Joe from Life Work did an outstanding job with my resume and cover letter. He took the time to deliver a really enjoyable to read and at the same time formal resume that matched exactly my personality and work ethic. He knows how to write and is aware of the recruitment system we have nowadays. I'll recommend him to my family members and friends with no doubts. Thanks!

Transitioning from a collegiate athlete to a working professional with a desk job took a huge toll on my overall health. It was tough to find the motivation to get to the gym after a long day at work. I started working with Jonas about three years ago and he changed everything. He's an incredible trainer, coach, and person. I highly recommend F.A.M.E. Fitness!

Great value and longevity in her skills; especially her advice. Laura is the real deal. I was skeptical but I went with my gut after meeting her. As a grad student, my life was a mess and I can say now I’m still organized which may be a miracle.

Thomas has been and continues to be much more than just a highly trained personal fitness trainer! He's a life coach, he's an ear to listen, and a friend to lift you up. Extremely kind and adaptable to your fitness goals. I put my complete trust in him to lead me on my fitness journey. His methods and programs are suited to you. His knowledge of the body and its mechanics, muscle strength, nutrition, and overall fitness knowledge is amazing. Making sure you get the most out of each and every movement he spots and corrects placement, motions, etc... so that your doing exercises/drills correctly. Genuinely interested in your wellbeing and success! He humbly states that everything achieved is because of me; and there is truth and wisdoms in that; but I can't imagine ever being able to achieve them on my own! Enough can't be said about Thomas! I'm very grateful for him, to have found him, and to know him! He recently told me, "Life is happening FOR YOU! Life is never happening TO YOU!" You want a change in your life, become the change! Get with this guy!

I found Lisa through her website after quite a bit of searching. I knew what I wanted to accomplish; I just didn't know how to get it done. Nutritional advice, personal training, and motivation is what I was searching for and exactly what I found in Lisa! She is encouraging, upbeat, and always focused on my development. The workouts are fun, varied and always challenging. As I have made lifestyle changes toward being healthier - I feel that I have a true partner in Lisa. She has worked with me on so many different muscle groups and overall cardio fitness my health, body and spirit are all stronger. Each time we go through something new she demonstrates just what a strong and effective teacher she is both my modeling the exercise and patiently giving feedback until my form improves. She is such a strong teacher that many of the exercises she has taught me I now can do at home. Lisa has a variety of videos that she has available for those in-between work outs along with those times I can't make my twice weekly workouts. Simply put - a joy to work with and a complete health coach. I feel nothing less than grateful to have found her.

Nekeidra was amazing to work with. She helped update my resume, explaining the different formats required for online applications vs. email applications. She also coached me on tailoring my resume for each and every different job I applied for. She was supportive and helped me through my entire search process. I truly enjoyed working with her!

I find SHEpherd's guidance very useful in my current career. Dina gives me advice on navigating usual hurdles and some not so common hurdles. I find having someone coach me who actually has a successful career outside of "career coaching" to be a great benefit. Her career experiences help me make better choices. I'm looking forward to continued support from Dina and SHEpherd Consulting. JO

I sought out a coach because I was looking for guidance on ways to improve my career. I was experiencing a lack of fulfillment and needed help defining my professional goals and strategies for achieving them. Chris and I were able to set up our first meeting within one week of our initial call which I appreciated. We have had two meetings so far, and I can tell already that he is very astute. He helped me define my core challenges and goals within the first hour and we're already working on a plan for moving forward. He is personable and very encouraging. I would absolutely recommend him.

Debbie of Body of Light provided the best yoga experience I have ever had. I have moved to the West Coast and unfortunately can not find another teacher to match her knowledge, experience or insightful teaching style. Debbie creates the perfect environment in her classes and after the practice I always felt light, rejuvenated and joyful. Her classes offer a complete yoga experience. She is intuitive and not only asks, but knows just what her students need. I have had private sessions where Debbie has helped me rehab various physical ailments in just a few sessions and taught me how to stay healthy on my own. Debbie’s yoga immersion, I can honestly say, was life changing. I completed her yoga teacher training and am often complimented by my students on my teaching style. The entire process deepened my practice immensely. It was rewarding in so many ways. I can not recommend the unique and wonderful experience of Body of Light more.

Katrina is a fantastic life coach! She has a very inviting and genuine personality. I felt comfortable talking to her almost immediately in our first session. Big or small, I feel like I can talk about anything that's going on in my life with Katrina. She always has time to "go into the weeds" with me and help understand what I am thinking. Not too long ago Katrina guided me through a major career change. I felt stuck where I was, and Katrina helped me to breakdown what I was going through and figure out what my true passions are. She got me to focus on what was important and we set goals that were both measurable and achievable. I am so much happier now, and I don't think I could have gotten here without Katrina's guidance. I would highly recommend Katrina as a life coach to anyone looking!

Meeting Bill Ryan was the answer to my prayers. I was in a rut and wasn't happy about how I looked and was usually tired and forever procrastinating about doing exercise. I would walk and stop or watch TV exercise programs and become bored took Pilates , too costly. There was always an excuse..... Some changes in life boost ones incentive, and mine was our daughter's upcoming wedding. I needed to feel & look good, and, mostly wanted her to be proud of me I desperately also wanted to change to a lifetime lifestyle.. My nephew joined Snap Fitness and loves it, he sold me on getting up the nerve to call and find out what they were all about and then go for a visit. I told him I really wanted someone to work with me individually because I was afraid of the machine and all the requirements of working them etc. When I called Snap Fitness I spoke with Bill Ryan. He couldn't have been more friendly, polite, patient and understanding. I told him my downfall was not sticking to plans. . He said he thought he could turn my habit around by proper exercise that could boost my metabolism therefore giving me more energy and eventually help me gain a better body image and boost my confidence. He arranged an appointment and we met the following day. He made me feel comfortable instantly because of his friendliness, a great smile and caring attitude.. He is a picture of strength and is mild mannered as a kitty cat After him showing me around and what you could do per machine. I decided I liked what he had shown during my visit, what I could learn to do and what plan he had in mind for me. I knew I could benefit from this Trainer and his expertise. He instantly made me feel more energized just being in his company made me ready to build up my confidence.. I also told him I needed to ask my husband and would get back to him. In essence I told my husband I wanted to do this for me to have a better quality of life and live a long life and also for our daughters wedding in 2014. When my husband agreed to my request I made an appointment with Bill. I knew Bill took his job seriously being a Trainer. It didn't take me long to gain respect for him, therefore I was going to listen and learn because I knew his time was precious and also he had other clients that needed his assistance. I worked with him on a regular basis trying to learn the settings of the machines or the amount of weights I should use or the time it took me to get it all accomplished. Bill really helped me, always encouraging me to try again and telling me I would get better the more I did it.. He has such patience and charm, quick wit and really knows his craft. He never made me feel inadequate in any way. I did this routine on a consistent basis until Bill felt comfortable enough for me to be on my own.. Once the magic happened and finally clicked with me I felt like this was the best experience being able to show him all he taught me paid off and now I was capable of being on my own., However, he assured and there were times... Bill Ryan is a Professional Trainer a fine individual who would be a valuable asset to anyone who seeks one on one training, he's the man you need to hire.He will motivate you and make your life turnaround.. He did mine and I will always be grateful for his guidance and friendship. Thank You Bill!

At the age 47 and a little out of shape, I needed to get in top physical shape for a police academy. (In New Jersey the age limit for police officers is 35, but there is no age limit for correction and sheriffs dept)...... so I new if I wanted this job in corrections, I had to be ready, and if anybody has been to any police academy, you know it's a para military atmosphere. Screaming at you from day one, not caring about your feelings. Their only concerns is that you will be physically and mentally strong in law enforcement environment. The first Day I walked in, I talked to Bob about my mental and physical weaknesses, and he told me not to worry, and to listen to everything he had to say moving forward. I literally felt at ease from that moment on. Now it wasn't always easy, Bob pushed my mental and physical abilities beyond I thought I could ever reach, and after 6 months of running, sprinting,spinning,rowing,pull-ups, push-ups, weight training, jump roap, etc., I found myself in the best physical and mental shape of my life. Bob is more than just a trainer, he is a trainer, a life coach, a friend, (and even an enemy, lol when he had to be). I am proud to say that on July 12, 2016 I graduated as a New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission corrections officer, cycle 29 and have been working in the jail ever since, and I couldn't be happier about my new career in law enforcement, but most of all, I couldn't of been happier about the choice I made walking into Bob's studio, because I know I could have never done it on my own. Sometimes in life we need a little help to get to the next level, and that's why I made the investment in myself to get to the next level with Bob Pelsang!!!!! Sincerely, S.C.O. T. Venezio

I was going through a period in life where I almost thought about committing suicide. I really didn't know what to do with myself, and felt like I don't matter in society. I didn't know where to turn to. After hearing about Marcus, he taught me, how important I really am. The way he speaks, makes me feel like I've been missing out on something. And I have! Now I am truly happy, and thanks to Marcus, I and well prepared to deal with this game we called life. #ThanksChrisophermarc

Karin is an excellent encourager and supporter of whatever changes you choose to make in your life. For me it was weight loss, but that included some specific lifestyle choices. I lost 20 lbs. in 6 months and I am convinced it was because of her support and encouragement to do what I wanted to do and knew I needed to do. She didn't allow me to be critical of things I didn't do, but encouraged me to start from now and go on, improving little by little each week. I decided what I wanted help with, then she was available to hold me accountable to the changes I wanted to make.

I hosted a Jewelry, Makeover and Personal Shopping get-to-gether at my home a few weeks ago with Ms. Crawford. Ms. Crawford arrived extra early to ensure everything was set up beautifully, so if my first customer arrived early ...she'd be ready! What impressed me about Ms. Crawford was the distinct personal attention she gave each customer, she went over and above with her suggestions and recommendations...which clearly put smiles on everyone's faces. Ms Crawford was extremely professional, friendly, honest, did not rush the customers, and really took time to understand their needs. After my get-to-gether, I received rave reviews from all who attended;with requests to utilize her services as their own personal shopper and makeover coach for upcoming events and seasonal wardrobe planning. There is nothing I would have changed about this day... I highly recommend Ms. Crawford to customize a unique image for anyone seeking a change. BW- Lehigh Valley, PA

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.
