ACCUMULATING TEAM VOLUME
Once a Coach Business Center (CBC) achieves Active Status and meets the qualifications for the rank of Emerald Coach or higher, the CBC can start accumulating and banking (holding) Team Volume (TV) from its left and right downline legs (regardless of depth) and may become eligible to start earning Team Cycle Bonuses and other bonuses per the Beachbody Coach Compensation Plan.
The status reached when a CBC first becomes Active AND personally sponsors two Coaches, one placed in each of the Coach’s left and right legs, who both become Active. Once a CBC is Activated, it begins to accumulate and bank (hold) Team Volume (TV) from each downline leg for the purpose of earning Team Cycle Bonuses and other bonuses. Once a CBC becomes activated, that CBC retains that status indefinitely.
ACTIVE AND QUALIFIED
The status where a CBC has achieved Active Status AND has fully met the qualifications for a specific Rank level within the Beachbody Compensation Plan within the Bonus Qualification Period.
A CBC achieves Active Status by (a) earning and maintaining a total of 50 or greater Personal Volume (PV) within the Bonus Week; (b) accumulating and maintaining 50 or greater PV within the Bonus Qualification Period from your personal Home Direct orders; or (c) becoming a new Coach by directly responding to for the initial Bonus Week (i.e., solely for the new Coach’s first 35 days).
Active Status must be maintained by continuing to have accumulated 50 PV or greater as the Bonus Qualification Period rolls forward each week.
