Senior Fitness Personal Trainer in Chicago


Michael Moody (Author, Senior Fitness Specialist, and Fitness Nutrition Specialist) has been personal training clients in Chicago since 2005. His comprehensive (individualized) personal training programs have helped seniors increase their level of independence; decrease pain/the risk of falling; lower cholesterol levels; and eliminate the symptoms resulting from diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, and more. 

Michael's "Joint Protection and Muscular Endurance" philosophy and Fall Prevention Programs are based on the guidelines from the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, and American Geriatric Society. Utilizing a series of assessments and analysis', he develops adaptable personal training programs for his senior clients to complete pain-free in his comfortable, non-competitive personal training studio (a private facility...which means less people and more room). Without a doubt, Michael's senior fitness clients achieve more muscle and bone strength, range of motion, and endurance without causing inflammation in their bodies (Read his personal trainer reviews below).

"Michael's workouts are always enjoyable because there's plenty of variety and it's never boring. I've lost 12 lbs and 6 inches around my waist! I feel great and enjoy the compliments I receive from friends and family. I would tell anyone starting to exercise to use a personal trainer in Chicago as your spring board to a healthier lifestyle."


Jim, 54, Human Resources Director

"Michael has helped me overcome a previous physical injury and the natural physical downsides of aging. He has improved my flexibility and core strength and rehabilitated previous surgeries to the point of being able to play golf almost pain free for the first time in years."

Reviews of Chicago Personal Trainer Michael Moody

I found Michael a few years ago when my husband relocated to Chicago for work...Michael helps me achieve my goal of maintaining my fitness and flexibility through functional training. His detail to proper form is so important for prevention of injury. I would like to have more time to take advantage of his knowledge of nutrition and well being...He individualizes (personal training sessions) according to my wants and needs.

"Michael is a delight! HE is truly interested in your success and strives to help you achieve your goals. The hour goes by so quickly...I have been very satisfied with my results."


Belkis, 59, Business

"I discovered Michael Moody when I bid on a package he generously offered at a non-profit fund raiser, I went to the personal training sessions offered and signed on to continue seeing Michael. He is very thoughtful of your needs and has an approach that is very holistic-incorporating your personal physical and life goals (which includes discussions on your nutrition and your life). Michael is affable, knowledgeable and professional in every sense and takes a different, more inclusive aspect to training and results-driven change (compared to other experiences with personal trainers). I am very pleased with noticeable results after two months of training..."
