Stephen is very energetic and very passionate. After a discussion to explain what I (don't) know about health and nutrition, we were on our way! Some personal and business issues have interrupted the regularity of my training, July will be rough, but soon we'll be on a more regular schedule which I know will bring me closer to my goals.I'm excited!!

Evan is great personal trainer! My core is the strongest it's ever been, which has helped me tremendously with my horrible posture.  I initially took him up on his introductory offer and have continued training with him since. He's extremely knowledgeable about fitness  and really cares about your goals. He seamlessly incorporates exercises, nutritional advice, and fun conversation into every workout.  I would definitely recommend him.

Gerard is a great personal trainer! He offers challenging workouts that have pushed me to reach my fitness goals and tailored my workouts to ensure I avoided flaring up any old injuries .I also found great value from Gerard keeping monthly records of BMI ( body mass index) checks , this allowed both of us to see/ track my progress. I also purchase a nutrition plan along with my training sessions this nutrition plan was easy to follow and offer a jump start to meeting my health goals. This nurtion plan was even able to satisfy my sweet tooth, I have fallen in love with protein cookies, thanks to Gerard!

I've been working out with John for over 3 years, and he has transformed my body. He helped me lose about 13 pounds before my wedding. He's more than just a personal trainer - he's a life and health coach as well. I know if I have any questions about health or what I should be eating, I can always send him a note, and he'll respond. Every workout we do is always different. He keeps things interesting, and I always leave feeling good/sore. John is the best!

I've worked with other personal trainers in the past. But my experience with John exceeded my expectations for several reasons. Upon meeting him I felt quickly at ease. He was able to quickly assess my physical ability and pushed me just enough past my comfort level. I had an amazing workout! He was very encouraging and positive towards me. It was very obvious he was extremely knowledgeable not only in training but he also came up with a detailed strategy to help me reach my fat loss goals especially with my nutrition. I feel very confidant in his ability to help me. I also know he will keep me free from injury. He exceeded my expectations. It was the best experience I've had with any personal trainer.

Xavier is the best personal trainer for many reasons - knowledgeable, caring, and lots of experience making people healthier and fit. We had one set of 10 sessions - and then I signed up for the second round! Xavier was able to come up with an approach that worked for me --- especially helpful because I am a "beginner" in terms of formal gym workouts, have tried a couple trainers before, and was skeptical I could find someone who would actually make me feel comfortable and make sure I had a good foundation. Xavier is literally the best - and I always looked forward to seeing him because he also became a friend!

Nicole is the real deal! I've had 4 personal trainers prior to her and although I got results, I hated it every step of the way. NOT WITH NICOLE! I now look forward to my sessions and even though, in the moment, my body may be angry...... I feel accomplished and great when we are done. Nicole is more that a trainer. She provides guidance on food choices and even insight on how to make eating healthy more fun. Thanks to her I now know how to make pasta from zucchini and it is amazing. Nicole is always early for my sessions and we work as a team to communicate and confirm scheduling. I respect her time and she absolutely respects mine. I have dealt with other trainers that lacked respect for my time and I have never had that issue with Nicole. She gives what she gets. If you are dedicated you CAN expect the same. If you are looking for someone to PARTNER with you on your journey, I suggest calling Nicole for a consultation. She WILL NOT do the work for you as it is YOUR journey and you have to own it. She WILL work with you to make it fun and rewarding. I am looking forward to a long and HEALTHY partnership with Nicole!

Jared is a great personal trainer. Whatever your goals are, lose weight, gain muscle, etc., he takes his job seriously and will help you. He is not an intense trainer, he is calm, knowledgeable, and always happy to workout with you. He wants you to achieve your goals and is genuinely happy when you are making progress towards your goals.

James "Intensity" Terry is an outstanding personal trainer, team leader, motivator and educator. James trained me using weights, proper CrossFit exercises, martial arts (under the leadership of my husband, and his Coach, CUNG LE), and his own brand of Intensity training! During my difficult pregnancy James inspired me to do whatever I could and had me back to sumo squats by my second trimester. James leads while jumping in and doing the exercises with you allowing you to go beyond what you have ever done before. Training is about pushing yourself but limiting exposure to injury. James Terry is one of my favorite trainers of all time. My husband, Cung Le, only allowed James to hold mitts for me, when he wasn't able to. That in itself speaks volumes!

I began working with Jacquie last year in August(2013). I was looking to connect with my wife who had recently crossed over. Jacquie helped me to do exactly that. And then some...The healing successes that I have experienced with Jacquie (of Golden Lotus) are immeasurable. The energy that she brings to each and every session has been profound. Recently life has changed for me. Family issues, work related commitments, life, etc. have made it challenging to meet with Jacquie face-to-face, let alone be in the same state. Jacquie offered remote (phone) sessions as a way to keep the continuity of our healing sessions in place. Initially I was reluctant to the idea. I was wrong... We have been meeting (remotely) for about six months now. The sessions always feel as though she is right in the room with me. And the truth is, she is...Our next remote session is in two weeks. Being able to continue our work does not weigh on physical proximity. She is present with the Ascended Masters wherever we are... Respectfully, Richard A. Bata, Ph.D., MFT San Jose, CA

Dr. Corbin is a true pro. When it comes to hiring someone to navigate through the nuisances of lifestyle and health needs for something as important as yours and your family’s nutrition, I would only leave it in the hands of a doctor who values holistic views on health. Dr. Corbin does just that with honest and valuable evaluations. He’s even turned me on to tools to help with other areas I’m trying to work on in my life like stress management.

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.

Nicole is one of the most thoughtful, savvy individuals I have had the privilege of working with. She is masterful at listening, reading between the lines, and suggesting powerful tools that will help advance you toward your goals in new and thoughtful ways. Nicole cares deeply about the individuals she coaches and the rapport you build with her is one-of-a-kind. Nicole has provided me with extensive support as a new manager and helped me successfully navigate a transition to a new company. Her support is immeasurable, puts me at ease, and I highly recommend her to provide a refreshing lens through which to experience your career journey.

I met Willis 5 Days before March 1st and what inspired me to help make my change was when Will said, "Moe, I plan to give you 30 years of your life back" we started 3/1/17 90 Days No Carbs, No Red Meat, No Sugars, No Alcohol, and working out 5 Days a week. After 90 days I was down 67 Pounds and Diabetes Free after living with it for 9 years. Today 7/25/17 I am down 95 Pounds! I couldn't have done this without Willis help and guidance. I've gained years back to my life and also a brother for life!!!!

I felt at ease with Judy from the moment I met her. She always has a smile on her face and really takes the time to get to know you as she works with you. I was really struggling with some personal problems when I started working with Judy and I am truly a different person now a year later. It can often be scary to seek help or go talk to someone, but Judy made the experience a pleasant one and I highly recommend her if you're looking for a life coach. No matter where you're at in life, we are constantly growing and it was very helpful for me.

Not only did I get one of the best workouts of my life with Eden, I also had a good time. I hired her because I wanted a tighter stomach and bigger butt to impress other people, but I continued to workout with her on a regular basis because she made me forget about all that and feel excited and happy about the progress I was making towards becoming stronger and healthier. I didn't feel embarrassed or ashamed about struggling with some exercises because I was out of shape like I would around others, because she has a way of being understanding about your struggles that makes you know you're not in it alone. Knowing I had her in my corner throughout my fight to improve my body gave me the confidence I needed to reach my goals.

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.

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.

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.
