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.

Mr. Ma is an energetic and engaging speaker. He knows how to impact a large audience as if he was speaking to everyone individually. I have had him speak for us 2 times, and I will for sure have him come speak again in the future.

Mo is the man! If you are looking to reach your fitness goals, do a couple sessions with Mo... you wont regret it. Personal progress from working with Mo for a couple weeks: Bench 185 -> 225 Squat 225 -> 285 Deadlift 265 -> 350 Pullups 15 -> 28 Pushups 35 -> 52 You WILL work hard, you WILL push your limits, and you WILL succeed. On a personal note, Mo is a great dude. Genuine, hilarious, and motivating (sometimes even philosophical). I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mo and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to achieve their fitness goals.

Adam is everything you want in a meditation coach. He is a warm, generous spirit. He is funny (hysterical really). He is impressively smart and knowledgeable. It is obvious when working with him or simply talking to him that he was studied diligently, put in years of hard word, learning about and practicing various contemplative traditions. He has lived in monasteries for years, and brings this background to his work. He will impress you in this way. However, it is his humility that you will feel when your session is over. As Maya Angelou said, "...people will never forget how you made them feel." Adam makes you feel welcomed, supported and inspired. I am grateful for his assistance in helping me establish a meditation practice (no small feat). But I am more grateful for our sessions together and the wisdom he's brought to my life. There are more pockets of peace and calm in my life, more places of dignity, less anxiety - little by little, more happiness.

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.

Jeremy is great. He trained me at the boxing gym where I was a member. He had a variety of routines. So I was never bored. He always presented me with a challenge to keep me fit. He was very motivating and had a positive attitude. He was fun to work with. He kept records of my progress and kept track of my eating habits. I would recommend him to everyone to work with if you want results and have fun getting there.

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.

Paul is one of the most authentic speakers I've been able to experience. His story of Go-Giver. Building a culture of excellence is impressive. A first hand witness to what qualities make up true leaders. Paul shares in detail what it takes to build a culture of excellence which leads to record setting results. It is a true pleasure to give Paul Anderson my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. He will prepare, inspire and deliver in a very humble way. - Ed Quinlan, President of Corporate Alliance

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.
