This will be my second week working with Elin Personal Training Redefined. So far I have had an overwhelmingly positive experience. Elin responds very quickly to any question or inquiry that I may have, and the trainer Alek has done a great job during my sessions. I also really appreciate the guidance and advice on nutrition. I would definitely recommend Elin. Thanks!

Coach Lynn helps me in my career transition, as well as she designed my CV, trained me for interviews and enhanced my communication skills. I am convinced that she is awesome Executive Life Coach. All of my meetings and interactions with her were highly informative, helpful and I was able to gain more confidence to accomplish my goals. Coach Lynn was incredibly effective throughout my job search. Amazingly, within the month of our interactions I was able to get an excellent job. Moreover, new avenues for my career development have opened with her efforts. I am very satisfied with career coaching from Coach Lynn Johnson. She is highly experienced, insightful and professional in her work. I greatly value all the advice, training and other services that she provides to me. I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a job or better career.

Dr. Guckert is an absolute asset for any life or career needs you may need. I have been very impressed with her professionalism, knowledgeability in goal setting/motivation/practical action steps/accountability/etc., and follow up. It has been very easy to communicate with her and to have online sessions. I had honestly felt lost in my life and career, but Dr. Guckert has provided clarity and helped me install confidence in my strengths. I’m looking forward to following through on my business idea. Also, she’s got great business acumen! In any case, if you’re on the fence about a life or career coach, please just contact Dr. Guckert. You’ll be glad you did. I know I am.

Anne is wonderful! She is a great listener and her upbeat personality and guidance always make me feel better when I am being hard on myself. She helps put things in perspective when I can't see it myself and is patient in the process when I say, no, no, that's not how it is. Then later I realize she was spot on! Just took me some time to get there myself.

I am so happy that I got the opportunity to work with Jenny through one of the most stressful periods of my life. She used her experience and research to help me come up with action items and held me accountable when I wanted her to. She makes you feel comfortable right away and after a session or two you feel like you've known her for years. I would recommend her to anyone who needed guidance and coaching!

Working in a fast paced, growing organization has its challenges. Couple that with some M&A activity, and you can find a very stressed out organization. Dolores was instrumental in not only providing me with guidance on how to maneuver the ever changing challenges, but also helped keep the organization focused and not distracted by all the exciting activity.

Sophia is a talented experience coach and I love working with her. She patiently listens, asks profound questions, leads her session in a manner of self-discovery and exploration. Somehow magically I often arrive to my own solutions with her gentle professional guidance. In a couple of last sessions, Sophia helped me create my dream calendar that I love. It was scary and overwhelming to start setting goals at first. But Sophia masterfully laid out an easy-to-follow plan that turned this project into an inspiring session. Now full with dreams and with a clear vision ahead of me I'm ready to start the New Year, all thanks to Sophia! Highly recommend!

So far I've had one hypnosis session with Julian to help me with focus during my last semester in college. I had never experienced hypnosis before and he took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of my questions so I felt comfortable. Julian is extremely knowledgeable in this line of work and is very attentive to how you feel and what you want to focus on. The session itself was extremely relaxing (his voice has that effect) and with his guidance I was able to visualize my ideal state (in the session) to execute it in real life. Initially I wasn't sure it would work, but I have to say, I felt a difference immediately! The proof for me was seen later in that same week when I submitted a term paper EARLIER than the due date which is hard for a habitual procrastinator like I used to be. Since then, I have consulted him for guidance and support as a life/business coach. His perspective and advice has been invaluable thus far. I'm making progress much faster than I was on my own and he holds me accountable to my goals through unending support and encouragement. I cannot thank him enough!

Lucie is truly an amazing coach. She has helped me initiate and generate greater personal and professional awareness. She keeps me on track and accountable for my goals at each session. Lucie is an excellent listener and really digs deep to help get the clarity I need to move forward. I've noticed great shifts and changes since my coaching with Lucie has begun. I would recommend Lucie to you if you are ready to do the work and take your life and career to the next level.

Leslie’s approach to life-coaching is completely unique and it works. She gets to the heart of the matter, quickly and effectively with an approachable and formidable style. Her personal experience and deep understanding produced new insights that for me, were invaluable. The wisdom in Leslie’s coaching was key in gaining new vision and moving people through cloudy areas of their life. A key foundation to her success in life coaching is her engaging and active listening skills and ability to identify areas for improvement in a supportive way. I reached out to Leslie for assistance with achieving greater balance in my life as I was juggling five children, a potential career, and managing my own life. I highly recommend Leslie as a Life Coach, she is easy to talk to, honest, direct and has a great sense of humor.

Tyler Goddard has helped me transform my body and my life. Without his help I wouldn't be where I am today. I have lost over 30 pounds, built muscle for the first time in my life and gained confidence and happiness that can't be measured. He writes me personalized work-out plans for a 90-day plan with each week and month being different and closely monitored by him. His workouts are challenging yet easy to follow and he tapers them to match my performance. What I enjoy most about my experience in training with Tyler is his genuine concern over my progress and well-being. He is so dedicated to all of his clients and is so happy and excited for me when I meet my goals! He is always a phone call, or text away and will help you with anything even if it's not fitness. Just one thing that makes him different from other coaches. Tyler is truly passionate about helping people achieve their dreams and live a healthy lifestyle. I have trained with other personal trainers and met with life coaches, but the difference is that Tyler actually cares about his clients on a personal level. He is so warm and motivating and I would recommend him to anyone looking for exercise/nutrition advice to just life and well-being guidance. Since working with Tyler, there is no one else I will train with!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Quianna over the past month. We decided that a package of five sessions would match my needs and we went well above and beyond what I was expecting to get out of our meetings! Not only did Quianna help me narrow down which field I should be looking for a career in, but she also helped me discover what motivates me professionally and why I was so unhappy in my previous position. An awesome part of her approach is how she starts with the foundation of who you are. I hadn't wanted to admit that I was severely lacking in professional confidence. However, she encouraged me to tackle that head on before we began talking about a new career field and those initial discussions were immensely helpful. Logistically speaking, scheduling and communicating with Quianna between sessions was very easy as well. Over the course of our sessions, I contacted her via text message, phone call and email and she was always very prompt and friendly in her replies. On a personal level, I truly enjoyed working with Quianna. She was incredibly warm and understanding and made me feel that I could be comfortable and open with her about what I was looking for and how I felt about my new job search. Not only did she help me before I began looking for a new job in a new field, but I believe that she can help others with any variety of questions or problems about their current or future work experiences.

I have had the pleasure of working with Rick on a number of occasions to utilize his expertise in career coaching, resume writing, and business consulting. As a coach and consultant, he is a great listener and provides useful feedback and ideas for action. I have found him to have good availability and always responds quickly. He is professional, discreet, and I trust him completely. I recommend him highly! Christopher Porter
