Michael uniquely shapes his strength-endurance programs for weight loss / toning / sculpting focused people.

Reviews of Chicago Personal Trainer Michael Moody

Michael is the kind of personal trainer everyone needs...he doesn't push, demean, or act aggressively. His personal training standpoint is of total health and wellness...which is demonstrated with a nutrition-based system for long-term changes. Michael's approach is careful and considerate of your body, and he is great at teaching people awareness of their aches/pain/weaknesses. I strongly recommend him for a lifetime of positive changes!

Personal Trainer in Chicago FAQs 


Why hire Michael as your personal trainer in Chicago?

Hiring a personal trainer in Chicago takes the thinking out of your workouts. Essentially, you are hiring a personal health advisor to create exercise and nutritional plans based on your needs and wants. You no longer need to research or guess what might work for your body. Michael takes the guesswork out of personal fitness in Chicago and uses his expertise to help you reach your goals efficiently and without injury. For most clients, "a personal trainer near me" is most important. Luckily, Michael's facility offers free parking and is centrally located (which is easy to access for his personal training clients who reside in Bucktown, Wicker Park, West Town, West Loop, River North, Old Town, Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, Logan Square, and Lakeview).


What is the typical personal training session in Chicago like?

Depending on your goals, history in the gym, and injuries, meeting with a personal trainer in Chicago can vary greatly. Essentially, Michael's personal training sessions are individualized based on your needs and wants. Unless there’s an injury, you’ll rarely repeat the same movement during your 60-minute sessions. You can expect an appropriately challenging, varied workout that will improve your balance of strength and flexibility. You’ll also utilize a wide variety of equipment and body movements to achieve your goals. All movements and results are recorded and analyzed to improve the efficiency of your workouts. While you exercise, Michael will discuss nutrition, any challenges you face, and exercise beyond your personal training sessions in Chicago. Please note that this IS NOT a Cross Fit experience. Michael's programs are influenced by the philosophies of Gary Gray, Gray Cook, and Greg Roskopf.
