    How can someone be "fired" if it's their own business?

    Some bodybuilders apparently are also able to do the clean and jerk with nonsense that is endless recruiting. The comments I read were not panning the workout, but the MLM component of Beachbody.

    They are better than most pimps will give you. FYI: I'm not in it. I found the ad in my spam folder and posted it here for discussion. Now we have covered all bases.

    Any thoughts on any of this? Seems the company is holding people out to be "coaches" and is plenty happy to cash their checks. Beyond that, customers and affiliates alike get the Sgt Schultz.

    Does Tony Horton show up in court if an affiliate gets sued for violating laws the FDA has on advertising supplements?

    What does the FDA say about this type of advertising..JPG




    Is it legal to market a dietary supplement product as a treatment or cure for a specific disease or condition?


    No, a product sold as a dietary supplement and promoted on its label or in labeling* as a treatment, prevention or cure for a specific disease or condition would be considered an unapproved--and thus illegal--drug. To maintain the product's status as a dietary supplement, the label and labeling must be consistent with the provisions in the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994.*Labeling refers to the label as well as accompanying material that is used by a manufacturer to promote and market a specific product.

    Is there a number where these folks can get in touch with Tony?

    I haven't tried Shakeology, so I can't speak intelligently on the topic. In general, I don't like products I have to ingest unless they are prescribed by people who have verifiable medical training.

    Re: Team Beachbody

    Google has even more complaints filed with the same organization:

    Consumer complaints for Google, Inc. - Serving the Silicon Valley BBB

    Unless the number is presented as some sort of proportion of the total customers, it is meaningless.

    I was going to give you a touche', but where are your proportions? Off the top of my head Google probably has more customers, and users that may think they are customers.


    Complaint
    .
    Google+ crashed my computer I told Google and they did not even answer me. My computer said malware then did a restore. Can you please look in to it?
    There was no other source of malware!It happen right after I linked my YouTube account to Google+. The only way Google is going to be on my good side again is if they make Google+ optional on YouTube. I am not going to settle for less!

    Desired Settlement
    If they are not going to fix it and make it optional on youtube then they should take it down.

    Business Response
    Hi *******,

    Google+ on desktop is a web based application, so it doesn't actually impact your operating system or have the ability to install malware. To answer the second portion of your question, in the near future you won't need a Google+ profile to make the most of YouTube anymore! You can read more about what's happening here: ************************************************** **************

    Consumer Response
    (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)

    Wise advice for all. Sadly 99% never do, just buy the hype.

    I go with the advice on first link that pops up when consulting Dr. Google, so far so good.

    ======================

    I posted this before with other supplement based MLMs as food for thought. As with other opportunities written about on RS I believe the highest probable outcome is most participants lose money and move on. Some go all in, and the real dummies all in on credit and end up broke. There is however a small but possible risk of running afoul of the law and/or being sued. As always people can take away whatever they like.

    As seen above MLM parent companies do everything in their power to distance themselves legally from the actions of the independent representatives. Too many MLM uplines IMO fail to address the risks their downlines are taking by using their homes and autos for business. Auto and homeowners insurance very likely will not cover business related mishaps unless additional riders or separate polices are purchased. Some affiliate agreements disclose this, most do not. Best to check with a qualified agent.

    I would also consider setting up an LLC or similar to run any business separate from personal assets. I am not an attorney so check a qualified one of those too.

    Supplements have been known to cause serious health problems or kill people from time to time. I do think the risk is very small of being sued, but still a risk in business that should at least be put out there.


    The remaining quoted directly from: Should Personal Trainers Recommend Supplements? - Joe Cannon, MS | Exercise Physiologist which has some additional commentary on the subject worth perusing.


    She was already dealing with high blood pressure. It is very likely that the supplements prescribed by the personal trainer, at the very least, contributed to her stroke, and were prehaps the reason for her stroke.

    After her death:

    the personal trainer
    Crunch Fitness
    Vitamin Shoppe
    and the makers of the 5 dietary supplements

    were collectively sued for $320 million.


    Let me say that again—The PERSONAL TRAINER was sued because of the supplements HE recommended she take.

    You—as a personal trainer—can be sued if you recommend dietary supplements to your clients. This is a fact most people never consider when they decide to become involved with supplements. This can happen whether you are a trainer working at a gym or if you are a self employed personal trainer.



    There is no liability waiver and no personal trainer liability insurance that will protect you if you are sued because of supplements you recommend. In fact, personal trainer liability insurance policies sometimes even say up front that if you are sued because of dietary supplement recommendations, they will not help you.

    This is a very good point right here. If the previous discussion did not give enough food for thought, this certainly should.

    To sum it all up: if you think you can do the fitness programs faithfully and have money to spare, by all means go ahead and use them. But never ever get involved in the MLM part of it.

    Here is one about the financial success of many beachbody mlm recruiters.
