Teen & Young Adult

The moment you meet Carl, the passion and enthusiasm for his work is undeniable. Carl’s coaching methods include practical, interactive and fun approaches to handling real life challenges. He has been a mentor, a coach, a supporter and a friend to our son who continues to grow and develop in his social interactions and personal connections.

We’ve seen a better attitude, improved self-confidence and a heightened social ambition. My husband, myself and especially my son, highly recommend Carl, with his unique style and distinctive positive outlook.

Mindset & Creativity

Carl has created one of the most original and invigorating frameworks for enjoying creative freedom in even the simplest and most mundane parts of everyday life.

It’s a simple and achievable way to engage in courageous living. If it’s true that everything that we do is motivated by either our hopes or our fears, then Carl’s created a way to act on our hopes without being distracted by our fears.

In my career as a filmmaker, there are countless risks that I have to take. I turn to Carl’s methods on a daily basis to help me make those choices with courage and conviction. He’s helped to give me a creative freedom that I might not otherwise have claimed as my artistic right.

Whether they lack motivation or direction, are unsure of their future, or just aren't fully engaged with their life ...

When given the right kind of support, tools, and inspiration, and are allowed to fully explore who they are and what they love - that's when the magic happens.

Untapped Genius for Young Minds is a 1-to-1, live online coaching and learning program designed to get your young person clear, focused, and excited and will provide them everything they could possibly need on their journey of creating their future.

Don't know what their passion is? We'll find it. Know what it is and want to take it further? We'll do just that. And then some - with goal-oriented, tangible results.

The live, one-on-one, interactive coaching sessions will stimulate creativity, critical thinking, and productive play to help fuel their passion, realize their dreams and set them up for life.

Imagine your young one focused, engaged, productive, happy - no matter what challenges they face.

Hi, I'm Carl Contino, Teen & Young Adult Coach and Founder of Untapped Genius. For more than 20 years, I've been helping teens & young adults tap their potential, find their passion, and develop an empowered mindset to create a purposeful, productive and happy life!

When I coach, I bring "the all of me" to the table, including my intense passion for life and diverse background including personal growth, music, and engineering, as well as my love of inventing gadgets, painting, getting out into nature, skiing, and kite surfing!

No matter what their interest or situation, I will be there to inspire and offer practical approaches to working through their challenges and creating a future they love!

Health & Peak Performance

Carl, you need to know what a huge impact you had on my life when we were roommates in music school, I lost 70 lbs (!) in 12 weeks because of what you showed me. And you taught me how to live my life. You told me things that I’ll never forget.

And Jimmy, remember him barging in and doing push-ups in front of the tv? How he put down the booze, lost weight, and got those huge shoulders?!

I often speak of those days you helped us both out, coming up with a nutrition plan, working out together, coaching us on life and how to live it to the max. You did all that – you, my friend. You need to tell your story, guy. The world needs to hear what you have to say, so don’t be so damn modest about it!

Health & Business

I just got off a two hour coaching conversation with Carl Contino, The Groove Coach. To say we had a blast would be an understatement! Besides the amazing energy, flow, and talking that went on between us, I have to say that Carl was masterful at reminding me of my Awesomeness!

When we kicked around the issues of food and weight, he totally got the arena I had just stepped my toe into recently. His one rule is NO RULES and it spoke right to that part of me that rebels when I try to impose rules.

One of the last things I said to Carl, and maybe I even said it twice was, “You’ve got the goods, man!” If you want a coach who will meet you where you are, explore lots of possibilities for shifting energy and thoughts, Carl can get you to where you want to be!
