To Whom it May Concern,
I hereby attest to the integrity of our esteemed friend Rabbi Eliezer Raphael (Lazer) Brody, may he merit long life, whom I have known well for many years. He is both a Torah scholar and a G-d fearing individual who is exacting in his observance of Torah and its commandments. Not only is he active in kiruv and outreach, but he has vast knowledge in the area of health and wellness, proper nutrition, biomechanics and fitness as well as proper functioning of the limbs and much more. Therefore, I stand behind his efforts to coach and advise people in maintaining physical and emotional health and wellness while avoiding suffering. With the Almighty's assistance, may he succeed and may he avoid any pitfalls, since all his efforts are in pure faith. May he be a good emissary in advising, helping and healing people and may the passage "I will put no disease upon you…for I am Hashem Who heals you" (Exodus 15:26), be manifest in him.
I hereby sign,
It has been my pleasure to maintain a close association with Rabbi Lazer Brody during the past ten years. I have seen first hand how he utilizes his extraordinarily unique background as rabbi, former IDF combat soldier, certified personal trainer and health coach to help people dramatically improve their quality of life both on a physical and spiritual level. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend him and am confidant that those who seek his help and guidance will find him a capable and reliable health and wellness coach.

Rabbi Lazer Brody is a brilliant, charismatic modern-day renaissance man whose appreciation and drive for excellence has made him a master of a wide-range of fields. He is a: Torah scholar, musician, author, agriculturalist, photographer, an expert in health, nutrition, fitness and much more. I have merited to observe, Rabbi Brody from a somewhat unique perspective. For nine years I have known him as a friend and colleague. Comrades in arms we traveled the world – flying, boarding, eating and praying together, often in very close quarters. When it comes to health and fitness, I know that he doesn’t just talk the talk he walks the walk. Even those decades younger than himself are not able to keep up with his strength, stamina and will. On one trip there were about fifteen flights to fifteen cities in less than three weeks. The day started at 3 am and after traveling, private appointments, speaking engagements, book signing and more, Rabbi Brody often stayed up for another two hours to learn Torah and say Tehillim while the rest of us crashed. I have never met anyone like Rabbi Brody. His heart is even bigger than his brain. He is very generous with his knowledge about health and fitness. He goes the distance to help anyone who will listen, in airports and on planes, in taxi-cabs and on the run. As a former competitive basketball player, I think that the Rabbi Brody’s knowledge about exercise and fitness and his coaching method would be useful to college and even professional athletes. So, whatever level you are on, if you’re ready to start feeling like a new person, give him a call. In a few short-weeks you will be glad that you did.

Rabbi Lazer is extremely knowledgeable in fitness, a heart of gold, a great listener, His experience as an Author, IDF solder and a Rabbi definitely completes the package. I was lucky enough to be coached by him in my life, he has transformed my life spiritually and emotionally. He is not just a teacher, he practices what he preaches, whatever he suggests is actually what he does in day in day out, unlike other coaches who tell you what to do but don't do it themselves.
You are lucky to be coached by him. I would recommend him to everyone. Best wishes, Yoeli (Joel Gottehrer)
