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.
Rhonda is a wonderful personal trainer! It was obvious from the first time I met her that she knows her craft very well. My workouts are constantly changing to meet my changing physical abilities. She takes into account my lifestyle (full-time working mother of two kids) and plans workouts and diets according to what is realistic for me to do. She is incredibly flexible in terms of time and location of workouts, which is a huge plus for me. And, as icing on the cake, she is just a good-hearted person to be around.
I am experienced martial artist and in my experience Coach Evis Bejko is the best Coach i have EVER had. It's not only the professional side but also the personality of Coach Evis Bejko, he is a very humble and patient person that gives more than 100% of his everything to the student and his knowledge is really outstanding.
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 :)
Anna is a great yoga instructor. She is a very nice person that you can learn from for a healthier lifestyle. She is a great for fitness motivation and for general health too. Love my early morning yoga sessions before I head to work for another day full of meetings .😊
My husband and I have been training with Gil & Trinnie since June now and we continue to do so! They are so good at what they do - we are seeing results in both weight loss & getting stronger. They are very flexible with our fluctuating schedules and tailor the work outs to our bodies. It's hard work and they do push us as needed but are also caring if it's just too much for us sometimes . Both Trinnie & Gil are so enjoyable to work with and helpful with diet as well. They've changed our mindset and lifestyle for the better and highly recommend anyone in the area that needs help working out, on weight lossz, strength training, etc. They're the best!!
Working with Kathy is awesome- I do see myself working with her for a long time. Love her coaching and encouragement as well. Kathy, trianing is all about proper form and no injury! And that is key for proper weight-lifing!!! One can get awesome training without the overly soreness- muscles are worked without the extreme shred. Love it! Great workout and great coach. Thank you !!!
I'm not one to write reviews.... ever... (because I never have time) but on this occasion, I decided to MAKE time because my results (with Mobile Fitness, specifically Erica Straub, my trainer) have been, life changing and it would be a beyond selfish to not share. I initially contacted Mobile Fitness via an app and the follow up was instant and consistent. I needed to do something different as I was in a rut and I was aligned to the most experienced, understanding, thorough, knowledgeable and on-point trainer of my life, Erica. This girl is AMAZING and changed my life! My goal was to shed the pounds, shred my body and most importantly, learn to eat (healthy) without depriving myself or my lifestyle. I'm a challenge because I have been yo-yo dieting for years and doing fitness competitions (in a very unhealthy manner) so I needed a flexible trainer, who understood my challenges, to meet me at 5am, in my home, 3 days a week. Words can't express what Erica has done for me! She has been incredible. She has helped transform my mind and body. I am stronger, more toned, make wiser food choices and have not had to give up my wine!!!! I am obsessed with my trainer who, after only 6 months, I now consider a friend.
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.
Kylie was really professional, kind, attentive and caring. The space was beautiful and provided a safe, relaxed environment. We talked before and after the session itself to address my specific needs and the advise and guidelines I received in addition to the healing is already helping me release emotional blocks and live more according to my intentions. The session itself was relaxing and comfortable. I would highly recommend her services! Best regards, Hilde
Tommy has helped me create a brand new lifestyle of eating. My weight is down 75 lbs. I feel more amazing then ever in my life. I'd recommend him 100%.
Nick made each lesson engaging and fun. I found myself looking forward to the next lesson. He is extremely knowledgeable and always found a way to make the lesson relatable. He provided me with many useful test taking tips and tricks. As a result of Nick's coaching, I experienced a significant increase in my test scores.
Kevin is a great coach! I would recommend him to anyone. He pushed me to my limits and never gave up on me. If you are looking to see results and be motivated by someone, Kevin is your guy!
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.
Gabriella's knowledge and experience as a life coach are surpassed only by her creativity as she makes it fun and easy to make her lessons meaningful and applicable in our daily lives. For me saying out loud to someone, this is what I want to do, started the process. Knowing that I had to be accountable motivated me. Gabriella suggested I set my goals incrementally; this is something I would have not done myself. As a result of this, I attained my goals and feel better about myself. Clearly, her enthusiasm is a testament to her commitment to helping others make healthier lifestyle changes.
Michael was extremely patient and thorough. He listened to my needs and helped me understand what I needed to do in order to achieve my goals. He has a very kind, understanding yet firm approach to his practice. He also created a tailored regimen for both diet and exercise. I am feeling much more energized and seeing the results of both his and my efforts. I highly recommend Michael to anyone who is interested in achieving a healthier body and lifestyle!
Where do I begin, Manny is one of, if not, the best personal trainers around. Manny first approached me a few months before I decided to start training with him. I was reluctant and nervous at first since I had never trained with anyone before and was unsure of what to expect. Manny is very passionate about what he does; he is honest, personable, knowledgeable, dedicated, very professional and not to mention funny. I've been training with Manny 2 times a week since May 2017. Not only is he all in with me during our sessions, but he also provides me workouts to do on my own on the days that we do not meet. He has helped me to become more comfortable in a gym environment and excited to workout. He continues to help me tremendously and motivates me to be the best that I can be. My whole lifestyle and mind set has changed for the better. I owe it all to Manny. I am in the best shape of my life and am getting stronger every day. Not only has my body been transformed for the better. I am no longer reluctant, but excited to train with Manny and to see how much better I will get as our sessions continue. I am grateful for how much Manny pushes me to reach my potential. He is always making sure that I am okay after every exercise. I have learned so much that I am at the point where I can now spot if someone is in the wrong form or doing an exercise incorrectly. Manny is a true professional who cares about you and your results. I not only consider him my personal trainer, but also a friend. If you are looking to better yourself and get results with a compassionate, skilled, all-around great guy, I highly recommend you contact Manny ASAP. 😊
I met Robert McLean at a previous job that we worked at during college. Right off the bat, I knew that this guy was someone who could potentially change my life, even before he was officially in the business of lifestyle coaching. Robert is a mastermind at what he does. As Robert began to learn more about my life, habits and general situation, he suggested small changes that he believed would benefit me. I was not in good shape. I did not know the first thing about style. My dating life was a mess, as I constantly lowered myself and settled for people that embarrass me to think about. Looking back now, I was pretty miserable. As his first client, I gave him total control and put my trust into him fully, which was a bit scary initially, but I felt I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. At the end of the day, he definitely delivered and I immediately saw results. His in depth knowledge and life experience helped to guide me through the process of Fitness, Image, and Dating. Throughout the process, he began to give me new hope for my future. His bubbly personality made this six month journey fun for me, but he also challenged me in ways that I did not expect. He is very reliable, trustworthy, and uses methods that will leave you with a new-found confidence. My life has changed drastically, as I now have a consistent gym routine, an excellent diet, as well as a stylish wardrobe that fits my personality and emphasizes my attributes. Because of this, my dating life has been superb, as I have met and dated a number of beautiful women and no longer have to lower my standards to find a date. If you are unhappy with your body, style, or dating life, I guarantee that you can turn things around. If I was able to, then I believe that anyone can with that extra push and extra motivation. I highly recommend Robert and his service. I know that he will build on his already great ideas and continue to change people's lives.
Priya is like your own personal cheerleader. She is not only a health wikipedia who knows all about food and nutrition, but is also vastly knowledgeable about all sorts of holistic healthcare methods like natural supplementation and treatments like acupuncture. She is really invested in her clients' health, and she doesn't just dole out advice; she works with you to help you learn what works best for you and your lifestyle. However, if you need a push, she'll definitely give you that too! Changing habits is difficult, and as someone with a chronic condition, it was easy to lose motivation or feel like my progress was going backwards, but Priya was always there to remind me of how far I have come and to help me get through my ups and downs. She is great about checking in frequently and making sure I am steady on the path to achieving my health goals. And whenever I had hiccups, she would remind me it's ok to be human, and that to mess up is alright, and also part of the wellness journey. Consistency is important, and there is always tomorrow to make up for the stumbles. Without Priya's guidance and dedication, I would not have been able to find the self-confidence to get healthier. She has really helped to change my life for the better, and I cannot recommend her services enough.
Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.
Mackenzie was outstanding. This was my furst ecperience with yoga abd i am a 68 year old man. She was very patient snd understanding while at the same time coached me into doing those yoga positions that would help me in the areas where I needed it the most. She was wonderful
