I worked with Ryan for two months, during which time he helped me transform from 'skinny fat' to fit! I'm now 32, and I have not felt this good in a bathing suit since high school. Through coaching me on healthy eating and a combination of weight training and cardio, Ryan finally helped me gain strength and lose the bulk or my back and stomach fat (other areas too, but those were my biggest problem areas), which had been slowing increasing for years. I also benefitted immensely from Ryan's PT background in ways I didn't even anticipate. Working with someone who truly understands the body's mechanisms made a tremendous difference for me, as Ryan was able to help me safely work around an injury I sustained unrelated to training, and get me back to 100%. I would definitely still be contending with this injury were it not for Ryan's guidance and expertise. I started with Ryan admittedly just wanting to look better, and came away not only having accomplished that, but feeling a million times better as well. Most importantly, Ryan is committed to my success not only while training with him, but for the long term. My only regret is not doing this sooner. It's an investment, but one that will pay big dividends provided you're committed to putting in the work. This has really changed my life. Thanks for everything, Ryan!!

I went in unknowing of what to expect and he explained everything to me in full detail. Explained what to expect, did all sorts of measurements and asked the right questions in order to better help him understand how to help me attain my goal of fitness and health that I was aiming for. He had me train my first day on his equipment to see what I could do and where I could improve. He provided lots of encouragement in the process. He even goes as far with you as to set up a diet plan that will work for you. This guy is great, enthusiastic! He obviously loves what he's doing and really just seems to want to help you be the best version of yourself. He will work with you on so many levels. Totally recommend this guy!

I saw videos of people getting toned, losing weight, and building muscle on FB and knew I wanted to workout with Alan as my coach. Alan coaches and motivates me through each set of movements and interjects good humor into each session. I have a lot of work to do to reach my fitness goals, however I know Alan is the personal trainer who will help me be successful.

Molly is wonderful! She responded right away, was easy to schedule with, and planned ahead for the goals we discussed. In the session, I felt like she really listened and was attentive to my safety and comfort level without making a big deal or being invasive. I would recommend an individual session with Molly to anyone who is new to yoga, who needs some help adapting practice to physical limitations, or who just wants some personal attention from a knowledgeable practitioner.

    As a personal trainer, I always look for ways to improve and build on my professional skill set. I sought Pete out to learn more about Z-Health and the way he trains his clients. I have since had sessions with him and I have attended one of his workshops. Pete is an exceptional trainer and coach. He is very methodical and has great attention to detail. This attribute is crucial for a trainer. Pete is a consummate professional and I highly recommend him as a personal trainer. Matt Supple, NSCA-CPT, FMS Built To Last Fitness

    Mery has been such an important part of my weight loss journey. As a trainer Mery took the time to listen to my needs, goals and priorities tailoring an exercise routine that fits my busy mommy and full time worker life style. Mery has been more than a trainer, she has been a coach and a friend who cares and motivates me every day. Since I started working with Mery I became more active, flexible, happier, my confidence has gone up, and I have lost a total of 20lbs.

        I’ve always struggled with my weight and I’m now at an age when changing my diet a little and exercise here and there throughout the week is not going to make much of a difference. I start to lose motivation when I don’t see or feel results within a couple of weeks. I like working with Power Step because not only do I get the intensity I need but the attention and comfort of working out with a professional. I could feel the difference with my asthma within a couple of weeks. I feel like I’m finally making a change in my health and weight! It’s a great feeling!

        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.  

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
