Waking up at 6am is difficult and being energized is even more challenging. But Peter is able to keep me focused, engaged and enthusiastic with my 6am workouts and I leave feeling great and ready to tackle the day. He has listened to my workout goals and developed a personalized workout plan for me. I feel like I am working out more effectively than ever before and I can't wait to see the results (I am only a week in). I was impressed the first session when he said that it was a better use of his and my time if I did my cardio warm-up before he arrived so that I wasn't paying him to watch me run on a treadmill - I feel like that showed he respected that I was paying for training and he wanted to make sure I got my money's worth. Peter has also given me great advice about nutrition and workouts outside of my training sessions with him. I feel like he knows his stuff and will ensure I don't injure myself or strain anything while at the same time pushing myself beyond what I think I can do. I feel great and I'm very satisfied so far and would recommend him as a trainer to anyone.

IK Fitness is wayyy above the rest. Ian is knowledgeable in all aspects of training, nutrition and fitness. I started with him in 2005. He provided a whole plan of cardio, weight training, and nutrition. He allowed me to achieve my goals, was forever encouraging and always ready to push me when I got lazy! The workouts are great and never boring, but the best part of Ian is the follow up he provided when I wasn't in the gym, just to check in on my progress!!! Super professional

When I first met Erika, I had just set out to attempt my first ever sprint triathlon. Up to that point, I had been exercising on my own and lost over 100 lbs. I still needed lots of training and only 8 weeks until the race. What Erika then did for me was above and beyond what I could have done on my own. We began training; building powerful muscles and developing balance and stability. She even helped with nutrition planning and recovery tips. I completed my first sprint triathlon but felt my result was lackluster. For a first timer, this was normal. The next day I quickly signed up for another sprint triathlon for that summer. Once we began training for that, Erika amazed me yet again. The training sessions became much more intense. She provided solid motivation to keep up my mental strength. We built lots of explosive muscle and incredible cardio stamina. I finished the 2nd triathlon in the top 50% overall. It felt amazing. The training also translated well in my other hobby, soccer. The results were very real.

Lucie is absolutely the real deal and a true expert for personal training AND nutrition! I trained with Lucie for about a year and saw the most amazing changes in my body composition and strength than at any other time in my life. I had been around different sports conditioning/ workout programs for about 15 years, since my mid-teens, but can honestly say that I never really knew proper training AND nutrition until I worked with Lucie. You can see that I capitalize "AND" when I say training AND nutrition because when you work with Lucie she proves how much they truly go together. She is truly adept in both training and nutrition and gets results!! She practices what she preaches and her work ethic is contagious. Lucie taught me changes for what to eat and when to eat it. What to have before and after a workout. How much of a certain type of food or nutrient to have a day. How heavy I should be lifting. Everyone is different Lucie can customize based on the client and their goals. If you put forth the effort Lucie has the knowledge and passion for fitness to change your life. Lucie taught me all of these aspects to training and I am forever grateful for the changes she helped me achieve.

"I am a challenging client because I hate pushing myself! John makes our work outs fun. They would fly by before I could do too much complaining. What impressed me most is his knowledge of the human body and how it responds to specific workouts, nutrition, and supplements. He's more than a trainer who reminds you that it’s all a mind game, he becomes your coach. He tweaked my diet, he educated me about reaching my goals, and helped me learn how to maintain that goal. I would recommend him for anyone looking for real results." Cindy

Our family has interacting with Michael Demakis on various levels. My daughter, a soccer player, has worked with Mr. Demakis on strength and agility for approximately the last 2.5 years in preparation for, and now playing college soccer. His training in combination with his recommended nutritional program has yielded great results. Specific areas of improvement that we can directly relate to Mr. Demakis include: strength, agility, ball control, endurance, speed and acceleration and most importantly a strong core that helps resist injuries and improves rate of recovery. I personally have worked with Mr. Demakis on nutritional program that has allowed me to lose 43 pounds. My wife and I now work work with Mike on a weekly basis to improve my strength and flexibility. We highly endorse Mr. Demakis as a personal trainer for the college-bound athlete as well as for those of us who want to get back in shape.

CT Nick is a Godsend! He’s far more than a fitness trainer. CT Nick is a total fitness and wellness coach. I work in a service-oriented industry where professionalism and consistency is key for the success of the company. CT Nick exemplifies professionalism! He’s intelligent, articulate, educated in the field of fitness, nutrition and overall wellness. He’s also very punctual. He communicates beyond the hours of my workout schedule. He makes continual diet recommendations via text messages along with encouraging statements aimed at keeping me focused on my fitness goals. Evidence of his skill as a knowledgeable and goal oriented trainer is in the fact that I lost 10 pounds in one month. My weight loss has even been a topic of conversation on my job and with friends that attend my church. These amazing results did of course require a very strong commitment on my part. This is a real trainer/client relationship, which is exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend CT Nick’s fitness services. He will be my personal fitness coach on a long-term basis.

Priya is like your own personal cheerleader. She is not only a health wikipedia who knows all about food and nutrition, but is also vastly knowledgeable about all sorts of holistic healthcare methods like natural supplementation and treatments like acupuncture. She is really invested in her clients' health, and she doesn't just dole out advice; she works with you to help you learn what works best for you and your lifestyle. However, if you need a push, she'll definitely give you that too! Changing habits is difficult, and as someone with a chronic condition, it was easy to lose motivation or feel like my progress was going backwards, but Priya was always there to remind me of how far I have come and to help me get through my ups and downs. She is great about checking in frequently and making sure I am steady on the path to achieving my health goals. And whenever I had hiccups, she would remind me it's ok to be human, and that to mess up is alright, and also part of the wellness journey. Consistency is important, and there is always tomorrow to make up for the stumbles. Without Priya's guidance and dedication, I would not have been able to find the self-confidence to get healthier. She has really helped to change my life for the better, and I cannot recommend her services enough.

Ricardo and Arianna are extremely passionate and dedicated coaches! First with a detailed meal plan that I couldn't have ever imagined how in depth it was, with lots of options as well. Also as a vegan this meal plan make sure I reach all of my nutritional needs. The work outs are challenging at first, but effective. Thankfully, they are also throughly explained for anyone hasn't a clue in the gym like myself. Ricardo and Arianna are great when it comes to answering any sort of questions and respond right away. Amazing experience, something I will take with me for the rest of my life.

I've been training with Mike and Susan, the owners of KM Fitness, on and off for a year. Both have motivated me to take better care of my health. I appreciate their flexibility to work with my ever-changing schedule, their immense knowledge of how our bodies work, and their encouragement without judgement. I consider them friends and value their good-natured attitudes, as much as their expert nutrition and physical fitness expertise.

I started working with Brianne last year, and I couldn’t be more happy! I was in a rough spot in my life, feeling down and unmotivated. I had become the heaviest that I have ever been in my life, and I needed a change. I am so thankful that I contacted Ohana Wellness. Over the past year, I have lost almost 100 lbs working with Brianne. YES 100! She keeps my nutrition program evolving with every month my body changes, and we have been doing private personal training sessions 3x weekly. I’m actually now in the best shape of my life at 35 years old! I have strength, and most importantly, my confidence back. All of my chronic pains that came along with being obese have subsided, and I feel the best I have ever felt! I can’t give Brianne enough credit, she changed my life and I am eternally grateful!!

To Whom It May Concern, April 2016 I should begin this statement by telling you that I am a self-proclaimed lazy human. When people asked me if I went to the gym, my response would be, "I hate exercise." And it was true. I would start up a program, quit, take classes, get bored or intimidated... I was always too busy, too broke, and too tired. And with that being said, I was chubby and unhealthy and had very little strength ability. I tried every fad diet in the book. My weight would be up and down constantly and I never held any goal for more than a week or two. I am 33 years old, 5'9, and at the beginning of this program my weight fluctuated between 166-169 pounds. My initial Body Composition read at [34%] which put me in the "overweight" category. I began a personal training program with Arthur Ostrom on February 2014, 4 months before my wedding date. I came clean with Arthur about all of my unhealthy habits. And his mantra remained the same: "This is fitness and nutrition for EVERY DAY LIFE. I am never going to tell you that you can't eat or drink something." And believe me, I was skeptical. I had a true phobia of carbs (it was definitely the bread products that were causing my fat thighs, could never be the beer and cocktails...) and would go hours without eating anything and indulge in big meals in between. And although my food choices weren't awful, Arthur encouraged me to change the way that I was eating. He helped me build a diet plan that definitely fit my lifestyle. And at first, I felt like I was eating way too much, but then I started to understand the program. I ate less at meal times, and made better choices because I wasn't starving. I started training one day a week. I had tried personal training before and always left in excruciating pain, barely able to walk the next day. Arthur took things slowly at first, assessing my abilities and my limitations. We took time to stretch between exercises. The next day, I could definitely feel the work we had done, but I wasn't in pain and felt confident to try again the next week. Each session got increasingly more difficult, but in such a gradual way that I never felt discouraged or apprehensive about the program. I began to feel more confident about my abilities and eager to try some of the things that I was petrified of before. Arthur was with me every step of the way. He emailed me after every session, recapping our work and sending me articles and ideas for recipes and workouts. This was probably the most important aspect of my program. I was accountable to someone and that person cared about how I felt after my sessions, what I was eating, and how I felt my progress was. I was never afraid to ask questions and Arthur was always prompt in responding. I went from one session a week, to two, and ended with three sessions the final week before my wedding. Together, Arthur and I changed not only my appearance, but more importantly, my lifestyle. I am currently at a weight of 159 pounds and my Body Composition has decreased to [30%] placing me in the normal range. I feel amazing in my wedding dress and am looking forward to continuing my sessions with Arthur after the big day! Regards, Kerry M.

Val - Gym on the go!

    Verified review

    My evaluation of Val as a trainer is that she is OUTSTANDING. I have been with her for 10 years, and here is the reason why. Over 10 years ago, I found myself in the situation of having to become a caregiver (specifically for my Mom). For those who have never been a caregiver, I can tell you that it can take a lot out of you mentally and physically (depending on the situation). I have never been in the best of physical condition, but I had really neglected myself. I attained a weight of about perhaps 220 pounds, very poor cardiovascular status, high blood pressure, a type of pale to greyish skin complexion (not to mention a very scraggy beard). Indeed, if you saw me, you would want to put me out of my misery...this is NO exaggeration. My doctor, upon examination, gave me THE warning...either begin physical exercise, watch what I eat, or be placed in ICU. I joined NYSC, and was referred to Val. She did a physical evaluation on me, determined what type of training I needed, AND she asked me what did I wish to accomplish (which was to lose weight, tone down, improve cardiovascular condition, or, in other words....TO BE COMPLETELY RECYCLED). Indeed, with the precision, planning, and necessary (in my case) toughness of a drill sergeant, 10 years on, I have improved greatly. Indeed, I have more endurance, more flexibility, more muscular development which I could never achieve alone. I simply do not look my age. And I just plain feel better. The training that Val puts me through is quite thorough. There is always advice on nutrition (she has a degree in this), and an extensive knowledge of anatomy with which helps with some muscular problems that I endure from time to time. All in all, I firmly believe that having Val as my trainer saved my life, and I am hoping for another 10 years with her as my trainer. For those of you who read my testimony, I strongly urge you to sign up with an introductory training session with her. Val will listen to your concerns, and ask you what you want to accomplish in a training program. I am confident that you will not be disappointed. Salvatore Mauro December 13, 2016

    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.  

    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.
