5 years ago, weighing in at 378lbs, and a lack of motivation/ determination to do anything I decided to take my life back. The one constant thing in all this has been my personal trainer/ life coach Pete Haugabook. His unique meal plans, unmatched knowledge to weight lifting/ nutrition, and his ability to motivate makes him the best at what he does. To me, he’s not a trainer, he’s a friend. His meal plans won’t break the bank, and are extremely manageable. With his help, I have lost over 100lbs and have made fitness not only a routine, but a way of life.. Pete literally saved my life, and for that, I will always be grateful!

Gus is an excellent trainer and coach. He is very knowledgeable about the body, detailed in explanations, fun and professional. Workout plan is taylored to your specific needs according to your goals. Your time with him is not divided with another client but you have his full attention during your scheduled time. He is easy to contact outside of training should you have any questions. I have been training with Gus for 2 weeks and have noticed a change in my stamina, strength and body. I leave every workout tired but pumped and ready for the next appointment!!

I've been working with Tyrone for a little over a month now and this has been hands down the best experinace I've had with a personal trainer.. and that says a lot being this is only online training. I've paid triple the amount for in-person training and didn't learn half as much! Tyrone wakes me up with inspirational quotes and motivational words and along with my daily workout routine. He reminds me to drink water throughout the day- every day! When I have a question he responds promptly and is very patient. This has been an all around amazing experience for me and I have been shedding the pounds. I get compliments on my results all the time! I feel so much more confident and actually look forward to working out now. I want to be a client of tyrones for LIFE!! Thank you so much for everything Tyrone.

Therapy sessions are going well. Scheduling accommodates our busy scheduling needs and my son is getting along well and enjoys his sessions. I would recommend to others seeking similar services for family counseling.

I have been in the fitness industry myself for over 20 years, both teaching fitness classes and managing fitness facilities, and I have never come across anyone as experienced and knowledgeable as Brent. I have been training with Brent for at least 5 years now and he has done more to improve my overall health and, most importantly, a shoulder issue that I have struggled with for a very long time. For years I had been referred to numerous rehabilitation facilities by very reputable doctors and orthopedic specialists for a repetitive motion injury of the shoulder. I eventually had rotator cuff surgery, which I now feel may not have been truly necessary. None of that provided the results that my training at Advanced Training Techniques has. Their whole approach is completely different from the conventional rehabilitative programs. The individualized, one-on-one attention alone provides far greater benefits and results than any typical physical therapy or rehabilitative program. Brent has an incredible knowledge of the inner workings of the body and musculature and he pays particular attention to details such as proper body alignment and posture. These basic details are often overlooked in the typical physical therapy setting. Also, the one-on-one attention and genuine concern I have received from Brent and the Advanced Training Techniques team far surpasses anything I have ever experienced before. Their methods are more intuitive and, quite simply, make much more sense. Training with one’s own body weight and building strength and flexibility through proper form and alignment produces far better results than using any of the typical rehabilitative equipment in a typical clinic setting. I would highly recommend Brent and Advanced Training Techniques to anyone. Brent is highly qualified and excellent at what he does. Not only does he have the credentials and experience, but he also has a very genuine concern for the wellbeing of all of his clients. He certainly has changed my life for the better.

Wendy was instrumental in preparing me for interviews for an executive management position. She is patient, a great listener and has a keen sense to lock in on my strengths and weaknesses in terms of how I was presenting myself in the interview process. Although I was very qualified for the positions, I needed to effectively demonstrate that to my interviewers. As soon as I understood how to best present myself, I was more focused, confident and at ease during my interviews. Wendy knew exactly what I needed to do "my homework" on so I was very prepared. In the upcoming interviews for 2 different companies, the results spoke for themselves. I had immediate responses for follow up interviews with both organizations and ultimately had to choose which one to go with as both made me offers! Working with Wendy was a very different experience for me as a seasoned professional as I had never been "coached" for interviewing before. But I learned so much more about myself through working with Wendy and I'm so grateful for making that investment with her.

After a brutal divorce, the stress in my life was overwhelming. My counselor recommended Timothy to help with my anxiety and insomnia. I felt so much after my first session, I couldn't believe the difference. I've gone back for a few follow ups and I feel 100% better. He's given me the strength to move forward and I finally feel like myself again. He helped my sister and a co-worker, too. If you need to get your life back on track, go see Timothy. Highly recommended!

I first met Nada three years ago at a Women's journaling retreat. She is a great leader - she taught us how to look inward in order to improve relationships with others. Nada's teachings helped our small group bond with each other. Nada also does a wonderful job in coaching me over the phone with spiritual issues and provides positive feedback for my negative thought processes.

While working with Ms. Archibald at Detroit Behavioral Institute, I first noticed and was very pleased with her attentiveness, communication with staff and compassion for those she serviced. Working with children who come from various, yet similar, backgrounds and being able to bridge the gap of understanding was and is what makes Ms. Archibald a great counselor but not just the youth but also anyone who may be in need. No matter how exhausting the work may be, Ms. Archibald continues to improve her quality of work to better the quality of life for others beside herself. Selfless, persevering and having a timely attitude is only a brief look into the remarkable characteristics she posses.

I work as a personal development coach, also known as life coach, and am a psychic medium. These two unique areas also work well together to bring each of my clients a specialized look at their lives.

I strive on the success and happiness of my clients. I respect their privacy and only usually work via word of mouth. If you are not happy with me and don't recommend, then I don't work! When working with me, in either field, your happiness and success is a guarantee!

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.
