Katie is amazing! She helped me set my goals in a realistic way step by step and helped me create a unique routine based on my needs and interests. She really digs deep to understand people individually. I was able to change my lifestyle for good with her holistic approach. She gave me ideas for exercises and recipes to do on my own while meeting with her 3x a week for an intense workout. I’m already feeling the positive impact in my life and seeing the results! Thank you! :)

Mack is nothing but exceptional at his job and an inspiration for me to push myself to the limits. From his training, I was able to lose close to 10 pounds, and, more importantly, obtained great health benefits (like lower cholesterol which had been an issue in the past). He not only took patience and care to teach the different exercises but also went above and beyond by making sure I was engaging in a healthy lifestyle at all fronts. Bottom line, I recommend Mack without reservations.

My husband and I have been training with Gil & Trinnie since June now and we continue to do so! They are so good at what they do - we are seeing results in both weight loss & getting stronger. They are very flexible with our fluctuating schedules and tailor the work outs to our bodies. It's hard work and they do push us as needed but are also caring if it's just too much for us sometimes . Both Trinnie & Gil are so enjoyable to work with and helpful with diet as well. They've changed our mindset and lifestyle for the better and highly recommend anyone in the area that needs help working out, on weight lossz, strength training, etc. They're the best!!

I'm not one to write reviews.... ever... (because I never have time) but on this occasion, I decided to MAKE time because my results (with Mobile Fitness, specifically Erica Straub, my trainer) have been, life changing and it would be a beyond selfish to not share. I initially contacted Mobile Fitness via an app and the follow up was instant and consistent. I needed to do something different as I was in a rut and I was aligned to the most experienced, understanding, thorough, knowledgeable and on-point trainer of my life, Erica. This girl is AMAZING and changed my life! My goal was to shed the pounds, shred my body and most importantly, learn to eat (healthy) without depriving myself or my lifestyle. I'm a challenge because I have been yo-yo dieting for years and doing fitness competitions (in a very unhealthy manner) so I needed a flexible trainer, who understood my challenges, to meet me at 5am, in my home, 3 days a week. Words can't express what Erica has done for me! She has been incredible. She has helped transform my mind and body. I am stronger, more toned, make wiser food choices and have not had to give up my wine!!!! I am obsessed with my trainer who, after only 6 months, I now consider a friend.

I have been working with Toni for almost two years and Diet Alternatives is a 'real life' program. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle. When you read through the literature, put it into practice and speak with Toni - it just makes sense and it works.Just like all of us with weight related issues, she talks the talk and walks the walk everyday. I have been a yo-yo dieter since my teenage years and have tried every diet out there. With Toni, I have lost the majority of the weight and although I am still a work in progress,Toni's one-on-one approach and Diet Alternatives has made the difference.

I contacted Cody after reading the many rave reviews this year. I wanted to shed a few pounds and just feel good overall and Cody kept me highly motivated! He not only was always on time, he made every session so unique and kept me interested always! He had a ton of fun exercises for me to do and he also sent me numerous recipe ideas and reading on paleo diet plans and easy-to-follow healthy eating habits. I was just happy to get out of my sedentary lifestyle! My husband has also contacted him and is going to begin training with him after i filled his ears with how good Cody was! We couldn't be happier with his commitment towards our well being and his dedication!

I completely, wholeheartedly recommend Jeanine. It was my first time working with a coach and, of the 15 or so coaches that I did intro calls with, I connected right off the bat with Jeanine's warmth, intuition and understanding. She's changed my life. In our time together, I grew more than I could've imagined in just a few months. I relearned how to connect with my intuition and to act on it. I nurtured a profound, deeper trust in myself and the universe. I reopened myself to the world to be the giver that I am at my core. And I found the courage to speak my truth and step into my full bigness and wholeness of being. Her use of guided visualization is so powerful and has opened up worlds and tools that I will use for the rest of my life. Most importantly, I feel that Jeanine approaches her clients as more than just clients but as humans that she deeply cares about and roots for. I feel unconditionally supported and cherished by her. Jeanine is incredible and I can't recommend her enough!

I have worked with my fair share of trainers, let me tell you! Usually, every few months I will start working with a new trainer, I will buy a number of sessions, finish them out, and then start with a new trainer a few months later. Maybe I am picky, but I usually find something wrong with each trainer and get sick of them. That what always the case, until I started working out with Rob! Rob is enthusiastic, motivating, and genuinely good at what he does. He appreciates hard work and is willing to work hard for you in return by giving you the best assistance and instruction you can imagine. I have been working with Rob for awhile now, and I cannot express how happy I am with my results. With Rob's help, I have lost a significant amount of weight and inches, while simultaneously building muscle and getting toned. I know I am getting close to my goal and I cannot wait to rock a bikini this summer! Rob has changed my whole outlook on working out. He has turned me into a person who actually looks forward to going to the gym everyday! Who would have thought?!

I talked with many coaches, therapists, and trainers. Aaron and WellThrive Elite are the best. Aaron helped me so much. He knows a lot about many things and helped me in many areas of my life. He really listens but also gives good practical coaching. WellThrive Elite helped me with fitness and coaching to lose weight, tone up, manage stress, and look better for dating and self confidence. So many types of fitness that I was never bored. He also coached me to figure out who is the right person for me to date and which career I would like. Such in depth information of different careers. What a life saver. Best personal trainer and best life coach for so many things. Thumbtack seems like a good site. But more than one coach told me that Thumbtack charges the coach a high fee when the customer messages the coach. I would just call him. I highly recommend. Here is his number: 646-535-4384. He talked to me for over an hour without charging me. He talks a lot, but all good information and definitely worth it!

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!

Kevin Burns has a depth of knowledge, compassion and understanding that I haven’t seen and or experienced in a long time. He gave me lots of personal advice to help me get “unstuck” at a time I needed it most. With his advice I was able to turn things around. His words came from a deep place and has helped me “change course” in many areas of my life. He’s warm and very professional and has a good heart. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking assistance. He’s an amazing ‘Life Coach’ ...Keith Gitens

I was initially skeptical about "life" coaching. Why would I need it if everything seemed “ok"? On my journey with Eli I discovered that “ok” is acceptable, but abundance is a conscious choice and there for the taking - if I wanted it. And not only did I want it - I found it. Eli is incredibly smart and intuitive, creative and able to think out of the box yet very structured in his approach. I felt his experience in professional sports was unusual and refreshing- and greatly benefitted our interaction. I liked the elegance of his thinking process, his flexibility and his ability to listen and ask the right questions. Many times over, he challenged me to think outside of my comfort zone. Identifying and addressing certain issues and hence developing strategies together was an amazing process which made me feel empowered and in control.

During the six weeks that I worked with Melissa, she was a constant sounding board, making herself available whenever I had questions or needed motivation. She provided ongoing inspiration and really tapped into the issues specific to my current lifestyle. I've struggled with my weight for the better part of my life, and Melissa was the first person I've encountered who cut through all the noise from the fad diets I'd looked to as an answer in the past. She helped me find what worked for me, and provided tools I'll continue using into the future, for not only myself, but for my family. I'd highly recommend Melissa as a Health Coach to anyone who wants to feel better about their life. Amazing!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
