Weight loss is a common New Year’s goal for many local residents and a Chicago boot camp is the most effective way to get you there. Long gone are the days where personal training is available only to the rich. Get the services of a certified nutritionist and personal trainer for as low as $1 this holiday season.

Chicago Personal trainer helps local residents put fitness first, even when they feel like they’ve “tried it all.” For ten years, Tobi Davidson had given her body over to producing four amazing children. Deep down, she knew she had been so busy taking care of everyone else that she never made time to care for herself. “After countless diets and purchasing several workout videos from infomercials, I knew it was time to get my body back in shape,” she said, adding that Chicago boot camp was just the right combination of support and services she needed to do just that.

Chicago boot camp is hard work, make no mistake, but it is also fun. Several times a week, participants gather to spend an hour focusing on sculpting their bodies and burning calories. The stalwarts meet at 5 AM before work, while others choose to meet after work at 5 PM. No two classes are ever exactly alike, but they all involve a combination of cardio, resistance training, and core conditioning. Some classes may involve squats, lunges, jumping jacks and push-ups, while other classes may include tire flipping, skipping rope, running through obstacle courses, or balancing on Bosu balls.

“I’m essentially looking for people who are ready to give 100 percent commitment,” explains Chicago boot camp owner Craig Kastning. “I’m inspired by people who have really tried it all, are at their wit’s end, and are ready to work their rears off to reach their goals. These are people who understand that they need to make broad-sweeping changes to get in shape, but they just need the system to get them there.” He adds that his Chicago boot camp gives participants everything they need to succeed, from customized nutrition plans and tools to track their progress, to a consistent workout schedule and body of supportive peers.

“We’re seeing amazing results at our Chicago boot camp from our dedicated tribe,” Craig adds. “Grace Sebert lost 27 pounds, Denise Van Cleve got down to just 14 percent body fat, Jennifer Widger went down six dress sizes, and John Forrest gained 10 pounds of lean muscle mass.” He explains that different people have different measurements for success, but he helps people decide what they want out of the program in their initial consultation. “We sit down and discuss health history, nutrition, goals and dreams,” he says. “The personal attention you get with my boot camp is second-to-none.”    

New participants need not be intimidated by the idea of a Chicago weight loss. Each person is encouraged to just do what he or she can. There will be no drill sergeant barking out orders. Instead, there is very much a communal spirit of “we’re all in this together.” Sign up for a free consultation and a week’s worth of boot camp for $1 at
