About this pro

I am passionate about training people and care about their weekly, monthly progress! I have been training and helping people reach their goals for about 8 years now under two companies such as, Functional Athlete in La Grange IL, and Tom Nelson Training in Mount Prospect IL. My programs are individualized to fit the need of the person by their age and physical capabilities (what they can and cannot do). I offer both online and one on one/group training! Distance is not an obstacle! I have my contact information as  24/7 so that they can connect with me any time if they need anything regarding the program! I am a track and field athlete and coach and I make sure to get the best of our people and make them see they can do and feel so much better. I love what I do!! 

I enjoy watching people progress and become physcially fit! Being happy and healthy with the changes they make mentally and physically!

    Karston acts in a professional manner even online. His knowledge expands to all fitness areas and he’s always available to help when needed. He designed a fitness plan specifically for my needs and goals. I would recommend Karston to anyone looking for an online personal fitness trainer.
