Gaurav's unique and vastly superior classes are gaining such popularity that it is difficult to "get in the door!" He brings a wealth of knowledge from many schools of thought that is rare to find in the mainstream yoga, instructor community. His classes are truly transformational to the body. mind and spirit. . I feel like a different person both physically and mentally. I leave with new insights and tools to apply both to my day-to-day life, and to my personal yoga, breathwork and meditation practice. Gaurav carries with him a beautiful energy and wisdom, that emanates through his generosity of time, encouragement and expertise on a variety of subjects, to further empower us as we go back to the challenges and opportunities of the day!

I started my weight loss journey about 3 months ago, wanting to lose a few pounds for my wedding. I went into this experience not know what to expect. In juse a few short months I have lost 23 pounds and have found a new passion for working out. JR has been great to work with! Not only is he the most knowledge trainer, but he is equally a great business owner. Very flexible and willing to work around my busy schedule. Over the course of the last 3 months my workouts have been challenging, new and never borning. On top of working out JR has taught me how to eat right. I can not say enough good things about JR and Force Fitness. If you are looking to get in the best shape of your life and have a good time doing it, hire JR!

I've been training with Tim for more than 1 year. He is the best personal trainer I had so far. He'll adjust the training level based on your strength and push you to achieve your goals. I lost more than 10 lbs and decreased body fat by 4% already. I highly recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a great personal trainer.

I have been working with Ray for six months and have never felt fitter or stronger in my life. He is both patient and motivating, he's helped me perfect form on exercises I've always been too intimidated to try by myself. I've lost 2 pant sizes and hit strength goals I could never have achieved alone. I know that from warm up to strength training and cardio I am getting a great workout, learning new exercises, and pushing myself to new personal bests thanks to his guidance and coaching. -C.

Patrick was my supervisor at one of my first jobs out of college. Now nine years later, we both have moved on from those jobs and that company, but I continue to seek his advice and coaching when I am applying and interviewing for a new job. Last year when I was preparing for a big job interview, Patrick coached me in Behavioral Interviewing via phone, Skype, and email. Before I talked to Patrick, I was feeling overwhelmed and unprepared. Patrick's coaching helped me feel at ease, confident, and prepared for my interview. I highly recommend seeking counsel from Patrick to advance your career.

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.
