How to Keep Off the Holiday Pounds

It’s that time of year again where we overindulge in the foods we love. Pumpkin pie, Christmas cookies, eggnog, wine, the list goes on. The holiday season is nearly two months long and is a delicious recipe for unwanted weight gain. Although it’s important that we enjoy our time and food together with our families, [...]

Looking Great For Your Holiday Party

It’s that time of year again.  The days are getting shorter, the air colder, and quite possibly our pants are starting to get a little tighter.  For many of us, the winter holidays will bring with them more food, more desserts, more alcohol, and a few extra lbs.  It happens every year.  But why sacrifice [...]

Tis the Season (To Be Intent)

It’s no secret that Chicago winters can be grueling and can sap you of any resolve.  Forecasters have predicted one of the worst winters in decades.  It’s going to be cold and the wind will whip right through any and all layers of clothing you’ll be wearing.  Just the thought of stepping outside can void [...]

Most of the clients are looking to be fit (my category) and does that very well. The owner most-often on site, Sean Armstead, will do just about anything [...]

I've started personal training sessions with Sara who came highly recommended.  I've tried sessions everywhere with everybody over many years and this has been my best experience.  She is motivating, focused, and encouraging.  I'm not getting any bullsh@#t with her.  If your serious about getting in shape I encourage anyone to go here.  I like [...]

I've been going to Phenomenal to work out for nearly two years now - I never thought I'd be one to get into the workout routine, but I did. Every Tuesday and Thursday morning it's like seeing family there. We all help and support each other even if we're with different trainers. I've never felt [...]

I have always been into working out and playing sports, but never worked out with a personal trainer until I went to Phenomenal Fitness. The facility is quite spacious and the staff is great and treats everyone respectfully. I was pretty skinny when I started and now have gained over 10lbs of muscle, over the [...]

I've been going to Phenomenal for nearly a year now. I never worked out consistenly in a gym nor with a trainer so this was a new experience for me regarding working out. I've always been a runner and got my work out that way. After working out with Zak all these months, I've have [...]

A friend (DC Madhatter) introduced me to Phenomenal Fitness two years ago. At first I didn't appreciate all the benefits. Goofing off and not doing what was told for success, I thought "I can do this at home." Wrong! Yes, I went back to Phenomenal Fitness recently. This is an appreciation note of thanks for [...]
