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.

Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! 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.

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.

The best thing about Debi’s coaching abilities for me is that she made me feel so comfortable from the moment I walked in. This really helped me get to the deeper issues because I was so at ease. Even though I can only see her when I am in San Francisco periodically, it makes the trip worthwhile! She honed right in on several challenges and even recommended books for me to read since I cant go all the time. The books were perfect! I really feel she has an intuitive sense that allows her to move swiftly right to the issues that I couldn’t see. I highly recommend her.

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 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 training with Conrad since 2014. I had worked with other trainers for a number of years, but after training with Conrad for only six months, I was able to see unprecedented results and not only reach my personal fitness goals, but exceed them! The immediate results that I was able to observe in such a short time blew my mind! It was both rewarding and motivation to continue working even harder. Conrad introduced me to the benefits of heavy weight training, and he helped me to change my approach to eating and diet. What I like about working with Conrad is that he really understands the physiology behind everything we do, and he really listens to what my goals and concerns are. I can trust that my fitness plan is well thought out and methodical, and that there is a purpose behind every exercise and circuit that we do. My workout is really personalized for me. I recently turned 40, and I really wanted to do something to physically challenge myself. Thanks to Conrad, I now have two Spartan Races under my belt. He trained me so hard and prepared me so well that I had a blast getting through the race with no problem. I would never have been able to do it without Conrad's guidance. Conrad has helped me to get stronger and leaner than I've ever been. I feel like a different person and I look forward to pushing myself to the next level!

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

I am currently a special education teacher looking to move into an administrative position. Leanne was a huge resource with assisting in locating resume examples and educating me on what a professional resume should entail. She proofread my current resume and gave me constructive feedback on how to present myself for my desired job. She read and provided feedback for job cover letters, especially highlighting appropriate experience for each job I was applying for. She was highly professional, kind, and highly effective with coaching me in regards to my resume. I highly recommend her and Communication Coaching to anyone in need of building a resume and all other services! She is a great person to work with and I will always refer her when someone is in need of coaching for public speaking, editing of professional documents, and or advice on advancing careers.

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.

    Sasha is a yogi. He is definitely the greatest yogi I know, but then again he’s the only yogi I know. Sasha takes yoga very seriously - he reads lots of books by the great yogis, studies chakras and views it as a spiritual practice above all. He took a Kundalini Yoga instructor class and wants to help others on their spiritual path. I once visited Sasha with my girlfriend, and since he’s a friend of mine, he offered us a class which he called “simple”. Since I’m definitely not a yogi I found nothing simple about this class. Let me tell you, I was quite impressed with Sasha’s command of his body. The things he does with his stomach are kinda crazy. My muscles were sore for 3 days after that. This was mighty impressive to watch Sasha practice his passion. Sasha approach to yoga is very spiritual. He hums, chants mantras and all that stuff. If you’re into spirituality, you might get a kick out of that. He can use yoga to invoke rather intense psychedelic experiences in himself, and probably in you, too. You have to agree that this is an impressive ability. Yoga is an ancient art of discovering the reality of your existence. Yogis train for many years to attain the absolute truth and perceive reality for what it is. Those yogis who attain to truth are called gurus. Sasha is no guru yet, but he has definitely worked through some of his attachments with the help of yoga and plant medicine. So he might help you start the journey of self-discovery, as long as you don’t get too attached to yoga or Sasha in the process, and focus on the experience that he can help you have rather than his explanation of your experience, which would probably involve chakras. You will also probably get more healthy. Actually, if you practice consistently - for sure. But if you’re looking at yoga as an eastern-flavored gymnastics, Sasha is not for you. He is well above that level. You’d be better off booking a class at your local gym.

    Rick is a stellar coach! He helped me through huge transitions in my life. I have struggled my whole life with identifying my true passions. I had many interests but nothing that felt authentically me, that brought pure joy to my life because I loved it so much. I was searching outside of myself for new projects and prospects that I thought might help me attain what I needed to find happiness, fulfillment and success. Rick took me through the passion test in a way that guaranteed getting to my top 5 passions. There’s a process to it that will not fail even if you have no idea what your passions are and if you do think you know, you’ll be shocked to find out that you may be limiting yourself with what you think they are. Once Rick took me through the process, my passions seemed obvious to me because they were the things I dreamed of as a kid before I started telling myself all the reasons I could no longer pursue those dreams. My perceptions and built-in beliefs about myself and about life in general we’re keeping me from my passions and joy. Rick was relentless in keeping my attention focused on literally reprogramming my beliefs and perceptions about myself until little by little the new and healthy beliefs stuck. That’s when the real results started manifesting in my daily physical life. Doors and opportunities opened up and started flowing to me in support of my passions. My old beliefs were false but they became my truth because I started believing the lies I told myself. The stark contrast of my passions unfolding before my eyes literally brought tears to my eyes when I started seeing this. After eight months of coaching with Rick, I am truly living and actualizing my passions not only in my career but life in general. I no longer engage in anything that does not bring me joy or that is aligned with my passions. My friendships have shifted into much healthier relationships. The dysfunctional relationships have either fallen by the wayside or have healed as a result of healthier beliefs about myself and life. Life seems to be flowing with me...or me with it rather than feeling stuck. I can’t count the ways my life has changed and become balanced, joyful, prosperous and fun as a result of Rick’s dynamic, relentless and loving coaching skills and personality. You may hear many things from Rick that challenge you to look deeply into your self and you may not like what you hear and see but if you really want your life to improve, you will one day be grateful that you have Rick on your side. He gives his heart, mind and soul to help you achieve your highest self. He has certainly found his own passion!

    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.
