Here are bona fide testimonials from students who have taken our course. Everyone on this page is an extraordinary human being — the common thread is that they knew there was another level in their life they wanted to achieve, and they were open to coaching to make it happen.
“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…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, and 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. “
“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. AoC is an investment in your social skills, in self-reflection, and the ability to open up, to name just a few.
It is 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!”
"The Art of Charm changed my life so much. Friends that 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. I had high expectations going into my Bootcamp and can honestly say that AoC exceeded them — so much so that I came back a few months later for a second Bootcamp 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.
AoC Bootcamp is an investment, and will only be worth it if you are 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?”
I cannot speak highly enough of Johnny, Justin, Alex, Alara, AJ, Jordan, and everyone else even remotely associated with the AoC. To say that they have been a monumental influence in my life over the past few months is a gross understatement. I consider the AoC my second home in all regards, have gone back several times, and will continue to. The concerns regarding so many other Bootcamps simply fade away after realizing who exactly the people running the AoC really are. would recommend the AoC to any human with a pulse.
I took the program because I was ready for some change. I think it was Tony Robbins says that, "A profound change only comes from one of two things, either inspiration or desperation." In my case, it was desperation. I was involved with someone that was not emotionally available yet. My friend turned me on to the podcast. I was looking to learn ways on how to become better with women. That's what peaked my interest.
The reason why I chose Art of Charm is because they were more authentic compared to other programs. I was pretty much sold on it after I listened to the second or third podcast. I know that I could take the shorter path, which was to invest in myself and take the Art of Charm Boot Camp. I had a phenomenal time while I was taking the program in L.A. We thought the coach Johnny knew what he was talked about, and he gained our trust in many aspects, especially being able to join the alumni network afterwards. It was a bonus and wonderful experience.
Really, the boot camp was really a springboard to my improvement, not just dealing with women, social interactions in general but also my path and self improvement. Just a gold mine of information. Not that I have to consciously apply it, but it just naturally becomes a part of who you are. You start attracting the people based on the person that you are and what you actually put into yourself.
“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.”
“The AoC taught me about 98% of what I was hoping it would. I’m now attracting more 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 me process that I was fearful of….fun. The five 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.”
“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 can genuinely say that I got what I was looking for and more. 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 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.”
There's a lot of other boot camps and similar programs out there, but the content that came out of the podcast was always more authentic. It wasn't tricks or hacks or anything like that. It seemed to be from more genuine standpoint - the better way to become a man or a person.
The Art of Charm seemed like it was just a more higher level more grown up version of everything else out there. It seemed like everyone else was more interested in doing infield pickups and the Art of Charm is really not that. It's part of it but it's just a piece of it, the total package.
I went in with a pretty open mindset. I really didn't have that high expectations. I knew I was going to get something out of it, but what we got ... Just how the days progressed, the lectures, working with the other guys and an immersion into the whole thing. It was amazing how it all came together that last night. Just to see the growth in myself and everybody else that we went through the program with.
The Boot Camp gave me a different way of looking at things. One of my big takeaways was how everybody goes through life in auto-pilot mode. We have to be leaders and snap ourselves and people out of that auto-pilot mode. Life is too short to go through life with a frown on your face and being unhappy and not being your true authentic self.
It's probably been about a few months since I ended my program. One thing I discovered is this is all a learnable skill. You get a lot out of the program, but a big part of it was meeting up with other people once you're out of the program and just putting the stuff into practice whether it's to be going to random events and just going by yourself or going with the other alumni, and having that attitude that we're going to go out together and we're going to practice this stuff. You may not have good success at first but we're going to get better and better at this.
“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 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 because after finishing college I couldn’t get the level of work I hoped for. Now, six months after Bootcamp I have a new job and 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 than ever in my life. I’ve been able to meet 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. Growing up I was always told to “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, [with] no more anxiety in social situations…it has allowed me to connect more deeply with others.. I’m sure that’s why I was able to get the job I have now. “
“When I made the decision to attend an AoC program, my choice 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 of the program was the tailored feedback; I grew by leaps and bounds each day because of the coach and peer feedback.
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!”
“When moving to DC, I utilized some AoC Bootcamp 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.
One of my main reasons for attending AoC was for the professional development that would benefit me in the workplace. I 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. 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. The camaraderie and support hanging out with those guys were 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.”
