G I Jane Fitness Mchenry Personal Trainer

  • About
    Throughout our lives, we have had a passion for exercise and the science that supports it. This dedication has given us the means to take the knowledge and experience that we've gained and help people form good habits to improve their lives.
    Over the past 10 years, the health and fitness industry has been redefined. As personal trainers in Chicago, we realized the importance of incorporating these most recent innovations into our style and system of training.
    Our goal in creating G.I. Jane Fitness, has been to bridge the gap between the work of doctors, physical therapists and nutritionists with the skills and knowledge of a qualified exercise specialist. It is this collaboration that allows us to offer an unprecedented level of service with professionalism, consistency and distinction.
    G.I. Jane
    Jane began her fitness career at 13 years of age, when she realized the benefits of exercise and proper nutrition.
    While most teenagers spent time in the malls, Jane spent her time exercising. Jane, a mother of four, has always kept herself fit through exercise. She is a graduate of the Fitness Instructor Training program at McHenry County College and is certified through the American College of Sports Medicine. Jane also holds a degree as a Cancer Exercise Specialist. Jane and her five children live in Northern Illinois and spend their free time exercising, camping, boating, biking, running, good old fashioned playing and enjoying family time together.
    Jane believes that to successfully progress through the trials of life, one must challenge their mind, body, and soul to secure a feeling of wellness. Jane’s goal is to get and keep people motivated to make deliberate lifestyle changes relative to their personal responsibilities for optimal enhancement of physical, mental, and spiritual health, equaling complete wellness. Jane’s training method is generally functional. Functional training is fun and will enhance your ability to perform everyday life activities better. Jane gives no ordinary workout.

    Matt Walters
    Matt’s whole life has been centered on sports and fitness. Football and soccer were his favorites growing up. Matt’s love for football continued into Northeastern Illinois University, where he was quarterback for the Golden Eagles. Matt graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor’s degree in Park and Recreation Management and a minor in Physical Education. Matt has continued his education throughout the years, always learning new techniques and methods with which to help his clients accomplish their goals. Matt is a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM (National Association of Sports Medicine) and NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association).
    After graduation, Matt was hired as a Personal Trainer at the Multiplex in Deerfield, where he trained professionals from the Chicago Bulls and White Sox. From there, Matt managed two area health clubs, but he always kept personally training his favorite clients, including a young Olympic hopeful from Crystal Lake. In 1998, Matt started working for a premier personal training firm, based in Chicago. He trained people from all walks of life, age groups, and fitness levels.
    Matt’s passion for fitness surrounds him, whether it be to coach his son’s baseball or basketball teams, or to give motivational talks to area schools, clubs and organizations. His goals throughout the years have never changed: spreading fitness awareness, sharing the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and encouraging all to be fit.
