Working with Angela has been an enlightening experience, one that has allowed me to clarify my goals and learn how to work effectively toward them. When I started working with Angela in January 2015, I felt scattered. I was allowing others to dictate how my time was spent. I wanted to find time to lead a healthier life, and yet I felt that the mundane tasks associated with my job as a professor--committee meetings or grading--generated too many obligations. Five months later, my conversations with Angela have helped me to understand the importance of scheduling time for everyday activities that bring me joy. Angela has greatly contributed to a new balance between my personal and professional life. I have found Angela to be a caring professional who seeks solutions tailored to your lifestyle. I am learning to prioritize exercise, healthy food--and writing, the professional task that I most enjoy.

I've only been working with George for a couple of weeks but so far the experience has been great. He was fast to reach out on Thumbtack and from there everything has been seamless. I was not sure what to expect as I've never had a personal trainer but George walked me through everything. Everything he does seems customized to your needs and the workouts are definitely intense. He knows what he's doing!

I could not be more happy about Body Transformations. When I started, I was not flexible at all in my ankles, hips, and shoulders. Through a systematized assessment, I was told about these problem areas immediately during the first session. In fact, drastic improvements were made on the very first day through massaging the muscles in those areas and re-assessing the exact same movements. I was amazed. The range of motion improvement was not a fraction of an inch which could have been mis-measurement. The improvement was over 3 inches on my left shoulder and 2 inches on my right shoulder. You have to try this systematized assessment for yourself. Now that was just the first day. Since then, I have been coming to my convenient appointments regularly. I have lost inches off my waist and gained muscle mass in my arms, legs, chest, shoulders and neck, and I wasn't super thick to start with. My Body Mass Index (BMI) is consistently measured and improves each month. I appreciate Anthony's challenging workouts that are always fresh and upbeat. It keeps your body out of a dull routine and your mind interested in the education that is provided during each workout. The level of knowledge shows and each certification earned is integrated into my workout progression. I have been an athlete all my life and even in college no coach spent the type of time and effort so that I knew why I was doing an exercise. I learn what benefits the exercise produces, and how the current exercise will fit into my future exercise plan. I will remain a customer for life. I know it has helped me look great in a suit, be fit in my activities, and make friends in the studio that I can really relate to.

Kenny Mack and Empowered Recreation are fantastic! . ER is really more than just a "place to workout". It is a community of people who encourage each other to be the best they can be. The bootcamps challenge you to work hard and get results! The personal training with Coach Mack helps you focus on specific goals and train smart. I recommend ER if you are looking for a community of positive people who are going to keep you accountable and coming back for more!

I had Matt Wines for a trainer last fall. The only reason I had to stop with him was because of my personal life. He's very knowledgable and considerate. His knowledge went beyond just working out. He's also very knowledgable about nutrition and helped me with some bad eating habits. He was always on time and very pleasant to work with. He was willing to work with my busy schedule. I would recommend him as a trainer.

I have seen Lotus a few times and had a tarot reading. She really cares about her work and makes you feel comfortable. I came to her depressed and confused about my direction in life and after, I had more motivation to get things done and I know which goals I want to focus on. I absolutely recommend her if you have issues in your past you want to resolve and move on from. I chose her instead of a traditional therapist because she gets you into deep relaxation to heal your inner child and help change your patterns. You will feel better after the first session!

I started training with Jessica in December (2014) and I am crazy about her! I have never had good luck with personal trainers, they never seemed to sincerely care about me and my success. But Jessica is truly one of a kind. She is excited about the workout, and that is contagious! She modifies the workout based on my capabilities and never ever makes me feel bad or like a failure for needing the modifications. She sets the bar extremely high, expects you to clear it and encourages you the entire time. I find myself wanting to work harder and push myself harder just to make her proud! She is the best, you won't be sorry when you sign up with her.

    Here’s a small background about myself to provide a little extra validity to my review on Balance Performance Fitness: I am a certified Athletic Trainer and am familiar with body mechanics, injury prevention, nutrition, health & wellness, exercise, etc. Ben worked with me consistently for about two months - still is involved with my workout routines whenever a little extra help is needed. Anyways, for those of you who are looking for a personal trainer, I highly recommend choosing Balance Performance Fitness to work with Ben. Overall he is a great coach who focuses on what your individual needs are specifically. He is able to challenge you in a positive way, and give you direct answers/reasons to any questions you have concerning your health or goals. Unlike other personal trainers that I’ve worked with where they either talk in circles, or use the same workout plan for every client; Ben strives in building a good rapport with you to be sure he is able to meet your expectations on your personal fitness goals. My experience having Ben as a coach was phenomenal. I have always struggled with putting in the work to strengthen my lower body - wether it was just pure lack of focus, no motivation, and just out of ideas for workouts that really blasted my muscles. While working with Ben I was able to overcome all of that and hit new PR’s (personal records) in all aspects. From front squat, backsquat. Deadlifts, to bench press, pull-ups etc. you name it. I have been the strongest I have ever been after just having Ben as my coach for two months, pushing me and finding ways to target my specific goals. So again, if you want to hit your fitness goals and have been struggling with them, I suggest just take that next step and at least talk to Ben to see if he will be a good fit for you. One word of advice though, if you do hire him, be sure you are ready to put in the work. There are no such thing as ‘excuses’ when it comes down to training with Ben and I think that is what makes him a remarkable personal trainer.

    I loved having Cara as my nutritional Coach. She was not only knowledgeable with nutrition and workouts, she is passionate about it as well. She genuinely cares how her clients are doing on their program, and if there needs to be any adjustments she changes them quickly! I would recommend Cara to anyone who needs some fitness coaching.

    Crystal was simply the best!! She was organized, thoughtful, and patient. Her careful attention to details and leadership of a professional staff ensured that our wedding reception was perfect!! The food was spectacular and its presentation was beautiful; we continue to receive compliments weeks later. Crystal was very helpful for many months leading up the reception and bringing my vision to life. She is very positive and willing to go the extra mile.

    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.
