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 am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

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.

Raffi led an informal group which I attended along with a few classmates from Israel in the summer of 2010. We had just returned to New Jersey from studying in a one- to two-year fellowship abroad. Raffi smoothed our transition back to American life, all while volunteering his time and skills. He is extremely intelligent, insightful, trustworthy and pragmatic. I recommend Raffi without hesitation or reservation. He has a serious goal-focus balanced with a great sense of humor. Raffi is a tremendous, vital person to turn to.

Patrick and I met at a local coffee shop and discussed what I wanted to get out of this interview coaching experience. He gave me the tools I needed to structure my interview responses in the most effective way possible, which was exactly what I was looking for. Patrick has a wealth of knowledge and experience to help guide you, at a terrific value- especially for recent college graduates looking to get into the workplace. He also critiqued my resume and gave me tips for that. I look forward to working with him in the future to continue my prep.

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.

A good friend of mine suffers from anxiety, so i connected her with Tim. I thought she might be intimidated to go see him, since she struggles with fear. Tim put her at ease right away, and gave her hope. That's something that has been missing from her life for a long time. Thanks, Tim for making such a big difference in other people's lives.

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

When I first started working with Jennifer I was not too sure what to expect. In the first week I saw immediate results! My stress levels went from about a 10 out of 10 to a 2! Now, my Doctor is very pleased with my improved health and bloodwork and I am continuing to see positive results. If you are considering Jennifer for your coach, I would urge you to do it now for yourself and your family! - Michael Finazzo

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.

I tried coaching as a way to help me through some difficult decisions I was facing. Dr. Luke helped me accomplish specific goals in my personal and professional life. Her coaching helped me set boundaries and cut through to my core issues. I have recommended her to several friends.

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!

I was not sure what to expect when I entered into a coaching relationship with Chris but have been beyond impressed with the value I've received from our sessions. During our coaching sessions, I feel Chris is able to deeply listen and then re-direct the conversation or discussion in a way that is insightful and productive for me. I would recommend Chris to anyone who wants professional or personal coaching! I've also been impressed with the range of topics we are able to cover together.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
