  • Gerber has a testimonial of sorts. When she herself went to Handel for life coaching six years ago, she had everything she thought she should want: two beautiful daughters, a great husband who was willing to get up with their one- and three-year-olds in the middle of the night, a three-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. But she felt dissatisfied. (Sound familiar?) Gerber envisioned herself as a yoga woman, strong and lean, in a white room filled with light. In reality, she was 30 pounds overweight and living and working 70 hours a week in a dark, depressing apartment. She particularly wanted help conquering her fear of shooting higher professionally, of taking the tutoring business she then owned to the next level.

    One day, Gerber returned from skydiving, recommended as a fear-buster by her coach, to greet her husband. While she was gone, he told her, he'd daydreamed about her parachute failing—and the thought didn't devastate him.
