I decided to hire a Life Coach to talk to 22 young men and women in their early '20s who were uncertain about their future as they were entering the real world. They were anxious, afraid, unsure, many with low self-esteem (though many had done great in their respective colleges) and just didn't know what steps were necessary to not only blend in but excel in their jobs or positions they were looking for in their fields. We had the pleasure of bringing in Mr. Stone who with his larger than life personality, confidence and assurance woke the group up and explained that there was a path out of the woods, you just had to be shown where the clearing was and the rest would take care of itself. He listened carefully to many of the young people, and made sure everyone who spoke felt like their question meant something, assimilated down the fundamentals that were collectively necessary to get them to realize there was an answer; and more than one answer to their issue(s). Through his entrepreneurial background as an Investment Banker to a Producer in Hollywood, to a Private Jet Executive to a Manager of the top 100 Poker Players in the world to being an International Real Estate Executive doing transactions worldwide; his talk just captivated the audience with stories of the down and out (some well known) who turned their lives around using the right tools and told those in the audience they were far ahead of the earlier mentioned people he spoke about in his stories; and he knows exactly how to tell a story that not only moved the youngsters but everyone in the room. He is one of those people that just knows how to say the right thing to the right person and the energy level and enthusiasm just grew and became contagious which was quite a feeling. Though he is a Certified Life Coach which the youngsters never really cared to much about but it seems that his "real" experiences got the students emotionally invested in him and in the fact that they had a plan and map that was the beginning to getting themselves to where they want to go. I can't think of anyone I know who could have turned this room around so when they left the speech they felt better about themselves and their futures. He is the Real Deal!
Working with Rhonda has been an awesome experience. Personal training sessions are challenging and never boring. She is very knowledgeable on the body and will answer any question that is asked. She is very accommodating with flexible hours. She shows a great concern for one's health, wellness and performance. Whatever your goals are, RJ's Personal Fitness will definitely assist you in achieving them to the fullest. I highly recommend.
I'm very satisfied with Design Fitness - professional, flexible and effective. The training service is for my mother who has diabetes among other health conditions. Design Fitness comes to her house and been a huge reason for her coming back to health. Dee is wonderful to adjust to moms needs and speed, yet still pushing her to do amazing progress. My mother is very pleased, we even upped the amount of weekly sessions. Very pleasant experience, highly recommend!
If you want to see real results from training, Coach Evis is definitely the person to go to. I used to windowshop as cardio and he showed me there's so much more I could achieve he's awesome
Tom has the unique ability to provide Heath coaching and life coaching. This prompted me to return to him after 12 months away. He is very prompt, very in tune with my needs, and look forward to teaming with him to make great strides this year.
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 .😊
Signing up with NBI Fitness is probably one of the best things I could've ever done for myself. Trinnie and Gilbert are great and are currently helping me reach my dream health/body goals. The trainers truly care about their clients and are always pushing me to make sure I am doing all that is necessary to lose weight, tone up and build a healthy life style for myself. They also tell you what you should and should not be eating according to your fitness goal. Most importantly, I work and go to school full time therefore, it is difficult to work out with such a hectic schedule, BUT they literally make sure to work with whatever times works best for me even if its going out of their way. The cost, overall results and amazing customer service is really worth it and would recommend NBI Fitness to anyone who wants to tone up, lose weight, and get on track with their fitness goals.
Carlos is a great coach and makes sure I'm doing everything correct. He pays close attention to how I'm doing and is very helpful. I am very satisfied that I chose him to show me how to get some sort of work out routine started. Very satisfied.
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 can’t say enough wonderful things about MFG. I have PCOS and as a result, losing the weight has been tougher than ever. I’ve tried various trainers and other exercise regiments over the years. Nothing worked and nothing could help keep me motivated. Fast forward to me finding MFG. Within a day of posting a search for a trainer, Erika from MFG reached out. Erika was so thoughtful, easy to talk to, and dedicated to setting me up with a trainer that could work best with me. Moreover, my schedule tends to be utterly inconsistent and all over the place. Despite it taking me a couple of month to sign up (I had surgery shortly after talking to Erika), I was so focused on getting my health and fitness back on the track to wellness. Even during my surgery and hospitalization, Erika sent me text messages that gave me motivation and support. Truly, Erika, if you’re reading this, that meant the world to me! Once I got clearance to workout, I was set up with Ashley, who in one word is AWESOME. She has PCOS too, so she’s able to give me tips about eating a clean diet that’s good for PCOS sufferers. On top of that, Ashley is so flexible with what times and days she can come by. As someone who thought they hated to workout, thanks to Ashley, I genuinely look forward to post-workout soreness. She got a girl who works 12+ hour days, to work out 6x a week. In short, i can’t say enough wonderful things about MFG. They’re truly caring, super- knowledgeable, motivating and life-changing!
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....
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
Tom has a very different approach to health and fitness. I find his approach very helpful and effective for weight loss, and more importantly, lasting vitality!
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.
Very positive experience and will definitively continue working with Mike and his team. Very dynamic workout with core, quads, upper body and boxing moves. Very professional and genuine interest in client health and wellness and meeting goals.
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.
Throughout this hour long training session I am pushed physically and mentally. The sessions contain all body workouts/exercises. After the workout I genuinely feel better about myself (even though I'm always sore). However, within the workouts, there are always nice conversations that make the workout go by faster. I have been training with Mike for about two and a half years and with his help I gained helpful nutritional and fitness information. He helped me lose over thirty pounds with rigorous workouts and a healthy eating plan. Aside from the workouts, Mike is always very flexible with planning times to workout and is always willing to help you with certain aspects of your workout/health that you want to work on. Overall, the sessions are very hard and hit every part of your body (arms, legs, abs etc). I highly recommend working out with Mike if you are looking to train for higher performance levels, to get in shape, or to just better your health.
Having had several trainers in the past, I can say definitely that Jeremy is an exceptionally skilled and effective trainer and demonstrates skills that other trainers just do not possess. Jeremy has great interpersonal and customer service skills and is a delight to work with. What really sets him apart, is his intricate knowledge of the mechanics of the human body and to intervene to achieve optimal functioning. Jeremy is perhaps as or more skilled than the physical therapists with which I have worked. He is constantly attentive to posture, subtle mechanics, balance, and monitors the effectiveness of mechanics (not just brute strength). Jeremy is excellent for any level of fitness or experience. I am a life long athlete that is recovering from severe illness and muscle atrophy. My partner is over 65 and previous hated exercise. In a short period of time, Jeremy has made tremendous positive impact in our physical (and mental) health and fitness. I recommend him with incredible enthusiasm.
I am dentist that, after hours of performing surgery, needed massage therapy & stretching for my hands, arms, & neck. WellThrive Elite helped me a lot with stress & pain relief, which contributes to me helping patients in my dental practice. After sitting for many hrs required for my work, WellThrive Elite helped me with the best fitness for weight loss & general health. Good company.
Priya is a great health coach. She personalized my journey to my target weight with realistic goals and a diet plan. She is understanding of the struggle a person can go through and is kind and is a good listener. A lot of that is because she went through a successful massive weight loss herself. She knows how important it is to be resolute and stay on the right path to a healthy weight loss. She believes in constant communication through appointments and through emails. Thanks Priya!
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
