Titan Fitness offers complete fitness solutions on an individual basis. No cookie-cutter exercise or diet programs! Our trainers have the real-world experience to know what works, what doesn't, and most importantly what will get our clients results QUICKLY and SAFELY! Additionally, our philosophy emphasizes evidence based training. We take advantage of the latest science to inform how we can deliver the best results to our clients.
Our premium services are competitively priced because we believe everyone should be able to afford their dream body. While we offer in-person training strictly to the Chicagoland area, we offer other services like diet and exercise programming to both Chicago area residents and online clients all across the USA.
Personally, my favorite part about this is kind of work is the excitement I can share with my clients over the results they see. It is unbelievably motivating for both of us to keep working hard!
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
All new clients are required to fill out the Par-Q questionnaire which is an industry standard for evaluating ability to participate in a fitness program. From there we perform a fitness evaluation of the cardiovascular and muscular systems and begin developing a custom program designed specifically for the client's needs, situation, and other factors.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
All trainers hold a valid personal training certification by a nationally accredited certifying entity (ACE, NASM, ISSA, ACSM, etc.) and maintain valid CPR/AED certification. Additionally, we screen trainers for competency and experience before introducing them to clients.
Personally, I am certified through the ISSA, and I am senior Biology major. Much of my coursework has included relevant classes like Kinesiology, Anatomy and Physiology I+II, etc.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Our standard system is as follows:
$35/Session (Base Price) + $1/mile outside of a 10 mile radius from the trainer.
Example: If you lived 15 miles away from your trainer, your cost per session would be $35+$5=$40/session.
Please inquire about additional savings through buying packages of sessions (8,16, or 24).
How did you get started teaching?
I started training other individuals after years of building a strong knowledge base about achieving and maintaining a fitness lifestyle. When people regularly began approaching me for advice on building muscle, losing fat, or getting stronger, I realized the potential I had to effect positive changes in the people around me.
What types of students have you worked with?
While most of my clientele have been middle-aged and professionals, I have experience working with youth, adolescents, and older individuals too.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
One of my clients (female) recently achieved a personal best of 41 push-ups in just 60 seconds!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
While having a certification is important (and definitely shows that one cares about their job), it is not everything. We make sure our trainers have plenty of in-the-trenches experience beyond their cert. to ensure the best results for our clients. A good trainer MUST be adatpable and have the critical thinking skills to treat each client's situation in a unique way.
Additionally, bear in mind that this industry sticks to the old adage "you get what you pay for". If achieving and maintaining your dream body is that important to you, it is definitely worth the extra money to hire the best!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
General questions we like clients to think about:
-How often per week you would like to work with a trainer
-Do you have access to equipment (either a home gym or a gym membership with guest privileges)
-Will you be able to make the financial and time commitment necessary to see the results you want
-What do you look for in a trainer
-Do you have S.M.A.R.T. goals? (Specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-bound)
