Diane is the best! She is highly motivating and keeps me interested in losing weight and lead a healthy life
Junior is an exceptional trainer and coach. I've seen massive results in the time that I've worked with him. Not only is he extremely knowledgable about strength, conditioning, and sport-specific training, he is also very knowledgable about nutrition and supplements. Junior will motivate you to keep going when you want to quit, and will be your mentor, guide, and teacher to help you reach goals you never thought possible. I highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about hiring a trainer or coach to help them get to the next level.
Throughout my career public speaking has been a task that has loomed over me like a dark cloud, often causing me physical distress. I have always watched politicians, reporters, and others speak and have envied the way they are so natural in their communication. It is a skill I have always wanted to improve upon both to enhance my career but mainly to eliminate this unnecessary source of anxiety and distress. I was recently asked to give a talk at my former graduate schools yearly career day. I agreed immediately, of course, and was so honored that I would be considered for this role. Shortly after I began to panic. After weeks of sleepless nights I decided that instead of doing what I always do and worrying about it until it is over, I would take this opportunity to seek out a public speaking coach. I was introduced to Andre Carter on a Thumbtack request I sent out. I had a very short timeline and was afraid it would limit my chances of hiring anyone. I was also unsure about how a Skype based coaching would work. These concerns were all quickly alleviated. Andre responded to my request within 24 hours and gave me an overview of his services. He first wanted to talk to me on the phone, assess my goals, and give me a detailed training plan and quote. He even gave me a few tips on our first call. After my initial conversation with Andre I was calmer than I had been in months. I trusted him completely to take me a level where I was confident about this speech. I immediately accepted his proposal and we got right to business. After our initial session I volunteered to practice in front of my family. I dont who was more surprised! After just that first lesson I experienced something I have never felt before, actual excitement about giving a speech! Having just completed our third and final session, I am intentionally writing this review two days before my actual speech. I am so confident in what Andre has taught me that I dont even need to wait to see how it goes, I know I am going to blow everyone away. To say that I highly recommend Andre Carter for his speaker coaching skills does not even do him justice. If you have ever even considered improving your communications skills, hiring Andre is the best investment you could ever make towards your future. Thank you, Andre! I look forward to working with you again! Katie Marshell
Debra is an excellent coach, communicator and writer who shared her talents with me and many others during a webinar to take each of us to new levels in our businesses. She's intuitive and a great business woman. She thinks outside of the box and that's what I needed!
I was signed up by a friend to do a 21 day challenge with Ricky and went into this thinking it was going to be like other trainers I've had in the past: they work at a gym, sell you a plan and schedule you in to do random exercises, then out the door you go so they can get to the next client. This is not what 108 Athletics is about! First of all, I was impressed with Ricky's innate desire to want to help people. His life experiences have molded him into a person who really wants to you become the best you can be - both mentally and physically. You never get the impression that you are just another cog in the wheel. He takes time with each person as if they are the only client he has. You never feel rushed off and your phone calls/emails as always addressed promptly. Part of his coaching technique is that every day we'd get an email of support, encouragement and ideas on how to change negative thinking, or offer tips on eating better. The workouts are not about pushing you to the point of death. (Thank God, because I would have walked out. I'm not in the frame of mind right now.) His workouts consist of using your body as resistance, making it easier on the joints and safer all-around. We worked on increasing flexibility and strength. I would sometimes leave thinking I didn't do much, but came home sweaty and my muscles let me know for a few days that they were worked! I can honestly say that I've never had a "getting in shape" experience quite like this one. In two weeks I've lost 5 pounds. This may not seem like much, but I didn't have to alter my diet too drastically. I cut out refined sugar, have limited my carbs and cut down on the fats. I eat about 5-6 small meals a day, still eat the things I like, without having cravings or feeling as though I'm being denied much. I also have more energy. My mindset is that this weight didn't come on overnight and to loose it safely and keep it off will not happen overnight either. Ricky's guidelines for eating are sensible. It's not a "diet". It's a reorienting of your way of eating that can easily morph into new lifestyle. I didn't follow the meal plan he gives us completely to the "T", and realize that others who have, have lost even more weight than me. Because I have a big family, and feed seven each day, I had to improvise to accommodate them. I guess this is another "kudo" - even if you improvise, you can still lose weight! As my rating indicates, 108 Athletics deserves every one of those five stars! Thank you, Ricky, and I look forward to continuing past my 21 days to becoming the new me!
Tiamo, thank you for your AMAZING Keynote Concert at my live event! You helped magnify the impact beyond measure! Your songs, stories, and motivational speaking deeply connected with my audience and transcended the events message in a way that was so inspiring for everyone! Plus, the original custom song that you wrote, produced, and performed live was such a thrilling surprise for the participants and an unforgettable highlight from the event! Thank you Tiamo for helping us create such a unique experience. I can't wait to have you back again!
Mat Shaffer I've had the pleasure of hearing Mat speak on several occasions in Ocean Beach and he is truly a gifted speaker. Mat is relatable, funny and really moves his audiences to action. He dubs himself as a recovering attorney, and has quite an interesting back story. I highly recommend Mat, 5 out of 5 stars….you will not be disappointed! Sincerely, Chuck Hardwick Organizer OBNetworking.com
Patrick truly wants to inspire and encourage others to seek and reach their true potential whether it is in their work or daily lives. He is an engaging speaker that keeps you on the edge of your seat to hear and see what will come next. Patrick is one of the most sincere individuals I have ever met. His work is to inspire others, yet he has this amazing way of finding the good and inspiration from those around him; he is like a sponge eager to learn something new and interesting everyday regardless of where he is or who is with. I have only had the pleasure of having him on the campus where I work two times, yet, I consider Patrick a friend... a friend that i am happy to have. He is the real deal! I hope he never retires from being a motivational speaker; he has an outstanding outlook on life and great messages to share. BBeasley Georgia
Ari is an exceptional personal trainer. He was able to accommodate my busy schedule and train me in the comfort of my own home, which was very important as a busy working mom.

Lisa Gordon is an extremely gifted and passionate public speaker. Lisa exudes enormous positivity and her presentations are engaging, creative and very relatable.
David was brought in to provide an out of the box perspective on motivation and self relience. We could not have been more pleased with how his presentation was received. Moreover, David stayed long after the event had concluded to give deeper with a few people who wanted more. We cannot wait to have him back.
Caliph is a phenomenal mentor coach. From the first day we met, he was able to see me for who I really am and help me connect my true passion for business. He brought out my own unique qualities to help me find my own style and approach to my life. He is a masterful coach and also helped me develop the skills I needed to attack my goals. He gave me one of the greatest gifts I have ever received, which was to see my dream of being having my own business to become a reality. I believe that his masterful coaching, intuition, and practical experience can help anyone who desires to go after their dream and make it a reality as well.
We were very pleased with the this speaker... almost a show really. My boss was not very excited a first and I had to convince her this would work at our conference. The feedback I recieved afterwards was tremendous. This was definitely one of the highlights of our event.
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.
Paulina is an incredible life coach! Friendly, caring and motivated! Extremely in tune with her clients needs and able to quickly promote a path to sucesss.
Jaquel Pitts spoke at our annual conference. His speech was amazing. He was in foster care for 17 years. He informed our attendees that he didn't discover who his father was until he reached the age of 19. Some members in the audience were crying. After his presentation our members walked away inspired being aware that anything is possible. I would definitely recommend his services as the quality of his services are extremely exceptional.
Joseph De Vico has spoken several times to my graduate social work class about mental health policy. It is clear from his presentations that he has excellent grasp of policy and is able to link it back to clinical practice. He is an articulate presenter whose passion for the subject and commitment to persons with mental illness is manifest. Each time he speaks, the students are highly engaged and express gratitude that he was invited to address the class. Here are two unsolicited comments from students who emailed me to comment on this lecture: "I wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed today's guest speaker. It is this kind of material that reminds me exactly why I decided to enter the field of social work, and today's class was one of the most interesting I've experienced." Another student wrote," I found Joseph De Vico to be an incredibly insightful and informative speaker. Thank you for arranging the lecture. I'm grateful to have heard his perspective on treatment of folks dealing with serious mental illness in our community. I appreciated the context he provided to explain what brought us to our current policy and services today. "

"This was the best evening I've experienced and by far, you're the best speaker we have had at our meeting. You were knowledgeable and organized in the presentation, but so warm and genuine in the delivery of your message it made all the difference. Your program has something for everyone and I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to hear you and meet you. I always felt I had some of the tools you describe in SMART but was blown-away by what I've been missing; by how you described it and how you actually do it! I came away with "I get it". So many other motivational programs I've heard or purchased don't really describe what they do themselves, just what we should do. I've gone home with tapes and journals and said the next day, "huh?". You stand apart in every aspect of what you do." - Patt Davis "I have been going to the Wow meetings for about two years now. Of all the speakers we have had, you were by far the best. I have had the same thoughts that you talked about and felt. Thank you for putting it a book so I can really have the 5 step SMART plan in front of me. The way your book is laid out is just great. Can't wait to start reading it. I wish more women knew about how they can change the way they think and feel. Now you have to write one for men so we can all change together." - Karen Ellinwood "I have heard a lot of speakers and can say that you are the best and the most inspiring one that I have ever heard. You sure are amazing. Thank you so much." - Laurie "I just wanted to say "thank you" for the delightful talk you gave at our BLO luncheon today, which many of our members called the best program ever. I have had so many positive comments that I can't even begin to count them! We were all inspired and our spirits were renewed and revived." - Sheri Benton
