Megan is totally committed to helping you reach your goals. With her coaching, I was able to completely change my body in less than two months. At first, I needed help with my food choices so I kept a journal and I got daily feedback which was so helpful. Now I know what to do and how to maintain as well. If you are looking for one-on-one attention from someone who cares about your success, I recommend that you check out Every BODY’s Fit. Don't put it off until tomorrow. You will be very happy with the results I'm sure!

I first heard Julia give a talk at a function and asked if she could coach me about some things I felt stuck about. Because of her life coaching, my life is transforming because of the Julia's style and technique; she has encouraged me to open up and find out what really are my life's desires. I have learned how to put these goals into personal and professional daily actions--I am excited to see how wonderfully my life is unfolding! I highly recommend Julia's warm and knowledgeable life coaching--it has been a game changer for me.

In June of 2014, I was approaching age 50 and I weighted 230lbs. I was constantly being pressured by three close friends to try crossfit. My friends literally dragged me to CPP one day and I've been doing crossfit WOD's ever since that particular day. In four months, I lost 25 pounds and added 5 pounds of muscle. I'm currently weighting 210lbs. Crossfit has been a life changing experience and I'm extremely grateful to my friends for helping get in shape. There's also a very good group of coaches & members who constantly motivate you to complete the WOD's. Much thanks again to everyone at CPP!

I have had 2 appointments and I can genuinely say it has helped tremendously already. I had tried a life coach in the past and it really was just a waste of time talking and explaining my life....if you want to really change and not just talk and be a victim this is the therapy and the hypnotherapist for you. He is kind and humble and really wants to help people.

I received Pedro, my life coach as a gift from the universe. It could have been any coach when I purchased a package of life coaching sessions on ethical deal. But I found THE coach. A coach that throughout a one year process helped me heal the past and find the courage to live my dreams. I wouldn't be where I am today without Pedro coming into my life and am very grateful to Pedro for his guidance and the benefit he brings to peoples lives. If you are looking for positive change in your life I highly recommend Pedro.

I’ll first start by saying that even if you don’t think you need a personal coach, there’s something very refreshing and liberating to open up to someone who’s main purpose is to help you live a better, more fulfilling life. It’s easy to fall into routines in our day to day schedules; Whether it’s eating/exercise habits, relationship mishaps, work redundancy, or just feeling unmotivated. However, it’s important to recognize and give attention to those parts of your life, no matter how large or small they may be. That’s where Emily comes in. I can’t say enough about how helpful she is, how eager she is to help you reach your goals, her professionalism, her genuine love for her job, and her excitement for the people she’s been able to help along the way. 5 stars. :)

After 6 months of weekly coaching, both of my girls are on track to graduate again, their attitudes and appreciation has gotten sooooo much better and I am centered, in a new career I never had the courage to be in and I love my life!!!!

    I came to Michelle needed some clarity around my academic life. I felt stuck in an unpleasant situation and I wasn’t sure what to do about getting myself out of that messy situation. I felt anxious and confused for days and finally I took my first step on contacting Michelle. She really took her time to listen to my problems and issues I had and She helped me identified my personal goals within that whole chaos. She reminded me of what I have been wanted to do and shifted my tunnel vision to look at different possibilities. Given that life is so complicated on so many levels, Michelle is definitively a great partner to have on this life journey. Michelle is very warm and caring. She’s also very supportive of all my emotions and I felt that I could trust her walking side by side with me on getting me back on track and heading to the direction where I intended to be. Choosing a good life coach can be really intimidating experience, but I am glad that I have found Michelle. She’s truly an inspiration to me and not to mention her professionalism as a life coach. I only have many good things to say about the service she had provided to me.

      Jimmy Lyu did a fantastic job of assisting me in the area of health and fitness. Especially with my poor eating habits. With his guidance, I was able to shift limiting beliefs and unserving behaviors into positive ones, which led me to donate 20lbs and 4 inches off my waist! And, most importantly, to be able to continue with it for the rest of my life. Thank you Jimmy!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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

      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.

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

      What is a career counselor?

      If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

      Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
