"Lawrence was able to very quickly identify my talents (and weaknesses!) and helped me work on them with his honest and accurate feedback, and in 2012, I won the Asia Fitness Convention Presenter Idol competition which led to opportunities to present at future fitness conventions. 4 years on, I still look forward to every opportunity to learn from him. His approach to fitness has also helped me retain my clients and create a very strong culture of belonging among my clients at my bootcamp, significantly increasing my popularity and overall income."
"Meeting Lawrence in IDEA Convention and Asia Fitness Convention 2013 was the beginning of my International career journey. It’s such an honour to have an internationally-recognized-award-winning presenter Lawrence Biscontini as my mentor. He provided detail professional guidance for my teaching which definitely changed the way i teach. He also prepared me to reach for "presenter level" which I was looking for. I filmed my classes on my phone and sent them to him via Dropbox, and then we would Skype demos and drills with his feedback. The whole mentorship program has evolved me, my life, plays an important role in my coaching and presenter skills where I am now. Starting from The Asia Fitness Idol Competition where I competed twice, I now also present sessions in The Indonesia Fitness Exhibition & Convention 2015 and now stepping-up my fitness career to Asia and even bigger scale I have never imagined before. I am learning from the best. Thank you Lawrence!"

"Thanks to mentoring with Lawrence I am now presenting at SCW and other conferences. Not having something to sell makes me less desirable to the folks that run conferences because many presenters are sponsored by companies with products to sell, and Lawrence was able to overcome this challenge and find me work on the convention circuit because of my unique niche. Lawrence convinced me that I had a message and then helped get me started (and still does) spreading that message."
“Having Lawrence as a mentor in my career enabled me to spread the passion I have for wellness. As a fitness educator I work as an international fitness presenter, I have published articles and am the co-creator of 'Kids in Motion' specialty certificate. Lawrence nutured, inspired and opened doors for me that enabled me to have all of these wonderful opportunities."
"Having Lawrence as a mentor in my career opened up doors and dreams that were just that before: dreams. His influence on my career has helped me navigate the vastness of the fitness industry with great precision and ease." "Lawrence showed me the importance of having a plan and was able to help me become part of ACE/AFAA/AEA faculty, writing recommendations and promoting me in the presenting world...any word coming from such a respected professional as Lawrence means ALOT in the fitness industry!"
"Having Lawrence as a mentor proved to be one of the best choices made throughout my 18 year career. Working with the BEST in the industry can only provide such individuals like myself a world of opportunities and that's exactly what Lawrence provided my career. One of my first opportunities associated with mentoring with Lawrence over 13 years ago took me around the world to Hong Kong, China and my career has flourished ever since. More importantly I've learned the importance of "mentoring" others and how it can have such a huge impact on everyone's life and career. Mentors provide vision, goals, and success. Without one there's emptiness and darkness."
"The truth is that my career in fitness evolved and blossomed after I met Lawrence. I let him help me with his professional advice and guidance as a friend--but more than that--as my mentor. I had the vision of where I wanted to go but he helped me to plan and put a structure to that vision. He put me in contact with disciplines and fitness formats, workshops, certifications and specialty certifications that I never would have studied if it weren’t for Lawrence. Step by step with his professional advice, my vision embraced his knowledge, and the result is that the opportunities for work, travel, got me collaborations with many companies. Furthermore, with his assistance, I developed educational and audiovisual materials, wrote a book, did dvds, got into national conventions, and am emerging as I never thought possible in fitness. I become an all around presenter and a true fitness educator who travels around the world as a faculty member of the top accredited organizations for fitness in America spreading my passion and my vision for fitness and wellness thanks to Lawrence’s mentoring."
