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!
I worked out with Patrick for over a year and a half. He helped me lose over 90 pounds, which I've kept off for over a year now. During the process he not only was my personal trainer but became a good friend. His style is very easy going, yet very motivating without being condescending. I not only learned how to exercise at home, but learned about nutrition, muscle groups and added a few new recipies to my collection! I never, ever, imagined jogging in my life. He encouraged me to try a 5K and now I've jogged in five of them. I dropped five sizes, regained my confidence and took back my life. I could have never done it without him--for he has truly saved my life! Thanks again, Patrick!
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 an awesome trainer! I have never had a personal trainer and Raven definitely made me feel very comfortable. Raven is extremely qualified and is very knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness, nutrition, and the human body. Although he kicks my butt every session the hour flies by! Before coming to Raven I was in physical therapy for hip pain, since working with Raven my hip pain has decreased enormously. He always makes sure you are using correct form which helps prevent injury and ensures you get the most out of your workout. Definitely recommend!!
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.
I started working with Andie back in October of 2012. Then I was 40lbs overweight and completely out of shape. I had never been to a personal trainer before, and I can tell you at first I was terrified. However, once I met Andie she totally put me at ease and totally changed my perception on personal trainers. Andie cares about her clients and pushes you to be the best YOU possible. I'm now down 35lbs, almost to my goal weight, and have toned up all over. People I haven't seen in months have been complimenting me and asking how I was able to lose so much weight and tone up, and my answer is always Andie! Without her I'd probably be lost in some mainstream gym with no clue as to what I was doing. Andie provides you with a reasonable meal plan, which will surprisingly become your normal lifestyle, and pushes you to your maximum potential on every visit. She is extremely knowledgeable in weight training and food portioning. Her system allows you to lose the inches and weight in a healthy way so that you're not starving or denying yourself of some guilty pleasures. Not only will you develop new habits, but you'll take care of yourself in a way you never thought possible. I can honestly say that working with Andie has changed my life in more ways than one and all for the better. So, if you're truly looking to change your ways, get in shape and become the best YOU possible then DEFINITELY go to Andie. Trust me, you won't regret it. -Katelyn
Elijah is awesome, he pushes you harder than most, and keeps the workouts fresh and interesting. My fiancé and I never used personal trainers much and now we are year-round clients and love it!
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.
Working with Chaun has been a great experience!! He first listened to my needs (previously had broken my foot & hand) then worked me out hard! He's flexible & gives good rates. I got great results in less time than I expected; always enjoying my workout with his motivation. He answered my nutrition & exercise questions to fit my needs. Chaun is very personable & knowledgeable, he truly knows his stuff. Will definitely continue to work with him!! I highly recommend him as a personal trainer!
I never had a personal trainer before, but knew I needed help and motivation to get healthier. Through Thumbtack, I received a quote from John at MOR Athletic. The very next day, over the consultation, we went over the scheduling details, payment and my goals. John was very nice as he answered all of my questions and told me what he could bring to the table as my trainer. We decided on a 3 month trial period since it was a good amount of time to see if this was a good fit for me. Aside from the reasonable pricing, the best part of MOR Athletic is that John comes to me for my sessions. After a long day at work, it's extremely convenient to be trained at home! I would recommend MOR Athletic to those who would like to be healthier at their own pace and for a good cost!
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.
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 Chriss 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.
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.
Jessica is a wonderful personal trainer. I appreciate that she comes to my home and is flexible with my busy work schedule. She incorporates weight training, yoga, Pilates, and high and low intensity cardio. She pushes me appropriately and always seems to know just what I need!
Steve is one of the best trainers. I'll tell you why from my personal experience with him & how he is such a great trainer. Steve, as my trainer, helped me in loosing 50 lbs & obtaining a 18% body fat (something that I couldn't even imagine being in my mid 30s). Steve also helped me gain more self confidence & self worth through the process which lead to a holistic, healthier, & happier me! Not only did he lead me to these great successes, I know many others he has lead to success as well. He is the best personal trainer no matter what your goals are, who you are, & what boundaries you may have. Steve joins you on your journey to becoming a better you. He is extremely motivating, inspiring, & great at keeping you accountable. He will push you to accomplish more than you could do on your own. Because he has extensive education & experience, you can feel safe letting him push you past your own boundaries in order to reach that healthier &happier you! I have to mention, I have tried so many trainers & I am highly critical of them. I would say 90% are bad, 9% are good, & 1% are excellent. Steve is one of the 1% of excellent trainers. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Steve!
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
Chris was my personal trainer for 3mos. Due to leaving town, I had to forgo my sessions. Chris packed motivation, many years of experience and industry know how and a very caring attitude that tailored the perfect workout for me. I highly recommend Chris as a personal workout trainer.
Kevin has completely rocked my world! He is an amazing personal trainer who helped transform my body and get me back into shape after having my second child. Kevin uses motivation, education, and innovative exercises to keep me engaged and wanting more with each session. The results have been phenomenal and everyone keeps asking for my secrets to success. My answer is always that Kevin is the best thing to come into my life. He is my biggest cheerleader and promotes positive lifestyle changes. I cannot thank Kevin enough for helping me achieve my goals and so much more. Iâm definitely a client for life! - Angela B.
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!
Matt Walters is an awesome trainer, He knows what he's talking about with training each time he gives me a good workout but not where I'm hurting for the next week like some trainers have done. I trust his method,I'm seeing and feeling results. I'm so glad I found him,very professional and easy to talk to.I definitely recommend him to everyone and he's affordable.
