Gerard is a great personal trainer, highly knowledgable I highly recommend him! He knows how to strike a balance between keeping the work out fun, yet, efficient. In addition to PT, he offers classes and incorporates Beachbody challenge exercises. My favorite is the Abb-session class.

Vicki is a fantastic sports nutritionist. I race cars professionally and struggled to find high quality foods whilst maintaining my busy travel schedule. After just a few appointments my entire body was thanking me and I would recommend her to 10/10 people. There is no better feeling than a happy digestive tract and you will not regret the time spent with her.

James is a perfect mix of tough and encouraging, and can help anyone of all fitness levels. He can adjust to the kind of fitness or circuit training you want. He may push you hard at times but he’s fun, flexible and respectful. All he wants is for you to reach the fitness goal each client desires. James combines the best nutrition and circuit training that's best for you to achieve the best results. He is one of the greatest personal trainers I've ever encountered.  He’s funny, warm, approachable, demanding, rigorous and really knows his stuff.  You just cannot do any better. I highly recommend him as a personal trainer.

Jared is a great personal trainer. Whatever your goals are, lose weight, gain muscle, etc., he takes his job seriously and will help you. He is not an intense trainer, he is calm, knowledgeable, and always happy to workout with you. He wants you to achieve your goals and is genuinely happy when you are making progress towards your goals.

Training with Scott is a life changing experience. He is absolutely the best personal trainer I ever have. He is knowledgeable and responsible. I feel like I'm in good hands right after first session with him. I can be so focused on training cuz he has the processed planned for me. And when I have any question, I just text him, and he is soooo nice that he answer each one of them. I've been training with him for 3 weeks so far, I can feel my muscle growing and my body having more energy. I'm sure as long as I don't move too far, I'll keep training with him. I highly recommend him to anyone that want to switch to a more healthy life style and thinking of hiring a personal trainer to help achieve any fitness goal. I don't know about other trainers, but I do know this one is GREAT :).

Ben is an outstanding massage therapist and personal trainer! I booked him for a deep tissue massage because I could barely move after all my 5k training. I'm not gonna lie, it was super painful but the next day I felt like a new man! He offered me a free training session at his private gym and I took him up on the offer - one of the best decisions I've ever made. He's super detail oriented and showed me a bunch of exercises to make my knees and hips more stable. I ran a mile without any pain for the first time in YEARS this morning and had to write a review! I'll definitely be training with him more frequently and can't recommend him enough. (And the gym is awesome, there's even a backyard training area!)

Hiring Gretchen was one of the best moves I made for losing weight. I had spent many years crash dieting, eating low calorie diets in an attempt to lose weight, only to gain it back quickly and pack even more pounds. She quickly detailed a meal plan for me to adhere to that was nutritious and filling, also giving me details on how to deal with eating at restaurants. Yes, it will be work on your end to measure and cook, but it's made my life easier not having to think about what I need to eat. My main battle with eating has always been mental and Gretchen really was there to coach me through my toughest moments of where I just wanted to give up ( Meal planning through the holidays was tough!) The weekly checkins were what I needed to get through this process knowing that I had someone that I had to report to (Makes me less tempted to eat unhealthy.) If you need a coach that will help set up a healthy sustainable lifestyle for you, I recommend Gretchen.

Alma has demonstrated to me an intelligent, informed and passionate approach toward leading a healthy and energetic lifestyle. I’ve found that her advice has changed my life and dramatically improved my general health. Specifically, I’ve observed amazing results in improved energy levels, faster healing from recent cancer surgery and my overall well-being. I would recommend Alma for her deep knowledge and because she listens and is easy to talk and understand. Most importantly, if you're looking for a professional who genuinely cares about helping you achieve your personal health goals and realize measurable positive results, meet with her. You will be amazed!

Dr. Corbin is a true pro. When it comes to hiring someone to navigate through the nuisances of lifestyle and health needs for something as important as yours and your family’s nutrition, I would only leave it in the hands of a doctor who values holistic views on health. Dr. Corbin does just that with honest and valuable evaluations. He’s even turned me on to tools to help with other areas I’m trying to work on in my life like stress management.

I have had personal trainers before but only at a gym. When i trained with Armando Ramirez it was in the comfort of his home. He trained me in his garage and it was for a month. I told him I wanted a work out plan that would target a total body work out crunched into an hour. He first weighed me and tuck measurements. So I can see my progress. That was very helpful and I like that I felt comfortable with him. I liked how it was one on one without the crowded gym environment. Armando showed me how to enjoy working out instead of counting down the minutes. I liked how it was quick and do able on a weekly basis. He always made sure my form was correct. In the past other trainers didn't give me as much attention due to other clients in the gym. Armando also pushed me when he seen I wanted to give up. But it was not aggressive it was very motivational. He showed me that I was capable of exceeding in my work outs. One thing, Armando did not have to many work out machines but his work out consisted more of stability and balance. I liked that better because I can do those work outs anywhere. No GYM needed. I really recommend training with Armando!!

Marissa has been my nutritionist for 3 months now and I couldn't be more satisfied. I have seen vast improvements in my energy levels, have less cravings and I feel better then I have felt in years. I have even lost a few stubborn pounds and can now fit into my skinny jeans! All the recipes she recommends are super tasty and easy to follow. She has taught me to approach eating healthy and balanced meals in a realistic way that I have actually been able to enjoy and maintain. I would highly recommend working with her!

We are writing this testimonial a week after we had the first training session with Alina. We are two adults ages 62 and 56, who except for extended regular walks do not exercise. We felt lately that it is time we start exercising it is not to late to start at any age. Alina started our first session by explaining what she plans for us to do and and what we going to achieve by doing the exercises. After a set of stretching exercises, Alina showed us a routine of progressively challenging exercises, where she tracked how difficult or easy it was to do for us. We worked on balance and coordination, resistance training and core strengthening. And all of this in our first session. Alina carefully checked that she challenged us the right amount and made all exercises fun and engaging. She also selected the exercises we can do together using readily available tools. At the end of this first session we felt great, even though we realized that we have some muscles we have never used before. Alina also discussed with us the benefits of fasting and the elements of nutrition and obvious benefits of both. We are very thankful to Alina for her patience and encouragement. From now on we will be working out regularly to achieve the level of fitness we need for a healthy and enjoyable life. We would gladly recommend Alina to anyone looking to become fit and agile, flexible and balanced. M&M

Teresa was a delight to work with: she was knowledgable and personable, on time, reasonable price. She was also very encouraging and supportive. We went over a diet suggested by my doctor, and Teresa had a number of good ideas for easy additions to that diet. She also had very good specific suggestions for exercise studios and places to work. A very enjoyable and informative visit.

Lisa is the most understanding and amazing person. She really knows what you need for training and pushes you to your full potential. Sometimes when I think I can't do something or I am not confident in myself, she assesses how it is affecting me, corrects any issues and makes any modifications to insure that what I am doing is right for my body. She has dealt with multiple body issues that I have and has helped me work through them without hurting myself. I am lucky to have found someone that I owe a lot of my inspiration to and I am so thankful Lisa is my trainer. She cares about your goals and helps you reach them with integrative techniques which benefit your entire wellbeing!

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.
