Five start to Chitown Trainer and my trainer Matt. His extensive knowledge of physical training, personally tailored approach make a real difference for one's overall health and goals.
I initially signed up for a personal training package of 7 sessions that went pass very quickly. Mr. Gardner was very patient and willing to work within my physical limitations. With that been said, I signed on for additional training sessions. Checkout his website to see my results and you be the judge of his level of knowledge as a trainer and nutritional coach.
I started training with Chad in August of 2016 until July of 2017, and let’s just say that it made a difference. A little background about why I decided to get a trainer: I got engaged in July of 2016 and my fiancée and I decided to have our wedding the following year (in July). I noticed that I wasn’t making the best choices for a healthy life (I.e. not exercising enough, bad food choices, not doing strength training, etc). I wanted to look good for my wedding. So I made the decision to change my lifestyle to being a little bit more active and making better choices when it came to food. From the beginning, Chad asked me what my goals were and made sure I was successful in achieving them. His prices are not that bad either and are pretty affordable. After a a couple of months of training with him, my family, friends, fiancé, and including myself noticed how I have lost weight and was a bit more toned. I was happy for the first time in years with my body. Before having a trainer, I would only do cardio. However, after I began training with Chad, he taught me that cardio wasn’t the only thing I should be doing. He taught me strength training with the weights and with my body. I definitely learned a lot a with him. In the beginning it was hard and there were a couple of times I wanted to quit because I wasn’t seeing results right away. However, I kept on going because I knew it would take time. I’m glad I did because I noticed changes in myself. I noticed I had more energy and stregnth. I was sad that I had to stop having Chad as my trainer (I moved down to Florida in August). I have to say that after moving down here, I still incorporate many of the things Chad taught me about stregnth training and cardio into my workouts. If you are looking for a trainer, I would definitely hire Chad!
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 is the real deal folks; a former military man, martial artist, and tricep dip extraordinaire. If you are looking for someone who is going to get you in shape and feeling confident about your body, look no further. With almost 3 decades of experience as a personal trainer he has a lot of knowledge to share with his clients to help them not only look better but adopt a much healthier life style. His coaching has helped me get the gains I wanted and enhance my athletic performance. His workouts are ones he designs himself and are really fun and engaging that promote the functionality of the body. Which basically means his workouts prepare you for movements your body will actually use in real life. Since training with Raven I've learned how to train smarter and eat the right foods for me based on my goals. Once again, very knowledgeable guy, very cool guy, very good friend, and a guy I trust to get me in tip top athletic shape.
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!
Please be advised that I have worked with--Chaun, and I have found him to be resourceful, thoughtful and very concerned with training and working out. He is reliable, and helpful. More importantly he was always open to new ideas, in the physical training department.
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!
Mike is fantastic. He's an excellent trainer—motivational, knowledgeable, and low key. I'm so happy I found him. I was ready to get fit but knew I was far too lazy to do it on my own. He pushes me, but never to the point of possible injury, which does happen with less experienced trainers. More importantly, he's a doctor. He knows how to get you in shape due not only to his fitness expertise, but to his medical training. He won't toss you into some gorilla workout in the first session. Instead, he assesses you physically in terms of posture, body fat percentage, and overall fitness and ability. And then you start from there. I've already lost some weight, (in a pretty short time) and my muscle tone has improved. In addition, as people always say (usually when you don't want to hear it!) exercise is great for you psychologically as well. I always feel good physically and mentally after a session with Mike. He's the best. And believe me, I've avoided exercise for years. Now I look forward to it. Thanks, Mike!
Tiffany is one of the best trainers I've seen. From the first day training with her she made me feel welcomed :)
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 hired him for self defense training. He is amazing. He adjust techniques to what comes natural to your body and mind. I'm so happy with his training.
I've been working out with Greg for two years now and I'd recommend him to everyone. He provides customized full body workout coaching, and when you reach the appropriate level he can really push you. He also clearly is well versed and trained in the proper technique. An A+ of a trainer.
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.
Private personal training at Balanced Fitness is the only way to get fit. Clean, bright work out space. Private one on one training. Great music and Gary makes every workout fun yet challenging. Never a dull moment at Balanced Fitness.
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.
Joe has taught me so many things so far in strength training! Every session I walk away with something new...I found him to very adept in the area of fitness. I also appreciated the fact that he knows exactly when & how to modify the movement(s) which keep it challenging & beneficial to me in obtaining my goals.
Warzone Training Grounds has provided me everything that I need to get in shape on my schedule. The different classes allow me to balance both work and my home life. The instructors are very knowledgeable and good at motivating you to push past your previous limits.
Chris tries to develop comprehensive training for each individual's needs. He also works out with you and advises his clients of proper technique and form. He stays in his lane and gives you his best expertise - no more, no less! Great trainer and good person. Give him a shot!
Great workouts and kept it interesting.
