About Me

After doing construction for 5 years I had a change of heart and switched career paths. I walked into the 3 of the biggest gym locations in the Naperville area in 2008 and worked at the first one that called me in for an interview. I got nationally certified through NESTA, CPR/Blood Pathogen Certified, Stretch Certified, Kickbox Certified, and Power Plate Certified shortly after. Within 3 months I'd excelled and became one of the top leading trainers at that facility. My success definitely sprung from my love of training.

Exactly one year after I started working at a gym, I opened my own personal training business, Gio's Balanced Fitness. I wanted a unique name that embodied who I was so Gio's came from my middle name Giovanni. A year and a half later and expanded from my home training space, and rented space from a training facility to expand my training business. Utilizing that experience I decided it would be best if I branched out on my own and open up my own commercial personal training studio.

Partnering up with a close friend and business mentor I managed to allocate funds to open up Gio's Balanced Fitness, LLC. It's never easy to start up your own business but with the right people in your corner I just knew the timing was right. Now I've opened up my own commercial location only a few years after entering in this field and I'm loving every minute of it. It's definitely the success and joy in my clients that makes it all worth while.

You never know what life has in store for you, but luckily I had friends and family supporting my every decision along the way. It wasn't easy, I had many ups and down in my personal & work life, but I managed to push through because it was up to me.

Pierre motivates my whole person mentally, emotionally and physically. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results, results I have already begun to see. :) I feel much stronger today and my balance and flexibility has improved immensely and I have great new muscles. (so cool!)

The first day I met with Pierre Avila he was very approachable and I knew he would be a great trainer! Pierre is passionate and well educated about fitness and nutrition. He is a perfect combination of tough and warm. He places a huge value on correct form which I need and makes each work out session challenging, creative and fun with a few laughs here and there.
