Jonathan got me into incredible shape. I was out of shape and chubby prior to seeing Jonathan. Now I'm lean, stronger, and at a healthy weight. Also, he is a great martial arts and Krav Maga coach. I've been training Krav classes elsewhere but not getting the results I wanted. Now my punches, kicks, maneuvers, and techniques are on point.
I have lost 15 pounds and 20 inches in two months. I had back surgery in the summer and Meagan's training and nutrition was perfect. Karen Joseph
I had my doubts about getting marriage counseling, but when I started going to Michelle she proved to me how helpful it really is. So much that I think every young couple needs coaching in order to avoid serious relationship issues in the future. With her loving sidekick/spouse helping out, it provides a male and female aspect of each situation that comes up. Overall, Michelle is a great, caring person that will provide you with positive energy, motivation, and useful resources for life (not just marriage counseling). Coaching or no coaching, it's always nice to be blessed with the presence of such a person in your lifetime.
She started as my Zumba instructor. In those classes she kicks the trash out of me with her constant combinations of dance, leg lunges and arm workouts which are awesome. I feel great after her workouts and know I will feel the soreness the next day but its all worth it. I work out harder and harder and she is always there pushing me to do better. After her classes she always makes time for anyone who needs to speak to her about their diet or what workouts should be good for them. She also took on the assignment on training my husband who has MS and she pushes him beyond his limit. Even though I have only known her almost a year as my instructor and trainer she has also become my friend and someone I can talk to when I need help or coaching. Thank you Johanna :)
I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.
I contacted Jason because I was looking to lose weight and wanted a personal trainer to work with. I love the fact that he had his own personal studio where we could train one on one without the distractions of a whole gym with thirty other people. I bought three months worth of sessions coming in 3 days a week. He was very flexible with my schedule which was something I needed with my work. His rates were awesome, I dare say unbeatable. I came in assuming the usual 3 sets of 15 reps of this and that. But boy, was I wrong. And in a good way =). His method is different from other personal trainers I've worked with in the past. The sessions were intense and left me feeling stronger than when I came in. Other trainers I've worked with had me looking at the clock wondering when the set would be over and the tortture would end but Jason made me want to keep going, he challenged me and made me feel what I can only assume athletes feel when they are training before the start of a season. In other words, it was hard work, intense but the hour flew by because he's actually made working out fun, never boring as no one session was the same =). Which was the best part. Each session was different and it made me look forward to what we were gonna do that day. I'm glad I chose to come to him because Equinox, NYSC, and Bodyscapes, honestly cannot compare to the service that Jason provides. I am speaking from experience. And what makes him successful at what he does is his PASSION to getting his clients healthier and transforming their body.
Monica is a super coach. She is a fantastic and patient swim teacher. Monica is kind and generous with her time and a darling swim coach. Everyone loves Monica and she is a 5 star terrific coach. We hope to have her with us as our coach for many years to come.
during the first session we tested my strength and he really walked me through everything we were doing and why we were doing it. he listened to what i wanted to change and then showed me workouts that would achieve my goals. i cant wait to really start training with him
I have been working with Kalyn for a few weeks now and I’m very happy with everything. Training has really been tailored to me and my goals which is what personal training is all about.
Dave has been my trainer since about 2006 and I couldn't be happier with his service. As a gym rat since high school, I've switched a lot between training myself and using a variety of personal trainers. I'm well educated in mechanics and nutrition and can spot a poser a mile away. Dave is certified by the ACSM and knows his stuff well. And although I might do fine on my own, I find that using a skilled trainer like Dave keeps me accountable and pushes me on days I don't feel like working. And it really helps that he shares my training philosophies and is easy to get along with. His current facility at Newport Workout is clean and uncrowded. If there's anything I could criticize, its that he's too far away now that I've moved up the highway. If you're even thinking about it, just try him out and you'll leave impressed Highly Recommended! (in my humble but accurate opinion :)
I've had several trainers over the years and none have had the proven results that I had while training with Victoria. I could see my body changing after just a few short weeks of training with her. Workouts were never boring or monotonous. She always mixed it up and kept me motivated. She really does personalize your program to suit your needs and helps you focus and stay committed not just to fitness, but nutrition and overall wellness as well. I've recommended her to several people and will continue to do so.
First off let me say I was skeptical about finding a personal trainer after my last one didnt even know my name or any of my goals after training with him for six weeks. That being said, I am very happy with Tommy and the SoFit SoCal team! They are everything a trainer should be and more! Nick is my SoFit SoCal trainer but Tommy oversees all as well. I've already signed up for my next set of sessions and am really excited to continue training with Nick and Tommy. They've been so helpful and informative. Can't recommend them enough!
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.
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
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.

Service is everything you need and you will receive.
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!
John Brougher of Brougher Strategies offers incredibly thoughtful and smart advice of great candor. He has been very communicative and always very quick to come up with thoughtful, personalized solutions for me, which have been very useful. Aside from the ability to determine your pain points, he can also help you think of the long-term game and will always be eager to help you think it through and coach you to achieve your goals -- his genuine desire to help people improve/grow/strengthen skills is a trait that I don't often come across. Highly recommended!
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.
Working with Jasmine has literally changed my life and the way I think. I've participated in her group coaching and also hired her to have private sessions. Jasmine has made a positive impact in my business, personal life and inner-self. She's inspiring, kind hearted and a beautiful soul. I can honestly say that Jasmine really knows how to work with ones self as an individual. I will definitely be recommending her to my family and friends.
Noor is a phenomenal, dedicated and exceptional member of the M2 Pro Fitness Team. I joined her Super Cardio group about three weeks ago, and my fitness levels have improved significantly. Through a combo of cardio and M2 Pro's resistance training, I've lost about 11 lbs. of fat and 7.5 inches in 30 days.
