When I think about what I want to say about Al, the first word that comes to mind is 'energy.' I believe he has the ability to share his positive energy with the people around him.


He uses his experience to teach, encourage, and inspire. He motivates me to be the best person I can be. In particular, he told me, "I am preparing you to be a leader." Those words truly inspired me and helped build my self-confidence little by little.


I have known Alfonso for about 40 years and have the privilege of having him as a friend, meditation guide, and teacher. Under his guidance, I have been dealing with many of my health issues and continue to do so. He is a patient and compassionate teacher. He handles my health issues at my own pace, never rushes me, and always reminds me to check in with my body, as it knows what it needs better than I think it does. Under his guidance, I have experienced improvements in the mobility of my hands (I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, which is a very painful and deforming type of arthritis). I also suffer from scoliosis (a lateral curvature of the spine), and with guided meditation and exercise, we are working on realigning my spine. I have experienced improvements in both areas.


The therapist, Al Portillo, is currently working with the team. Al emphasizes trust and helps the team visualize the players they would like to become in their minds. The team is still working on developing their mental resilience, along with strength and endurance training, and a healthy diet. Every week, the team must submit a written report on what was discussed the previous week. These sessions have been very beneficial for the team's development. I am very pleased with the work Al has done with the team.


He loves helping people, and it shows in the way he interacts with them. It's evident that he wants to share only good things.


Al Portillo is a man capable of many things. I believe that behind all his experiences in various business fields, degrees, and achievements, he is truly a kind man who shows compassion to every person he meets. With a fair, equitable, and responsible mindset, he is a person who knows his capabilities and shares his knowledge with others, providing opportunities for them to grow as well.
