Hiring a personal trainer was not an easy step for me to take, because what I had seen of personal trainers and at big gyms was a big turn-off. What set him apart initially was that he offered a ‘no gimmicks, no pressure’ approach, was a (or soon to be a) registered dietician, offered additional services as a personal chef, and could do workouts either at his location or mine. When I started, I was in a hectic transition period with my job and so my schedule was unpredictable. Mike completely understood, and worked with me to schedule workout sessions in a very no-pressure way. During workouts, he pays attention (to safety, to how I am feeling and handling it…), and makes adjustments as needed based on the individual person. He started me on a level I could handle and we are building from there. The workouts are interesting and varied, which makes them fun (imagine that!), and I appreciate his positive reinforcement and encouragement, as it pushes me in a positive way to do the best I can. Based on my experience so far, I can say that Mike cares very much about the progress of his students and goes the extra mile to help them reach their goals. In the short amount of time I have been working with him, I have lost 17 pounds (more to go) and I am becoming stronger. As a result am gaining confidence and setting new goals which I am excited to reach! I would definitely recommend Mike and Start Fresh Fitness.
Carey was absolutely amazing. She is genuinely in the business because she loves it, not for the money, and you can tell that she absolutely loves her job and the people. Thanks so much!
I have known Liza for several years. She had been our family, marriage, parenting, individual, therapist for a couple of those years. Her down to earth, practical, solid biblical approach to her active therapy style was truly a God send for us. We had been through a few other counselors over the course of 10 years. Liza was able to establish what our families needs were, and was able to teach us the tools we needed to build up our parenting skills and help us with a deeper understanding of our marriage structure in a year and a half. Liza touched on things that were never brought up before and really had us doing some internal work and walking some roads that were hard but very effective. The skills and knowledge that we gained from our experience with her are are really priceless and such a deep blessing. Granted, our family was willing to do the work, but she guided us with Gods word the whole way through. I would highly recommend her to you. Her gift of empathy truly spoke to our hearts and helped us through the hardest most traumatizing events in our lives. My family was able to heal and come out of this stronger and more solid then we had prayed for.
Jay is easy to talk to and very insightful at moving one to a meaningful understanding of self and personal responsibility for the things you control.
I've known Ms. Hansen for over four years and have enjoyed the guidance she has provided me and my daughter over the years. She practices with an open mind and true insight into the mind and soul. Whether it's needing an ear to listen to a particular problem or guidance in a much needed meditation, she has been a great counsel in my life. I also cherish the guidance she has provided my daughter in managing stress associated with school and everyday life. Everyone should have an asset like Ms. Hansen for living your life presently and to it's fullest. Highly recommended!
Jinna did an amazing job as the officiant at our wedding. She made sure to get to know us on a personal level and made the ceremony exactly how we wanted it. She was very open to ideas and offered great suggestions. I really loved how she added in our stories and beliefs to our ceremony for that personal touch . It was an amazing and unforgettable day. We also had many people from the wedding compliment us on the ceremony. I recommend her to all of my friends and family.
George MacIlwinen is the Horse Whisperer of young adults struggling to find their footing in their transition to adulthood. Our son had a history of difficult medical problems in childhood that prevented him from achieving developmental milestones and left him as an anxious young adult, depressed, over-medicated and isolated. Over the years we ran through many therapists and programs and our son had grown skeptical of their effectiveness. All that changed when we met George MacIlwinen. George's contributions to our son's life and our family's life are so extensive, it would take pages to catalog them. First and foremost, George understood our son like no one had before, he understood the trauma that our son had experienced and the gaps in his development. Most important, he saw our son's potential and his prospects for a good future. Therapeutically, George is a creative and independent thinker. He has an over-arching philosophy, but within that he is adaptive. For our son he followed a holistic approach incorporating experiential therapy and psychotherapy together with a strong emphasis on healthy life habits including reduced medications, physical fitness and diet. He has also been especially proactive in helping our son develop social skills. Personally, George is calm, empathetic and friendly. He's genuine with an easy smile. He is an excellent listener; he's insightful. George models the healthy behavioral habits that he advocates. He's a natural mentor and educator and has provided invaluable counseling and guidance to our son and to us. George MacIlwinen is an amazing therapist. Meeting him has been one of the single best things that has ever happened to our family. It's a great pleasure to recommend him to you.
I have one word to describe Charlene. She is AMAZING!!! In previous years I had seen many different counselors and psychiatrists. All they would do was take notes and let me talk. They did not teach me tools to better cope with my situation and my past. I never truly resolved my problems, and my lingering PTSD. I feel like it was a God-send for me to meet Charlene. She not only is the best listener she is also incredible at feedback. She utilizes EFT (Emotional Freeing Technique) which has changed my life. I am a true testament to the technique working. She is very professional, and always on time. She is an incredible listener, and has great empathy. I have seen her for more than 5 years now, and every time I leave a session I feel more stable. I now have life changing skills to function with a dysfunctional family. Charlene is caring, compassionate, and genuinely sincere. She is a very giving person, and has helped me become a better me. I would recommend her to anybody and everybody. My boyfriend and I took RE (Relationship Enhancement) skills from Charlene, and this has helped me to better communicate with my boyfriend and others. I have become a better listener and have more empathy for people. People tell me I am different (for the better), and I feel more grounded. Now friends are asking me for advice on how to resolve problems. Before I was the one seeking advise. Charlene really cares about her clients, and makes time in an emergency to talk to them. I remember once when my dog was dying I called Charlene, and she helped me calm my soul. When my mother passed away she was there for me. It will never go unnoticed. She is so gifted at sign language, and I believe that makes her even a better listener. She is very gifted at her profession. Thank you Charlene for making me a better me, and helping my family.
Jason was very professional, finished the job in timely manner will be using him again
