I originally started working out with Evan to lose some weight and get in better shape. After several weeks of training I found out I was pregnant. I decided to continue training through pregnancy and it was one of the best decisions I made. Evan is great at adapting the workout program to fit whats going on in your life and the combination of strength, flexibility and balance exercises he incorporates into every session really helped me feel confident on my feet. I could feel the strength I gained in my core, and my lower back specifically, which really helped support me during my pregnancy.. If youre looking for a educated, experienced and personable trainer I would definitely recommend him
I've been working with Gerard for over a month now... after never working out or touching a weight or machine in my life and I have to say I'm very pleased with my progress and his workouts and nutrition advice ..He's showed me proper techniques and form and taught me how to eat better and strengthen my entire body with an emphasis on my legs and core which has helped me tremendously with my skiing and tennis ...Gerard is funny and knowledgeable and makes the workouts different and challenging every week..I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a first time trainer and or in need of motivation and great workouts !!!
I had tried everything to lose weight. Dieting, food delivery services, juice cleanses, daily exercise... nothing seemed to have a noticeable impact. I finally decided that I needed to hire someone that could help, and my research led me to Dr. Colgin. He guides you through a weight loss program that acts as a metabolic reset. He explained the whole process to me during the free consultation, and it made so much sense; the reason I wasn't losing weight on my own was due to the fact that my metabolism had slowed to a crawl. Over the course of 6 months, I've lost over 60 pounds. Since I'm also a chef, I had the ability to get really creative with my meals, which made the whole process a lot of fun. Want to see? Look up "flawedartist" on Instagram! I didn't feel like I was eating diet food at all! For the first time in years, I feel like a normal human being again, all because of Dr. Colgin. This program doesn't require you to work out, there's no pre-packaged food, and you talk to Dr. Colgin every single day. He cheered me on as I hit each milestone, worked with me anytime I hit a plateau, and patiently answered any questions I had about what I should and shouldn't eat. Having that level of support during the whole process made a world of difference. If you're struggling to lose weight, you need to give him a call. The initial consultation is free and comes with a guarantee. What diet program offers one of those! As for Dr. Colgin, he's knowledgeable, kind, and patient, and will not push you into anything you aren't ready to do. You've literally got nothing to lose, except for that extra weight, of course ;)
Owl Wise is a fabulous service. Velina is a truly gifted woman. She has helped me physically, mentally, and emotionally with my stress level. She is nurturing, caring , and professional. Such an awesome stress management treatment!
John is amazing! He worked with my sister and I throughout our early pregnancies and our workouts were the highlight of my week. He didn't go easy on us (so. many. walking. lunges!) but we never felt unsafe or out of our comfort zone. He was great at thinking through our workouts holistically so that we didn't ever totally burn out one muscle group or another in a single session. I felt strong and awesome working with John. Looking forward to getting back to work with him after we deliver!
I've consulted with Dennis twice. The first time had to do with supplementation to help alleviate peripheral neuropathy. The second occasion was to seek assistance with sleep. On both occasions, Dennis promptly provided a comprehensive list of suggestions that showed an understanding across modalities, including plant and nutritional supplements. The depth of his knowledge and quick recall are both impressive. Dennis also walks his talk by living a fit and healthy lifestyle. I recommend consulting with him for any health condition.
Xavier is the most amazing trainer! He is incredibly positive and knowledgeable about everything related to the body (working out, nutrition, injuries, anatomy, massage and more). We train 3x a week and he now trains two friends -- who both LOVE him too. Xavier loves what he does (his positivity is infectious!), creates custom programs based on each person's needs and truly helps you reach your potential. ALSO: every few weeks Xavier does a posture adjustment massage on me and I get up feeling like I'm walking on clouds w/ zero tension in my body. I cannot recommend Xavier enough. He has completely changed the way I workout and see myself.
I have experience working with students from a variety of different national and cultural backgrounds as well as age groups. Therefore, I can easily adapt to the learning style and focus of the student.
When I started working with Shannon I was struggling with deep unhappiness and uncertainty about my life, as well as my relationships with the people in my life. I was skeptical of talking to anyone because of several prior bad experiences with counselors and psychiatrists. But I called anyway out of desperation and I'm very glad in retrospect that I did. Shannon helped me consciously identify things that are important to me and things I wanted to change. With Shannon I learned to proactively become aware of and eliminate negative, harmful, or just plain not useful patterns of thinking and instead treat myself using positive reinforcement. These changes seems small and simple but their impact is deep. I also benefited from her wise perspective on managing relationships with others. By using what I've worked on with Shannon, I feel more clear, capable, reflective, and self-aware. This in turn has helped me focus, enjoy my work, and improve how I view my relationships with my family and coworkers. I'm all around much happier and proud of myself. In working with Shannon, I was impressed by her kindness, her breadth of understanding, her proactive approach, and her focus on ensuring her clients improve in a quantifiable, verifiable way. I would and do recommend her to anyone looking for guidance through rough times, especially if you're looking for quick and concrete practices to implement to improve your life immediately.

I'm starting a consultancy and Emily (EHM | Brand+) has helped me to build it from the ground up. We finished our Phase I work having to do with brand creation (one contract) and soon we will start Phase II which has to do with growing based on the core brand values (another contract). Emily is extremely professional and also manages to make me think hard and dig deep during our sessions together. Most of my exchanges are in-person but I had to travel for business for awhile and we emailed and did a session over the phone. Emily is also amazingly creative and fun to work with. I got what I paid for (a few grand over a few months and set for 3 more at about $800/month - different kind of work this time, not as involved). Emily works hard and I always felt like she went the extra mile to make sure I was getting what I wanted.

My testimonial to you Arash Ghiasi: When Arash appeared in my life I was on the edge of losing all hope in humanity and giving up on life itself. I had poured my services, time, and efforts into multiple business opportunity ventures working aside owners with no integrity. I was left high and dry and not a penny to show for it. Arash literally pulled me out of the trenches of hell and misery and revived me back to life. His kind, nurturing words and spirit I could feel directly through the phone as he prayed for me. Not only did I have a spiritual awakening, and found my relationship with God again, be he instilled in me a new sense of self-confidence. Arash then provided me with tools, guidance, mentoring, and coaching enabling me to create a life I thought was impossible on my own. He lit the fire within me so much so that I hit the ground running pursuing my passion in the fitness and wellness industry I had left behind two years ago. As a business-minded, entrepreneur-driven, and educated woman I have found my lane and calling of performing God’s work in helping people transform their lives mind to body AND spirit! In a span of the three short weeks I have worked with Arash I have taken my business and life to a whole new level! I have new eyes to see and new mind to think in the way God would want me to think. I have now rebranded myself and my business, and have generated a steady flow of leads who have turned into new clients! I truly believe my guardian angel grandmother and God sent Arash to direct me and regain my faith. He coached me step by step how “fish” and get my feet back on the ground. I am the living and breathing testament of how Arash can and will revolutionize your life. Eternally grateful, and blessed. ~Kasia B.

Great experience! I worked with WAM Consulting to help me with my sales negotiation skills thru influence and moving from a Subject Matter Expertise to a true Trusted Advisor to my clients after a few sessions. They were also able to help me with my well-being and manage my anxiety and stress. Highly recommend. They are new to Thumbtack so check their LinkedIn references if you want more reviews. That's what convinced me.
