I was going through a very tough transition both personally and professionally last year. Cindy has helped me tremendously in both overcoming it and moving forward into a much healthier and more suited environment for me. I could not have asked for a better support and guidance. I was truly blessed to have her and her resources by my side :)

Hi my name is Kristen I went to Zach for personal training. I was with him for a year and don't regret a minute of it. Zach is a very knowledgeable trainer and is so dedicated to his work. I trained with him on the avg of two to three days a week while working out at home the other days. He whipped me into shape along with nutrition guidance. He was very professional and not only did he get me in shape, I also learned so much from him to take away and do on my own. If I were ever to walk into a gym again, I would know how to lift the proper way and not be intimidated to do it next to all the men haha!! I would highly recommend Zeus Fitness and Performance and will probably go back to get another butt kicking. Zach was awesome!!

I would suggest getting the book "Get Clients Now! by C.J Hayden" and reading the first 6 chapters. If after reading them you still feel you need help and guidance, Loretta is an excellent choice.

    Without getting into too much detail, I was going through difficult times with school due to a number of personal factors. I was hesitant about seeing someone for guidance in general, but some friends of mine recommended Jamil. As soon as I met him, I was amazed at how friendly and easy going he was. His personality helped make me feel relaxed and comfortable to share what I was going through. He gave me some advice for how to look at my problems in perspective and worked with me on a plan for turning things around. He even keept in touch to check on how I'm doing. Great guy overall who really knows his stuff and shows a lot of passion for helping others. I would recommend trying Jamil out if you need some guidance with any difficulties you may have.

    I enlisted the help of Jivana Kennedy about 3 years ago. At the time, I was sorting out the ending of a long marriage and some issues related to my health and wellness. Jivana was caring, professional, knowledgeable, and dependable to work with on all occasions. Jivana is deeply familiar in the areas of holistic healing and alternative therapies and her guidance has been immensely helpful. I have enlisted the help of Jivana over the past three years, and each time I found her to be a wise and kind support over some of life’s thorniest issues. It’s for that reason that I am pleased to be able to give Jivana Kennedy a five star review. Gary Wc

    James Price has been my personal trainer since Sept. 2014. In that time I have made tremendous leaps and bounds in my personal health and fitness. He has provided me with excellent physical training, expertise, and nutritional guidance. What makes James stand out from other trainers is that he has the right balance between offering support and motivation to make you better. I am physically stronger, healthier, and in better shape thanks to James. If you are looking for a great personal trainer look no further. Give James Price a chance. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

    I can't even begin to express how much Teresa helped guide, coach and encourage me over the last few months. She not only helped me get over fears and obstacles, her coaching and guidance led me to discover my true passion and start a new business. This is by far, one of the best investments I have ever made.

    It is amazing to connect with someone that is working and enjoying their passion/mission in life. When I first came to Carmen, I was in dire need of being relieved from the stress of not doing what I'm passionate about, but funny thing is I don't know what I'm passionate about, so how can I do it, right?! In my initial conversation, I knew connecting with Carmen was exactly what I needed at this moment in my life. Carmen helped ease my stress by helping me to discover why I'm unhappy, stressed, and to understand my ego. She's understanding, patient, and meant to do this work. Her life and career coaching has brought me far in this short time. This experience has been a blessing and without a doubt a necessary journey. Thanks Carmen!

    THE SCORE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. In March of 2015 my son took his first SAT in the spring semester of his Junior year in High School. He has always had an excellent command of English and had not felt the need to seek additional tutoring in preparation. This first shot at the SAT gave him a Writing score of 690 in the Reading portion (within the 95th percentile) and 660 in the Writing portion (within the 92nd percentile). Although we were pleased with his scores, his college counselor however, had already gotten to know him well by this point and thought that with a little guidance and knowledge of testing techniques there could be room for improvement. She recommended we contact Ms. Flowers who immediately started working with him in anticipation of the next SAT test date just a few months away the following June. They worked diligently meeting about once per week until test day. Test day came along and my son took the test and felt very confident upon completion. The results proved the decision and extra effort to tutor with Ms. Flowers was well worth it. The June test score for Reading jumped 90 points to 780 (scoring in the 99th percentile) and the Writing score jumped 50 points to 710 (scoring in the 96th percentile). This was no coincidence, it was due to Ms. Flowers tutoring. Of note, my son is gifted but must also deal with ADD. She knew exactly how to work with him to get the job done. Thank you Ms. Flowers!

    I've had the pleasure to know and work with Edward Aldama for several years. In both personal and professional situations Edward has been a true inspiration and a valued source of new creative ideas. Walter Chrysler wrote " the real secret of success is enthusiasm". Edward's secret of success is challenging the best in everyone he touches through enlightenment, entitlement and a systematic path to enrichment. I will continue to call on Mr. Aldama as I expand in my career.

I will be sure to consult her in the future and would absolutely recommend her life coaching to a friend.

    Kathy embodies her mission. She indeed has a healing heart in everything she does. ❤️ I have benefited tremendously from all of the services she offers through Healing Hearts. From the yoga and Pilates classes to the Sedona getaway retreats and the one-on-one coaching. With the guidance and support of Kathy I have been able to complete a phd against many odds - e.g. Back injury, divorce, and the loss of loved ones. The services from Kathy (Healing Hearts) have been instrumental on this journey - and I honestly don't think I would have made it without her. - In her yoga and Pilates classes she tailors exercises to accommodate her students' special needs and injuries, so that we can grow stronger and more flexible in a responsible fashion. Her style is fun, loving, and also soothing for the soul and mind. It helped me manage the stress related to the PhD and I walked out of each class happier and lighter. - Kathy's retreats are like an oasis on the journey of life. I find them to be full of nourishing activities and food for both body, soul, and thought. These shared experiences have also lead to many lasting friendships which I treasure. - Through the coaching sessions Kathy has enabled me to reframe and deal with many of my inner and outer obstacles in life. This has enabled a personal and spiritual growth which serves me well both professionally as well as in my relationship to myself and others. Kathy helps you challenge the status quo of your life through compassionate listening, novel exercises, and by offering enlightened perspectives which she has cultivated over many years of studies and continuous practice. Kathy is definitely on my "board of directors" for life. With gratitude and love, Namaeste, Camilla Jensen, PhD

      I started seeing Elsa about a year ago after a friend recommended her services for my on and off again depression that no other form of therapy had really helped. It seemed like there was some sort of checklist and these people really weren't understanding how I was feeling. My first session with her was the most revolutionary experience I've ever had. I had been using recreational drugs to a point where I was getting concerned of forming a seriously harmful addiction, when she put me under for the first time I woke up and CLEARLY knew what I needed to do, clean up my act. I've never felt so comfortable telling her how I'm doing in any respect. She has helped me process my drug use, family issues, night terrors, self esteem issues, guilt for my terribly misguided father who has caused me a great deal of pain. What Elsa has done for me is more than any of my friend or family can do, not because they won't but because they just don't have the skills and an open mindset that allows her to give you the best guidance possible. I could never thank her for what she's done for me. I consider her a close friend now. Thank you Elsa and continue to be this vibrant, shining light in not only my life but all of the people you work with.

        I had (and continue to have) a great experience with Tanya. She continues to guide and support me through some difficult professional and vocational decisions. She helped me articulate and come to a better self-understanding of my gifts and passions. She really invested her soul and full energy into our developmental relationship. I highly recommend her. I wish I had utilized her earlier in my career. - George del Hierro

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        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.

        What is a career coach?

        If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

        • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
        • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
        • Defining your career goals
        • Creating a plan for job searching
        • Improving networking strategies and skills
        • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
        • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
        • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

        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.   

        Why is career counseling important?

        Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

        • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
        • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
        • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
        • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
        • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
        • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
        • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

        How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

        A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
