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.

My massage with Dan was fantastic. He has a great blend of techniques and I left feeling so great. His coaching thought the session on breathing and visualization of letting go of stress was truly impactful. The 90 minutes flew by so fast! Truly a skilled practitioner who knows his stuff. I would not hesitate to visit Dan again.

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 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.

I am so grateful that this amazing healer was put in my path. In our few sessions, I have been given a sense of well-being using tools from Jacquie and her healing work with my spiritual team that I have been seeking for decades. Jacquie is very intuitive but it seemed that every time we worked together, the results were better and better. From our first session, I felt a sense of feeling lighter, more connected to my higher self and able to ask the questions and receive responses to continue our work. She is a healer. I am so impressed with her skill and dedication to me individually. I hope you will give yourself the gift of experiencing the healing Jacquie has to offer. You will be so glad you did.

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 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.

Kari is a magician!!! She walked into clutter, and finished leaving everything in its place and easy to find. We also found items that mean a lot to me like jewelry and old coins. You will be so happy you called and let her unclutter your life.

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.

David has done a wonderful job with my mom. He helped her gain strength and mobility. She became ill and wasn't able to work with David for a while and he still continued to check in on my mom and how she was progressing. My mom has been able to restart her training with David and I am so excited that my mom will continue to get stronger with David's help.

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.
