"Working with Chris was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself. I felt an instant connection to him - like he could see me for who I was, but also who I was meant to be. His presence and direct but loving approach helped me feel safe to explore the patterns and beliefs that were no longer serving me - and to take clear steps towards releasing them. I often found that he could see one step ahead of where I was at - the version of me that was just around the corner. Having him there to hold that space and see me in that light helped me reach each version of myself faster than I could have on my own. Through his support and guidance, I have been able to show up as a better coach myself, as well as a better partner, daughter and friend. Chris, I am so grateful for you!”

"Working with Chris Plourde has been the best gift I have given myself. As the year comes to a close, and I reflect on my year and all I have accomplished and all I have discovered about myself, I realize I have one person to thank for my growth and healing. As a coach, Chris has provided me with a safe and nurturing space to explore my needs and my goals. He has helped me to figure out how to let go of what is no longer serving me and to develop a plan for myself to create and achieve my goals moving forward. Chris’s unique experience allows him to help in all areas of my life and therefore we have been able to effect change that has been unbelievably powerful in a very short time. I have seen positive change not only in my life, but in the lives of my family and in my career. Chris has a way of guiding me (and his clients) in a nurturing and supportive way while also pushing me to achieve my highest potential. Thank you Chris for helping me to be my best self and I cannot wait for all we can accomplish together in the years to come."

"Chris, Your “What Matters Most” presentation really resonated with me as I started thinking about ‘embracing the uncomfortable’. Not just exercise, but in our business life and in our relationships. I think you’re an excellent communicator and your message was great on so many levels. Thank you for taking the time to be with us on this very special day."

"I have worked with Chris for several months now, and it has been a hugely impactful experience. Chris is gifted in bringing out the best you didn’t know you had. What Chris does best is help you understand that your life, your circumstances, and the outcomes you seek are very much within your control. That has, for me, been a revelation that has lead me to alter my approach to work and play; I’m more directed, more proactive, and am experiencing more success and greater satisfaction in both. I cannot recommend Chris more highly."
