I worked with Baron for a month while I was working in San Jose. My goal was to kick start myself back into a healthier lifestyle and hopefully lose some weight. What impressed me about Baron was his smiley approach to each training. He ensured that each training was a challenge but we always had fun. He was able to give a comprehensive work out despite the poor resources in my hotel gym. By the end of our time together I had toned up and built muscle. I did not lose weight (one of the intended goals) but felt that I had been given the kick start that I had asked for to help me step back to a healthier life style (main goal). In hindsight I would have asked Baron for more help nutritionally (though I am not sure if this is a service offered). To wrap up though...I had a lot of fun and always looked forward to my training which I cannot always say about a gym session. It was a great way to spice up my fitness regime and I would certainly recommend Baron to others.

It has been an amazing experience!* I'm a lazy person when it comes to exercising and I told Gerard about it, I need someone to push me, and he's been great!* he's understanding, always ask me if I feel comfortable enough with what we're doing, he pushes me but, also respecting limits. Every work out is awesome. Everyone I leave the studio my knees are melting and you feel that lovely sore all over your body through next day. And he's constantly motivating me, wich feels great. He's been a great coach and help with this new way of life!* definitely deserves 5 stars!*

I've been working out with John for over 3 years, and he has transformed my body. He helped me lose about 13 pounds before my wedding. He's more than just a personal trainer - he's a life and health coach as well. I know if I have any questions about health or what I should be eating, I can always send him a note, and he'll respond. Every workout we do is always different. He keeps things interesting, and I always leave feeling good/sore. John is the best!

Xavier is a great coach. He is genuinely interested in helping you to get things right. He has helped me realize the importance of form posture and right use of core. He is very patient and attentive throughout the session. I would highly recommend him to anybody who is interested in making fitness a matter of lifestyle rather than a means to lose weight once in a while! I have started going more often to the gym on my own, thanks to the way it has become fun working with Xavier.

Dr. Corbin is a true pro. When it comes to hiring someone to navigate through the nuisances of lifestyle and health needs for something as important as yours and your family’s nutrition, I would only leave it in the hands of a doctor who values holistic views on health. Dr. Corbin does just that with honest and valuable evaluations. He’s even turned me on to tools to help with other areas I’m trying to work on in my life like stress management.

I can't say enough about working with Alma. She has been a goddess of information, and encouragement, and has helped me take charge of my health destiny. When I started working with Alma, I was feeling overwhelmed by changes happening in my body. I was suffering from painful arthritis and having difficulty finding balance in my life. I knew my diet was out of control, but needed help getting on a healthier path. Alma systematically took stock of my chemistries and mapped out a plan to optimize my nutrition. She introduced me to ways of controlling my pain without drugs and made numerous resources available. She also introduced me to healthier alternatives for pain relief. Her approach was holistic, collaborative, supportive - and she made it all manageable. She met me precisely where I was and supported me forward. What a gift! I'm delighted my arthritis pain and inflammation have subsided. I continue to find pleasure in the healthy food alternatives Alma introduced me to, and my overall energy is so much better. My blood chemistries continue to improve and those improvements have garnered praise from my physician. I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her. My gratitude and whole-hearted endorsement goes to Alma!

I both learn and enjoy every minute with Eva. She is truly an impeccable listener- in a non-judgemental way. I admire her open approach to coaching- always sprinkled in with a sense of humor. At the end of each session, burdening issues of motherhood are normalized. I once again feel like myself- light and ready to continue navigating the trials of motherhood. Thank you for your work and continued support.

I spoke with Velina on Skype about the challenges I'm dealing with in my life and she was really helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone having difficulties or needing a good coach in their life. She seems to know a lot and has a lot of experience helping people with all kinds of issues. For me, I really felt like she cared deeply for me and understood me like a close friend and yet is very professional. She is warm and kind. I'm so glad I found her. She helped me so much.

When it comes to coaching, I'm looking for someone who is punctual, prepared, attentive, and inspiring in each session. Nick brings all of these characteristics to the table each time, and more! He doesn't just tell his clients what to do, he shows them by living what he's coaching. He's a true health coach!

I've been working with Arya as my life coach for over 5 years now. He has helped me navigate so many different aspects of my life, from completing law school, to ins and outs of relationships (and now marriage), to reconnecting with my own body when I've felt out of touch, and so much more. I consider his insight invaluable to my life, and always appreciate how he guides me to more powerful places of being. He always has new approached to teach me when I'm feeling stagnant and is always learning and growing himself. I'd recommend him to anyone!

I have only good things to say about Lucy. She responded almost immediately to my inquiry and to any questions I had through the process. With my resume, she helped with stylistic changes as well as content. With cover letters she gave me important feedback that I needed. After her help I could confidentially sent out my job applications. It's clear she really cares about the quality of her work and about helping her clients the very best way she can.

Nicole is one of the most thoughtful, savvy individuals I have had the privilege of working with. She is masterful at listening, reading between the lines, and suggesting powerful tools that will help advance you toward your goals in new and thoughtful ways. Nicole cares deeply about the individuals she coaches and the rapport you build with her is one-of-a-kind. Nicole has provided me with extensive support as a new manager and helped me successfully navigate a transition to a new company. Her support is immeasurable, puts me at ease, and I highly recommend her to provide a refreshing lens through which to experience your career journey.

I signed up with Coach Tarek Mourad for 8-class sessions titled "My Life Skills" and objective was to improve presentation skills. I got from this class what I expected and even more. He covered areas that can be very helpful when interacting with people at home, at work, and in social gatherings. I learned how to identify your own personality strength and weakness, and how to improve them. what different personality styles exists and how to co-exists among them and respect them and interact with them. What is emotional intelligence and how it can improve your interaction with the people. What are different habits and how to control and eliminate bad habits and acquire good ones. And finally body language that can play a key role when you are giving a presentation in a large crowd. After going through this coaching I believe that I can have better relationship with people around me, I should be able to recognize tension or ease in interaction between two persons and finally use the tips provided in the class to continuously improve my voice and my body language to communicate in an effective way. No doubt that he is a great coach.

Laura was my mentor during my time with New Ventures West as I was going through their Life Coaching Program. She was able to provide me with insights into my practices that helped me move forward. She asked me powerful questions when I was "stuck". Her presence in conversation was attuned to my whole self - mind, body and heart. I have been inspired.

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 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.

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.
