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
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!
Santa Cruz Core Fitness + Rehab is the place to go! From the owner, Jaimi, to the receptionist, and trainers, they are all amazing and professional. They are very knowledgeable and make you feel really comfortable and positive. They are willing to work things out for you and your goals. I am just starting my fitness journey and I've never felt this great. And I've only been in for 2 training sessions. You guys need to check them out as they are expanding locations. They are now in Santa Cruz and Watsonville. You won't regret it! Also, the workouts are AMAZING!!!
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!
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 ;)
I had a profound and transformative experience with Laura Wilson's coaching. In only one session she was able to bring something to light that I had spent countless hours with other, healers, therapists, coaches and consultants to try and uncover. I loved the way she used a process that involved us talking and me moving my body. During that session I had the awareness of what was trying to emerge in my business ( My authentic self) and, I was able to make massive shifts afterward, that allowed me to initiate a huge uplevel personally and professionally. If you are thinking of hiring a life coach- look no further. Laura is the real deal.
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.
Working with Sara has been eye-opening. Beyond providing great nutrition advice and delicious recipes, she also took the role of therapist at times, helping me realize the different ways my relationship with food and my body reflected other stresses in my life. She encouraged me to stop focusing on superficial reflections of my health, and get more in tune with how I feel in a holistic sense. While it's still a work in progress, since working with her I've become more in tune with my body, better able to sense its cravings, and as a result haven't the same "binge" or "cheat" days I had before — instead becoming more comfortable with treating myself to smaller indulgences throughout the week. As she says, it's nourishment for the soul!
Jacqueline is an amazing well informed holistic trainer who understands individuality (individual capabilities). She works diligently and patiently with each person.She strives for personal growth, and it shows through her work outs and motivational gestures. I recommend Jacqueline to anyone who wants growth and gains or is a beginner and wants to understand more about health and fitness. What I admire most about Jacquline is her personal mission to understand each clients strengths and weaknesses, this is vital in the realm of fitness, where people are prone to injury due to poor form. I really enjoy my sessions with Jacqueline. Although she may understand ones weakness that does not equate to simple workouts. She will encourage you to surpass plateaus with a lot of care and positivity.
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.
Let me start off by saying that I am a personal trainer and there is no other nutritionist/cleanse program that I would ever send one of my clients to. I took their 28 day cleanse class with my mom and she lost 14 pounds during the 28 days! I wasn't in the cleanse for weight loss but it was great for me, too. I learned a ton (and I thought I knew a lot before doing it). I recommend all of my clients go to Cambiati not only for their classes and 1 on 1 consultations, but for their supplement store, too! It's the only place I shop for my supplements. The ingredients in their supplements are backed by myriad studies so you know that what you are putting into your body is great for you. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you try out another program besides Cambiati and you are unhappy, it's not my fault. You have been warned. Go to Cambiati! You won't regret it.
Brooke has cooked for me on a number of occasions and every dish has always been creative and delicious. She is particularly good at working within my dietary restrictions but still producing some amazing food! I will definitely have her cook for me again!
Judy really listens to what your saying, and takes in all of the information, before giving feeedback. I felt as if she really took the time to understand me, and my situation, as I felt I was going through a unique and challenging time in my life. I also appreciated the way that she helped me see how all the different elements of my life were related, and to look at the big picture. Judy helped me to understand where I was and where I wanted to get to, and I now feel like I have a plan of action. I truly went from, “Hoping”, to actually, “Doing”, and now I am more relaxed, and grounded in my approach, as I now have a plan in place. Thank you Judy, you helped me to implement a great system, now my new business is thriving, and I’m actually going to start dating again! I will always consider you a consultant and a friend.
Worked with Susan Evans, RN in an intensive partial hospitalization program where she was the psychiatric nurse for the entire program. Her skill, expertise, compassion, experience and humor were great assets and greatly appreciated by staff and clients alike! A terrific health care professional, with unlimited energy and a wide variety of talents.
Alison did a great job helping me with my resume. I had been out of work for a long time due to an injury, and I was feeling insecure and out practice in looking for a job. Alison has a very reassuring presence and she gets right to work. She doesn't do that thing some consultants do, making you feel that you're hopeless without her. She made me feel good about where we starting from, and I found that refreshing. We addressed issues of wording, presentation, and formatting with regard to my resume, and her genuine ability to discuss, and get at, the essence of professional experiences helped me to express my abilities in a sincere, profound, and marketable way. I thought she would simply give feedback on the resume I brought with me, but no, she pulled the document right up on her computer and together we shaped it into a far superior representation of my professional self, and then emailed me our completed file. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Mario is an outstanding trainer for the following reasons: he knows how to train and teach his clients about the exercises he uses; he individualizes the exercise program for each client (does not use the cookie cutter approach); Mario researches the best exercises for his clients and listens to the clients requests/needs. And, he has a marvelous sense of humor which goes far in an hour long intensive training session. Highly recommend Mario's training and consulting services.
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.
