I met with Markshane earlier in May and through the preliminary tests that he did on me I was in pretty bad shape. You can tell that he genuinely wants you to get better with the way that he talks about health. He told me "I'm in this business with you to get out of business with you" which totally makes sense bc his gym is targeted for YOU so that you can improve your health. My trainer is Jeremy and he's awesome. I've definitely felt a massive increase in strength. What I like about him is that he is always taking notes about what weight I'm improving to and what I'm struggling with so we can make it stronger. He continuously pushes me and encourages me to keep going and he knows a lot about what he does! Shape Up Studio has been a great choice to inprove my health and lifestyle. Thanks, guys!

Dustin is an amazingly professional trainer that is highly responsive to the needs of his clients and we'll build a custom Training rooting for you based on your specific goals and resources. I met with him this evening at the park and she had me doing several of his high intensity interval routines that's just it my abilities and made it possible for him 2 gauge my aptitudes at this time. The workouts were challenging but not overwhelming and Dustin was very responsive to my needs whenever I was unable complete the set or if I was in pain he was able to switch out the routines to make it more comfortable and always kept a very positive motivational attitude. I'm looking forward to continuing working with him swords my health and athletic goals! To be thorough I am a 37 year old male that is trying to lose 35-45 pounds in body fat and gain a muscular toned physique so we'll see where we can go from here!

Lauren Allen is a phenomenal fitness coach and such an inspiration to all men and women. I have attended her Saturday bootcamps and not only did I leave with an energetic workout outdoors, but I left feeling wonderful about myself. I loved that she catered her boot camp to meet all levels of athleticism so that we all were able to receive an awesome butt kicking work out at our own pace. I would definitely recommend Lauren Allen!!

I was looking for a yoga instructor to introduce me to the practice and to help me manage the soreness and work related stress held within my body. Allison has exceeded my expectations with her expertise and patience in teaching me poses which specifically address my needs. After just a few sessions, I have felt much more limber and relaxed overall, and I look forward to incorporateing the practice into my daily routine. I highly recommend Allison as a personal yoga coach for all levels of experience.

I engaged with Diane at the most pivotal time in my life, when I had some critical decisions to make about what I was going to do next and needed to get back in touch with the things that were meaningful and effective for me at a deep level. There is no denying that we were successful in getting to a path forward, as I've come out of the coaching exercise more sure of myself, confident, resilient and grounded then I've felt in a long time. Diane overflows with positive energy and a wealth of knowledge. Everything that we did was guided by my own thoughts and reactions, so in a sense the accomplishment was achieved through a conversation with myself that she facilitated, making the results permanent and self reinforcing. I can't thank her enough for helping turn things around for me. The changes are profound and I would recommend that she can achieve the same for anyone in a similar need.

I had the pleasure of working with Juan for several months to help get me in the best shape of my life. I'm already in pretty decent shape, but the fact that Juan helped me shed more body fat and helped me reach my fitness goal was amazing. Juan is personable, professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and truly cares about your health, nutrition and fitness goals. Juan is a fantastic personal trainer because he treats every client different and applies necessary workouts and nutrition advice to their specific needs. Nothing is generic with him.

I had not worked out regularly for over ten years and was hesitant to get started. After my first session with Armin I realized how badly out of shape I was but after training with him for a few weeks, that has all changed. I lost weight but most importantly am so much stronger and mindful of my health. Armin is tough but not extreme and more important very encouraging. He is also very flexible with his schedule and will accommodate you if needed. He's a great person and I highly recommend training with him. You will get results!

Before I worked with Andrea, I had personal health issues, uneven strength on my body due to knee surgery that was 10 years ago, and not much experience with weight training. All I did was cardio and I noticed that wasn't helping me lose any body fat for the long run. I was also too shy to work in the weight rooms at public gyms, so I looked up a personal trainer. As a nutrition coach, she really makes you look at eating clean not as a "diet" but as a "change in health". I no longer looked to foods for comfort, but enjoyed having a more nutritious diet. My cravings for sweets stopped and my moods definitely boosted, which I think are the most important things in order to lose fat. Andrea really designs workouts specified for your goals and your body. She knows what she's doing and she has the professionalism that helps you through the workouts mentally. In the 7 months I've trained with her, it definitely was not an easy task. Focusing on my health, staying disciplined in my training, and fighting through plateaus - but without her I could not have done it myself. I am now noticeably leaner and stronger and have evenly strengthened my body. Most importantly, I feel better about myself and want to continue on this positive cycle throughout my life. She definitely beats any nutritional book or workout video you'll ever encounter, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!! Thank you Andrea!

Marjorie is, hands-down, the best "teacher" I've ever had. The reality is that to call her "teacher" wouldn't be enough. I came across Marjorie six years ago, when her class was recommended to me by another instructor, and I attended her class at then-Vira Yoga in NYC. I was blown away by everything about Marjorie: her knowledge of the whole body and of practicing yoga safely is above and beyond anyone I've ever met. I am a former soccer player with a history of chronic pain, and always shied away from regular yoga. Marjorie became my weekly ritual-I begin attending her Sunday 4 PM class at World Yoga Center whenever I could, and even sometimes went during lunch to her weekday classes. The modifications that she teaches are unlike any instructor I've ever met. She gently helps you find a way to be in every pose, commands the class with great warmth while also offering to help each student and pay attention to their alignment, and is available for consultation outside of class. She also is not like some yoga teachers, who move through the poses quickly and aren't sensitive to potential injury points. Marjorie is extremely experienced and teaches with safety first. she also incorporates sage wisdom, mindfulness, and recommendations for self-care and homeopathic remedies regularly. And she's funny! Also, she's a native New Yorker, I also found her observations very pertinent and real (for example, many New Yorkers spend time at a desk sitting in a chair, and are surrounded by lots of noise and high energy levels generally - she methodically walks you through how to adjust to each of those norms). I suspect that wherever Marjorie lives and teaches, she is fully engrossed in the patterns and habits of that location. This ability of hers to be "tuned in" and genuine goes a long way in the way she teaches her class. I was delighted to also learn that Marjorie could be a confidant and crucial consult for other health problems in my life. She will always defer to doctors and experts, but Marjorie pointed me towards a rehabilitation specialist and I have been working with for two years, who has also changed my life. Not to mention that several health and mindfulness-related books on my bookshelf are there as a result of Marjorie's recommendation. And most recently, at Marjorie's urging, I completed her reset and re-new course, which helped me to reset my eating habits and tackle my inflammation, and, as she says, "live better in my body" through diet and wellness routines. I am happy to say that I have lost 20 pounds in my inflammation is greatly reduced. And, the whole time I've known her, I've known that she is always available when I may be in crisis with my health. When Marjorie left New York City, a regular of part of my routine did go away. But, Marjorie makes herself available for private sessions via Zoom, and will regularly consult over email. She is an incredible practitioner and anyone lucky enough to should reap the benefits of her wisdom. There are 1 million instructors out there, but they're truly only has one Marjorie. Plus, her dog is adorable!!!!

I've always struggled with my tummy and could never figure out the best solution to lose the weight properly. Carisma was very helpful and professional. She gave me a meal plan and was very patient due to me being a very picky eater. She provided a weekly workout plan and encouraged and inspired me everyday. She is overall a great coach and is very patient. I highly recommend carisma if you want someone who sincerely cares about your well-being and will guide you to your goal.

Martha is an exceptional trainer. I have been with her for about three weeks, working out with her 2 days a week and I can tell a difference in my strength and beginning to show definition. I greatly enjoy the workout sessions. Martha has your best interest at heart and is very encouraging. She expects 100%, but she gives the same and you feel great afterwards and look forward to the next session. I would recommend her to anyone that is interested in their health and the way they want to look, regardless of age. Sandy

    Krista does an outstanding job of "coming alongside" her clients. She takes both a personal and professional interest in what you are trying to achieve and sets goals accordingly. She truly has a heart for people who are striving to overcome their bad habits and make healthy changes in the way they live out their lives in all areas....Spirit, Mind and Body. Krista's many years of work in this field give her a deep knowledge and understanding of the human body and those of us who train with her are the beneficiaries of her experience in working with all different types of people over the course of time. Krista is encouraging, motivating, and inspriring, and she fearlessly leads me in my pursuit of better health and wellness! Our time together always leaves me feeling refreshed and excited about the changes I am making. She has set a new standard for me in what I would expect from a trainer. I feel very blessed to be able to work with her.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a health coach?

    A health coach is a service provider you can hire to help you realize your wellness goals. You can hire a health and wellness coach to guide you through life changes, keep you focused on weight loss or fitness goals, help boost your mental health, and more. Many health coaches work with their clients for set periods of time as the client moves toward a measurable goal. Wellness coaches come from varying backgrounds, and may have different areas of focus depending on their education and training. Research potential coaches by reading their reviews, researching their academic and personal backgrounds, and learning about any certifications they have earned from coaching institutes. Often, health and wellness coaches sell coaching packages ranging from three to six months or longer, depending on the client’s needs. The average national cost for an individual health coach session ranges from $60 to $90, although prices may range as low as $30 or up to $130 or more, depending on your location and the coach.

    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.

    What is a holistic wellness coach?

    When you want to reach new heights with your health and wellness, consider hiring a holistic wellness coach. Much like a health coach, a holistic wellness coach is focused on your well-being and meets with you in one-on-one sessions to help you identify and reach your targeted goals. A holistic wellness coach will typically have you take all components of your life into account when working to achieve your goals. If your goal is to lose weight, a holistic wellness coach will not only offer recommendations for your diet and exercise, but also discuss your emotional health, your work/life balance, your spiritual side, and each area of your life that affects your ability to follow a nutrition and fitness plan.

    Although they are highly motivational and often can help clients achieve great results, holistic wellness coaches are not professional health care providers or registered dietitians. Different institutes and training centers provide certifications for holistic wellness coaching, so be sure to research your coach and read their reviews to understand more about their techniques and training.  

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
