Personal Training Levels

At Chicago Athletic Clubs, we have carefully curated our personal training program to meet our members' needs. In addition to providing different modes of personal training, we also offer different personal training levels. Each level is designed to provide comprehensive support for unique personal training scenarios. CAC offers three levels of trainers to help you reach your goals: Expert, Elite, and Specialist. They’re ranked by a combination of experience, accreditation, and hours put in each week.

Expert Personal Training

Expert personal trainers are equipped with a broad range of knowledge from training for weight loss to sports and athletic conditioning. One of our experts can help you focus your workouts, foster motivation, and achieve your desired results. CAC's Expert personal trainers embody what you may think of as the "traditional" personal trainers, but with the advanced experience, proven methodology, and industry-leading standards of Chicago Athletic Clubs. 

Elite Personal Training

Elite personal trainers have expanded their skills by specializing in various disciplines, including injury prevention, flexibility training, and pre-post natal, to name a few. They are skilled problem solvers who can confidently enhance strength, challenge balance, and condition the body. Elite personal trainers are perfect for those facing a unique challenge, overcoming a difficult setback, or working to improve in an area of specialty.

Specialist Personal Training

Specialist personal trainers excel in a specific focus area, often one that requires years of in-depth or first-hand experience. Their advanced skills include marathon training, triathlon coaching, and training for special populations, such as heart transplant patients and cancer survivors. Specialist personal trainers also act as a bridge between physical therapy and recovery to fully rehabilitate any injury.
