About Us

Transforming Lives and Helping Clients Reach Their Goals

My name is Zak Rivera, and I am the founder of Focused Results Studio, a personalized, one-on-one training studio that has been helping clients reach their health and fitness goals since 2012. Focused Results is pleased to work with clients throughout the Chicago suburbs, but we primarily serve Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, and Highland Park, Illinois. We are excited that our new online fitness programs allow us to bring our fitness expertise to the marketplace.  

To know me is to know that my great passion is helping others to achieve their fitness goals. The term “functional fitness” is very important to me.

What do I mean by that term? It means we work together to improve your diet, strength, toning, and general well-being. Functional fitness is not about how much weight someone can lift. It's about being able to walk better, move more fluidly, perform daily activities more easily, and improve all fitness aspects of our everyday lives. I want to help people feel better about themselves in all things they do.

As with most of my clients, many years ago I went on a personal wellness journey. In transforming my own life and becoming an American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) certified trainer, I came to understand that fitness is a choice and a lifestyle. Long and non-productive workouts are not the best way to maintain health and fitness. I believe flexibility, strength, and safe weight loss are the key factors to overall health and wellness.



The Focused Results Philosophy

The philosophy behind Focused Results can be summarized in just one brief sentence: Health isn’t an Option...it’s a Lifestyle. Good health isn’t a luxury, but a necessity that we should all strive to reach. With the proper encouragement, focused personalized training, and good choices and nutrition, anyone - regardless of age or current state of fitness - can attain their goals and become more fit and healthy.

At Focused Results, every client is respected as a unique individual. No two people are ever trained quite alike; no client is ever made to feel intimidated or judged. We welcome prospective clients to schedule an appointment to visit the studio without any pressure or obligation.
