Beachbody went public in June 2021 through a three-way merger with connected cycling provider Myx Fitness and Forest Road Acquisition — a blank-check company led by three former Disney executives that includes Shaquille O’Neal as an advisor. 

The combined entity, The Beachbody Company Group, was valued at $2.9 billion following the transaction. 

The merger with Myx Fitness saw The Beachbody Company’s connected fitness segment generate $19.5 million in revenue in Q1 2022, compared to none in 2021. The company delivered approximately 16,000 Myx Fitness bikes during the quarter. 

Looking Ahead 

Beachbody expects revenue in Q2 2022 to take another dip, ranging between $175 million and $185 million, down from the $223 million from the second quarter of 2021.
