Our Value Added

Half measures avail us nothing.

Almost solutions don’t work.

Uninspired support isn’t good enough.

Here, we do things differently, we do things better,

inspired by and dedicated to all those we serve.

Teaching Yoga & Fitness Classes can become repetitive, monotonous and tedious, however when Mona enters the Studio, she livens the space up and gives you motivation to continue training. Mona keeps everyone moving, not matter the pace.
Mona is very personable and knowledgeable. Despite having multiple certifications, she operates from a place of humility and kindness. If she does not know something, she checks with other trainers or health service providers that she knows and updates everyone. Her cheerful attitude makes the practice time go quickly. She makes her classes accessible to all levels. Mona has been an inspiration to many clients at the studio. She is always cheerful and while she pushes hard to get the clients to their goals, the sincerity and dedication from the clients have also shown amazing results because of her encouragement. Mona is professional yet kind, patient and understanding. Extremely respectful of Studio Management and Clients, her time management, focus and drive to constantly better herself or her routines are truly commendable. Mona has the capacity of changing things up, making the workouts interesting as well as challenging using new and varied techniques along with different types of fitness equipment in her classes. She is always openly seeking feedback to better herself and her offerings to our clients. We all at the studio absolutely love her.

Mona has many members of all ages and skill levels and each one has responded well to her enthusiastic teaching style. She is constantly pushing herself as well as her members to work towards better form and greater overall fitness. She is teaching me what it is like to appreciate the small things in life and staying positive and learn to be grateful.
It is this type of innovation and drive to better her surroundings that I believe makes Mona an excellent addition to my studio team. In addition to being a talented yoga instructor and consultant, Mona’s positive attitude and cooperative spirit make her an excellent instructor.

What can I say about Mona? Well, she has been such a well-rounded form of support for me throughout my time in building an environment of self-care around me. Not only did she accommodate coming to my apartment for workouts, she was also able to accommodate my financial constraints. We chatted on the phone and clicked. She stated that she loved what I stood for (I am a Social Worker) and wanted to “spark joy” for me any way she could. As we got to know one another, I realized that she was much more than just my trainer, she had become a bit of a life coach as well; constantly encouraging me and listening to my “problems.” Mona has a way of making you feel like everything is happening as planned and while we figure things out, we should be nourishing our mind, body and soul. She adjusted her workouts to meet my needs as well as catering to the things she noticed that I enjoyed. We meet once a week, and then she will give me 3 workouts to do on my own at home. Eventually, I did a workout at her place that involved boxing and I realized I had a love for it, so we scrapped the other stuff and focused on learning while getting a big sweat on! Not only did Mona go above and beyond with planning my workouts, but she has a beautiful habit of checking in. Whether that be physically “Hey, how’s the body feeling after yesterday?” or mentally “Hey, I can tell that you’re off today, you want to just punch it out?” She has a special way of knowing how you feel without you needing to say a word. I give Mona 6/5 stars because of the above and beyond work she puts into her client relationships. Simply, the best!

My wife and I dedicated a month with Mona for fitness training and nutrition.
I already like going to the gym but my wife did not. Since we both wanted a healthier version of ourselves while doing something we can both enjoy together, we knew we needed a personal trainer to help us. Little did we know that Mona is so much more than a personal trainer. She is an awesome nutrition coach, life coach and now a friend.
From our first encounter, Mona already exuded competence and passion. We started with a nutrition assessment and had 2 personal training sessions per week. Mona pinpointed that despite my wife eating salads and greens, she did not consume enough macros which is why she would have bad food cravings plus selective hunger for ice cream during her monthlies. Long story short, thanks to Mona my wife and I are more knowledgable about our nutrition. My wife now would have a protein smoothie with collagen everyday and her food cravings have significantly decreased. During our personal training sessions, Mona was kind and gentle in her approach but also firm enough when we needed it. She reminded us to listen and to be kind to our bodies. She has an excellent ability to listen and meet you where you are but best of all, she is a remarkable teacher. I have never done a burpee before and I’m not good with timing and coordination. She can guide you to perform complex movements by breaking it down so you can do it and feel confident about your abilities. We even enjoyed learning boxing and now my wife and I go to the gym together!
We learned so much from Mona. She definitely opened our eyes and made us realize that in whatever we do, we should have fun and of course, listen to new music! Mona, we can’t thank you enough for what you had imparted to us. You made our July sweaty and memorable.

A Glowing Review

I struggle daily with the negative inner dialogue that’s been so deeply woven into my life. Counselling has been pretty constant throughout my years but I’ve always been disappointed with the lack of tools given to cope and/or move forward in life. So, I decided to try a life coach…

I found Mona while searching the internet and was really drawn to her bio and how she believes that even if we are experiencing pain or self doubt, we can use certain tools (like meditation and exercises to explore our past) to help learn how to be present and happy with who we are in that moment.

Mona has a natural ability to meet you where you are and communicate effectively and productively. She comes from a place of no judgement and makes you feel comfortable right away.

The longer we spoke, the more we brought to light what my true core beliefs were and what areas of myself needed more awareness and love. Plus, she is hilarious to top it all off. I have never received such kindness and attentiveness in any type of guidance until now.

Mona Sarghie took on a comprehensive editing project for me and delivered editorial excellence! I was very impressed with her eye for detail and her way with words. She demonstrated precision, clarity, and depth in literature, spelling, and grammar. Mona was able to recognize when I repeated myself throughout the entire brief and corrected any inconsistencies, improving on what was written and suggesting ways it could be more aligned with its intended audience. I highly recommend Mona as an editor for any paper, book, website etc. as she does not disappoint! Thank you Mona for exceeding my expectations and delivering fantastic results.

Working with Head Start Consulting has been like hiring a passionate life coach for my business. In my discussions with Mona, she brings curiosity to the table as well as an empathetic understanding for the goals I hadn’t yet been able to achieve. Her lack of judgement helped me to reframe my experiences and create the outcomes for my business that I truly desired.

When an employee has an issue, the entire company has an issue. Mona was able to help me put strategies in place so that my sub-ordinates can feel confident when coming to me with a difficulty they are facing as I know that I’ll have the resources to help us find the right solution. Now when my others hear me say that I have an open-door policy, because of Head Start Consulting, they know I really mean it. Head Start Consulting has had immense value added to my organization.

Working with Mona so far has been such a liberating and encouraging experience.
She has given me the confidence and knowledge I need in order to start growing my business, figure out the logistics, and what angle to approach it with.
I’ve loved how much she values my thoughts and feelings, and is constantly making sure I am aware that she is here to encourage and inspire, not to pressure or sway.

Together, Mona truly and wholeheartedly has convinced me that we can accomplish anything, and with that kind of confidence and expertise… you really can 🙂

Mona is wonderful – I am so pleased with my decision to hire her as my trainer. I haven’t been exercising for a long time and was nervous at the beginning. Mona is kind, encouraging and cheerful. From the very first session, I felt very comfortable and motivated. Knowledgeable and attentive, Mona tailors every session to my personal needs and takes in consideration my previous injury. Mona employs a wide variety of technics combined with a good understanding of nutrition based on personal experiences. She provides a nice combination of weight training and yoga that allows me to build muscles and increase flexibility. As a result, I feel invigorated and energetic. I highly recommend Mona as a personal trainer.

I have worked with many professionals throughout my journey, but Mona is a unique one to work with. I started my work journey with her, and she helped me understand the company’s internal process. Her work ethics are pristine, and she is easily adjustable to any given situation. Her ability to go out of his way to help others has made her stand out. She is one of the most dedicated professionals I’ve worked with and is willing to put that extra help whenever you need it. Her expertise is considerable, and it helped our company come up with more efficient solutions on different projects. Her contribution is valuable, and I highly recommend Mona. I look forward to working with her again.

Mona can naturally see the big picture of what is missing in your business. She doesn’t separate the person or people from the business and this allows her to find solutions that will be profoundly transformational, efficient and sustainable. She knows how to build a solid foundation by asking thoughtful and brilliant questions that challenge the client to consider their own “why”. She helps you find your originality and what makes you the best in your field, she doesn’t fabricate it- she helps you find it. She is empowering, funny, efficient and highly intelligent in all ways. There aren’t many times I like picking up my phone, but when Mona calls- I am always excited and if she leaves a voicemail, I will always listen- maybe only a few of you will understand how unique this is, and for those who do- that is how much I like having Mona be a part of my business transformation.

I am an independent contractor who was hired by Mona for a project she is working on. I really enjoy working with Mona! Her commitment is genuine and personal. Positive encouragement and attention to detail seems to come so naturally for her and are great assets! I am very grateful to have met such a wonderful human being.

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to apply personal expertise and new learnings from the MBA on a live case. Mona sets up the challenge with a well written case file portraying the client and the questions they are looking an answer for. The experience allows for new graduate MBA students, interested in consulting, to test and develop the skills and critical thinking necessary for the role. This all leads to an early exercise in which the learnings from the case, combined with Mona’s thorough and personal feedback, sets us up for success!

Mona was my coach and mentor as I created and delivered a consulting assignment for a luxury wellness client. During this process, she guided me to communicate my recommendations in a way that was both clear and easily understood by our client and helped me understand critical principles that lead to a productive client relationship. Based on that, I now feel I’m more able to develop and share recommendations that can be adopted by clients and solve their problems. It was clear to me throughout that Mona took great joy in the consulting and coaching process.
