I started working one on one with Patrick 3 months ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision! I had previously taken his group fitness classes and always gotten a lot of out them. Working with him one on one has taken it to a new level. He motivates me to do things I would never do on my own. I train with Patrick 3 times a week and every workout is different, challenging, and makes me feel good about myself. I never thought I would look forward to "getting my butt kicked" :) Patrick is also a great nutrition coach. He laid out a plan for me and holds me accountable...just what I needed. We always talk about my progress and ways to improve. Investing in a personal trainer was one of the best investments I ever made. Patrick is highly motivating, personable, knowledgeable, and always brings a positive, fun attitude. I would highly recommend him.
Patrick is a fantastic, great, and genuine guy. He has background in education, and coaching sports teams that makes him unique and down to earth. Patrick's genuine ability to be personable, relatable, truly caring about your success makes him truly stand out amongst the sea of personal and professional coaches.
Ellen perfected my resume and exceeded all expectations. I am preparing for a huge career change and she assisted greatly with providing all the beginning tools to do so. Ellen assisted me with my resume, Linkeden, and cover letter. She was very prompt and always was on top of wanting to help out! Could not asked for anyone better to assist me and was beyond pleased with the final result!
I have had a profound experience at each of my appointments with Astera. I appreciate her sincerity and commitment to wellness. I always feel safe and comfortable in her care. Her healing space where I attend my appointments is also very welcoming and inspiring. In January, I took Astera's Reiki Level 1 class and was very pleased with the results. She has been very supportive and easy to reach whenever I have questions or insight about my own path as a healer. I highly recommend her classes and services, as they are beneficial in constantly unfolding ways, and I always feel the love in her work.
Andrew keeps things interested by changing up the routine. He cares about your health, how the previous sessions worked, and your all around wellness.
She is an inspiring motivator to your child. She is warm, caring and very knowledgeable of all subjects. I would recommend her to anyone (child or adult). She not only helped my daughter with learning subjects for the ACT, but also with helpful hints and techniques. Lastly, my daughter also suffered from anxiety during testing. I'm happy to say she did not experience any anxiety when testing!!!
Every workout has been different & motivational!! Really starting to see results. I would definitely recommend Tricia!!
We could not have asked for more!!! We were so pleased with the demeanor, work ethic and general pleasant attitude of these professionals. We will definitely recommend them to our family and friends and hope to ask them to help us out in the future. We only needed to move a treadmill, but that is a big job in itself. They were efficient and the price was right!
Chavez is dedicated to personal wellness. He helped me achieve my fitness goals even through an unrelated ankle injury. He tailored his workouts and my meal plans to realistically meet my goal. He not only provided support to get through a rough workout, but provided a sympathetic ear to a stressed out teacher. He is amazing!
I just came here to express that working with Amanda has been one of the best investments for myself. I was completely lost and unhappy in my corporate job, and was always itching for something else. The biggest thing was her passion for this work which inspired me to do my work each week and stay committed. She helped me get clear on what I wanted and also motivated me to take steps each week. She's a gem and her heart in fully in it. She goes above and beyond what most coaches would do. Her energy and open-mindedness made my time with her special and I wish I could work with her forever! :)
The exercises that Curtis uses are great tools for opening people's minds to the complexities of diversity issues. A real benefit for you any team looking to improve the way they interact with an ever-more connected and heterogeneous world.
Roy Boxill is a very good coach. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a life coach. He is very attentive and courteous. If I could give him more stars I would.
Rosie gives a spiritually healing treatment which leaves you feeling clean and healthier by removing all the stress and negativities weighing you down.
I have been stuck in the same job for the last 5 years as a mid-level manager. I'm wasn't sure if there was hope for me to move to the next level in leadership. Letta was really responsive and quick to help me outline a strategy that should work well. We'll be meeting a couple times a month for coaching sessions where we'll work on mock interviews and leadership scenarios to help me gain more skills that will impress my bosses. This really seems like it's going to help me out of my rut!
You will not find a personal trainer who cares more about you then Steve! He really kicked it up to get me into shape for summer. Steve is like that tough coach that pushes you hard, but is still fun!!! Highly recommend!!!!! Natalia Trybula
As a spiritual life coach, Larry is both sensitive and smart, exuding a contagious reverence for the Holy, while embodying so seamlessly the art of finding the sacred in everyday life. I highly recommend working with him in the realm of life coaching and spiritual direction, if you have the opportunity to benefit from his innate insight!
Over the years I’ve taken many yoga classes and have known many teachers, but it was not until I discovered a certified teacher of Iyengar yoga, the type Amy teaches, that I finally realized how beneficial yoga could be. Iyengar yoga is designed to help people with a wide range of abilities acquire the correct balance and positioning that enable the body to function at its best. For this reason, Iyengar yoga can be undertaken by women or men, children or older adults, and even people with disabilities, because an experienced teacher can tailor the person’s practice for any special needs or level of ability. My first Iyengar teacher moved away, and for a long time I feared I would never find anyone that good again. Then one day I read an article about Amy in the paper, and the long search was over. Like my first teacher, Amy has the ability to instantly spot whatever adjustment a student might need and can supply a wide range of aids to make a pose work for that person. She has a warm, welcoming personality, endless patience, and a good sense of humor. Our class can be challenging, but it’s always rewarding.
I am very happy with my coaching experience with Jack. He really helped me get on track and move ahead.
I have a degree in counseling psychology with a special interest in geropsychology. I will meet with your senior and assess an appropriate at-home plan that will encompass psychological interventions that have been proven to lessen anxiety and isolation symptoms of the elderly. Validity therapy and life review are 2 effective treatments, currently. Depending on the severity of the client's symptoms, weekly in-home visits are possible, and even daily check-ins are available and effective for a very reasonable fee based on individual client's needs. My company's mission statement is to treat all individuals with dignity while providing the client and their family with the tools needed to keep their loved ones in their home for as long as possible.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been a social worker for over 25 years. I have worked with many different populations. I love seeing change in people. It fulfills me to be a part of the change process. I have added Life and Parenting Coaching to my practice in the past 5 years. Coaching is highly motivating. It is typically a shorter term, faster paced process than counseling. A little about me.....I am a special needs adoptive parent. I have four children by adoption. Three of my children have special needs. I have experience navigating the special education system, residential placement system, in-patient hospitalizations, home based services, etc. I'm also a devout sports mom! I have an active, loud, happy family. We also rescue dogs so we have rambunctious dogs added to the mix! I currently work full time in a prison. I spend the majority of my time helping inmates find meaning and purpose in their lives, despite their long sentences. It is immensely rewarding to help these inmates move from despair to hope and to be a part of that process. I also maintain a small counseling and coaching practice in the evening and/or weekends based on schedules and child sport season. I am dedicated to my clients and I will help your realize your dreams and goals! I work to help adults achieve and maintain their goals. It is so easy to lose yourself in the busy-ness of life. Balance is the key to maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Thank you for making Miss Black Minnesota such a positive event. January 5, 2011 * Arthur Horton III, educational counselor - TRiO, City Colleges of Chicago, colleague He worked with me. Ms. Smith is one of the best motivational speakers that I have met. When we appeared for a speaking engagement without students, she performed so well that we had to bring her back a second time. She really connected well with students, and it helped motivate them to find out what they do well and move forward in their future endeavors whether it be college or technical school.
