My name is Irmel. I am 28 years old from the north side of Chicago near O'hare. I am a Full-time Police Officer going on 6 years, and part-time personal trainer for over 10 years. I can never stop training clients, its been a passion for very long time since the age of 19 when I got my first job at gym. I use to weight 292lbs when I was into being "big and strong." Knowing I was going into the Police Academy, I knew I had to change my ways and get fit. I decided to change everything and lost 101 lbs in 10 months. Several of my clients have great success stories in changing their lives and losing 30-100lbs. I hope you are ready to make and change and we can do it toghter.
My specialty is Weight-loss, strength, endurance, fitness competition and overall guiding you to a healthier life-style. I believe this has to be a life-style in order to have success.
I train at several gyms. I can also come to you within a reasonable traveling distance.

I had my first session with Irmel recently and he was amazing. Irmel is extremely knowledgeable with fitness and nutrition. He's early by 10 or 15 minutes and very hands on. He really cares about your goals. Irmel treats you like a friend and not just a client. He is always accessible and makes time to talk even when working with the police. I highly recommend anyone looking to start changing their life.
Irmel was the perfect personal trainer when I needed to get the most work out in such a short amount of time! I had 40 days to shape up quick (for a physical fitness test), and he got me there! Rain or shine, sleep or no sleep, he showed up and got me sweating! I hated but loved it! He pushed me further than what I mentally thought I could do! I appreciated it! Thanks Irmel!
