Specialist Trainer
West Loop Athletic Club 

 What has been the key to your success as a CAC trainer?

The biggest key for me is listening to my clients, and being able to adapt to where they are that day. People aren’t going to have the same energy level each session, or they might be dealing with an injury, lack of sleep, etc. After assessing where they are mentally and physically, I adjust the workout so they can get the most out of each session.

What has been the greatest accomplishment that a client of yours has achieved?

I have been working with a client who is a runner. Her goal was to gain strength, and become a faster runner. When we started, she could barely bench press 8lb dumbbells for 3 sets of 10 repetitions. By the time we finished, she could use 20lb dumbbells for her bench press, and could perform 3 sets of strict pushups with her feet elevated. We worked a lot on core strength and balance, and improved leg power output with different types of sprint intervals. For her latest 1/2 marathon, she ran the fastest mile average she has ever run, and ran the race without pain.  

Jennifer Bonner

Elite Trainer
Wicker Park Athletic Club

What has been the key to your success as a CAC Trainer?

I started in the fitness industry a little later in life after years in the corporate culture. I think that experience gave me a good insight into the challenges that my clients face as they navigate their fitness journey with the stressors of deadlines, office life and work issues. I can relate to their challenges and provide them with the support they need to still meet their goals. I'm often a sounding board for these issues as well. 

I also think my upbeat, encouraging attitude has contributed to my success. My fitness programs are not easy, but I celebrate little steps because it's not a race to the finish.

What has been the greatest accomplishment that a client of yours has achieved?

A client of mine recently lost 30 pounds and gained a ton of confidence working with me 3-times a week.  She hadn't focused on self-care since her mom passed away two years prior.  Now she "loves" squats and feels more in control of her life and future. Her accomplishments are very inspiring.
