“I am extremely impressed with Athletic Revolution and how they’ve worked with my daughter. She has built up endurance, strength, explosiveness, and confidence; all of which are reflective within her athletic performance. The coaches have helped to correct her movement patterns, build on her agility, and after she sustained injuries during competition, they continued to work with her to bring back full mobility in a safe and efficient manner. The atmosphere is one of motivation, encouragement, and a sense of teamwork that brings out the best in my daughter.”  -Debbie Dicristofano

“When I first started the 6 week transformation contest I was most nervous about the nutrition portion. I was very afraid that I wouldn’t be able to consistently eat healthier or that I would be extremely bored making the same foods over and over again and completely fall off the wagon.  My accountability coach, Trevor, helped me so much along the way.  I was constantly emailing him with questions and issues, and he was a huge support throughout the six weeks and beyond. I know I would not have been as successful if it wasn’t for him and the encouragement of the other two coaches, Nathan and Brian. I have been going in to workout at Athletic Revolution for several months, and love that it’s such a welcoming and friendly environment.  It really feels more like a family than a typical gym.  I know they care about me and all of their clients.  They know how to push me harder than I could ever do on my own, and I’ve become much stronger both physically and mentally because of them.” -Dorothy Such

“I look forward to going to this gym each and every workout.  From the day I joined this facility a year ago – the staff (Brian, Trevor & Nate) have treated me like I have been a member for years.  Although I could go on and on – my 5 top highlights:
1) Even though I participate in the group training – the staff gives great one-on-one attention starting from the initial abilities assessment all the way to  getting to know you & your personal goals.  They are always available to discuss and recommend approaches for your particular situation whether it be how to alter a workout due to an injury, reviewing menus to recommend the best dinner options, preparing home/travel workouts, etc.  Whatever your challenge or question – this group does whatever they can to help you succeed.
2) Everyday you come in you will get a solid workout.  The best part – everyday is different!  I love the variety and the way the workouts hit all different parts of the body.
3)They provide a full and realistic approach to healthy living.
4) Even as the gym has continued to grow – it remains an incredibly welcoming and motivating environment.  Everyone knows each other and encourages one another – really like a gym “family.”  When new people join – everyone is so friendly and brings the newcomer into the fold.
5) A focus beyond just the workouts:  the facility plans group activities which are always a blast and allows members/trainers to hang out beyond just the workouts.  Some recent activities includes: participating in a 5K Mud obstacle course, charity event at a food bank, facility picnic and educational session on  resistance band workouts.” -Laura Surowicz

“Deciding to do the 6 week challenge at Athletic Revolution was the best decision I could have ever made. Brian, Trevor, and Nathan are so dedicated to each and every person that enters their gym.  They are all extremely educated in fitness/exercise and nutrition and make “getting healthy” so much fun!  Even in a training group of 10, they personalize the work out to your ability and really care about people as individuals.  I have never felt so strong and healthy and it shows in my results! I am so happy that I chose to do the 6 week challenge and cannot wait to continue!! Thank you guys for everything!!” -Leah Droze

“I have joined many health clubs/gyms over the years with little success.  I would join and not go, go and get a minimal work-out or go to classes and leave unsure if I was doing things right.  At Athletic Revolution I have seen success due in part to having a work-outs specially designed with modifications to meet the members levels, great trainers who advise and correct me if I am doing something wrong and advance flexible scheduling which ensures I attend.  Nate, Trevor and Brian are all very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable.  The classes are fun, physically demanding and the environment is very friendly.  They go above and beyond, for example, I broke my foot and was limited to sitting exercises for a couple months.  They put together a special program just for me!” -Laura Cohen 

“Athletic Revolution is an awesome place and I highly recommend it.  I have been coming here for about 5 months and it continues to be challenging, exciting and new. There’s always different exercises that the instructors have you try that keeps the class interesting.  The instructors are encouraging, engaged and will work with you to achieve your fitness goals. They are always receptive to your concerns and work with you during your workout to ensure you are doing them correctly and reduce the possibility of injury. This is a great place to workout!!” -Karl Grom

“My son and I been a part of Athletic Revolution for about 1 year, and we love it! From the time we joined, Nate and Trevor have made working out fun. I used to dread going to the gym, but their knowledgeable and caring training approach makes it very motivating.  They focus on really understanding your goals, your individual fitness level, or in my case, lack of fitness level :), and providing the tools to help you be successful. Brian has also been very helpful anytime I have had any questions about schedules, billing, or any upcoming activity.  I have watched as their gym has grown and no matter how big they get, they always make you feel important and like family.  Aside from all the classes they offer, they have planned several group activities outside of the gym, they give back to the community, and they even attended some of my son’s soccer games. This has been their biggest differentiator, for me.  They care about you as a person, not just as a client.  I’ve referred several friends who also love these guys, but the best part of all has been watching my 10 year old son develop a love for fitness. Thanks for that guys!   Check them out, you won’t regret it!”  -Jelly Prado

“Great meeting place. Fun trainers focused on your well being and athletic development. Daily sessions work well around my work schedule and the staff is very accomodating. Fitness challenges, monthly workout updates, and nutrition counseling helps me stay motivated and push harder than when I was in my 20s. I’m a 40 year old with a spirit to never quit. Thanks, Athletic Revolution.”  -Jeff Sing

“I never knew it would be so fun to work out. The employees at Athletic Revolution Mundelein make you feel comfortable yet challenge your work outs. They teach and correct your form while working out and also educate you on nutrition. I joined the club over six months ago and it has changed my life for the better. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and pulse has gone down. I have more energy, I am stronger, lost weight and basically I am healthier. Thank you ATHLETIC REVOLUTION MUNDELEIN!” -Debbie Zinkel

“This place is amazing! Nate, Trevor and Brian make working out fun. They really get to know everyone and make it very personal. They are so supportive and encouraging. I’ve been a member for almost a year and wouldn’t workout anywhere else!”  -Anjali Grancorvitz

“Love this place. I finally got back into taking care of myself and found Nate, Trever and Brian at Athletic Revolution.  Their classes are challenging and fun. I like the laid back causal atmosphere of the place.  Everyone in class is there for the same reasons, to get healthy and strong!! I’ve been a member for five months and I can say I feel better about myself. I have more energy to get me through my day with two very energetic kids. My lower back pain is gone from strengthening my core and my body is becoming stronger and toned.”  –Michelle Miles

“I started working out at Athletic Revolution back in December.  Trevor and Nate did a little test on me and I found out that I have ankle and hamstring problems that I needed to fix.  They catered the workouts to my personal weight-loss goals, and I’ve already lost 5# in a few weeks.  The classes are fun, and I always feel really great after the workout.  These guys truly know how to motivate and help you workout.  And they also will help you with nutritional advice as well.  I’ve tried working out on my own, I’ve tried dieting on my own….neither of these things worked. Trevor and Nate are the real deal.  My only complaint is that back in December the heat was not on that high, so it was a little chilly in the gym…but it looks like they fixed that now.”  -Nick Johnson

“I have been training for about 6 weeks now and every time I complete a workout I feel so great and refreshed (but slightly exhausted)! Trevor is such a great trainer and knows so much about how the body works and how your body should look and feel during each training session. I trust Trevor 100% and have enjoyed learning something new about my body and have been so excited to see the new things I can do each time I train. My favorite thing about the training sessions is that each day is different and when we finish a month the sessions and workouts change. I love that it isn’t the same thing over and over again. Get off your boring treadmill and come train in a super fun group setting!” -Lauren Hines

“I’m a huge fan of this facility. I have been an athlete forever, but have never gotten into working out because I get bored and don’t see huge gains from it. Well I feel huge gains from working out here and have enjoyed myself while doing it. I have already increased my flexibility significantly in only a number of weeks and can feel myself getting stronger. I love working out with friends and my wife and really enjoy the group training sessions. I’m excited to continue to make progress and do even more specific exercises for my personal goals.” -Jacob Hines

“Best trainers around, nothing but wonderful things to say!”  -Samantha Jean

“This facility’s program has helped me lose 5% body fat in just 6 weeks. So happy with my results! It’s really geared toward your wants and needs.” -Bree Zinkel

“The trainers truly care about their clients, they make sure that not a single detail in your training session is missed. The facility is very well organized and its not just a regular old-fashion gym. Great place, highly recommended!” -Simona Kal 

“Super fun atmosphere here! Whether we are working out to Disney classics or Imagine Dragons – the group is usually having fun and working hard. The workouts are a quick 40 minutes and you leave feeling accomplished and exhausted. Trevor is a great trainer; patient, encouraging, and positive. They set you up here for success!!”  -Lauren Hutcheons

“What a neat facility. Top of the line equipment and trainers.” -Jeremy Vale

“This is the most unique, unconditional, well educated, fun, exciting, drama free training, I have ever encountered. I look forward to working out, I am shocked how fast the time flies and I am done. I have Never enjoyed or looked forward to working out. For the first time ever, I can’t wait!!! So for everyone who may be debating about the same old places, I guarantee this will be your one and only place to see all the “latest” equipment, not boring, no hum drum, no WOW do you have a lot to lose attitude. The young men that own this and train, are by far highly educated, completely non-judgmental, knowledgeable and very professional. This truly lives up to its name of being the Athletic Revolution!” -Judy Allness

“I worked one on one with Trevor for many months working on many different problem area’s that I had been trying to change for years. As a mother of two in the 50+ category Trevor made customized daily work outs to help me tone, define, and achieve lean mussel in placed I never thought possible. If you are in search of a personable & dedicated group of young men to help you achieve your personal fitness goals “Athletic Revolution” is the only place to go!”  -Paula Lohrmann

“I had been searching for an affordable group workout program for a long time before I stumbled upon Athletic Revolution’s $21 for 21 days promotion. The team at Athletic Revolution provides small group, circuit training, while also taking the time to individualize each session to meet your individual needs and personal goals. Before my 21 days were up, I decided to sign up for a year of classes. These guys know their stuff and provide way more than just group exercise.–nutrition, at home workout options and promote continuous improvement.” -Mary Margaret 

“This may be my first impression but I have a strong feeling that moving forward it’s going to be 5 STARS all the way! Just had my FMS evaluation with Brian last night and I’m excited to be moving forward with a new exercise regiment for this 50+ body! Feeling like a 25 year old, mentally right now, (so psyched!) and looking forward to coming close to feeling like one physically! — these guys seem really dedicated to their clients (family like atmosphere) and they’re extremely knowledgable! They’re “huggers” too, just like me! LOVE IT!”  -Denise Gaulin 

“I didn’t know how lucky I was to find Nate Johnson until I started hearing other people’s horror stories of their personal training experiences. From trainers who didn’t know what they were doing, who would yell at them and who were down right unsafe. Nate Johnson has the knowledge and the education to give you the positive training experience you are looking for. He brings joy to everything he does and he has a great personality. Don’t get me wrong, once he starts training his game face is on so you won’t be getting away with anything. He is like a guiding light in that dark hallway you go through when you are trying to get fit. You just have to let him guide you until you can come out into the light.” -Oil Bearmantas

“I had never been a gym fan, not ever. But when Nathan convinced me to give it a go for a couple of weeks, I was to say the least skeptical. And after the first session I was so sore, the soreness in your muscles that makes you feel like you have earn sleep. Nathan’s first question to me was simple, what results do you want? What muscle groups do you want to strengthen and how do you want to look? I wanted lean strength and stamina, with a strong core strength. Nat worked me hard and within 2 weeks I could see the results, the birth of abs. The the definition of muscle throughout my body. We never rested, active rests were all I was allowed. This pushed my athletic stamina forward leaps and bounds. Keeping my heart rate up and burning fat fast. Nat used to always say ” what we do here in the gym is only 20%. The rest is in your life style, how you eat is the most important thing for your body. The most important thing if you want to see the results your asking for.” This statement sat with me incredibly well, because this was my philosophy on weight loss and health maintenance from the beginning. Other than being an incredible source knowledge on matters of muscle growth, form and exercises. Nat has the most caring and playful nature, always fun and uplifting to be around. This helps the ‘want’ part of getting to the gym. Though now I do not get the pleasure of working out with Nathan any longer, I exercise his techniques and training styles to sculpt and develop the strength and body I want. Nathan is and has been the most positive effect on my life and lifestyle. I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer and friend.” –Sean Lingens

“Athletic Revolution is the real thing. I have experienced multiple group trainings and no one compares to these guys. They have an assessment they do with you before you become a client that makes so much sense. It allows them to know more about you personally and helps them keep everyone safe during the group training. They follow up with you and they keep their commitment and promises to you. They have a lot of knowledge in the area of nutrition as well. Believe me when I say they are different and they are well worth the time and money. Since being with them I understand nutrition a lot better and am in better shape overall. These guys are the real deal!”  -Michelle Hollingsworth
