Smilinggg Testimonials

Smilinggg's positive outlook, influence, and movement is literally day by day strengthening me in my time of need! 

Adding Smilinggg to my daily routine has helped a lot. I regularly walk 3 miles and endeavour to smile and engage the passers by with the happy positive greeting, and amazingly I can't get over how good I feel but also how well it is received when you really mean it....

Such a fantastic idea let's get the whole world smilinggg bro.

Pete Keogh

Smilinggg has been a welcome addition to my own movement for mental health practise.

I really believe in connecting the mind and body with movement.

Smilinggg has brought me to a place where I consciously engage with the virtues of gratitude, generosity and growth.

With anxiety lurking in the corners of my mind, I have benefitted from a glance at my Smilinggg wristband to remind me to keep moving forward, keep sharing the smiles and taking the steps. 

Some of the most minor passing by moments are now happy memories of a smile shared with a stranger. 

Steps and Smiles for everyone. = )

You don't know how much the Smilinggg Daily Practice helped me and to change my lifestyle. Now I'm vegetarian at home.

With the books you recommend, I found myself. I became more aware with my anger. I do more exercise (although I don't lose weight, lol, but I promise you I still remember your advice...

"the biggest success is to stop focusing directly on the physique. Your body is a byproduct of your lifestyle, not the other way round."

I always appreciate and admire the motivation you and Smilinggg provide. Your theory (philosophy) of life that you're spreading.

I admire you as you're a fitness trainer too. When you have time, please share the way that lead you to "you today"!
