Personal Trainer Chicago

David Bostik – Transform Personal Training, Lincoln Park, Chicago


On March 18, 2003 I weighed in at a whopping 346 pounds and decided once and for all it was time to take control of my life. I made the first step by joining a local gym. After wandering around the gym aimlessly, unsure of what to do for the first three months, I hired a personal trainer. Two years later, I had lost 150 pounds but I had regained my confidence and self-esteem. I didn’t set out to TRANSFORM my life, but that’s what happened.

The knowledge and experience I acquired through my personal training experience led me to a career in fitness and the opening of my personal training studio in Lincoln Park, Chicago.


Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of different people in smaller private gyms and in large corporate gyms and now at TRANSFORM. I have met my clients at different and, in some cases, difficult times in their lives. Every individual is unique and comes to me with their unique personal story and needs. I am proud that I have been able to help my clients re-engage in their own personal lives and reconnect with their own physicality because I have never forgotten my own story. I understand the intimidation and self-consciousness that embarking on a journey like this can evoke.

I created TRANSFORM because I believe my clients deserve a more private and personal training experience, away from cell phones, monotonous and rote workout routines, and the loud, bad music of the large gyms. After a private consultation with each client, together we can establish realistic goals for body conditioning and nutritional awareness. Then I personalize each and every workout session so that no two workouts are ever the same.

I am very passionate about what I do. I know from personal experience what it takes to stay motivated and on target with personal fitness training goals. I know that the program I create for you will not only allow you to reach your goals, but also I can help you lead a happier, healthier life. Working together, we can.
