"I could probably write pages on the great experience I had working with Eileen Chadnick. To keep it brief I will just say that I did not give her an easy time when we first started working together - the key here is to understand that this is work, there is no easy way through it, she is there to coach you but you still need to do the work. The sooner yo... Read more"

Coaching provides live feedback, analysis and years of expertise. You can read books but you can’t get any feedback or analysis of any exercises you’re doing. Now I feel armed with information...
