within 30 days for a full refund of the purchase price (less shipping & handling).

Even if the bag is totally empty. Try doing that at your local grocery or health food store!

What have you got to lose? Except maybe a few pounds and those junk-food cravings.

 

How to Save Money on Shakeology

If you’ve committed to giving Shakeology a try, you’re probably asking “so, how much does it cost?”.

Shakeology is an ultra-premium, nutritionally dense product – it’s not your typical cheap-o protein powder you can pick up just anywhere. It costs just over $4 a serving – which is considerably healthier than your average Venti Caramel Macchiato (300 calories and 8g fat!) and costs less than an Egg McMuffin meal. So when you break it down like that, it’s really great value if you’re going to be replacing a meal (breakfast, like my husband does), or even as a snack (afternoon snack, like I do).

If you’re looking at purchasing a Workout Program PLUS Shakeology, check out the CHALLENGE PACKS, they are by FAR the best value, where you can save up to 50% off your Shakeology order. 

Even knowing the great value it represents, I’ve outlined some great options for you below on how you can save some money buying Shakeology…

Option 1: Home Direct (HD)

By signing up for Home Direct (monthly autoship), you AUTOMATICALLY and INSTANTLY save yourself $13.95 in shipping costs (to Canada) with every order. Remember, you have a 30-day Bottom of the Bag Guarantee, and you can always adjust, skip a month, change your flavours or cancel anytime. I always recommend HD because it’s pretty much a no-brainer.

Total savings: $13.95/month

Option 2: Team Beachbody Club Membership*

Anyone can gain access to the TeamBeachbody.com website through a FREE membership, but when you sign up for the premium CLUB membership, you automatically receive 10% off of all your Beachbody products, including Shakeology. It costs $2.99/week (it’s billed quarterly), so with the CLUB discount, you end up saving about $12.95 per month. I’ve put an * on this option because if you ONLY purchase Shakeology, a CLUB membership has you coming out virtually NEUTRAL financially (cost of CLUB membership = monthly savings on Shakeology), however you end up getting all of the added benefits from the fully featured TeamBeachbody.com website. PLUS, if you ever buy any workout programs or other items, you’ll be automatically ahead of the game. Again, this one to me is another no-brainer.

Total savings: $13.98* (* plus the added value of full CLUB membership/10% discount)

Option 3: Become a Beachbody Coach

Many coaches get their start with Beachbody solely because of the 25% discount it offers – it’s a pretty great deal! For a one-time nominal set-up fee of $39.95 (which is waived if you decide to sign up and buy a Challenge Pack — more on those here), you end up saving a net $16.54/month on Shakeology alone. Again, if you’re ever looking to change up your fitness routine and want to buy another program, your savings there can really start to add up. As a Coach, if the business opportunity interests you, you can also work part-time and earn a bit of income on the side. It wouldn’t take many family or friend referrals before your own Shakeology order is paid for! You can sign up yourself to be a Beachbody Coach here, though I’d love to walk you through the process personally, so just drop me a line and I’ll be happy to help.

Total savings: $16.54, or $30.49 with HD (plus 25% discount on anything else you order)

So here’s the breakdown:

As you can see, with some of these simple options you can save yourself up to $365 a year!
