I highly recommend Chitown Trainer whose owner is Konrad Koczwara. My personal trainer is Alonza Thornton who has been highly skilled in quickly defining sets of exercises that work well for my goals. He has also done an excellent job in listening to my feedback in order to fine tune my exercises to maximize results. He pays a lot of attention to your exercise form to ensure that the appropriate set of muscles are used; this is a skill that all personal trainers do not possess. I highly recommend Alonza Thornton.

ve been working with Patrick now for the last 7 months and it has been one of the best decisions of my life!! I have struggled with my weight my whole life - like since the 3rd grade. I had gotten to the point that nothing else had worked and I thought that it was either this or I was going to have to finally accept that I was never going to have the kind of life and body I wanted. Patrick changed all of that! He constantly encourages me and has helped me change the way I look at food and exercise and made me realize that this is a journey, and not a quick fix. He holds me accountable in a good way and pushes me when I would wimp out and just quit. He focuses not only on exercise but also nutrition and habits that will make me successful. And one night when I was whining that I didn't know what I was going to make for dinner because I didn't have anything healthy to eat - he walked right into my kitchen and made me dinner and proved me wrong! If you are considering personal training, you couldn't chose a more dedicated partner to be on this journey with you. He is truly committed to your success!!

This is my first experience with a personal trainer. I can’t say enough about Andrew and his knowledge. He works with me, not the other way around. I look forward to going, therefore, it has kept me real to my goals! It is so much easier than having to figure out what works best for me all on my own. Andrew is very understanding and compassionate. I am so glad Andrew, and 360FIT are right here in Schererville!

Ken is a fantastic trainer as well as an all around wonderful person. I've seen great results from his personal training. Also, when I had an injury he was able to pinpoint the problem immediately, advise me with stretches and exercises, and helped work out the kinks. I strongly recommend Ken to anyone looking for a great personal trainer!

Laura is extremely smart, gifted and talented. From the moment we met, I could tell she was that rare individual, who has that special quality and talent to bring out the best in people. She has a keen perception of people and situations. An award winning journalist, writer, and collaborator, Laua is a professional coach who spent 15 years in Paris inspiring French professionals to overcome their personal and professional challenges, removing blocks toward reaching for the best in themselves. Finding a coach as qualified as Laura with her breadth of experience and personal charisma is impossible. I highly recommend her.

Elijah and Physical Peak is amazing! He has been my personal trainer for coming on three years now and I am very happy with the results he's helped me achieve. I have always had an aversion to working out, but since starting with him, it's become fun and rewarding. He makes sure to change up the routines to make sure every session is new and difficult, while making sure to cater to any limitations you have. If you work out with him, you won't be disappointed!

Chaun has been training me for over one month and I can say that I am loving the results. I have become stronger, toned and have lost a good percentage of body fat. Chaun is a great personal trainer. The workouts are great and is never a routine. Chaun is also great on giving me advise on what foods to eat to help me reach my goals faster.

Josh is great to work with for your fitness needs. My husband and I hired him for at home personal training. He uses customized exercises to help my husband and I reach our fitness goals. Additionally, he has a great positive energy that helps us get in the right mindset. His educational background is a plus as he can tell you the "why" behind your needs and exercises which I greatly appreciate. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a personal trainer.

I contacted Jill about hiring an in home personal trainer for my 75 year old mother after she had achilles surgery and was done with physical therapy but still unable to function comfortably in everyday life. My mom has been training with Nicki for a few months (she told me in the beginning she was just going to do "a few sessions") and has improved wonderfully. My mother likes to say she "gave up a cruise" to train with Nicki, but she insists it is totally worth it! My mother is not an easy one to please, and was a hard sell for training in the first place. Kudos to Nicki for winning her over and making a difference!

I found Chris' post through Craigslist and decided to try it out. I'm a student and drive from Naperville. I thought hey- 2x/wk for an hour is totally doable with my schedule. PLUS he was having a promo! When I met Chris he was totally laid back which I respond better too. I've never had a personal trainer before, but I really enjoyed my sessions with him!

Nick is one of the few personal trainers I worked with who is focused on his clients health goals. He has excellent knowledge on different excercises and variations in them to tackle each and every muscle of a body. Added to that is his knowledge on nutritions which helped me to achieve my health goals in a better and healthier way. He strongly recommended me to mix cardio work outs on the days when I won't see him. This suggestion worked out very well for me. I strongly recommend Nick.

Once in a while you meet someone who is able to inspire you the way Alex does! I started training with Alex having no experience with fitness/working out...my first day, I joked saying "I want to lose 50 pounds" I didn't believe it would ever happen (I've always been the chubby girl) Alex taught me all about what I could do, taught me the things I need to be eating, and what limits I could push myself to! In 9 months I lost 50 pounds! He was my coach, my therapist, my champion when I was down! In many ways my best friend! He pushed me, never let me give up! To this day I know I can call him anytime and he will be there for me! He has seen me through my toughest times! So yes sometimes you meet someone who is a game changer, that's Alex!

I don't know where to begin... Ashley helped me plan out my entire career path from my first year of college all the way to the day I received the offer letter from the employer. She doesn't only help you establish your career path she helps you rationally breakdown all the milestones you'll need to hit in order to accomplish your personal career goals. All in all, I owe many thanks to Ashley for my career growth. Without her expertise and advice I would not be in the position I am in today.

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.

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.

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.   

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.  

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.
