About Workout Partnerz

hired 4 times on Thumbtack

I provide one-on-one personal fitness training to get you in shape and to keep you that way! If you have been wanting to get in shape, what's stopping you? Take it from someone who has "been there; done that!"

I dropped 75 lbs, lowered my body fat from 29% to 8.5%, and made a career change, so I am here to help guide you through the process!

My services are available in-home, plus the following:

* Private gym in Northbrook, and Glenview areas
* Private 30,000-square-foot facility in River North
* Semi Private Gym in Glendale Heights
* Hardcore Gym in Andersonville

All facilities are private or semi private, so there are no crowds and no waiting, with easy parking available. If you prefer, I can come to you. Workout at home in as little as a 10 x 16 area! Get real results in the privacy of your own home! In most cases no additional charges for housecalls!

If you have a home gym or gym where you live, that's great, but if not, I will bring any equipment needed for an overall workout!

I create fun and effective routines to help achieve your goal in a timely manner. I offer a full-service program including nutrition consultation and meal planning, an exercise routine and monthly or weekly goal tracking. I work with weight-loss clients as well as clients who are looking to bulk up and add muscle mass.

For weight loss or general fitness, super sets are incorporated to an hour-long workout. For muscle building, a pyramid strength training workout is used, as well as drop sets and muscle pumping intensity!

All workouts are based on your current fitness level! We can start guns blazing out of the gate or at a slower pace until you build up more strength and endurance! There is no pressure to jump through a flaming hoop, at least not initially!

I work 7 days a week and am committed to helping you achieve your fitness goals and keeping you motivated and challenged!

Meal planning as well as meal preparation and delivery are also available! I am also part of Trainer Made Meals and we have 50 lunch & dinner entrees and 7 breakfast choices! The meals are available for delivery Monday, Wednesday & Friday! For additional meal information or to order message us here!

Now, it is time to get fit!

    I paid for 40 sessions and he stopped after 14 sessions. He did not respond to any of my messages (calls, emails, texts), although I knew he's responding to others, including my friend and on FB. It has been over two weeks and he hasn't refunded for 26 sessions, as requested.

    I would NOT recommend him, as he might rip you off as well.

    Allen in awesome. I've worked out with him two to three days a week for over a year now. He keeps me focused and maintained. As a middle-aged executive, my lifestyle requires this ... and Allen adapts the regimen to my age, bad knees, aches and pains! :)
    Always a pleasure to recommend Allen to anyone looking for structure in their workouts.

  • 5/5 stars

    Allen is awsome! He is able to work with you from whatever level of fitness your beginning at and build and improve from there. Many times I walked into a session feeling down and tired. I always left our workouts feeling better emotionally and physically more energetic!

    I started working with Allen at Workout Partnerz in March of 2014, I weighed 226 pounds and had very little muscle tone. He put me on a two day a week schedule due to my work . I worked out Mondays and Wednesdays with him and on my own on Fridays. He counseled me on my food intake and had me work through multiple exercises, and by August 1, 2014, I was down to 202 and had definition where I had never had definition. I have continued to work out with him to the present time. Allen helps me challenge myself in my workouts and has helped me build back the strength I once had. I continue to work out and loose weight and will eventually reach my goal of 185. Oh by the way I was 68 years old when I started working out with him and I am 70 now.

    Allen has been a great trainer! I wanted to lose weight and that is exactly what is happening! I can totally feel the burn well after the workout and he is great with food tips and advice. He'll even tell you what to eat at a restaurant. I have been trying to lose weight for years and he is making the process much easier with his methods and support. I would recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for an excellent personal trainer.

    In the 6 months that I've been working with Allen I've dropped 30 lbs and am now under 200lbs for the 1st time in over a decade! Allen does a great job at challenging and motivating me to get to that next level. The variety of exercises combined with Allen's stories make the hour fly by, and he comes to my home. It can't get any more convenient than that.

  • 5/5 stars

    Allen has been training me for well over a year now and he comes to my house 4 times a week. I have a hectic schedule and I am only available in the early mornings at 6 am. Before finding Allen, I had a hard time finding a trainer that was willing to work with my schedule until I found Allen who was flexible, understanding and willing to work with my availability. Once we started training together, I was amazed by his effectiveness as a trainer, nutritionist and an overall guru with a variety of exercises, training techniques, and supplement recommendations to go along with my training. I have worked with many trainers in the past, I think Allen is trainer #6 and I can honestly say he is the real deal! I am in the best shape of my life even though I am approaching 40 years old. It also helps that he is very punctual and in over a year, he has never shown up a minute late to a workout!

    Allen Konchinsky is the best trainer I have ever had. He is professional, intelligent and well-informed. He has a great ability to judge exactly what will challenge me and yet be doable for me. He always varies the workout so that it stays interesting. His guidance has helped me lose weight and build stamina. I recommend Allen Konchinsky highly.

  • 5/5 stars

    Allen was recommended to me, and as a first time gym & trainer user, he guided me through the basics and made the experience both worthwhile and enjoyable. Without Allan's approach, I probably would not have continued, and I learned so much about the value of the exercise I do and the food that I eat. I highly recommend Allen, he is a top notch trainer, and I certainly look forward to working with him again in the future.

    Allen is a really great trainer, and a great human being, he truly cares about you as a customer and he pushes you every step of the way until you achieve your goal, i contacted him to build some muscle, ( i am a skinny guy) started my sessions about 4 months ago and i have gained about 15 pounds since i started. I used to have a trainer at Xsport, and there is no way to compare the quality of the service provided, you get a FULL HOUR of non stop training with constant supervision, his customer service and attention to detail is great and you really feel that you are "investing" your time and money. Even after the work out he motivates you and gives you advice about what to eat and what not to eat, or extra tips and things you can do on your own. So if you are reading this and you really want to get results, you know what to do....

    I have been using workout partnertz since august and I have lost 26 lbs while adding muscle. My stamina has increased tremendously and when I now look in the mirror I see the man I was 10-12 years ago.
    This is all due to Mr. Konchinsky's knowledge of what is needed for each individual to achieve their respective goals. I can not recommend his services enough if you are ready for a positive change in your life.

    I have had Allen, owner of Workout Partnerz, as my personal trainer for over a year now. He has done a great job of keeping me motivated by continually providing new types of exercises, making the workouts challenging and providing excellent guidance on eating healthier. After a work out you really feel as if you have accomplished something. He is also very concientious and reliable. I highly recommend Allen if you are serious about getting in shape.

    My year of Personal Training with Allen has been a great experience. I have accomplished more with getting this body together with Allen for one year than I had in 35 years (gym memberships, prepaid personal trainers and equipment at home) Allen really cares about helping you meet your goal and is dedicated to you reaching your goal in a safe non-competitve, personal setting. (well except that he makes is look easy sometimes..ok thats just my body rebelling against I am only stopping training with Allen because I moved out of state.

    Allen is the perfect trainer for someone who needs the motivation and support to keep going. I have lost over 30lbs and won't stop until I achieve my ultimate goal. Allen does what it takes to get u in when u can make it. He gives the proper diet and as long as u stick to it, it works. His workouts r adjusted to meet your level and pushes u to meet your goals. If their is a better trainer in IL, he or she would have to b the perfect trainer because Allen is pretty close to perfect.

    Al is great! Always on time with a variety of exercises to keep me going the correct direction. I've lost 40 lbs. following his eat 300 strategy. My muscles have made an amazing return after yrs of back pain had reduced me to a former husk of a used up shell of a man.

  • 5/5 stars

    Allen is a great trainer. I've lost tons of weight since I started working out with him, and I'm in much better shape. He knows a lot about diet and nutrition in addition to exercise. He's very comfortable to work with. He's a sincere, hard-working guy. I can't recommend him enough.

3 sessions per week
4 sessions per week

10, 20 or 30 session packages

additionally single sessions start at $65 but a discount is available when you purchase 10 or more

Ask about my monthly special or discounted timeslot

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. Actually after losing 75lbs co workers encouraged me to help others lose weight and get fit! After hearing this multiple times I decided to give it a try and the rest is history!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. My job/jobs is managing people. Now with their diet and exercise routine when with me and other off site cardio activity. I even text/email clients a few times a week to ensure they stick to meal plan and dont get off track.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Meet with me or another trainer, try 2-3 sessions and see if its for you! Personal training is not for everyone but if you want results and dont want to wait years it is the way to go! Training styles vary so see what works for you. Keep in mind that you should find someone you feel comfortable with as this person will be basically directing you for 2-3 hours a week. Who wants to take orders from a drill sargent type personality or someone that barks orders in a rude manner. Check out a potential trainer and ask for a sample of what exercises you will be doing and if there are breaks, time for water etc. Know what you are getting into and ask lots of questions now. if a trainer is moody or irritable you will find this out now. Also be honest with any potential trainer. Disclose medical issues, sore joints, limitations such as bad knee etc.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. i wish potential clients knew that its always time for fitness and its never too late, they are never too old and even if they only have 30 minutes a day 3 times a week they can begin a program based on that. The basic principal to lose weight is to burn up more calories then you take in. So sure exercise burns these up however an individual can easily eat less, cut back on carbs and do simple things like take stairs instead of an elevator, can pick the farthest parking spot at mall instead of closest, can really make smarter choices all day long. Simple fixes include selection a low cal salad dressing perhaps cutting 100 plus calories. Also dont drink your calories. Whole milk, juices and some sports drinks are packed with calories. Select zero calorie water or something with 25 or less calories as your beverage of choice with meals and throughout the day.
