Lois is a wonderful tutor. As soon as she heard me talking she knew exactly what was it that I needed to train my English in order to take it to the next level. Highly recommendable to those who have an advanced level of English, because she is really precise and you get to learn a lot of history on the language. It is very enjoyable and it makes sense. If you need ESL, she's the one! She is also a writer, producer and acting coach, therefore she's also super creative and helpful when it comes to having to work out some text.

Gabriel has been a great asset as I've been getting back into shape. He's worked with me to get workouts that take my old injuries into account as well as easing me back into an active lifestyle, always making sure I take all the steps to help avoid injury. Gabriel has also been great in helping me clean-up my diet, and his food plans are easy to follow and have really helped me in my progress. It's been great learning new exercises and paying a lot more attention to how the movements and sequence of exercises work together. His studio is the very definition of being a private client, where you work out one-on-one with him which I find both comfortable and intense. You can go all out, with the music jacked up and no one can see you sweat! He's a great trainer and I have really enjoyed working out with him and will continue until I reach my goals.

I'm currently working with Eric to gain strength and flexibility (and improve my overall health). He has been great! I've been seeing him twice a week for about a month, and look forward to continuing training with him. A couple of things that I really appreciate about Eric and his training sessions: - He was courteous of my budget from the start and let me know what was realistic to do within my budget - He explains every exercise in detail (proper form, where you should feel muscles working, how a spotter would interact with the client). This is important for me, because being a girl and not growing up in a gym I had no clue where to even begin. So this is laying a good foundation for the long run even beyond our training sessions together. Also, it makes the client feel more comfortable when they know in advance where the spotter will be assisting at all times. - Eric is always on time. Even at 5:30 AM. He has a client before me at 4:30 AM and is there for that too. - He's been very kind and flexible when I have to travel for work and is willing to adjust the days that we meet so that I still get my two sessions a week in. - He is looking out for you in the long run. There are so many times that I feel discouraged because I can't quite complete a set or my form isn't right because I get tired. He is always quick to remind me that those things come in time as I build up strength. And it's true-- each time I can do a few more and do it better than before. He sets realistic goals and knows that things do not come over night and he wants you to realize that too. Overall, I'm really pleased with how things have been going. It's not a fast process for some of us, but since first beginning I have seen that I have improved in strength and that my body is shaping up. He's a great guy and knows what he is doing. I appreciate that he uses a style that incorporates basic weight lifting and body strength exercises, things that I could realistically do at home or a gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thanks Eric!

Adriana D.
Verified review

Let's just say I have some unique challenges that can make virtually every part of my day seem insurmountable at times. I've worked with 3 life coaches and 4 counselors and the work we did was helpful. But fast forward to August 2015 and let me tell you that Fawn Miller Coaching is more than just help. It's a solution! Fawn Miller's method of coaching is thorough yet practical, diverse yet focused, structured yet mailable to fit my unique needs. I'm not only "accomplishing" goals that can make a world of difference in my every day, but I'm also facing deep, longstanding problems that fragmented and stagnated my experience of life. Often with leaps and sometimes a baby step, somehow "I keep on keepin on"!! Occasionally I have setbacks, but with more confidence I'm getting right back in the saddle because I'm feeling support and using tools that really work! Bottom line? "Fawn's got my back!" Fawn possesses not only exceptional professional skills that she continually expands with effective up to date strategies, but radiates a rare deep intelligence! I can't help but surrender to her sincere presence and loads of understanding and compassion! "Intuitive Magic" sums up the alchemy in this transformative process. And daring to dream bigger than before fuels my inspiration. I'm living life with more heart and courage, and that doesn't mean there's never fear or pain. But it's all worth it! To actually "feel" the changes in how I'm experiencing greater movement and growth, empowerment and joy, fulfillment and success! How can you put a price on that? Just do it!

Meghan is a powerhouse - a true professional! She walks her talk by staying fit, healthy and progressive in the best practice methods available. Although I am a certified health and wellness coach, she added depth to what I know. She provided great tasting recipes that were satisfying and easy to prepare. She also was my personal trainer and yoga coach. She pushed me beyond my comfort zone and helped me understand the true strength of my body. If one makes the commitment to stay dedicated to her program, tremendous health and fitness will be the reward - I highly recommend Meghan!

Gil was an incredibly effective and motivating trainer. With his extensive educational background and understanding of balancing the weights, with diet, and cardio - I find training with Gil to already have significant effects not only on my body but also my overall health. I also appreciate the constant communication even when I'm not around and traveling, making sure to keep me on track and keep my diet in line with the overall goals of my training. he's a great guy and couldn't recommend him more to anyone out there that wants to get into great shape, better shape, or really just kickstart a healthier lifestyle.

Kelly is definitely a great coach. She worked with my schedule and online it gave me the flexibility to adjust to what worked for me. She had great ideas on how to get my body to respond and was encouraging when we were met with "roadblocks". She is very knowledgeable and she has such a passion for fitness. It's almost contagious! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an in person or online coach. Can't wait to get back to it! Thanks Kelly!

I will admit at first I was a little nervous about walking into my first session with LaVelle. I was thinking it was a weight loss program designed for men. Looking at the wonderful reviews about LaVelle helped ease my nerves about the program. I knew I needed to do something different because exercising by itself was just not taking the weight off. After being on the program for approx. 20 weeks, I realize the changes I’m making today are long term gains. My transformation has helped me change my mindset on how I view food and what I put into my body. I’m more cautious of the types of food I eat and I’m actually enjoying eating healthier. I feel better both physically and mentally about myself. LaVelle is not just a weight loss manager or coach for men, but for anyone who wants to make a lifestyle change. It’s not easy, but change never is. You’ll be glad you did, because it will stay with you the rest of your life. Justine

Lee is an absolutely fantastic trainer! I am one of those people who starts something and quits pretty quickly. I had a baby and was in the worst shape of my life. I was nervous about getting a personal trainer for fear of being judged, not being able to keep up with the work outs, or the age old fear that nothing would change and I'd be stuck the way I am. Lee changed all that for me. Our first session he was easy on me, but still pushed me to do a much as I could. Then we built from there. He encouraged me to not only work out, but change my eating habits for a healthier lifestyle. He was always respectful and got to know me. He figured out just how far he could push me. As a married woman, I appreciated that he asked about my husband and never made me feel uncomfortable. I began feeling better and more confident in myself and my abilities. The only bad part about Lee is that he can't make the 4 hour commute to Memphis to continue training me! Seriously though, extremely professional guy who is dedicated to getting you to where you want to be and helping you to see that you can go further! I highly recommend him to train you no matter what stage you are at in your fitness.

Aquila is everything I was looking for in a trainer. She is professional, caring and is very knowledgeable. She is more than a personal trainer. She is more like a health coach for my overall health, mind and body. She is very professional and always reliable. I feel that I am in very good hands with her. Plus, I am getting results after 2 weeks working with her.

Thank you, Mira, for our amazing session this afternoon! Going into our call I was super excited, during our call I had a sense of calm take over. It was good having someone to talk to and help me figure stuff out via guidance and conversation. Now, after we have spoken I have my goals and need to get to work! If you’re on the fence about which coach to choose, work with Mira! You’ll leave your first call MOTIVATED + READY to move forward in your life… totally worth the investment! Not to mention she’s super easy to talk to. It was like I was talking to a long time friend.

I lost 95 pounds on this program with these guys! These guys are the real deal! In the past, I tried numerous other programs, personal trainers, and even took weight loss drugs. The moment I started this program I began losing weight. They teach you how to eat healthy eating real foods and most importantly how to keep your results. I was assigned a coach that was there every step of my weight loss journey. Not only did I lose weight, as you can see from my testimonial video (see my video on their profile page), I got rid of my huge belly, my entire body is tight and toned and I can now wear a bikini again. My cellulite is also GONE! Most importantly, these guys are honest and experienced. They have helped thousands of people to lose weight, get toned, change the symmetry of their body and your program is personalized designed just for you. They saved my life and I am forever grateful! Any personal trainer can get someone to lose a few pounds, however, these guys have helped 1000’s of people including doctors and thousands of medical professional to not just lose weight, but to get toned and healthy and how to keep their results long-term? Check out their before and after pictures and videos.

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.
