Megan is the best! An intelligent, inspirational and motivational trainer, Megan pushes and challenges me every session in a fun positive manner. Megan is completely invested in me and each of her clients and our success in our fitness journey. Her “can do” attitude leads me to believe in myself and that I can achieve anything because she believes in every one of us. I have seen such great results in my strength, toning, nutrition habits and overall enjoyment of working out with Megan’s guidance. The EveryBody’s Fit family is a family for life!

Wonderful experience working with Laura. She was willing to work around my time constraints and produced a resume and cover letter that we’re beyond anything I could do myself. I was a little hesitant hiring someone off a website that lives on the other side of the country but I have been very pleased. I definitely recommend Anew Resumé and Career Services.

Amelia has a passion for helping others be the best version of themselves through her Dharma coaching and yoga sessions - while making both experiences fun! During Dharma coaching, I learned how to identify my goals, dig deeper into the goals most important to me, and was held accountable to achieve those goals in a caring fashion. Additionally, life gets super busy - and Amelia is very accommodating for times that work best for me! Amelia's yoga class is amazing. What I like best is the direction / guidance provided to help get into challenging poses. Amelia's positive energy and encouragement challenge me to try new movements, make adjustments, and get deeper into my yoga practice. Thanks Amelia for helping stay on the path to being the best version of me!

I had the opportunity to work for Dr. Frost several years ago and still consider this the most valuable growth experience of my professional career. As my clinical supervisor, Dr. Frost guided me in a positive direction that has ultimately shaped my own successful clinical style. No matter the circumstances or situation, she always remained calm and professional while providing guidance and encouragement to assist with solving whatever problem presented. As a supervisor and mentor, Dr. Frost consistently provided appropriate feedback in a confidential, safe, non-threatening forum that promoted and supported on-going professional development. In addition, she is highly skilled and effective with goal setting, monitoring, and follow up. In short, Dr. Frost is genuinely committed to helping others improve so that they can reach their fullest potential.

I am a 36 year old guy that loves to race motorcycles. At my age, staying in good shape and health is even more important than ever because I am not as young and able to recover from injuries as I was when I was younger. I have feel truly lucky to have access to Nate an Amanda at On Track Wellness for guidance with all of my nutrition, workout, and overall health questions. I have tried many of the nutrition products that they sell and have seen fantastic results from the Pro 20, BioCHarge, and Spark products especially. With the group workouts and Advocare products that Nate had me engaged in this past winter I managed to lose nearly 20 pounds of excess weight an got into about the best shape I have ever been in as an adult. I wasn't "Fat" to begin with, but I definitely was able to trim up a good bit and gain some strength and endurance. This not only led to me being more capable at any athletic event I take part in , but I also feel great and more energized now ! I would emphatically encourage you to give On Track Wellness a call or attend one of the many public events that they engage in and pick their brain about what YOU can do to start improving your own health and well-being today! - Tim Weig

I have working out with Nick for over a year in a HIIT class and yoga. Earlier this year I hurt my knee and with his guidance I am almost pain free. During our yoga sessions he is excellent at explaining the stretches and how they relate to the entire body. He also is very knowledgable in helping with other aches and pains throughout the body. Overall, it is a great experience to go through any of Nick's classes.

If you are reading this…you are in the right place! You have found Donna Bond and your life will never be the same. That is what happened to me. The company I work for hired Donna as a marketing consultant and as the director of marketing, it turned out they also hired me a life coach. It has been the most extraordinary professional year of my life. Donna was so effective and gentle in helping me be a better leader and provided guidance and tools that I now use every day to manage up, down and all around in my job. It has also been an extraordinary personal year. Donna has brought so much light into areas of my life that were stuck, which has resulted in amazing growth for me spiritually. She is helpful in connecting my actions to the results and coaching me on how to make shifts for desired results, which ultimately works for every area of my life!

Amazing. My first session with Deepa was a private. I have suffered from chronic pain in my low back. during one hour of extremely gentle guidance she was able to release a great amount of tension in my low spine. the real joy came the following morning when I rose from bed and realized the pain was gone! If you have pain you really owe it to yourself to see this amazing Yogi.

Rozanne has excellent communication skills. She offered me empathy, reflection and guidance during our weekly sessions. Most of all, she was encouraging and honest. She taught me how to understand myself and those life challenging obstacles that I used to avoid talking about. She keeps it real and helped me become stronger. I would highly recommend Rozanne if you are truly looking for change within yourself.

I reached out to Stephane in a crisis mode after being recommended by a friend. It was a dire situation and Stephane immediately helped me calm down, made me feel at ease. Ever since that first call, it has been an eye opening experience in learning about myself, working through my issues all through the exercises that Stephane has provided. To begin with, he is very personable, genuinely interested in your situation, takes time to really understand it, gets to the bottom of it, and try to sort it from there. He is someone you will instantly feel like trusting. The fact that he has so much experience in dealing with personal and professional cases helps in him understanding your case better than you yourself would. Everyone should have a coach like Stephane regardless of whether one is going through a tough time in life or not. The other great thing about him is that he is not someone who will stop you right at the end of your time limit and say we agreed upon 1 hour and the time is up. He will complete the conversation, ask you if there's anything more you need help with (every single time) and provide that help if necessary even after your session is complete. He is also very responsive when it comes to messages. His short sessions are a life saver when you need to get in touch with him outside of scheduled sessions. The flexibility, the genuineness, the personable experience, the trust factor all make him a wonderful life coach. Be it a relationship issue or a career issue, he has the knowledge and experience to provide you with solutions through exercises that create wonders. I would highly recommend his service. Oh and you don't need to be local to avail his service. I myself am in Chicago and all my sessions have been via phone and he still "gets it" without seeing me in person. A genuine life coach/counselor for all personal and professional issues. Highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of working with Vasi to receive life coaching, spiritual guidance and energy cleansing. What a wonderful experience! Vasi had done an extensive amount of thoughtful work before our session. She carefully guided me and answered by questions during our time together, and was willing to spend a little extra time with me to be sure I had all my session needs met. She is an extraordinary professional. Working with her is a gift!

Randy Powell has assisted me in clarifying my vision, provided me with steps to take to achieve my life's goal. Not only has he helped me figure out what my vision is, he also provides guidance on what is blocking me from moving forward. He has given me encouragement throughout my time working with him. He has also helped me empower myself with my purpose and stand in my own individuality. I reccomned Randy Powell's services to anyone who wants to achieve their dreams and be successful at it. I am truly grateful to have Mr. Powell as my life coach. I could not have made it this far in my journey without his motivation, positive energy and his WANT for me to be as successful as I want to be.

    Randy Moraitis has been my coach through a difficult divorce and subsequent career change. He has the ability to focus in on the areas I most need help with and then works with me to create a realistic plan to effectively move toward and achieve my goals. He listens well and is fully present each time I meet with him, which is highly important to me. As a result of his coaching I was able to navigate my divorce and heal more quickly than I would have without his knowledge and guidance. I continue to work with him to further articulate my career path and how it ties in with my life purpose. Randy is continually furthering his own skills and knowledge through continuing education, which gives me further confidence in his abilities and his heart to bring his best to his clients. Without reservation, I give Randy Moraitis my highest recommendation.

      Since working with Jesse, I have been able to gain clarity on which direction to take my business and relationships in my life. I have found through Jesse's guidance that not only being specific about my desires and ridding of any negative emotions and limitations in my life have had a tremendous impact in my transformation. I have been able to change my course and I am constantly and easily manifesting more clients, more peace and more confidence in creating the business of my dreams as well as being able to do the things that I love like spending time with friends, family, and traveling while making money. These desires came to fruition through making my own decisions on how I want to create and live my life. And so can you. Jesse simply coaches you through your challenges whether it's in sales, business development or accountability. Stop making things hard for yourself. I highly recommend working with Jesse because it has truly been one of the best experiences I've had in continually reaching and setting new goals in my personal and business life.


      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

      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.

      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 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 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.
