What Does Training Look Like?

No gimmicks or special products: People were fit long before we started living and working in cities dominated by sedentary jobs and cars.

Tracked progress based on your goals: If your goal is weight loss, you're going to weigh in. If it's strength, we'll steadily build muscle and coordination.

Very organized training: There won't be sudden surprises like member-gimmick-training gyms. You'll know what to expect every session.

Collaborative work environment: If an exercise is causing pain or is a complete deterrent, you can say so and we'll find another way to meet your goals.

It will be work, but you'll be safe and feel great. We'll take things slowly at first. As you get more comfortable, you'll be able to work on your own.

Steven Mack's Story

I'm from the city of Chicago where basketball is king but, I didn't play sports until I was in high school because...I wasn't so awesome at basketball. My favorite cousin, Richard, also had a name for me, "Cousin Pudgy".

When I finally did get into athletics it changed my life.

When I finished my high school career, I decided to finally shed some weight. I went from a chubby 235 lbs to an admittedly slim 203 lbs. A close personal friend of mine encouraged me to try college football where I learned a lot about strength and conditioning but also struggled with my weight reaching upwards of 257 lbs and for the first time, numerous injuries.

Along the way, I discovered my passion for learning about fitness and the body and how it all worked. I have a bachelor's in health sciences and I'm a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

To be honest I'm not sure how many injuries I've had but I've had physical therapy for my right knee (after I tore my LCL), right hamstring 2 or 3 times, right shoulder, a breathing issue, and left hip as well as having stress fractures in both of my hands.

Those experiences and my constant passion for learning, my mother is a school teacher and I never feel like I can learn enough, are what I feel make me personally different. What makes my business different is limiting sessions to no more than 4 people so we can keep the quality high and the relationships both personal and private.

People like me and my clients invest in themselves and want to be the very best in both their careers and their personal lives. We have goals, need a little extra help and a plan to get there but, above all else, we're committed. Life is too short to spend all day exercising when we could've been using more effective methods and gotten to spend more time with our friends and family.

I believe that everyone can get the benefits of quality personal training and nutrition coaching in a private or small circle of comfortable friends and family.

Set and achieve your goal.

Steven is here to help and lead you to your fitness goals in a quiet and focused environment.
