The Scoop: Life coach Jay Cataldo became a noteworthy dating expert and motivational speaker after spending decades studying how people’s minds work and what their hearts truly want. He also mastered the art of hypnosis, not as a parlor trick but as a way of instilling deep and lasting changes in people facing personal challenges. Through his private coaching business, Jay has helped clients overcome relationship issues, social anxiety, love sickness, and low self-esteem. He’s now developing a group coaching program so he can impact more lives by teaching men how to date more effectively and confidently.

When Jay was 19 years old, his doctor diagnosed him with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While other guys his age were worrying about parties, girls, and homework, he was battling cancer. Yet he stayed positive and overcame his health challenges by keeping himself focused on moving forward.

That experience helped him grow from a shy, awkward child to a man who knew he could do anything he set his mind to. His first priority as a 20-something young man was to figure out how to get a date. He studied self-help books across all genres and dedicated his energy to personal development. He read about relationships, energy medicine, human psychology, neuro-linguistic programming, and other topics he felt could help him improve and reach his potential. When he discovered hypnosis, everything came into place for him.

Now Jay is a life coach, dating expert, and certified hypnotist with a passion for helping people change their lives. He uses hypnosis to relax his clients and guide them toward new ideas and transformative revelations. His unique approach to coaching has motivated his clients to believe in themselves and their abilities to change their lives.

According to his website, “Jay isn’t the everyday life coach. He addresses challenges at full speed, from all angles. His no-nonsense, holistic approach aligns diet, lifestyle, goals, and mindset to ensure powerful transformations and lasting successes.”

Based in New York City, Jay has established himself as a go-to resource for anyone hoping to find love, lose weight, gain self-confidence, and generally get in a better frame of mind. His techniques alter people’s thoughts and feelings, thus empowering them to take the steps they need to take to get the life they want.

Jay told us he has big plans on the horizon, including a three-month group coaching program designed to put single men on the fast track to a loving relationship. During this intensive course, he will prepare men to up their dating games and feel confident approaching any woman anywhere. He will send out an email blast on his free mailing list when the program goes live and hopes to attract the attention of singles all over the country.

A Fast-Track Program Supports & Informs Men

Jay’s new program teaches participants everything he has learned over the last 20 years about dating dynamics, seduction, and long-term relationships. He will deliver life-changing lessons in an easy-to-understand format and accelerate men’s journey from uncertainty to triumph. He told us the goal of his fast-track program is to save men time and energy in the dating world by showing them how they can get the results they desire in a short period of time.

As a young man, Jay learned his dating lessons the hard way before becoming known as the Relationship Ninja. He doesn’t want others to have to take so long to figure out how to talk to women and feel confident on dates, so he is working on giving singles a shortcut to romantic success.

His program will combine weekly video lessons and weekly coaching sessions conducted over webcam. These lessons will outline important concepts and strategies that can empower men in the dating scene. Jay will address general issues in pre-recorded videos and then dive into specifics in one-on-one strategy sessions with his clients.

“They also get access to me in between sessions so they can get the help they need on the fly,” Jay said. “This is hands down the fastest way to learn this material with the least amount of confusion and frustration.”

Any man encountering dating or relationship challenges can sign up for this course and receive clear directions and guidance. The course will cover online dating, communication, flirtation, and the nuances of dating from how to make an introduction to when to commit to a relationship.

Jay minimizes the stress of dating by offering clarity and inspiration in a supportive group program. His positivity has helped countless people in the dating scene, and he plans to continue working with singles on important issues to bring more love into the world.

“My course will cover all the major aspects of the dating game,” he told us, “including the secrets to maintaining amazing relationships for a lifetime.”

Inspiring Clients to Achieve the Relationship of Their Dreams

Jay got into the life coaching business to change people lives, and he isn’t shy about promoting the transformational power of his coaching products. At the top of his website, Jay defines his purpose as “bridging the gap between the attainable and the impossible.” This bold motto is backed by customer testimonials, which are brimming with stories of people finding love, losing weight, and becoming more confident and successful in all aspects of life.

Peter Frumenti lost over 200 pounds after reading Jay’s book and taking his coaching courses. “I realized after working with you that what I needed was not someone else to fulfill my life,” he said, “but my own inner strength, confidence, and happiness. It was a much greater gift than anything I thought I wanted when we started.”

“As cliché as it sounds, coaching with Jay has changed my life.” — Melissa G., a client from Sydney, Australia

Melissa G. said she saw dramatic changes in her life after 12 weeks of working with Jay. “Things I have talked about doing for years have actually become my reality,” she said. “The coaching process is far from effortless, but the results have rocked my world and been extraordinarily rewarding.”

“I really can’t overstate how valuable my time has been with Jay,” said John, an NYC resident who honed his dating skills over the course of a few weeks. He dated multiple women, received a promotion at work, ran and finished a marathon, and got into a top-five MBA program thanks to Jay’s encouragement and advice. “I don’t know if there’s a price that I can put on the amount of growth I’ve experienced and on the skills that he’s taught me,” John said.

“Jay is the real deal,” concludes Steve Covino, the host of “The Covino and Rich Show” on Sirius and XM radio. “I’ve interviewed many relationship experts, but Jay is the only person I turn to when I need advice about my own relationships.”

Jay Compiles Decades of Knowledge in a Simple Format

Jay has overcome incredible obstacles in his life, and he has now dedicated himself to helping others realize that they can achieve their dreams if they believe in themselves. With group programs and one-on-one coaching, this life coach challenges the notion of what’s possible and expands the minds of his clients in intensive sessions.

Over the years, Jay has seen his clients make a complete 180 in how they approach the world, and he never gets tired of hearing about their successes in their relationships, careers, and life.

“Jay is an awesome guy with an extraordinary story. He wasn’t always successful, confident, outgoing,” said Steve P. in a client review. “If you’re visiting his site or researching him, it’s because something’s not right and you want to make it better. Jay can relate and knows what that’s like because he’s been through it. But he also knows how to overcome it. And better yet, he’s a great teacher.”
