Zion Health helped me to be honest with myself. I learned what worked for me to reach my goals such as a tenacious, encouraging trainer who kept me accountable for trainings. I work best in the morning vs afternoons and with in home training. Zion Health also helps with tips and recommendations for eating habits. Goal settings is broken into reachable increments and setbacks are not life shattering. They reset goals, determine what went wrong, and encourage small tweaks. I've lost 30lbs in 6 months with their coaching and discipline.

I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved!

I've worked with Justin from the Kula Team for personal training for the past six months. The dedication and passion he has for health and fitness is evident. From day one he works with you on a plan to achieve your goals. He incorporates fitness, diet and recovery into his plans to make sure you get results! He continually changes up the fitness routines to make sure your fitness levels keep improving. Each month we set a focus, a goal and reflect on the past month. Ive seen trainers in the past who very passively watch their clients. Justin is very involved making sure you have proper form and are being challenged. His feedback is effective and well-researched. When I had some issues with shoulder tightness I came in the next day and he was ready with some stretches and techniques to help target that! The Kula Team also has an amazing meal prep plan to get you started or to help you continue on the right path to health. Their bowls and snacks are tasty, varied and affordable! I highly recommend checking out Kula Wellness!

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.

Mo is a fantastic trainer. He is very knowledgeable, a true expert in his field. He's a compassionate, attentive trainer. Be prepared to be pushed outside of your comfort zone during your training sessions. He makes training fun and you'll rarely do the same routine twice. The variety of exercises and support I feel keep me coming back for more...not to mention the results. You won't find a better trainer anywhere else.

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.

My first reiki attunement really couldn't have gone any better. Pragati took every precaution to make me feel comfortable and welcome in her home. She is an excellent communicator and was willing to work with my hectic schedule. Besides that, she is highly intuitive, bright and intelligent; truly a gifted healer. I left feeling full of light and ready with all the necessary tools for the next step in my journey. :) I can't wait to see her again for further training.

My Experience working with Amanda on bettering and enhancing my path to vitality was absolutely incredible. She had amazing attention to detail and had me look into aspects of my life that I hadn’t considered to be something that would affect me. She is a brilliant coach and really motivated and inspired me. She helped me to see my best life and the possibilities and potential of myself. The steps and guidance she provided me with have given me tools that I can use throughout my daily life through it’s unpredictable and changing ways. I am always prepared to handle situations that I before would have stressed over or avoided due to anxiety. She also helped me with my gut health which was resulting in my skin having reactions that I just couldn’t get rid of. Everything she does is for you and she’s genuinely cares and wants to help you. Her coaching has changed my life and I highly recommend her. She is an absolute goddess and wonderful human being.

I was really anxious and miserable because I had to go off my antidepressant medication during my pregnancy. Not only your coaching skills but your complete psychotherapeutic experience helped me learn to manage my stress levels and to prioritize my work schedule to find time for my own self nurture. You gave me many parenting resources and I feel confident and happy as a mother to Rebecca. First I was skeptical about my hability to get thrue this period without medication, but your guidance made all the difference in my daugther's and my own wellbeing. Thank you, your support got me through a very difficult time.

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.

Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care. Arya has helped me to: -cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork -focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways -navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family -recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action -and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find. There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!

Working with Lucy Curran on my Vet Tech. resume and cover letter was an amazing experience. Previous to working with Lucy I thought I had a good resume and cover letter. Lucy’s changes to my resume and cover letter made them both look and sound amazing. Her knowledge of knowing how to convey a positive message to an employer made my resume and cover letter really stand out. My new resume is now tailored to fit my personality and skills. I am now proud to present my flawless resume and cover letter to any prospective employer. I am so happy with the help provided by Lucy that I would recommend her to anyone who needs to just start a new resume and cover letter, or to someone who thinks that their resume and cover letter may be good enough.

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'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!

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.
