I have 17 years of experience in helping people achieve their goals. With 3 advanced certifications, I posess the education and experience to deal with complex orthopedic issues, as well as general health and fitness goals. I own and train in a well equipped facilty in Roselle IL. that's never crowded.
My certifications are; CEC (The Chek Institute), MATJS (Muscle Activation Technique), and CMTAA (Metabolic Typing Institute). I'm very fortunate to have a career as fulfilling as this is. Helping people feel better and change their lives in a positive way is rewarding on many levels. Being a health and fitness professional doesn't seem like a job to me, because I have a passion for what I do.
My approach is to meet you where you are, and progress from there.
I've had the privilige of helping people eliminate the need for medications, restored function and range of motion, lose weight and sigificantly improve their health.
I'd love to have a chance to help you too!
George Gersch is an expert on all things health and fitness. I have trained with him for several years and, although I am 62 years old, I am more fit than I have ever been. If I come in with any physical complaints, he immediately knows how to remedy the situation. He is a four-star trainer!
George has been my trainer for over 10 years. He is consistently knowledgeable, ask questions and listens to your goals, and then tailor makes a program for you. Workouts are quick, fun and focused on your goals. I am a 60+ and I totally enjoy my twice a week sessions with George. I highly recommend George for his professionalism and personal knowledge of fitness and nutrition.
I start with a comprehensive assesment which includes movement screening, length/tension relationships, and posture.
A review of nutritional and lifestyle behaviors is just as important.
I know education is the key to sucess in any field, and I've studied for hundreds of hours, and continue to study to increase my knowledge of anatomy, physiology and human beings in general. To me, Personal Training is a lot more than teaching people to exercise. At the core of that is a person with feelings, challenges and issues that affect our day to day performance.
One of my philosophies is to "train, not drain". The workout on any given day will depend on how much that person has to give that day.
My rate for Personal Training is $70.00 per session, and they last betwen 45 minutes to an hour depending on the goals for that day's session.
I've always had a passion for fitness, and had a home gym. Before I became a Trainer, friends and colleagues would often ask me what I did to stay in shape. I'd invite them to work out with me, and offered what I knew at the time. It was very rewarding to watch them learn and begin to improve.
I spent 24 years in the commercial printing industry, and as a manager I enjoyed teaching and training emplyees who needed it.
I've worked with a vast cross - section of people from all walks of life. One of my focuses has been on correcting orthopedic issues, so many of my customers come from referrals.
Most recently, a man who suffered an injury falling from a horse was left with shoulder pain and dysfuncion. In addition, his diet was poor and he lacked energy.
On his first seesion, I was able to completely restore range of motion and function to his shoulder. Since then, he's become very strong and fit. He followed my dietary program, and his health and energy levels are fantastic. He continues to train with me, and make improvements.
Make sure they're certified, and they understand the need for what we call functional training.
Clearly identify your goals, and be honest with your candidate.
