I met with Markshane earlier in May and through the preliminary tests that he did on me I was in pretty bad shape. You can tell that he genuinely wants you to get better with the way that he talks about health. He told me "I'm in this business with you to get out of business with you" which totally makes sense bc his gym is targeted for YOU so that you can improve your health. My trainer is Jeremy and he's awesome. I've definitely felt a massive increase in strength. What I like about him is that he is always taking notes about what weight I'm improving to and what I'm struggling with so we can make it stronger. He continuously pushes me and encourages me to keep going and he knows a lot about what he does! Shape Up Studio has been a great choice to inprove my health and lifestyle. Thanks, guys!

Dustin is an amazingly professional trainer that is highly responsive to the needs of his clients and we'll build a custom Training rooting for you based on your specific goals and resources. I met with him this evening at the park and she had me doing several of his high intensity interval routines that's just it my abilities and made it possible for him 2 gauge my aptitudes at this time. The workouts were challenging but not overwhelming and Dustin was very responsive to my needs whenever I was unable complete the set or if I was in pain he was able to switch out the routines to make it more comfortable and always kept a very positive motivational attitude. I'm looking forward to continuing working with him swords my health and athletic goals! To be thorough I am a 37 year old male that is trying to lose 35-45 pounds in body fat and gain a muscular toned physique so we'll see where we can go from here!

Lauren Allen is a phenomenal fitness coach and such an inspiration to all men and women. I have attended her Saturday bootcamps and not only did I leave with an energetic workout outdoors, but I left feeling wonderful about myself. I loved that she catered her boot camp to meet all levels of athleticism so that we all were able to receive an awesome butt kicking work out at our own pace. I would definitely recommend Lauren Allen!!

I was looking for a yoga instructor to introduce me to the practice and to help me manage the soreness and work related stress held within my body. Allison has exceeded my expectations with her expertise and patience in teaching me poses which specifically address my needs. After just a few sessions, I have felt much more limber and relaxed overall, and I look forward to incorporateing the practice into my daily routine. I highly recommend Allison as a personal yoga coach for all levels of experience.

I engaged with Diane at the most pivotal time in my life, when I had some critical decisions to make about what I was going to do next and needed to get back in touch with the things that were meaningful and effective for me at a deep level. There is no denying that we were successful in getting to a path forward, as I've come out of the coaching exercise more sure of myself, confident, resilient and grounded then I've felt in a long time. Diane overflows with positive energy and a wealth of knowledge. Everything that we did was guided by my own thoughts and reactions, so in a sense the accomplishment was achieved through a conversation with myself that she facilitated, making the results permanent and self reinforcing. I can't thank her enough for helping turn things around for me. The changes are profound and I would recommend that she can achieve the same for anyone in a similar need.

I started working with Justin 8 months ago and he has guided a complete transformation in my overall health, body composition, and how I think about nutrition in general! Justin is incredibly detail oriented and scientific in his approach to nutritional and physical training. Based on Justin’s direction I’ve taken precise measurements via Dexa scans, bloodwork, and ketone measurement. Using these techniques the results can’t be faked! I’ve lost 11lbs of fat, gained 8lbs of muscle, significantly improved my bloodwork (all around but specifically cholesterol) while gaining strength and endurance and not getting board or injured. Whether Justin is measuring heartrate/VO2 max/ketones, pushing you past your goal, or giving worldly advice on the human psyche I couldn’t recommend him more!

"When I met Corry I was struggling due to recent negative, life changing events in my life. I was alive but not really living. All of my relationships were suffering. I was completely out of balance in my mind and in my body. In just three coaching sessions, Corry helped my build my confidence back up and take charge of my life. She is nurturing, caring, and firm. She has a way about her that makes you feel safe and comfortable instantly, and I found myself able to open up to her and tell her things that I hadn't told anyone else. Thanks to Corry, I feel empowered and my future has never looked so BRIGHT!" Jenn C. Carlsbad, CA

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.

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.  

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.

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.
