John knows his stuff. I went to him for a couple sessions to get tips on form for compound lifts (squats, deadlifts, barbell row) and he identified issues with my body and with my form and recommended stretches to help me warmup properly. He's also a great listener. I felt at ease interrupting him and asking him any questions and he did a great job going beyond the question I'd asked and providing excellent context. He also went out of his way to provide nutritional guidance.

Ive been working with John for little over a month and Ive seen results. Ive lost almost 10lbs. He is very responsive and answers all my questions. Im picky eater which makes it hard to come up with meal plan but he did and tailored to my food likes this way I dont feel like giving up. I recommend him if your looking for help with nutrition. He is responsive thru texts which is always helpful with my busy schedule. He also checks your food log which i like it keeps me honest and on top of it.

James is an excellent trainer. We worked progressively 2x/week over the last 4 months to increase strength training at my pace and pushed me gently to increase capacity. In addition we added cardio including boxing which has been great and fun! He has inspired me so much that I've built a mini-gym including olympic bars, hand weights, kettle bell, boxing gloves. Even when I had some shoulder discomfort he went out of his way to get me IcyHot to help and advised me how to heal the tendinitis. He also has great tips on nutrition especially protein intake that's important when you're doing toning/strength training. Overall I've never been happier with the balance of toning and cardio in my exercise routine.

Kula Wellness is an awesome group to work with. Justin has so much knowledge of how the body works as a whole and how to work all the small pieces to support the larger goals. In addition, he provides great nutritional advice to support your fitness goals, over and above the training aspect. I loved working with him to lose weight and tone areas that I've always struggled with. He is extremely patient, caring, and understanding, and there is never any doubt that he absorbs everything you ever say to him and takes the time to get to know you.

I have trained with Jarred for almost four months, and have I have made significant gains in my health goals. He is a true professional. My muscle mass has increased while not minimizing my flexibility. He does not just give you a cookie cutter nutritional plan. He instead works to help you create one that you are invested in. I gladly recommend him.

A little information about me. I've been overweight most of my life and have tried countless programs to lose weight and to regain my health. One thing I had never tried was personal training. In December 2016, I found Scott Meade through Thumbtack. Scott was the first Personal Trainer to respond to my inquiry. I felt an immediate connection with him. He invited me to meet him at the gym on a Sunday. He wanted to give me a tour of the gym and for us to have a casual chat. As an obese female, I was extremely nervous to meet him. He made me feel at ease and I appreciated the time he spent with me talking about his passions; exercise and nutrition. I sensed how genuine he was. His excitement is what jumpstarted my excitement to begin this journey with him. I started training with Scott on January 2nd. Here are just a few reasons why I need Scott besides me on this journey: 1) The guy knows his stuff. Not only is he physically fit, but he's also smart. He stays current in his field and never hesitates to share new information to help develop my knowledge. He doesn't just tell me what to do, he provides reasoning and teaches me along the way. 2) He believes in me more than I believe in myself. He never allows my mental blocks to stop me from doing my best. He's positive and encourages me to tap into my positive spirit. Not always easy. 3) He's responsive and organized. He stays on top of my nutrition and provides feedback on what I'm doing well and what I need to change. He doesn't sugar coat things because that's not how we achieve results. Totally makes sense. 4) He's creative with his workouts and thinks outside of the box. Workouts are never repetitious which helps keep me dialed in. I like the variety he incorporates in my plan. 5) When I'm in the gym with him, it's about ME. I could go on and on about Scott. If you're looking for a Personal Trainer, reach out and meet him. You won't regret it. Meeting Scott was one of the best things that happened to me.

Ben is hands down the best trainer I've ever worked with. I've had trainers at every gym I've been a member of and saw some results, but always ended up hitting a plateau after a few months. My trainers would just say I must not be eating well enough or doing my exercises at home even though I was following our programs carefully. Ben's style is very different than trainers I've had in the past. He's extremely detail oriented with technique and knowledgeable about virtually everything related to fitness and nutrition. I asked him a question that he said he would research, and by the time I got home he had sent me 3 articles and his own personal take on what they meant! At first I was worried that we would spend too much time talking about details I didn't really care about, but after a few sessions I definitely understand why we spent as much time as we did walking me through all the muscles, terms, and science of training. He actually told me his priority is for me to have all the information I need to reach my goals without him, because I'm the only one that can really be responsible for my results. Every other trainer I've had insisted that I needed to see them almost every day for months or I won't get anywhere, so his honest desire to see me be successful on my own genuinely shocked me. I definitely recommend training with Ben, he clearly loves what he's doing and if you want to get in shape he'll show you (with facts) the shortest way to get there.

In my personal journey to health and wellness, I have been fortunate to experience all of Alma’s different services. She has educated and inspired me to make healthier choices for myself and my family. Alma is very passionate about plant-based nutrition and helping people transition to a lifestyle that is sustainable and environmentally conscientious. I have had a grocery tour with her and she pointed out healthier substitutes and alternatives to everyday convenience foods that my family was accustomed to. She recommended certain supplements and essential oils that have supported me in balancing my hormones after having children. Her bodywork services have done wonders for me and have further contributed to my overall well-being.

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 would definitely recommend Armando for his depth of knowledge in both personal training techniques as well as comprehensive nutrition. After training with him over 6 months (kept renewing our contract), I can attest to all the new techniques I've learned from him that have greatly helped me in my weight loss and maintenance goals. Armando always maintains a positive and friendly vibe during our sessions and will go out of his way to explain every move in great detail. Again, definitely recommended.

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

I found Teresa to be a great source of nutritional info as well as a great listener during a what was a difficult time for me. I had a number of questions about my specific food habits and what to change. I was sick of my own bad habits. Teresa made sure to address all of my concerns. I found her very advice very practical and udown to earth. She was upbeat and positive about the changes I had already made, and the immediate and future benefits I would feel, which made it easier to think about changing. It wasn't that she just encouraged me to eat a ton of green veggies. What helped is the way she said this. She was empathetic and said things in a way I could hear. For example, she was able to share how she loves cooking up a plate of fresh kale or other greens with olive oil. That way, I could think of greens as something I would actually want to eat a lot of. Thanks, Teresa!

Personal Trainer Martin Villanueva In 2013, I began an ambitious plan to lose weight and “get in shape.” I was in such poor condition that I had difficulty breathing when I walked. I hadn’t done any exercise at all for 40 years. I hated the idea of exercise, but I knew I had to do something for my health. I met Martin, and asked him to help me. He began with simple exercises at my level giving me encouragement to continue with both cardio and resistance. We progressed at a pace just challenging enough to keep me trying, but not too difficult to be discouraging. Martin is a good listener. He used a variety of exercises so I would not get bored. He helped me with fitness and with nutrition to reach my goals for a healthy lifestyle change. I lost 90 pounds and have kept it off for 4 years and still counting. Karen Rice

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.
