nothing to recommend but just to share my story. --- Fact evaluation: Progress tracked by Matt Johnson Trained by Marcin Grobelny (instagram- @grobelnym) Training Time - October 2016- June 2017 Training Intensity- three hour per week Aim- slim down, lose fat and lose weight. Life Outside Training (when I do not have session with trainer)- cardio (cardio), and 17 running races plus 1 bike event in 9 months (how I spent my lazy weekends). Life Outside Training (reality)- a Mon- Fri job that sit in front of the computer 9-6, sometimes weekday OT till late night, or might take my weekend too. Results- more toned up, people no longer say "it seems like you are a little bit less chubby" but "you look slimmer", ~5% fat ratio down. --- This week marks my last week with Chitown Trainer, it has been a very very great 9 month with Marcin that I did not only learn about workout move but also the psychological, health and nutrition, workout and recovery chapters that is totally a bonus to me. Marcin has been my very first friend in town and probably one that I meet most frequent out of all these time. I learnt about his education, and I believe his academic background and body building experience has made him a very unique trainer because he had been educating me in a all-rounded manner. As time goes, I started to learn more about my body and my mindset, as well as the key to stay consistent and balance through out my days. I eventually train harder and more frequent; and be more honest with myself about the diet and I have dropped my fat ratio through all the months. One thing that I did not expect to happen, is that I actually improved from 32min/5k to 27 min/5k in less than 4 months' time. I did not pick up any running training, I enjoy food fest in the new year, I had deep dish and (quite a lot of) cheat meal, but still, a 5 minute improvement in such a short distant run are actually all from the hard work from weight lifting with Marcin. I used to fear leg day as I started because lower body training back in middle school basketball time has bulk me up so much. However, now I start to love my leg days more -- and as a result I am getting a little big addictive with running as well, which I used to think it is super-very-extremely-so-boring. With the encouragement form Marcin, I actually run more than I thought I would. Counting back the weeks, I have nailed 18 city-events in 9 month's time. Given that Chicago is not my home city, this is definitely a life time PR. Meeting Marcin has definitely become a motion to get up early as we train at 0530 most of the time. As I am leaving Chicago, I would look forward to meet Marcin again with a more toned body to show off how I am able to apply things I learnt from him and all the hard work I put in even I am out of the country. --- Thank you Marcin!! :)
He did exactly what he said he would. Personal training was on point, professional at all times, nutrition advise was very helpful. Affordable as well
I was doing high intensity interval training, which caused serious injuries to my knee and shoulder, so I wanted to get back into full body resistance training and cardio. After reading reviews, I chose Dan. It has been a wonderful ride ever since. He's very smart, thoughtful, and incredibly enthusiastic. He spends a great deal of time tracking your numbers so that there is genuine accountability as to the extent of your progress. After I saw the orthopedist about my shoulder and went to physical therapy, Dan took the recommended physical therapy exercises and integrated them directly into my workouts. Very creative; very cool. He's easy to communicate by text or email, and incredibly responsive. He's also very knowledgeable about the Chicago performing arts scene, which I enjoy discussing with him. Bottom line: I'm getting stronger; feeling more fit and confident; and not getting injured. Dan's been great.
Raven, has been awesome. He has been everything that I was looking for in a trainer and more. He is very supportive and cares a lot about your personal goals. I am very glad that I selected him to do my training. My training is very personalized and I have many issues including nutrition and health that he has been able to address and is continuing to help me with. Besides, I feel very secure and trusting when I work with him!
We have been training with Elijah - Physical Peak – for a little over a year now. My husband and I both have had great results. We love the ease and convince of having him train us in our home, without that we wouldn’t be making the life style changes we both have needed. He has helped coach us on nutrition changes also. About half way through our year we got pregnant and I have been able to continue working with him through my whole pregnancy, my doctor has said I am doing great and my health, blood test, blood pressure etc. has been right on track through my whole pregnancy. We highly recommend Elijah and his services if you’re looking to make a long term lifestyle change and need some help and direction to make those changes! You will see great results following his advice and exercise plans!
I love training with Tricia! She has been training me for about 4 months now and I'm VERY happy with the results. I've lost inches and weight, and I even have toned muscles that I never had before! I've lost weight in the past doing Weight Watchers, but I never did any strength training like this! I can do "REAL" push-ups now instead of having to be on my knees! I feel great and know I would not have pushed myself to get here without Tricia. I would recommend her to anyone!
Training with Chaun has been amazing and so much fun! He is very personable and knows what he's doing. I would recommend him to anybody who is willing to work hard in order to gain incredible results.
John and his training is exactly what I was looking for and I know I already see results in my fitness. I actually look forward to our sessions and he's constantly creating new ways to get a great outside workout!
My fiance had been training with Tiffany for about 7 months before I decided to join. i had never done Olympic lifting or crossfit and was intimidated by the thought of it. Tiffany was very welcoming and attentive on my first day of training. She explained the different positions verbally first and then she demonstrated them All the while giving tips and pointers. I immediately felt comfortable and trusting of her abilities. If I didn't get something the first few times, she was quick to find another way to explain it. I've only been working out for a month with her and am already seeing results. The atmosphere is fun and light hearted...however, she does have expectations for you to work hard and give it all you have. She has a great passion that shines through in her work. She genuinely cares about her clients and wants us all to succeed on our wellness journey.
I contacted Jill about hiring an in home personal trainer for my 75 year old mother after she had achilles surgery and was done with physical therapy but still unable to function comfortably in everyday life. My mom has been training with Nicki for a few months (she told me in the beginning she was just going to do "a few sessions") and has improved wonderfully. My mother likes to say she "gave up a cruise" to train with Nicki, but she insists it is totally worth it! My mother is not an easy one to please, and was a hard sell for training in the first place. Kudos to Nicki for winning her over and making a difference!
I have been training with Mike for 5 years now. He has helped me to reach everyone of my personal physical goals. Mike is thoroughly knowledgeable in his training - He's the BEST!
Our family has been training with Gary for the past five years. In addition to providing great strength training, cardio exercise and diet information, Gary is very knowledgeable about working with clients recovering from injuries. He has safely and effectively guided us back to full health after we have completed phycial therapy. His one on one training, attention to individual needs and cutting edge technique, makes him a standout in this field.
Jessica is a wonderful trainer that truly knows her stuff. In the time that we have worked together what sets her apart is the way that she takes the time to explain how and why the workouts and exercises work so well. Her knowledge of Fitness Training techniques is bar none and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to improve their health and well-being through exercise.
Steve is a very hard working professional. He always pushed to get the best he could out of me. He also was very personable with a fun personality. He always made sure things were fun even though we were also serious about the work at hand. I always looked forward to training days. Highly recommend.
He has a lot of great background and experience. Joe was a great choice, I will be training with him long term.

Chris Lee is a great trainer was training with him for a while before I moved out of state or I would still be working with him. He go me to where I wanted to be fitness wise. He taught me alot of different excercises that I still use. He good at working out every type of muscle group. He will be there to push you and get you where you wanna be. Remember though results a two way street. You have to be dedicated outside and inside the gym.
Kevin is amazing! The gym that we do our training in is clean and nicer then a lifetime fitness! Kevin does each of our sessions focusing on what I am looking to improve! He is the best trainer one can ask for and knows how to motivate you to do you're very best. He takes the time to find out what your looking to improve on and what your goals are and we achieve my goals as a team! If you really are looking for a life changing trainer, Kevin is your guy!
Seriously the best workout I've ever had. Justin creates a positive and high energy atmosphere, while also being informative and professional and not to mention inspiring!! I couldn't be happier. Please consider Justin for your Personal Training needs.
What I like about Aiga Jekabsone is that she knows how to motivate me, she makes each of my training sessions challenging but rewarding. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals.
