Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Impact Training for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with Impact Training uncovered a real focus by Impact Training on 100% client satisfaction. Although thousands of customers attended their trainings, Impact Training notes only a small percentage did not fully enjoy or find value in their experience. This represents just a fraction of 100,000+ seats filled since 1985 in Impact Trainings; yet the company remains concerned and committed to individually review each case. Their follow up with each trainee is extensive and thorough.

The feedback gathered is taken very seriously at Impact Training, leading to a number of improvements. [continued below]....
..... Impact Training's success is based 100% on word of mouth growth, relying completely on positive client experiences. Without overwhelmingly positive customer reactions, Impact Training would have been out of business a long time ago. If anyone has a negative experience, Impact Training works diligently to integrate constructive changes to infuse more quality into their trainings. Impact continually polls students to have most current client opinions. Most recently, Impact Training hired an outside company to conduct reviews and collect feedback about each training. Over a span of four months, upon the completion of each session, the students were asked to complete a short survey about their experience. After those four months, the review company reportedly shocked with the results. They had never seen a company receive as much positive feedback as Impact did. With the exception of 2 reviews (one was 3 out of 5 stars and one was 4 out of 5 stars) every review was 5 out 5 stars. In their experience, this level of customer satisfaction was unheard of. Although the majority of trainees complete Impact Training with a positive experience, if you have had a negative experience, Impact would like you to call them at 801-572-9700 and find a resolution.

Based on a thorough review of Impact Training, it is Ripoff Report's expectation that new customers will have a positive and life changing experience with Impact Training. Since opening their doors in 1985, Impact Training has consistently sought customer feedback to improve every facet of their operation and achieve full client satisfaction.

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by David Berger during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Impact Training.

Impact Training is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

Impact Training is a company specializing in providing training to help people grow in both their personal and professional lives. “[We] help people get rid of self-imposed limitations,” explains David Berger, a representative of the company. Impact Training “provides educational experiences to empower the human spirit towards free unconditional loving and harmonious living,” he states. Leads are acquired solely through word of mouth referrals, they do not conduct cold calling. Every Tuesday, Impact Training hosts an informational session and invite the referrals to attend and learn about the services offered. “We also call potential seekers and educate them on our offerings,” explains Mr. Berger.


At times, a customer may fee dissatisfied or unhappy with the service they’ve received. “We essentially have people ‘look in the mirror.’ Sometimes people don’t really like what they see. There could be certain situations where people feel uncomfortable being called out for things, say being late. We make punctuality a very important part of our trainings and if you are late, you will be called out in front of everyone. This could be a scary situation for some people,” explains Mr. Berger. However, he states that this is not a common occurrence and they only have a 1% dissatisfaction rating. To resolve the situation if a customer feels uncomfortable or unhappy, the team at Impact Training focuses on face-to-face interaction, to determine what the customer is learning and invite them to re-commit to the training. Mr. Berger states that the customers usually resolve the situation very civilly; however, refunds are not given once a customer begins the training process. If a problem exists, the team at Impact Training follows up with the customer within 24-48 hours after resolution of the issue, to ensure their continued satisfaction.

Since receiving complaints on Ripoff Report, Impact Training has focused on weekly trainings conducted by the manager to update the employees and keep them current on their training. They’ve also employed the use of a coach/mentor system, which is a one-on-one system between the mentor and the customer. “Before, you would come to class each day and be expected to come back the next day. We now have a coach that follows up every day with you,” explains Mr. Berger. However, no one at Impact Training has any credentials or accreditations, but Mr. Berger states that this is not necessary. “We train with life’s experience because we educate about life,” he explains.

Mr. Berger and the team at Impact Training recognize the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, and the platform it provides for businesses and clients to interact and resolve issues. “It means reputation repair – it gives us a chance to get the truth out there about what we really do and how we help people every day,” he states.


"We have included a sampling of what real students actually say about their Impact Training experience:”

"I'm learning to live in the moment and to lean in to my life! I'm creating love and trust in my world and to be my word.”

“It took me 7 years to go to Impact. I cannot believe I was so skeptical. Impact Training is a series of experiences that assisted me to look inward and release bad experiences from my past and to appreciate life. Appreciation in good times and bad. My experience started in January 2013; life still gets better every day. It sounds strange but I see issues that come up with a clearer outlook. Everyone seems to receive different gifts about themselves because it is individual learning. It isn't a lecture it is a different learning experience I have ever know. I am thankful everyday that I went through their doors! I have lifelong friends across the country now that I consider family! All I can say is don't be like me and waste 7 years - go to a free Tuesday class or phone conference. Sit in the back of the room or be silent on the phone and just listen...listen to your heart and you will know if this is right for you!”

"When I started my first training with Impact Training, it was completely different than what I thought it would be. Six years later I honestly can't believe (or I can) how the trainings have positively affected my life. Relationships are better. Businesses are better and I can create peace in my life at any moment I choose...amazing experience...I love experiential learning...go for it!”

“As I have attended courses at Impact Training, my life has been dramatically improved in a positive way! I have gained clarity for my life's purpose, who I am, and why I am here. I have released guilt, regret, and resentment towards others and myself that I had upon entering Impact. I gained a new-found gratitude for a 5 year relationship with my ex-husband that I used to feel pain and sorrow towards; I often victimized myself. I learned to be accountable for me and my life. Impact worked based on how well I kept my word and trusted the process. I came up with all of my own profound answers and most of the time it felt like I wasn't learning something new, but rather remembering.”

“My experiences at Impact Training continue to improve my relationship with others every day. I was very shy and mad about negative things that had hurt me or betrayed me. I would smile through life but suffer in silence. Impact has brought out the positive happy side and assisted me to appreciate everyday as a gift no matter what. I am so grateful for my angels Diana and Kelly for introducing me to this beautiful place. It holds a special place in my heart :)”

"It was amazing. I was inspired when I saw my sister graduate from Quest and then Summit and seeing the huge changes. I have known her all of my life. My biggest break through was letting go of all the pain and feel weightless filled with light of love. And by looking into someone's eyes seeing their spirit; not by outward appearance - but the inside. Letting myself go being fearless, finding my voice. Being me and only me and I love me. Sharing my love with everyone even strangers. And now I truly see and the world is so much brighter than it has been in a long time. And I am happier then I have been in a long time. I can be happy for no reason at all just because it’s my choice. I will never forget Quest - it was a breakthrough for me. I would recommend Quest for anyone wanting a change and feel that there is more to life. I am so excited to do SUMMIT!!”

“Walking through the doors at the Impact Training Center I felt swallowed up by my insecurities. I would spend my days replaying all of my failures through my head and worrying about how I was supposed to fix my future. Then I stepped into the loving, accepting environment there and had the opportunity to take an honest look at myself and to take on my life. That act alone has empowered me to claim freedom, clarity, and passion for life again! I know who I am. I know my purpose in life. I know that I have a valuable contribution to this world that is unique to me. And what's more I know that I am deserving of these amazing miracles in my life .I literally can't stop smiling these days!" ~ D

"My experience was great! I shifted several times during ropes, I had the time of my life and want to experience it again and I know I can throughout my life. Thank you so much for creating this program, I'm so grateful.”

"My experience with Impact Training’s courses was fantastic! I have learned many new tools show up to life positive manner reflecting my own magnificence! It was amazing. I learned to forgive myself. To love myself. To trust myself. I learned who I was. I had a spiritual and uplifting experience. I learned to live in the moment and to be my Inner child.”

“I went through Impact Training in 2006. It was the best thing I have ever done not only for myself but the change it had on my family and other relationships in life. Impact opened my eyes to who I really am and that everyone has a purpose in life to fulfill. Impact, I feel, is a very inspired program. GO impact!”

"My Impact Transformation started in August 2013 and now after completing all the training I am living a life based on LOVE and not fear or anger. It has brought me a true sense of peace knowing who I truly am and always have been. I started my training with no trust and a body that was recently diagnosed with some confused cells (cancer). I completed my training in March 2014 and was recently blessed with the news that I had NO detectable cancer in my body and I left my doctors scratching their heads. I can't really say Impact cured me but I can say that as a result of it I was able to do what we are all able to do and that is healing from within. All my relationships in my life have so much more depth and meaning now and I once again am able to LOVE and TRUST as I have always deserved to. I will forever be in gratitude to the amazing staff and one-of-a-kind trainers at Impact Training that do this out of pure love and inspire me to continue my spiritual, physical and emotional growth. The beauty of the Impact vision is that they were not there to fix or change me, but rather they have been and always will be there to wake me up and take accountability for my life and the way I show up for others. No two people come in or out of the training the same way, it was all based on me and how I was willing to take it on. To share this life journey with so many of the most amazing new friends has been one of the most powerful heartwarming moments in my life. These are not just passing friendships but lifelong relationships with beautiful people that will always be there as a part of my life. Thank you thank you thank you Impact trainings for the tools you have given me to take on my life and come from my heart.”

“I started my training at Impact Training in May of 2013. Since then, I have had two very important relationships healed. As soon as my perspective changed…meaning that I stopped judging others, and accepted them exactly as they are…shifts began to happen and so did the miracles. My relationships in my family have been greatly improved and I attribute all of that to the shifting of my perspective….letting go of the stinkin’ thinkin’. Although a lot of these principles may seem simple, and certainly not new, oftentimes they are were not EASY to CONSISTENTLY apply in my life. It seems almost magical the way my view of my life has changed. What always seemed like a chore, no longer does. I see the good in things. I think of things to do that bring me joy. Lots of it! My life and its purpose are more clearly defined than ever before. I am more confident from within and have more trust and faith in my choices, I am excited about life and the possibilities I have to create a wonderful life for myself…A LIFE FILLED WITH LOVE, LAUGHTER, FULFILLMENT AND JOY! “

“My work with Impact Training has made many positive changes in my life. All of my relationships have improved immensely, including my relationship with myself. Prior to my trainings I lived with fear of the future and regret of the past. I now have an expanded understanding of who I am. My past, present and future are now clear and all positive. I have made lifelong friends and am excited to share this experience with others. I would recommend Impact Training to anyone who wishes to expand their life!”

"Impact Training has changed my life and my relationships with my family and friends. The biggest change since I began my trainings is in my relationships with myself and others. I am a better father, husband and friend. I also have a greater spirituality in my life. If you are unhappy or dissatisfied with any aspect of you then you deserve to visit Impact Training.”

“The most heartfelt experience I have ever had in regards to myself”

"This experience was miraculous, this is the first time in memory I can say I love myself. I'm perfect! It's amazing to feel this way and because I love myself I can love other people. It's the greatest gift I could receive.”

"My experience at Quest was real love throughout. Support from other Quest trainees to those who have completed them and are still there to serve, to assist, to support. It was quite moving and I have and will continue to recommend this to everyone that wants more out of life. Thanks to all the wonderful people on staff!”

“My experience at first was really hard to take in and didn't know if it was worth my money - then after opening my mind to the possibilities and trusting, I can't put into words how amazing it was. I was able to find who I really am and loving every minute! I also can see the beauty in the little things in life that I always overlooked and I would pay countless dollars to feel the way I get to! I wish everyone was brave enough to take the biggest challenge of their own life!!!!”

"My experience at Impact Training has been empowering!!! I have felt such an amazing shift in my life and will be forever grateful. My trainer was such an inspiration and the staff insightful and 110% loving and supportive in all the right ways. Thank you!”

"Impact Training is the best thing that has ever happened to me! It has been life changing and life saving, to say the least. Through my trainings I have learned how to let go of my past, freeing me from holding back in life. I gained such confidence with myself and confidence in my purpose in life. I was able to start loving me for the first time in my life. I have had such a huge amount of healing from my past that I have been able to create an amazing future for myself. I found my true beauty through the work I put in at Impact Training. Impact Training guided me to find my own answers and to be accountable for who I am. When I walked into their doors for the first time I was nervous and shy and had no idea what I was getting myself into. I didn't think it was possible to change my life, attitude, confidence, strength, love, and life in just a matter of days but it did. All of that has changed and more. For the first time in my life I am really living! So many members of my family, friends, and even co-workers have seen a complete transformation in me that it has inspired them to go through Impact trainings as well. It has been an amazing experience to see them gain all of those things too. One of the things I like the most about Impact is they don't force any opinions on you. They just give you the tools and exercises to come to your own conclusions and to have your own breakthroughs. You immediately feel safe, respected, and unconditionally loved there. The minute you step into their doors you have a huge new family of supporters that are there for you without any expectations. It was a feeling I had never felt before. It has been only a year since I started my first training and I have created huge miracles for not only myself, but for my family and friends and even for my community. I believe that if we taught this kind of training in our schools, the world would be an entirely different place. But, they don't teach about confidence, love, self-worth, individuality, or purpose in school so I am just glad I learned it so I can guide my son through life with those lessons. Thank you, thank you, thank you Impact!!!!”

Impact Training Cult--Brainwashed and then attacked/threatened upon deciding to leave bluffdale, Utah

I was recruited by someone with who my best friend works.  We were told that this was a professional development/career advancement convention.  This sounded great, as I am a teacher from California.  I knew immediately that we had been mislead.  People were harrassed and yelled at, and I saw that weak people were broken down IMMEDIATELY.  Everyone in attendance had crazy stories of abuse and neglect and constantly broke down.  Hans Berger and staff attacked these people, blaming them for all they had been through.  I was forced to to sit in front of a chair and pretend like it was someone from my family who hurt me and beat it!  I refused, insisting that no one from my family had ever hurt me enough to want to beat a chair.  I was threatened for "not going the distance." 

On day one, staff made us turn in all prescribed medications, and we had to promise to not drink caffeine and alcohol during the training (I'm surprised we were not stripped-searched).  It was obvious from the beginning that the cult was trying to break people down, followed by mind control...We were given new names--most of which were disturbing, and then forced to wear name-tags.  We were kept in the training room until 12 AM some nights and then required to be back at "training" at 8 am the next morning. 

In the end, it was my own choice to attend this cult convention in utah (I was mislead, but it WAS my choice).  WHAT I DID NOT CHOOSE IS WHAT HAPPENED TO ME WHEN I TOLD THEM THAT THIS WAS NOT FOR ME, AND THAT I WAS NOT COMING BACK. I WAS TRAPPED IN A VEHICLE WITH MY ''ANGEL'' AND ANOTHER CULT MEMBER.  THEY SCREAMED AT ME AND HARRASSED AND THREATENED MY LIFE.  I have never been so scared, but they did eventually take me to a hotel across town.  I was on the 6am flight out of there the following morning. I am very lucky that I am a strong-willed person who was smart enough to recognize that this is a scam and cult.  I have family members to work on the utah state legislature, which has been trying to disassemble this cult for years.  I filed a police report, and now a restraining order against the person who recruited me.  I have now a lawyer fighting my case.

I don't want anyone else to make the same mistake I did.  I only wish I had read one of these reports before attending this cult

Blame game for certain

AUTHOR: Psyched - ()

I agree with the other comment. It is more likely that the marriage had problems before the training. Additionally, it is difficult to judge something until you have experienced it. I am a grad, and yes I too took some psychology classes. In fact, I took them all. I am always surprised when someone with a bachelors degree in psychology claims to be an expert. Nonetheless, I would encourage you to look deeper into yourself, as I am sure there were many challenges in your relationship. With over 30,000 graduates it is interesting that just a few people claim harm from the training. as of the time of this post, there is just nine complaints. If you know anything about research, that is not even clinically significant. The rate would be 99.997 % success! and just .0003% failure rate. Though the training is in no way a replacement for therapy, given that number it has a much higher success rate. I am smart enough to realize that others may not have gotten the result they sought, but still just nine complaints. It is also interesting how some of the complaints could not possible be true. 

I am also surprised how people complain about the cost. I have attended many seminars over the years, and sent hundreds and even thousands. In the mental health industry people send thousands on therpy, sometimes hundreds per hour and sometimes never see results either. I guess that is okay, becase most people will just bill their insurance company so if it does not provide any result they are okay with it. 

One final thought... Had you just completed the training, you would have seen something much different. If your marriage was important to you and your wife asked you to commit to 4 days to participate in something that was import to her, you may still be married today. Just my two cents

#2 Consumer Comment

Very different perspective indeed

AUTHOR: Psyched - ()

I have a much different perspective, perhaps more in alignment with some of the comments. Let me first start out by saying that I almost laughed with the complaint, as Impact training is certainly not a cult. I am very surprised when some posts their experience, and openly admits to have left early before the training was complete. Ever hear the expression "never judge a book by its cover". Sadly, it sounds like you did. You took part in a couple of hours of a multiway event; had you stayed, you would have had a much different experience. 

Impact training is a personal growth seminar company. Like other simular companies ( and there are many out ther), the focus is to help people take a look at themselves, and exam some of the limiting belief that is created. Think you or others do not have these, guess again; we all do. I am a professional in the mental health industry, and I am also a graduate of the training. I participated in the seminar about 20 years ago, and it is one of the best I have evere participated in. the funny thing is that yea the staff will ask you to give up alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine for 4 days... Is that a bad thing? Seriously, anyone that put that stuff down for just 4 days may really have a problem. As for medications prescribed by a doctor, that is a fauls statement and adverse to their policy. 

A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to attend a Tony Robbins seminar. There were about 2,500 people there, all of whom paid $500 or more each for a four day seminar. On day one after 12 hours in the training room, we went outside to firewalk. Yep, walk on hot coals. leavibg after midnight, we were back at 9am and worked a 10-12 hour day. Hummmm, I wonder if Tony is a cult leader too??? Or perhaps it is possible that there is an effort to really do a lot of great work for people in just a few days. There is also an effort to be mindful of work schedules, starting in the afternoon for the first 2 days. In my experience, I have never seen someone complete the training who did not say it was one of the best experiences of their life. The only people I have ever heard complain are those that did not attend or dropped out the first night. 

On a related note, I know dozens of grads who have better marriages, relationships with their family, who have started businesses, gotten new jobs, increased their income, quit unhealthy habits, and gone on to do some amazing things in life... Thanks in part to participating in Impact training. I myself was inspired to return to school, complete ungraded and graduate school all as a result of this training. Think of it more as a support group for success, as 10's of thousands of graduates over a 30 year span have experienced. 

Let's see... Here are some discrepancies... Check them out for yourself, most the info is available on their website: staff do not threaten or intimidate. There is some confrontation, but handled very professionally, with staff who are very experienced. Participants are not forced to hand over meds or anything else; just asked to make a commitment to do something different. Again, it is a solid policy that any percription meds are to be used as ordered by a doctor. The time line is really off in the complaint; as posted on their website, it starts at 3PM the first 2 days, and 11am the next 2 days. The scheduled end time is 11:30, and they note it may run late. So if you left at midnight, that really does not sound late... not sure why you would state 8am start time??? Just not true. 

I am sorry you were trapped in your car by your sponsor, but given that this training is 100% referral based! you were trapped by someone whom you must know. As for the Utah legislature action, in searching the state website there is no current or past action against. The police report may have happened I suppose, but seems strange you needed to get a restraining order against someone who you claim is a friend of a friend who live in another state???  I suppose if there were. Problem such as this, would have been easy to get support from the police as many are grads. 

I doubt the validity of this post, as there are too many details that are easily disputed on the company website. Perhaps this is someone who did have a random problem and a very bizarre experience, but it is unlikely given the long and positive history of this company.

Impact Training Experience

AUTHOR: Jumpypaint - ()

The Quest Training is an opportunity for the trainee to take a hard look at how the trainee shows up in life. My experience put me on the path to a less judgemental life of myself and those around me. What I realized is that I filled my life with drama and gossip. it always had to be someone elses fault--if business was bad I wasn't to blame, if my marriage wasn't working it was my wifes fault, if my relationships were not working, it was always them--never me! The training gave me an opportunity to take a look at me, how I did life. The result of the trainings, is a saved marriage (that was hours from its end) and communicative relationships without blame, expectation, comparison or judgement. 

My experience of some, who left the training room were clearly not ready to take an honest look at themselves. They were more about blaming someone else for why its not working, which gives a clue to how some might show up writing a report about an organization who creates the perfect space for learning how to do life different. I get that some people will be put off by the methods, processes and style of the training, afterall it is hard at times to be the creator of all the junk we carry around. In short, unless a trainee is tired of how life is showing up for them I would counsel them to go see a feel good therapist who will collect a fee to hear the patient complain how everyone else is doing it to them. On the other hand, if the trainee is sick and tired of being sick and tired, then this is the perfect training for them. But be forewarned, if you are looking for the trainer to pass you over with all the buckets of crap you brought to the room, think again, you're gonna get the training you deserve. The trainer will be a committed stand to act in partnership with you to walk you through getting rid of all the history that has you stuck, which may or may not involve beating a chair, disclosing which mind altering drugs you are on or other medications which might indicate other issues that could expose others to possible violent episodes. If the trainer yells at a trainee, perhaps, its just another game the trainee plays in life making it someone else fault. I witnessed people saying that they aren't gonna do this and they're are gonna do that---So the trainer asks "why are you here then?" If change is not what you came here to claim, Get out! People have come to take on their lives--this is not some feel good class or seminar.

In the end, what will you give up to find a path of peace? Will you disclose your meds to find peace? Will you share your most guarded secrets to find peace? What will it take to finally let go of all the junk, history and pain? The Impact Training is the simplest way I have discovered to let go and just be who I am. If a loving relationship infused with honesty, love, commitment, honor, communication and self worth is what you are looking for, this is what I claimed for myself at Impact. I would have gladly paid double for the blessings in my life I received from my training.

AUTHOR: Joely - (United States of America)

I too went to Impact.  I had a different experience.  It was the best thing I ever did.  The chair beating was not to pretend your beating up a family member at all. It was to simply let it all out so that when you went on to the next phase of forgiving them you could leave all of it behind.   Everything that they do has a meaning and requires one to be able to look outside the box a little.  The going to your own funural was brilliant!!  And it worked for everyone I know that went through.  It was to see that if you are taking life for granted than your not living.  To awaken you to breath in the morning sunshine or soak up every moment possible with your kids.. To LIVE!!!  To be able to see things from different perspectives is a wonderful gift that I gained from my Impact experience and your perspective is yours, But to say that you want to save others from going is just absurd.  I know many who have completely transformed their lives after going.  I know at times some people get into the victim mode about the negatives as they are learning to see things differently because they are scared. I believe that is you right now.  What I can agree with you on  is the money thing and that there are a few flaws in the company.  But it's not all bad. It has changed the lives for many and transformed their future and what they have been able to accomplish in life. Not just financially but with real authentic love and apreciating the finer things in life.  If you havn't gotten to that point yet than I can see why your frustrated and I wish the best to you in finding what ever it is your looking for.  I wouldn't trade my experience for the World!! And I hope that every person in this world gets the chance to experience a self awareness training at some point or another and that they let go and learn to enjoy life.  :)
