See what some of our clients have said about Kru Strength + Fitness.

What I also think is great about Josha is her commitment to her favorite sport, soccer. She works with the Chicago soccer community giving back with her talent and knowledge and I applaud her for that. Josha is the best trainer. I know she will bring all of her knowledge plus her even temperament and openness to loads of new clients. And her great sense of humor and compassion.

I am enjoying belonging to Kru so much… just ask my friends, since I talk about it all the time. Your philosophy & approach not only keeps me motivated but is actually helping me already see a difference in my strength & body!

Christine O.Fitness Training

I have been working out with Josha for the past few years, and have never had a better work out or more fun while working out than when they have trained me. Now, don’t get me wrong it isn’t all fun, and many times it’s extremely hard but they are always supportive and entertaining throughout the entire workout. They are extremely knowledgeable about the not only the fitness aspect of training but also provide great nutritional and lifestyle guidelines.

Josha is a really good trainer. Very educated, motivating, patient, and easy to communicate with. Very unintimidating, shes just totally normal and doesn’t make you feel dumb. I have worked with her for a few years now and before my recent back injury. Since the injury Josha turned into more like my physical therapist. She has researched and done homework to come up with the proper movements for me to help speed healing and strengthen other areas to alleviate pain in my lower back. I cant say enough! Shes great!

Jane A.Strength Training

I have worked out with Josha for over ten years. Not only are Kru workouts always challenging, they are constantly mixing them up making it fun and wanting to come back for more. They push you to your limits and I always leave the gym feeling that I had a great workout.

Bridgette Z.Strength Training

I am so grateful to have found Kru… I was at a point where I really needed to change up the running/yoga routine – and this is the perfect solution. I feel so much stronger and owe it all to Kru. I am sure there are many that feel the same way. What a great community you’ve built. I will continue to tell all my friends.

Melissa M.Fitness Training

Working out with the coaches at Kru has been a great experience. They have taught me how to lift weights properly and eat the right foods in order to lose/maintain a healthy weight. I never thought that working out could be so much fun! The coaches are always very positive and they want you to succeed in obtaining your goals.

Tara B.Strength Training

I absolutely loved working out at Kru, and it’s one of the things I will miss the most about living in Andersonville. I will feel very lucky to find something even a tiny bit similar.  I also wanted to thank you in particular for the training camp. I have kept off all the weight I lost during the camp, plus a few additional pounds that I lost after.  The diet totally changed how my husband and I eat and cook at home. He lost over thirty pounds after that. So the boot camp you designed was quite literally life-changing, not just for me but also for my husband. Thank you so much for that.”

Sarah O.

Working out with Josha and the Kru has been amazing. I’ve dropped 6% body fat and feel stronger and healthier than ever. Best of all, the workouts are always different and interesting so I find myself looking forward to working out rather than dreading it! I have recommended KRU to all my friends!

Kim M.Strength Training

I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, what my friends would describe as “athletic”. But training with both Josha and Kathy for the past 5 years has transformed not only my body, but provided me with a healthier way of living. Their knowledge and expertise comprise very unique styles that are motivational and FUN! Thanks for all you’ve done for me!

Lisa H.Strength Training

Josha gets it. She just gets it. She’s ultra-supportive and really fun to work out with, and she has helped me push through to reach my goals. I totally trust her. She can take you where you want — and need — to go!

Cara C.Strength Training

I’ve been exercising and playing basketball regularly for over 15 years. I have 3 other gym memberships to prove it. After 2 months at KRU – I can actually see muscles I never even knew I had.

Bill W.Personal Training

Thanks for the hours of single leg burbees and RDLs! Catch Athena, Sargentina, myself and the rest of the Windy City Rollers All-Stars as we compete in Atlanta this weekend at the 2012 WFTDA Championships roller derby tournament. We appreciate all you do to keep our bodies in top form!

Varla VendettaWindy City Rollers

Kru provides a supportive environment with a great team of personal trainers and fun fitness classes. I use to hate working out and dread the thought of stepping into a gym, but Kru has turned my thinking around. Thanks Kru for helping me to love exercise!

Thavary K.Fitness Training

Being a former college athlete I was skeptical that I would be able to find a trainer that would push my athletic ability and challenge me. My training experience with Josha has exceeded my expectations. She is great at motivating me and pushing me every session. After every workout with Josha, I feel stronger, leaner and more energized. She also takes the time to listen to my concerns and provides advice on nutrition and lifestyle changes that help me progress in training.
