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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

      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.

        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

        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.

        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 ;)

I've also used other services she provides ie; life coaching and financial advice. she motivated me to purchase my first home. Thank you Charlotte so much!!!
