When looking for a personal trainer, it struck me exactly how hard it is to find quality in any service. Most people are bad at most things, and people that take their work seriously are rare. I signed up for some classes with a trainer at my gym. Paid a reasonable amount. Got terrible advice and hurt myself. The trainer was probably trying his best but just didn't have the experience or knowledge to help me learn correctly. I was afraid to make a more serious financial commitment with no guarantee that I'd get better results... but I tried out ELIN, and I'm glad I did. I got a phone call from Elin and was immediately impressed with his knowledge and his ability to communicate effectively about critical aspects of getting in shape. It was clear this was a no-bs trainer that was interested in actually providing training rather than tricking me into paying an exorbitant price and then phoning it in. I began sessions with a trainer named Kris. Kris had the body to indicate that he knows how to work out, but that isn't always enough. You have to be an effective teacher as well. It turns out Kris has an excellent eye for form and was able to explain, over the course of our sessions, specific issues with my body that needed to be addressed. He found exercises that addressed those issues, and if I had difficulty with that exercise, he found a new one that worked better. He strikes an excellent balance between fixing form and letting you get on with the workout, neither constantly interrupting you nor letting you do useless reps. He was also able to explain and demonstrate over time the importance of the less glamorous parts of the workout, such as stretching and SMR, which all of us "know" are important but which we never really accept as crucial. In short, all of my expectations for hiring a professional trainer were met. These guys don't screw around. If you're serious, hire ELIN.
I have been working in a field for over a decade and was ready for a career change. I am a person who, can always help others in their career aspirations, but I was having difficulties identifying and addressing my own. I decided to look into obtaining a career/life coach. I thought I needed to make an investment in my future and I needed help. I spoke with several individuals but Coach Lynn, stood out, and I booked her shortly after our initial consultation. The coaching I have received thus far has been phenomenal, and life-changing. I believe it has changed my career and life's trajectory for the better. This woman can take your career to new heights and bring life back to a barren desert. I highly recommend working with Coach Lynn.
Tom was Great all around. He was able to provide sound advise through career counseling that proved valuable within days of meeting. Tom had examples on hand to assist with choosing formats and how to consolidate years of training & experience to make you look like a Rock Star at your profession.

I am very happy I found Dr Dan among the many other therapists out in the DMV area. He helped me figure out a new career path after working for same employer for over 20 years. He helped me embrace changes by confronting my fears and making the best out of every situation. Thanks Dr. Dan.
She has been helping me find a career path, and has been very good at responding back to my questions, giving great feedback, and giving great suggestions to try and help to get me on my way to finding a path.
Dr. Guckert is an absolute asset for any life or career needs you may need. I have been very impressed with her professionalism, knowledgeability in goal setting/motivation/practical action steps/accountability/etc., and follow up. It has been very easy to communicate with her and to have online sessions. I had honestly felt lost in my life and career, but Dr. Guckert has provided clarity and helped me install confidence in my strengths. I’m looking forward to following through on my business idea. Also, she’s got great business acumen! In any case, if you’re on the fence about a life or career coach, please just contact Dr. Guckert. You’ll be glad you did. I know I am.
I have received several services from Highest Good Wellness, and each experience left me full. The Reiki healing/ Crystal Reiki are my favorite. Sessions are intense and intentional with consultation before. Salimah always prepares time for initial consultation to get to the heart why I am seeking the service and what I hope will be revealed. Salimah always leaves time for reflection at the end of services. I especially appreciate the write up of our sessions and readings that Salimah provides. It’s nice to have something tangible that I can keep and go back to.

I met with Nikki for a series of coaching sessions at a time when I was experiencing fear about my ability to grow my business. Feeling confused and doubtful, my thinking would get stuck in circular arguments, but Nikki has a keen ear. Her questions, her ability to point out and acknowledge areas where I had made some discovery or gain that I perhaps overlooked, and her open and non-judgmental approach allowed me to discover the way forward. I soon began making decisions and planning with confidence and clarity. I can't see where anything was lacking in my experience with Nikki!

The process has worked well, thanks in large part to the insightful and supportive coaching BG provided. Bill, Senior Program Management Advisor
Leslies approach to life-coaching is completely unique and it works. She gets to the heart of the matter, quickly and effectively with an approachable and formidable style. Her personal experience and deep understanding produced new insights that for me, were invaluable. The wisdom in Leslies coaching was key in gaining new vision and moving people through cloudy areas of their life. A key foundation to her success in life coaching is her engaging and active listening skills and ability to identify areas for improvement in a supportive way. I reached out to Leslie for assistance with achieving greater balance in my life as I was juggling five children, a potential career, and managing my own life. I highly recommend Leslie as a Life Coach, she is easy to talk to, honest, direct and has a great sense of humor.
Three hours flew by during my conversation with Maggy, and in that brief time we were able to uncover some critical aspects of my personality that had been inhibiting me from moving forward. Furthermore, we highlighted and aligned my goals and morals to make decisions clear, allowing me to move forward with confidence, lifting a huge weight off my shoulders. During our consultation, Maggy was able to tap into who I was as a person and as a professional allowing me to be fully open and express things about myself that I had not previously acknowledged. Working with Maggy was a huge help during a transitional period in my life.

I would recommend Chris to anyone who wants professional or personal coaching! I've also been impressed with the range of topics we are able to cover together.
