Meet Jodi Dunell

I am a Health & Wellness Coach, Life Coach, Fitness Instructor, as well as a wife and a mother to three independent teenagers.

My passion is helping people connect to their inner strength and confidence so that they can embrace life and its challenges with confidence, passion and abundance.

Health – Mind & Body, is the foundation to enjoying relationships and creating a life full of love, happiness and fulfilment.

Our Mind is an integral ingredient to good health.

Jumpt is all about helping people live their life with passion and vitality. And that begins with feeling good about ourselves, nurturing ourselves with food, exercise and healthy self-talk.

I work with people to help them get clarity around what is really important to them. I help them become aware of unresourceful habits, judgements and thinking so that they can tap into their inner strength and wisdom. Here is where change really begins.


Jodi Dunell

I understand what it feels like to:

  • Be Overweight
  • Lack Energy & Vitality
  • Be so tired that getting through the day is a challenge
  • Lack self esteem
  • Be super hard and critical of yourself
  • Have no idea of what you really want to do with your life
  • Be self-conscious and worried about what people think.

Where My Journey Began

After coming home from the USA as an exchange student I found myself indulging in bad eating habits that saw me gain some weight. I felt miserable and disgusted with myself every time I ate food that I promised myself not to eat. I was in constant battle with myself for many years.

I lost the weight when I was diagnosed with Chron’s Disease. Fortunately, I was able to recover quickly once diagnosed and changed some of my eating habits that kept the weight off.

A few years later I was living a busy life. Married, working in Melbourne, commuting an hour and a half each way and studying 4 nights a week for an Associate Diploma in Business Accounting. All was going well until I was struck down with a virus that later developed into Chronic Fatigue.

This was a challenging time for me as there is no specific test or course of action to take for a cure. Constant fatigue, feeling like I had not slept for days, difficulty at work, memory loss, brain fog and cold and flu symptoms that would not go away; achy muscles, blocked nose, itchy throat & ears.

I was lucky to find a great GP who was also into alternative medicine who helped me overhaul my diet and introduced the use of vitamins. This is where I became interested in the role food plays in our general wellbeing. Within 6 months I was a different person and my husband & I were able to travel overseas for 3 months. My time with Chronic Fatigue, although mild compared to some, has taught me to appreciate and be grateful for good health & fitness.

Without good health – mind & body, life cannot be enjoyed to its fullest.

Health & Fitness is the foundation to enjoying everything in life. Work, family, kids, partners, friends, holidays & travel. Good health, feeling fit, having energy and feeling good about yourself is what allows you to have more meaningful relationships, be social with friends, enjoy work and be inspired
to follow your dreams.
Without good health – Mind & Body, everything becomes hard, drained, overwhelmed, slow and an effort. This can lead to low self-worth, lack of motivation and depression. I know because I have been there.

I realised that our mindset and our self-talk is a major contributor to how we feel, how we interact with others, the decisions we make and the way we respond to situations – good or bad.

When we feel good on the inside, we are more confident and adventurous in the choices we make.

Realising this, combined with a passion to help others, I am now on a journey of continual self-development and study of functional exercise and human behaviour.

What I Do

I work with you on a one to one basis where I help you become aware of your language, your beliefs and values. I provide a space for you to learn, grow and connect to your inner confidence and passion.
I will give you the time and space to reflect, explore and grow. I will challenge you, support you and ask you questions that will give you a new way to view your world around you. You will feel more present, be more confident and centred, embrace challenges and live your life with more abundance.

My fitness background also allows me to offer advice on diet and exercise. Making small shifts in beliefs and values will result in effortless decisions with diet and exercise.

If you are local, you can join one of my many group exercise classes. These are for all fitness levels and designed to be challenging, fun and safe. Most of us are not out to break Olympic records – it’s about improving and maintaining strength and fitness to feel good and enjoy any leisure activities we want to experience with friends and family. Most importantly its about fun, feeling included in a group and making friends.

If you are sick of:

  • Yoyo dieting
  • Not following through on promises to yourself
  • Feeling sluggish, tired or lazy
  • Feeling like you are run off your feet
  • Not having enough time in the day
  • A job that brings you stress and little joy
  • Being grumpy and snappy to you family
  • Overwhelmed and anxiety

Then you are ready for a change, to take action and to really enjoy your life.

You are ready for:

  • A balanced relationship with food
  • Enjoyable exercise that leaves you feeling energised
  • Feeling of Vitality and enthusiasm to tackle each day
  • Clarity on your next career move
  • Feeling Calm in the face of chaos
  • Embracing challenges with confidence
  • Feeling happy and confident with your decisions
  • Backing yourself
I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you to embrace life with confidence, purpose and passion.
