After 35 years of travel and entertaining for my prior business responsibilities, I retired early and decided that my first goal was to get into better shape. I investigated a number of personal trainers in the area and contacted references provided by Chitown Trainer before engaging them. The peronal references were all spectacular. My personal experience has been great so far. I am well on my way to achieving my fitness and post-retirement lifestyle goals with the help of my trainer. He pushes me forward in my workouts and offers positive encouragement during our periodic progress reviews. He is always on time and provides a full 60-minute workout, after which I am both physically exhausted and mentally refreshed. If something such as heavy traffic results in him being delayed, he sends text messages so that I can keep my other commitments moving forward. Very reliable, professional and knowledgeable trainer, and an important part of my weekly routine!
Patrick was my personal trainer for about half a year. I started knowing him in a group Core class he taught. His class was tough but fun! I was so impressed that I decided to further my training with him. As a personal trainer, Patrick understands the difference in each trainee. He first assessed my baseline capability and defined the goals. He then carefully designed sessions that would help me meet my goals. Patrick chose a variety of exercises that pushed me beyond my comfort zone but were still manageable and safe. During the training, Patrick monitored my movement closely. He not only made prompt corrections of my mistakes but also provided many suggestions on how to make my exercise more effective. In addition, he shared knowledge on diet and other helpful fitness information. Patrick is a good role model of fitness. He exercises daily and eats healthy. As an instructor, he cares about his students. As an individual, he has a warm personality and a good sense of humor. I would highly recommend Patrick to anybody who is looking for an excellent personal trainer!
This is my first time hiring a personal trainer and I am very satisfied with my PT sessions and progress. Raheem is professional and aware of the steps his clients need to take to become healthier and fit. I would recommend anyone who is determined to get fit to hire RG!
JT got me back in to working out and help me stay consistent at it. I would be nowhere near where I am today without him. He helped me learn so many new workouts and hooked me up with a meal plan so I finally started eating healthy. All around awesome dude I would consider him a good friend now and more than just a personal trainer. I would suggest him to anyone and everyone
I started training with Dan at HiFi Fitness for straightforward reasons. After 2 sedentary winters in Chicago, I had gained nearly 30 pounds while taking "time off the gym" to start my business. I was the heaviest I'd ever been and, even though I was an athlete by nature, I'd only dropped 10 pounds on my own and knew I needed help reaching my goals. That's when I started working with Dan. From the start, Dan emphasized that we were a team working toward my goals together and that the changes I wanted to see in my body required my commitment beyond the three hours we spent every week together. I like that he leverages technology to regularly measure daily progress. Every exercise is keyed in, and detailed notes for each movement goes into his iPad - and I can see my results behind a secure login website. We're only a few weeks into our regimen, but I already feel stronger, and my pants are starting to feel loose. Working with Dan is not just about making changes to your body though. It's also about learning the discipline of movement and having the mental focus to push past the limits you think you have. Dan is a meticulous technician when it comes to form. He isn't a trainer who will just show up and stand over you counting reps. Every movement is intentional and he'll make sure your form is right. He explains how those small tweaks make all the difference. He understands when to get in your face and when to take a softer approach, and he is as committed as I am in helping me reach my goals.
Raven is by the far the best personal trainer I have ever met. When I first started with him, I was 250 lb and lost 25 lb within 2 months (meeting only twice a week...when I wasn't traveling for work, which by the way he was very willing to work around). His system draws from a lifetime of experience and a PhD in Kinesiology. He custom designed a specific exercise regime for my body type that was shocking effective. It is hard to describe how much progress I made. I did not expect the results I got. His insight into fat reduction and strength conditioning blew my mind. I learned more in a few sessions with Raven than I had in my entire life. Working with him, I realized how ineffective my past exercise experience was (I worked so hard for a lot fewer results). Not to suggest Raven won't push you hard (in fact, he'll push you to your limit), but it's incredible how he makes the session so fun and fast. For example, in the past, I avoided a "difficult" exercise because I was afraid of hurting myself or vomiting. With Raven's guidance, I was given the courage to go further than I ever had (without evening noticing!). When I threw up for the first time, we celebrated together! It was a rite of passage and I am very proud of testing my limits. If you want to lose fat in a sustainable way, Raven's whole body health philosophy will take you the distance. It's not a gimmick and it takes hard work, but he will get you to your desired weight and body shape faster than anyone out there. Don't sign up if you don't want to put in the work, because Raven expects your best effort. But if you are committed to his diet and exercise program and want to laugh a lot along the way, he's your guy. (And don't worry about your motivation...Rav's an expert motivator and has a way of energizing your desire to get better every day).
Josh is great to work with for your fitness needs. My husband and I hired him for at home personal training. He uses customized exercises to help my husband and I reach our fitness goals. Additionally, he has a great positive energy that helps us get in the right mindset. His educational background is a plus as he can tell you the "why" behind your needs and exercises which I greatly appreciate. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a personal trainer.
After discussing my fitness goals, Elijah explained the general outlines of his plans and expectations. His style is simple and easy. I think most personal trainers are very knowledgable and very good at what they do. Elijah stood apart, however, from other trainers I have worked with in the past. He is particularly commendable because he is personable, genuine and fun. He also made it clear that I had to do my part as recommended by him, such as eating habits. He is also not afraid to talk about finances. I would recommend anybody to at least try a few sessions with him. You will know what I am talking about.
Tricia does an excellent job! I am only on my second week with her but I did lose 6 lbs the first week by working out with her and doing what I needed to do on my own concerning working out and what I ate. I would definitely recommend her for your personal training needs.
Chaun has been training me for over one month and I can say that I am loving the results. I have become stronger, toned and have lost a good percentage of body fat. Chaun is a great personal trainer. The workouts are great and is never a routine. Chaun is also great on giving me advise on what foods to eat to help me reach my goals faster.
I never had a personal trainer before, but knew I needed help and motivation to get healthier. Through Thumbtack, I received a quote from John at MOR Athletic. The very next day, over the consultation, we went over the scheduling details, payment and my goals. John was very nice as he answered all of my questions and told me what he could bring to the table as my trainer. We decided on a 3 month trial period since it was a good amount of time to see if this was a good fit for me. Aside from the reasonable pricing, the best part of MOR Athletic is that John comes to me for my sessions. After a long day at work, it's extremely convenient to be trained at home! I would recommend MOR Athletic to those who would like to be healthier at their own pace and for a good cost!
Tiffany is one of the best trainers I've seen. From the first day training with her she made me feel welcomed :)
your personal trainers are very well versed in what they do. they give you exercises that are just enough to push you past your personal limits. it's very nice to have them come to your house.
He’s everything you NEED in a trainer. Imagine being out of shape and over weight then BOOM you come across CC and he changes your whole life and you start accomplishing goals you thought were impossible.
Best personal trainer - EVER! I've noticed a huge difference in my overall endurance and strength after training with Gary. I'm noticing more definition and my clother are fitting better.
Jessica is a wonderful personal trainer. I appreciate that she comes to my home and is flexible with my busy work schedule. She incorporates weight training, yoga, Pilates, and high and low intensity cardio. She pushes me appropriately and always seems to know just what I need!
Steve is one of the best trainers. I'll tell you why from my personal experience with him & how he is such a great trainer. Steve, as my trainer, helped me in loosing 50 lbs & obtaining a 18% body fat (something that I couldn't even imagine being in my mid 30s). Steve also helped me gain more self confidence & self worth through the process which lead to a holistic, healthier, & happier me! Not only did he lead me to these great successes, I know many others he has lead to success as well. He is the best personal trainer no matter what your goals are, who you are, & what boundaries you may have. Steve joins you on your journey to becoming a better you. He is extremely motivating, inspiring, & great at keeping you accountable. He will push you to accomplish more than you could do on your own. Because he has extensive education & experience, you can feel safe letting him push you past your own boundaries in order to reach that healthier &happier you! I have to mention, I have tried so many trainers & I am highly critical of them. I would say 90% are bad, 9% are good, & 1% are excellent. Steve is one of the 1% of excellent trainers. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Steve!
I have had only 1 class with him, but he is easy going explins everything and helped me understand why. Then he went on to charm the women in mangment of the apartmen and they want him to offer classes.
Chris was my personal trainer for 3mos. Due to leaving town, I had to forgo my sessions. Chris packed motivation, many years of experience and industry know how and a very caring attitude that tailored the perfect workout for me. I highly recommend Chris as a personal workout trainer.
Kevin is great personal trainer. I am working out with him for almost a year. Every workout is different and challenging. He pushes me hard and i can see the difference in my body and my strength. He is also a great funny guy and it is a pleasure to train with him. I highly recommend him.
Brent has been my personal trainer for 3 years now. I had never worked one-on-one with a trainer before I met Brent. I started with just once a week, then twice a week and now three times a week. If it were not for Brentâs knowledge, encouragement and patience, I would have given up long ago. He took the time to ask and listen regarding my goals and physical limitations. He has constantly tailored my program to help me achieve short term goals, as well as working toward long term goals. He has an encouraging and challenging way about him that has you doing things you never knew you could, and he does not bark or bully you. I never thought I would spend the time or money to work with a personal trainer, but with Brent as my trainer, I cannot imagine stopping. I now live for the challenge!
