READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

SARA BRAHM

“There is a quote ‘Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it’.  I was looking for a trainer who would motivate and challenge me to meet my personal goals.  After interviewing several trainers, Mike provided an accurate assessment of what I was capable of and created a challenging yet rewarding regimen.  No two workouts are the same or ever “routine”.  He takes the time to explain the rhyme and reason of each interval while keeping in mind what is best for your body.  I would recommend him to anyone looking for results, a challenge and to expand their capabilities as long as it doesn’t impact my 3 sessions per week.”

JULIE NICHOLSON

“When I started training with Chellie, a little less than two years ago, I had just decided to start running. Since then I have run 5k’s, 10k’s, two half marathons, and a full marathon. Chellie is more than a trainer, she tailors each client’s program to their goals and unique body type. She has helped me develop the core strength, cardio vascular endurance, and mental toughness required to achieve my goals. All the while, Chellie encourages, motivates, and makes training fun. Chellie gives very personal attention to each client, checking in following training sessions, and modifying exercises and programs in case of fatigue or injury. I can honestly say that training with Chellie has changed my life! She has enabled me to participate more fully in my life, reach my goals, and deal much more effectively with stress.”

STEPH FABRY

“I have been training with Abdul for a couple years now and I don’t have one bad thing to say about him! His workouts are always really intense and it’s always up to me what I want/need to work on. (I am a soccer player on FC Wisconsin Eclipse). Never once have I felt like I didn’t get my money’s worth!! He really knows a lot about soccer and he has taught me various things about the game. He always pushes me to reach my maximum potential and is extremely encouraging and supportive. Overall, he’s an awesome trainer and he has really increased not only my knowledge on soccer but also has helped me improve various parts of my game as well.”

LIBBY AND JON

“Our family has been working with Mike for the past 10 years.  In addition to helping us create and reach personal fitness goals, Mike has been able to help with sciatic pain, back and knee issues. Mike applies his Exercise Physiology degree to individualize workouts that are incredibly challenging, but worth the time.  He can relate to people of all ages and makes exercise FUN!”

“Chellie DeGelleke and Pure Fitness have been an instrumental part of my life for the past 8 months. Not only have I experienced the physical change I was looking for, the mental part has been life changing. Because of their coaching I don’t put limits on my goals anymore, it’s not a matter of if I will achieve this or that goal it’s a matter of when, which is truly transformational not only when I work out but with my business as well. I am having my best business year ever and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that it has happened since I started working with Chellie. After I get done with a workout I feel so energized and positive that I take that with me to the office and have an amazing day!

What separates Chellie and Pure Fitness from the other fitness places is their approach and dedication to each client. They truly want to see you succeed in whatever goal you decide for yourself, whether that is losing weight and toning up or gaining weight and increasing muscle. You will do things that you’ve never done before and feel muscles that you didn’t even know you had. For me, with all of the different things they have me doing I have gained so much strength, that at first, I didn’t see possible and flexibility which has transferred to my life with my 3 young girls. I am now able to pick both of my older girls up over my shoulders and take them up a flight a stairs to bed without a problem. I am able to enjoy running around with them without getting tired and it has only enhanced the relationship I have with my family which is truly what life is all about.

We all are looking to be the best version of ourselves, you owe it to yourself to settle for nothing less. I promise you that if you train with Chellie and Pure Fitness that you will see your own physical and mental transformation as I have. You will become the version of yourself you were always looking for. Start today, you won’t regret it!”

KATE WIRTHLIN

“I’ve known Abdul since I’ve been about 5 years old. He has been the best trainer I’ve had and genuinely cares about the well-being of his players. He is very knowledgable but is constantly looking to learn more to better his players. He’s incredibly loyal and will do anything to make sure his client/player will succeed. I’ve been training with him all throughout my division 1 college career and he has always well prepared me. He’s truly a great coach and an even better person.”

DANIELLE AND MELANIE SOBELMAN

“My daughter and I have know Abdul for a little over 10 years, he has coached her in Micro soccer and soccer camps through Mequon and other soccer entities . Personal training started years ago basically to help her fitness and sharpen up on her skill with the ball but for my daughter she needed more mental counseling thing anything else and he was that person. I can’t put into words what he has done for her and how he has made her feel in most of her day to day activities I can hear her comment on what Abdul told her and how she is going to handle a situation. As she continues to work with him he is always there no matter how busy her schedule is or his own he never disappoints. Will love him, we love his character and all of the training tactics he has shown my daughter it has built her character and confidence. I consider my family incredibly lucky to know him and blessed that my daughter has had that opportunity as well. She will also be playing in college, which she hopes to continue her trainings with Abdul as well.” – Melanie

“Working with Abdul for the last 7 years has honestly been a blessing. He has taught me so much about myself mentally and physically. He encourages me to be never give up on myself, whether it’s on the soccer field or in the gym. A big part of my success was because of Abdul and I am honored to call him my friend, mentor and coach.” – Danielle

SHERYL DACZKA

“My daughter is a select soccer player and has been training with Abdul for over three years. Abdul is the most motivational, inspiring and hard working coach/trainer, that I have ever known. Not only does Abdul know his stuff, he knows how to engage people and make them want to reach their utmost potential. He keeps training intense, yet fun and always personalizes each and every session based on the needs of my daughter for the day she is training. I would highly recommend anyone, young or older, athlete or not, to work with Abdul for the pure fact that whatever you want to accomplish, Abdul will not only support you, he will make it happen!”
