Absolutely exceptional in every single way. Elin is without a doubt one of the most positive and supportive coaches. He listened closely to my goals and selected the perfect trainer for me. Trainer Alek is an amazing person who customized a program for me that is challenging, but not overwhelming. Working with Alek is very motivating and he pushes me to work harder to reach my goal in a very subtle way, so that a hard workout still is enjoyable and fun. Every week he emails me a workout summary and an overview of where I’m currently standing in my training. Elin is also tracking my progress and he reaches out every week to check up and see if everything is working out to my satisfaction. Elin and his team are professionals who truly enjoy helping people like me reach their goals. Customer satisfaction is highly regarded and they work with you to accommodate your schedule and budget. I have worked with different trainers and studios in the past, but Elin and his team are taking personal training to a whole new level.

Me and my husband have been working with Agnese for about 1-2 months and she's been really great! She's flexible, very knowledgable (not just about fitness but also about general health/nutrition issues) and, more importantly, is very enthusiastic about her job and likes to mix things up so that it's fun to work out! Me and my husband both hate the gym and got a trainer to help "force" us to work out - and now I can't go a week without working out!

Gurav is the best yoga instructor I've ever had. He provides healthy nutrition advise along with the awesome yoga techniques -he is such a competent professional yet easy to work with human being. His teaching has helped me recover faster from a myriad of health issues I was experiencing. Give him a call, he will work with you around any busy schedule. He is worth his weight in pure gold! Thank you Guray!

Working with JR was a great experience, both for my physical health and my mental health. One of the first things he asked me was if I was willing to work hard during the workouts, so I knew right away that he takes what he does seriously. He listened to my goals and habits first, then based on that, he talked to me about eating plans that fit me. He even asks his clients to text him if they have questions, and that's really helpful for someone like me who struggles with the eating part of fitness (so he's received some texts of questionable cereal choices from me). And even though he's training all day, he still replies quickly. I lost 20 pounds and have been able to keep it off. I didn't even think it was possible for my body to look the way it did - it was better than when I was at my thinnest. The workouts are serious, JR will push you, but I'm grateful that he's so personable. I've been around other trainers who are really tough with you and kind of make you feel like you don't belong in the gym. That kind of training doesn't work for me, I would just get discouraged. I need someone who was going to tell me what to do, push me if they know I can do better, and then trust me to do that. That's how it was for me working with JR. I appreciate how flexible he is, he'll actually reach out and encourage you to come to classes, or if a session started late, let you schedule an extra one at no additional charge. I definitely recommend JR and I'm grateful for how much he influenced my overall WELLNESS. After working with him, my stress went down and it helped my self-esteem. His packages and the value you receive are worth it if you're ready to work!

I haven't begun working with Kelly yet, but I did speak with her for a little while on the phone. My impression is that she is not only legitimate, but also very professional, sincere, client-centered. I'm looking forward to working with her to overcome some personal challenges, build a successful coaching business, and broaden the horizons of my spirituality.

I had an opportunity to have Mr. Brennan from Verho Communications to coach me on my Humorous Speech Contest (final round with Toastmaster International) and also SpeakEasy DC performance. He was spot on for the areas where I could use more humor and where I could twist how the humor was delivered to be more effective. The result: I was the champion of the humorous speech contest in the final round, thanks to Mr. Brennan's coaching and mentoring. Many thanks!

D.Cook is a consummate professional. He is personable and knows his stuff. While he's training you, he dropping nuggets of health and wellness tips along the way. Sometimes, he will make you angry and you want to fuss him out. But it's all for your betterment. He's pushing you past your comfort zone. Most importantly, he helps you get out of your own way. Very flexible on scheduling sessions. Very responsive. I highly recommend his services.

I've had the pleasure of training with Angela for a couple of months. She is nothing short of an amazing, attentive trainer. She inquired about health concerns and came up with creative workouts to cater around any of those concerns. She is very patient on days that you might not be feeling 100% and gives helpful feedback to encourage you to achieve the goals you've set for yourself. Furthermore, Angela has a warm, positive demeanor which makes for an even better workout experience. I am confident that anyone who is serious about working out will be more than satisfied to have Angela on their team.

Ray has been wonderful to work with, he pushes me past my limits and always remains calm and professional. He watches my nutrition to make sure I’m eating what I need to build muscle and burn calories. In the 4 months I’ve worked him he has transformed my 39 year old body into better shape than my 25 year old body. I’ve never got so many compliments on my butt and my clothes fit better than ever. If you’re going to trust anyone to get your health on tract and transform your body into something strong and sexy, Ray is the guy to hire.

I have worked with a few trainers before and they were all pretty much the same. Nick was the first trainer I felt really cared about my health and my fitness goals. He was always willing to chat after our sessions and answer all my questions even though the time was up. Hes really knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition and definitely got me the results I was looking for. Thanks Nick! Recommend him highly!

Nicole is amazing. Her credentials say she is a certified fitness trainer and yoga instructor, and she is every bit of that. She is a master of her crafts. But she is way more. She is a coach, confidant, motivator, and most of all, a gifted healer. As a physician, I know a healer when I encounter one. I feel so blessed to have invited Nicole to help me with my journey. After just a few weeks of being tortured by Nicole (nobody says health and fitness are easy) I am in my best shape in years. If I learn some of her amazing communication and motivational skills, she may make me a better doctor as well.

I've been training with Nate several times a week for over 5 years, and I couldn't be more pleased with my progress, fitness level (strength, duration, flexibility), and the ongoing challenge and diversity of workouts -- they're never boring and incorporate strength, stability and core, time under tension, and functional training for every part of my body. In addition, Nate's a nice guy with a great sense of humor, so the workouts are tough but enjoyable. After his initial assessment, he continued to take the time to get know me individually and has a vested interest in my health, well being, strengths, and weaknesses (he enjoys identifying and having me work on my weaknesses!). Nate works hard with each of his clients and he customizes each workout for their individual needs and goals. In the 5+ years I've trained with him, Nate has never been late or missed a workout -- even in snowstorms! When I need to change a training appointment, Nate works very hard to find a time that is mutually beneficial. Finding the right personal trainer that had the proper knowledge, experience, equipment, interpersonal skills, and motivation to align with mine was tough; and I couldn't be happier to have found Nate. My investment in training with him has been more than worth it: I'm in great physical shape, my doctor asks if I've found the fountain of youth, and I've made a good friend in the process.

Barb has made it possible for my life to be different in all of the best ways! I found myself waking up everyday and having a normal attitude of discouragement, sadness and depression. It was effecting my life and family in every way. I'm twenty five years old with Lord willing a long life ahead of me and I wanted to make a big and positive change! I was feeling very desperate for help and randomly decided to send out a message on Thumbtack, not really expecting a response quickly or at all. Within the hour I heard from Barb! She instantly made my heart happy and she is the only one who ever responded to me! I loved her system and the way she works with her clients from day one! It felt right to work with her so I did. I'm a stay at home mom who does not have time to go to the gym everyday. Barb makes it possible for this to be realistic for you and your lifestyle. Every body is different and unique. She works with every person individually to make sure that they get the proper nutrition plan for their body as well as letting you know how active you should be. I love how personnel and open I can be with her without any judgment. I'm able to text or email her at any time of day with any question and she always gets back to me very quickly. The reason Barb works well for me is because with my busy life as a wife and mom, I have someone that can be a constant reminder and encouragement to me of why I'm doing this and why I CAN do it. She reminds me that I'm doing a great job but also will give me a gentle reminder if I seem to be slacking on something. So thankful for her and for all that she has done for me so far! I've lost 26lbs and I'm going to keep going! And thankfully, Barb is not only helping me lose weight and get to my goal, but is educating me on how the body works so that I may continue to maintain my health for the rest of my life as well as helping my loved ones. I couldn't have done this without her support and encouragement. I definitely would recommend Barb's Fit For Life to everyone. Even if you're pretty healthy already. I think everyone should know what their individual body needs are and should get some health advice at least once in their lifetime. You won't be sorry!

Mr. Tsakounis (Thom) is a skilled and caring therapist. We came to "A Quiet Journey Counseling " center for couples counseling. My husband was very reluctant at first, but quickly found Thom to be a supportive and understanding ally. Feeling like Thom "got " him, and us, allowed our work with Thom to progress quickly. As a mental health therapist myself, I have very high expectations for fellow counselors. Thom met or exceeded my expectations! He is well versed in a number of holistic, cognitive behavioral and Gestalt modalities, and a genuinely caring human being. While my husband and I have more work to do, Thom has supported us and given us new tools to communicate more effectively in our relationship. I reccommend Mr. Tsakounis whole-heartedly!

    I am so thankful to have found coach David. He has truly helped me find a path to better health and happiness. Overall I'm feeling so much better about myself both on the inside and the outside. This personal freedom that I have found from working with him resonates throughout all areas of my life, and would not have happened without David's patience, compassion, experience, positive energy, constant support, kindness and commitment he shows to his clients. The physical and emotional benefits I have gained are everything and I absolutely recommend working with him! He is amazing. Everybody needs a health coach like David!

    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.

    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.

    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.  

    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.
