Konrad is a very professional, smart, ambitious, and flexible. I am working with Mario, one of Chitown trainers. He is simply amazing on all levels. I highly recommend Chitown. Konrad will know how to match you with a trainer that is a very good for based on you goals, shape, and the type of training you like.
One of the best trainers out there! Very helpful and is a great deal of motivation!
I've been training with Garrett for a while now and can't even begin to say how much it's done for me. It's one thing to wake up and work out, but it's a completely different type of work out when you're training multiple muscle groups at once, taking preventive maintenance steps to prevent injuries, and learning about how your body works and grows to its maximum potential- all in an hour and a half max. I've gained not only height on my vertical but also valuable knowledge on how to be the best athlete I can be. Can only say good things about the training I've received!
Jenny and Chris are both great trainers and super motivating. The sessions are always challenging but also very positive. I always leave feeling better about myself and I've seen weight loss results - can't ask for anything else!
Those of you who know me well, know my story. I was large, I ate junk, and I hated each morning I woke up feeling like crap. So 7 years ago I decided to take control. I reached my weight loss goal, but I am still a work in progress. November 2011 I started working out with Bob. I try to keep active every day. This combination has taken me to a level I never imagined. Bob helps me focus on the positive. He challenges both my body and mind to get stronger. I do love working out and I do love feeling so much better each day. I have to say that without my trainer, Bob, I know I would not have reached this fitness level. I tell him all the time how magical I think he is. I dont know if he fully understands how grateful I am to workout with him. He has to deal with my wimpy days, my whiney days, my craziness, and my emotional highs and lows. He always motivates me to keep pushing on. That is not an easy job and I will forever be thankful for having met him. So I hope for those of you who struggle and want change, that I inspire you to just do it, one day at a time.
Alex came recommended by another respected trainer. I had a specific goal in mind and Alex took the time to review, plan, and execute, a workout regiment to help me achieve it. Staying fit is important to me as I am in law enforcement. Alex not only met, but greatly exceeded my expectations. Alex also keeps things varied and fun with kettlebells, weighted staff, and boxing techniques. He is also very knowledgeable on proper nutrition. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a quality trainer. He's the real deal and one of the best out there. Chimp Squad!
Jonny is one of the best trainers I have worked with. He warms me up with cardio on the treadmill for 2 minutes, then we get the blood flowing with jumping jacks, high knees, squat jumps and pushups. Then we stretch and go to work. If it is a chest and tricep day we would do circuits of 3-4 exercises. A sample would be skull crushers to dumb-bell chest press to rope tricep extension to finishing with either pushups or dips to failure. 3 sets with 10-12 reps on each exercise and you do all four exercises in one set. Jonny always explains how to correctly do the exercises and is with me checking my form. He wants me to push myself, but isn't like a drill sergeant. He is like your buddy making sure I do my best. Always smiling and giving me high fives or patting me on the back when he sees I am doing well. Makes sure I have my water bottle filled. Sometimes if it is getting low he will offer to refill it for me as I finish my current exercise. Jonny cares about his clients. After we lift he stretches me out. Then he high fives me, tells me "nice job today"and we set up for our next session. You rock Jonny!
Dave has to be the most professional personal trainer I've ever worked with. Being someone out of shape in my 40's I was hesitant to jump into a plan that might sideline me quickly due to overexertion, but Dave was extremely conscientious of my well-being and worked up a plan I could ease into...as well as see quick results with. Additionally, his knowledge of fitness goes beyond that of other trainers I've worked with...much more of an educated and long-term health perspective. The combination of being personable, knowledgable and professional has been a welcome change. Almost 2 years later I'm still working with Dave and continue to reap the benefits of strength, flexibility and endurance. Looking forward to continuing training with him, and would highly recommend his services to those who are serious about improving their health.
I started receiving advice to jump start my way to healthy living. Coach Carol gave me instructions, i follow them and instant results. For starters I couldn't walk ten steps without stopping to catch my breath. Coach Carol told me to get moving and i did 3minutes at a time (walking and exercising) every week i increased my time by 3 to 5 minutes. Now i can walk and or exercise for 40 minutes. Thanks to God and my coach I will be able to reach my goals. P.s. NO PAIN, NO GAIN
This training was outstanding for me. A person that knew she needed to get in shape and needed real guidance that would truly help me gain my balance and strength. Archie,gave me the knowledge and ability to complete my training at my on pace, he pushed me to find that inner strength. And this is a training I will keep doing.
I found a handful of trainers using thumbtack and spoke to most of them about my goals and what I was looking to accomplish. Ryan stood out to me by actually being responsive to the reasons I was looking for a trainer in our first conversation and provided an outline of how he would help. He didn't jump right in to a sales pitch of 5x a week workouts with chest days and leg days. He didn't push any products or trendy fitness crazes. It was very clear that he has been able to successfully coach people of varying fitness experience, age, and health status because of his uniquely in-depth knowledge that allows flexibility to tailor sessions based on the individual- not a program. I hired Ryan because I wanted a professor of total fitness. Ryan provided nutritional guidance that was rooted in research and years of study. I was able to take away guidelines for structuring my diet to better my overall health- and to understand why and how it works. Ryan also provided unique and challenging workouts each session. He was attentive to technique and to ability. I never felt uncomfortable or like I was being overexerted- but I always left physically exhausted and feeling good. Whether we were using dumbbells or climbing the rope, my safety was in the forefront of his mind so it didn't have to be on my mind at all. Ryan helped me accomplish my goals exactly in the manner in which he said he would in our very first meeting. He is a genuine guy that is in the business of building better humans. He practices what he preaches and provided me a personal experience in which I am greatly appreciative. I benefited from our sessions because of the insight he provided and the passion that came with it. Ryan is a great guy to work with- someone I very highly recommend. Hart Fitness deserves the highest praise, which is why I rate Ryan and his business with 5 stars.
Melody is one of the most kind-hearted, smart and caring person I know. I was her very first client, and I started up with her in May. One of the first things Melody said to me when we started training was that we would never use cardio machines... because you don't need them. I had heard about this before, but never really believed it. You really don't need cardio machines to lose weight. She is teaching me how to lose weight and gain muscle. People get scared with the gain muscle part.. but it's not even For a bulky look... it's for a very toned look. A strong look. That's what I want to be, and she is guiding me and teaching me everything I need to know. I started off squatting literally air in May. Now, in September, I am now squatting 110 pounds. In May I was benching nothing but air. Now I'm benching 90 pounds. I can do box jumps now, and I'm currently working on going to the 3rd highest box. I'm so proud of myself and how far I've come in the past 3 months... and I can't thank Melody enough for not giving up on me when I'm having a bad morning, or if I'm not pushing myself hard enough and she pushes me harder. I am so grateful for her, because that's what I need. I need someone to help me back up when I start to fall, and she does that for me. Thanks Melody for not only being the best trainer, but for being a good friend as well. I love training with Melody, and I can't wait to reach my goals with her by my side!!
Omar has helped me lose 20 pounds in just three weeks. I lost six pant sizes from a 12 down to a size 6 with all his help. Couldn't of done that without him. I tried going to gyms but that didn't work. I needed his personal one on one training. We would work out for hours. Interval training is what we did. We used trampoline boxing Kung fu and jumping rope. He motivated me. If it wasn't for him I would of still been fat. He's a great personal trainer who only wants the best for you. He encourages you to keep on pushing. I never gave up and he never gave up on me. He's good at what he does. He motivates me.😃
Before I met Carlos, I didnt even know what a triathlon was. I hated to swim and hadnt rode a bicycle since I was a child. Carlos taught me how to swim efficiently (I now love to swim) and with Carlos help, I have completed six triathlons! In addition to the triathlon coaching, Carlos has helped me learn about overall healthy living and making better lifestyle and food choices. His calm demeanor and focus on education makes him stand out from other personal trainers. He has definitely made a positive impact on my health.
Darrell is an excellent trainer! He is not only very knowledgeable about fitness and what needs to happen to make changes, but he also makes working out enjoyable. He listens well, pays close attention and is a die-hard about "form'....which is a good thing, as the form is where the magic of fitness lives. I could not recommend this young man more highly!
Best group in Chicago. The triple 20 is a kick ass class never seen anywhere else. Luis is as well the most serious trainer I have ever met. Always on time, fully dedicated to his client and with a lot of imagination for his trainings. Each training is different. I got awesome results very fast.
I have trained with Mike for over one year and couldnt be more satisfied with the results. He is polite and professional, caring and attentive, and dedicated to helping his clients achieve their goals. He has demonstrated skills in diverse training methods and creates individualized programs for all of us who train with him. Mike continually encourages and motivates me to push myself, and to get the most out of my workout sessions. Even when I think I cant go a minute longer or pound heavier, he inspires me to reach new goals in strength, conditioning and overall fitness. I have never been someone who enjoys exercising; however Mike has transformed me into a committed regular that looks forward to going to the gym several nights per week. In addition to being an excellent trainer, Mike is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and has provided me excellent tips on healthy eating habits and weight loss. From an investment standpoint, Ive lost 20 pounds, feel more toned and self confident in my appearance, and have a much more optimistic outlook about my physical capabilities. Having worked with other trainers, Mike is the best. I greatly appreciate what he has done for me and look forward to continuing to train with him.
