I don't even know where to begin. Prior to meeting Michelle, I had no idea what a life coach was. All I knew was that I was stuck and I needed a bit more guidance in my life and that's when my cousin recommended her to me. Michelle is beyond amazing. When I first met her she gave me her book and her workbook. These tools, along with her, helped me through my whole process. I was able to self reflect more and change my way of thinking. She's helped me have courage to do some of the scariest things I could never imagine myself doing. She's helped better direct my life to where I want to go and open to my eyes to my own truths. She has a passsion for what she does and it truly shows in her work. There's never any judgment and she's able to share her toughest experiences . Michelle has an amazing heart and only has the best intentions. I admire her strength the most. I'm extremely grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her as a life coach.
About 4 months ago, I decided I wanted coaching because I was going through several changes in my life. I felt overwhelmed by the work, I had no confidence in myself to make any decisions, and anxious about the future. I knew that this was holding me back from many things I wanted in life such as traveling, finding a venue for my wedding, building myself as a martial artist, and finding a fulfilling career. I decided on making the leap to help myself and hire a life coach in hopes to work through all this, accomplish my goals, have more flavor in my life, and love myself. From day one, Fawn has put her heart into her coaching and I cannot begin to explain how much my life has improved since I have met her. I can only speak through my own personal experience into what I was looking for in a coach. Firstly, for me, trust was the most important quality I was looking for - as I felt that I would not make the improvements I needed unless I was honest with my coach and myself. Secondly, I wanted to be with a coach I had a good connection with. Third, I did not want a coach that was pushy when it came to sales. I interviewed with several coaches, and many tried to push me into signing a contract with them. And when I hesitated, they attempted to make me feel bad and that if I didn’t sign up, then I truly did not care about my well being. In reality, it was THEM I didn’t want. Although I understand that this is their career, I just did not like how disrespectfully I was treated. And fourth, I wanted a coach who was well established and had great reviews. This was a strenuous process, but WELL worth the time because at the end of it all, I went with Fawn because after the initial call, I felt that she exuded all of these qualities. And this was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. Now, four months later, I've seen that Fawn TRULY exemplifies each one of those qualities, at such a superior level while she is also humble, kind, thoughtful, smart, well-traveled, fascinating, resourceful, and the list of her qualities is endless. I can trust her with some of my most intimate ideas and thoughts, while she is understanding and open. When I re read her session notes she sends me, it's clear that she understands the message I am getting across. I also have a strong rapport with her. Very similar to a personal trainer’s relationship with their client – almost anyone can work with any trainer and get in better shape, but when you have a good relationship with your trainer, there is something very special about the mutual trust there, and when the student starts losing weight and getting stronger, the coach is genuinely excited, finds it rewarding, continues to push their client, while the client is trusting them and grateful - and it’s this on going positive relationship of improvement. I feel that this is an important quality in life coaching too, and I certainly feel this with Fawn. Additionally, she didn’t pressure me to sign a contract, at the same time she was honest and professional about moving forward. And when I researched her, I found she had a lot of wonderful reviews, she is well prepared and professional – and she lives up to everything I’ve read about her since I’ve been working with her. Since I’ve been working with her my life has improved significantly. She has provided me with the tools and support to identify WHAT my goals are, WHAT I want, and HOW to get them. Don’t get me wrong… I knew if I wanted to improve from any kind of coaching, I absolutely HAD to put in the work. And Fawn provides me with incredible thought provoking exercises that have really helped me identify what I want and how to get them, along with thought provoking calls. Additionally, when making changes in life, none of those changes felt natural, because they were NEW habits I was forming. Fawn taught me to continue pushing through the discomfort and eventually a lot of the discomfort turned into natural daily habits. And sometimes when I get overwhelmed, I fall back into self doubt and thinking I am incapable of getting the things I want, and Fawn is right there to coach me and help me see that these thoughts are untrue, and to go back to believing in myself and how to plan to get the things I want. So far, since I’ve been working with Fawn, I took 4 cathartic trips (when I was in fear of change, so traveling scared me - even though I knew it would be good for me); Fawn helped me discover my vision for my wedding in Yosemite and I put a deposit down (before I was overwhelmed by all the possibilities, she helped me simplify and meditate on what I wanted); I have improved with my martial arts goals, such as losing 15 pounds and getting my blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; I have more control over my finances and my credit score has increased; and I have more control over my anxiety. For me, these were some very significant breakthroughs and highlights in my coaching. I know there are many ahead and I have the confidence that I can get there. I could not recommend Fawn more if you are looking to improve your quality of life, and I know that I will continue her coaching throughout my future and positive changes to come!

In June of 2014, I was approaching age 50 and I weighted 230lbs. I was constantly being pressured by three close friends to try crossfit. My friends literally dragged me to CPP one day and I've been doing crossfit WOD's ever since that particular day. In four months, I lost 25 pounds and added 5 pounds of muscle. I'm currently weighting 210lbs. Crossfit has been a life changing experience and I'm extremely grateful to my friends for helping get in shape. There's also a very good group of coaches & members who constantly motivate you to complete the WOD's. Much thanks again to everyone at CPP!
If you want sustainable results, you want Victoria! I've been training in Los Angeles for the better part of this decade. I've done classes, personal training, private groups, the whole gambit. Victoria is hands down the best coach I have worked with. Not only are her workouts the most efficient I have experienced--my body began to shred after 2 mere weeks of working with her, she also has deep knowledge of nutrition. That is one thing most every fitness expert I know lacks, the dual knowledge of how to exercise your body and how to feed your body, brain and cells. Not only did I obtain the best physical shape of my life with Victoria, I learned about how to feed myself on a cellular level, AND have developed healthy patterns I adopt into my life even outside of our sessions.
I received Pedro, my life coach as a gift from the universe. It could have been any coach when I purchased a package of life coaching sessions on ethical deal. But I found THE coach. A coach that throughout a one year process helped me heal the past and find the courage to live my dreams. I wouldn't be where I am today without Pedro coming into my life and am very grateful to Pedro for his guidance and the benefit he brings to peoples lives. If you are looking for positive change in your life I highly recommend Pedro.
A few things brought me to the Pasadena. After an 18 month long hiatus from sprint triathlons, a change in career and relocating to Pasadena, my search for a new trainer started. I plugged into Thumbtack and interviewed some candidates, then I found Tommy. What a find!! He's experienced, educated, motivating and understands my ultimate goal in my sport. I came in with a slight injury and his rehabilitative exercises are effective and yet making me stronger and faster. His dedication to what he does exudes through his training. He identifies and encourages me to push. Any athlete could increase their athleticism and talent when working with Tommy. Everything you want to know about your functioning body, nutrition, supplements, etc., he knows it. His patience is endless. I've trialed other trainers, but the rapport was lacking in attentiveness and follow through. 100% present every time. A life investment worth every minute. I feel confident that my goals will be reached working with Tommy Houck.
Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samanthas approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you think they understand you, but with Samantha one feels it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.
I was stuck in a cycle of negativity and was having a hard time making clear decisions wading through the muck. She helped me clear the clutter, find a focus, and decide on a path forward. One achievable goal at a time. The first being self-esteem. Never really thought about how much a lack of it impacted every aspect of my life. A year later I am back in school getting a masters in advocacy and starting my dream of opening a business.

Judy’s program is so valuable in every way. I felt it was a very essential program for everyone in whatever stage of life to take a pause and reassess and refresh. Judy ISN the real jewel behind it. She brings an energy and enthusiasm to every call. She helps you see things you may not have seen yourself with each weeks work, and is able to personalize the material to each client. I have referred her to Teo close friendship who also rave about how fundamentally important and life’s changing the programs are. Judy is part coach, part psychologist, part mentor, part everything. She really brings so much insight and experience. I loved this program and her guidance in making it a part of my life.
I was unsure what to expect from a life coach session but Jon made me feel very comfortable and helped me think about simple steps to lead to greater accountability and potential obstacles to overcome in getting there.
Dr. Alex Karimi spoke at a workshop that my company attended last month. I've been to various speaking engagements, and listened to many motivational speeches in my life, but Dr. K really presented us with great techniques and tools for managing and attaining goals. Many of my colleges and myself continue to talk about what we learned from Dr. K's speech. Thank you Dr. Karimi for bringing your wisdom into our lives.
Hypnotherapy with Laur was an integral part in helping to reduce my anxiety and stress. As a person who has struggled with anxiety and stress my entire life, I thought I had exhausted all of my options, until I tried hypnotherapy. Laur establishes a safe and peaceful environment that allowed me to easily reach a hypnotic state. With her help, I was able to rewire the way my brain reacts to certain stimuli that would typically cause me to be anxious. Now when certain stressors arise (for example, my fear of flying) I am able to react in a more balanced way. Although my anxiety can never be "cured", through hypnotherapy Laur was able to better equip me to deal with common stressors and has granted me much more freedom and peace in my daily life.
Great time working out here if I had questions about sore muscles he knew exactly what stretches would fix the problem
Marina is a fantastic health coach and a wonderful human being. She helped me establish an easy lifestyle solution to eating healthily without feeling deprived. I needed someone to help me stop the yo-yo dieting and motivation to establish better eating routines. Marina is patient and provides the help custom-made to your particular needs. She is never intrusive. She helped me gain perspective into the deeper issues related to my yo-yo dieting. I am greatful to Marina for helping me establish a healthier lifestyle. I am more energetic than I ever was before. Thank you Marina for everything!
I’ve known Billy for a few years and I have watched him grow as a person. I’m very picky about who I choose to associate with. Billy possesses the characteristics of both a great friend and a life coach: trustworthy, honest, open minded, and a great listener, just to name a few. My session with Billy was both eye-opening and freeing. We really zeroed in on who I was created to be and what my purpose in life is, which are two questions that people of all generations have had to grapple with. Since my session with him a couple of days ago, I feel so much more confident in myself and purposeful, for lack of a better word. He was a able to get me to unlock my potential and to accept my own truth in just a few questions. His questions were short, but open ended and thought-provoking. I didn’t feel as though he was leading me to say a particular thing. If you need some enlightenment or you know that you are ready to step into your purpose, book a session with Billy. You will not be disappointed.
Ryan has been serving my company (literally serving) us for years. He is invaluable and has helped us raise our prices, define our prospects, speak the language of compassion to clients, and helped our revenue grow year over year by more than 15% each year.
