"**Currently Accepting New Great Fit Clients** Please view my website link in my profile to learn exactly what my work with my clients is like. You can find my contact info there. I'm looking for committed clients that want to reach their goals. They've tried it on their own, but haven't had success. They know that getting support and accountability is the missing key ingredient to their success. If this is you, please continue reading and reach out for an open & honest conversation about your current situation and what we will need to do to overcome the obstacles and get great results together. ***I’m very responsive and you’ll likely catch me responding to your initial message within 10-15 mins. The most important goal I have when working with my clients is getting them to reach your goals in a long-term sustainable approach. There are No -Fad diets, -Hand-off meal plans, -Pills or Supplements, -Wonky exercise programs, -Subscriptions based offerings, or -Lack of support/accountability here. Through the last 18 years, I've gained invaluable experience working alongside clients everyday helping them understand how to balance exercise, nutrition, and well-being in normal everyday life. I have a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science/Nutrition. Have over 15 different certifications, owned 2 gyms for 6 years and have been studying health, fitness, nutrition, since 1998. My Program Approach: I use what I call the SANE approach. *Support -Phone Call, Text messaging, Coaching Tools - Over 40 Videos/ 25 custom PDFs *Accountability -Setting Commitments and helping you Implement them and the information into your life. *Nutrition -A personalized science-backed approach for your lifestyle. *Exercise -A personalized science-backed approach for your lifestyle. Through this personalized one-on-one approach, we are able to help you gain the knowledge, tools and implement strategies setting you up for lasting success. Regardless if we live in the same city or across the country, there can be video conferencing to create a more "in-person" experience for you. Communication is by far the most valued part of my service I offer. If you have a question, I have an answer that suits your individual situation. An Important Note, I can't work with everyone and after helping people improve their health for many years I am looking to create win-win situations. I want you to get to your goals and enjoy the experience of our work together. Who my coaching and programs are not for... -Those who need to "think about it longer". -Those who aren't willing to do the necessary work to reach their goal no matter what they would be. -Those who can't decide for themselves to get the necessary help they need. -Those who don't invest time, energy, and money in themselves. I've noticed a pattern in my best clients who reach their goals. They show up in 3 different ways. Do these sound like you? 1. Coachable - ready to listen and implement our program together. 2. Committed/Decisive - The time is now and they are ready to take action. They don't need to think about moving forward to improve themselves any longer. 3. Resourceful - They are willing to make the time, effort, and energy to get great results despite what's happening in their busy life. If these characteristics sound like you then let's get on a 15 min call to learn more about your situation and discuss what working together would look like. I live my passion helping people every day reach their health goals. Looking forward to talking with you! Coach Brian PS - Please, review my Thumbtack profile and reviews along with my Facebook profile to learn more about who I am and how I work with my clients."

"Lifelong Lifestyles was founded by Diarmuid Horan. Diarmuid was an elite athlete in Ireland, playing a sport called Hurling (the official "Fastest field game on the planet") for his native county, Offaly. The catch? Hurling is 100% amateur. So, in 2014, with his BSc. in Athletic Training and MSc. in Nutrition, Diarmuid moved to the United States to help teach people HOW to make permanent changes in health-related behaviors. You’ll find his approach to be highly effective in helping you succeed in changing your lifestyle! His coaching method is drawn from the work of Joshua C. Klapow, Ph.D. and Sheri D. Pruitt, Ph.D., whose coaching program is practical, efficient, and steeped in evidence-based science proven over decades of research. As you work with Diarmuid, you will learn exactly what you need to change, you will begin to feel energized to take action, and become skilful in accomplishing the necessary changes. In what areas can Diarmuid help you to make a lifelong change? Lifestyle / Health and Wellness Coaching: With this service, you will develop a positive mindset and learn how to beat negative thinking to remain motivated. You will explore what areas of your lifestyle or health you really want to change. After each session, you will leave with a plan, be confident, and know exactly HOW you will execute it. People who use this service generate the know-how to create sustainable healthy lifestyles, prevent or treat disease, and foster greater well-being. Nutrition Coaching: With Nutrition coaching the focus shifts the spotlight to your eating habits. You will receive clear nutrition direction from the get-go. Using specific eating guidelines you will learn how to master what you eat - you will develop the essential skills necessary to be successful for the rest of your life. You'll set clear objectives and measures of success from the very start. By the end, you’ll be an expert in eating well at home, parties, and while travelling. Imagine how much different your life, health, body, and eating habits be different if you knew exactly what to do, had the motivation to do it, and learned HOW to make the changes stick, for the rest of your life. This is where Diarmuid will bring you. Exercise Coaching: Exercise coaching will effectively take what and how much you do to a new level. Your regime, created using the best scientific evidence available, is specific to outcomes you want (leaner, more muscle, less fat, better endurance, competition). You will learn how to use cardio and resistance training smartly. Goals are set to stretch you (not too little, not too much) to help build confidence and to increase success. Everything you do not need to know will be left out. In the end, you’ll know exactly what to do and exactly HOW to do it, repeatedly! Stress Management Coaching: Stress can be managed!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
