Jaisen was wonderful to work with, of the fitness trainers that reached out to me he was the most communicative, organized and professional.. Jaisen payed close attention to my concerns and set me up with a female fitness coach that I'm very much looking forward to working with. He has the right temperament and addresses your goals as an indivisible. I would absolutely recommend working with Jaisen and one of his coaches!
We needed a Life Coach to help motivate a group of 60 individuals in the insurance business. We didn't know where to look and interviewed many candidates in person & WoW; Mr. Stone came in. He had a confidence, fearlessness and inner strength that was second to none. Here was a Life Coach who just knew what to say and when to say it -- and how loud to say it! He analyzed the room very quickly and knew what was necessary to get these teams up on their toes. I must say some of his ways are a bit unconventional but it just worked. As said in his profile, "it is not the odds that kill us but the spirit that dies if one is not able to fight those odds". He installed that spirit in everyone in the room including upper management and the executives. Once in a while you meet someone who is a little different yet relates to those who are listening and understands what they need to hear to embrace the next challenge and better themselves. As he said, there is a formula that he learned as an executive through the years through trial and error that just works. His stories alone had the group mesmerized and his intensity was formidable. If you can get him to handle your meetings/conventions; grab him as he is well worth it. We couldn't haven't been happier as he even stayed a bit longer to answer individual questions from the audience on stage and alone.
I wasn't sure how coaching worked and if it would be for me. I was a little shy at first to reach out and talk to someone I didn't really know. After working with Judy, I was able to really express my true thoughts and feelings regarding topics I could barely tell anyone else. I gained more confidence and strategies for reducing stress and learning how to deal with specific triggers that hindered my potential.I throughly enjoyed Judy and her feedback to my concerns. The frequency and timing of sessions was easy to manage with a busy schedule and the resources she provided me will continue to help me in the future. I would definitely recommend Judy's services as she is a reliable, personable and incredible individual who has helped me progress in areas I was always unsure how to correct on my own. Judy has been a pleasure to work with and is really worth a try if you’re in need of life coaching!
Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems hes unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldnt count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)
I was the kind of girl who never thought she would ever need a personal trainer -- EVER. Over the summer, I had the luxury for spending 2/12 to almost 3 hours in the gym, 4 times a week. Yes, my body was in excellent shape, but the problem was I burnt myself out almost every time I went, which made the follow-up trips to the gym even more daunting than the last. As the fall months settled in and acquiring a new job in NYC, I knew I wouldn't have the luxury to spend the same amount of time and effort at the gym. I was very suspicious of hiring a personal trainer, but I gave it a shot and I have to say I'm SO glad I did. Richard definitely knows his stuff. He is a well-educated trainer, with a degree from an amazing University (Penn State) with personal experience of training and conditioning actual athletes on the Penn State Football team. His system and methods for acquiring a healthy life-style are trackable, noticeable, and realistic. With his training I've accomplished more than I was doing on my own, in a FRACTION of the time I was pouring into the gym. As any other gym junkie will tell you, the results don't come unless you put the work in, but by FAR Richard provides the right tools, guidance, expertise and enthusiasm to help you achieve your body goals in a HEALTHY way. Did I mention his rates are awesome?!?
Working with Kathy is awesome- I do see myself working with her for a long time. Love her coaching and encouragement as well. Kathy, trianing is all about proper form and no injury! And that is key for proper weight-lifing!!! One can get awesome training without the overly soreness- muscles are worked without the extreme shred. Love it! Great workout and great coach. Thank you !!!
I have been working with Toni for almost two years and Diet Alternatives is a 'real life' program. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle. When you read through the literature, put it into practice and speak with Toni - it just makes sense and it works.Just like all of us with weight related issues, she talks the talk and walks the walk everyday. I have been a yo-yo dieter since my teenage years and have tried every diet out there. With Toni, I have lost the majority of the weight and although I am still a work in progress,Toni's one-on-one approach and Diet Alternatives has made the difference.
Kylie was really professional, kind, attentive and caring. The space was beautiful and provided a safe, relaxed environment. We talked before and after the session itself to address my specific needs and the advise and guidelines I received in addition to the healing is already helping me release emotional blocks and live more according to my intentions. The session itself was relaxing and comfortable. I would highly recommend her services! Best regards, Hilde
Tommy has coached me completely over the phone/ text/ email / Skype. He has motivated and held me accountable to all food and water intake goals. He really keeps me on track; his coaching program is like no other I have seen. Great job. Down 45 lbs.
We're off to a great start! I just signed on for a 3 month life coaching cycle with Jerry and am very pleased. I had my 1st coaching skype session earlier this week and gained much clarity and many useful takeaways both through our session and through the discovery questionnaire she gave me to do prior. Life is already feeling better. Jerry is very responsive, kind and professional!
Kevin is truly a ' best in world' trainer. I can't say enough about Kevin but please read this and hopefully you'll have a better idea of how he has changed my life on a very personal level. I have severe health issues and take lots of medicine. My doctors told me i need to work out with someone who can handle the complexities of my case to build bone density and I was lucky enough to find Kevin. He is like a personal trainer, chiro, physical therapist and friend all wrapped up on one. He is so committed to helping me have the best quality of life and so well versed on many things I trust him implicitly and consider him part of the core team working to make me better. I've had the oppty to work with trainers in many states who were all supposedly the best and can say that Kevin is in a league of his own. He is so creative and comes up with a different ways to challenge me, make it fun, change it up, incorporate things to help build core and posture overall and bring things into the mix like boxing that he knows I really like. I truly look forward to our sessions and always feel better afterwards, it's been great to see the progress and my doctors are thrilled that I was so lucky to find him- he has blown away any expectations. Whether you have health challenges or are training for the army or wanna look good for your wedding or the summer bathing suit season Kevin will not only help you achieve your goals but will quickly become part of your way of life. I can't say enough about Kevin and his dedication, expertise, continual desire to learn more ways to help and just being a cool guy and easy to laugh with-if you are lucky enough like me to work with Kevin you should jump at the oppty! Seriously, he is worlds best trainer.
Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.
Gabriella is amazing. She helped me gain the courage to leave my ex and supported me all the times I failed. She was never judgemental and has always given me the tools for me to realize what I have to do. She has this amazing way of making you realize things for yourself. I can honestly say Im truly the happiest I've ever been. Not because my life changed magically but because of the way I deal with things and handle things - all because of her. On a side note, there have been times when I haven't been regular about my sessions and I've texted her asking if she could talk -- and she has made it happen...sometimes within 15 minutes! She truly does care about her clients and is such a wonderful life coach.
Having Jeanine as my coach changed my life. She helped me discover my purpose. She helped me turn my life around when things were a little dark and there is no doubt that I am a better man today because I called her.
At the time I met Brent Piper, (a chance meeting), I was thinking about all of the things I needed to do on the last leg of my life. Trouble is I feel stuck and very tired. I was surprised his office is located in the Wall Street area. I was looking forward to getting some answers to my delema and what to do about it. After several meetings, telling him about my life, I was a little disappointed I was'nt told mm what to do. What I learned is that it is up to me to make choices and to act on them. Brent points out certain gestures and feelings that I am not aware of. He gets me to role play and also speak honestly to the people who have had a negative impact on me; that certain words or actions towards me have hindered me in life. Sometimes I feel like stopping the sessions for fear of revealing too much. But then, I feel there is more work to do. The real stuff is just beginning and Brent can help me the way a theater director helps an actor make a breakthrough. I look forward to our sessions.
I met Robert McLean at a previous job that we worked at during college. Right off the bat, I knew that this guy was someone who could potentially change my life, even before he was officially in the business of lifestyle coaching. Robert is a mastermind at what he does. As Robert began to learn more about my life, habits and general situation, he suggested small changes that he believed would benefit me. I was not in good shape. I did not know the first thing about style. My dating life was a mess, as I constantly lowered myself and settled for people that embarrass me to think about. Looking back now, I was pretty miserable. As his first client, I gave him total control and put my trust into him fully, which was a bit scary initially, but I felt I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. At the end of the day, he definitely delivered and I immediately saw results. His in depth knowledge and life experience helped to guide me through the process of Fitness, Image, and Dating. Throughout the process, he began to give me new hope for my future. His bubbly personality made this six month journey fun for me, but he also challenged me in ways that I did not expect. He is very reliable, trustworthy, and uses methods that will leave you with a new-found confidence. My life has changed drastically, as I now have a consistent gym routine, an excellent diet, as well as a stylish wardrobe that fits my personality and emphasizes my attributes. Because of this, my dating life has been superb, as I have met and dated a number of beautiful women and no longer have to lower my standards to find a date. If you are unhappy with your body, style, or dating life, I guarantee that you can turn things around. If I was able to, then I believe that anyone can with that extra push and extra motivation. I highly recommend Robert and his service. I know that he will build on his already great ideas and continue to change people's lives.
I had the extreme pleasure of working with Gillian at Shiftability Coaching. This was my first experience with any type of coaching. As a parent, I was completely distraught over a decision to have my young children enroll in public school in the suburbs or stay in the city and keep them in private school. Gillian's thought provoking questions and exercises allowed me to differentiate between my feelings of fear and instinct. Within 4 sessions I was able to make a decision with joy and confidence! Gillian is very kind, friendly and easy to talk to. I felt her guidance came from a place of genuine and authentic interest in my journey. I honestly cannot say enough about my experience. Thank you Gillian. I felt as though I was talking to a dear friend!
My experience with Theresa as my health coach was excellent. She helped me see further into my eating habits and ways to work through my daily urges. Theresa has a lot of patience and very knowledgeable about health coaching. She not only teaches but also follows it in her own life. I admire how discipline Theresa is when it comes to healthy eating. This was a great experience, I would recommend her to anyone that is serious about making real changes in their life. You won't regret it!!!
I found Evan’s coaching service to be helpful in my job search. In my situation, I felt completely stuck. Evan helped get me "un-stuck" by asking all the right questions allowing me to come to the conclusion on my own time and in my own way. He watched me go through all the iterations of, "do I want this?" "is this right for me?" "whose interest am I serving here?" until I was finally able to conclude it was time to move on. When it came time to apply, I got excellent coaching on my resume and cover letter as well as my approach to the search. I even felt confident enough to cold-call some employers and eventually took a job with one of those who wasn't advertising an open position but just happened to be looking. Evan has an easy personal communication style. After the initial awkwardness that comes with bearing your fears to someone you barely know, he quickly became a trusted adviser. I have ADHD, and need structure and deadlines to keep me accountable. Sometimes, I bristle at this structure and deadlines and push back. But Evan never let me forget that I am ultimately holding myself accountable to myself. Setting deadlines and creating structure just became a part of our regular discussions. That was immensely helpful! Most importantly, Evan was able to meet me where I am mentally and emotionally until we could walk together toward my goals. You can probably tell that I'm a fan. I would recommend him to friends and colleagues especially those looking to make a change and want to put their best foot forward, be it personal or professionally.
Priya is a great health coach. She personalized my journey to my target weight with realistic goals and a diet plan. She is understanding of the struggle a person can go through and is kind and is a good listener. A lot of that is because she went through a successful massive weight loss herself. She knows how important it is to be resolute and stay on the right path to a healthy weight loss. She believes in constant communication through appointments and through emails. Thanks Priya!
Terry has been reachable whenever I need him, happy to help and most importantly has given me results. I had a previous coach that had me doing insane amount of cardio and eating hardly any carbs. Terry has helped my metabolism so much and I’ve never eaten so much while maintaining my weight. I will never go without him in my life. I travel a lot for work and he goes out of his way to customize my workouts to fit what my hotel gym has, so it really doesn’t get much more customized/as punctual than this! He is amazing. He makes sure that you reach your goals and works with you and your schedule. Highly recommend without any hesitation.
