The GH Team Keeps Growing With TWO More Talented Coaches

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

At GH we are committed to hiring the BEST college coaches who are ready to move past the traveling and win/loss focus of college coaching and instead help transform people’s lives in a one-on-one environment.  We recruit coaches with the job title “COACH REAL PEOPLE OFF THE FIELD” and we are thrilled to formally announce the addition of two very experienced and successful coaches to the team team.  Welcome Erin Ekeberg and Dan Zierfuss! Erin will be working in our Glenview facility, while Dan has joined Bucktown.

A Little about Erin:
Most recently, Assistant Head Coach at Northwestern University where she was also a rock star college player. Erin not only is a talented coach, she is a big mind and we are thrilled to have her talent on the team. Erin graduated cum laude from Northwestern and also cum laude from Georgetown Law. Fortunately for Northwestern and GH, Erin decided her passion was to help people in a one-on-one environment, went back to coaching after working in law, and is now dedicated to helping GH clients! You can read more about Erin on our website:,erin-ekeberg.html

A Little More About Dan:

Dan has been a college coach for more than 6 years, ranging from Football to Track to Cross Country.  Most recently, he was Head Coach of Track and Cross Country at Knox College rising to the position of head coach after demonstrating his leadership and success as a talented leader.  Dan was a leader all the way back to his days at Beloit College where he had the rare honor of being the team captain for BOTH the Football and Track and Field teams.  We are thrilled to have Dan’s huge heart and strength (after all, he is a former Discus and Shotput Competitor) on our Bucktown team.  Read more about Dan here:,dan-zierfuss.html

So Much Has Happened, We Forgot to Blog About It!

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

We’ve been so busy at GH growing our team (welcome Kelly and Tiffany), growing our relationships with the community, growing the GH Method, and watching some of our kids grow (the next generation of GH Coaches are starting to walk already)….that we forgot to blog about it!

So here we are back again in the blogging world. We’ve gotten out a lot recently into the real world by featuring GH coaches at events like Chicago Style’s night of Modern Beauty, the Chicago Triathlon where we shared a tent with the Triathlon training company TogetherWeTri, the Ol Phun 5K run in Glenview, and several more. We love getting out into the community and really helping people understand the power of the GH Method by doing the GH Challenge …. which is where people do one exercise with a GH Coach in an attempt to make “3 Lbs Heavier Than 6 lbs.” The response to this mini-coaching has been remarkable as we have found people really appreciate FEELING the difference between using their energy wisely. The more someone has worked out and especially if they have had a personal trainer, the more they GET THE FEELING of working out wisely. Thanks Kelly Lindsey, Nick Rubel, Tiffany Martin, Peter Hahaj, and Edyta Bujalska who have joined us at some of these events!

We continue to recruit NCAA college coaches into GH and have a few exciting new team members that we are looking forward to introducing to our clients later in 2011. Over the past two years, we have worked very hard to perfect the training and preparation coursework for new coaches who are joining GH and the program is intensive, effective, and helps our coaches really launch themselves into the GH journey so they can help lead GH clients through the journey themselves. Each and every one of our GH Coaches experiences the GH Method on themselves and uses that experience to help make them a better coach, a better person, and a better guide to others on their own path towards improved health and wellness with only two hours per week in the gym.

We continue to do so much more than most people expect from personal trainers in Chicago and around the country. We are passionate about changing lives one-by-one and look forward to continuing to tell the stories of our coaches, our clients, and our growth! As always, read more by going to

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Consult a Personal Trainer

Friday, August 20th, 2010

These days, we have been very hectic with our daily job while we usually lack time for our personal activities. We all need a break from all the strains from our day by day work. Sometimes, we just don’t know where to start when it comes to seeking fitness facilitation. Well, that’s the start when we have to do something for ourselves to be healthy and fit. This is just one of the major reasons why we should consult a personal trainer. Other than that, there are more plenty reasons that would actually convince you to start seeking for a personal trainer’s help now.

Northbrook personal trainers and Glenview personal trainers believe that there are more to life than getting ourselves mugged with our daily job life. These trainers believe that we should work on our body to get fit and naturally healthy. Since we all are not aging backwards, we have to keep a vigorous body as much as we can. And this can of course be possible with the help of personal trainers. Before saying no, you better start reading the following reasons to get you induced hiring your personal fit trainer.

1. Get Challenge
We can fool everyone, but not ourselves. We may confirm to everyone that we’re in shape and strong, but we can’t fool ourselves. As I mentioned above, we are not aging backwards, thus, we need someone’s help in this kind of case. We can consult GH Northbrook personal trainers to help us take challenges. These challenges shape not only our bodies but also our insistence.

2. Work Out at Home Alone
One of the benefits that we could get after finishing a session with Chicago personal trainers is that we can actually already work out by ourselves. That is, we may only need a little supervision from someone like GH Highland Park personal trainers, but for a less posh cost. By experiencing what it is to be trained, we can, on the other note, be familiar with how to train somebody else.

3. Physical and Behavioral Training
Working out requires dedication. Northbrook personal trainers don’t only train you physically but also behaviorally. They help you become dedicated in everything you do and decide for. They also teach you how to be patient. Since working out is a no pain, no gain activity, trainers like Highland Park personal trainers would teach you how to be patient.

4. Motivation
Facing in front of the mirror alone while working out is motivating, but knowing that someone else is looking after you whilst working out is more motivating. Better consult personal trainers for better results.

5. Physical Purposes
Take note that working out is not only for one to tone muscles and stuff. Personal trainers would help you to achieve the body requirements you need in order to qualify into sports events as well. Alternatively, you can also consult a personal trainer in order to help heal injuries that you had like arthritis, heart disease, and any other disease.
