I was never sure that a personal trainer would be right for me. They can be intimidating and I wasn't crazy about intimidating gym equipment and costly gym memberships. But 360 Fit and Andrew have been a life changer for me!! Very very reasonably priced. And He knows the right dose of challenge based on individual fitness level and keeps it so I want to come back!! I look forward to my workouts!!! As a mom of an almost 3 year old and a 4 year old it had been years since I'd worked out and I wanted my health back but I just couldn't get motivated. After one workout with Andrew I felt super challenged but not defeated. And I had felt amazing results in just the first month. I am 3 months in now and have never felt stronger in my life even with past workout plans. I love the way workouts are structured and the fact that he keeps it fun with lots of variety. 350 Fit has definitely changed me for the best!!

In working with Julie, I learned so much about myself and how to move forward in my business. I learned about my self-imposed road-blocks and how to move through them. Julie is brilliantly supportive and throrough. She can really coach anyone from any kind of business. I have recommended her to friends and they are so grateful as well.

Rosalyn is the epitome of what you need and want in a coach. She is compassionate, thoughtful and God centered. She allows you to arrive at the conclusions that are already inside of you that have been previously dormant and untapped! It was a pleasure working with her and I have referred family members and friends and will use her again!! Thank you so much for who you are and what you do for others!!

Hi! Min. Michael Muhammad over 20 years ago helped transform my life through the teaching of the most Ho. Elijha Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan. He taught a character development class. I remember sitting in his class crying as he spoke with conviction and touch that made a heart to heart connection. As a college graduate I would say that I had never attended a class that provided a chomprehensive knowledge of self development. Anyone reading testimony, if you're familiar with the seven habits of highly effective people by Steven Covey. The seven habits are truly transformational. Min Michael and the principlals he teaches transforms lives. Many people spend money of things, Min. Michael Muhammad invest in building human potential. He inspired me and has left a forever impression of what leadership should reflect. Thank you Bro. Min. Michael.

    Conni was absolutely amazing! Her Theta healing opened so many doors for me. After the session, so many "blockages" in my life seemed to clear away effortlessly. I felt so aligned with my inner-being and content moving in directions that would have normally left me fearful. Besides her wonderful ability to heal, her personality is equally as beautiful.

    When I decided I needed a coach to assist with some decisions I needed to make, I began my search online. The sheer number and different types of coaches was totally overwhelming. But, little did I know that the perfect coach for me was right under my nose! Several months before, I had been introduced to Cassandra through a mutual friend because I was interested in the coaching profession for myself. We had several brief conversations about her training and about the business of coaching. Even in those early discussions, I found Cassandra to be warm, articulate, professional, considerate, and quick-witted with quite a sense of humor. Suddenly, I thought…Cassandra would make a great coach…for me! And I was right! She is not only a great listener but one of her most fabulous attributes is that she is able to “synthesize” my ramblings and feed them back to me in a marvelously cohesive statement that sums up what I said and much of what I felt – but hadn’t said! So, over the past 13 years, I have maintained Cassandra as my “go to” coach, and I have never been disappointed in the outcome of our collaboration. I have never felt judged, or wrong, or stupid in any situation that I have shared with her. Cassandra is the most non-judgmental person I have ever met. She is phenomenal in the way she supports me in whatever I am trying to achieve…and it’s ALWAYS about ME! If she has an opinion about something, she sets that aside and places the focus on what I want for my life. Her questions are so skillful that they encourage me to think in new and different ways and it inspires me to pull from deep within myself to come up with new ideas and approaches to my situation. In other words, Cassandra’s coaching is not about proving that she has the answers, but rather she is all about empowering her clients to gain clarity, recognize their own truth, and affirm their gifts. Yes, it is evident that Cassandra is highly trained and certified; but her value as a coach goes over and above what can be taught in a classroom. She is a person of integrity with a genuine desire and commitment to helping her clients achieve the highest level of personal satisfaction and professional success in their lives. I recommend Cassandra without reservation!

    While working with a life coach, you can expect to confront issues that have been holding you back and preventing you from creating a reality you love to be in. As uncomfortable as confrontation can be, it’s often necessary for healing. Recognizing your issues, strengths, and weaknesses is a first step to wholeness and can provide invaluable guidance while on the path to living the life of your dreams. I have been a client of Mija's for over a year now and I can say that those uncomfortable situations have allowed me to stop seeing myself as the victim. Her guidance and motivation has given me the strength to change my life for the better. The change can be seen by me and those around me. The investment in me was the best thing I did for myself.

    Jimmy is the man. He's one of the best Strength and Conditioning coaches I've ever worked with. He put 90+ pounds on all of my majors lifts and added 9 inches to my vertical in one off season. He's knowledgeable and personable and will help reach whatever goals you set in fitness and nutrition. I highly recommend him.

    Darick is extremely knowledgeable and tailors the work out to what suits you the best. His understanding of anatomy ensures that you train your weaker areas in parallel without causing any discomfort (I am an older individual). I have never looked or felt better because of Darrick's tutelage.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a life coach?

    A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

    Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

    How much does a life coach cost?

    A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

    Why get a life coach?

    People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.
