At Sunnyvale Hypnosis Center, certified consulting hypnotist David Allen strives to liberate patients from self-limiting thoughts and unhealthy habits by bringing the conscious and subconscious mind back into balance. In specialty weight-loss sessions, David combines his certifications from the National Guild of Hypnotists and the Society of Applied Hypnosis with training from virtual gastric-band creator Sheila Granger to help clients obey their bodies' fullness signals and eat smaller portions. Allen also aims to counteract the negative subconscious influences that damage confidence, make it difficult to quit smoking, or cause a person to unwittingly draw mustaches on the covers of library books, and⎯with a doctor's referral⎯may address medical conditions such as fibromyalgia or chronic pain.
During his eight years of service in the Marine Corps, Montique Williams led an effort to whip soldiers into shape and to maintain weight standards.

When he helmed his own cross-training program, he applied that lesson to his classes, adjusting drills and motivational strategies to suit each student. Likewise, he tailors his nutrition coaching to different goals and body types, drawing from detailed questionnaires, food journals, and trips to the grocery store to formulate dietary plans.
