I want to take this opportunity to thank you for sharing your ideas and experiences in physical fitness with our officers at our recent off-site at (black out). Your presentation stressing the goal setting, fundamentals of physical fitness and injury prevention was exactly what our work force needed. As all of us are expected to work longer hours under increasing stress. Therefore it is important that we take care of ourselves first and your presentation provided each of us ideas on how we could start appropriate fitness programs or modify our current programs.

My officers were especially impressed with your ability to not only share with them some specific techniques but also your skills for motivating each of them through various group exercises. The group exercises were fun and brought out the competitive edge in each of us.

You provide a great example for all of us to emulate. Again, thank you for sharing your ideas and techniques with us.

  The Manor Montessori School 

Thank you so much for the workshop you presented at the Manor Montessori School on “Stress Management”.   The teachers and support staff were very receptive to your engaging and spirited presentation and particularly appreciated your comments and suggestions, and your “ears” by just listening to them.   

When you started the workshop with the tape recording of the news, reminding the staff that they begin their day this way, you really caught their attention.  Your workshop also promoted discussion among the staff about their individual stresses in lifestyles.  It got them to think and make for a more positive, healthy lifestyle. 

Because of your workshop, the majority of my staff are now taking stock of their wellbeing by exercising, eating healthier and incorporating activities that nurture and uplift their being.   This has reduced the absenteeism in the school and has created a more happier and positive environment.     

Thank you again for making this event effective, motivation and fun.

"My biggest achievement was making the commitment to do the program; running that first lap around the track in the intense heat and getting up in time for the 7 a.m. runs. The best part was getting to know the team and the camaraderie. I'm down 4% body fat and have added a lot more muscle, I've cut 2 minutes off of my mile and lost a total of 22 pounds. Thanks Coach for your inspiration, motivation and help in getting me to this level."
