Carl Daikeler, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer

Carl Daikeler

Carl is the creator of, which includes top brands like ®, Power 90®, Slim in 6®, ®, and Shakeology®. While there was no shortage of workout DVDs prior to Beachbody®, the combination of Carl's personal pursuit to maintain his own health and fitness, and his perception of the health care crisis due to obesity has redefined in-home fitness. What is now referred to as "The Beachbody Approach" to in-home fitness programs has gained the attention of over 15 million satisfied customers and generated over $1.3 billion in sales. And he's just getting started.

As cofounder, Chairman, and CEO of Beachbody, Carl's sole focus is to help people achieve their goals to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. Through the Team Beachbody® Coach Network, Carl's goal is to create the largest community of health and fitness–related peer support in the world, devoted to a three-pronged approach: (1) Stay active, (2) Improve your nutrition, and (3) Share the experience with people around you.

Having worked for every major infomercial marketer, including beauty juggernaut Guthy-Renker™, Carl has 25 years of extensive product marketing experience. He has learned during his career that the most successful companies aren't those who just sell products, but those who sell products that truly deliver on their promises.

Carl has worked in every aspect of the direct response business, from creating products to advertising, media buying, operations, international distribution, and general management.

His first foray into fitness product development was as cofounder of TelAmerica Media, where he created 8-Minute Abs®. In 1998, he assembled 20 angel investors to launch Product Partners (now Beachbody, LLC) with Jon Congdon, which in 14 years has legitimized fitness products sold on TV and the Internet, and developed hundreds of thousands of fans.

In 2007, Carl launched the first multi-level marketing (MLM) business focused on a holistic approach to fitness and weight loss. With a database of 7 million people, it leverages more than $150 million a year in advertising—another industry first. By putting the rewards for living a healthy lifestyle into the hands of the people who have the most to gain by getting healthy, it added the first scalable financial incentive to the obesity problem, which before now had no end in sight. The MLM has already recruited 70,000 distributors and is charting plans for rapid expansion, including the U.S. Hispanic and international markets.

Carl lives in Los Angeles, with wife Isabelle and two children.


Jon Congdon, President, Beachbody, LLC

Jon Congdon

As cofounder of Beachbody®, Jon is instrumental in shaping the mission of the company and expanding its vision and growth. He's involved in the management of product marketing, e-commerce, and business operations, and oversees media distribution channels to increase the Beachbody market worldwide.

Jon's commitment to creating well-tested, effective products has helped the company build a reputation for quality programs and merchandise that deliver real results. He was even in the pilot group for the ® and P90X® fitness programs, and drives the quarterly internal company-wide fitness challenges as well.

After launching his career at Procter & Gamble™, Jon traveled the world "on walkabout" before teaching science for more than three years in California. In 1995, he launched his own educational consulting firm, but soon felt the call back to the marketing entrepreneur world. He joined leading infomercial marketer Guthy-Renker™ in 1996, where he met Carl Daikeler, and the two collaborated on multiple national marketing campaigns before founding Beachbody in 1998.

In 2005, Jon was a finalist for Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year® award, along with Daikeler. He holds seats on two boards, including his second term on the Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) Board of Directors. In 2009, he testified in Washington, DC, in front of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Affairs as a representative of the marketing industry, supporting the right to use inspirational testimonials in advertising.

Jon graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles, and holds a degree in political science with emphases in American Constitutional Law and International Relations. He is often found on the beaches of Southern California pursuing his favorite sport, beach volleyball.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody in July 2015.


    The actual interview was pleasant and enjoyable. However, the process of scheduling it seemed disorganized. Had to reschedule my interview twice because of scheduling conflicts. The Watson- Glaser test was odd and that process was also chaotic because of scheduling conflicts. However, the HR staff was apologetic with the scheduling issues and overall pleasant to work with.
