"I joined Patrick's group fitness class three months ago, and it has motivated me in some many different ways. I always leave his class with either a good word of advice that motivates me to exercise more during the week, or with a great tip for healthier eating. I look forward to his "killer" workouts every week. They're fun, exciting, and never the same. It's also amazing to workout with people that have achieved so much and have lost a tremendous amounts of weight due to Patrick's excellence, experience and professionalism as a personal trainer. "

"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)."

"Medel was my personal trainer for more than a year. I rate him five stars. He was extremely motivating, was tuned in to my needs and very enthusiastic. He had just the right balance of pushing me without being overbearing. I actually looked forward to my workouts with Medel. I highly recommend him. I find him to be an excellent trainer and person "

"Dan has been training me for the past 8 weeks and since we started working together, I've seen an incredible improvement in my strength, and my figure--this week I was able to fit back into my favorite pair of work pants that I haven't been able to fit in, in a year! When I first met with Dan I hadn't worked out in literally 2 years and was really nervous about all of it; however, Dan devoted an entire session to simply understanding me, the current state of my health, my habits, and helped me define where I wanted to be in my ideal future state. Dan then put together a customized program to ensure we could get there. As a woman, my one of my biggest concern was around "bulking up" from weight training as my body type lends itself to this if I'm not careful. I shared this with Dan and despite what I was sure would happen after the weight training, he's somehow made plan that made me smaller and noticeably toned up, and definitely not bulkier! In parallel, Dan has also really helped me with my poor eating habits--I'm a busy executive with little time to care or prepare food that is consistently healthy--and I sure do love Chicago cuisine. But every visit Dan would casually ask me what I planned to eat for the week and then give me directives on best options, grocery store lists, crackpot recipes, how to store my food, when to prepare it, and even where I can stop on the way home to get what I need for the next day :). . Dan has been a God send and reinvigorated my belief that I can take care of my health, actually meet my fitness goals, and truly enjoy it. I've absolutely loved, enjoyed, and seen results from every single session with Dan. I can't rave enough about how great a trainer he is and his attention to every aspect of his clients fitness, and overall well-being!!"

"Paul is a great trainer with a structured and well thought out approach. I appreciated how our first session was structured and tailored to the leg workout I had requested. The thorough and succinct explanation for each exercise was helpful in minimizing the time between each workout while ensuring that it was done correctly. Each subsequent session built upon the previous session and the reasoning was explained in a fashion I could understand. I have been to multiple personal trainers since I was young, and I feel that this was one of the most professional experiences I have had with a personal trainer."

"I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Chris Dagley who is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated personal trainer. The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Chris’s perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs and challenging yet achievable goal setting. His professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his work and ultimately his clients, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a new and healthier lifestyle. He instills confidence and encouragement to make you want to work further and apply yourself more diligently. Chris has motivated me to levels of personal fitness that I could not have achieved on my own. I can highly recommend him without any reservations."

"Migdalia is an amazing, inspiring woman. As my trainer, she had great compassion, challenging me but also understanding my limitations. She was also my massage therapist and I could feel her warmth and care with every touch. She's remarkable and I recommend her with the highest possible regard."

"About five years ago I sought out the help of Sam Ziserson for problems I was having with hip and leg pain. Frankly, as a woman in my mid-fifties , I was worried that I was experiencing the inevitable aches and pains of middle age. Sam worked with me, focusing on my specific issues and I am very happy to report, I no longer experience any of the pain I once felt. I am stronger, and happier knowing that my work with Sam prepares me for a healthier future. Sam brings a sensitivity to training that I think is probably pretty rare. His is a whole person approach. He always meets me where I am, but is not afraid to push me just that little bit more to help me achieve real fitness. I would not consider working with any other trainer. After all, how many women my age can say that their twenty year old daughters have complemented them on how they look in a swim suit! One piece of course!"
