Having Rhonda as my personal trainer was an absolutely wonderful experience. She is patient, professional, and reliable. She took the time to understand my needs, and helped me improve where I needed it most. She educates her clients in the process by teaching proper form and informing them which muscles are being targeted with each workout. She is extremely knowledgeable and just an overall wonderful person to work with. Our sessions always flew by because she made the workouts fun and effective. I’ve definitely incorporated her advice in my own workouts at the gym. I highly recommend her!

I am so grateful to Katie! I have been overweight after having two kids and never thought that I would regain the confidence I used to have in my body. Katie has thoughtfully provided me with exercises and nutritional tips that have completely changed the way I look at working out! I feel so much more confident and actually look forward to our sessions! The sessions with Katie have just the right amount of challenge - I never feel like she is asking me to do the impossible but I still come away glowing from a great workout. She also has a fantastic personality. I always thought I would be scared of my personal trainer, but she is so friendly and makes me feel comfortable at every session. Give Katie a try and I know you'll love her!

Evis has been my personal trainer for 4 months now and I have seen results in that time. His easy going and has a friendly personality that creates relaxed comfortable atmosphere. He makes each workout different, challenging and most importantly, fun! I've learned a lot on kick boxing specially on how to kick properly, the different types of punches and how to block punches and kicks. He knows just how and when to encourage and when to push. I definitely recommend him without reservation. 👊

I have been working with Mackens as my personal trainer for the past 3 months. I hate excersizing, Macken makes it almost fun. He makes me want to push myself for him. As I got older, I found I was falling more often. I knew I needed help before I got seriously injured. Macken has made such a big difference. I am no longer afraid of falling, I have the strength to prevent an accident and I owe it all to Macken. Macken has not cancelled an appointment nor been late. I highly recommend him, trust me you will not be sorry.

I was hesitant to hire a personal trainer at first and Carlos has really helped me to feel comfortable getting myself in better shape and ultimately taking better care of myself. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure to explain the exercises and plans for our sessions. I look forward to continuing to work with him.

I bought a package of personal training sessions and it’s the best thing I’ve done in ages! I could never get those results on my own. I’ve really surprised myself at how far I’ve come and how much stronger and fitter I am in just a few weeks. I’ve been terrible at sticking to my diet and I’ve still lost inches and even better I feel so much firmer, more alert and healthier. I was planning on only doing a couple of weeks training before a holiday but I’m definitely going to keep going when I get back. I am usually a total cynic with this stuff but honestly, if you want to get fit, get in shape or just get stronger and healthier I couldn’t recommend this more.

Gil is excellent and although willing to adapt the workout to what you want, it is always an intense workout, which I love. I didn't like the previous gym he was at but stayed only because of his personal training. I just joined the new gym that he works at and am glad he changed because he picked a gym that I really. But I joined mainly to be able to continue training with Gil. He recently introduced his partner Trini to the programme and she is also a very versatile trainer who knows her stuff and gives intense workouts. I highly recommend both of them and together they are a powerhouse team. I also appreciate that they both go beyond the exercise classes to take a personal interest in nutrition and give advise.

Having met Dr. Anna is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I had been in therapy for over a decade with various counselors, but now I know the difference between a therapist and a Therapist. She is warm, compassionate and creative, no two sessions are the same, and she seems to have an incredible repertoire of techniques at her disposal. She is always goal-oriented, makes sure that results are really happening, and always explains everything so clearly as you have never heard and never understood before. She has the greatest sense of humor, her academic knowledge is amazing, and her fine-tuned sensitivity boarders on the mystical. Yet she is always funny, down to earth, and real. I've never laughed so much in therapy sessions before! :-) I am so grateful, ... because I am finally discovering what "free" and "happy" really mean!

Had the pleasure of working with Toni a couple of years ago. Extremely patient and very understanding with my needs. She never made me feel as if I wasn't losing the weight that she expected and always gave me great guidance. She always had time to listen to my struggles throughout the week and was never judge mental on my failures. She always encourage me to do better and I felt as if she was more of a friend then a coach. I would always recommend Toni to anyone that needs help losing weight and maintaining it off....

George Lewis/Inner Fire Fitness is hands down the best personal trainer I have ever worked with. I've worked with Mr.Lewis for 4 months and he changed my life. He motivated me, encouraged me, and pushed me to achieve fitness goals that I never thought were possible. I hate ab workouts they were challenging for me, he saw this,to encourage me, and motivate me Mr.Lewis got on the floor and did the entire ab workout session with me. What more could I ask for, he's the best personal trainer ever!! I still hate ab workouts but I can do them now because he believed in me, and now I believe in myself. He is passionate about fitness, nutrition, and making sure that his client's get the results they want. His workouts are challenging but he makes them fun. He has a great personality, he's friendly, laid back,and funny but he is serious about his job. He is professional, he always shows up prepared for every session. He is educated in the field, he has a degree in Kinesology from Penn State, that alone is worth it's weight in gold. Hire George Lewis/Inner Fire Fitness no matter what your goals are, no matter what your challenges are he is the right person to help you get what you want.

Rob was professional from day 1 - taking notes and talking about goals and nutrition. He was encouraging and easy to get along with - he was also very motivating and created great workout routines for me. He was always flexible and understanding of any changes to my schedule.

We’ve all been there – no matter what type of company we have. Our staff and perhaps our Board of Directors have looked at an issue and seem to come up with the same ineffectual answer. We’re at a standstill. Being immersed in a specific industry has its advantages, but can also lead to blindness for new approaches and answers. As business owners and leaders, sometimes we need a different perspective. But who do we turn to? That’s where I was in early 2008, with a number of critical issues that needed to be prioritized, addressed, and resolved. When I met Jim Sandler of KM Consulting, I could envision the value of the excellent individual coaching. Within my first one-to-one meeting with Jim, he came up with two to three outstanding ideas to turn my upcoming fundraiser into an even bigger success. Once I saw how quickly and deftly he identified my challenges and created and proposed solutions, I realized that bridging knowledge from industry to industry was his specialty. And through that insight and his direct and clear approach, he is truly able to cultivate an inspired and effective coaching situation. His wisdom, creative angles and experience is now an integral part of how I approach and tackle short term and long range challenges and opportunities. Our arts organization is flourishing and growing, because he is helping ME to flourish and grow. Every month, I work Jim Sandler for ideas, goals and also to celebrate the successful outcomes; and it absolutely works for me.

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.

What is a health coach?

A health coach is a service provider you can hire to help you realize your wellness goals. You can hire a health and wellness coach to guide you through life changes, keep you focused on weight loss or fitness goals, help boost your mental health, and more. Many health coaches work with their clients for set periods of time as the client moves toward a measurable goal. Wellness coaches come from varying backgrounds, and may have different areas of focus depending on their education and training. Research potential coaches by reading their reviews, researching their academic and personal backgrounds, and learning about any certifications they have earned from coaching institutes. Often, health and wellness coaches sell coaching packages ranging from three to six months or longer, depending on the client’s needs. The average national cost for an individual health coach session ranges from $60 to $90, although prices may range as low as $30 or up to $130 or more, depending on your location and the coach.

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.   

What is a holistic wellness coach?

When you want to reach new heights with your health and wellness, consider hiring a holistic wellness coach. Much like a health coach, a holistic wellness coach is focused on your well-being and meets with you in one-on-one sessions to help you identify and reach your targeted goals. A holistic wellness coach will typically have you take all components of your life into account when working to achieve your goals. If your goal is to lose weight, a holistic wellness coach will not only offer recommendations for your diet and exercise, but also discuss your emotional health, your work/life balance, your spiritual side, and each area of your life that affects your ability to follow a nutrition and fitness plan.

Although they are highly motivational and often can help clients achieve great results, holistic wellness coaches are not professional health care providers or registered dietitians. Different institutes and training centers provide certifications for holistic wellness coaching, so be sure to research your coach and read their reviews to understand more about their techniques and training.  

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.
