There are many personal fitness trainers in Chicago. Which one should you choose? Be careful! Personal training is an unregulated profession. Anyone can call himself (or herself) a personal trainer. Checking certifications isn't much help either. Most of the personal training certification tests I've taken were ridiclulously easy. And I've seen many "Certified" personal trainers doing some very stupid things.
There are thousands of personal trainers in Chicago that can say they are certified. That doesn't mean much. Not many of these personal trainers can also say that they have been named one of the "Best Personal Trainers in America" by Men's Journal magazine (the past two years in a row!). If you're going to hire a personal trainer, why not pick one who has been featured in the Army Times, Maximum Fitness magazine, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun Times, the Chicago RedEye, Chicago Health and Beauty magazine, Crain's Chicago Business, Personal Fitness Professional magazine, Experience Life magazine, and Chicago's Windy City Sports magazine. Choose a personal trainer who has been published in the Mensa Bulletin, and who has been recruited by the editors of three fitness publications to contribute chapters to their books.
Hi. I'm Clint Phillips, and I've taught classes for people who want to be personal trainers. I've lectured on fitness at Northwestern University, DePaul University, Columbia College, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. I've done talk radio shows on fitness, I've been interviewed by several university researchers, and I've also been asked to speak about exercise, weight loss and nutrition to Mensa, the Girl Scouts, the YMCA, the Salvation Army, the National Electrical Contractors Association, and the Evanston Bicycling Club. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with the Chicago Black Hawks hockey team. I am the only Chicago personal trainer who was named one of the "Best Personal Trainers in America" (second highest point total) by the National Fitness Hall of Fame and Museum.
Personal training is all I do, and I'm very serious about being good at it. If you're thinking about just going through the motions, then please don't call me. But if you are serious about making a change, and are ready to work at it, then I will get you in the best shape of your life.
I don't just do Personal Training in Chicago. I also see people in Evanston, Wilmette, Skokie, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glenview, Des Plaines, Rosemont, Glencoe, Northfield, Niles, Morton Grove, and more. Call (312) 371-6107 to see if I can cover your area!
