When I was searching for a personal trainer in my area I discovered Craig. I am pleased to say that after just a few days working with him he showed me his dedication and thrive to be my personal trainer. I’ve noticed immediate results and he is very good about challenging you to beat your current best records. After three months, I noticed upper body strength for the first time in my life (I have never been able to do push ups before now). And his attention to my formerly fractured arm he helped get me past it (I now have range of motion I haven’t had in years). He checks up on you after doctor’s appointments to find out their advice so that he can change your workout to be safe accordingly. He listens to you when you tell him something doesn’t feel right, hurts, or is stressing; and he changes the game plan while still achieving the end goal. He is a hard working trainer that knows how to push you hard, but not over the edge. Incredible, trainer, coach, and human being. He has three characteristics that make him the best personal trainer. They are knowledge, attitude and character. Regarding Knowledge: Craig takes the time to assess your strengths and weaknesses. He’s an expert in how the body works, so the exercises he has me do always make sense for my goals. We’re always doing something different. You will see results and you won’t be disappointed. But the awesome part is he keeps you motivated. He believes in you when you don’t think you can and he let’s you know it. He handles everything you throw at him with incredible grace and optimism. ( I know because I’ve thrown it all, from injured shoulder, knee, foot, abdomen, and pulled muscles). He just doesn’t give up on you. And his optimistic daily notes help keep you focused on the goal. Craig’s attitude and energy are similarly fantastic. It’s contagious. He has a motivating effect which is exactly what you want in a trainer. Craig also knows the right things to say to keep you moving and trying your hardest. It is positive reinforcement at its best. The result is a workout with a far higher out put than you could get on your own. Craig inside (character) is a solid as his outside. He believes that each of us have limitless potential. This too is motivating, and up-lifting. It makes for great coaching. Contrast that to some trainers/coaches/managers, etc. Who try to motivate by breaking you down. Craig is the opposite of that. Bonus: Craig keeps in regular contact between sessions with texts/emails or phone calls to keep you motivated and on track. He is constantly reminding me to combine my diet with my workout. As he says, you cannot out exercise a bad diet. And he genuinely tries to follow up and make sure you are making good choices at meal times. Finally, If you are looking to invest in your good health, look no further than Craig. I’ve never exercised harder, but he makes each workout unique. Not only is he a great trainer, he’s an even better person. I’m PROUD to say, I’ve lost 30 pounds with Craig’s professional training and compassionate support and I live a much healthier life style. Thank You Craig, Nadine Colley

I gained a bit of weight during my marriage and upon separating from my spouse I needed a kick start and so I looked up fitness coaches in New Orleans. These guys were the second company I worked with and with whom I still train and plan my nutrition. My confidence and self esteem are sky high and given the value I receive in life coaching and fitness I see myself working with them for life.

    Kristen is currently coaching and training me into a healthier lifestyle. She helps me with meal plans and encourages me to push harder through workouts everyday! Every time I feel like I can't do it anymore and I'm too tired, she pushes me even harder. She keeps me on my toes, that's for sure! I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with Kristen in 2017! I can't wait to take my life back and just be myself again. Thank you for being there for me Kristen.

    Big Guys Training is a great asset to anyone looking for personal training. Coach England brings years of coaching experience to each session where he will help guide you with a plan designed specifically for you. He brings positive energy during each session and pushes you to want to become better. Coach England has trained me for the past year and I firmly believe he is the best in the United States. I have seen major gains in all of my lifts throughout the year as well as become more explosive, and faster.

      Through the guidance of my coach and her unwaivering support, I have changed my life. I am healthier and happier. And most significantly, I feel powerful. I am in control of my health. In five months, I lost 50 pounds. And, most importantly, it is going to stay off because my coach provided me the tools to be successful.

      I help people with weight loss, gaining energy, and I help those with emotional eating disorders learn with tools how to reverse that process and get away from that destructive pattern and also help with body image struggles. Helping and teaching others to lead a healthier life because it's so much more important than most people realize. By what we eat we are either feeding disease or helping to prevent it. It's my mission to create healthier lives one life at a time.

      About

      Zig Ziglar once said, "You can have everything in life you want if you will just help other people get what they want." I truly believe that, and it is the foundation of my coaching practice. I provide business, career, and life coaching to clients from all walks of life and in all stages of their careers. I specialize in coaching individuals who are experiencing a major transition. This includes making the shift from graduate school to full-time employment, tackling new responsibilities that come with a promotion, or changing careers; however, I welcome any client who needs clarity and direction to realize a successful future. I take a comprehensive, whole-person approach to coaching that will allow you to achieve your full potential. My approach to coaching is based on trust, encouragement, and empowerment. For the coach-client relationship to be successful, the process must be collaborative and empowering. I truly believe that each individual is unique, and he or she holds the key to success. My role is to help shine a light on the path to get there. As a coach, it is my job to help you uncover and understand your true motivations, evaluate your strengths, and acknowledge your weaknesses. Armed with this information, we will clarify and refine your goals and create an action plan to achieve them. I typically accomplish this through one-on-one conversations, various assessments, and other methods depending on your specific situation. As the relationship progresses, we will review your goals to ensure you are making progress and refine them as necessary. The end goal of our working relationship is to empower you to continue learning and growing well after the coach-client relationship is over. I am solutions oriented, eternally optimistic, and a champion of people and their abilities. I genuinely believe that individuals are only inhibited by the restrictions they put on themselves. I hope to help you see beyond the old paradigms and beliefs that may have stifled your potential. My goal is to help you discover your true goals and help you make a plan to achieve them.

      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.

      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.  

      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.

      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.
