After a long deliberation with my self , I decided to finally get myself a personal trainer. I've never worked out a day in my life (except the normal stroll with my dog , every other day) . So this was a little scary. But thankfully Eric made this experience a wonderful one. From the first email, address me by name and acknowledged my current situation and goals that were included in the questionnaire ( the other trainers I had respond to me, we're like, on auto reply or something. Maybe they were out on vacation? Idk) Anyway, pro health was the best decision I've made. If your nervous about working out, suffer from anxiety or just not sure if you can really pull it off. Eric will help you reach your goals and you'll see results fast. I did. The work out plan he had for me was 100% customized for me. Within the first 2 weeks my butt and hips were getting toner then I've ever seen them, it felt so good seeing my body transform so fast. And to be honest I WAS NOT dieting, HOWEVER at the same time my mind didn't want a bunch of junk food no more and my moods we're so much better and i motivated everyday. Pro health is a perfect example of what a personal trainer should be knowledgeable, ( I had a lot of random questions and he was able to answer them every time ) friendly, confident and makes sure you have a personal experience reaching your goals and keeps you motivated. Keep up the good work! Your amazing

I was looking for a yoga instructor to introduce me to the practice and to help me manage the soreness and work related stress held within my body. Allison has exceeded my expectations with her expertise and patience in teaching me poses which specifically address my needs. After just a few sessions, I have felt much more limber and relaxed overall, and I look forward to incorporateing the practice into my daily routine. I highly recommend Allison as a personal yoga coach for all levels of experience.

“I can't say enough about Lisa. Since our first text, Lisa has been there to answer all my questions. The first time I talked to Lisa (phone call) to discuss the possibility of hiring her as my personal trainer, she spent over 45 minutes asking me questions and discussing a workout plan. After this call, I knew she was the one to hire. My workout sessions with Lisa are never boring. She is focused and knowledgeable. If you are reading this review, don’t hesitate to hire Lisa. She is an exceptional personal trainer. I am so happy to have found her. I know that Lisa will not only help me transform my body at 50 😊 but my bad eating habits. Thank you, Lisa!

Jonna has been my personal trainer for many years. She is very knowledgeable in her job. If you are looking to get back in shape or train for a competition Jonna is who you want. She adjust routines/exercises to fit your level. At 69 I was still able to work out with the 30 year olds with minor adjustments in the exercises. She makes everyone feel comfortable and gives lots of encouragement. If you follow her nutrition plans you will get rid of your excess body fat quickly. Everyone that works out together get a great workout and has fun at the same time. Jonna is able to make your workouts challenging as well as fun. I have worked out with some who have gone on and won competitions. It is amazing how she can transform the body in a few months.

I first heard Julia give a talk at a function and asked if she could coach me about some things I felt stuck about. Because of her life coaching, my life is transforming because of the Julia's style and technique; she has encouraged me to open up and find out what really are my life's desires. I have learned how to put these goals into personal and professional daily actions--I am excited to see how wonderfully my life is unfolding! I highly recommend Julia's warm and knowledgeable life coaching--it has been a game changer for me.

Cory is the first personal trainer I've ever had, and since our first session together I've been hooked. She listens to your goals and creates a plan that fits for YOU to help you reach them. I have seen so much progress in my body since we started working together, which is such an empowering feeling. I even hit one of my forever fitness goals the other day! She is always quick to respond, uber-punctual, and very professional. You can tell that training is her passion and she really wants to see her clients succeed. If you have any hesitations about affording it - just do yourself a favor and make it work. It's worth it.

We hate going to the gym. We also have a newborn, so it's been really hard recently finding the time to exercise. We enjoy working out together, but we can never agree on which workout DVD to pop in, and we also really wanted to avoid buying a ton of expensive equipment too (there is nowhere in our apartment to store it! LOL.) Lian's new method of training was THE perfect solution for us. Convenient, affordable, personalized, Lian created and implemented innovative workout solutions for each of our individual goals, so that we could work out together, maximize our time to train and achieve solid results in a couple months' time. He training methodology just made it so easy to stay on track and to stay accountable. Within one week, our workout sessions were effortlessly streamlined into our weekly routine, and we couldn't believe how easy the transition was. We definitely plan on continuing to train with her, using this new cutting-edge format. Honestly, we will never go back to a traditional personal trainer again. There is absolutely nothing else like this out there right now, and we believe she is truly onto something big :) We have recommended Lian Price and her training platform to all of our friends and family. This is hands-down THE best way to train for fast, affordable and truly lasting results, and we are so happy we made the switch! Thank you, Lian, for helping us BOTH get our pre-baby bodies back and making it so incredibly convenient, easy and rewarding :) M&G Wellington, FL

Allyson is working with our college-bound daughter as a life coach, guiding her through inventories, exercises and personal life strategies to help her prepare for the challenges that lie ahead, as well as tackle current struggles including anxiety. Allyson is incredibly encouraging and nurturing. She uses relevant, yet wise methodology that is tailored to my daughter's needs and learning style. I would not hesitate to recommend Allyson to anyone looking to learn more about themselves, work through areas of struggle, or just regain the joy in everyday life.

“Corry,  I cannot thank you enough. We've made so much progress in such a short time. Way more than I could have ever made on my own and way more than 3 years of therapy…I can hardly believe the breakthroughs. I have a much greater sense of who I am and where I want to go and what I want to do in my life, both personally and professionally, than when we began just 3 weeks ago! Truly amazing! You are awesome at this! Truly gifted! :) THANK YOU!” Betsy DeHaas

Dom's ability to connect and give relatable experiences during the coaching sessions is 2nd to none. You're not going to get as many genuinely interested coaches as Dom. His focus is on the individual's success, that's what coaching is all about!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.   

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.
