I've met with Lucas twice, once for a massage and once for a personal training consult. He is very professional, and is flexible with my busy schedule.Oct 7, 2016Verified
I've been training with Lucas for about a year. I am 53-years-old, and had absolutely no experience with working out when I started. I was nervous and self conscious, but Lucas, with his easy going personality and great sense of humor, made me feel comfortable right away. I've had a few physical issues over the year, including back and knee problems, and Lucas has helped tremendously with his knowledge and expertise. He has been flexible when I've needed to change my scheduled sessions, and has expertly adjusted my training based upon my health at different times. I know it sounds corny, but working with Lucas has honestly changed my life! I feel so much healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and am a lot stronger than I was when I started. Making it to that first session was the hard part, but I'm so glad I stuck with it! Best decision I ever made! I highly recommend Lucas as a personal trainer!Sep 21, 2016
I worked with Lucas for almost a year before moving from Illinois. He was such a personable, smart, funny, and responsible trainer. He was attentive and positive, and he knew when to safely push me to lift more and do more. I always felt super successful after a session with him. (And worn out in all the right ways!) Now we will be working long-distance - my weight training with Lucas got me hooked on powerlifting and Lucas will be helping me plan and train properly with a goal of competing in the spring. In addition, I had one massage with him before leaving the state and it was one of the best I have ever received. You are a super talented guy, Mr. Crawford. :)Sep 20, 2016
I worked with Lucas for a couple months, and I absolutely loved it! I was pushed to do exercises I never thought I could do and lift weights I never thought I could lift. Most importantly, I learned correct technique and saw progress within myself week after week. Even though I was pushed to work hard and left dripping sweat, our sessions were very comfortable and relaxed. He will never make you feel bad about yourself, awkward when trying new exercises, or stupid for not knowing basics. He breaks everything down and is very patient! Lucas was very flexible with my schedule and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend reaching out to him! Thank you Lucas for making a positive impact on my life!Aug 1, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I don't have any extra membership fees or long-term contracts. Training or massage therapy sessions can be bought individually or in packs. Clients are free to stop training any time you like, but I do appreciate as much advance notice as possible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I will take them through a basic assessment and consultation to get a better idea of their fitness goals and to see if we are a good match for each other. From there, it's just a matter of starting clients at an appropriate level and progressing them at a consistent, safe rate.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?As a trainer, I went through a training program offered at Parkland College in Champaign. I stay as up to date as possible on new science and am always trying to expand my knowledge base. I also attended Parkland College for massage therapy, and have since practiced and honed my skills as to the best of my ability.
