Personal Trainers & Staff
When you start training with Chicago Family Fit, you will notice something different from the very beginning. Your trainer will work with your body, health history, diet, and previous experience to develop a strategy for success. You will train in a safe and efficient manner to reach your goals, and you won't be expected to buy expensive memberships or risk your health on unproven supplements. At Chicago Family Fit, you are working with a professional; that means we do not use profane language, we are prepared for each appointment on time, we do not take phone calls during your session, and we are dressed appropriately for each appointment. Meet the team!
Kyle Zelazny, CSCS, Owner and Fitness Professional
Kyle Zelazny has a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Nutrition from Ashland University, and is a fully insured CSCS Certified trainer (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists). Additionally he has experience with special populations from age 5-100 years old.
Originally from Westerville, Ohio, fitness has always played an important part in Kyle's life since he started playing sports at age 6. Growing up, Kyle excelled at many sports and was an All-Conference 3-sport athlete in high school (Football, Wrestling, and Track). In 2002, Kyle earned a football scholarship to Ashland University, where he completed his Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition. While at Ashland, Kyle earned All-Conference honors on the field, as well as Academic All- Conference in the classroom.
After moving to Chicago in May, 2007 upon college graduation, Kyle started working with geriatric populations at a local retirement community. This experience, which proved very valuable, involves special populations with issues such as joint replacements, history of heart attack, stroke recovery, and posture problems, just to name a few. While continuing to help local seniors, Kyle wanted to reach out to more people to help them improve their lives also. That is when he started Chicago Family Fit.
Rather than being concerned only with the many health-related factors and variations in our society, Kyle takes a different approach. His vision is to succeed not only by reaching out to individuals in the form of personal training, but also by helping them improve the health of others around them.
Kyle is experienced in developing exercise programs for people with the following conditions:
- Back Surgery
- Joint Replacements
- Heart Attack
- High Blood Pressure
- Learning Disabilities
