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!

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!

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 by the far the best personal trainer I have ever met. When I first started with him, I was 250 lb and lost 25 lb within 2 months (meeting only twice a week...when I wasn't traveling for work, which by the way he was very willing to work around). His system draws from a lifetime of experience and a PhD in Kinesiology. He custom designed a specific exercise regime for my body type that was shocking effective. It is hard to describe how much progress I made. I did not expect the results I got. His insight into fat reduction and strength conditioning blew my mind. I learned more in a few sessions with Raven than I had in my entire life. Working with him, I realized how ineffective my past exercise experience was (I worked so hard for a lot fewer results). Not to suggest Raven won't push you hard (in fact, he'll push you to your limit), but it's incredible how he makes the session so fun and fast. For example, in the past, I avoided a "difficult" exercise because I was afraid of hurting myself or vomiting. With Raven's guidance, I was given the courage to go further than I ever had (without evening noticing!). When I threw up for the first time, we celebrated together! It was a rite of passage and I am very proud of testing my limits. If you want to lose fat in a sustainable way, Raven's whole body health philosophy will take you the distance. It's not a gimmick and it takes hard work, but he will get you to your desired weight and body shape faster than anyone out there. Don't sign up if you don't want to put in the work, because Raven expects your best effort. But if you are committed to his diet and exercise program and want to laugh a lot along the way, he's your guy. (And don't worry about your motivation...Rav's an expert motivator and has a way of energizing your desire to get better every day).

I am 61 and decided to get back in control of my physical fitness and was looking for a trainer. Just a few minutes into talking with Elijah, and I knew it was going to be a good fit for me. I really wanted to commit to a trainer, but I had no idea how much I was going to really enjoy it. Oh, it's very challenging at times, but Elijah picks up quickly on one's motivation, capability and desire and matches your workout accordingly. Elijah works with all ages so don't be shy! Down almost 4% in body fat in 90 days and just signed up for my next 90! Do it!!! Sign up now!!!

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.

I have been training with John for a month now and I can already see and feel the changes in my body and my energy levels! John listened to what my goals were and has provided me with fun yet challenging workouts and he has given me great meal prep ideas. He is a very knowledgeable, friendly and truly a genuine person. I appreciate the fact that he respects my time (he is never late) and that his prices are affordable. After telling me about his inspiring story, he said that he wants professional fitness help to be accessible to everyone and that's why he is so affordable. I look forward to continuing my journey training with John and MOR Athletic!

I started training with Juan about a month ago. He took a consultative approach like a doctor's visit. He asked about my goals, diet plan and workout experience. He also asked about prior injuries to avoid re-injury. The first workout, he identified the course of action to implement. Perhaps his biggest strength is his focus on proper technique. I tend to power through the workout and hold my breathe. Juan takes note of these corrections and identifies them during future workouts. That's impressive! I like how he focuses on weight training, cardio and core.

Bryce has been my personal trainer for the last 2 years and I have always enjoyed working out with him. He keeps me accountable, always following up to make sure I'm staying on track. His workouts very, and if there are certain maneuvers that are just too uncomfortable, he has enough knowledge to provide a different exercise to workout the same muscle group. He is also flexible in his scheduling to meet my availability so work conflicts don't get in the way of my ability to exercise. He has made me healthier, more fit, and I plan to continue working out with him indefinitely.

Jessica always has my personal fitness and health goals in mind as she designs my training plan. She provides her expertise on what will work for my ability level, and keeps me on track. She knows exactly how to motivate me, and goes above and beyond to support and guide me toward my goals. You won't find a trainer that cares about you as an individual the way Jessica does!

Being a novice in gym workouts, I decided to take help of fitness trainer, Tyrone Walton. I have attended a total of 5 early morning sessions with him till now and all of them are really helpful. He is extremely knowledgeable and has guided me through the exercises during the sessions. We do have light friendly conversations during the sessions which make them even more effective. The gym itself is very clean and rarely crowded. Also, I find workouts to be appropriate to my level of fitness. Tyrone has a very sound strategy to slowly pace yourself to muscle building. In a nutshell, I will highly recommend Tyrone's fruitful personal training sessions to others and I myself is excited to keep working out with him.

I have worked with Roy for several years and appreciate that his focus is on older adults (over 50).He provides a work out plan that will help you maintain strength,mobility,stability,and endurance. I've seen trainers who are little more than rep counters or who focus on the "pretty " muscles.Roy is so much more than that!

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 Brent’s 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!

Love working with my future trainer. She's excellent at scheduling workouts around my busy life, and the variety I get is far beyond what I was able to do on my own. This is really a great program if you want the accountability of a real person plus the convenience of being able to do workouts wherever. I can do workouts when traveling, at home, at the gym. They also customize the workout to the gear I have available, which makes it super easy. It's also great having an app to reach out to my trainer, rather than waiting for my weekly training session to ask questions. Megan's very punctual with responses, and very understanding with all my concerns. Overall this is an excellent service. Much recommended.

    Just need get a six pack ASAP. I am athletic with low body fat, so I think it should be realistic to develop one within a month or two. All I need is for a personal trainer/consultant to tell me what exercises to do everyday, what to eat, and to actually check up on me on a weekly basis. I am quite self-motivated, so I don't need a personal trainer to be there for all my workouts, but I do need a lot of guidance.
