A Look Inside Our Program

Our Founder

Frank Macri is the Founder of Thriving Coach Academy. He has trained and mentored over 1,000 individuals looking to start their own coaching practices. He is also the host of the “Life Coaching Secrets” podcast. When he started his own journey as a coach over 8 years ago, Frank did not have any prior business experience or a large online following.

As a teenager, Frank struggled with confidence issues and an insecurity about the way his voice sounded. He had no idea how to become more confident until he picked up a book on psychology. He immediately knew he wanted to pursue a career in mental health.

After graduating from Boston University with a degree in psychology, Frank realized that becoming a therapist would limit him to only treat mental illness. It wasn’t until Frank did some research online that he discovered life coaching as a career path.
He learned that life coaches support successful people seeking to live optimal lives. And life coaches had complete freedom to design their own businesses however they wanted.

Soon after, Frank enrolled in a training to become a Certified Professional Coach… and the rest is history. In the process of becoming a coach, Frank overcame all his confidence issues and even found a passion for public speaking. Frank took his life coaching business from zero to $1M, making him one of the most successful Millennial coaches in the industry. 

At this point, people started to reach out to Frank and ask him how he got into coaching. Frank took everything he knew about the art and business of coaching to design a curriculum unlike any other.

One of the biggest problems Frank noticed in other coaching schools is that they were teaching coaching skills and business strategies that were no longer appropriate given the changes in our society.  He wanted to create a modern coach training program that prepared coaches to keep up with the challenges our world is facing today.

He launched Thriving Coach Academy, and within its first year the International Coach Federation (ICF) recognized it as an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP). Now, the Academy has developed into an incredible community of coaches who are making a difference in the world.

Coaching Mastery Webinars

Our training does not teach you how to become a generic “life coach.” We support you in having specialized skills for different areas within coaching. As a student, you’ll also get access to our weekly Coaching Mastery Webinars, which are group trainings delivered live.

These webinars dive deeper into various different focus areas of coaching: Health & Wellness, Relationship & Couples, Executive & Leadership, Career & Life Purpose, Group and Entrepreneurship.

As a student in our program, you may choose to specialize in one area of coaching and grow a business around that topic. And for that, we give you the tools in these webinars to stand out and succeed. 

One-On-One Mentorship & Peer Coaching

In between our live training modules, you also get weekly Mentor Coaching and Peer Coaching sessions where you will practice your coaching skills and receive supportive feedback.

There is no other program that offers the high level of support we do with this training. You will have everything you need if your goal is to launch a thriving coaching practice.

We are committed to raising the quality of coaching in our industry and have a rigorous standard that we hold our coaches to as they go through our program. When you complete all of our certification requirements, the last step will be to complete a final exam. Upon completion, you are certified as a Certified Professional Coach.

Ongoing Support Post-Certification

After you complete your certification, you will still have access to a growing archive of coaching tools and resources that will keep you equipped with up-to-date material that will ensure your continued success.

You will also have opportunities to stay connected with our coach community so you can continue growing your network.

“I joined having no prior experience in coaching, and I didn’t really know where my coaching skills could lead to. Within a few weeks into the program, I signed on several paying clients. It was so easy because Thriving Coach Academy gave me the tools to know exactly how to find clients!”
