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!
I started working one on one with Patrick 3 months ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision! I had previously taken his group fitness classes and always gotten a lot of out them. Working with him one on one has taken it to a new level. He motivates me to do things I would never do on my own. I train with Patrick 3 times a week and every workout is different, challenging, and makes me feel good about myself. I never thought I would look forward to "getting my butt kicked" :) Patrick is also a great nutrition coach. He laid out a plan for me and holds me accountable...just what I needed. We always talk about my progress and ways to improve. Investing in a personal trainer was one of the best investments I ever made. Patrick is highly motivating, personable, knowledgeable, and always brings a positive, fun attitude. I would highly recommend him.
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!!
Excellent personal trainer. Very knowledgeable & experienced and more importantly, genuinely interested in helping out
I have always struggled with my weight after having my kids, I have done weight watchers & Atkins, which I lost alittle but then would gain it back. I worked out when I could, but never knew if I was doing the excercises properly. My husband went on this site to view personal trainers for me in the area and Andie was on the top of our list. I e-mailed her as well as one other, and from her information and not feeling pressured to join with her made me at ease right away. The 1st time meeting with her I was nervous of what she would expect of me, but after talking with her I felt so much more at ease and excited to get started! She listened to everything I had issues with and foods I liked and made me a plan that I can deal with (I even get cheat meals to look forward too:) She makes the workouts fun and she keeps you motivated! I have not lost any weight(nor gained) which she explained not to focus so much on, but lost 6 inches so far in the 2 months I've been with her. Although I have a long way to go,I really look forward to the days I workout with her, and I leave there feeling accomplished and slowly better about myself.
Elijah is awesome, he pushes you harder than most, and keeps the workouts fresh and interesting. My fiancé and I never used personal trainers much and now we are year-round clients and love it!
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 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!
your personal trainers are very well versed in what they do. they give you exercises that are just enough to push you past your personal limits. it's very nice to have them come to your house.
I cannot begin to describe how amazing seeing Jai has been for my health! I’m a active 32yr old female with an autoimmune disease. I have seen nutritonists, specialty doctors, personal trainers....you name it I’ve given it a try. I saw progress with each professional but each left me with either a new problem or with lifestyle changes that were not for me. With the nutritionist I had a super strict elimination diet...yes it worked but messed with my metabolism and left me with low energy. I saw a rheumatologist who put me on multiple medications....yes these worked but who wants to be on prescription drugs and again left me with low energy. Jai finally helped to pull every aspect of my life into a balance that is maintainable! Not just treating one aspect of my health but everything. I’m eating a ton of food, loosing weight/gaining muscle, my energy level is amazing, my mental clarity has improved drastically. I finally feel healthy. I’m actually off of my medications and most supplements (except for the basics - vitamin, fish oil, etc). Jai listens unlike any other trainer I’ve ever worked with. He finds your weak spots, pushes you and challenges you both mentally and physically. He helps push just enough to help promote change without stressing out your body and causing other issues. (Which I have found is the key when dealing with other health concerns....to much stress of any kind and you can end up with a severe flare up). Jai is always listening and constantly changing as your needs and sterengths change throughout the program. He is not a one size fits all trainer. My husband who had totally different goals and experiences saw Jai as well...he leaned out, built muscle, stopped living off of protein powders and supplements, he now has the tools to be more efficient in the gym and to lead an even healthier lifestyle. Jai is knowledgeable and is constantly expanding his educational background. He lives the lifestyle he preaches. Best investment I have ever made for my health and wellness! I cannot day enough good things about Coach Jai. If you show up mentally ready to listen and put in the work he will change how you look at nutrition and working out!
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Chris Dagley who is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated personal trainer. The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Chriss perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs and challenging yet achievable goal setting. His professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his work and ultimately his clients, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a new and healthier lifestyle. He instills confidence and encouragement to make you want to work further and apply yourself more diligently. Chris has motivated me to levels of personal fitness that I could not have achieved on my own. I can highly recommend him without any reservations.
Nate is an amazing personal trainer, hiring him was the best decision I made. Nate is very knowledgeable and easy going. Even the environment is really positive compared to other places I have worked out in. Hiring Nate as a personal trainer is a decision you'll never regret.
I hired Personal Trainer Connor to help me up my game in weightlifting and give me more up to date workouts. As a 60 year old my technique and knowledge was old school and Connor got me current and also helped modivate me. He is also very punctual which I really appreciate.
Best personal trainer - EVER! I've noticed a huge difference in my overall endurance and strength after training with Gary. I'm noticing more definition and my clother are fitting better.
Steve is one of the best trainers. I'll tell you why from my personal experience with him & how he is such a great trainer. Steve, as my trainer, helped me in loosing 50 lbs & obtaining a 18% body fat (something that I couldn't even imagine being in my mid 30s). Steve also helped me gain more self confidence & self worth through the process which lead to a holistic, healthier, & happier me! Not only did he lead me to these great successes, I know many others he has lead to success as well. He is the best personal trainer no matter what your goals are, who you are, & what boundaries you may have. Steve joins you on your journey to becoming a better you. He is extremely motivating, inspiring, & great at keeping you accountable. He will push you to accomplish more than you could do on your own. Because he has extensive education & experience, you can feel safe letting him push you past your own boundaries in order to reach that healthier &happier you! I have to mention, I have tried so many trainers & I am highly critical of them. I would say 90% are bad, 9% are good, & 1% are excellent. Steve is one of the 1% of excellent trainers. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Steve!
He knows his stuff I thought it was a very easy decision to pick out from a list of trainers who I wanted to hire
I had a great time with Eileen! She is very nice and a great trainer!
Chris was my personal trainer for 3mos. Due to leaving town, I had to forgo my sessions. Chris packed motivation, many years of experience and industry know how and a very caring attitude that tailored the perfect workout for me. I highly recommend Chris as a personal workout trainer.
Kevin is great personal trainer. I am working out with him for almost a year. Every workout is different and challenging. He pushes me hard and i can see the difference in my body and my strength. He is also a great funny guy and it is a pleasure to train with him. I highly recommend him.
Matt Walters is an awesome trainer, He knows what he's talking about with training each time he gives me a good workout but not where I'm hurting for the next week like some trainers have done. I trust his method,I'm seeing and feeling results. I'm so glad I found him,very professional and easy to talk to.I definitely recommend him to everyone and he's affordable.
Joe was my personal trainer for over a year and I was very satisfied with the quality of training he provided. My program included a warm-up, progressive power-lifting, metabolic conditioning, and stretching. The exercises were fun, challenging, and at times quirky. No two workouts were ever the same. Joe adapted and modified the program around my needs instead of trying to plug me into some preset routine. I learned that a person does not have to spend two hours in the gym every day in order to see results. With Joes guidance and encouragement, I was able to accomplish things I never thought possible. Joe really listens to and cares about his clients. He demonstrates a willingness to research, explain, and physically demonstrate each technique. He is not afraid to pull in movement from many types of disciplines. This keeps the workouts fresh and interesting as well as efficient and effective. Joe emphasizes life balance (eating, sleeping, exercising, etc). He practices what he preaches. He is very knowledgeable, is willing to continue learning, and has a great personality. I would highly recommend hiring Joe as your trainer.
