I have had trainers before. However, never one like Megan, who cares beyond the workout. Her overall wellness lifestyle is motivating and inspirational. Her classes are filled with support and drive. I like that she is not a pushover or a Drill Sargent. Most of all she knows her stuff. She is always reading and learning, adding more credentials to her resume...and keep classes fresh and different. What she has created is a community of wellness with her blog, videos, and app. I would recommend Megan to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life.

Being an athlete my entire life I have had many coaches, personal trainers, and workout experiences. The workouts OJ from One Body has designed to meet my workout goals have been extremely challenging and a perfect addition to my current workout regiment. I am impressed by his professionalism and consistent communication with me in order to assist me in reaching my goals.

Working with Michelle at Mikel Life Coaching has been a blessing for me! Michelle is warm, open, and easy to talk to! She has given me tools to work with in dealing with my issues! More important, she has taught me to look within myself and be true to who I am and what I need to be happy, and to visualize where and what I want in life!

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!

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!

Jacqueline is an excellent trainer. She is friendly, personable, and cares very much about helping her clients achieve a healthy lifestyle. When looking for a trainer, I wanted to find someone who would care about helping me create a healthy fitness environment and not push me beyond my limits (I was once injured in dance after being pushed too far). Jacqueline understands that it is sometimes important to take a quick break, but also helps you push yourself as much as you can. During my training with her, I successfully toned my arms, increased my core strength, and learned to cook much healthier with her help! I would suggest Jacqueline to anyone trying to create a more heathy, balanced lifestyle for themselves. She is also an absolute joy to work with, and I found myself looking forward to our workouts every week!

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.

Judy’s program is so valuable in every way. I felt it was a very essential program for everyone in whatever stage of life to take a pause and reassess and refresh. Judy ISN the real jewel behind it. She brings an energy and enthusiasm to every call. She helps you see things you may not have seen yourself with each weeks work, and is able to personalize the material to each client. I have referred her to Teo close friendship who also rave about how fundamentally important and life’s changing the programs are. Judy is part coach, part psychologist, part mentor, part everything. She really brings so much insight and experience. I loved this program and her guidance in making it a part of my life.

I have worked with a number of personal trainers and none have proved more effective or knowledgeable than Hannah. My original goal was to cut body fat; however, with her expert diet recommendations and personalized training sessions I was actually able to add lean muscle mass to my frame while cutting the stubborn body fat around my midsection. It's amazing how quickly the results began to show as friends and colleagues noticed and complimented my transformation. Since working with Hannah I have lost about 25 pounds of stubborn body fat that I was unable to lose since college. What I enjoyed most about working with Hannah is that she makes you feel comfortable and really helps you create a healthy lifestyle change - she is not your average one hour gym session trainer. She really gives you the tools and knowledge needed to make those healthy changes even when you are not in the gym. I would highly recommend Hannah for anyone who is searching to transform their body and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Maggie is quick to listen. Slow to speak. And does not judge. She has walked with me through some really tough times. When I wanted to stay stuck and stop, she graciously encouraged me and kept me going. She is wise and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
