Vic F. says, "The main thing I hope you take away from this review is that you have found one of the best personal trainers in the Bay Area. Kolten has been my trainer for years. We train every day, Monday through Friday, no exceptions. Kolten is a badass. He works out constantly and competes in American Ninja Warrior, knows as much about physiology as my actual medical doctor, and truly is such an enjoyable and fun person to train with. I've definitely failed a rep before from laughing at his jokes lol. And, he drives results. I learn a lot from Kolten about form for progress. We drill form over and over, and it turns out in the past, I think that was the reason I had plateaued: bad form points that made the lifts impossible at a certain weight. We addressed these one-by-one, and it was kind of exciting actually. I felt like I made faster progress in muscle gain and fat loss than I had at other times when focusing on this. We track how I'm feeling as well, and change things up before they might feel too repetitive. The bulk of our workouts are lifting, but weekly we swap in outdoor workouts, body weight, flexibility work, and so on. Kolten keeps track of our training plan and progress (which is my personal preference,) and it's nice to not have to really think too much about that while still being able to talk through how I'm doing. Kolten has gotten me onto a cleaner nutrition game. He referred me for a few sessions with a nutritionist. I had never done this before, but after having done it I think I'd recommend this in some situations. For example if you are super regimented, a meal plan from a nutritionist designed with your trainer's input can trivialize what you consume in many ways. I appreciate him showing me this. Overall it just always seems like he's super well-connected in the broader industry and knows all the best folks. I think Kolten's great, and I really do recommend him if you are after results while working with a person who is just awesome to be around."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to hire a house sitter?

House-sitting can be a lifesaver when you’re leaving town for any length of time. Whether you work remotely, you’re taking a much-needed vacation, or you just want to road-trip for a few days, it’s wise to have a pro keep an eye on your house and pets while you’re gone. Your home is more likely to stay safe and you won’t have to wrangle the kitty into a kennel to travel with you. The national average pet-sitting price ranges between $20 and $30. Pet-sitting and house-sitting costs will vary based on where you live in the country and regional labor rates. Another factor in cost is how long you want the house-sitter to stay. Some people prefer to have the house-sitter stay the night at their house, perhaps to care for an elderly pet or simply to keep a watchful eye on the home at all times. Overnight stays will cost more, ranging anywhere from $50 to $100, depending on services provided. For day visits, house-sitting and pet-sitting prices will increase incrementally the longer the visit and the more service you want performed. For example, a quick 10-minute visit to feed and walk the pet and bring in the mail could be $12.50, a 25-minute visit could be $18, a 40-minute visit $25, and a 50-minute visit $32.

How much should you pay for a pet sitter?

Pet sitting provides your precious pet with in-home care. A pet-sitter can make a brief visit during the day to provide snacks, playtime or affection, or stay at your house for one or more nights to tend to your pet. Prices for pet-sitting will vary based on length of the visit. Nationally, pet sitting prices range from $20 to $30, although prices run higher for your sitter to stay the night. Prices will also be affected by where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pet-sitting prices based on length of time and region:

  • 30-minute visit: $17 in a small Texas town.
  • 30-minute visit: $25 in Southern California.
    • 45-minute visit: $28.
    • 60-minute visit: $32.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $50 in Texas.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $85 in Southern California.
    • 12 hours: $100.
    • 24 hours: $200. This is a good option for a sick, elderly or brand-new pet that needs constant supervision.
