We are so truly blessed to have had the privilege to meet Mr. Allen and his very unique style for our special day. He worked with us in every request we had, and the last minute idea to add my daughter into our loving and very special ceremony. The loving words he spoke, and his friendly style, we gained a new friend. I will always be grateful to him for making our day perfect. So if your in search for someone to marry you. Please send Allen a message, he is very prompt, has great advice and will work hard to make your moment very unique and personal! The day we got married, the weather was very "iffy" we planned a outdoor ceremony. Allen called me the night before and offered assistance with a plan B if it were to rain the time we chose. Which was very comforting. ~Wendi Hobbs, April 22,2016 Thank you again Allen!

I was looking for a change in my life for health reasons and to keep my self confidence. I have lived my life in the "fast lane" for so long, I never took time for "me". Shaping U Fitness has taught me to eat right and take time for "me". Now I feel better and now try to balance my life so I can live a quality life for me and my family. Thank you Brad for all you do in reaching out and helping folks like me. I enjoy working out now and your staff is top notch.

She has helped me to see unhealthy patterns that I have developed and we're working towards breaking those ties. I highly recommend her if you have a hard time opening up, she's a very comforting personality.

Started working out with BJ about 6 months ago. I’m a woman in her late 50’s and had never worked with a personal trainer. But I can tell you that BJ is not only a great motivator, he keeps the routines new, challenging and also is very respectful. Since working with BJ I have lost 40lbs, my blood counts have all dropped into the normal range, I have developed muscles I didn't know I could, dropped 3 dress sizes, sleep better, feel better, and look forward to doing my workouts with BJ.

My son is super excited about having a personal trainer who gave him a meal plan and educates him on how the two go hand-in-hand. He tells his friends he has a "workout buddy" who's awesome. I see him getting his confidence back. Thank you Adam! Drusilla & Matthew

As a former personal trainer of 10yrs I knew the benefits guidance and accountability of a good personal trainer. I joined a gym and didn't single pound for 6 months when Mike told me I had to actually go I then realized I needed that personal accountability myself. After only a couple of months with Mike coaching me back into the shape I want. I haven't felt this great in years and no longer just pull up to the gym parking lot to use the free WiFi to check in on my Facebook I am working towards my goals. Brett G.

I have had the great opportunity to work with Stacy as a personal training client. She formulated a training plan that focused on my target areas, was at my fitness level, and stayed interesting. Throughout the process she became more than just a trainer at a gym, she became a friend and life coach. Stacy is a pleasure to work with and keeps you motivated to live a healthy lifestyle.

Lucy Hughes has been instrumental in helping me find answers to pivotal issues for which I was having difficulty making a decision. She has coached me through some career choices, as well as, personal life situations. Career... Somehow, Lucy Hughes was able to help me peel back the layers of deceptions and distractions and get real. She helped me to discover and define what exactly my career goals are, and also my deeper motivation behind those goals. Through partnering and learning with Lucy Hughes, I now have a new perspective that keeps me focused, professionally. Relationships.. On a personal level, Lucy Hughes has coached me through some of my own personal insecurities that were harmful to my marriage. She has also helped me through a painful situation with a very close family member. In both of these circumstances, Lucy Hughes helped me to gain understanding of my own thoughts and emotions and provide some insight that helped me through. Her nonjudgmental, caring demeanor made the process not only insightful, but also pleasant. This is a very skilled coach full of wisdom and grace. I know I can trust her to help guide me through any life event or personal circumstance. Casey Bush, Physician Assistant

After searching for self help books, I ran across one titled 'My Daily Miracles by Law of Attraction.' Because I loved what I read, I googled the author and found that he was life coach and decided to contact him. Labarron Kennedy aka "Coach K", is a special individual put on this planet to do what he's doing...teach! He is a great teacher and guider. I LOVED how he allowed me to talk to him as he listened to my issues and concerns. He's not someone whose only method is to TELL you what to do. Instead, he hears you out and brings certain things to light and you have no choice but to recognize the answers. "Coach K" has implemented daily exercises for me to complete as well. This is a great learning tool and a great way for me to grow, learn and of course. Learn about me and what I need in order to fulfill my purpose on my daily walk. His personality causes you to gravitate to him and becoming comfortable with him is easy.This aided in trusting him wholeheartedly with my growth. His dynamic, sometimes unconventional teachings showed me that it all begins with my very own thoughts.Your life patterns itself after your thoughts. After realizing this, it actually turned out to be the root of most of my issues/concerns. He also taught me that the foundation was to first have to believe in myself. It was great! He is a fountain of knowledge and I wouldn't change one single thing! Thanks Coach K! You are truly SUPERFANTASTIC!

I began with the desire to loss weight, strengthen my leg muscles and knees to regain endurance. However, my experience with joining INHOC Fitness, has been more than rewarding. Before, I joined the leg and knee pain, along with discomfort and low endurance was physically and mentally debilitating! As a result of working out 3 days a week consistently and changing my carb intake, I have not only lost weight, I've taken a new least on life. My new lifestyle has afforded me the ability to do things as a senior I never thought possible. My next challenge is preparing for a 5K walk/run. Thank you Mr Darin Smith, aka(Coach), for bringing INHOC Fitness, to our community!

After hearing Carolyn speak at an event, I wondered what a "sixty something" grandmother might gain from a personal Life Coach. The consultation with Carolyn convinced me there was much to learn about relationships with my family, friends, and business associates. Learning more about myself was key to learning about others. The process, including a lot of study and self-searching, has radically changed my way of thinking, the desire to achieve in my business and in all other areas of my life. Thank you Carolyn, for your gentle and understanding way of helping me to alter my "perception" of life and see the real possibilities ahead for me. Catherine H.

I came in pretty nervous about the whole experience but knowing I had to make a change. My trainer (Joshua) met me where I was and made me feel comfortable. He helped me build confidence and self-efficacy over time with the right balance of accountability, challenge, and encouragement. I stuck with it and now it’s my favorite hobby. I’ve lost weight, greatly improved in strength, & feel tremendously better. It has given me courage to grow in other areas of my life as well.

    The personal coaching I received was by far the best part of my experience. Being new to working out Justin Runyan really helped keep me motivated. His program was easy to follow and progressed me along at a comfortable pace (I wanted slower, but he pushed me!) and I'm down 23 lbs to date!! Thank you!!!

    As a health coach, I am able to work with my clients one on one to improve their health beyond nutrition. We look at their life as a whole to improve their health. Along with diet and nutrition changes, the client may need a way to relieve stress from a hectic work style, to improve relationships, increase their energy, etc. Each client is different, so each program is built around the individual's need to improve his health and overall wellness. As a health coach, I am your motivator and main support in your transformation!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a health coach?

    A health coach is a service provider you can hire to help you realize your wellness goals. You can hire a health and wellness coach to guide you through life changes, keep you focused on weight loss or fitness goals, help boost your mental health, and more. Many health coaches work with their clients for set periods of time as the client moves toward a measurable goal. Wellness coaches come from varying backgrounds, and may have different areas of focus depending on their education and training. Research potential coaches by reading their reviews, researching their academic and personal backgrounds, and learning about any certifications they have earned from coaching institutes. Often, health and wellness coaches sell coaching packages ranging from three to six months or longer, depending on the client’s needs. The average national cost for an individual health coach session ranges from $60 to $90, although prices may range as low as $30 or up to $130 or more, depending on your location and the coach.

    What is a life coach?

    A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

    Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

    How much does a life coach cost?

    A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

    What is a holistic wellness coach?

    When you want to reach new heights with your health and wellness, consider hiring a holistic wellness coach. Much like a health coach, a holistic wellness coach is focused on your well-being and meets with you in one-on-one sessions to help you identify and reach your targeted goals. A holistic wellness coach will typically have you take all components of your life into account when working to achieve your goals. If your goal is to lose weight, a holistic wellness coach will not only offer recommendations for your diet and exercise, but also discuss your emotional health, your work/life balance, your spiritual side, and each area of your life that affects your ability to follow a nutrition and fitness plan.

    Although they are highly motivational and often can help clients achieve great results, holistic wellness coaches are not professional health care providers or registered dietitians. Different institutes and training centers provide certifications for holistic wellness coaching, so be sure to research your coach and read their reviews to understand more about their techniques and training.  

    Why get a life coach?

    People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.
