I have been involved in sports and fitness for most of my life. My journey has not always traveled a straight and narrow path. A few bumps and detours have resulted in unfortunate distress that led me into a lifestyle of unhealthy eating and poor exercise habits. As a former fitness instructor, I knew I could be better. Dan Kritsonis is one the Pacific Northwest’s premiere fitness consultants. Passionate about health and wellness, and equipped with the appropriate credentials, Dan has been helping others pursue and achieve their goals for balanced and healthy living for over 30 years. Dedicated to continuous learning and innovation, he is focused on my unique requirements and fine tuning my exercise regimen to achieve better results faster while targeting goals that are safe and effective in meeting my needs. Feeling good is about more than physical outcomes. It's about emotional victories. After losing 100 pounds, I am on a healthy path to losing the remaining 30 pounds, renewing core strength, and continuing my journey toward emotional and physical balance. We all need someone to push, motivate, and guide us, as well as understand our strengths and weaknesses. Dan is helping me get maximum results by personally tailoring my training sessions while coaching and motivating me to do my best. With a master’s touch, Dan commits himself to a love of fitness and health. And because he is genuinely passionate about helping me reach my goals, I know I am in good hands!

    Having a very busy office job spending many hours each day at the computer, combined with being an AVID recreational tennis player who spends at least ten hours a week on the courts, I was desperately in need of a personal trainer who could help me squeeze in an invigorating, and sport specific, training schedule two days a week. To say that I found the epitome of that person in Prisco is an understatement. He is a personal trainer whose professionalism, knowledge, intuition, challenging nature and patience produce a workout that is exactly what I was looking for. Prisco always tailors our time to get the utmost out of each session. His encouragement in helping me to strive for better endurance and strength was optimal in getting me to work harder and to achieve my goals.

    Les was an excellent speaker, coach & motivator. He did a thorough discovery process with us to determine exactly what we were looking to achieve & catered the day around our goals. He was very engaging with everyone & has a great sense of humor. Newer agents gained much needed tools & insight, while tenured agents found the information to be a great refresher for their skill sets, even learning some new items along the way. I would highly recommend Les Lent for your next Seminar or Training session - you & your employees will walk away feeling empowered!

    Tiffany is the "diamond" of a career coach so it is fitting to rate and recommend her using the 4 C's of Diamonds carat (character), cut, color and clarity. Carat (character) - They say that character is who you are when no one is looking, but I believe it is also how genuine you are in your interactions. Tiffany is compassionate, understanding, insightful, caring, motivating, EVERYTHING a career coach should be. Cut - Coaching is NOT a cookie-cutter process and Tiffany understands that. She will cut the perfect coaching plan to meet your needs and has awesome flexibility to accommodate changes. Color - Tiffany's ability to verbally paint colorful scenarios based on information you share, is phenomenal. What YOU might miss because you are moving through life too fast, Tiffany will bring to your attention. Clarity - With each coaching session, the blur of your situation becomes clearer. Tiffany is the bridge that helped me make peace with my past and move forward to my future. Losing your job after 10 years and finding yourself lost in the middle of nowhere is a very scary place to be. Through the coaching process, Tiffany helped me sort out and deal with each of the things that were suffocating me feeling like I wasn't good enough, wondering how I would market myself to future employers, worrying about the financial stresses of losing my income and figuring out where I should go from here. Her flexibility to adjust to my perfect pace, her compassion to my situation, her ability to see what I did not see and her gentleness in giving advice helped me to realize my greatest strengths and become more self-aware. If you are looking for a career coach, you have found the PERFECT coach in Tiffany.

    Andy is a speaker who gives you exactly what he advertises. I have been in a position to view motivational, presentation, political and general public speaking events every year and most get the job done. Selling, convincing and debating, I usually go home educated on the subject matter. With Andy Vargo I was a bit caught offgaurd at how much his story got to me. Even though we weren't going through the exact same experience, he spoke in such a way I identified with him almost from word one. It was a super positive, I had more questions about myself than when I started. Why can't I do that, what is stopping me, if not now than when? Andy was also very approachable after the show with everyone who wanted a talk. I have heard him speak multiple times and feel his story can stand alone or be geared to specific groups in need of working through thier path.

    Dynamic speaker and teacher! I loved hearing about her life experiences as well as her healing process through brokenness. She is funny, relatable and authentic. She would be great for all ages, women's groups, keynote at luncheons, anything sports related, teen events, conferences or club functions.

      Jacob is hands down the best trainer I've ever had. He is honest, energetic, motivating and very serious about working out. He loves coming to the gym everyday to kick your butt, but you will love him for it when you see the results lol! He cares about you as a person as well as a client. He uses his training sessions to uplift and build confidence. So you can say he's like a counselor as well. DEFINITELY train with him. You will not regret it!

        We booked Ali for a smaller, more intimate speaking event (under 100 people). We ultimately ended up selecting Ali over other speakers because of her unique voice and her storytelling ability. Ali is real, engaging and she uses humor to tell her story in a way that’s relatable to all. When you hear “cancer survivor” you may initially think that the content will be heavy and may not appeal to a broad audience. However, Ali’s story is more about how a moment in time (i.e. a Stage IV cancer diagnosis) can change your life and career trajectory. At it's core, her story is about pursuing your passions and living life to its fullest. An important message that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. I highly recommend Ali.

        Blair is prompt to reply to all of my correspondence and questions- very professional and a man of his word. During our first session Blair put me through a series of 'tests' to see how my body moved in order to design the best program for me. He worked with the resources I had available (i.e. the equipment in my apartment building's gym) and also suggested some low cost equipment that would enhance my routine. His knowledge of physical fitness is immense and I admit I didn't understand a few of the terms he used- but he made sure I understood the most important parts. He watched me like a hawk and gave simple and direct advice on how to correct my form. The workout he designed was simple and yet very impactful- it left me feeling energized and motivated to work out more. I highly recommend Blair- he's a professional with tons of experience in training.

          I attended an event at which David was the keynote speaker. He was uplifting, inspiring, and funny. I believe those are the most important goals for a speaker to attain, and David was spot on. He truly entertained his audience.

          What a life changing experience to work with Saba. She helped to me find my purpose and passion which ultimately changed my life for the better. I walked aimlessly without knowing what my calling was. Without her knowledge and wisdom to help bring out the drive, motivation and will power I had inside myself, I wouldn't be where I am today.

          About

          I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
