My first time exploring a personal trainer. Very responsive and just a great experience.Mar 3, 2015Verified
I did a lot of research to find a personal trainer to help me gain back muscle tone and flexibility lost due to my RA. Ken was extremely helpful and accommodating to my schedule and researched exercises that wouldn't be too stressful on my joints. I look forward to working with him and would highly recommend this company to my family and friends.Mar 1, 2015Verified
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.Sep 17, 2014Verified
Ken met with my husband and me to assess our fitness levels and match us with a personal trainer. He gave us a great first workout and answered all of our questions. He then matched us with Kasia, who is a FABULOUS trainer! We have had ten sessions with her so far and intend to keep going indefinitely. I am a beginner, while my husband is more advanced. Kasia is able to help me focus on form and technique while providing a killer workout for my husband in the same session. Love working with her, and cannot recommend Personal Best enough!Jul 9, 2014Verified
I chose to train with Personal Best Fitness because they listed to what I wanted. Training in my home is an added benefit because it allows me to focus on my workout. Kasia is a compassionate individual who works with you where you are at. She will push you to achieve your goals but listens when it is too much.Apr 4, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We try to match the client with the trainer our trainers get paid according to their skills and schedule. Not every client needs a trainer every workout. Their really are many factors. A range of fees starts at $35 per month and goes up from there. Calling us at (773) 775-2865 would be the best way to get an accurate quote.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All of our trainers are certified or come with degrees. All participate in continuing education both in-house and out-of-house. I teach personal training for different organizations and lecture on fitness and health topics for different corporations.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was originally a cardiac rehabilitation technician but wasn't passionate about it. I had worked as a trainer my last semester of college at Chicago Health Club and discovered I was good at it. I was good at it because I loved it. My favorite thing is for a client to tell me what they cannot do and them getting them to be able to do it.
