Some trainers are good, some are bad and then every once in a blue moon you’ll come across one who is exceptional. Elin is that guy. If you are a complete novice who’s never lifted a weight he can tailor a program to fit your needs that will introduce you to the world of fitness and change your life forever. But that’s not where it stops. If you are someone who’s been lifting for a couple of years and want to get into details about macronutrients, percentages, supplements he’ll enlighten you. It doesn’t matter how many articles you’ve read in MuscleMag this guys knowledge will amaze you. Even if you are an experienced body builder who’s looking for a coach or help crossing a plateau this is the trainer for you. Elin is realistic but motivational. He’s aware of limitations but will challenge you to exceed them. He’s humble and available, despite the abundance of clients that lean on him daily for his guidance and help. The proof is in the pudding, check him out. Interview him. Quiz him. Talk to him. If you don’t walk away impressed then you aren’t asking the right questions. If you are looking for a trainer that can help you no matter what skill level you are then Elin and his team are the ones for you.

I haven't begun working with Kelly yet, but I did speak with her for a little while on the phone. My impression is that she is not only legitimate, but also very professional, sincere, client-centered. I'm looking forward to working with her to overcome some personal challenges, build a successful coaching business, and broaden the horizons of my spirituality.

I really enjoyed my career coaching session with Laura. Her support and honesty led me to a greater understanding of what employers are looking for. I went out after our meeting and purchased a book she recommended and and found many helpful tips. I spent the next day giving my resume a much needed overhaul. Even my dad gave it a read and changed a few things on his resume too. I am so grateful! Thank you for everything, Laura!

Tammy is the most approachable coach that I have been across through social media. Truly the one and only that had taken the time to explain in an easy way how the Trim liquid system works. And to be honest if I decide to sell something it will be this amazing product and her as my leader. I thank her for being real and true to herself. Love her personal journey and story she shared with all of us.

Danny Dickerson is a highly motivating fitness and nutritional trainer. His personality, demeanor and temperament are uniquely suitable to be a coach for others. He is neither too strict nor too easy, but rather strikes the right balance to motivate his clients. He has a fund of knowledge in both physical training and in nutrition that he shares with his clients. Such extra sharing of his knowledge enhances the client's desire to succeed. Indeed, I have already seen great results. I have more energy, a better sleep pattern, a decrease in inches and more serenity. I am able to do more work around the house as a result of our work together. He is very detailed oriented and each session is both logical, linear and he documents the sessions. He also is quite a raconteur, which helps in his instructions. He is also timely and punctual. I would recommend him for any position with any organization, or for a reference to be added on any additional referral lists. Best regards, Joseph Friedman Attorney at Law

The best part of the coaching was breaking concepts down into meaningful functional examples. Her professionalism was excellent with high motivation and a contagious enthusiasm. She was extremely thorough and helped me structure a valuable way ahead. Each skill I worked on applies to many other personal aspects of my work. I look forward to the next sessions.

I loved working with Ms. Woods and am already looking forward to future endeavors! As my Life Coach she has been very encouraging and inspiring to me. As a business partner she was phenomenal and I WILL DEFINITEY work with her again. She represented me and my Art work at a bi-annual for women only affair hosted by her equally phenomenal Mother Ms. Gwendolyn Beatty-Woods. At the event she set up the display table very nicely. She sent me pictures to make sure I was satisfied with the setup! She collected funds for all of my art sold that weekend. She conducted the art raffle and made sure that she provided me with receipts and totals and tallies of everything that took place. There was even a woman at the event that wanted me to add a name to a Breast Cancer Awareness Painting she sold... Toronicia brought the painting to me, I did what I needed to do and she came and picked up the piece and delivered it directly to the buyer! Impressive! Yes she went above and beyond. Nothing would have improved the experience! It was perfect!

Amy is a very caring,positive supportive person. She is an excellent communicator with great patience. She was my life coach for about five years and helped me with my life goals and values. When I met my partner she became our couples coach. She was good at role playing and relationship skill exercises.She also was good at listening to us and not taking sides. The best thing I could say was that although I had been seeing her for years as my life coach , my girlfriend liked her from the start and always felt comfortable with her. She never felt that Amy favored me over her. This is the most compelling case I can make as to why Amy is so good and has a genuine affection for her clients. She is openly rooting for you. The things she could do better probably is true for most therapists and life or couples coaches. I felt especially as a couples coach she didn't challenge us enough or focus harder on some of the problems we were having. She did not however, attempt to do therapy which is beyond her training and was always clear and honest with us that she was a couples coach and not a couples therapist. My partner and I are still together and thanks to Amy we learned valuable communication skills and a respect for each other. I highly recommend Amy as both a life coach and a couples coach. You will always have a friend who cares about you and wants what's best for you in her.

The fall of 2014 was a turning point in my life. I was experiencing a crisis in that I was turning another year older and needed to find some perspective and direction in my life. My inability to truly understand my purpose created a state of panic and anxiety and I didn't know what to do. During this time I was referred to Center of First Thought. At first I was a little apprehensive about seeing a therapist but I was immediately put at ease. My therapist, Rose Shelton and I talked about my life path. I was able to put a lot of things into perspective. I thought of her as like a coach. Thanks to Ms. Shelton I have learned to see things more clearly and a lot of my anxiety about the future has disappeared. I am still growing and learning my path but I don't know if I could have come this far if it had not been for Ms. Shelton and Center of First Thought.

So far I've had one hypnosis session with Julian to help me with focus during my last semester in college. I had never experienced hypnosis before and he took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of my questions so I felt comfortable. Julian is extremely knowledgeable in this line of work and is very attentive to how you feel and what you want to focus on. The session itself was extremely relaxing (his voice has that effect) and with his guidance I was able to visualize my ideal state (in the session) to execute it in real life. Initially I wasn't sure it would work, but I have to say, I felt a difference immediately! The proof for me was seen later in that same week when I submitted a term paper EARLIER than the due date which is hard for a habitual procrastinator like I used to be. Since then, I have consulted him for guidance and support as a life/business coach. His perspective and advice has been invaluable thus far. I'm making progress much faster than I was on my own and he holds me accountable to my goals through unending support and encouragement. I cannot thank him enough!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a career coach?

If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

  • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
  • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
  • Defining your career goals
  • Creating a plan for job searching
  • Improving networking strategies and skills
  • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
  • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
  • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

Why is career counseling important?

Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

  • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
  • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
  • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
  • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
  • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
  • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
  • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

What is a career counselor?

If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
