CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

What Our Clients Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let the CityWide SuperSlow clients do the talking!

“I love the process, the speed of the workout and most of all the outstanding results. Jim Lavan takes training very seriously and I have been the beneficiary of his relentless adherence to strive for perfect form. I have found that the owners of CWSS go out of their way to provide a 5 Star experience for all of their clients. Finally, I can say with complete sincerity that at 61 years old I am in the best shape of my life.”


Jerry F.

“For the first time in years, I have some muscle definition and I am no longer left breathless. I can walk long distance with my dog without pains in my hips and knees. I am losing inches around my waistline. CityWide SuperSlow Training sessions have thus far been the best investment I’ve made to my health.”


V. Villagomez

“I have been working out once a week with a personal trainer at CWSS for over four years. SuperSlow workouts are highly efficient and effective; people often confuse quality with quantity but not at SuperSlow. I often recommend CityWide SuperSlow to others because I believe in their focused approach to building strength and have had measurable improvements. The workouts are tough but well worth the effort; the time savings alone make it worthwhile. And the people are the icing on the cake! It’s all about people and the team at CWSS is the best!”


Tom Wilson

“SuperSlow is the most efficient, effective workout available anywhere. 25 minutes per week, and I lost 30 lbs, 4 inches from my waist and I have continued to get in better shape … Denise and the entire team at CWSS are professional, terrific trainers…..Because of my success, my wife, father and mother have all started and all of them have had similar success. SuperSlow exercise at CityWide SuperSlow is simply the best exercise available anywhere in Chicagoland.”


Marshall A. Gibbs

“After suffering from serious chronic lower back problems for years, including hospitalization, I joined CWSS in an effort to strengthen my lower back and improve my overall fitness. Since beginning SuperSlow three years ago, I have avoided serious back pain and at the same time, improved my overall conditioning. I enthusiastically recommend SuperSlow to anyone who has suffered from chronic lower back pain and is searching for an alternative or supplement to medical solutions.”


Lang Neal

Mark's getting stronger even after 8 years
“For over 20 years I’ve done an assortment of different workouts. CWSS is simply the most efficient strength training workout I’ve ever done. I’m 43 years old and after 8 years of working out @ CWSS I am still showing strength improvement.”

— Mark Zahorik, V.P. Keeley Asset Management

Mary's Injury Recovery with CWSS
“In 2004, I fell hiking and fractured my left patella. Then in 2006, walking my two shar-pei’s, I fell again suffering a soft tissue injury to my left ankle. Friends had been involved with SuperSlow for years. They started to talk to me about strength training but I was always involved with aerobics training. For my birthday, my best friend gave me a gift certificate to try super slow; I have been there every week since then. I don’t know who was more excited when I meet my goal of 300 pounds on the leg press, my trainer or me. The changes I have seen to my body are remarkable. My golf game has also improved! … P.S. I haven’t fallen since I started CWSS.

According to Jim, you can't go wrong with any of our trainers

“I just want to send a note about what a great business you run. Yesterday when I arrived for my work out, Andrew asked me if Becky had notified me that she stayed home due to a sore throat. I said no I had not heard and Andrew said now you’re stuck with me. My initial reaction was “Damn” and that is nothing against anybody, but I think a client gets used to their trainer. I knew that Andrew had trained me five or six times over the years so it was no big deal. Like all of you trainers, Andrew was a complete professional. He offered hints and had his own little techniques all with a sense of humor but also serious at the same time. He was complimentary and made the work out an absolute joy. Usually on Monday, I do SuperSlow and then go to work at the store 10-6. Yesterday I also had to do a tasting at a local Forest Park restaurant from 6-10 pm. So it was a long day, but the workout set the tone for the day and it just whizzed by. I still felt so good this morning I just got back from a 4-mile walk in the windiest conditions that I have ever walked in. I sure do not want to lose Becky, but you have put together such a great staff that I think any of your clients would be more than happy with each of your trainers.”

Doctor's Recommendation: CWSS
“Today was the day. Six hundred on the leg press. It wasn’t planned. I did a minute and 30 seconds, not bad … I was excited. Thank you again for turning me on to this system. I was a bit skeptical, but now I have to restrain myself from acting like a zealot. I want to begin every conversation, with people I talk to all the time with, ‘Have I told you about my workout?’ … P. S. I turned 59 in January, and it is more than a little reassuring and invigorating that my weights are still going up …”

David Sager, M.D.

Jan's Bone Density improved with CWSS
“After a bone density test, my doctor had prescribed medicine to take weekly. At my follow-up exam, my numbers improved to the point that I am now off the medicine; the doctor said it is very much connected to SuperSlow.”

— Jan Wix, Vienna Beef

At 50, John has no back pain with CWSS
“I had turned 50, was in pretty good shape but had never “done” weights for fear I would hurt my back. One of the best things I have done for myself is to commit to SuperSlow twice a week. Supervised training has meant I never experienced back pain. The training is conducted in a manner to force the best out of yourself and is fun to do, my body has become toned and most important, and I feel good about myself.”
— John Wallis
Richard's Weight Loss with CWSS
“After facing the fact that my out-of-control weight was seriously affecting my health, I decided that I needed to reverse the trend. So in parallel with a new approach to food, I had my introductory training session at Citywide SuperSlow. I immediately knew that this would be a big component to achieving total fitness, combined with eating right. I began to train twice a week; that’s all my trainers would allow. My strength began to increase dramatically. I knew that SuperSlow would not, in and of itself, be the biggest determinant in weight loss. I strongly believed, however, that high-intensity strength training would, in addition to building infrastructure strength, also burn more calories than blubber. The precipitating factor in starting this change was the fact that I could no longer fit in my 42 waist size pants and I could not find any size 44/30 pants. Within 120 days, I was in size 38’s and my repetitions and weights on all machines had increased dramatically, including 780 pounds on my leg press (I probably started in the low 500’s). As of today, my size 38’s are loose and I plan on hitting size 34 in the next 120 days. With SuperSlow and my healthy diet, I have no doubt I will achieve that goal.”

Chris feels better at 55 than 35 with CWSS
“As a professional sales trainer and speaker, I appreciate this professional approach to exercise. All of us have the capacity to get stronger and healthier. CWSS and my trainer, Alexa, have unleashed that capacity. At 55, I feel better than I did at 35, and I know I’m stronger than I was in college.”
Chris Lytle, Apex Performance Systems & Author of The Accidental Salesperson
