Push Fitness Makes Fitness Training Personal, Fun and Challenging

By Kelly Church

Push Fitness is Schaumburg, IL's most established private personal training studio, offering personal training sessions, group classes and nutritional counseling. The gym's goal is to cater each session to the individual for results that clients have been looking for, but haven't been getting.

"Our personal training programs are all about changing our client's current lifestyle habits and pushing them within their own abilities to finally get the results they're looking for," owner Josh Steckler said. "Our programs focus on everything from nutrition and exercise to sleep and stress, and everything else that affects health and wellness. Our trainers?the extra time to make sure our clients are making both short-term and long-term progress."

Steckler said personal training is great for everyone, from young teenage athletes to seniors, and everyone in between. Every session is catered to individual needs, and are always fun and challenging for trainees.

"We like to laugh and joke with our clients, but at the same time we're serious about seeing improvements with each and every session," Steckler said. "Most clients leave with a feeling of exhaustion, but energized at the same time."

The gym's Fittest Loser program has been a staple since 2009 and was developed to promote the studio's personal training programs. As part of the program, the gym selects a group of members who want to lose weight, but have previously been unsuccessful. The group works with a personal trainer for the next three months and competes against their fellow trainees. The winner is chosen based on the largest percentage of body weight lost at the end of the three months.

According to the gym's website, trainers strive to educate each person on why and how certain things are done, so results are visible and long-lasting. Teaching lifelong healthy eating and workout habits are essential.

"To date, we've helped over 45 contestants lose over a total of 2300 pounds," Steckler said. "It's a fun contest that really lets us help people in the community while showing what can be accomplished when someone is surrounded by a positive support system."

Personal training is offered in three, six and nine-month increments, so each client can choose their own duration of commitment. Clients receive training sessions two to three times per week, and sessions are offered throughout the day.

Group fitness classes include bootcamps, and classes that focus on TRX training, medicine balls, toning, the butt and arms, and one called Burn that's only description reads, "You just have to trust us on this one."
