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!
Rita is a public speaker who captivates her audience! She is a dynamic, motivational speaker and exceptional life coach!
I recently started training with Carlos and hes exceeded all my expectations. Ive been training for over 20 years and am in pretty good shape, but wanted to get my body to the next level. Since I never worked with a trainer before, I was not sure what to expect. Carlos is truly amazing and I mean it! He has a terrific demeanor, exceptional motivator, inspiring and has innovative approaches to driving results. In a short period of time, he has taught me creative methods to shocking my body. Additionally, he provides guidelines for clean eating along with a training regimen you can do when youre not with him, to keep the momentum going. I really believe what sets him apart from other trainers is that he genuinely cares During one of my workouts, I arrived on an empty stomach and immediately, he brought me a protein shake to ensure I was properly fueled up for a hardcore workout!! He wont EVER let you give up and does an excellent job at picking you up, when you are down. I would LOVE to train with him Forever & Ever, because, YES, hes that GOOD! Everyone needs a Carlos in their life. -Cherline Beveridge
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 :)
IK Fitness provides a wellness coaching program for all ages and fitness levels. Contract Ian for my companies yearly retreat going on a few years now and the changes my staff has seen (including myself and my children) is incredible.

Highly recommend Ian to anyone interested in boosting their health to the next level. Thank you for giving me back all those years Ian!!
Training with Mason may be the best investment you can make in yourself. He's been able to help me fully understand how to work out properly ensuring that old injuries do not occur again. He shares his expertise and his experience with you to make the sessions fun, challenging, and a learning experience. He is not only professional, incredibly knowledgeable about exercises and movement but Mason's charisma is infectious. He truly wants to see you succeed, maybe even more than you do. He sends awesome motivational messages to his trainees and always follows up. If you want a life changing trainer, Mason is your guy!!
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.
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.
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.
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
Lauren is an awesome trainer to work with! I look forward to our twice-weekly sessions and get really upset when I have to miss one. My favorite thing about Lauren is that she is really mindful of people's struggles and insecurities while training. For example, one of my biggest problems training-wise is being injury prone after 2 decades of high-level sports that have wreaked havoc on my body. Lauren is wonderful about helping me work around my injuries and keeping me fit and strong despite them. I have been working back from a rotator cuff injury and recently regained full mobility in the shoulder again. Despite the limitations of my injury Lauren has helped me work around them and develop some killer abs while I waited for it to heal! She has a holistic approach to health/fitness that includes nutrition advice and occasional monitoring (if you need it)! She has spent a lot of time outside of our normal training hours helping me find protein sources to balance my diet while avoiding some of the less healthy options out there (I have a nut allergy that makes getting sufficient protein in my diet more difficult). I really love working with her and would highly recommend training with her. Even if you are nervous due to injury, dietary struggles, or just generally fear the gym you should really give it a try...it's so much better when you have someone cheering you on!
Working with Sam has been one of the best experiences with a health professional I have ever had. For someone who has had issues with food and weight for the large majority of their life it was wonderful to come into a space/relationship with someone who not only listened to what my goals were, but was also eager to break down why past efforts failed and tackle a healthy lifestyle in a manner that was achievable and sustainable. I have a rather hectic work life that has me working long hours in various parts of the world and Sam has been a wonderful force in helping me compartmentalize the various pieces of my day-to-day so that I can keep on track with my longterm goals. She has also listened to me express certain frustrations and from those is able to help designate where they stem from and how best to remedy them. In short, I started working with Sam as a means to tackle physical health and it has organically grown into a full 360º coaching experience that is focused not just on the work we do but how I feel while we do it. A+++
Anyone looking for a personal trainer without the intimidation of a personal trainer should try out Mike. He really knows his stuff and can adapt his workouts to you. He also has done his research. Over a year ago, he visited the strength and conditioning coaches and trainers of a local professional football team to gain more insight. Great guy!
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.
I was initially skeptical about "life" coaching. Why would I need it if everything seemed ok"? On my journey with Eli I discovered that ok is acceptable, but abundance is a conscious choice and there for the taking - if I wanted it. And not only did I want it - I found it. Eli is incredibly smart and intuitive, creative and able to think out of the box yet very structured in his approach. I felt his experience in professional sports was unusual and refreshing- and greatly benefitted our interaction. I liked the elegance of his thinking process, his flexibility and his ability to listen and ask the right questions. Many times over, he challenged me to think outside of my comfort zone. Identifying and addressing certain issues and hence developing strategies together was an amazing process which made me feel empowered and in control.
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.
Patricia Diesel's Life coaching approach and unique one-on-one partnership offered a different technique. Her phone coaching with my decision to invest time to a new way of thinking, preparing and taking action not only brought great success for emptying my storage unit on time, but a transformation in me happened as well. I became empowered and applied the reality of my abilities, values, and accountability to repeatedly bring about a positive result. I take away from this a tool box of skills unique to my strengths, abilities and mindset for success is ready to bring out for all future projects and goals. Her instruction was wonderful but it was her encouragement that brought life to it. Thank you, Patricia!
"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
Hadas is an excellent, motivational coach, personal trainer and fitness expert. She has guided me to both lose weight and begin a fitness program different from anything I have ever done. We have been working on weight lifting, getting outdoors and looking at the meals and snacks I have been consuming. She comes with many fresh ideas and advise that is very helpful. I recommend her to anyone who is looking to make a healthy change in their lifestyle.
