I started working out with OJ towards the beginning of January- I had lead a sedentary lifestyle for a long time and felt kinda lost on where to begin. So far I've lost 14lbs, feel stronger, and feel more confident and capable while working out. I feel like he is a great choice for anyone started from a place of low fitness or obesity. PROS -it's private. I always felt very self-conscious working out in the big commercial gyms with tons of people around. There have never been more than 2 other clients (of his partner) during my sessions and often there is no one else. I can focus 100% on form and effort rather than getting caught up in how ridiculous, red-faced etc I must look -attention & assistance even outside of sessions. He's always quick to reply to texts whether its scheduling, nutritional questions, or asking for a routine to do. He's also been very accommodating when I've had to cancel or reschedule. -Limits! I feel he is so good in this department. I always leave a session feeling like I've been pushed to the very edge of my limits but not past- the only 2 times I went to far was due to stuff on my end that I hadn't mentioned (sick/hadn't eaten). He doesn't let me quit when I have to pause but can keeping going overall and he'll call me on it when he knows I can push harder, go faster etc, but he'll adjust the exercise if he sees I'm truly approaching the edge of my capabilities. And he's never misjudged which is which so far. Similarly, I can't get away with slacking on form due to fatigue or inattention but I'm not pushed to have form that I'm just not capable of yet (ex. pushups) This has probably been the biggest thing that keeps me coming back-I've had trainers who wanted more than I'm physically capable of, or pushed me to the point of failure which is very discouraging. -Each session is different and varied- I don't get bored. Also if I ask for a particular exercise he's always been willing to add it to the next session which is nice. -Sincere praise. When he tells me I'm doing a good job I know I actually have! That's way more encouraging than liberal amounts of undeserved praise CONS -The only con/downside is that I was initially looking to focus on lifting- reviewing moves, making sure my form was good, and developing a routine or 2 I could use at my regular gym. But I was also only planning to do a month of training and I'm at 2.5 now, and more than fulfilling my larger goal of general weightloss/fitness! So obviously it's a very minor complaint.

Jake helped me with training advice and nutrition advice when he used to live in the UK, before he moved to LA. His information has really helped me, both in terms of improving health and fitness levels. He is incredibly motivating and inspiring - and he was so keen to help me as an individual and find out what would work best for me. I didn't like 'traditional' exercise, like endless runs or boring gym machines - but Jake could find ways to mix it up, keep it fresh and interesting, and I even managed to have fun along the way! I would definitely recommend Jake as a personal trainer to help you achieve your individual health and fitness goals.

Meghan Aro is an embodiment of beauty and physical strength. She always inspired me to go beyond my limits and with her guidance and training, I became not only physically but also mentally strong.

Meghan is an exceptional trainer who educates her clients about their bodies and provides not just exercise but also nutritional advice. She customizes and centers her workouts around the client. Every day is a new challenge. I strongly recommend Meghan to all my friends and loved ones.

I've been training with Corey just over a month and with his help I'm seeing results I would have never achieved on my own, and in such a short time! Most people gain weight during the holidays, (I typically do) but with Corey's expertise on the right exercises for me and nutritional advice I actually lost 2 sizes! And I actually feel stronger! That says a lot! especially since I have several medical issues including Hasimoto's (hypothyroid). Corey's workouts are challenging and are making a huge difference for me! I couldn't be happier!

Great. She is professional, on time and knows her stuff. I've never really been successful with getting fit because I never understood nutrition but now I get it and I think I'm on my way to my goals.

Michael was not my first personal trainer, it did not take me long to figure out that the others did not take me seriously! If you have a goal in mind, then Michael is the one for you, I went on thumbtack to find a personal trainer, I was desperate, I had to pass a PAT test to secure my job at the State, and i can say WITHOUT Michael I couldn't of passed! I gave him the information to pass with the time limits. This is where i saw what separates the Professional Trainer from the ordinary, Michael knew exactly what to target and he knew approx. how long it would take. I was skeptical at first but he was right-on! If you are willing to work, Michael will be there with you every step of the way, his pricing is reasonable, I had no problem paying because of the results I was seeing!! You might find "Cheaper" but remember "you get what you pay for". I have been with Michael for 7 months, I am doing things I didn't think i could do, he got this 52 year old lady motivated to live a healthier lifestyle. I intend to stay with him, and set new goals for myself. Michael also helped with the Nutritional side, (that was doable)!! I just can't say enough positive thing about my experience. I know this one thing, with my determination and Michael expertise I was able to secure the job at the State!!

My experience with Jacobo has been wonderful! Prior to working with Jacobo I had been working out on my own and was making very little progress. However, in the past several months that I have been working with Jacobo I’ve been able to make a great deal of progress. He was able to develop a training method specific to my needs and has been able to work around my busy schedule. He has developed a nutrition program as well as strength and conditioning program that are design to gain the results that I am looking for. He is very knowledgeable and takes pride in his client’s development and success. I am more than happy with my progress and development, I have recommend Jacobo to my closest friends and family.

I've never enjoyed working out (especially in group settings), but as I get older I realize it is necessary for general wellbeing. Starting up with Jason was a great way of easing back into the swing of things while not have to deal with contracts and commercial gyms. His expertise in choosing appropriate exercises movements, scaling, scheduling, as well as sharing some of his nutrition tips, have made our biweekly sessions something I actually look forward to!

I was introduced to Elayne Good about two years ago. At that time I couldn't boil water. Elaine has painstakingly taught me about food, food combinations, food preparation, and general education on nutrition. I have watched her in the kitchen and marveled at the fact that she is like a chemist. She experiments with foods and flavors and ingredients and can come up with inventive and delicious new foods in a single meal. I adore this woman and could not recommend her highly enough. She is brilliant she is warm she is an incredible chef.

Doing nutritional consultations with Kay Curtis is one of the best things I've ever done. Here's the deal: I was an athlete, and in great shape until I injured my knees in a subway accident. Being unable to run, over the years, I gained weight. There were some other life changes that also contributed to the weight gain. I've always been interested in being healthy and I was taking a lot of vitamins and supplements. I read the ads or heard about the newest supplement on the market that would support some body system or prevent some unhealthy thing from happening. "Prevention" was the buzzword that would hook me. I was "trying" to be healthy. I started seeing Kay Curtis because I had heard other success stories. In my first meeting with her, she had me bring in all of the supplements I'd been taking. She tested me on all them and I found out that I tested poorly on a lot of them. Yikes! She then tested me on the extremely high-quality supplements that she uses from Standard Process. The purpose of testing me on many supplements was to find out what organs needed help (adrenals, heart, etc.) Her philosophy is, in order to lose weight, you need to be healthy. So I got rid of the "bad" supplements and started on the ones Standard Process that Kay recommended. The first thing I noticed was that I was sleeping better. For many years I've had problems getting to sleep. I don't any more. This is a MAJOR win! Secondary to that, I have lost 35 pounds. Those supplements I was taking in an effort to be healthy were actually working against me. There was no logical system to what I was doing, I was just adding things to the mix hoping that they were doing what they were supposed to do. Every sane diet tells you to stop eating bread. I've been addicted to bread my whole life and have tried to stop eating it many times. Bread was one of my favorite foods. I couldn't imagine a meal without it. I actually didn't feel like a meal was complete unless I had at least one piece of bread. Until now. One of Kay's suggestions was to try a low-carb bread. Usually stuff like that is awful but she has found a low-carb bread that actually tastes good and has a good texture (not like other "alternatives" to bread that taste awful and have the texture of crusty old gym socks). The first couple of weeks on the diet Kay recommended were very hard, but I lived through them. She is very helpful, with good suggestions for getting through rough spots and things that a difficult. This is not a deprivation diet. The idea is to have meals be satisfying and healthy. I was never hungry on this diet. Snacks are encouraged - healthy ones. Now, I don't crave sweets all the time. I don't have to have chocolate. (I never thought I'd say that!) That's amazing. I can't believe that when I want a snack, I think about having a cucumber! And I love it. There's a lot of false data, fad diets and junk supplements out there. I'm so glad that I have Kay Curtis to advise me in this complicated and crazy area. I highly recommend Curtis Nutrition - not just to fix what might be ailing you, but to achieve optimal health and wellness. Kay Curtis is there for you, with solutions.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
