Health Isn’t an Option - It’s a Lifestyle.
All training options are offered in studio, outside, or virtually.
Hi! I’m so glad you’re here. My name is Zak Rivera and I’m the owner and founder of Focused Results, a family-owned and operated boutique personal training studio in Lake Bluff, Illinois, established in 2012. I know taking the decision to improve your health and wellness can be scary or intimidating.
I’ve worked with all experience levels and age groups, including senior citizens focusing on improving bone density, balance, and posture. I treat each person as an individual, their goals and objectives the foundation of my training. I’ve worked as a sports performance coach working on speed, agility, and explosiveness. I also served as the strength and conditioning coach/hitting coach for Harper College and the University of Wisconsin - Parkside baseball teams. While playing for the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee baseball team, I earned a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and a master’s degree in Business Administration. I have more than 15 years in the training industry and am a master-level trainer and recognized by the American College of Sports Medicine as a Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, Precision Nutrition Coach Level | 1, and Functional Range and Conditioning Specialist (FRC).
Believe it or not, I’ve been in your shoes. My journey to health and wellness began with self discovery as an unhealthy teenager. It evolved as I became a D1 collegiate athlete, then as a young professional, and now as a husband, father, and cancer survivor. Your body and its needs are constantly changing, which is why individualized and functional fitness is the best option for living your best life. I built a community at Focused Results where everyone is welcome - always.
"I have been a client of FR for over four years and have been exceptionally happy with my experience and results. Their level of professionalism, knowledge and commitment to their clients is second to none. In the time I have been a client there, I have increased strength, balance, and flexibility. I have lost over twenty pounds. I sleep better, eat healthier, have more energy, and feel more confident in every aspect of my life. It has been a life changing experience and I could not have achieved all of that without their help, support, and encouragement. I primarily work with Andrew. He is continually looking for ways to help me improve my fitness and takes special care to focus on areas of concern. It has been a pleasure to work with someone so dedicated to helping others be the best version of themselves. Andrew makes my sessions fun and challenging and I always look forward to working with him. I am sure you will find the other trainers at FR to be as exceptional as Andrew. You will enjoy being part of the community at Focused Results where the trainers, as well as the other clients, are rooting for your success. It is a relaxed, encouraging and friendly atmosphere. "
