Jordan Reyes

Coach

I have my degree in Exercise Science from North Central College (2014-2016). Fitness has truly been a passion of mine, however exercise has not always been a part of my lifestyle. I played basketball all throughout high-school, but never really lifted weights due to being intimated from the gym setting. So, H4 really implements the kind of environment I always saw myself being a part of and working for: making sure every client is welcomed, comfortable, and cared for.

What is your favorite exercise? Pull-Ups

Least fav? Walking lunges

Favorite thing about H4? Easy: the clients. It takes me about an hour to get to H4, but that commute is a lot easier since I always look forward to working with every single client. The H4 Community is truly something special that cannot be replicated. I feel so fortunate to be part of such a great group.

Coach

I'm a 27 year old fitness fanatic who enjoys sports, self-improvement, reading and traveling. My wife and I welcomed the birth of our son, Leviticus Dash, on January 13th, 2017 and he has been our guiding light ever since. I've been at H4 since November 2016 and have had an absolute blast upon being brought on. Greatly looking forward to what the future has in store!

Favorite exercise? Agility Ladders

Least favorite? Pull Ups

Favorite thing about H4? I don't think I'm alone in saying the best thing about the H4 experience is the community! Being an introvert, I wasn't sure how my personality would resonate with both participants and fellow staff but I have to admit, every time I walk through the doors, there is a strong sense of welcome and comfortability in the H4 air. I can be myself and there's no judgment whatsoever each and every time. The sense of belonging and confidence is something I'm not sure I've really felt since my athletic days and it just feels incredible to be a part of.

Taylor Block

Manager & Coach

I grew up in Geneva, IL, and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Advertising (Roll Tide!). I discovered fitness is a true passion of mine, which fueled me to change career paths and become a personal trainer. I came to H4 in the spring of 2017 as a client. I instantly loved the challenge, as well as the support the coaches and other clients brought forward. I've been hooked ever since!

Favorite Exercise? Burpees

Least Favorite? Planks

Favorite thing about H4? The sense of belonging within the H4 Community. Seeing clients reach their goals is pretty awesome too.

Gabe

Coach

Throughout high school I played some sports like boxing and tennis, but nothing really stuck; I tried to be healthier but lacked commitment. After high school, I started college with the intention of studying Criminal Justice. At the time I was pretty out of shape, and I decided to take up some weight training to get fit (to chase down the bad guys of course). Soon after, I fell in love with fitness. I decided to switch my career track to a fitness professional, and got certified a few years later. I loved that I could challenge myself and become a better me in the process!

My personal philosophy is that fitness is a catalyst for other improvements in one's life; a stronger body will create a stronger mind, and in turn will allow you to lead a great life where any obstacle only becomes a chance to improve.

Favorite Exercise: That's a tough one, it changes all the time! Right now I'd say I really love hill sprints.

Least Favorite Exercise: Calf raises (you can tell I don't like them, if my tiny calves are any clue).

What do I love about H4? The other coaches have said it best: the sense of community. I've been to other gyms - and while I've learned much and met great people - H4 has something special, and you can see it as soon as you walk in.
