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.

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.

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

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!

Dania has been incredibly helpful with my teenage daughter. Her ability to understand my daughter's needs and personality have been crucial in my daughter's progress. I see my daughter's receptivity to Dania's offerings, which is no small feat. Any time an issue or critical moment has arisen, Dania has handled it professionally, and sensitively, enabling us to move through the challenge and continue with my daughter's healing process.

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. :)
