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.

I am a professional at a Fortune 500 company with over 15 years of experience. I was tasked with delivering a highly financial and numbers heavy presentation to a non-finance business audience of over 60 people. I worked with Arjun on honing my presentation skills with a particular emphasis on delivery and captivating my audience. Arjun did a phenomenal job in helping me gear up for the big day! Arjun is a talented speech coach. His coaching approach is thoughtful and he brings both intellect and emotional intelligence to the table. He is patient and perceptive and asks the right questions. Working with Arjun really helped me "own" the material and deliver my message in a compelling way. I highly recommend Arjun and would not hesitate to work with him again.

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.

    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.

    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!

    Very engaging speaker. If you are able to hear him speak you will be better for it. He delivers a message that is good for all. He encouraged all of our students and staff to be the best that we can be. I personally felt more peaceful after hearing him speak. I now remember to "walk with beauty" in all directions. He also brought his personal instruments with him. The students all listened and were respectful to him. You know he is a good speaker if he can keep a gym full of middle schoolers listening... And he did. :)

    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.

    I started out with just a couple of in-person sessions. I liked the custom program that included stretches and low-impact strength training. Playlists were fun to dance to also, and it didn't feel like working out. Then I rolled into the 12 Week online program. The app is super easy to use and convenient. Mirella responds to my every question quickly and tweaks my plan for me, as needed. Thanks for helping me get back on track and pushing me when I needed some extra motivation ;)

    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.
