I wanted a coach for a Bikini competition and chose Gus because he has prior experience with getting WOMEN ready for bodybuilding competitions (harder to find). Gus has a great attitude, is encouraging, but also keeps it real and pushes you to be accountable to the goals set. He is always available on text or phone if you have any questions. He typically replies to me within 30 minute of me texting him a question, which is faster than I would expect, or need it to be. He gave me a print out of exactly what workout and what weight to do based off where I started, that leaves very little guessing on my part. I always know exactly what I need to do. He adjust these everytime I see him to insure I'm getting the results I want. He has also given me macros to follow so I can do flexible dieting. And has connected with me on MyFitnessPal so we can easily go over the information together. He's educated about diet and knows not to starve his competitors, and has already made sure we discuss reverse dieting after the competition. This is all exactly what I wanted and what works for me. But I know based on talking with him that he does a variety of training styles and methods depending on what results people are looking to get. No cookie cutter plans, everything he works out specifically for each client.

Thank you so much David! Thank God for placing you in my life!

Connie has been a terrific coach. I've been working out with her consistently twice a week since June 2, 2017. She is completely reliable and punctual. Also always friendly and upbeat without being intrusive. She is supportive, nonjudgmental, and responsive to my physical status. She is eager to provide the specific type of training and any particular accommodations that I may need. In terms of the training itself, she has a huge repertoire and is always mixing it up to keep things fresh and keep my muscles working their hardest. Her knowledge is impressive. I recommend her most highly!

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'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.

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.

Nik is very friendly, knowledgeable and will cater your workouts to whatever your goals are! He also tailors the workouts to any type of injuries you might have. For me, i have shoulder injuries that prevent me from doing certain weight lifting movements and Nik had no issues with switching up the movements and showing me how to lift without hurting myself again. He truly cares about each and every one of his clients and wants nothing but the best for them. I highly recommend Nik if you’re looking for someone to change your life ☺️

Working with a personal trainer from Personal Improvement Experts has been the best decision I've made in my life. They really care about your health and general well being.

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.

    Working with Beverly has been a life changing experience. She has opened my eyes up to new ways of looking at the world and looking at my life. She has helped me rediscover who I am and has helped me to see my gifts. I have always been drawn to healing and Beverly has trained me in many aspects of the healing arts. The experiences have deepened my connection to creator and to all the beings of the world. There have also been times when she has done specific healing on me or members of my family and we have had great outcomes. Beverly has a very special connection with creator and is very led by spirit. I am impressed by how she trusts so strongly in what spirit tells her and how she sees truth so well. She demands alot of her students which can be very challenging but sometimes it is this hard work that can bring us to new places. I do have so much more to learn and the toughest thing for me is the geographical distance. I like learning face to face the best and miss the regular contact of being in the same local. I guess that I most wish that I can take some classes with her soon.

      Nicole is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. She is invested in each of her clients and considers their success her success. She pushes you to do your personal best while providing the motivation necessary to stay consistent. She provides mentoring/coaching not only for your fitness regimen, but customizes a "diet" plan that works best for you. I have worked with many trainers but was never completely pleased with my results until I met Nicole, with her motivation and guidance I have been able to lose weight and keep it off.

      About

      I offer full-service career campaign services from identifying what you have to offer the world, to putting your marketing materials together, to strategizing an effective search experience. My clients have branded me a best friend, a mom, and a drill sergeant, all wrapped up in one individual. Helene L. writes: Jane served as my career coach long before the term was invented. She genuinely cares about the success of her clients and friends, and her no-nonsense, can-do attitude motivate you to set goals, create a strategy to achieve them, overcome your inertia, and get out there and make things happen! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a deeply knowledgeable, dedicated, well-connected resource to help them find the courage and develop the tools to explore new possibilities. And from David R: When I first contacted Coach Jane, I had just been laid off after a long tenure at a large company and when a recruiter asked me, what do you want to do? I had no answer. Well, I don't have that problem anymore. Coach Jane's guidance and support helped me to identify what it was I was looking for in a career and, more importantly, what I was looking for in an employer. Not only did Jane help me figure out what I wanted to do with my life but she also helped me discover more about who I am as a person. It got to be almost like therapy. I can honestly say that what I learned in the short time working with Coach Jane will guide me through the rest of my life. And Joe continues: I went to Coach Jane during a period of transition in my life and was spinning my wheels in making a decision to stay at my current job, look to another job, self-employment, or other options. I suffered from "paralysis from analysis" and felt overwhelmed by the changes in my personal life along with these career decisions. I first believed a career coach just helps evaluate the potential job choices, but Jane's system digs deeper and provides insight into your system of values and beliefs to determine the environment, not just the job, that is the best fit. Coach Jane's methods provided a needed period of introspection and reprieve from self-imposed pressures, and ultimately identified a conflict between my values and how success had been defined by my environment. Beyond her system, you can see Coach Jane truly cares about those she coaches.

      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.
