Client Testimonials

I’d started a full re-discovery of self in 2018, I was doing acupuncture, counseling, physical therapy, nutrition sessions, strength training and cardio… so needless to say when I met Gus in August I was both desperate and frustrated with the entire process. I had a 8 pound net loss to show for all my efforts. 

My weight-loss and fitness goals seemed not only distant, but insurmountable. Fast forward to New Year 2019, I’m down 50 pounds and my life is on a completely different trajectory. Gus was integral in me hitting this marker; he was knowledgeable, vested in my success, kind, flexible, and an accountability partner … just ‘good people’ as we say in Chicago. 

From a person who has struggled with weight my entire life, don’t give up there’s a solution out there for you. Keep fighting and hopefully someone from the Leblon Fitness crew can help you get there.

Gustavo has been my Personal Trainer for 12 years. I cannot compliment enough or give him a greater review. Gustavo is an extremely exceptional and competent personal trainer. Not only is he certified as a personal trainer, he is also certified as a physical therapist.

I have been a member of a few “high-end status” gyms and have retained the services of the club’s personal trainers. Each personal trainer was trained to give general instructions geared to the general public, not to the individual.

Gustavo gears his training to each person, concentrating on their specific goals, as well as sessions that are enjoyable to them. Gustavo makes sure that the exercises that he recommends to you work for you. He makes sure that your workouts are effective and enjoyable.

Gustavo is highly effective professional trainer. He has many years of education and experience.

Gustavo is kind, thoughtful, intelligent, professional and extremely reliable. Not only Gustavo is my personal trainer, he is my friend. He is compassionate and truly cares about his clients.

I highly recommend Gustavo. His boutique Leblon Fitness Club, is not a gym. Leblon ha state-of-the art equipment and a warm and friendly atmosphere, not like your typical “sterile” gym. When you enter the club, you feel like no other gym.

Marian Benson

Executive Secretary

I am thrilled to be Gustavo’s client. He is both a most professional and most personable trainer. Gustavo himself is an epitome of fitness and a healthy life style. His genuine interest in helping his clients achieve their fitness goals and his expertise are outstanding, while his warmth and positive attitude emanate from an authentic and highly accomplished person whose mere presence brings joy. If you want to train with the finest personal trainer in Chicago, meet Gustavo and you will find this star in the arena of personal training.

Jelena Bankovic

Ph. D. Professor of English

I have been Gustavo’s client for little over 3 years and from day one I have been impressed with his experience, professionalism and ability to connect on a personal level. Gustavo is a great motivator with abundance of knowledge in strength training, injury prevention, nutrition and is always willing to go an extra mile to challenge me and help me reach the next level of fitness. I have been particularly impressed with diversity of his workouts and always look forward to the next session and testing his creativity. What else can I say about this great man and great person? Today my wife and two boys are also Gustavo’s client and are jointly enjoying every workout and witnessing the change in our health and fitness. Gustavo has been a game changer for us and we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to get healthier, happier, stronger and more confident.
