Fitness is a journey not a destination. Focus on being better today than you were yesterday and success will follow!
My name is Chris and I am a ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and a NASM Certified Weight Loss Specialist. My career in fitness started after having back surgery. An overly sedentary lifestyle combined with college partying and diet put me in a bad situation. After surgery I did a little self assessment and realized that my current lifestyle along with my family health history didn't exactly forecast a long healthy life. I made a change and got in the gym every day. Like most men I focused on the mirror muscles; chest, biceps and core. Once I started to see results I was hooked and a passion developed. I soon after got a job managing a park district fitness center and my career in fitness had begun.
When I got home from college I was easily 50 pounds heavier than when I left for school. My nutrition was a mess and my exercise habits were pathetic. My surgery sparked a passion in me that has translated into a career helping people get achieve their ideal bodies. I love working with clients who have weight to lose and are motivated to make a change. Combining safe and efficient exercise prescriptions with nutrition coaching, my clients get the results they are looking for and learn how to be self sufficient in the gym and the kitchen.
I currently teach indoor cycling at THE DAILEY METHOD in Lake Forest, IL. I also coach at ORANGE THEORY FITNESS in Lake Forest as well. I also train out of two small gyms, one in Lake Forest and the other in Libertyville. I also work with clients in their homes in the Lake County IL area. I work with all types of clients; men, women, children, young, and wise clients as well. As long as your motivated and willing to put in the work I am willing to help.
