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
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.
Tommy has coached me completely over the phone/ text/ email / Skype. He has motivated and held me accountable to all food and water intake goals. He really keeps me on track; his coaching program is like no other I have seen. Great job. Down 45 lbs.
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.
I found Jeanine quite by chance one day listening to a podcast. Something in her voice and approach resonated with me and I sent her an email. Cut to eight weeks later and I am bang slap in the middle of a successful and fulfilling JNC coaching course! Due to my location we hold weekly calls which work really well. It feels so good to be doing this coaching not only because I am accessing so many new tools/techniques/literature and expanding my learning but also because I see a positive shift in my daily life. Like anything it requires commitment and you have to want to do the work. Jeanine is the one who gets you to where you need to be to do this. She is uplifting, positive, soothing, caring and switched on! An amazingly skilled coach who works at lightening speed and tunes in effortlessly (or so it seems) to you! I would highly recommend anyone who wants to invest some time into their learning and self development to take a chance and engage with Jeanine - you won't regret it.
Rick Gioiello has an intuitive/innate sense to coaching among other talents, and knows where the work is needed. With upfront honesty and intense compassion , he gives advice/direction making one feel comfortable and allowing that vulnerable side to shine, I have personally felt I have learned something new after sessions with him, and as a result booked a role on a short film. He has also helped me with audition clips and is an awesome photographer . He takes his work seriously and passionately and it shows brilliantly. -Gina Rados-
Brent is a good communicator and has always been very professional in his demeanor, he is always on time and easy to schedule appointments with. I was a little nervous when I went to my first appointment, but have gotten much more comfortable over time. Brent is very present in the room, he gives me a lot of eye-contact, and shows genuine compassion. While it can sometimes be difficult, the work that I do with Brent has allowed me to get to know myself better, and has significantly improved the relationships I value most in my life. His office, while very simple and unadorned, has a warm atmosphere, and is very conveniently located. I have found my work with Brent to be very valuable, and highly recommend him as a coach.
Gary is the most incredible life coach in the world. His ability to respond to things that I say and point out the truths that lie beneath my own meaning is like no other experience I ever had. I have known him for 16 months now and he has helped me more than anyone I have ever known. You have got to meet this man to believe what he is capable of. If you are in need of counseling or a life coach there is no better.
Dr Chece took my entire team through a wonderful planning no session. He explored emotional intelligence, intervand intra personal skills, social styles and communication. He did both group and one on one meetings. He is a true professional, and a caring person who had a lasting impact on our team
Physician and business owner here. I’ve known the head trainer at WellThrive Elite for many years. His passion to help is admirable. I have personally used WellThrive Elite services for myself and have referred many others to them. If you are dealing with any kind of stress, want to lose weight, or need to kickstart your life in various ways, I highly recommend seeking the help of WellThrive Elite!
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.
I had the extreme pleasure of working with Gillian at Shiftability Coaching. This was my first experience with any type of coaching. As a parent, I was completely distraught over a decision to have my young children enroll in public school in the suburbs or stay in the city and keep them in private school. Gillian's thought provoking questions and exercises allowed me to differentiate between my feelings of fear and instinct. Within 4 sessions I was able to make a decision with joy and confidence! Gillian is very kind, friendly and easy to talk to. I felt her guidance came from a place of genuine and authentic interest in my journey. I honestly cannot say enough about my experience. Thank you Gillian. I felt as though I was talking to a dear friend!
With her guidance, tools, and support, Kim has helped shape who I am today through her life coaching. She has walked with me through different paths of life including my always changing career interests and has taught me to welcome new opportunities with excitement and an open mind. Kim’s enthusiasm and fun approach towards life has given me a more positive and open outlook to my life that will follow me everyday! I am so grateful to have worked with her and can definitely say that she has impacted my life in amazing ways.
He's done a really good job in getting me out of my comfort zone and getting me to get open with my emotions. This is definitely different than previous life coaches and I've enjoyed it a lot :)
It's rare that you come across a coach as skillful or genuinely interested as Barry. I had the pleasure of working with Barry on career and life coaching over the period of a few months in the middle of 2017. Almost every time we talked, I uncovered something about myself that I had never quite put into words before, and his funny little stories from his own life always left me with a smile on my face. Barry has earned my highest recommendation to anyone looking for career or life coaching.
I found Evan’s coaching service to be helpful in my job search. In my situation, I felt completely stuck. Evan helped get me "un-stuck" by asking all the right questions allowing me to come to the conclusion on my own time and in my own way. He watched me go through all the iterations of, "do I want this?" "is this right for me?" "whose interest am I serving here?" until I was finally able to conclude it was time to move on. When it came time to apply, I got excellent coaching on my resume and cover letter as well as my approach to the search. I even felt confident enough to cold-call some employers and eventually took a job with one of those who wasn't advertising an open position but just happened to be looking. Evan has an easy personal communication style. After the initial awkwardness that comes with bearing your fears to someone you barely know, he quickly became a trusted adviser. I have ADHD, and need structure and deadlines to keep me accountable. Sometimes, I bristle at this structure and deadlines and push back. But Evan never let me forget that I am ultimately holding myself accountable to myself. Setting deadlines and creating structure just became a part of our regular discussions. That was immensely helpful! Most importantly, Evan was able to meet me where I am mentally and emotionally until we could walk together toward my goals. You can probably tell that I'm a fan. I would recommend him to friends and colleagues especially those looking to make a change and want to put their best foot forward, be it personal or professionally.
Working with Ellen has been an absolute pleasure! This was my first experience with a life coach and her experience, along with sound advice, has been incredibly insightful. She is a straight shooter, professional, and great listener with an attentive memory and desire to help her clients achieve their goals. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to take serious action in their life and/or ensure they are on the right path to succeed.
My experience with the Mcknight Coaching Lab was extremely satisfactory. David has helped me be more confident and assertive, not just in my career, but also in my personal life. He taught me the skills to go after the things I want in life. It was after he helped me revamp my resume that I got a call to interview for my last position. Even when I got discouraged while looking for an apartment, it was David who encouraged me and gave me the determination not to give up, and the next day I found one. David is able to give the needed encouragement and support, yet not get overly involved in your personal life. He is always extremely professional, while being warm and personable......David himself also has an impressive resume, being employed by fortune 500 companies, and educated by top universities......

Sherry is professional, prompt, and intuitive. I enjoyed working with her. My goals were met and I appreciate her encouragement along the way.
I've been to the other Personal Trainers; The dime-a-dozen, amped-up fitness freaks, of which there are so very many in gyms nowadays. People with frozen smiles and that perpetual groaning noise caught in their throat after they say what they think you want to hear. People who will tell you anything to make you feel like you're making progress. People who coddle you and make you feel good about yourself so that you continue to give them money for their unlicensed, unregulated business that they conduct with little to no training requirements or expertise. Such is the usual business practice of the Hollywood Personal Trainer. I'd hate to sound clichéd, folks, but Guillermo is not the average Personal Trainer. He shouldn't even be in the same category. At this point, I find that referring to him as a "Personal Trainer" belittles him due to the mere association it creates with the rest of the fitness morons in this town. Guillermo is, to me, a remarkable individual with whom it is a privilege to train with and be helped by. Unfortunately, that's not a catchy title but it captures the spirit of his practice far more than "Personal Trainer". He is not here to tell you what you want to hear. In fact, you're probably going to hear a bunch of stuff you didn't want to hear. About your diet. About your posture. About your moods and your personality and the way you conduct your life. He approaches you from a clinical, almost mathematical point of view. Just by looking at your musculature and the tightness of your joints and nerves, at the way you move and run and interact, he can somehow see the kind of life you lead and the kind of person you are and, make no mistake, to Guillermo, that is important. He's not trying to improve your body. He's trying to improve you. Body and mind. Hardware and Software. Improve it, shape it. To him, it's all connected, as I've come to learn that it should be. Let me explain; He will constantly look at every aspect of your life. Your diet. Your exercise. Your work place. Your personal life. All of these things come into play and he evaluates all of it and forms a plan to improve every facet of your life. And he will explain to you, in detail, why and how these parts of your life must change. Get ready to absorb some info, because he does his homework. He is learned and very informed in everything that he does. This kind of dedication from a "Personal Trainer" is not the norm. I cannot stress it enough when I say he doesn't NEED to do what he does, he does it out of pleasure and kindness. And as much as he might seem like the hard-ass, he's a softie. He puts a LOT of emotional investment into you. More than many people should. So much that you won't want to let him down. It's not a guilt thing, he actually cares. He puts effort into you, tries to help you in any way he can, professionally and personally because he approaches you like a PERSON, not like a body or a client. That's why he's so effective. He tries to fix problems from the source. And he feels more like a good friend than a coach. The only reminder that I'm a client of a business is that every few weeks he mentions that I'll have to make a payment soon. The rest of the time, he approaches me with a balance of professionalism and friendship that is exactly what I need to turn my life around. Which brings me to my final point; By far, the most important thing you must take away from this review is that he will stress that it is YOU who's got to make the change. YOU who has to put the work in and the belief. I know I've made him sound like some flip-a-switch solution to your problems, he's not. He just gives you the support and information you need for YOU to become the solution. And that's worth a whole lot more than he charges. Before Guillermo, I was half-assing life. I was just trying my best. Now, I'm trying to be the best. There's a big difference there.
