Working with Nicole was an awesome experience, she was a miracle healing person who brought all my tension and pain down to zero with the good energy i could feel in my body.She was extremely helpful and taught me several things i can do myself to help with my issues, she took the time to listen. Very professional and i would describe her like an angel spirit that was in the perfect time of my life to help me. I do recommend her and can wait to go for a next session with her. :)

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.

Wow, where do I start? We all have our own goals and needs when it comes to weight lost, toning, nutrition. Patrick exceeded my expectations. He is attentive, he cares about my goals, easy to communicate with and knowledgeable. Even though we think we know what we need to do to achieve our goals....we may not, and if you do it really helps to have someone help you stay focused and give you guidance. There are many great things I can say about this experience with Patrick but what was important to me was feeling comfortable having a trainer come to my house and being able to reach my goals. Patrick did just that...but you have to work at it. If you do your workouts and listen to his nutritional advice it will work. It is working for me! Another thing that is important to me is I did not want to go to a gym. Takes too much time out of my day and didn't want to pay for a gym membership on top of a personal trainer. I really love working out in my own home and needed a personal trainer more than a club membership. Again...its working!! Patrick is punctual with his arrival and with sending any information he says he's going to send such as my workouts. He's genuine, funny and just a great person. Thanks Patrick!!

Everything about Astera is absolutely wonderful. She is an expert in the space and is very in tune. I feel a sense of calmness and peace the moment I walk into her office, and since I started going to her I have grown immensely on both a personal and spiritual level. I highly, highly, highly recommend Silver Star Reiki to anyone interested in Reiki from all levels of understanding.

I've never been one to go to the gym or workout because I would always start and never see any results. When I started with Andrew I wasn't sure what to expect. But after a month of having him as my personal trainer I always wonder why I haven't started sooner! He always keeps me motivated and makes working out fun! The workouts are personalized to what I can do and he encourages me to push harder and do what I never thought I could do! Long story short, he's awesome and I definitely recommend him to everyone! And on the plus side after a month I was down 8 pounds and 5inches from my waist!🙌🏻🙌🏻😁

Ken met with my husband and me to assess our fitness levels and match us with a personal trainer. He gave us a great first workout and answered all of our questions. He then matched us with Kasia, who is a FABULOUS trainer! We have had ten sessions with her so far and intend to keep going indefinitely. I am a beginner, while my husband is more advanced. Kasia is able to help me focus on form and technique while providing a killer workout for my husband in the same session. Love working with her, and cannot recommend Personal Best enough!

Laura is a natural relationship and life coach: intuitive, insightful, supportive, positive, human. She asks us pertinent questions that we don't see for ourselves. My partner and I have been doing coaching with Laura with a focus on how we communicate with one another, trust, staying in the present, keeping an eye on our pasts so we do not unconsciously let the past have too much influence on how we do our present. I recommend her interventions without hesitation.

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 am 61 yrs. old. I recently lost 15 lbs. and needed to firm up a bit. I wanted a trainer to come to me for the convenience and since my building has a gym. Mike has worked with me for about 4 weeks and I am seeing my body taking shape. Mike is very attentive and easy to work with. He returns messages promptly. He listens to what I would like to achieve. The work outs are well felt, but not so hard I feel like I'm doing boot camp. He provides nutritional support as well. He is always on time for my workouts. He is very patient. I highly recommend Mike as a personal trainer. Lori S.

Loren Michaels Harris spoke at our high school's Operation Snowball weekend, a lock-in focused on drug prevention, leadership, and team building attended by 80 students. He is such a kind person and passionate, engaging speaker. He spoke about overcoming obstacles, keeping a positive mindset, and how our every action sends a ripple effect into the world. Several of our participants were emotionally moved by his inspiring story and came up to talk with him afterward, where he took time to have personal conversations and give encouragement. His message was powerful, uplifting, and exactly what our audience needed to hear. Thank you, Loren, for an unforgettable experience!

What I like about Aiga Jekabsone is that she knows how to motivate me, she makes each of my training sessions challenging but rewarding. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals.

"LIFE CHANGING!" That is what I call my experience as a client of Ashleigh Tepler. Truthfully I do not recognize myself. I am an entirely new person, particularly around and about food. My current thought process, choices, and feelings have changed since Ashleigh began coaching me. I call her my "Life" coach​ because the changes she has taught me to make with food, movement and thought have been life changing​! As a coach, Ashleigh came to me at a time when I was both willing and ready, but NOT able to take the necessary actions that would introduce a consistent healthy lifestyle ​into my daily living. On my own I could only manage short periods of time (2 weeks at most) when i would both eat healthy and exercise, but together she as managed to encourage, teach, and inspire me to change​ every day for the past 3 months. As a coach she is knowledgeable, kind, patient, and truly amazing! There are a few things in life I can not be sure of, but positive results from hard work is not one of them - Ashleigh is a hard worker and she will make you one too. I am so grateful I asked her for help and I enthusiastically recommend you to use her services!! The New & Happy Joanne

From the moment I met Alex , I knew he was a person that could help me achieve new goals and also the one that would help change my life for the better. I started training with Alex last April. During the last 6 months I have been challenged and pushed by Alex, and he has taught me a great deal. He makes working out fun and inspires me to reach new goals. I have been very impressed by Alex's passion to help clients, his knowledge, and his ability to connect with his clients. Alex is very caring and attentive to what each client needs, what their limits are, and how far he can push them. He encourages and motivates me to do better, and yet he knows how much I am capable of. He deserves 5 out of 5 stars from me. I plan to continue to work with Alex.

My son has been training with Gil for 4 years. Gil has been instrumental in my sons development...not only his baseball skills, but also his confidence and approach to the game. Gil's training was instrumental in my son making the NCHS team. Gil is by far the best baseball instructor we have worked with. Not only he is extremely knowledgeable about all aspect of the game, but he brings and enthusiasm and excitement to his training that set him apart. He brings new and interesting drills to every session. He brings a positive attitude every time and he is always providing his students with a lift and boost to their confidence. His enthusiasm for baseball (and more importantly his enthusiasm for coaching & developing players) in unmatched. I recommend Gil highly!

Earlier this year I contacted Linda to discuss my need to improve my strength and overall fitness. By babying my bad knees for years I was in a position where my legs were very weak, I was overweight and my overall muscle tone was poor. Linda mapped out a nutrition plan and starting training me right away. I expected myself to fail since I had not exercised in 35 years! With Linda’s thoughtful and careful guidance I was able to gain confidence and ability each week. Within the first 6 weeks I was walking noticeably better and didn’t rely on Aleve to get me thru the day! For me thats amazing on its own! I can again walk up stairs two at a time, even with my bad knees! (Both are overdue for replacement!) Linda works with you to gain strength and balance and she teaches you on how to perfect your form, which is so important in exercise! Linda is an amazing personal trainer who is truly invested in helping you attain your fitness goals. We are currently working on an intensive “pre-hab” for my upcoming knee replacement. My orthopedic surgeon is totally impressed with my physical conditioning and weight loss achievements so far. He believes that it’s the best thing I could do to insure that my upcoming surgery is successful! My advise... don’t procrastinate any further, contact Linda Steel Training & Fitness and get moving on a better you!

Anthony Vertino is an excellent, insightful, professional therapist. He has recently evolved his practice into a new, exciting level of therapy/coaching. He'll take a serious, committed patient and through a different approach which emphasizes outcomes as opposed to traditional treatments which can take long, long months to possibly work, Vertino uses this positive, results-oriented formula to help your relationships blossom as well as every aspect of one's life conquer indifference and mediocrity. Highly recommend him and trust him. : )

I had always been a fit person who ran, biked, lifted weights and in general stayed healthy and active. After the birth of my 3rd child I found myself with less time than ever running a family and my own small business and the baby weight was just not coming off in the minimal time I had to devote to my fitness in the chaos of life. I hired Jeanne Penton to help me get 3 hours of workout out of an hour of time and found out how much I did not know about training. Jeanne was supportive, encouraging, compassionate, and firm when I needed it. Her coaching led me to achieve my goals and continue to learn even more to help me live the most balanced and centered life possible, in spite of the chaos of life. I truly do not know where I would be had she not come into my life at just the right time. She has helped me to stay present, mindful, and appreciative even when things are not right… which is always, let’s get real. 8 years later I still consider her a leader among the few people who have had the most positive influence in my life. Jeanne has a way of reaching individuals and tailoring solutions for real life. Her intuitive understanding of people and great knowledge of Wellness principles can benefit anyone in any age or stage of life. I have taken her classes, benefited from hearing her speak, and grown from the wisdom she has shared in a variety of areas. She is so much more than a trainer, she is a true Life Coach in every sense of the word. I could not recommend her more highly. Thank you Jeanne, for being who you are and sharing your skills and compassion with me.

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.

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.

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.  

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
