My wife and I were in need of counselling a couple years ago. We spoke to John of Life Bride Coaching and our lives have been better for it ever since. He set us up for an appointment at a time that was convenient for us. He even said we could call him at any time if we needed to talk. John is not your typical therapist. He takes a vested interest in all of his clients and holds his clients accountable for attaining the results they seek. Since meeting John, my wife and I have become better communicators with one another, and we listen to understand each other more often than not. John saved our marriage!

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!

Sam Turay is a great personal trainer; he is highly attentive to helping his clients reach their personal goals through educating clients on the proper techniques of exercise and eating healthy. My first session he asked me about my eating habits, exercising style, he then in turn taught me about using proper form, worked with me while doing the exercises and instructioned how I could maximize my workout experiences even on days I wasn't working with him. He's down to earth, honest, and conducts business with integrity which is definately a plus for me. Any chance I get, I tell anyone I know who wants to reach their weight loss goals about him. If you're looking for someone who will be encourage you and support you...he's the man!

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.

The overall stresses of balancing military and personal life can be overwhelming at times. After failing a physical fitness assessment, I sought out a personal trainer and found Kameron. I had 42 days to not only gather myself physically, mentally and emotionally but to also re-attack a MUST PASS physical fitness test. I felt as though the weight of the world was on my shoulders when I initially started working with Kameron. Kameron helped me reach my goal of passing my physical fitness test. MOST IMPORTANTLY, he was not only concerned about my physical well-being but also equally, if not more, concerned about my mental and emotional well-being. There were many days when I would drag myself to a training session after a long day of work. I don’t talk very much but Kameron always knew when I didn’t have much to give inspite of my efforts. He spent numerous hours talking or just simply listening to me. He taught me how to take care of myself from the inside out. Kameron is a great trainer AND lifestyle coach. I would recommend him to anyone who has previously attempted to improve their lifestyle and did not have much success. He understands beating your body up in the gym is not what’s going to help you achieve success. He is a MUST HAVE for those of you who are mentally/emotionally exhausted and are honestly tired of “trying to get it together.” Give it one more try with Kameron at your service. You won’t regret it!!

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.

Justin has been my Personal Trainer since October of 2016. We have averaged 2 sessions a week over this period. In my late 30's, as a new dad, I decided it was time to reclaim my fitness. Justin has helped me do it in ways I never expected. Improving my posture and "curving" in all my lifting movements has allowed me to increase strength while reducing recovery time. I no longer have the back pains that were a constant for five years prior. Justin has a unique ability to push me beyond my mental limits- stretch my own tolerance for discomfort. When I am traveling and working out a hotel gyms, I find it much easier to put together a routine with limited resources. Additionally, I find myself pushing harder than I can remember without any prompting. I wasn't looking for a quick fix, although I'm sure Justin could facilitate some impressive 1-2 month results. I wanted a guide to safely increasing strength, building routine, and instilling discipline in my exercise.

I asked for coach Dennisons help in designing a nutrional plan to help me prepare for an up coming jujitsu tournament. Coach Dennison prepared a specific and detailed plan tailored to my goals and my body to help me reach to weight I wished to compete at in a short time while not compromising the intensity of my training. I would certainly consult with Coach Dennison again when preparing for future competitions.

I've been training with Nate several times a week for over 5 years, and I couldn't be more pleased with my progress, fitness level (strength, duration, flexibility), and the ongoing challenge and diversity of workouts -- they're never boring and incorporate strength, stability and core, time under tension, and functional training for every part of my body. In addition, Nate's a nice guy with a great sense of humor, so the workouts are tough but enjoyable. After his initial assessment, he continued to take the time to get know me individually and has a vested interest in my health, well being, strengths, and weaknesses (he enjoys identifying and having me work on my weaknesses!). Nate works hard with each of his clients and he customizes each workout for their individual needs and goals. In the 5+ years I've trained with him, Nate has never been late or missed a workout -- even in snowstorms! When I need to change a training appointment, Nate works very hard to find a time that is mutually beneficial. Finding the right personal trainer that had the proper knowledge, experience, equipment, interpersonal skills, and motivation to align with mine was tough; and I couldn't be happier to have found Nate. My investment in training with him has been more than worth it: I'm in great physical shape, my doctor asks if I've found the fountain of youth, and I've made a good friend in the process.

When I had asked Ava to do a reading for me, it was a time during my life when I was struggling to pick a path between doing what was expected of me and what my passions and desires were. After my reading, I felt more confident in choosing the path that would be more difficult but rewarding in the end. Ava not only explained the cards dealt to me but how they related to my situation where as other readers I have had in the past just blurted out a description clearly memorized out of a book. I would definitely recommend her for a more experienced and personalized reading. Thank you so so much Ava!

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.
