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 is an awesome personal trainer who motivates me to lead a healthy and physically active life style. He adapts the exercise program to meet my personal needs and he also encourages and educates me to make healthy food choices. He is a patient and flexible personal trainer who motivates me to stay focused on my long term goals with discipline, hard work, and grit. It is a pleasure to work with Patrick.
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!
My husband and I have been working with 2 of Ken's personal trainers and so far we have been extremely happy with both of them. They always arrive on time and tailor the workouts to our needs and fitness levels. Each week the workout is a bit different and we are always learning new ways to optimize our routine when we exercise alone. Each of the trainers has their own style, and the styles complement each other. For this reason, we like to alternate between the trainers. It is a pleasure to work with both of them as they are both very knowledgeable and cognizant of how to avoid strain or injury. I would highly recommend Ken and his team.
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!!
Raven is the real deal folks; a former military man, martial artist, and tricep dip extraordinaire. If you are looking for someone who is going to get you in shape and feeling confident about your body, look no further. With almost 3 decades of experience as a personal trainer he has a lot of knowledge to share with his clients to help them not only look better but adopt a much healthier life style. His coaching has helped me get the gains I wanted and enhance my athletic performance. His workouts are ones he designs himself and are really fun and engaging that promote the functionality of the body. Which basically means his workouts prepare you for movements your body will actually use in real life. Since training with Raven I've learned how to train smarter and eat the right foods for me based on my goals. Once again, very knowledgeable guy, very cool guy, very good friend, and a guy I trust to get me in tip top athletic shape.
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.
John is an excellent trainer. He is knowledgeable, patient, and a great communicator. It is evident that John understands the science behind physical health and makes sure that the personalized workouts he develops are safe and effective. He teaches you what each movement is doing and why it is important. A trainer isn't just a person who tells you what to do a few time a week. A trainer enables you to take control of your health by teaching you the 'hows' and 'whys'. I've been working with John for just under a month and I feel stronger and healthier. I will continue working with him and I highly recommend him if you are looking for a personal trainer.
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.
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.
He knows his stuff I thought it was a very easy decision to pick out from a list of trainers who I wanted to hire
Nancy has been our personal trainer for almost two years. Her joy and encouragement in our progress has helped us become stronger and stronger. She comes to our home twice a week and, each time, though exhausted at the end of our session, we KNOW that we are going to live longer and better lives because of her work with us.
Great trainers and a great environment to work out in.
I found Chris' post through Craigslist and decided to try it out. I'm a student and drive from Naperville. I thought hey- 2x/wk for an hour is totally doable with my schedule. PLUS he was having a promo! When I met Chris he was totally laid back which I respond better too. I've never had a personal trainer before, but I really enjoyed my sessions with 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!
Justin is a very knowledgeable personal trainer. The workouts are challenging yet functional, and he is great at customizing workouts specific to your goals and body type. Whether you're new to fitness, a veteran in the gym, or rehabbing an injury, Justin puts your goals into action through a fitness plan that caters to your lifestyle. You will be amazed by your results and love going to the gym!
I can’t say enough about Dr. Bolster and his treatment approach. After my initial exam for low back pain, he put together a treatment plan consisting of dry needling, ligament release, adjustments and corrective exercise. As a personal trainer I am on my feet for hours at a time. He has given me the tools needed to perform my job at full capacity.
