Your program taught me how to awaken the “spiritual warrior” within myself and to create and sustain a personal best effort in relationships, fitness and growth. Since becoming involved I have become physically fit as a natural and easy consequence of the mental structure instilled by your program. Further your comprehensive program allowed me to pass through two extremely difficult life challenges and emerge with confidence and a sense of well-being. There can be no greater benefit to any endeavor than to become self actualizing.

What can I say about my journal work? Pretty crazy! It was funny and sad at the same time reading from the beginning of training to the end. While I was reading I knew I would never get back to that situation again. There are little signs that will let me know if I am even considering going down that horrible path again. Another thing I thought of while reading was that there was and is a common characteristic of everything that was positive. That was determination, drive and hard work. Making goals and actually reaching them, it’s actually pretty simple if you want it. This whole experience has been an eye opener for me! I have realized so many things. I have to keep practicing my new tools. I am definitely in a better place. Not just physically but mainly mentally. I will use this with all aspects of my life forever. I’ve learned you can’t fool yourself at all.

I was immediately taken with Chris’ ability as a teacher and his thorough knowledge of athletics. I soon had my children involved in his programs and I also employed Chris as my personal trainer. Chris imparts a sincere love of sports, an enthusiasm for teaching and a great sensitivity to his students. He is respectful and genuinely cares about their accomplishments. Chris has long been a good will ambassador for the world of sports. I recommend him to you wholeheartedly.

Chris brings an incredible amount of both enthusiasm and expertise to his job. He is a quick study when it comes to understanding people and therefore can work well with a diverse group of different types of people. He is extremely organized. Give him any responsibility and he will rise to the challenge before him. Chris is also a gifted speaker. He motivates his audience whether the group is ten people or one hundred. People walk away, from time spent listening to Chris present, feeling that they can accomplish more than they ever dreamed.

I have observed Chris as a competitor, a teacher, a trainer, and an administrator. He has excelled in every role. This is a mature man with a myriad of skills, not only in the area of fitness and recreation but also in dealing with people, regardless of age or social strata. Chris has tremendous personal integrity and charisma.

I have known Chris for some time now and I have been very impressed with his manner of dealing with people. He evidences excellent communication skills, a genuine understanding of people and a willingness to work for their total well-being.

I have known and done business with Chris Shaddock for years. During this period I have watched him develop many athletic youth programs much to my amazement. His success in setting up many of these unique and different programs generated great interest by the community. I had the opportunity on many occasions to have business negotiations with him. He always prepared for the negotiations and is a very distinguished and honorable person to do business with.

Chris is a very enthusiastic, energized and determined person when it comes to organizing or participating in any activity. He has provided a great service to both the community and businesses which he has been involved. He is a great motivator and is sincerely concerned about those people that he either works for or works with. Chris has provided many programs to the community and I have had the opportunity to observe Chris in his role as motivator, instructor and participant. He would be a vital asset to any business bringing his years of experience as an organizer and motivator.

M. Jacobson / Director of Physical Education and Athletics

The team’s success can be attributed to a large degree to the excellent coaching job you have done. The team did exceptionally well in tournaments, culminating in a fourth place finish at the State Private School Tournament. Chris, you have a gift working with young people. You are demanding yet fair. The enthusiasm you bring to practice and matches is contagious for those around you. The athletes on your team were highly motivated throughout the season. It is rewarding to see someone whom you coached do such an outstanding job when they become a coach.

D. S. Wolk / College President

As you will note from his background, Chris offers an eclectic array of successful experience which could prove quite helpful to you. He is first and foremost a person of unquestionable fine character, a gentleman who is very well respected by all who have crossed his personal and professional path.

A. Jones / Security Guard and Student

Chris, This is Aaron Jones I took your class about a year ago and signed up for the Success Seeds. I read each and every one of them, I think about how it matters to my own day to day situation, and I attempt to impart that into my life. To me in a way these are not simple quotes. As read in the subject of each email they are, Aaron’s Success Seeds. A lot of these seeds urge me to strive for more. By the end of the month at age 21 I’m going to be a homeowner. This is not something I had begun to think about a year ago. Back in May I decided I’m tired of renting because it’s a waste of money and I couldn’t even say the roof over my head was my own. In those short months I placed an offer on the house next door to my mothers so I could stay close to my family. The closing date is to happen no later than September. So after nurturing and caring for the seeds you have sent me that’s what’s bloomed… and I like it. Thank you.

D. E. Stanley / Department of Social Services

I have seen Mr. Shaddock discuss, clarify, negotiate and implement plans. He is assertive, tough, honest, hard working and responsible. Mr. Shaddock is a fine example of positive leadership skills of the highest caliber. He expects the best of those that he works with. He demands no less of his own performance.

W. H. Carris / State Senator & Entrepreneur 

I have known Chris professionally, as a client, and now as a friend. Over the years I have known him; it has been a pleasure to see him mature as a person. Chris has a great deal of business experience. Chris is a good negotiator and he is extremely honest and forthright in all his dealings. Chris has a very “real world” outlook but maintains his optimism with an incredible energy and love of teaching both kids and adults.

T. Elsemore / Entrepreneur

I have known and worked directly and indirectly with Chris Shaddock for years. I have never met a person with his level of passion and commitment for his work and the success of his co-workers. He understands the balance necessary to operate at peak performance for himself and his staff. His goal is to improve their lives, not just monetary success. He redefines diligence, consistency, perseverance and follow-through. He has strong problem solving skills. His coaching and motivational skills are beyond comprehension.

T. Cohen / Business Owner

My life is an interesting mix of a wonderful family, businesses, employees, athletics, coaches, teachers and more… plus the minor things that try to push you over the edge like oil and gas prices, food, wine, professional sports teams, need I go on? Using Chris’ method of calming my body and brain on a daily basis I have been able to control the “chatter” and departmentalize it into controllable bits of information which I process or throw away if required. The process has changed my life for the better. I will be practicing his techniques for the rest of my life.

G. Fineberg / Business Owner

Being healthy and fit has always been an important part of my life. Achieving those goals has always seemed to be a problem. Finding the time to workout was impossible as my job in retailing often requires long hours. Family time is important and usually makes up the balance of my day. Under Chris’ guidance as my trainer I have learned to achieve the maximum total body workout in the least amount of time. By using Chris’ training philosophy and principles I have greatly improved my overall well-being and cut down my training time by sixty percent. Chris has my respect as being a leader in his field.

Chris, as you know I’m into personal development and seek out the best coaches, Tony Robbins, Norman Vincent Peale. I have attended seminars with the #1 real estate agent in North America. Your coaching program has given me the tools I’ve been looking for to achieve any and all obstacles in my life. You’re with out a doubt the #1 coach I have ever met and had the pleasure of working with. I know you will continue to help people achieve their dreams and goals in life. Thank you for all your help.

This is something that I have put a lot of thought and consideration into. I am referring to the program that Chris Shaddock has developed specifically for me. I am so excited to promote Chris’ program because it is the only one that has worked for me. I have never been bored or wanted to quit. In closing let me say I have the utmost respect for Chris and his fitness philosophy. I have the results to prove it. Chris has the intuitive ability to motive, guide and inspire.

J. R. McGinnis / Insurance Agency Owner

In approximately four months I have worked with you, I have increased my endurance, strength, flexibility and desire to train. I now look forward to my training sessions and feel that your program has kept me focused and given me the results I have been looking for. As a motivator I think that you are all that anyone could ask for. Your knowledge and skills at reading people’s needs are exceptional and I feel very lucky to have been able to experience training with you. Many thanks.

If ever you had a rare opportunity to witness the right person doing all the right things, it would have to be like Chris conducting his boxing class. His talents and abilities in fitness and boxing are well known and respected. He is considered by many to be a very gifted and dedicated teacher. He inspires us to push ourselves beyond our limits, challenge ourselves and succeed.

D. Doner / Diabetic Group Leader

I can’t begin to tell you how much everyone enjoyed the “Fitness Motivator” last night. I think everyone now realizes that they can exercise no matter what their limitations. We all know how important an exercise program is to the control of “diabetes”, and you certainly showed us how easy it is to get started. Your program helped us to help ourselves. I think you have a great gift of getting others enthused about a healthier lifestyle. Thanks again.

Mike Silver / Sales Professional

This Success Training is powerful. It breeds confidence and understanding. The training was intimate and intense, and exemplified where the emphasis should be, on the customer. All I can say is that I should have been exposed to this type of training 28 plus years ago. The Circle of Success in and of itself is a process that one should live by.

J. Umbria / Varsity H.S. Football Coach

I would like to thank you for your contributions to the football program. It has been a pleasure to be your coach. When a 105 pound boy can compete with boys twice your size and win a starting position on our team, coaching will always be a rewarding situation. You have proven it is heart not bulk that makes a football player. You are a fine football player.
