I started training with Justin 8 months ago with the soul aim of getting a perfect body. I weighed 190 lbs with a body fat of 26%. Justin delivered a wide range of professional personal training including: cardiovascular training, weight training, nutrition and diet, sports massage, physiotherapy and injury advice, mind strength and well-being. He comes up with unique and interesting exercises which actually work. Within the first 3 months I lost around 10% body fat and 10 lbs of weight. He takes charge of each and every progress you make, in order to give you better results. He also provided a diet regimen suitable for your body. So after 8 months of training, with a break of 2 months, I currently weigh 163 lbs with a body fat of 10%, which is an astonishing result. TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY, IT'S THE ONLY PLACE YOU'VE TO LIVE IN... If you looking to transform your body, or even thinking to stay fit with a good fitness program, I highly recommend Justin at AJB Fitness.

I am a 69 year old male, have been a resident of Kern County, and more specifically Bakersfield for 60+ years. I am a Professional Regional Sales Manager for a very large National Corporation in charge of 1004 West Coast Employees. Additionally, I am a Retired Army Lieutenant, a Veteran of Viet Nam, am in my late 60's, and I have always considered myself fit both physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. My military and professional record this far suggests that is true. Recently, for relatively natural reasons, I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, and Hypertension. Additionally, a strain which occurred perhaps in basic training, got worse during my deployment and years of duck hunting, and most recently on the bench press, I have been diagnosed with a partially torn right shoulder rotator cuff. Also, I have had 2 surgeries to repair a torn ACL which was and is problematic from a fall that I took while on a Mud Run in 2012, and a re-tear in 2014 on the stairs at my 2nd home in the snow in my Tehachapi home. I came to The Health, Fitness, Diet and Wellness Doctor in October of 2016 even though I am an experienced gym member of 40 years, I go to the gym 4 to 5 X per week for nearly that entire time minus a couple of years for the injuries though I stayed active. I thought I was an expert in diet, weights, cardio, form and staying healthy as I am avid weight lifter, do a cardio appropriately, and have had a good diet, or so I thought, for the majority of my life. BOY, WAS I WRONG ABOUT A FEW KEY FACTORS WHICH MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. If you are an 8 cylinder, DOHC, 5.0L engine that is only running on 7 cylinders, you will absolutely lose all your performance, and your engine will fail within 50 miles. That was me. I was falling apart. I had to swallow my pride, and I had to seek help. I HAD TO HAVE THE HEALTH, FITNESS, DIET AND WELLNESS DOCTOR do a free consultation, decided to hire a Nutritionist as I had gained over 45 pounds, a personal trainer to help with fat loss, lean body mass gain, decreasing my body fat % which went from 12% to 27% in the last 5 years, and a LIFECOACH TO DEAL WITH THE DEPRESSION OF IT ALL. They are remarkable, a 10/10 in friendliness, availability, service, EDUCATION AND EXPERTISE, and they do a Beverly Hills-Malibu job with you in all these areas for KERN COUNTY RATES,...LITERALLY HALF OF WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT. I highly recommend The Fit Doc for all needs your insurance, education, time, experience, family; other experts in The Health Industry just can't expertly cover all in once. Thanks Doc! Tom S.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.
