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 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.

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.

John is an excellent trainer. He is knowledgeable, patient, and a great communicator. It is evident that John understands the science behind physical health and makes sure that the personalized workouts he develops are safe and effective. He teaches you what each movement is doing and why it is important. A trainer isn't just a person who tells you what to do a few time a week. A trainer enables you to take control of your health by teaching you the 'hows' and 'whys'. I've been working with John for just under a month and I feel stronger and healthier. I will continue working with him and I highly recommend him if you are looking for a personal trainer.

Since joining the gym about 3 years ago, Paul is the 3rd and by far best personal trainer I've had. While I was initially skeptical about DJ Pauly D (due to being unhappy about unexpectedly losing my previous trainer), by the end of our first session Paul had won me over and I knew I was going to love working with him. Paul brings a wealth of knowledge, motivation and personality to each session. These past 2 months working with Paul has re-motivated me to focus on my fitness goals...and I'm starting to see results, which Paul has shown excitement and given praise for. Paul has a true dedication and passion for working with his clients and helping us reach our goals - which you can sense during sessions. During sessions, Paul remains very supportive and pushes you to reach your goals while also ensuring you are using the correct form. I appreciate that Paul is able to explain the importance of each exercise and why he makes me do exercises that I don't like. :) Paul knows his stuff and by listening to and following his recommendations you will see positive results. I would highly recommend Paul to any of my friends or anyone looking for a new trainer. You definately wont be disappointed in all that Paul has to offer.

Nourish to Fitness really nourishes your body, sprit and soul! Workouts are customized for clients' abilities in such creative ways. Every aspect of nutrition is individualized; they teach you how to learn your own body. My trainer even went shopping with me for my supplements and meal plan food!

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!

I found Chris' post through Craigslist and decided to try it out. I'm a student and drive from Naperville. I thought hey- 2x/wk for an hour is totally doable with my schedule. PLUS he was having a promo! When I met Chris he was totally laid back which I respond better too. I've never had a personal trainer before, but I really enjoyed my sessions with him!

I have really enjoyed my experience working with LulaFit. They provide custom, tailored personal training at your home. After I had my son, they helped me strengthen my core and regain muscle so I could piece my body back together postpartum. Truly the best thing I could have done for myself!

Trent is a VERY nice person and an Awesome trainer! He's on time, PROFESSIONAL, and I enjoy my workouts! He's concerned about any Health issues you may have...And takes that into consideration during your workout! I had knee surgery and lower back issues! If I can't do an exercise, he looks for an alternative one! He knows when to give you that extra push and know when to ease up!! Trent is concerned about your diet and what your PUTTING into your body as well! That's very important because when you eat healthy you get better workouts and faster results!! He Monitors your heart rate before and after workouts. I've been working out with Trent for several weeks and I'm getting compliments about the results already!! I mean REALLY I couldn't have asked for a better trainer!! 😊

I can’t say enough about Dr. Bolster and his treatment approach. After my initial exam for low back pain, he put together a treatment plan consisting of dry needling, ligament release, adjustments and corrective exercise. As a personal trainer I am on my feet for hours at a time. He has given me the tools needed to perform my job at full capacity.
