In June of 2014, I was approaching age 50 and I weighted 230lbs. I was constantly being pressured by three close friends to try crossfit. My friends literally dragged me to CPP one day and I've been doing crossfit WOD's ever since that particular day. In four months, I lost 25 pounds and added 5 pounds of muscle. I'm currently weighting 210lbs. Crossfit has been a life changing experience and I'm extremely grateful to my friends for helping get in shape. There's also a very good group of coaches & members who constantly motivate you to complete the WOD's. Much thanks again to everyone at CPP!

    My family has known John for more than 8 years, and we have been blessed by his guidance and leadership in many ways. As members of a church under John’s leadership, we experienced wisdom and insight in his teaching, as well as compassion and warmth in his pastoral ministry. During several family crises, John has been present with us. He has helped us to navigate our family through these painful circumstances, and helped us in making difficult life decisions. He challenges us when needed, but always does so with gentleness and humility. John is kind, and he radiates warmth. We would recommend him to anyone looking for guidance through difficult life circumstances, spiritual crisis, grief/ loss of a loved one, or to anyone looking for a life coach or mentor. Our family loves and trusts John, and we could not recommend him more highly.

    Training with Branden was a great experience. He made me do many exercises from bear crawls, push ups, mountain climbers, jump squats, to what ever he can push me to do. I never really did weight training til I worked out with him. He pushed me to a limit I never knew I could reach. He genuinely cares for his clients and believes in you when you don't believe in yourself and that's is a quality that makes him the best! So if your looking for an outstanding life coach/trainer BRANDEN NICHOLSON is your man!!!

    I had a very awesome experience with Shavings during my personal session with her. She covered many areas of my life that I did not even reveal to her personally. I was truly amazed in regards to her compassion towards people. I knew from the start that she was very genuine which is a quality that is rare nowadays. Her quality of work is very professional and you are able to tell right away that she cares and take true pride in her work. I am going to recommend her to any one that is serious about being at a crossroad in their life and not sure what would be their next move. She truly helped me focus my life and put things in perspective.

        Coach Paul Edwards was my daughter's Life Coach for the last 2 years. He assisted my daughter with resolving several issues she was having in high school. Her issues were resolved and resulted with my daughter's self esteem enhanced, grades increased and athletic performance improved. My daughter is currently an athlete at a division 1 school on athletic and academic scholarships. I was impressed with Coach Paul's services because results were present within by the 3rd session. He was there for my daughter whenever she needed him. I would recommend Coach Paul as a Life Coach. He listens to your concerns, addresses them, produce results and keep everything confidential.

        Ginger is the best! I worked with her up until I had to move out of the area but if I could put her on some kind of perminent yoga retainer and take her with me, I would. She can instruct at any level and easily adapts to whatever you need. She is fantastic at guided meditations as well which was my favorite part of her sessions.

          About

          Each human being is a divinely created unique jewel with its own personal gifts based on innate knowledge and acquired knowledge through study and life experience. Clients have told me that they leave sessions with a sense of Peace and increased confidence in themselves and more clarity about how to go on with their lives. I firmly believe that we know our own answers matching our life needs; just sometimes we feel lost, unsure and it can be difficult to see our own misperceptions. I have spent many years studying human behavior and am good at finding patterns that send one into a dead end. I function as a catalyst for others in walking their own path their way. I am known for being gentle, highly respectful of others but also a firm guide. I believe in cultivating integrity, my own and others'. Some resonate with some people, and some with others. My first session is always free, to find out whether we can achieve good results together; it is as if we could hear some people in our hearts and others do not get through. No need to waste anyone's time and/or resources.I absolutely trust in drawing to me the one's I am able to assist.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          What is a career coach?

          If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

          • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
          • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
          • Defining your career goals
          • Creating a plan for job searching
          • Improving networking strategies and skills
          • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
          • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
          • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

          Why is career counseling important?

          Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

          • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
          • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
          • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
          • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
          • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
          • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
          • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

          How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

          A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

          How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

          When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

          What is a career counselor?

          If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

          Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
