Sensei Mason is both a joy to behold an extremely gifted instructor. His technique is a thing of beauty...extremely crisp and powerful. He is an extremely effective instructor, with exceptional insight on how best to convey to each individual student what they need to learn at their particular stage. He is extremely motivational and will drive you past the point of human capability into what you can only achieve by sheer force of will. He is extremely knowledgeable and always eager to pass on a bit of wisdom or a piece of history. He has an inspirational personality who always lifts up those around him. And, he is a genuinely kind and caring person.

I have been training with Mr.Mason for almost ten years, over the course of this ten years he has demonstrated unparalleled mastery of his martial art, his training is like no other with his incredible motivational skills you want to push yourself harder than you ever have before. His physical conditioning is some of the hardest I've ever done, that's even having playing at the varsity level in multiple high school athletics. All around you would very hard pressed to find a better trainer and instructor than Mr.Mason.

Justin's approach really surprised the kids. I had one student tell me "When I first saw him I thought that he was going to be some rich guy who would tell us about how successful he was and how everything was handed to him. I didn't think he would be able to relate to us. I was really surprised after hearing his story, I was amazed! I thought the assembly was great!" I had so many students come up to me after the assembly and tell me how much they appreciated his honesty. He even offered to be a personal mentor to one of our students who reached out to him after his presentation. Justin and I have kept in touch after the assembly and we plan on working with him further and implementing his mentor program called Champions Circle. (Justin spoke with our 6-12th grade students)

Coach Char is amazing! She has an intuitive nature about her coaching style that equips her to ask the right questions at the right time. Her approach causes you to discover the solutions to your roadblocks from a reflective perspective. I am appreciative for her ability to listen and push me to think beyond my current situation. Her attention to what is NOT being said very helpful when I am stuck or get in my own way. I highly recommend her as a coach for getting unstuck and developing your blindspots as well as your areas of strength.

Me. Warren delivers and then some! He's engaging, entertaining and right on the mark when it comes to tailoring his presentation to the audience. His message works on a number of levels. He is a talented speaker who can involve his audience right from the get go, and hold their interest throughout. When an audience is still talking about the presentation the next day, you know you have a hit. Mr. Warren is beyond gifted.

I have seen Dave Jacobson as a Master of Ceremonies on two occasions and both times he made the event fun; fast moving and entertaining. He is well prepared, in-touch with the organization and members and seems to have a good sense of timing. Dave has a unique way of getting everyone involved in the festivities by mixing his speaking with his musical talents and I would recommend him for any large event that calls for a professional to make the event extra special.

I have found Keegan Maloch to be an exceptional fitness trainer. As a Nutrition Consultant for 30 years, I have many clients who go to him for fitness training after meeting their nutritonal goals. On occassion I have groups of upwards to 10 people and he is able to design programs to individually meet their needs in one session. I have some clients with joint problems that can't jump around too much that he taylors programs for to get results without the strain. I like the vigorous workout he has designed for me. As a former dancer I enjoy a more challanging work out. I am very impressed by his versatillity with clients. As a business owner, he takes a leading role in innovative and creative ways to build his business. I enjoy our partnership together and find him very fair in business dealings.

Keegan was always a huge encourager when it came to my fitness. He was tough on me when he needed to be and pushed me harder than I'd ever push myself. I liked the fact that he'd often work out right beside me. If we had to do laps around the block - he was right there with me!
