It's time to Level Up

JRNI Coaching is an online 20-week life coach certification for wellness professionals who are inspired to bring mind and body together and help their clients in a whole new way.

Bring Body + Mind Together in a Whole New Way

 John Kim and Noelle Cordeaux

You’re deeply ingrained in the world of health and fitness, helping your clients connect with their bodies and make progress with their physical goals. 

You believe firmly in the mind-body connection and while you’re well-trained in how to help clients with the body, you want more training in helping people progress mentally, achieve goals and get unstuck. 

You’re already having informal coaching conversations everyday, and you know there’s an opportunity to go deeper with your clients, whether after a Crossfit or yoga class, or during a Reiki session. You want to be able to offer more but you’re not yet equipped with the skills you need to feel confident in offering coaching services.

"I love my clients. I want to bring more to the table. I want to address the mind, not just the body."

...I'm limited in what I can offer and need more training...

...I know I could make a bigger impact with my clients but I'm not sure how to do it...

...I want to coach holistically, not just in the realm of the physical...

What if there was a different way to make a bigger impact?

Irreverent Gamechangers

We get asked a lot about that word "irreverent," and what it means to the Catalyst Coaching Intensive. It represents the kind of vibrant, live-out-loud spirit we embody as an organization and look for in our potential coaches.

We seek to dismantle the systems that hold each of us back unfairly.
We create opportunities for everyone to succeed.

We leave the status quo behind.
We commit to creating a life we truly love.

We won't be bound by the expectations that were set for us before we were even born.  
We write our own roadmaps and make our own future.

We are hungry for more and commit to living life to the fullest, whatever that looks like for each of us.

The Catalyst Coaching Intensive is for those who are tired of the system.
It’s for genuine gamechangers who have a strong desire to create lasting change in the lives of others and are determined to succeed on their own terms.

Why should I add Coaching to my skill set, as a Wellness Professional?

As a wellness professional, you're already either coaching or having informal coaching conversations. Gain the skills and confidence you need to formalize your work, and add it to your repetoire of valuable skills. Coaching can help take you further in your career, faster than you thought possible.

Are there other Yoga / Reiki / Fitness Coaches in the program?

Yes! We have people from all walks of life who have happily added coaching to their skillset and are glad they did it. From yoga instructors to crossfit coaches, massage therapists to energy healers, we glady welcome and celebrate your unique vision of how wellness and coaching can integrate successfully. What's more, we're here to help you figure out how it can be done. You don't have to do it alone!

What are the advantages of training with JRNI?

JRNI offers science-backed, evidence-based life coach training that is deeply rooted in positive psychology. Our program is entirely online and lasts 20 weeks, which includes live weekly coach training, exposure to a wide variety of methods and techniques, and business development.

We are not just a training program but a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive community of coaches who are committed to bettering ourselves and the world. Your journey doesn’t end when your training does, JRNI offers lifetime support, live events, real world experience and a solid foundational community to uplift and support you as you reach your own goals.  

We often tell people that this isn’t a life coaching program, it’s a life changing program. We say this because we’ve seen it time and time again and we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself.

Do I have what it takes to become a coach?

A great coach is someone who is passionate about helping others, inspired by the wide breadth of human possibility, and able to help others stoke the potential within themselves. Good coaches are devoted to the growth of their clients and to always learning and growing. We believe that a successful coach can come from almost any background.

People bring their whole selves to coaching -- their story, their history, their experiences, unique talents and beliefs -- and create a practice that is as unique as they are. Our graduates also have come from all different backgrounds -- therapists, executives, managers, HR professionals, fitness experts, influencers, stay at home dads, mothers looking to re-enter the workforce, nurses, yoga instructors and hundreds more.

The thing our people have in common is a strong desire to improve themselves and a calling to do this work. They often tell us that they’ve been coaching informally and having these conversations for years, and now want to take it to the next level with professional training and support.

If you feel the pull to do this, then you are probably in the right place! Let’s schedule a call to talk more about your goals and how JRNI can help you.

Is this program Certified by the International Coaching Federation?

Yes! Our program is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the only globally recognized, independent credentialing program for coach practitioners, via their CCE program (Continuing Coach Education). When you graduate from our program you will be awarded 36 CCE credits towards ICF certification or renewal. The ICF is a non-profit, professional organization and their mission is to build, support and preserve the integrity of the coaching profession.

That being said, coaching is an emerging and unregulated field. There are quite a few organizations who have set up very good professional standards (that we teach and adhere to) and many organizations that certify coaches in a specific technique or school of thought. There are athletic coaches, executive coaches, health coaches, life coaches and so many more.

At JRNI we train life coaches to work and build practices in the wellness marketplace. We certify that all of our coaches have been trained in our evidence-based technique and are theoretically, relationally and ethically qualified to work as coaches. Our training is grounded in adaptive therapeutic change technique, goal setting theory, the science of positive psychology, and much more. Beyond theory you will learn everything you need to know to coach, from theories and concepts to branding and marketing.

How does JRNI define life coaching?

Life coaching is a partnership between a coach and a client that moves the client forward to become the best version of him or herself through the application of motivation, accountability, planning, troubleshooting and support.
