Taylor

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

While on my weight loss journey I discovered a passion for training and teaching. Now I get to share my knowledge to help people reach their goals.

Tobias

Coach

I am from Argentina. I came to Chicago to get my degree in Exercise Science. Played soccer for North Central College. I have been lifting weight since I am 14 and always like coaching my friends and parents. I am very passionate about sports and fitness, and that includes helping others achieve their goals. My future goal is to have my own gym and be able to help people with their unique goals.

Favorite Exercise? Bench Press

Least favorite exercise? Split Squats

Favorite thing about H4? From the first time I went to H4, everyone seemed so nice and friendly. Since I started training clients at H4, I have met amazing people that are very outgoing and friendly. I love the atmosphere and culture at H4. The community is incredible and I couldn't have asked for a better place to work.

Jordan

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.

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.

Alex

Coach

I have been an athlete my whole life. Sports were a huge part of my life, but I always overlooked lifting weights. I played football at Benedictine University where I graduated with a degree in communications. Fitness quickly became a passion of mine and I had a drive to help motivate and inspire others which led to me getting my personal training certification from NASM in 2020.

Favorite Exercise: Box Jumps

Least Favorite Exercise: Walking Lunges

Favorite thing about H4? The culture at H4 is amazing, all the clients are super friendly and respectful. I couldn't have asked for a better gym to start my training career in.
