Lakeview Chicago Personal Trainers


Jack is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist who graduated from Central Michigan University. He has been training people since his last two years in college. After college he got hired on as a strength coach at a sports performance facility in Michigan. There he got the opportunity to train athletes from every sport including some NFL players and a few Olympic Figure Skaters. As much as he enjoyed his time there he knew he wanted to move to Chicago to further his career and also get back to chasing his dream of acting. After a brief training stint in China he can finally call Chicago home. He is looking forward to working with the other talented trainers at Orange Shoe as well as helping all of the people he gets the opportunity to work with.
