About The Body Workout

hired 8 times on Thumbtack

I offer in-home personal training and post-rehab training, bridal and bikini boot camp near south location/lakefront.

The Body Workout works with the beginner to the advanced exerciser. I have a masters in exercise physiology and many of my trainers have a degree in fitness. We also work with clients with special conditions, from heart disease to post-physical therapy.

I love to train those who are 300, 400 and 500-plus pounds and who are afraid and don't know where to start.

    Hey Everyone,
    If you're looking for a Personal Trainer, you have to contact The Body Workout. I say this because after numerous quotes and texts, I found Sheila. I did a mini workout today to see if she met my needs and boy did she exceed my expectations! She know fitness and has the knowledge to get me where I want to be in my fitness quest. I anticipate great results with her as my trainer!

    Shelia runs a wonderful program.
    She works out the whole body and you really feel good after the workout. If any you have any issues, she will focus on them. She also works with problems, like knees or back. Shelia, is on time and does not miss workouts. I think she is wonderful. P.S. You will sweat!

  • 5/5 stars

    I've been a client of The Body Workout for five years. Sheila comes to my home, and has designed an exercise program for me that keeps me motivated, and is fun and flexible. Because of her expertise in exercise physiology she has been able to address my rotator cuff tendonitis and bad knees, which predated my working with her, as well as rehabbed a broken wrist and my back after surgery.This is such a bonus in a personal trainer, as it means that she knowledgeably adapts our exercise routine specifically for me.

    Sheila is also very informed about nutrition, and has given me a number of excellent suggestions about nutrition in general, websites to use as resources, and even some specific recipes.

    I absolutely recommend Sheila without hesitation as an excellent personal trainer.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I do continuing education classes every year and I read fitness journals once a month. My favorite convention is the Midwest Mania Expo in October in Chicago.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. You don't have to pay for a huge package, you can pay once a month or every two weeks. I try to work what works best for you. The Body Workout takes all forms of payment: cash, checks, credit cards and quick pay from Chase Bank.

Group personal training is $40 per hour per person a session. It's cheaper to train with a buddy or a group. The first session is FREE!

The Bridal and Bikini Bootcamp classes start in April at 39th and Cottage Grove - Mandrake Park Track. The cost is $80 for 6 weeks.
