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 can't say enough good things about Coralie. She came to my house when I was in so much discomfort with my neck and really helped get me on the road to recovery. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about helping me get better. She kept in touch with me and continued to give me advice and support. I feel blessed she came in to my life and will continue to see her for my massage therapy . I will highly recommend her to all my friends.

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.

I've been training with Josh for over a year and a half now. I first decided to train in mixed martial arts just as a new workout routine, and because I enjoyed the sport as a fan. I was essentially starting from scratch, and because of that I felt that getting personal training would be more effective than taking large group classes so that I would get the fundamentals down from the start. Josh was very patient in teaching me all the basics. He's a great teacher, and is able to break down some very complex techniques into simple instructions that can be applied. He also understands and focuses on what his students goals are and gears the training accordingly, so that you're always learning something specifically catered to helping you achieve them. Ive come a long way since I first started working with Josh and because I have gotten results faster than I originally expected, I now have a different set of goals from when I began. I have no doubt his teaching can help me get there. Josh definitely puts you through a tough workout, but its a lot of fun and I really look forward to it each week. He has accomplished a lot in this sport, so he can fit whatever experience level you are at. I consider him not just a coach but a friend and fully endorse anyone looking for a trainer to check him out.

I am so grateful to have Nicole as a mentor and a guiding light. Her coaching style blends her hands-on professional experience with sincerity. Nicole understands people and dynamics quickly and does so through listening. She practices active listening. You will do most of the talking, and she will bring it all together, usually by asking a question. The ah-ha moment! She doesn't dwell on weaknesses, but focuses on strengths. On a professional level, she has helped me navigate through the ranks and carve out a role that fit my skillsets and lifestyle. I've also looked to her for advice when presented with new career opportunities. Based on my experience, I cannot recommend Nicole's services enough. Every mid-level professional deserves an advocate like Nicole.

I highly recommend Dr Beth Milwid as a career coach. An experienced senior finance executive in the midst of a career transition, I approached Beth after being referred to her by well regarded leadership coaches in the Bay Area. I have appreciated Beth’s knowledge and experience not only of the job-search process, but also with the broader “career coaching” space. Beth provides an impactful blend of strategy and tactics. She applies real world experience and a talent for listening to guide a process that is specific to one’s goals while providing context from best-in-class resources. Beth provides exercises, articles, and online resources to help guide the process from self-assessment to executing networking and search strategies. She is quick to jump into the detail to support opportunities as they arise - rapidly turning around resume, cover-letter, and other communication edits. If you are in the midst of a job search or interested in more fundamental career coaching, I urge you to contact Beth to see what she can do for you.

Laura was my mentor during my time with New Ventures West as I was going through their Life Coaching Program. She was able to provide me with insights into my practices that helped me move forward. She asked me powerful questions when I was "stuck". Her presence in conversation was attuned to my whole self - mind, body and heart. I have been inspired.

        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.

        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.   

        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.
