Over the 3 years I trained with Lindsey my overall fitness increased tremendously. Lindsey is a great motivator and will have you doing exercises at a level you never thought possible. She does so without intimidation and with positive feedback. She was always on time and prepared with a tremendous workout. Lindsey takes great pride in what she does and goes above and beyond to meet each clients need including specific medical needs. I would strongly recommend Lindsey as your personal trainer and coach....she is an all around good person with a lot of knowledge to share!

I heard Kim in a seminar and joined her Back to Basics program soon after. From there she became my life coach. Kim has helped me in getting in touch with myself, accept who I am and make my quirks work. As a coach, she is not shy about calling you out on your defaults. Her program is designed to help achieve the success one deserves and her team provides a great support system while guiding, navigating, and blazing a path to actualize one's dream; personal or professional. She is just that.. Success Genie!

​So February 9th, I weighed-in at a doctor’s appointment to the tune or 298 lbs. In my mind all I could think was I am a cheeseburger away from 300 lbs. In my battle with weight, I vowed that I would never weigh over 300 lbs. So this day was an eye opener for me. That day I was determined that I need to make a difference in my life. So I started changing my eating habits and started looking for a gym.. So I decided to get a personal trainer/coach. A gentlemen stated that he knew the perfect person to pair me up with. As I was leaving he pointed out Mr. Dimitrius Drye. In the mind I said, “Oh Hell No!!!” Mr. Drye was in training mode with a client and what she was doing was unbelievable. Something I knew I wouldn’t and couldn’t do. He looked up at me and said, “You’re going to be doing these too!” I told him I didn’t like him already. Saturday, February 27th was my initial assessment with Mr. Drye. I thought he was the trainer from hell. Once I made it through the assessment, I knew I could do anything. He gave me a meal plan that I thought was absurd. At the end of my 3 months of 1:1 coaching with Mr. Drye and adhering to his meal plan, I weighed 266 lbs with a loss of 29. After I saw this change, I signed up again with Mr. Drye and to this day I have lost a total of 65 lbs bringing me to a weight of 225 lbs in 7 months ..Never in a million years did I think I could be where I am now especially after numerous failed attempts. The best decision I ever made was working with Mr. Drye. He is an AMAZING coach. He pushes you to work harder even when you think your body can’t do it nor will he let you quit. He encourages you and explains what area of the body and what muscle each exercise works. Mr. Drye knows exactly what exercises to have you do to get the desired body shape you are looking for. For me I needed someone who was going to be relentless and be a drill sergeant. I found that in him. In this journey, I learned that this has been more mental than physical. Why? My body can do anything, but my mind didn’t think so. I had to make up in my mind that I had no choice. It was either do or die for me. Mr. Drye made this experience enjoyable and not dreadful. In fact, because of him I can now say I love working out and I look forward to reaching my goal. Thank you, Mr. Dimitrius Drye, for helping me to change my life one day, one weight, and one exercise at a time. Sincerely, Ms. Tamisha P. Tyson

Lilia was so kind to speak with me on video chat for an initial consultation. She kindly and attentively listened to my concerns, and recognized areas in which I wanted to improve without me having to let her know directly. This showed me she was truly listening. Lilia's appraoch was geared toward my overall well being and my need for happiness in life, and understanding where I need to begin by recognizing where my habits came from. She let me know my goals are realistic and attainable and that I deserve what I want in life, and with adjusting my cognitive lifestyle I can achieve the life I dream of. I look forward working with Lilia. She has a kind, intellectual soul, and I greatly appreciate the time she spent speaking with me reasuring me of my concerns. Best, Nadine

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a career coach?

    If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

    • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
    • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
    • Defining your career goals
    • Creating a plan for job searching
    • Improving networking strategies and skills
    • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
    • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
    • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

    Why is career counseling important?

    Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

    • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
    • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
    • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
    • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
    • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
    • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
    • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

    What is a career counselor?

    If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

    Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

    How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

    When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

    How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

    A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
