The Corporate Athlete® Course

For decades, the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute has believed that employee engagement is directly linked to employee health. Essentially, that the body is business relevant, from muscle to mind. By studying the needs and behaviors of elite performers, the Institute was able to provide groundbreaking insight on how to prepare business executives to achieve unprecedented performance levels.

The 2 ½-day Corporate Athlete Course is the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute’s premier training offering. Backed by decades of science-based research and results, the course is our ultimate in performance training. Designed to create leading high performance teams and individuals, the Corporate Athlete Course begins by emphasizing the connection between personal purpose and daily behaviors to help ensure alignment. Aligning energy investments with one’s deepest values and beliefs represents a critical component to skillful energy management. Participants in the course are taught how to train like an elite athlete, a Corporate Athlete, to strengthen and align energy across all four dimensions: body, heart, mind, and spirit. This multi-disciplinary approach helps them to become physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused, and completely aligned with whatever mission is most important to them.

Unlike many other executive training programs, the 2 ½-day Corporate Athlete Course is a science-based energy management course designed to strategically help participants become more productive and effective under pressure by managing their energy more effectively. Participants work side-by-side with highly skilled Institute experts who have received specialized training in performance psychology, nutrition and exercise physiology. Their goal: to help Corporate Athletes become more productive and effective under pressure and to achieve it without compromising their personal health and happiness.

The Corporate Athlete Course includes the Institute’s multi-disciplinary human energy management model, a 360° Energy Profile, state-of-the-art testing, fitness and nutrition sessions and planning, and a strategic action plan. One of the fitness sessions of the course features the body weight circuit workout (a.k.a. the “7-minute workout”) designed by Director of Exercise Physiology, Chris Jordan. He co-authored the peer-reviewed article "High-Intensity Circuit Training Using Body Weight" in the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal which led to the Gretchen Reynolds blog article"The Scientific 7-Minute Workout" in the New York Times and generated significant media coverage. The workout has been featured on NPR, ABC News, CNN, Sirius XM’s Doctor Show, The Laura Ingraham Show, Men’s Journal, Women’s Health, Shape, and more.
