After trying crossfit, UFC, fitclub, team sports, and a few personal trainers, I decided to expand my search and am very happy I did. I found Jaisen and he's been a pleasure to work with so far. From the start, he helped me develop concrete and measurable goals (one of them being get back to soccer in the spring). With other trainers, the idea was just to "get in shape," which could mean anything to anyone. The service Jaisen provides is very personal, from scheduling to working out the right parts of the body in the most effective ways. He goes at the pace that is best for you, but pushes you and is all around good company. I was also looking for a trainer that I could get along with and feel comfortable with, at my not so comfortable weight. He's all around motivating, understanding, hard working and professional. The price is great as well. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
My first meeting with Craig was great, the level of professionalism he has was what help me pick him from other options, his energy, level of commitment and attitude are amazing. He tailored my training in what I need to improve and i feel better everyday. He is really one of a kind, speaking coach, life coach and carrear coach, he is the best
I had an amazing experience with Rhonda. The session is never boring and it's in a open nonjudgmental environment. She is flexible with your schedule. Truly the most "personal" personal training I have had!
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!
Carlos is the secret, the real deal. At first I was hesitant about paying for a trainer. I thought I knew it all about exercise being fairly athletic. I also thought that only celebrities had personal trainers and paid dearly for them until I met Carlos. I didnt just get a fitness trainer I have an accessible counselor that guides me in exercise, nutrition, and everyday conditioning. When I travel he sends me exercise regimes for the hotel gym and constantly advises me on dieting and working out. As far as results: Ive lost 52 lbs. and have great energy. Carlos is the real deal. If you dont believe it, just ask me.
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 :)
Holie is a team of one. Not only did she declutter my home, she organized my life and will always be a part of it😇🙋🏻
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.
Had the pleasure of working with Toni a couple of years ago. Extremely patient and very understanding with my needs. She never made me feel as if I wasn't losing the weight that she expected and always gave me great guidance. She always had time to listen to my struggles throughout the week and was never judge mental on my failures. She always encourage me to do better and I felt as if she was more of a friend then a coach. I would always recommend Toni to anyone that needs help losing weight and maintaining it off....
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.
Anna was an amazing coach! If you need a personal trainer, she is definitely the one you need! Always on time, she adapted the training to my needs and was always giving me amazing advice. Plus, very friendly and professional!
Kevin Burns has a depth of knowledge, compassion and understanding that I haven’t seen and or experienced in a long time. He gave me lots of personal advice to help me get “unstuck” at a time I needed it most. With his advice I was able to turn things around. His words came from a deep place and has helped me “change course” in many areas of my life. He’s warm and very professional and has a good heart. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking assistance. He’s an amazing ‘Life Coach’ ...Keith Gitens
Dreanne was AMAZING to work with!! He went above and beyond to make the visuals come to life. Went out of his way to bring me the right props, even thought it was not a part of the deal. My friends had a great time on the shoot. They loved him so much that they want to see him every time they go to the city. I can not say enough great things about him. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I'll admit, I didn't know what to expect when I first went to work with Larry. It was my first experience with hypnosis for any purpose but Larry was not only professional but a calming influence throughout the entire process. Starting with our initial phone consultation to the moment I sat down in his office, I felt like I was in good hands. More importantly - the treatment works! I went in with a specific problem I was looking to work on and, after an hour of his treatment, I immediately noticed a change and started feeling better. It felt like a great burden was lifted from my psyche and I was looking at the world through a different set of eyes. Any doubts that I may have had of his method actually working were immediately vanquished and I began to live my life free of the demons that previously haunted me on a daily basis. My wife and I are scheduled to work with Larry in the near future to continue to strengthen our communication and conflict resolution skills, and I will definitely work with him again personally. I highly recommend this service and cannot speak enough about the results.
Use them for yoga and Pilates. Their coaches are AMAZING, professional. Best investment I ever made! Worth every penny and superior to other trainers I've used. Best value!
I have worked with Jim for nearly 6 months and I can't emphasize enough how incredible the journey has been! After a family tragedy, I decided I wanted to commit myself to positive outlets and was introduced to Jim. I played a Division I sport in college, but by no means was I an endurance athlete. Working with Jim and sticking to his principals literally transformed my life. Jim is extremely knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated to each and every client he works with, individualizing each training session, pouring over performance data and helping you reach your goals. Jim is not a "trainer". Working with Jim, and committing yourself to his philosophy ("pillars") can most closely be equated to a lifestyle overhaul. Working with Jim has propelled me to the best physical, mental and spiritual condition of my life and only after a relatively short time together. For anyone looking to commit themselves to a significantly differentiated health and wellness journey, Jim Balcom is the answer.
Shawn is a terrific improvisation coach. He is very good at creating a safe and trusting environment where players can thrive. He always comes up with great warm up exercises and keeps the practice exciting and fun. I particularly value his suggestions and feedback, which always help me be more in the moment and follow my instincts.
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.
My experience with Patricia involved personal life coaching sessions on a professional development level over a two year period. Patricia' mentoring helped me to significantly achieve professional and personal growth through her knowledge and expertise. Her one-on-one coaching provided strategies for me to implement to reach my goals professionally. Her trust and insight was invaluable to me to achieve a positive work-life balance and a job satisfaction!
"Christina had explained the benefit of organizing your LIFE once you finish organizing your space. Once we finished organizing my house, (which was life changing because it brought me so much joy!) we started our lifestyle coaching sessions. It’s the perfect transition for me to address thoughts and ideas that I always think about, but never act upon. By working with Christina I have realized that dreams can come true! We are working together to bring them to life! By putting my goals and dreams into categories and then prioritizing them, Christina helped me formulate steps to capture the experiences that might have escaped, because life is short! I am so lucky and happy to be working with you!!! I LOVE your youth, spirit and wisdom. You are truly something." ~Cathy, Wyckoff NJ
