Results Aren’t Guaranteed, They are Earned

HARD WORK. The two most important words when it comes to getting results. At USI we believe in the Kaizen principle… constant and never-ending improvement.
We select the exercises that give you “the biggest bang for your buck” and utilize the right training methods that are aligned with your goals.  Chris Grayson, Chicago personal trainer, is backed by 15 years of real world results and ready to help you.

Meet the Coach

Ever since the age of 14 when I was first introduced to weight lifting I’ve had a strong love for it.
After high school I enlisted in Marine Corps and that love grew even more. As soon as I got out of the Marines in 1998 I got a job at a gym I was working out at to pursue personal training. I knew I loved training but didn’t really know it would become an obsession and my long time career. Since 1999 I’ve had up to four personal training certificates and I can say that most weren’t worth the paper they were printed on. What makes someone good at this is years of countless hours studying and applying what they’ve learned. Over my 15 years in this industry I’ve spent thousands of dollars on seminars, books, internships, and consultations with some of the best in the industry in order to become the best I could in the field that I love.

But enough about me. What matters is you, so you should be asking yourself “what’s in it for me”?
