My First Fitness Nutrition Review

first fitness nutrition

Welcome to my First Fitness Nutrition review.

When it comes to homebased business opportunities the one people are typically presented with is an MLM business opportunity.

And with that being said the companies that are the most prevalent are companies that are in the health and wellness market. And it’s no surprise that they are. Health and wellness is a huge market with people spending billions of dollars each year.

So, it’s no surprise so many people want to get a piece of that pie. But here’s the thing, MLM is not for everyone and every MLM company has a different business opportunity sales pitch.

Every company has their own product line and claim their business opportunity is better than the next guys. And that’s why you should consider working with them over everyone else.

Well First Fitness Nutrition is no different. They have their own products and they have a business opportunity available for you.

Fair enough, let’s see what they have to offer.

Now before we get into this. You need to know I’m simply here to show you the pros and cons of First Fitness Nutrition and give you my personal opinion. What you decide to do after reading my review is up to you.

And with that said, let me first say, good on you for taking the time to do your own research before getting involved with any business opportunity. That alone tells me your serious about finding a legitimate way to make money online.

Alright, let’s see what First Fitness Nutrition is all about.

Ok, So Who Is First Fitness Nutrition?

First fitness nutrition, which is also known as FFN is a direct sales (mlm) company in the health and wellness market and is based in Frisco, Texas.

The company was founded back in 1989 by Lee Causey and Nigel Branson. Their products include supplements, weight loss, cleanses, CBD hemp oil, skin care, energy and fitness.

Lee Causey founder of FFN created the world’s first diet milkshake and has since formulated over 300 cleansing, weight loss, and wellness products.

And as for Nigel Branson who is the President & Co-Founder of FFN, along with Lee Causey he helped launch their flagship product called Reneú. Which is the first all in one body and colon cleanse.

These guys have been at the helm of this company for over 30 years, which is very impressive since many MLM companies don’t make it past 5 years.

But Lee and Nigel are not alone when it comes to the success of this company. They have a very experienced and distinguished medical adviser board that is comprised of scientists, doctors, and health care professionals who are behind the research and development for new products.

Ok, from what I see there is nothing that stands out when it comes to the health and wellness products MLM companies’ market. You have a 100 other competing companies selling similar products.

And the other thing I see is like all health and wellness products none of them have been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

And because of that FFN like all other MLM companies that market products like these do not have to prove the products work are even safe to use before bringing their products to market.

And that’s why it’s hard to measure health products. Everyone is going to have a different result when taking products like these. Some people will see results. While others will see no results.

Now with that said. You are selling a consumable product. So, if your customers see results you can build up a good client base that buys from you on a regular basis.

But remember as I mentioned you are competing with other MLM companies selling similar products. And don’t forget about regular retail channels such as health food stores and online sources like Amazon.

Which raise another thing to keep in mind.

People are very price conscious. People want the best bang for their buck. So, if people can find a similar product offering the same results many may opt to buy the lesser priced product.

So, it will be up to you to show your potential customer the advantages of buying your products over your competition.

Remember competition is good, you just need to do some price comparing to see what you’re up against. But not only compare prices be sure to compare the ingredients too.

So, How Much Is It To Get Started With First Fitness Nutrition?

To become a team member of FFN you need to buy a Team Member Kit. This is going to cost you $39.00. This kit includes:

  • 1-Year FFN Membership
  • FFN Team Member website
  • Access to Office2Office
  • Sample of marketing materials

Now it’s not required to buy products to become a team member. But if you’re going to be doing this you need to know and understand the products for yourself. So, for your first order you do get at a discount. And you have options as to the value packs you can buy.

You can save from 20% to 40% on your first order depending on the value pack you buy.

  • 20% Value Pak – Choose up to $190 of products for only $149
  • 25% Value Pak – Choose up to $375 of products for only $279
  • 30% Value Pak – Choose up to $690 of products for only $549
  • 40% Value Pak – Choose up to $1,400 of products for only $1,095

If decide not to buy a value pack you can buy individual products from their catalogue.

How Do You Make Money With First Fitness Nutrition?

As with most MLM companies you can make money in 2 ways. First is by selling the products to friends, family and people you meet. You’ll be buying products at wholesale you then sell them for retail and you keep the difference between the two. That’s your profit.

Next is by building your business. And the way you do that is by recruiting people into your business (downline). And by doing so you can become eligible for the bonuses available within their compensation plan by meeting the qualifications for each bonus.

Also, to stay active you need to have an auto shipment of at least $100 or a personal volume of $150 each month.

Here’s a quick overview of their compensation plan.

Retail Profit – Earn 20% – 40% profit on product sales to customers.

VIP Smart Ship Bonus – Earn 10% – 30% on your personal VIP Customer’s Smart Ship orders.

VIP Power Bonus – Earn up to $1,500 on your Team’s VIP Customer’s Smart Ship orders.

Fast Start Bonuses – Earn $30 – $250 when you enroll/upgrade new Team Members with Value Paks.

Wholesale Profit – Earn up to 20% profit on Team Members’ product purchases in your Personal Group.

Royalty Bonuses – Earn up to 6% Royalty Bonuses on your downline Directors.

Leadership Bonuses – Presidentials and above can earn 1% to 2.25% in Leadership Bonuses.

Advancement Bonuses – Earn $250 – $10,000 in bonuses for advancing in rank.

Mercedes Car Bonus – Earn $600 – $1,200 per month towards a new Mercedes-Benz.

So, Can You Expect To Make Money With First Fitness Nutrition?

As with any MLM business there is the opportunity to make money. But it’s all going to depend on you and your skills. And as there is no income disclosure statement available you have no hard data in which to make a solid decision.

So, we don’t know what percentage of people involved with FFN who are actually making a significant income.

But I can tell you even without an income disclosure statement the odds will be stacked against you if you do not have the sales and network marketing skills required to make this business work.

Now many people think they can build a successful MLM business. But many people soon discover it’s not as easy as people make it out to be. And because of that the reality is you have a less than 1% change of making this business viable.

I’m not here to throw water on your dreams. I just want you to be aware of what you’re getting involved with and doing so with your eyes wide open.

I suggest before making any final decision that you do more research beyond my review.

Here’s some great resources for you.

What Are People Saying About First Fitness Nutrition?

I did some poking around to see if I could find some reviews of actual customers and not distributors of First Fitness Nutrition products.

And I found verified customer reviews about their products on a website called supplementrelief.com which sells their products. And all the reviews had nothing to say but good things.

Ok, that’s a start. But I need more then that.

So, I did some more digging and I found a site called dietspotlight.com. And I found more reviews but this time there was both positive and negative reviews. For me that’s a more realistic view of the products and the company then what I found at supplementrelief.com

I suggest you do your own research as well. Keep in mind a company cannot please everyone. But by seeing what others say can give you a better sense of the company and its products.

The smart thing to do before you go all in with this business is to buy the products that interest you most and give them a try and document your results.

Whether you get results or not. It definitely puts you in a much better position to make an informed decision about this opportunity.

The Upside Of First Fitness Nutrition

#1) Stability

The company has been in business for over 3 decades. That doesn’t happen without knowing what you’re doing and building trust with your customers and distributors.

#2) True Opportunity

There is a legit business opportunity being offered by FFN.

#3) Low Startup Cost

The cost to get your business up and running is pretty low. At a bare minimum you can become a team member for $39.00.

#4) Replicated Website

As part of your team member kit, you are given a replicated website where you can direct all your customers and potential new team members to.

What I Didn’t Like About First Fitness Nutrition

#1) Lots Of Competition

The health and wellness market has a ton of competition. Not only from other MLM companies which there are hundreds within this market. You have regular marketing channels such has health food stores and online portals such as Amazon.

#2) Low Success Rate

History and plenty of studies have shown that people who get involved in MLM have less than a 1% chance of making any real significant money. And by significant, I mean making a full time income.

#3) Monthly Sales Quota

In order to stay as an active distributor, you need a $100 minimum auto shipment product order. Or $150 in personal volume each month.

This can put a lot of pressure on a new distributor because if your business is not making money, this money is coming out of your own pocket each month.

#4) No Income Disclosure Statement

While some other MLM companies do provide and income disclosure statement. FFN is not obligated to do the same. The problem with that is you cannot make an informed decision about this opportunity because you have no hard income data in which to make a decision.

You have no idea what the average yearly earnings are for their distributors. Which means you have no way of knowing if people are actually making any significant money with this business.

#5) Recruitment Is Need To Build Your Business

Yes, you can make money just retailing their products.

But if you want to earn those bonuses that come with rank advancements in their compensation plan. You’ll need to be constantly recruiting people into your business.

And this never stops. And that’s because over 50% of the people that you recruit will quit within the first year of joining your business.

My Final Opinion Of First Fitness Nutrition

FFN is an established and stable company with a legit homebased business opportunity.

The problem I have with this opportunity is first and foremost it’s a MLM company and with that comes all these unnecessary requirements in order for you to be successful. You shouldn’t have to jump through all the hoops they put in front of you just to make money.

And another thing that I don’t think many people realize is that you don’t own or control 100% of your business. You’re using all their assets. Which means your company is at risk every day.

I don’t care how you decide to make money online. You have to be 100% in control and ownership of your company. You NEVER want to put control of your business in the hands of others. And with MLM that’s what you’re doing.

Now despite these concerns people join MLM every day. And if you’re comfortable with your business controlled by FFN and you have the network marketing and sales skills needed to make this business work. And you like what FFN is offering then sure go for it and I wish you nothing but success.

But on the other hand, if having to jump through all these hoops with an MLM company and a less than 1% chance of making any real significant money doesn’t make sense to you, you’re not alone.

The thing is you don’t have to join an MLM to build a wildly successful online business.

You can do that by using the Affiliate Marketing business model. As an affiliate marketer first and foremost you are in 100% control and ownership of your business.

Plus, you’ll never need to recruit anyone to build your business. Nor do you have to become a direct salesperson to build your business.

I was like you many, many years ago. I tried MLM and worked my business for over a year and never made any real money. Certainly not the money the person who recruited me said I could make.

So, after busting my ass for over a year in MLM I quit. Best thing that could have ever happened to me. Because that’s when I got into affiliate marketing.

And since 2005 I have been making a full time income as an online affiliate marketer.

Now will affiliate marketing be your path for making money online? I have no idea. But what I do know is seeing how to build a successful online business as an affiliate marketer only makes sense. This way you can decide if affiliate marketing is going to work for you.

And the best resource I can point you towards for learning how to build a wildly successful affiliate marketing business is Wealthy Affiliate.

They have the tools, the resources, the personal one-on-one support and of course all the training you need to build your business. And you can see everything they have available to you all for free.
