John is a fantastic trainer - he's super motivational and friendly - and keeps you on task both in his workouts and with his out-of-session tips & homework. I've been working with John for about a year and have lost 30 pounds (!) - more than that I'm stronger than I've ever been. Highly recommend him to superpower your fitness routine.

It was great fun training with Jared. My goal was to lose weight and be able to independently workout after training with him. In just 10 workout sessions with Jared I lost over 10lbs, started to look better in shape, can fit into my clothes that I haven’t able to for a while. Since he noted down everything for me, I can certainly workout independently now. It was his motivation and encouragement that has helped me get fitter, stronger, healthier. I would definitely recommend training with him.

This review has been long overdue! We invited Jay as a guest speaker for our Google offsite in Seoul, Korea. The purpose of the first day of the offsite was to inspire and motivate our team. And starting the day off with Jay, did just that... and more! With his thought-provoking speech and meditation exercises, the team came out to be more centered and focused than ever. It was such a great experience to have as a team. I would definitely recommend Jay as an inspirational speaker for any team event. It is a must-do for everybody!

Sue is a dynamic innovator and creative marketing genius. Her mind works so quickly that when she talks you should record what she says or you will miss half of it. She has great marketing intuition and can give you new perspectives on everything you are already doing to grow your business and make more money. I highly recommend her for small business innovation, production, new start ups and all around marketing ideas. She is also really fun to be around while she teaches social media techniques and website optimization. She is a get it done motivator.

    Gaynor truly was more than I could have ever asked for. She really helped me focus, provided honest feedback and motivation to help me figure out what I want to do next in my career. I strongly recommend her to anyone in the Bay area looking for a career coach to receive feedback on your resume, career guidance or help you get to that next level.

    Katie is an amazing coach with a very unique gift that truly shined throughout the entire coaching process. Trust is key in any relationship, but it was specifically critical to me in our coaching relationship because I needed to feel comfortable enough to share my life experiences, challenges and dreams in their rawest form, without feeling judged. Katie is so authentic and open-minded. It was easy for us to establish a relationship of trust and authenticity at our very first session, where she clearly defined her role as the coach, and demonstrated a genuine interest in my own expectations of our relationship. I found that the most powerful part of the coaching process was drawing energy and strength from the proudest and happiest moments of my life, to overcome today's challenges, and silence the inner saboteur that tells me I'm inadequate. Katie's creativity is not only contagious, it's unmatched. She is a divergent thinker and has helped me to discover the universe of possibilities within my reach. Katie has helped me to re-purpose my life with renewed vigor and credence in my ability to break through the glass ceilings I've lived under for so long. She is an absolute gem and I highly recommend her for personal and leadership development coaching.

    Working with Angela has been a very constructive experience. She's a visionary, with the perfect blend of knowledge and presentation skills. This makes her a versatile trainer and a talented Speaker, who loves to engage her audience with real life scenarios and examples making sure her message is loud and clear. I’ve always seen her take pains to respond to questions, even if she needs to research and then email her response, ensuring no attendee is left without a complete answer. She is an Ideal Educator ! She is well versed in the areas of Project Management, Computer System Validation, 21 CFR and the general regulatory arena. Personally, Ms. Bazigos is also an extremely hardworking, dedicated and smart professional.

      Brian Preetz was one of our workshop presenters for our annual citywide youth conference. The conference evaluation came back raving over Brian's workshop. The teens loved his passion and energy while learning new strategies for success. Brian has the ability to capture the attention of all he addresses and leaving them energized and committed to following their dreams. I would strongly recommend him to any organization who is looking for a speaker, presenter and/or workshop facilitator. He has a wealth of information and the ability to tailor it to the audience he is addressing with passion, and enthusiasm. Finally, dealing with Brian was amazing! He carries himself in a professional manner at all times and is explosive when he needs to be. It was a pleasure to work with him. I truly believe he was one of the reasons our youth conference was a great success this year! Thank you! City of San Jose. Youth Commission.
