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.

I have only been two times. The first session I was unsure but after the second I can honestly say I give him 5 stars. I am not "better" or have it all figured out but I think the Life coach approach is the way to go for me. Plus, his questions are thought provoking and pertinent to who I am. I am hopeful I will begin to see life thru a new lense.

John taught me how to live a healthy lifestyle, workout, and most importantly how to keep weight off! When I met John I weighed 210 pounds and was not happy with how I looked. I'm now down to 155 and feel great. I owe John for most of my success. Listen to what John has to say and have an open mind and you will be losing pounds in no time!

I have been working with build body lab for about 6 months now and love the experience. Within the first 2 months of training with Isaac, I lost 20lbs of extra fat! I highly recommend Buildbodylab to anyone who is trying to make a healthy lifestyle change, win a fitness bet, get shredded, or any kind of physical improvement goal really.

When I started training with Michelle, I was in poor shape. I could not run a minute without feeling like I was dying. Now, I can run thirty minutes and feel pretty energized after the run. I am physically stronger and in better shape than I have been in decades. Michelle is super supportive and patient. I believe she is an excellent trainer for people who want to get in better shape and stay motivated to make staying active a part of your lifestyle.

Kendahl has been training me for about 3 months now. He is extremely dedicated and passionate about what he does and it shows when he interacts with myself and others. He prepares you with a grocery list, a detailed monthly workout calendar customized to help you achieve your goal and always makes himself available if there are any questions or concerns you have about eating or other things related to adapting to a healthy lifestyle. One thing that has stood out to me about Kendahl is that he is innovative and can create an efficient exercise out of any machine or exercise tools that are present. It has not been the easiest change for me and lord knows I have not been the best client but Kendahl has been very patient with me and has pushed me for the better and in the right direction. He is extremely encouraging, kind, and makes it a priority to provide a positive workout culture all while instilling discipline physically and mentally. I highly recommend Kendahl to anyone looking to get results make a healthy positive change! He is truly the best!

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.

    Max is fantastic! He's exactly what I need in a coach. He created a custom work out plan that's tailored to my crazy work schedule and given me tools to eat healthy even when I'm traveling. Following his plan has helped me lose weight and gain muscle. I'm stronger now than I've ever been. My favorite thing about Max is that he coaches people at various levels of fitness, which means he has the knowledge and experience to help me achieve whatever goals I set for myself. I highly recommend him!

    Lynell and I have worked together for the past six months (and counting)! I have worked with other health coaches before and even professionally edited a holistic health coach book, but these coaches' knowledge pales in comparison to Lynell's knowledge and expertise. Lynell is very supportive and is very knowledgeable about health and fitness. However, she goes beyond just your average health coach that's out there. Her coaching comes from a psychological approach, including whole body wellness and stress management techniques, and the word "diet" (as in the starve yourself dieting to lose weight) does not exist when she works with you. She helps you create healthy habits from a goal-setting perspective that are both realistic and produce amazing results. As a result of working with Lynell, not only have I lost almost 20 pounds but I have more energy and feel more focused and organized in my life, especially with my career path. I'm a freelance copywriter who works from home and Lynell has really helped me to really hone into my career goals as well as my personal health and wellness goals. Lynell also has a background working with diabetic clients and is very knowledgeable about diabetes and how to be heart-healthy. She is dedicated to helping her clients prevent heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. She has helped me focus on my sodium intake. In the past, I had issues with on-off again high blood pressure and with Lynell's help and assistance, I've been able to keep my numbers at a healthy range. There is a lot of confusion out there about nutrition and healthy eating and there is a LOT of misinformation on the internet. Lynell's approach is realistic and works in "real life." She doesn't set you up to fail and she's there every step of the way with you. Lynell concentrates on the basics of nutrition so you don't feel overwhelmed. She walks you step-by-step through the goal-setting process and encourages and supports you during each coaching session which gives me confidence and feels like I'm not alone in my health and wellness journey. I'm 44 years old and am dealing with perimenopausal symptoms. Lynell is very empathetic and has shared invaluable tips and information about the types of foods and nutrition I should focus on for healthy balanced hormones. As a woman, I feel like she really "gets" what I'm going through and really listens. I highly recommend working with Lynell. If you feel like you are spinning out of control and don't know how to get your health back on track or want to exercise but don't know where to start, definitely hire Lynell for her coaching sessions. She's an amazing coach and is a very positive and uplifting person who always see the bright side in every situation!

        I have been working with Sarah to really push myself in ways I wasn’t able to on my own. The result so far has been incredible! I was hesitant to try coaching at first, but it has been so refreshing and helpful to get passed road blocks I didn't even know existed! I cannot say enough good things about her.

            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.
