Elin and the trainer I worked with, Alek, are both professional and very responsive. Elin has so much information about health and nutrition and is always ready to give advice. My sessions with Alek have been productive and fun! I feel stronger than I have in years, and just signed up for more sessions because I have loved the progress I've seen.

I'm not one to write reviews, but because I'm passionate about working out, fitness and nutrition, I feel I should let others out there know what a great place Activate is for all of the above. I have been a member since it's inception and truly believe that it is different than any other facility or big box gym I've ever been a member of. At Activate you are not just another number or member but a person with individual needs. You are heard and encouraged to succeed whether it be from the staff (who are phenomenal by the way) or from other members who are also there to succeed. As a person who has struggled with my weight from my teens into adulthood, it has always been super-depressing to go from fitness center to fitness center and not achieve success. Even if I did achieve success, it was barely measurable, not to mention that I never learned anything about what is necessary to get results - appropriate nutrition and the kind of workouts needed for targeting fat loss. Like so many others, I was on the treadmill and elliptical wasting my time. Activate is the only place I have ever found true success with real, lasting weight loss and nutrition. The staff genuinely cares and encourages you to dig deep to get to the goals you set upon yourself. You will not only learn the best and most efficient way to lose weight, you learn what it takes to keep it off. It is not a fad or a "diet plan" center with pre-packaged breakfast, lunch and dinners, or pills to swallow to suppress your appetite and journals to count your points in. Activate is a fitness center that cultivates living a healthy way of life. It's a place with real people who truly understand because they too have had through their own struggles. It is not a spa where you won't break a sweat and it's not boot camp where someone will break you. Activate is a place where you will get results at the pace you dictate for you. I am a walking testament that it works.

I have worked with Gaurav over the past 3 years and during this time he not only introduced me to yoga but helped me cultivate a practice of my own. He is a patient instructor who pushes you but not beyond a comfortable pace. After learning from Gaurav I have realized that yoga is a complete mind body workout. I have never left a class feeling that I did not work my body hard. Gaurav has also been my nutrition guide over the past couple of years and has worked with me to improve the effects of PCOS. His 40 day plan helped me reset my body and allow my liver to detox while at the same time practiced moderation so i do not feel deprived. The plan helped me change my habits and get into the routine of making healthier choices food wise. With Gaurav's help my symptoms have greatly reduced and we continue to work on making my condition better by modifying the plan as need be. Overall my experience working with Gaurav has been extremely positive and has made me conscious of how important healing the body through yoga, exercise and nutrition is.

A GREAT dining experience from beginning to end. Chris is the ultimate professional, displaying extraordinary gourmet cooking skills blended with an engaging personality. Well before our special evening, I was given an opportunity to convey personal preferences and address any food limitations that might need to be considered. A beautiful seasonal menu was then provided, accommodating my general preferences, from which, we selected an amazing multi-course meal! Chris was right on time and established the perfect tone for a great evening to follow, inviting us to sit back and relax to becoming more involved in following his every move, if we'd like. We took advantage of the opportunity to watch a master at work and ask any questions that might help us to become any bit more skilled in the kitchen, as well. Chris' enthusiasm for the culinary world and vast knowledge about food is contagious and his dietary and nutritional tips incredibly informative. This was a welcome education on multiple levels. The beautiful presentation of each course was artwork, and our appreciation was only outdone by the delectable depth of its incredible taste. As delicious as the meal was and as informative and fun it was to watch it's preparation, Chris is simply an extremely nice, generous and caring person to invite into your home. For a unique dining experience where a gourmet restaurant, if feels, comes to the comfort of your home, rather than having to make the effort to go out to it, I KNOW you'll enjoy, as much as we did, the talents and charm of Chris Spears and a very special night you'll always remember.

June has done an excellent job of creating a customized plan to meet my nutrition and health needs. Her insight and advice have been very helpful throughout my journey to eating healthier and becoming more fit. She is very knowledgeable not only about creating a healthier lifestyle but also on maintaining a work/life balance.

At the start of my training I was very unfamiliar with proper use of equipment and had spent little time in the gym! Personal training was a big step out of my comfort zone as I had never followed a set routine before, Michael alleviated all of my worries and started me from the ground up! He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to excercises that beginners can preform, and has developed a program with visible progression and results. Would highly recommend him for his attention to detail and knowledge of nutrition and excercise as well as a fun workout!

If I could give her 6 stars I would! I am a tennis teaching professional and my job is very physical. During the last few years I had been experiencing injury after injury which was taking all the enjoyment out of my work. Corey is actually one of my students and she encouraged me to try Yoga with her. I was skeptical at first and thought Yoga was for "other people ". I could not have been more wrong! After one session with Corey I could tell this is exactly what I needed. I have been working with Corey for the last 6 months and I feel 20 years younger! Corey is not only a fantastic Yogini. She is incredibly knowledgeable and well versed in many schools of physical fitness. Like Pilates, Cross Fit, TRX?? She knows it all. Incredibly, her expertise does not stop there. Corey is also a walking repository of nutritional information. Going to Corey is a great value, she just knows so much and is so willing to help! In conclusion, the other thing I like and admire about Corey is that she practices what she preaches. She is in great shape and an athlete herself. As an athlete, that's important to me. I highly recommend you give her a try. You will be glad you did!!

I have been with Level 10 for almost 2 years, with a goal to get toned and stronger, and I have been able to get toned and lose 15 pounds and keep it off. As with any of your fitness goals you need to form habits that are going to help you get there. Level 10 helps you form habits around physical activity, nutrition and motivation that are easy to follow and fun to do. If you want a customized workout that matches your goals then you might want to consider Level 10 and it's the best priced of any program I have found.

I trained with Matt for my first “personal training” experience. I went in knowing what I wanted to improve and work on, also hoping to get a better understanding of my body and how I can improve my lifestyle to make it a bit healthier. I was a bit nervous since I wasn't sure what to expect. I was thinking the worse like: he was going to be really hard and tough on me, make me feel anxious or awkward, or even not feeling comfortable at all. That was not the case! He was great! He has a wonderful character and is super nice. I felt very comfortable during the session which was one of the most important things for me. I can tell he knows exactly what he doing and is very knowledgeable which made me feel like I was in the right hands. Fitness seems like his passion and he keeps up on the latest nutritional research and news. He is also very aware of my goals which we are strongly working on, my habits, metabolic type, and physical abilities. Why did I wait so long to meet him and start training? It is so much more beneficial than going to the gym and doing the same old work out each time. He provides different techniques and settings each time which I loved! Really great investment-not just to improve your lifestyle and physique, but to also gain a great friend in the process!

I was in need of a trainer who could help me achieve my fitness goals. I needed someone who was knowledgable, understands how to work with people who have a variety of fitness levels and nutritional needs, and could teach me how to make the most of my training sessions. I have been through college fitness classes, participated in numerous fitness plans, and tried a variety of exercise routines and it was hard for me to find a trainer who could teach me something new, let alone help me progress. My first session with CJ was a new experience. Instead of taking me around the gym from machine to machine and assigning an amount of weight and reps for me to do for the next month, he spent the time discovering what I could do and what my body needed. During my session he also taught me more about how the muscles work and how to build strength that was not the same old routine. I knew I had found my trainer. Future sessions consisted of a variety of exercises meant to push me further than I thought was possible. He paid attention to my form and helped me make adjustments so I could get the most out of each movement and avoid injury. I was also given extra exercises to do for homework until my next session. Every week is different so I am never bored and my body doesn't get stuck in a rut because it is always being challenged in new ways. As a woman I never felt uncomfortable because of the professionalism shown and he was was always willing to answer my questions. He also helped me find areas where I could improve my eating habits. CJ is constantly reading the latest research on nutrition and fitness and would relay what would be helpful for my fitness goals. I highly recommend CJ for anyone who is willing to put in the work it takes to improve their health and wants some intense butt kicking training sessions.

Catherine Brown of FIT Nutrition was the guest speaker at my 1st Annual Breast Health Day in honor of my Mother who died from Breast Cancer at the age of 34. Catherine's presentation was interactive and very informative in proper nutrition and fitness can have a positive impact in overcoming any health ailments. She engaged the crowd and kept the attention of everyone in the room. Because of this she was awarded the opportunity to come back to speak at our 2nd Annual Breast Health Day.

I’ve been training with Christopher Villarreal since January of 2013 and have made significant progress in my fitness and overall wellness. After turning 50 I was advised by my doctor to begin strength training and to pay closer attention to my health. I decided that it was my choice - I could roll downward over the hill, or finally take charge of my wellness. Christopher created a training program that accommodates my health issues and continues to challenge me to ensure improvement. His positive attitude and encouraging words have helped me stay committed to my goals. As my training evolved over time Christopher has added nutrition recommendations to help me optimize how my body uses food. The many compliments I receive on my appearance are an added bonus (especially when returning to my hometown to visit family and friends). His holistic approach to fitness, health and overall wellness is nicely balanced and easy to follow. Thanks to Christopher for being such a great trainer!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

How much do private cooking lessons cost?

You can take private cooking classes to have fun, to learn a new skill, to improve your health, to bond with your partner, to enjoy a playful first date or to have a unique birthday party experience. Nationally the average cost of private cooking lessons ranges between $100 and $150. Prices can vary, depending on where you live, the type of cooking class you’re taking, the ingredients the chef provides, and the reputation of the chef. Cooking classes with Anthony Bourdain will clearly cost more than classes with a local restaurant owner. The number of people in the class will also affect the cost, with group lessons often priced per person to account for the cost of ingredients. For example, for group lessons, a brunch workshop may cost an average of $70 per person, a steak dinner with sides could cost an average of $80-$85 per person, and a sushi lesson could cost an average of $100 per person. Ingredients play a major role in cost, as the chef will pre-purchase the food you will be working with. Weekday classes will usually cost less than weekend classes.

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.
