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!! :)
ve been working with Patrick now for the last 7 months and it has been one of the best decisions of my life!! I have struggled with my weight my whole life - like since the 3rd grade. I had gotten to the point that nothing else had worked and I thought that it was either this or I was going to have to finally accept that I was never going to have the kind of life and body I wanted. Patrick changed all of that! He constantly encourages me and has helped me change the way I look at food and exercise and made me realize that this is a journey, and not a quick fix. He holds me accountable in a good way and pushes me when I would wimp out and just quit. He focuses not only on exercise but also nutrition and habits that will make me successful. And one night when I was whining that I didn't know what I was going to make for dinner because I didn't have anything healthy to eat - he walked right into my kitchen and made me dinner and proved me wrong! If you are considering personal training, you couldn't chose a more dedicated partner to be on this journey with you. He is truly committed to your success!!
Love this place. Andrew is the man! I've been to lots of gyms over the years, and he has been the best trainer! I can't say enough good things about him. I hate working out and usually end up quitting because it gets boring or I just lose motivation. Andrew keeps it interesting and makes me want to come back every week. Dare I say he makes working out FUN?! Every session is different so you don't get bored doing the same thing over and over like with some trainers. He's very personable and talks to you the whole time which makes the sessions fly by. All of the exercises are challenging, making you actually work hard unlike some trainers who I feel like never pushed me to challenge myself. He's constantly motivating me when some times I feel like jello and just want to give up. He's very easy to talk to so it's not weird or awkward having someone train you one on one which was my biggest fear. It's a very laid back environment with him but he makes sure you're working hard while you're there at the same time. Beyond just working out, he's taught me a lot about diet and nutrition as well. The gym itself is very clean and organized. He actually cares about his clients which is a lot more than I can say for some other trainers. I highly recommend checking him out, you won't regret it!
Lindsey is fantastic! She's a skilled chef with loads of ideas. She's knowledgeable about health and nutrition. She's well organized, a good communicator, and always followed through!
I can't thank Tim Marsala enough for helping me strengthen my lower back after an injury at work. His advice on nutrition has been extremely helpful in my fitness goals as well.
I have worked with Jessica professionally for 3 years and have known her personally for 23 years. Jessica is very knowledgeable about personal training, nutrition, psychology and yoga. I am very impressed with her knowledge and applicability of the mind-body-spirit connection. Her attention to detail, quality of work and professionalism are other characteristics that keep me referring her clients. I highly recommend her services and she has helped me reach personal goals. She will always do her best to help in whatever way she can.
I’m a lawyer finishing my MBA, planning my wedding and trying to kickstart my weight loss. I wasn’t sure where to start, but Mark gave me the step by step support I needed. In two weeks, I lost 7 pounds with a combination of his coaching, nutrition, and meal prep services. I'm so glad I found him - Thanks Mark!
34-m- Los Angeles, CA, 5'10'' was 196 lbs. (too much "in-N-out"). I found Body Evolution through my Doctor after consulting with him about losing weight and building muscle. I am now 175 lbs. and my abdominal muscles are coming out!!! Before starting my program, I was lifting weights on my own but wasn't getting the results I was looking for. I even tried personal trainers around my areas and didn't help much. Body evolution helped me with nutrition education and fitness training online and I even got a DNA test to understand my body. It's been 4 weeks now and I'm loving this great experience and the change in my body that I'm having.... excited!
Excellent one on one and group coaching in all aspects of nutrition and meal planning as well as physical training.
I enjoyed working with the trainer, she works hard to ensure that she plans the workouts and nutritional plans geared towards my needs. As a result, I have experienced a 30lbs weight loss over the past 4 months.
Katy was very knowledgeable and made corrections in my form that really helped. She also provided nutrition tips to maximize my workout. Will definitely continue using her services.
I'm a competitive athlete who's always struggled with eating too much and not the right things, and it's generally been a net negative on my performance, daily energy levels, and even sleep. Tiffany provided me with an incredibly detailed nutrition plan that took all the thought out of the process: i know exactly what to eat; what my grocery list is; and she even found a way to incorporate some of my favorite cheat items in there. It's not a diet. It's a new, intelligent lifestyle change, and results are already showing after three weeks.
Donna has been my nutrition and health coach for almost a year and she is fantastic! She has helped me lose over 20 pounds through mostly habit and behavioral changes. Her meal plans have been delicious and I always feel like I'm eating enough. The magic though, is the weekly accountability. Even though I am now in a routine our weekly calls have helped keep me focused and motivated. Donna is a god send!
Very professional to work with.. truly cared about what I wanted and needed to achieve my goals in fitness. Very knowledgeable with training and nutrition. I love he is always available and quick to respond.
Victoria's passion for fitness and nutrition really shows in her work! She has helped me formulate diet plans based on my fitness goals working around the many allergies I have and she is also a great trainer to do workouts with! I enjoy working with Victoria and highly recommend her to others that are looking to revamp their eating habits or step up their game at the gym!
I help turn well-loved and new recipes into healthy and delicious re-creations. I also help clients with food restrictions (allergies, etc.) and cook simply and deliciously.
Unlike most chefs, I have training in nutrition and experience with holistic health. My culinary training is from the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City and I've also worked at an Ayurvedic Spa in India. How you feel after eating is just as important to me as how the food tastes.
I am a full-service personal trainer. I have everything you need and will bring the equipment to you. I have 13 years of experience and a broad range of clients from all ages, types, and sizes. Not only do I offer you your workouts in the privacy of your own home, but I will also provide diet counseling, as well as all your cardiovascular programming.
I am a physical instructor for the Chicago Park District. I work with a nutrition company to help others lose weight and gain the lean muscle that they desire. Personalized workouts and meal plans are available if you are committed to really getting to the goals you want. At the same time, we help fight child obesity to stop the bullying.
