I am so glad I met Nicole. She is extremely compassionate with a wonderfully serene demeanor. She was very interested in finding out what I was looking for, and we chatted for a long time prior to the reiki treatment. I have an auto-immune issue and she was so helpful in suggesting ways to help regain my health. I had never had reiki before and I felt like my body was in complete harmony afterwards. She is a true healer.

I started working out with a Chitown trainer two months ago and it has totally changed my health trajectory! I feel stronger, healthier, more energetic, alert and confident. My trainer is kind and encouraging - but also no-nonsense. She holds me to a high standard of effort, helps correct my form and keeps me on task. Even though the workouts are a challenge, I always feel like my trainer is on my side and sincerely wants to see me reach my goals. Sessions also include insightful talks that help me make better choices and transform old habits. In our sessions my trainer talks me through upcoming challenges and helps me re-frame old ways of thinking. I leave feeling empowered to make healthier choices. Chitown trainers is also. . . Reliable: I can always count on an on-time arrival. Convenient: It is so nice to workout at home! Responsive: Quick replies to emails and questions. Professional: Chitown trainers are inspiring, expert, certified athlete-trainers. If you are looking for motivation, excellent training and improved health, Chitown Trainer is the answer!

I started working one on one with Patrick 3 months ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision! I had previously taken his group fitness classes and always gotten a lot of out them. Working with him one on one has taken it to a new level. He motivates me to do things I would never do on my own. I train with Patrick 3 times a week and every workout is different, challenging, and makes me feel good about myself. I never thought I would look forward to "getting my butt kicked" :) Patrick is also a great nutrition coach. He laid out a plan for me and holds me accountable...just what I needed. We always talk about my progress and ways to improve. Investing in a personal trainer was one of the best investments I ever made. Patrick is highly motivating, personable, knowledgeable, and always brings a positive, fun attitude. I would highly recommend him.

Destination Fitness is the best! This is by far the best money I have ever spent! I wasted so much money on health clubs that I never went to. I tried tapes and classes at various clubs and park districts. I never stuck to any plan until I tried Destination Fitness and Jill's team. Jill was so caring and listened to my story. She helped put together a plan and introduced me to her trainer Marty and her Registered Dietitian Melissa. For the first time everything clicked! They did not make me feel like I had to drop and give them 20 push ups. They created fun exercises for me to follow that I actually enjoyed! Melissa the RD was amazing. She listened to me as well and helped me create a menu plan that I could follow on my busy schedule. It's almost impossible to stick to a diet when your work schedule means you are traveling, but Melissa made it work! If you are considering using an in home trainer, please call Destination Fitness. They gave me hope again and for the first time ever helped me lose weight! Bailey from Johnsburg

Meeting Mike Rundell was the best thing that ever happened to me! He has changed my life in so many ways. He trained me for the better part of three years and in that time he focused on strength training and on nutrition...as many of you may know not a lot of trainers take the time because you are just $$$ but Dr. Mike sincerely cares that you achieve your goal. I started out a plump young lady with close to 30 percent body fat and by the time we were done I was lean and mean at near 18 percent body fat. My experience with Dr. Mike has been top notch...and the things I have learned from him along the way will stay with me forever! He not only transformed my body but my mind as well...happy workouts!!!

I have been training with Grant for over two years since moving to Chicago. Grant is by far the most talented and intelligent trainer I have ever worked with. He personalizes all of our training sessions to fit my specific needs and goals that I have set for myself. Our workouts are constantly developing and nothing that can be copied catted from online. I have dealt with knee and shoulder pain prior to starting out our sessions. Grant took this into account and rather avoiding the issue, helped me build muscle and strength and to heal so that my workouts are the best they can be. Not only is his attention to every work out above par, but his knowledge of nutrition takes his training to another level. He has helped me planned my diet around building my strength and losing weight. Everything is tailored specifically to me. Grant had changed the way I view exercise, fitness, nutrition, and health. He is nothing but professional and hard working. He is not only a fantastic trainer but a great friend.

Ashleigh has provided me with information on how to eat healthier grains, more protein, and less sugar so I can develop better eating habits. I'v noticed since starting the program, that I have more energy, less sugar cravings, and that I'v lost 10 pounds! She has taught me so much about my eating habits and ways I can improve them. I'v been able to educate my mom from the information Ashleigh gave me, so my family's health has also improved drastically. I would definitely recommend Ashleigh as a coach.

Coach Vega is excellent. He is very knowledgeable about the gamę and he makes sure his students have fun while learning about the best way to play baseball. My son always looks forward to his training sessions. Coach Vega stresses the fundamentals and provides expert instruction in pitching, fielding and hitting. He is a great listener, and caters his sessions to our son's needs and interests. He is not only an expert in baseball, but he knows to connect on a personal level. He is a true teacher. Our son has made great improvements as a ball player after working with Coach Vega, and he has enjoyed the gamę more as a result of his working with him.

I met Ro through a mutual friend a few years ago. I have been a triathlete for about five years but, the past two years I have given up running and focused more on cycling and swimming. Between teaching a spin class, swimming 3 miles a week, and biking 80 plus miles a week I noticed I just wasn’t recovering fast enough from all the exercise. I sat down with Ro for a one on one consultation. Ro dissected my entire nutrition habits. She took in account for everything I ate from the time I woke up until the time I went to bed, Monday through Sunday. After her analysis of the results she noticed my carb intake was much higher than my protein intake . She introduced me to some foods I never thought I would ever eat like quinoa and tofu. She took my food list and substituted these items for some of the carbs I could take out of my diet. Thanks to Ro I feel my recovery time has been shortened and I can expedite my recovery time. Ro checks in with me on a monthly basis to make sure I’m still on pace. If it wasn’t for this help from Ro I would still be scratching my head searching the Internet for what I’m doing wrong. I owe her a big thanks. Dan T

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.
