“The AoC taught me about 98% of what I was hoping it would. I’m now attracting more and higher-quality women into my life, I’m more confident in any social environment and I have much better body language and non-verbal communication. I now really look forward to my nights out and crazy stuff seems to be happening all the time. One thing that really exceeded my expectations on the course was how much fun I had. The coaches were awesome and they made a process that I was fearful of seem really fun and really simple. The 5 days flew by and before really realizing it, I had all these new skills under my belt- skills that are going to be invaluable for the rest of my life. The guys are on the course with me were friggin’ awesome too. Cheers guys!”
“Signing up for the AoC Bootcamp has been my greatest investment to improve myself and change my life.
I gained so much confidence in my ability to connect and deepen my relationships with people. It’s amazing how much easier it has been to meet new people and create instant connections. I have the exact same personality, the only thing that has changed is my mindset and a few behaviors.
Since taking Bootcamp, my social life has been the busiest and happiest it’s ever been. My next few weekends are busy with events to attend or host. New friends and dates every week, getting invites to parties, trips or social outings. Thanks to what I’ve learned, I’ve had gorgeous women and cool guys approach me at venues.
I am so grateful to the coaches during the program, for their guidance, great energy patience in teaching me the skills we needed to accomplish our goals. If they were not by my side while doing the exercises, I wouldn’t’ have made this much progress.
I would recommend the Bootcamp to anyone who is ready to step up their game in life. “
“Before going through the AoC, my success with women and enjoyment on nights out were hit or miss. Like so many others, I found The Podcast and slowly started seeing changes in myself and the way others saw me. The Podcast is excellent, but nothing can compare to getting the experience, knowledge and coaching from the AoC team in person. My confidence in social settings is sky high and women have taken notice.
My body language, nonverbal communication and vocal tonality were things I had no idea I was doing wrong until I saw myself on camera. I was super anxious about taking the bootcamp, but the awesome team at the AoC made something I was fearful of into something that was a ton of fun and easy to understand. The skills I learned are invaluable, and they help me in all areas of my life. The Coaches are amazing and the alumni that I’ve met and/or talked to are awesome. I’ve since left a job I didn’t have the stones to quit and started my own company. I’ve never been happier. Don’t wait to sign up, just do it already.”
“I was super hesitant about AoC because it seemed like a big investment. I had done other workshops with other so-called ‘coaches’ and while they were kind of helpful, they didn’t really make any lasting change. However when it came to meeting women and managing relationships, I wasn’t getting anywhere on my own and needed to do something. The AoC bootcamp turned out to be a ton of fun and gave me just what I was looking for.
The guys in my program were awesome and the instructors were great at both pushing me well past my comfort zone and providing support and encouragement if I got overwhelmed. After AoC, I went on more dates and met more amazing people in the two months following my program than I had in the two years prior. It’s a great feeling to know that on any given day I can walk up to anyone on the street, in a coffee shop, or wherever, and have a good shot at forming a connection.”
“Before going through AoC I was on the way to leave for the Navy. I was mentally running away from the life I had because after finishing college I couldn’t get the level of work I hoped for and expected, and was scared. Now 6 months after Bootcamp I have a new job and will have grown my annual income by over 60%. This one aspect alone made Bootcamp worth it for me.
My success with women before Bootcamp was on a hit or miss level. After a string of getting turned down by multiple women at the end of 2015 I knew I needed some help. Both during Bootcamp and since I have had more consistent success then ever in my life. I’ve been able to meet in women in all different situations, not just at bars. The things I learned in Bootcamp – from body language, banter, and rapport strategies – work for attracting all types of women of all races.
Bootcamp at AoC also gave me a heightened confidence in being myself. I’ve always thought because I was black I had to fit in and make others comfortable because of my race and being a big black guy, especially at work, growing up I was always told “act white” in professional situations. This gave me a level of anxiety because I was constantly holding a social mask to the world. Now, I’m confident being myself, no more anxiety in social situations and it has allowed me to connect more deeply with others and I’m sure that’s why I was able to get the job I have now. “
“The Art of Charm changed my life–so much so that I (and friends I haven’t seen in months) barely recognize me. I’m still the same person, to be sure, just with lots of new skills and without so many of the fears and insecurities that had been holding me back before I began listening to The Art of Charm Podcast just a few months ago. I had high expectations going in to my boot camp and can honestly say that AOC exceeded them–so much so that I came back a few months later for a second boot camp and will be going to another one next quarter as well.
The people in my program ranged in age from 25 to 46, and all were dealing with different personal challenges, but by the end of the week, ALL of them had made tremendous strides.
As AOC will tell you, personal transformation is hard work–and continues after your program. That said, if you listen to the coaches, you will start seeing results instantly.
On my first field night–after taking to heart some of the tips on body language, banter, and mindset–I definitely had a few “wow, that never happened before” moments with the women I was approaching (and for the first time, the ones who were approaching me). For the first time, I was actually enjoying myself in a bar environment. I remember thinking it must be a fluke, then going back on the second field night and getting even better results.
AoC boot camp is an investment, and will only be worth it if you re truly ready to make a life change. But take my word for it: After a week with the AOC crew, you WILL start attracting higher-quality women (and more of them). In fact, I’m convinced that the average guy who goes through an AOC bootcamp will end up marrying somebody he’s much more jazzed about than he would’ve otherwise. What would that be worth to you?”
“AoC is a life changing program for anyone! Before AoC I lacked that bulletproof confidence in myself that I needed to really move forward. My business and personal relationships were floundering and I felt lost. I was super nervous going into it thinking I might not get what I was looking for. I can genuinely say I got what I was looking for and more and I’m now a better version of myself. I have never felt so fantastic in my life and I have AoC to thank for it!”
“When I made the decision to attend an AoC program, I didn’t realize I was making a choice that would change my life forever. I am so much more confident in my ability to attract and connect with both men and women. The coaches were amazing! My favorite part about the program was the tailored feedback, I grew by leaps and bounds each day because of the coach and peer feedback I received. I am not scared about going out anymore or even worried about messing up. The AoC team has created the perfect atmosphere for people to feel comfortable with failing: I now look forward to when I fail because of the huge returns and lessons that come from it. Take a program and see for yourself how you can bring out the real you. This is an experience you will never forget!”
“One of the best times AoC helped me in my personal life was when I moved to DC after graduation. In college, it wasn’t necessarily difficult to meet new people, but I struggled having meaningful relationships with the people I had met. When moving to DC, I utilized some advice such as having monthly events and providing more value to the people I met, which allowed me to build a more vibrant social circle. In one instance, I met a girl that was best friends with a couple of my buddies – frankly, I didn’t think we had much in common when we first met, but she was a very outgoing person who was friendly and kept implementing AoC steps when we hung out. After a few times, we ended up coordinating to be on the same soccer team and she ended up being one of my best friends a year later. From there, it opened up a whole circle of her soccer/graduate friends and it was something I would never have experienced had I not taken the time to push myself outside my comfort zone.
One of my main reasons for attending AoC was for the professional development that would benefit me in the workplace. I was started a new job in the spring and understood that taking a program to improve my personal and professional skills would be invaluable to starting work at a new job. While in my first few weeks there, I was able to connect very well with upper management through taking the time to get to know their interests, mirroring some of their actions and bantering with them to have respectable fun in the workplace. In particular, there were a few times that I had to work with a manager who was more difficult than others but I was able to connect with her better than other representatives in my position. Overall, my connections there allowed me to enjoy work better, have a little more leeway in the office and also give me more autonomy in my work.
A few months ago, I went out with a few AoC alumni during one of my last nights in DC. There weren’t any specific memories that stood out above the rest, but the camaraderie and support hanging out with those guys was second to none. No matter how social interactions went, there was nothing but positivity and great memories. The level of support was something I wasn’t used to with some of my non-AoC friends and it made me better by being around them. Ultimately, that’s one of the best takeaways I have with AoC – that you can only rise as high as your five closest friends. And since I’ve finished the program, I’ve been taking a hard look at the people I socialize with because of how influential it is on my life.
“When signing up for the AoC Bootcamp I expected results afterwards, but when the Bootcamp was actually over, I couldn’t believe how many realizations and mind-blowing moments I had about my progress, potential and confidence level. I had a blast with the coaches and the other guys who were in the same position as me that were also a great source of encouragement and helped push my boundaries even further. AoC has given me a tool-belt of skills that will help me in virtually all scenarios whether it be with women, friends, family or colleagues. The program has given me a new outlook on life and an experience that will be with me forever, and for that I am very grateful.”
“I’ve come to realize that the best investment you can make is not in a house a car or any other material thing, but in yourself. And that s what an AOC bootcamp is. It’s an investment in your social skills, in self-reflection and the ability to open up, to name just a few. The good news is it s a heap of fun, you will meet cool people and the instructors genuinely care about seeing you succeed because, after all, they went through the same process. Sure you will be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone, but that’s all part of the fun and adds to the feeling of exhilaration when you begin to achieve your goals!”
