I began working with Ron 4 months ago and without a doubt it’s been one of the best decisions I ever made. I tried to lose weight on my own and with another trainer but I did not succeed. Ron tailored an approach to fit my needs. At first our workouts seemed a bit unusual to me as they were geared more toward development of larger muscle groups as opposed to traditional cardio workouts. Over time Ron incorporated cardio work as well. Ron also provides nutritional / dietary guidelines. The combination of these approaches increased my metabolic rate and turned the tide for me. I have lost 6 inches off my waist and the results have greatly exceeded my expectations. I am more motivated now than ever as I’ve learned how to improve my health and appearance without having to starve myself. Ron was fun and supportive every step of the way and the workouts are held in a private facility. He cracked the code I have been struggling with for years.
Not only does Ron at Tri-Fitness work with achieving my fitness goals-he also can work on sports-specific goals. Last winter I had to get ready for a ski trip. For six weeks, Ron changed my workout to fit the sport of skiing. Not only did my skiing improve, but for the first tie ever, my legs did not fatigue like they use to. My core strength was unbelievable do to the conditioning program he put me through. What a great ski experience!
Ron is top notch. After baseball last summer my son (13) told me he felt “slow”. We both knew this was mostly true – he was among the slowest on the team. We asked around of friends here in Chicago for youth fitness trainers and were referred to Ron. The rest was easy – he’s a great guy, he knows his stuff and he’s amazing with kids. After a few months with Ron, my son is now among the 3 fastest kids on the team in the exact areas that it counts – catching fly balls and sprinting the bases. It’s not only his speed that’s improved, his overall strength is off the charts compared to where he was.
Ron has been a mentor to me since I was in High School. Over the years, I’ve learned more and more about my body and how a can improve my overall performance as an NFL player. Without Ron’s guidance and knowledge, I would not have the success I have accomplished.

I’ve been working with Ron for over 5 years now. I can confirmly say he is one of the best performance coaches in the Chicago area. He is constantly updating his knowledge, and staying up to date with the newest findings. and he will tailor your program specific to your ability and sport. It doesn’t matter if you are a high level or lower level athlete, youth or adult, Ron can help you improve. He can do it all. I can honestly say, I wouldn’t be where I am today without his help. He creates a great environment. I would truly recommend Ron for any young athlete or adult out there.

I started working with Ron when I was 13 years old. I was a scholarship athlete for soccer at ISU. I am now an assistant coach at ISU. When I worked with Ron, he helped me attain my goals and he did this through experience and knowledge in training kids. He has a very positive and encouraging attitude and always motivates the athlete. Ron is very observant of your technique and pays close attention to all details to improve your speed, agility, strength power and flexibility. During and after college I continued to train with Ron

Training with Ron has greatly improved my performance. My vertical jump improved by 45%, horizontal (long jump) by over 2 feet, speed and strength has greatly improved my overall performance on the softball field. Gaining this new strength and agility has allowed my pitching velocity to increase 6 mph, my hitting velocity to increase 4 mph and both are continuing to rise. Having a coach that cares as much as Ron is very encouraging and creates a positive training sessions.

If I didn’t have Ron as a trainer, I am not sure I would be where I am at today. He helped me reach my goal of playing college baseball. He is one of the best trainers in the city for athletes and can get you great results.
