My experience training with George is hard to sum by giving five-star rating. George's positivity and attitude towards health and fitness carries over to all aspects of one’s life when you work out with him. George is very knowledgeable about diet and physiology and is constantly switching things up to make the workout more fun. He is continuously motivating, participating in workout and always keeping positive attitude are remarkable and helps to keep you on track, motivated. When working out with George you are more than just a client, you are an athlete and a friend. He always works according to how hard you can push and take it to next level. He has made a significant difference in how I perceive exercise as part of my day to day routine.

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!

Sean is an amazing healer, life coach, therapist, and body talk expert. He was able to bring peace to some old emotional wounds that I hadn’t thought about or even realized were still there. I went to him because I felt “stuck” and was searching for advice on my life purpose. After just two months of sessions, I already felt much healing and therefore more joy than ever in my daily life and am also able to express myself better and see more clearly changes to make to encourage my happiness and growth so that I may pursue my dreams being more in the flow and in the spirit of love.

I’ve been working with Mo for the past month (3 times a week) and it’s been a really great experience. He pushes you enough where you can safely exceed your previous limits. He also has a great attitude about life that’s infectious. My main goal was to lose weight, and I’ve been able to do that under his guidance. I just scheduled for another month and intend to stick with Mo because I’m very pleased with the results I’ve seen thus far. I highly recommend him!

I am a teacher and a mother of two with ADHD. I attended several group classes/coaching sessions with Leslie. I found her to be a warm, caring person who cares deeply about others and is dedicated to helping them improve their lives. She listens carefully to each person's needs and issues, and offers helpful suggestions as well as new ways of looking at your situation. She helped me to gain perspective on my situations and provided a framework to begin working with my ADHD. It is a pleasure to work with Leslie, and I would highly recommend her.

Debi has been my life coach since February 2010. Her work is amazing!! During these five years, she has enabled me to tap deeper and deeper into my natural wisdom. It has been powerful for me to have Debi as a witness to my transformation. She sees my life challenges clearly and provides feedback in a positive and supportive way. She is quick to point out my successes and shares them with me joyously and enthusiastically. Working with Debi is the best personal investment I have ever made. She is a trusted partner in my personal and spiritual growth!

I both learn and enjoy every minute with Eva. She is truly an impeccable listener- in a non-judgemental way. I admire her open approach to coaching- always sprinkled in with a sense of humor. At the end of each session, burdening issues of motherhood are normalized. I once again feel like myself- light and ready to continue navigating the trials of motherhood. Thank you for your work and continued support.

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 greatly enjoyed working with Josh over the last year and I've made good progress thanks to his coaching. Both my technique and my conditioning have improved greatly. Josh is professional, he has extensive knowledge and practical experience, and he's a good motivator. Most importantly, he's thoughtful in his approach. He's able to notice small things that make a big difference. For example, he showed me a simple weight drill I had never seen that helped me improve my form and endurance very quickly. For me, this is what a good coach and trainer is all about about. Overall, it's been a great experience working with Josh.

I've been working with Arya as my life coach for over 5 years now. He has helped me navigate so many different aspects of my life, from completing law school, to ins and outs of relationships (and now marriage), to reconnecting with my own body when I've felt out of touch, and so much more. I consider his insight invaluable to my life, and always appreciate how he guides me to more powerful places of being. He always has new approached to teach me when I'm feeling stagnant and is always learning and growing himself. I'd recommend him to anyone!

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.

I've been working with Serenity in personal training sessions for the last 6 months. She is a FANTASTIC personal trainer. She has a strong passion for coaching and developing her trainees and is extremely professional. Her passion is coupled with natural talents of empathy and individualized perception of others as well as a competitive edge. When I first met Serenity, she took the time to fully understand my goals and desires for training together. She invested in learning about me, my motivations as well as the roadblocks that I had been encountering in meeting my fitness goals. As we’ve continued to work together, she has continuously worked to customize my workouts to push me, constantly keeping my workouts just within reach while also a solid stretch for improvement. Our time together has truly become the highlights of my week. I can’t recommend Serenity enough to others!

I signed up with Coach Tarek Mourad for 8-class sessions titled "My Life Skills" and objective was to improve presentation skills. I got from this class what I expected and even more. He covered areas that can be very helpful when interacting with people at home, at work, and in social gatherings. I learned how to identify your own personality strength and weakness, and how to improve them. what different personality styles exists and how to co-exists among them and respect them and interact with them. What is emotional intelligence and how it can improve your interaction with the people. What are different habits and how to control and eliminate bad habits and acquire good ones. And finally body language that can play a key role when you are giving a presentation in a large crowd. After going through this coaching I believe that I can have better relationship with people around me, I should be able to recognize tension or ease in interaction between two persons and finally use the tips provided in the class to continuously improve my voice and my body language to communicate in an effective way. No doubt that he is a great coach.

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.

    After every coaching call that I had with Wendy, I had a much clearer vision of what I needed to accomplish when it came to organizing certain life aspects - finances, fitness, work organization, etc. Whenever I addressed a problem I had to Wendy, she helped me navigate the source of the problem. Then, she asked me various questions on why I cannot combat the current problems that I had at the moment and I learned that my answers were all excuses. Wendy never once forced me to change my habits, but she continued to asked me questions that prompted me to find out the reason why I developed these problems in the first place and how to effectively find solutions to these problems. After 5-6 coaching calls, I felt that I had greatly improved almost every life aspect I was struggling with. I greatly appreciate Wendy's helpfulness, kindness, and patience with me on each call that we had. Thank you so much Wendy for helping me achieve a more organized and improved lifestyle!

    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.
