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 been training with Justin for about 6 months now and we initially started with 2 important goals - shed some weight and strengthen me for the arduous Inca Trail Hike in Peru, both of which I was able to accomplish thanks to Justin’s hardcore training and nutritional knowledge! He has also helped me correct my form and posture over this time. He also helps curate custom training programs when I’m traveling which has helped me keep up my fitness streak. Justin meticulously plans his training program & nutrition guide for every client by doing his research on the goals you set for yourself and your limitations. He coached me diligently as I made my foray into strength training by demonstrating and explaining the importance of every form and move. I’d highly recommend Justin as a personal trainer because of his wealth of experience & patience.

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 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.

Debi Stickler is so compassionate and wise. Her manner is non-judgemental and non-intimidating, therefore letting crucial thoughts and feelings surface. These qualities make her a fantastic life coach! We must reach the roots of issues before we can grow and flourish and she is an amazing facilitator in this process. Thank you Debi!!!!

Immediate healing in tumors in lower abdomen ( one was like a mid size grapefruit, and the other one was like a golf-ball size). They disappered same day, after session. WOW! My pain was gone right away, and still gone in lower abdomen. Immediate healing in car-sickness, mental ballancing (before I used to switch over numbers, when I was writing). My stress, fears, and angers were gone. I feel more relief, and still feel it.I can focus more, I feel calm, and in peace. And still feel that way. She ballanced my energy field, body field, emotional field, spiritual body field. She lifted that burden, what was pushing me down. I feel so healthy, so alive. She healed my hip-joint, before it was dislocated two times. Now feel so strong. No pain, and no discomfort in my knees. No pain in my shoulders. Feel so much love. My digestion so much better. I can eat spicy food. She is the best! I am so blessed to know her. She saved my health and my life for sure. Thank you, Beloved Jacquie

Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!

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 have been seeing Emily for life coaching for a month - I'm working on sorting out some career and relationship challenges. We've been meeting over the phone when I travel and at a quiet coffee shop when I'm in town. Emily's communication is really wonderful. Sometimes the sessions feel emotionally difficult - and Emily is supportive of my journey. She's never judgmental. She asks deep questions. In my time with Emily I've made progress. I feel better about where I am. I'm really thankful for this great service she offers.

Rachel is the number one, brilliant and genuine Life coach! If you want the results, she is for you! When I was referred to Rachel (she was highly recommended by a dear friend of mine), my life was falling into pieces and I was uncertain which direction should I take to move forward. Rachel helped me in every little detail to transform my life for better professionally and personally, and got the wanted results in a matter of couple sessions, although we continued working together for 6 months because you don't want to stop the pleasure of coaching process and can not get enough! Her vast professional experience is very rare and unique. I would recommend Rachel Jacobs "Jacobs and Associates" to anyone who craves a change, want to improve their career and relationships, open to new opportunities and ready to take new heights. Rachel is highly professional, extremely qualified, resourceful, right to the point, attentive to detail, punctual and fun to be around! Coaching with Rachel will enrich, empower and inspire you! It will help you live the life of your dreams! Coaching sessions with Rachel is a must have for any successful person!!! Fondly, Masha Shidlovskaya

Emily helped me to re-write a very old resume so that it felt more like me when I applied for a new job. She was extremely professional but also made me feel comfortable when we had our first conversation. She also helped me to see how much I've done in the last few years at work that I'm really proud of. She has great attention to detail and is a wonderful communicator. I would love to go to her for coaching in the next year after I get settled in my new job because just from catching a glimpse of who Emily is during our few interactions, I feel like she's someone I can trust and who would be great in helping me to pave my path professionally.

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.

Michelle is an incredible mentor and career coach. First, I love that she is very high empathy and supportive. Michelle listens in a way that makes people feel comfortable, and she seeks to connect on a deeper level. She's also seen it all herself. Across her years in venture capital, management consulting, and fast-paced tech companies, Michelle has learned and succeeded in diverse, highly demanding environments. Because of these experiences, she's able to consistently provide both high-level perspective *and* super concrete, actionable next steps for career development. Finally, what I most appreciate about Michelle is that she's not afraid to give a push every now and then. She knows how to challenge people in the right ways. Meeting Michelle has accelerated my professional learning, and I highly recommend her to anyone.

I began working with Tatyana years ago while recovering from a severe break to my sacrum. It had been a few years since the break, but I had tried many different types of treatments and none provided me with any relief and my life had been substantially altered from my life pre-break. The first session got the pain I was feeling in everyday under control, but after that she began to work with me so I am now able to be nearly as active as I was before the injury. I would imagine it would be lovely to work with Tatyana without injury or pain, but her extensive background in healing methodologies, she is the best medicine for recovery.

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.
