Tom has the unique ability to provide Heath coaching and life coaching. This prompted me to return to him after 12 months away. He is very prompt, very in tune with my needs, and look forward to teaming with him to make great strides this year.

Signing up with NBI Fitness is probably one of the best things I could've ever done for myself. Trinnie and Gilbert are great and are currently helping me reach my dream health/body goals. The trainers truly care about their clients and are always pushing me to make sure I am doing all that is necessary to lose weight, tone up and build a healthy life style for myself. They also tell you what you should and should not be eating according to your fitness goal. Most importantly, I work and go to school full time therefore, it is difficult to work out with such a hectic schedule, BUT they literally make sure to work with whatever times works best for me even if its going out of their way. The cost, overall results and amazing customer service is really worth it and would recommend NBI Fitness to anyone who wants to tone up, lose weight, and get on track with their fitness goals.

I came to Boston in 2012 as a grad student, not inspired to exercise, eat healthy, or focus on my well-being. I knew something was wrong, because I realized I was becoming lethargic, depressed, and uninspired. I gained a lot of weight the year before I came to Boston, weighing up to 180 lbs max. With a 27% body fat and the BMI certainly in the overweight category, I knew I had to do something, but I did not know what, how, or even why I had to exercise. Anna reached out to me one day while I was attempting to work out. She was incredibly genuine and interested in me from the first time she met me. After the first free session, I was hooked. Her personality, her enthusiasm for fitness, and her dedication were apparent from the beginning and made me feel incredibly comfortable. I never felt like I was judged (I couldn't even do one push-up), and I knew she had my health interests as hers and had been incredibly patient with the progress I've made. That was two years ago. Fast forward to today, I am hovering around 15% body fat, I weigh 142 lbs, and the BMI is in the normal category. Now I can do multiple sets and repetitions of push-ups. I am still with Anna and plan to be as long as we are both in the same city, which is a testament in how every session, I feel inspired to take care of my health. I am much stronger, fit, leaner, and confident than I was two years ago. In those two years with Anna, she had taught me one thing that exceeds in importance any sit-up, push-up, or pull-up I do: I am in control of my own health. I am certainly not done with my fitness goals. Being fit, stronger, and leaner is a never-ending goal, but knowing Anna is at my side, I can turn my goals into reality. Thank you Anna!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about MFG. I have PCOS and as a result, losing the weight has been tougher than ever. I’ve tried various trainers and other exercise regiments over the years. Nothing worked and nothing could help keep me motivated. Fast forward to me finding MFG. Within a day of posting a search for a trainer, Erika from MFG reached out. Erika was so thoughtful, easy to talk to, and dedicated to setting me up with a trainer that could work best with me. Moreover, my schedule tends to be utterly inconsistent and all over the place. Despite it taking me a couple of month to sign up (I had surgery shortly after talking to Erika), I was so focused on getting my health and fitness back on the track to wellness. Even during my surgery and hospitalization, Erika sent me text messages that gave me motivation and support. Truly, Erika, if you’re reading this, that meant the world to me! Once I got clearance to workout, I was set up with Ashley, who in one word is AWESOME. She has PCOS too, so she’s able to give me tips about eating a clean diet that’s good for PCOS sufferers. On top of that, Ashley is so flexible with what times and days she can come by. As someone who thought they hated to workout, thanks to Ashley, I genuinely look forward to post-workout soreness. She got a girl who works 12+ hour days, to work out 6x a week. In short, i can’t say enough wonderful things about MFG. They’re truly caring, super- knowledgeable, motivating and life-changing!

GeneWorks = Gene works!! Gene is AMAZING! It's rare to find fitness professionals who are passionate about what they do and at the same time actually care about their clients' overall well-being. Gene has been my trainer and my life coach for the past 3 years and I couldn't have asked for a better professional. I am a law enforcemnet officer and although I am active in my field, I put on unnessary weight some years back but since training with him I have lost excess body fat and gained muscle mass, I am now eating well based on his recommendaions and feel like I did when I was in my 20s (I'm now in my 30s). I am in the best shape I have EVER been! I recommend Gene to anyone who is looking for an honest, caring and very professional trainer, life coach or sports nutrition specialist. Thank you GeneWorks!!!

Wes was ready & on time. Asked important questions regarding what our goals were for our son. Coach Wes has lots of patience and according to my son... very motivational. Coming from my teen, I’m confident that Wes will be able to get my son to the next level in a positive and professional manner. Wes is always encouraging and has a vast knowledge of his profession... experienced and committed is hard to find...We are happy we found him!

I have been putting off writing this review because I dont know how to put into words how amazing George is, if I could give him 10 stars I would! In the last half of 2016 and most of 2017 I was dealing with a lot of medical issue that wound up effected my body and muscles a lot (I was always in pain)! I always had some pounds to lose however I was able to work out and keep it under control until 2016 when it all began and I was put on certain meds for almost a year. When I started with George my whole body would ache all the time and I was dealing a lot back issues AND trust issues regarding anything that involved my health including exercise! Not only did he prove that he knew what he was doing he figured out exercises that would not hurt my back but still make it stronger, and anything he didn't know he researched. Since working with George my back pain has decreased significantly, my body hardly hurts anymore, I feel stronger, im able to work out 4 times a week, and I have lost almost 30 pound, all this in less than 6 months (and it would probably be more if I didn't cheat as often as I do). I was not your typical person looking for a trainer to just tone up or lose a few pounds I needed more help than that and he has gone above and beyond expectations!! He tailors my workouts to me, I am never board, he does not except excuses, however truly cares! He is extremely knowledgeable and always strives to be better and you can tell he truly loves what he does, I cannot recommend him enough!!

I am not the easiest person to train - my schedule is all over the place, I've been yo yo-ing back and forth between weight loss and gain for years and I've been emotionally overwhelmed due to my work load .... however, Zhi is not only flexible with our training, but can get me to move beyond my daily hangups and focus on my health goals. He challenges me every session and structures workouts that lets me see the progress I am making. He is patient and kind, but never loses sight of our mission. Zhi is also very knowledgeable about physiology so that we can always assess how to best work my body and prevent injury. I wish I had the time and resources to work with him everyday. I recommend him to anyone looking to jumpstart their fitness or perfect their physique.

Brent is a good communicator and has always been very professional in his demeanor, he is always on time and easy to schedule appointments with. I was a little nervous when I went to my first appointment, but have gotten much more comfortable over time. Brent is very present in the room, he gives me a lot of eye-contact, and shows genuine compassion. While it can sometimes be difficult, the work that I do with Brent has allowed me to get to know myself better, and has significantly improved the relationships I value most in my life. His office, while very simple and unadorned, has a warm atmosphere, and is very conveniently located. I have found my work with Brent to be very valuable, and highly recommend him as a coach.

Pierre is a total professional. He knows about cardio, strength and flexibility, also he understands injuries and how to get you back on your feet fast after a slip on the snow and ice. He is quite creative; he came up with a "boxing" routine that keeps me working out hard and feeling motivated. He will always "tweak" the workout to keep you interested. Very motivating to work with Pierre, who always coaches and trains in a very positive, warm way. Always on time, Pierre is a trainer who goes well beyond training...he refers to nutritionists when necessary, always thinking of what his client needs. I highly recommend Pierre!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.  

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
