"Ildy is the best consultant/ coach I could imagine. She helped me recover

from a difficult back injury with careful, precise steps and great kindness.

Idly intuitively knows when its time to push and when to go easy, when to

give advice and when to just listen, when it's time to have fun and

experiment with a new routine and when constant, perfect repetition is the

only thing that will work to undo bad learned behaviors. I was constantly

amazed at how I was never bored or frustrated going thorough the slow

healing process with her as she enthusiastically encouraged me and

generously shared her knowledge about mindset, exercise and lifestyle. Because she knows so much about how the human body and mind works, I unreservedly

recommend her to you. Whether it's an injury recovery or a full on 'work

till you drop session' - Idly is your girl!"

"It is hard to say enough good things about Ildy as a strategist and as a person. She is the best I ever had:

• Extensive knowledge from a holistic perspective.

• Endless repertoire and variation on the ways to achieve a stress-free life and balance

• A great balance of empathy to read when you are up for a challenge or need a little nursing to get throughif you feel really stressed or tired from lack of sleep

I absolutely endorse Ildy if you want to get the best coach you will ever have."

Matt Brzycki

Assistant Director of Campus Recreation, Fitness

“ildy. You. Are. Awesome. Appreciate your passion and enthusiasm. You’re a vital part in why our program has been so successful.

ildy’s high quality of presentation was evident in a number of ways. First, almost everyone remained in the class. Second, as the presentation was coming to a close, the chat box lit up with rave reviews, extolling Ildy with praise and appreciation. Afterwards, I received unsolicited emails from a few our employees, echoing what was stated in the chat box. The same sentiments were expressed in a post-class survey that was sent to all who attended. A handful of examples that I received directly by email are “I want to thank you so much for this very inspiring session”; and “That was a great presentation”. Again, all of these were unsolicited comments.

Having been employed at the collegiate level as an administrator, an educator and a coach since 1983 – including the past 30+ years at Princeton University – it’s my professional opinion that ildy is an enthusiastic and charismatic speaker who has complete mastery of her topic and I recommend her as a resource on health and wellness without reservation. Please contact me if you require any additional information. Thank you.

Ken Whitney

Executive Director, Antipodes

"Ildy has been my peak performance strategist for the last 18 months or so. I have been impressed with the depth of her knowledge and scientific approach to overall mind and body maintenance. Ildy has provided me with various strategies working on particular areas that need attention from time to time. The exercises can be challenging at first but are always set within my capability, giving me a sense of achievement as I master them.

Ildy is always fun to work with and has a lovely personality which makes regular sessions a pleasant experience. I am more than happy to recommend her as a consultant and resilience specialist which have been so beneficial to me."

John Doherty

Business Owner, NZ-Japan

Always busy, never enough time for myself, my wife, my kids, my health….I thought it was about time to do something to help re-programme the way I thought, the way I lived…to simply get more out of life. Towards the end of 2018, Ildy took me on a journey to help me slow down and pause, to breath… appreciate and get more out of each day..and spend more time with those I love and that matter most. Often pushing me out of my comfort zone, it was challenging but very rewarding. From learning the art of mindfulness, to guided meditation to self-acceptance and setting new and achievable goals. It certainly gave me a new (better) perspective on a lot of things, equipping me with a tool kit to help pursue a new, more positive, way of living. Ildy is awesome – extremely personable and calming and clearly very passionate about what she does. Life is too short to live a life of stress and worry – I would highly recommend putting YOU first for once and let Ildy teach you some life skills that will not only help make you a better person, but to gain skills and tips to help you enjoy life to the fullest.

The Honourable Tracey Walker,

New Zealand

"I started working with Ildy after a long period of inactivity and with a specific and ambitious goal of cycling some of the iconic French mountains within 6 months. It was madness really but Ildy was completely up to the challenge. Her holistic approach suited me perfectly – we worked really hard when it was right to do so, practised mindfulness, built personalised strategies and I’ve even learnt mindful movements when that better suited the physical space I was in. I enjoyed Ildy’s energy, benefitted from her well structured transformational sessions and commitment to the task. I have no doubt that without having Ildy in my training regime, my goal would never have been realisable."

Katrina Turner, Miss Supranational 2017

"Outstanding master of her craft. ildy is brimming with the brains to help anyone achieve what they desire. She's the real deal in an industry full of wannabes and is the standard by which any strategist should be measured. Through consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, she retained my attitude while I retrained my body. In a short time, I gained confidence to enter Miss New Zealand. When I was training with her, she made me feel like Rocky Balboa, like I could achieve anything I put my mind to. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Ildy will lead you every step of the way."

“Thank you very much for my first Disruptive Strategic Weight Loss Coaching session. Very impressed. After having no direction, feeling depressed, finally I have sense of clarity again and excited about life and being healthy again“

Petra N., Happy Dog Business Owner


"I started to work with ildy to help me with weight loss.

Yet I have quickly discovered why dieting only gave me temporary success in the last 10 years and why it all had to start with the transformation of my unconscious habits.

One of the biggest realization for me was that losing weight is a not only a perceived danger to my unconscious mind but it’s rather a value & not a goal that my unconscious mind would want to work towards.

I now finally set a true exciting goal I’m excited working towards to.

By Ildy’s step by step method, I’m also forming a new lifestyle that is enjoyable and maintainable long term and I didn’t had to gave up on things I love which is new to me.

By the small simple changes we’ve made, I already notice that my tummy is smaller and I have much more energy, and I’m motivated to keep going.

I highly recommend Ildy if you are ready to achieve the body permanently you’ve always wanted."

Michael Simmonds

Getting the control back of my mental well-being helped not only my relationship with my wife, but to play better golf and be more productive & focused at work as we’ve created lasting changes in my habits through her unique techniques. 10 years later she is still my coach.Ildy is always fun to work with and has a lovely personality which makes regular sessions a pleasant experience.

"As we approach our maturing years many of us accept we are no longer going to have ‘6 packs”, but we all treasure our leisure time, and being competent when we are involved in tennis, golf, skiing, and even walking.

I gave Ildy the brief that I wanted to improve my stamina and sport performance..

She devised a simple set of exercises,( anew set each month) that improved my breathing , strength, stamina, and associated with all these, use of the core.( and I have learnt that the core is the basis of a good golf swing, tennis shot,etc)

In practical terms I have improved my technique, improved my flexibility,slowed down and now breathe correctly, and particularly my golf game has improved. I hit the ball longer and more consistently."

Paul Lynex, Head of Group Credit Assurance at ANZ Bank

"I had been wondering how to contact you to thank you so very much for the work you have been doing with my beautiful wife, both before and after her accident. She was feeling great and on the way up before she fell and the time since has been so very hard for her, she is still not fully there but she is much improved and regaining confidence, she is a lot happier within herself. So much of that is due to the time that she spent with you, she really appreciated your coaching and enthusiasm - given that you have had to come across town to see her and I especially know for less than you would usually charge clients. She admires you so much. Both of us are so very grateful but I can't tell you how much that I am for helping her out of a very low point, I couldn't have done it on my own and certainly not without you. I can't express my thanks enough, you are indeed a special one.
