If you want to change your body, live a healthier life and not hate your time in the gym…work with Gladiator Strong Fitness. Shawn is one of the best in the business of personal training. He doesn’t go through the motions and he’s extremely knowledgeable about what you need to do to be a better you. I’m in the TV news business and it’s important for me to have a personal trainer who is flexible with my changing schedule. Shawn is not only flexible but he’s able to come to you! I wasn’t sure if I had the equipment needed in my building’s gym but Shawn quickly reassured me that he can make it work no matter the gym. His experience and professionalism are refreshing and he provides the motivation to keep you going. The initial assessment where Shawn got to know me and my goals really set us off on the right start.The price of working with Shawn is one that can’t be beat. His rates are great and the best in the region. I have to admit when I picked Shawn, I like a trainer who is a model of his personal training. Shawn talks the talk and definitely walks the walk. I highly recommend Gladiator Strong Fitness.

A great personal trainer: he customized our sessions to exactly what I needed (very much a beginner, so we had simple goals like 10 push ups, etc) and we've been working our way up since. He's also super flexible with your schedule. My schedule was nuts for the 10 months I've worked with him, but he was always willing to move things around to accommodate -- and since he was willing to come to me and work out in my building's gym, I never had an excuse to not get my blood pumping! Every session was different so I never got bored, but they were all intense work outs. Shawn is not the type of trainer that gets down on the floor and yells at you to keep going, but he encourages you when you need it. He stands back and lets you concentrate on doing your thing, usually only piping up to correct form. Between sets, he's very nice and pleasant to talk to. I'm definitely in the best shape of my life thanks to Shawn! I especially recommend him to anyone who feels a little lost in the gym -- he's definitely increased my comfort level and knowledge about working out.

I strongly recommend Shawn as your personal trainer. I am a 37 year old with a very sedentary job and completely out of shape . I have been working with Shawn for 6 weeks, thrice a week. My problem with a one size fitness program like p90x or a group class is that I cannot actually do them - i either injure myself or get so exhausted I cant do my work - so I can stick to a program and dont see results. Shawn took all of this into account and designed a custom program for me. He pushes me (but not to break point), mixes up the routine (that helps me stay interested) and offers a good explanation for why I am doing something. The diet plan is great. He is very professional and will email you meeting requests to schedule time and is on time for class. Thanks to Shawn, 6 weeks of rigorous exercise is the most I have done in my life - I hope to keep this streak going.

I am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

Coach Lynn Johnson is excellent. I am an older worker over 50 who needed to make a transition from my career. She researched and identified transferable skills in a career that is lucrative and enjoyable. She wrote my cover letter, resume and coached me. I got hired by 4 offices and had only applied to 5! This has changed my life! She is the best at what she does! No wonder she has so many awards for being the best Executive/Life Coach by Forbes!

The experience that I had changed my life completely. I was unsure of what to expect during the appointment but she put me at ease as to what would take place, all of my questions and concerns were answered to where I was able to understand. During the intake portion I explained my concerns and experiences and based upon those helped me pick out areas that would be the best to achieve my goals. During the procedural session, she went over what would take place, some feelings and experiences that I may encounter and went over with me in great detail after the session of what the results were, what experiences that I may feel over the short term. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of the experience and would recommend it to my family and friends.

I completed a private Reiki 1 class with Kelly & it was amazing! Kelly offers a well rounded class that touches on the history, practical use, and also business tips and guidelines for Reiki practitioners. The attunement was life changing! Immediately my intuitive gifts catapulted and the shift in my energy was immediate. I practiced on myself the next day and experienced my own healing breakthroughs by utilizing the handbook she provided. Kelly was easy to work with and made me feel comfortable & confident on the next stage of my journey. I am grateful for her gifts and service & I would highly reccomend her to family & friends!

I haven't begun working with Kelly yet, but I did speak with her for a little while on the phone. My impression is that she is not only legitimate, but also very professional, sincere, client-centered. I'm looking forward to working with her to overcome some personal challenges, build a successful coaching business, and broaden the horizons of my spirituality.

Denise is an Amazing Therapist!! I can not thank her enough for all that she has done to help me on my healing journey. She has an incredible background for healing for individuals with PTSD, anxiety, depression, marital issues, and adverse childhood experiences. She employs a variety of therapy techniques to include psychotherapy, meditation, sand trays, and immersion therapy to unearth the core problems that we, as adults, may be facing. She is an extremely compassionate, caring and understanding person who is highly motivated and dedicated to helping others. Medicine is an Art and Denise has the Gift to Heal! If you or a loved one are facing stress or have been subject to stress or adverse situations in your past you must seek Denise for advice and help.

I loved working with Susan. She really took the time after my Reikey healing session to give me an intuitive reading and she was so dead on about a lot of issues that are or were at one time a problem in my life and answered a lot of questions that really put my mind at ease. She is so kind, compassionate, and caring like an old friend you've know for years. Looking forward to my next session with her.

Hiring Lvl 10 was the best decision of my life . I saw such great results from my personal training . I was challenged to be the best woman I could possibly be. I dropped 4 sizes in the matter of four months. I also received personal nutritional guidance, and the best part was that my trainer walked me through what to eat and why I should eat it. My training sessions were hard & at the same time extremely fun. Do yourself a favor and go with LVL 10

I have been training with Jackson for about two years now. It has truly been a great experience, he is an exceptional trainer and is not only concerned with my fitness level but my overall health. When I started two years ago, I was barely able to do a push up and my core and balance were awful. I train with him once a week, and on my own 3-4 times a week using what I learn in my sessions with him. Two years later and I am able to hold a plank for more than 30 seconds and do a real push up :-) I have not only lost weight but have toned and strengthened my body. He is patient, and ensures that you doing the exercises correctly. Jackson works with me to make sure I am making healthy life choices; it really is a full lifestyle change to become a healthy individual. He also introduced me to the importance of rolling out after working out and myofascial release. I use to suffer from incredible headaches, which I didn't realize were related to tight back/neck muscles. Ever since I started a stretching and roll out routine, my headaches have pretty much stopped. Needless to say I will continue to train with him!

I have been with Jackson for 5+ years and he is the best trainer I have ever been with. He has seen me at my highs and my lows, always understanding my rough times and keeping completely professional. His knowledge in fitness and health is unending, he always knows the next big thing and works to get certified and knowledge on things that are needed for his clients. For example I have degenerate disk disease and he works with me on mobility to make sure I don’t aggravate it during my workouts. He’s always on time ready to work and I have lost weight and more importantly body fat percentage, which he measures every month along with body measurements. I have followed him to different places he’s trained at and will continue to do so. I have finally been able to better my health and endurance thanks to him and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. He’s tough, but he is truly passionate at what he does and cares about his clients. I would recommend him to anyone!

To be honest, I cannot speak highly enough of Raffi. In just a couple of sessions, Raffi had already began to successfully impact our marriage. Both my wife and I continue to be impressed with him and our progress each week. He is genuine in his demeanor and sincere with his advice. He is patient with us and seems to balance when to listen versus when to overrule us perfectly. Most importantly, Raffi is nonjudgemental and does a fantastic job identifying and treating the source of the issue as opposed to merely dealing with the symptoms. We are especially grateful for his willingness to work with us despite running a significant amount of time over on numerous occasions. The value he has offered us is truly evident in our everyday lives.

Raffi led an informal group which I attended along with a few classmates from Israel in the summer of 2010. We had just returned to New Jersey from studying in a one- to two-year fellowship abroad. Raffi smoothed our transition back to American life, all while volunteering his time and skills. He is extremely intelligent, insightful, trustworthy and pragmatic. I recommend Raffi without hesitation or reservation. He has a serious goal-focus balanced with a great sense of humor. Raffi is a tremendous, vital person to turn to.

Despite her very busy schedule, Caitlin has always made herself available to help when needed. Somehow, no matter what else she has going on in her day, when we are speaking I feel like I am her sole focus and priority. Caitlin is a very genuine, very caring person, and has a tremendous amount to offer her clients.

Amy is a very caring,positive supportive person. She is an excellent communicator with great patience. She was my life coach for about five years and helped me with my life goals and values. When I met my partner she became our couples coach. She was good at role playing and relationship skill exercises.She also was good at listening to us and not taking sides. The best thing I could say was that although I had been seeing her for years as my life coach , my girlfriend liked her from the start and always felt comfortable with her. She never felt that Amy favored me over her. This is the most compelling case I can make as to why Amy is so good and has a genuine affection for her clients. She is openly rooting for you. The things she could do better probably is true for most therapists and life or couples coaches. I felt especially as a couples coach she didn't challenge us enough or focus harder on some of the problems we were having. She did not however, attempt to do therapy which is beyond her training and was always clear and honest with us that she was a couples coach and not a couples therapist. My partner and I are still together and thanks to Amy we learned valuable communication skills and a respect for each other. I highly recommend Amy as both a life coach and a couples coach. You will always have a friend who cares about you and wants what's best for you in her.

Joanna was a wonderful listener and excellent person to speak with. She was there for me when I most needed her and helped me evolve as person. I have been to therapists in the past and have never felt as fulfilled as I did when I started having sessions with Joanna. A job of a good therapist is not to have their clients depend on them but to teach them how to fully function on their own and that is exactly what she did for me. She helped me to see the capabilities I hold within myself and I will forever be grateful for that.

I’ve been working with Evala for over three years now. The reason I’ve been working with her for this length of time, and will continue to do so, is because if the results I’ve seen in my life. In our meetings, Evala is professional and at the same time I feel like I’m talking with a great friend. No matter what I share with her, I am met with understanding and offered suggestions for opportunities to grow. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried and we’ve dug deep. I didn’t know what to expect at first. I didn’t really know what I wanted other than change for the better in myself and life. And that is precisely what I got. I love myself today. And that has allowed me healthier relationships, romantic and otherwise. I’m more confident in my decisions. I’m more open to change. I see fear as an opportunity for growth. I trust that at the end of the day, I can handle what comes my way and when necessary, I know it’s ok to ask for help. Am I perfect? Nope! And I like that about me. This is a complete 180 from the painfully shy, sad, lonely person I once was. Evala has helped me I so many ways and there will never be a way to express it fully. I’m thankful she is in my life.

When I started working with Evala almost four years ago I was in the thick of navigating all the challege that come with divorce, reentering the work force after ten years of being at home raising childern, returning to live with my parents with my three young childern where I was often treated like a child myself, and starting to date not making the best choices in men. In working with Evala my selfconfidence has grown, I have become more self aware, I have a better understanding of who I am and what I want out of relationships. I have learned to set boundaries and to have conversation with people that I would of avoided in the past. Evala incorporates a variety of tools and techniques from writing assignments to creative projects that I found more effective than traditional talk threapy.

"Xavier is a champion of active-listening, and then getting the heart of matters. He provided an objective voice to help me better understand the many different choices before me, and their pros and cons. He also provided excellent and helpful Life-Assignments (as he calls them; I think he came up with the term during one of our sessions!). One of the most helpful was introducing me to Emotional Intelligence, and my exploration of that between our sessions has helped me gain insight and knowledge in my own line of work that I probably would not have discovered otherwise. Lastly, Xavier's passion to help people become the best that they can be is contagious, and I highly recommend him as a life-coach."

During our calls, her calm and centered presence always created the space for me to think and speak freely about my life, and for me to figure out where I felt I needed to do some work. She has a beautiful energy about her, and her questioning is always on-point, taking you through a journey of self-reflection, awareness, and strategizing to give you the tools you need to change and improve your life.
