Testimonials

Has the ability to motivate me to perform at my potential…

“Giulia is very knowledgeable, always very personable and professional, and has the ability to motivate me to perform at my potential. In addition, she always modifies my workout routines to compensate for any ongoing or occasional physical limitations. Giulia Rocks!!!”
-M.F.H., Oak Park, IL

My energy level has increased, and I've even lost some inches in my waist…

“As I near retirement age, I began working with Giulia last March at the suggestion of my wife. I had considered myself to be in relatively good shape for someone my age, had been walking fairly regularly for years, and had no idea that Giulia's very reasonable strength training and conditioning exercises would have so many positive results. I now feel much better overall, my energy level has increased, and I've even lost some inches in my waist.”

Giulia treats me as an individual. She truly is a doctor who cares for the whole person…

“Working with Giulia is about lifestyle and quality of life. The aging process and a hectic lifestyle leave room for little else. Giulia treats me as an individual, she truly is a doctor who cares for the whole person. In 18 weeks the results are all encompassing: improved sleep, balance, and concentration, I've even found muscles I thought were long gone and am losing about a pound per week. She has provided me with nutritional counseling and continues to monitor my progress regularly. Working with Giulia for personal training is one of the best decisions I've made!”
-D.C., Oak Park, IL

Giulia Isetti is amazing and truly uniquely qualified to be a personal trainer.

“Giulia Isetti is amazing and truly uniquely qualified to be a personal trainer. Her routines are informed by her total mastery of muscle mechanics, but her training goes way beyond muscle building. Giulia's incredibly deep understanding of nutrition and human bio-chemistry (she's got a PhD!!) was critical to my seeing amazing results in the areas of muscle tone, strength and endurance. I'm a 50 year-old lawyer trying to stay in physical shape to be a water-skier and professional drummer. When working regularly with Giulia, I feel as though (and I am often told :-)) I have the body of a 30 year-old. I'm absolutely serious.”
-Steve, Oak Park, IL

I found Giulia's program to be much more beneficial to the successful start of my season.

“I was taking another training session at the same time I was taking Giulia's training class, so it gave me an opportunity to really compare and contrast different methods. The other training is conducted locally by a former pro cyclist and uses the Computrainer system to format its core program. Minute for minute, and dollar per increment of cycling strength gain, I found Giulia's program to be much more beneficial to the successful start of my season. I came out of the gate cycling stronger and ready to race.”

You will never get bored.

“Giulia is a great coach because she cares about you and is knowledgeable about body mechanics, nutrition and she has a tool box of exercises to keep you in shape. You will never get bored. Her educated blend of exercise and nutrition makes for maximum improvement. If you are recovering from an injury or trying to maximize your performance in a sport, she is the one that will get you there.”
-G.M., Personal Training Client

In golf, I am now getting an additional 10 yards with my driver.

“Personally, when I started training with Giulia, I had a strained rotator cup. The pain made it hard for me to sleep at night. Within a month I forgot about the pain and I was easily doing 3 sets of 15 men's push ups every session. In golf, I am now getting an additional 10 yards with my driver.”

She’s made me a better cyclist…

“Giulia’s approach to coaching is perfect for me, she provides a very specific and scientifically-designed training calendar, but at the same time is able to give me lots of personal advice to supplement the workout schedule. Her approach is rigorous but also adaptable to my busy work and family life. She’s made me a better cyclist and I enthusiastically endorse her coaching services.”
-Robert, Cyclist

She's helped get me back out on the streets running pain free!

“I started working with Giulia a year ago and I've had such a positive experience. When I began working with Giulia it was after experiencing a running injury to my leg and I've continued working with her because of the awesome results. I feel positive every time that I work out with her that I am doing exercises that will help me become a stronger, healthier individual. Plus, I'm happy to say she's helped get me back out on the streets running pain free!”
-Cathy, Runner and Personal Training Client

… balance with the real world challenges we all face

“I would best describe Giulia’s approach as energetic, motivational and results driven with the bonus of making it balance with the real world challenges we all face.”
-Peter, Cyclist and Strength Conditioning Client

She really understands the physiology and the psychology of becoming fitter and faster…

“In my experience, trainers are a bit like voodoo doctors. Do exactly this and exactly that and I'll put a spell on you to make you fitter. Not Giulia though. She really understands the physiology and the psychology of becoming fitter and faster. It's hard work but you work with her not for her, with regular feedback and consistent attention throughout. Excellent experience all around. Highly recommended.”
-Cyclist

Giulia brings a scientist’s rigor … a mentor’s motivation and an infectious enthusiasm…

“Giulia has been a partner in our entire family’s fitness and nutrition needs for over two years. In this time she has counseled our daughters on their nutritional needs as student athletes, and my wife and I worked with Giulia for the development of personalized, goal-oriented classes and routines suited to each of our interests. For the last two winters I developed a much stronger base for the cycling season, improved form on the bike and had a great time learning and working out with other cyclists. Giulia brings a scientist’s rigor and understanding, a coach and mentor’s motivation and an infectious enthusiasm for life to all she does with her clients and friends. Bravissimo!”
-J. Connell

Giulia has transformed our whole family.

“Giulia has transformed our whole family. She is very smart and flexible in her approach and has been able to meet everyone in our family from our 10 year old to our 55 year old bike racer where they are and move them to a better physical place. She is very systematic and can keep you completely engaged. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.”
-A happy client

One of the best calls I've made!

“Giulia is an outstanding trainer. She has guided and encouraged me to reach my goals through workouts and nutritional counseling. Her knowledge of how our body and our mind responds to exercise has an all over impact on quality of life. Not only does she take my workouts seriously but she does so with humor and a motivational spirit. Calling Giulia for my first appointment a year ago was one of the best calls I've made!”
-Dana C.

She really understands the theory, science and mechanics of physical fitness.

“I was skeptical when I started. I’ve used other trainers who simply walk from exercise to exercise counting my reps while adding no value to what I’m doing. G has been great – she customized the workouts to my needs, she works on my form, she has coached me through three injuries, and she has helped me understand what each part of my workout is trying to achieve. She really understands the theory, science and mechanics of physical fitness.”
-A.C. from Oak Park

I have trimmed off 50 lbs in the past year…

“I feel like I have my life back since I have been working with Coach G. I have trimmed off 50 lbs in the past year. I am so much stronger than I have ever been. I am doing things I would have never thought possible before. Coach G also gave me a great nutrition plan that I still follow today. It is a plan I can live with long term. I am still working on losing more and getting stronger. G has been so motivating for me. Coach G is tremendously knowledgeable in all areas of exercise and nutrition. Coach G's plan for me was personalized and extremely effective. G changes it up frequently and pushes you to the next level. I have never had a boring work out. She is everything you would want in a coach. I have even brought my children to workout with her as well.”
-A happy client

The laughs that we share during class are an added benefit!

“I've been working out at Body by G for 2 years now. I enjoy the Saturday classes and value the personal training that I receive from Giulia once a week. There was a time when I didn't think I could do it. Now I am stronger, more toned and definitely less stressed. The laughs that we share during class are an added benefit!”
-Beth

She is truly dedicated to my success…

“Giulia is an outstanding trainer who showed me time and again that she is truly dedicated to my success. Not only is she fun to work with, but she knows how to push me beyond my limits with a masterful blend of firm yet gentle encouragement. Her academic background, combined with her own personal experiences, makes her a credible source of nutrition and exercise advice, and I've really valued this part of our work together.”
-A happy client

We are capable of doing MUCH more than we think…

“Giulia trained me for my first marathon a couple of years ago. She went above and beyond as a trainer and I left the experience with invaluable lessons that have served me well, not only in athletics, but in my everyday life. Proper training, the importance of nutrition, the need for rest (!) and most importantly, we are capable of doing MUCH more than we think. For these Giulia, I thank you!”
-BK

In the first 71 years of my life, I have managed to avoid a personal trainer…

“In all honesty, I had to be dragged 'kicking and screaming' to Giulia. In the first 71 years of my life, I have managed to avoid a personal trainer. My wife talked me into it. I went to Giulia to prepare for my first century bike ride (one of those bucket list things) and got so much more. I totally changed my diet and my thinking about nutrition, lost 35 lbs, got physically stronger than I have been in years…and did the century with ease. Seldom in life do we experience such unexpected personal transformations.”
-Joe, Oak Park

"G" brings a great mix of knowledge, intensity, respect and humor to her coaching…

“I have been cycling with Giulia at Body by G for over two years and recently I became a personal client of hers, working on core strength conditioning. Both experiences have been fantastic. "G" brings a great mix of knowledge, intensity, respect and humor to her coaching and I look forward to my sessions and the knowledge that for the first time in my life I am getting stronger and healthier and I am having a great time doing it.”
