I had my doubts about getting marriage counseling, but when I started going to Michelle she proved to me how helpful it really is. So much that I think every young couple needs coaching in order to avoid serious relationship issues in the future. With her loving sidekick/spouse helping out, it provides a male and female aspect of each situation that comes up. Overall, Michelle is a great, caring person that will provide you with positive energy, motivation, and useful resources for life (not just marriage counseling). Coaching or no coaching, it's always nice to be blessed with the presence of such a person in your lifetime.

Plain and simple, Dorothy has made me feel good. Her sessions are insightful, inspiring, and highly motivating. Through her knowledge of reiki and other methods of healing, I walked away from the session feeling like I could accomplish anything. What I liked best was the time and care she took with my situation and offered up some wonderful insight on how best to proceed. Her method is one of a kind and I would recommend anyone to have a session with Dorothy. I am looking forward to more sessions with Dorothy in the future.

She started as my Zumba instructor. In those classes she kicks the trash out of me with her constant combinations of dance, leg lunges and arm workouts which are awesome. I feel great after her workouts and know I will feel the soreness the next day but its all worth it. I work out harder and harder and she is always there pushing me to do better. After her classes she always makes time for anyone who needs to speak to her about their diet or what workouts should be good for them. She also took on the assignment on training my husband who has MS and she pushes him beyond his limit. Even though I have only known her almost a year as my instructor and trainer she has also become my friend and someone I can talk to when I need help or coaching. Thank you Johanna :)

I came to Loocidity looking to improve my resume so I would get more traction with hiring managers. Instead of a quick glance and some brief recommendations for improvement, I got a coach who took the time to get to know me, my strengths and weaknesses, taught me how to cater a resume to a specific job, and guided me through every step of the interview process. The coaching methodology isn't quick, but it's thorough, straightforward, and priced to get the job done rather than to count the minutes on the clock.

LaMonte brings so much experience to personal training! I have had other personal trainers in the past but he is the first to have such a great understanding of nutrition and the emotional connection to food. Whenever I had struggles with my nutrition he was able to help me make that connection so that I could focus on my goals again. Each session was challenging and I enjoyed being pushed to my limits with him. I would recommend LaMonte to anyone looking to improve their fitness goals. Weather you’re an athlete or a novice. LaMonte has the skills to help you get in the best shape both mentally and physically.

Dave has been my trainer since about 2006 and I couldn't be happier with his service. As a gym rat since high school, I've switched a lot between training myself and using a variety of personal trainers. I'm well educated in mechanics and nutrition and can spot a poser a mile away. Dave is certified by the ACSM and knows his stuff well. And although I might do fine on my own, I find that using a skilled trainer like Dave keeps me accountable and pushes me on days I don't feel like working. And it really helps that he shares my training philosophies and is easy to get along with. His current facility at Newport Workout is clean and uncrowded. If there's anything I could criticize, its that he's too far away now that I've moved up the highway. If you're even thinking about it, just try him out and you'll leave impressed– Highly Recommended! (in my humble but accurate opinion :)

I met Sami while she hosted a 50 people presentation in Bali. I wanted some personal coaching on how to work on the 8 areas of life, in order for me to be more balanced in my life. Sami understands exactly what I'm talking about and immediately directed me to the right exercices. I feel like I'm taking huge steps towards my goals right now.

Judy’s program is so valuable in every way. I felt it was a very essential program for everyone in whatever stage of life to take a pause and reassess and refresh. Judy ISN the real jewel behind it. She brings an energy and enthusiasm to every call. She helps you see things you may not have seen yourself with each weeks work, and is able to personalize the material to each client. I have referred her to Teo close friendship who also rave about how fundamentally important and life’s changing the programs are. Judy is part coach, part psychologist, part mentor, part everything. She really brings so much insight and experience. I loved this program and her guidance in making it a part of my life.

Dr. Ty T.
Verified review

I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

Jake is unique. He has a magical formula to get the best out of people in their quest to achieve athletics goals. How does it work? I'm not sure, but it does! Jake has taken my son Blake from being a handy swimmer to a highly successful triathlete who has won many age group races. I have now jumped on the bandwagon and joined the System Jake crew. Jake's winning formula includes a comprehensive approach to coaching that allows athletes to overcome limiting beliefs. This is the key to achieving goals that were once thought unachievable. Call Jake for a chat today, you will exceed your goal in no time.

    Amy changed my life. Not by telling me what to do, or what to think, but by helping me to discover myself in a focused and positive way. She never judged me, and she helped me find a path to self acceptance that has been unbelievably freeing. I thought I could handle everything, that I didn't need a coach, but it turns out that it was the most productive time I've ever spent. Try it, even if you're skeptical. She's incredible, and it's worth it.

    Celeste is a very kind, caring and patient woman. I learned a lot from her during out coaching sessions together. She taught me how to set high goals for myself. We went over how to write and format a resume and how to write a concise cover letter. We also discussed my talents and possible career options for the present and future. Through my work with Celeste, I have become a more confident career woman and I'm more sure of myself and the career path I am going to follow. Working with Celeste has changed my life! I highly recommend her to anyone!

      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.
