TRAINER BOB

Personal Trainer Since 2008

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Bob Kaczmarczyk

ACE & NASM Certified Personal Trainer

Most training clients want to change something in their lives for the better. I understand that same need for change because I’ve experienced it. My story of health & fitness is a long one, but I felt it was important to share a piece of my background.

As a kid growing up, my personality and stature leaned toward the ‘geeky’ side. I never considered being geeky to be a negative trait, but to the casual observer I was a short, scrawny, frail kid with seriously thick eyeglasses. (I even had black tape on the bridge of my glasses holding the frames together.) I loved the simple, innocent fun of life and always tried to keep an outwardly positive attitude, but behind that I was all too often scared & intimidated by everyone & everything.

As I got older, my lack of confidence lead to being picked on by the guys and ignored by the girls. High school was terrible and my grades plummeted. I felt trapped. I decided to try and take matters into my own hands and started to lift weights. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and no one to guide me, but I thought if I put on some muscle I’d at least be at the receiving end of a few less jokes and maybe by some stroke of luck actually get a date.

Years went by with less than spectacular results, but I stayed consistent with exercise. Lifting weights didn’t mold me into the superhero I had pictured in my mind, but it was a good way to let off some steam and clear my head. My efforts built up a little confidence by the time I graduated college. It was time to enter the workforce, face the world, and create a life for myself.

I was lucky to have an amazing family. My childhood pals became life-long friendss. (Girls began noticing me!!!) I settled in with a career, bought a condo, got a social life, and eventually met the girl of my dreams. Seemed like things would be right out of the textbook from here on out. Finally time to kick back, shift into auto-pilot, and soak up what the universe had to offer. The human nature of that complacency combined with the insecurities of my past (that I thought I had grown beyond) led me on a dangerous path.

I worked as an engineer in the fast paced, corporate environment of the big city. Very exciting for a kid right out of college – generous salary, high end projects – I was on my way to the big leagues. Nearly a decade passed. Throughout that time, I always had this feeling that something wasn’t right, but I kept it hidden to myself, and by default, everyone else. I needed a shock to my system, and that happened when I was donating blood one evening after work on a winter night in 2007. They took my blood pressure reading and it was 152/100. How could that be possible? I’m young, I work out a few times a week, I eat pretty healthy, and I take care of myself. There is no way I have high blood pressure. Then I looked back at the past decade of my life. I commuted 2-3 hours a day fighting traffic, constant train delays – even the weather made it worse. Work was piled on my desk the moment I walked in – messages, emails, meetings – all needing immediate attention to prevent the engineering apocalypse. Lunch breaks disappeared. Even a few minutes having a friendly conversation with a coworker was impossible if I wanted to even consider being able to catch a decent train home. Every deadline I met was preceded by three more I had to finish at the same time. Projects were no longer about doing a good job; it was all about the bottom line, climbing the corporate ladder, covering up mistakes, shifting the blame, and moving on to the next one before anyone knew what happened.

My high blood pressure was only a small piece of what was happening with my health. My body ached from sitting 10 hours a day. My stomach was tied in knots with such consistency that I couldn’t eat without upsetting it. I couldn’t fall asleep at night anymore. If I did manage to doze off, I’d be wide awake a few hours later. Because of this I could barely stay awake at work. I was exhausted to the point that trying to do anything enjoyable on the weekend became a chore. I honestly didn’t have fun doing anything I used to enjoy because all I thought about was how stressed I was. I just wanted to sleep. Sad thing was, I never told anyone about any of this. I just accepted all of this as normal human behavior – it’s admirable to work hard, right? I lied to myself that the awful physical & mental side effects are just supposed to be part of the deal. My life and the world around me were literally disappearing while being chained to the desk chair in an office coffin.

Depression has a history in my family. I was drowning and ignored all the symptoms. I still can’t believe I was oblivious for so long, but that blood pressure reading finally opened my eyes. Depression has wormed its way through my life. The solution was not with doctors and medications. It was from within myself. It was time to make a change, but my mind spun. What would I do? How could I make a living? Leave a high paying job in a bad economy where unemployment was at near record highs? That’s insane. Funny thing is, wanting to change wasn’t insanity. Sitting there and accepting what I was going through for so long was the truly crazy part.

After opening up to my girlfriend (now my wife) for the first time, our conversations turned to my workouts. She said that I seemed to always enjoy them, why not turn a hobby into a profession? The solution was right in front of me and I never even saw it. Her comment was the spark that ignited the fire. With realizing this, I also thought of something else. I’ve seen so many afflictions with family & friends – heart disease, cancer, depression, Alzheimer’s, stroke, the sad list goes on – I discovered it didn’t have to be like that. All these health conditions are things that can be prevented by being more active, eating better, and living a positive lifestyle. Everything I read proved it time and time again. My family & friends with those afflictions would still be around today if they had someone in their lives that helped them live healthier. I could not only improve my life, but I could even be the person to help change someone else’s.

I decided to become a personal trainer. I opened up to my immediate family & close friends about what I was going through the last ten years and what I was going to do about it. I researched what I needed to do to begin my career as a trainer, talked to those who could help, began to look at places I might work, and spent my last year in engineering studying and saving up as much money as I could to prepare for whatever happened.

The plunge was taken and I said goodbye to my engineering career on Thanksgiving week of 2008, and took the test for my first personal training certification that December. (My wife & I watched the movie Dodgeball the night before the test to mentally prepare me. Best study material ever.) I passed the test and hit the job search full throttle. After a few months of searching I was lucky enough to get my first training position at a chain mega-gym. It was a really tough, slow start, and I honestly questioned whether I had what it takes to be a trainer. My very first client on my very first day requested to work with another trainer after working with me. That moment was not encouraging the way I wanted it to be, but it was what I needed in order to push myself. I had no choice. I needed to succeed. I couldn’t go back to my old lifestyle.

I was able to gain some experience and education over the next year. Unfortunately, the business oriented aspect of the gym ended up being too much about profit and not enough about the client’s health. For the most part, people are a commodity to the big gyms. It was all too much like the office life of the engineering world. Time to take what I’ve learned and move on.

In 2015, my wife and I opened up our own private personal training studio, Heavy Metal Fitness. We get to help, encourage, and motivate clients on our terms – always emphasizing the positive, life-changing benefits of exercise. It’s refreshing to be able to put people first and focus on changing lives for the better.

My journey continues to this day and has expanded in directions I never dreamed possible. Over the past several years I have solidified my skills, knowledge, and talents. I can confidently assess a client’s needs and help them successfully achieve their health & fitness goals. The credentials and testimonials I have on our website expand even more on this.

There are many more lessons for me to learn in the future, but what I take from my story thus far is the following: I have the constant support of a loving family, the positive encouragement from close friends, the mutual respect of gifted colleagues, and the daily inspiration from incredible clients. All of you who I just mentioned do this for me in ways you probably don’t even realize. I cannot thank you all enough – what I can do though, is strive to make myself, those around me, and the world we live in better each day. To keep things simple. To keep things humble. To appreciate more and require less. I feel it’s the only way to show my respect to those who have come before me who truly earned their place in the world. People with much more interesting, heartbreaking, and inspiring tales than mine.

The transformation of that scared little boy to the superhero he always had hidden in his heart is still a long work in progress, but I push forward every day with every session. Thanks for stopping here for a visit and listening.

Thanks for considering me as your personal trainer.

TESTIMONIALS

Rachel N.

I’ve always wanted to get in shape. When my sister in law asked me to go with her I was all in. After our first 15 minute trial we were sore for 2 weeks and we were hooked. In just 2 weeks we started seeing muscle definition we didn’t have before. It’s been 2 years now with a wedding and a baby and Heavy Metal has gotten me through all of it. I now know what to do at a gym in my own time without hopping from machine to machine. I’m not where I want to be but I know I’ll get there. I can’t thank Bob enough because I set goals for my wedding and achieved them. I was proud of my arms in my wedding dress which was a big deal to me. Bob also got me through my pregnancy all the way to 39 weeks. There were mornings I didn’t want to go but I got up, got dressed and went anyways. It ended up turning my mood around from 36-39 weeks after my workouts. I was able to have my daughter naturally within 3 and a half hours of being induced. My body did exactly what it was supposed to. I also didn’t gain ANY baby weight which I’m also proud of all thanks to Bob and heavy metal fitness. Next step, GET MY CORE BACK!! 💙🤘💪heavy metal has changed my life forever.

Laura M.

Trainer Bob is exactly what you are looking for in a personal trainer. He’s fun, professional, on time, and super knowledgeable. His customer service and follow up is great. I can’t recommend him enough. 🤘

Pam B.

Thank YOU! For taking my daughter on and challenging her to be the best of herself each time she has a session. It’s given her such confidence and was the right thing through her injuries and bad times. Your studio is phenomenal. It’s not just the training; it’s you and Tracy and what you put in for your clients each and every day to make a very positive environment and experience for everyone that is lucky enough to be involved with your business!

Linda

“I am a 52 year old female client of Bob Kaczmarczyk. I was having some serious health issues when I knew I needed to do something drastic. I am very glad I made the change.”

“I would like to state that I have a very serious trainer who also cares about his clients. Bob has gone above and beyond what I feel he really needed to as my personal trainer. He also takes everything very seriously about his client’s health. He always wants to make sure that you are doing what you need to do even when you are not training. He always wants to know how his clients are doing and make sure they are eating and training properly. I feel he really cares about people and makes your time exercising enjoyable. He always makes sure you are doing all exercises properly and makes sure he corrects you right away if you are not.
He knows I had trouble with my blood pressure and always makes time to make sure that my blood pressure is heading in the right direction. I also feel Bob is always watching his clients to make sure we are not overdoing anything. All in all I honestly feel Bob is a great personal trainer!  I feel with Bob’s help I am turning my life around and becoming very healthy. In fact I have had several doctors tell me I am healthy now. I just want to say Thanks to Bob for making my life a healthier one.”

Kim S.

“Don’t be fooled by Bob’s boyish good looks and dazzling smile – he is evil and I mean that in the best way possible! He is extremely knowledgeable in and enthusiastic about all levels of fitness & nutrition. Bob will encourage and challenge you mentally, emotionally, and physically with each individualized session.”

“If you’re serious about getting into the best shape of your life, inside and out, and actually want to enjoy (and look forward to) the pain and suffering of reaching those goals, (you’ll be hooked from the first session) then Bob is your man.”

Kay F.

Kay is one of the region’s star high school swimmers. “I was first introduced to Bob through the Munster Swim Club. When I decided I needed more weight training to further my swimming, I chose to come to Heavy Metal Fitness. My top fitness goal was to become stronger so that I can swim faster. Bob has come up with a schedule tailored to helping me strengthen my legs and shoulders. We target the muscles that are necessary for swimming. My experience at Heavy Metal Fitness has been excellent. The environment is great and I have seen great improvement in my fitness level.”

The Lewis Family

“We like their attitude. Bob is very encouraging. He is knowledgeable and helpful. He makes workouts fun! We look forward to seeing Bob once a week. Heavy Metal Fitness is a great place to work on fitness goals of any level.”

Heather V.

“My husband and I feel great since going to Heavy Metal Fitness. Bob has been our trainer for six years. We have now participated in Bootcamp and Stretching in addition to our bi-weekly work outs. Bob and Tracy make an awesome team; they excel in all they do. Keep up the good work!”

Mary Ann A.

“A great place with a great trainer. It’s where ‘magic’ happens.”

“Those of you who know me well, know my story. I was large, I ate junk, and I hated each morning I woke up feeling like crap. So I decided to take control. I have reached many of my goals on my own, but I still am a work in progress. I started working out with Bob. I also do yoga on a daily basis and take classes when the time allows. This combination has taken me to a level I never imagined. They help me remind myself of my focus. I do love working out and I do love feeling sooooo much better each day.”

“I have to say that without my trainer, Bob, I know I would not have reached this fitness level. I tell him all the time how magical I think he is. I don’t know if he fully understands how grateful I am to workout with him. He has to deal with my wimpy days, my whiny days, my craziness, and my emotional highs and lows. He always has a positive attitude and keeps me wanting more. That is not an easy job and I will forever be thankful for having met him. So I hope for those of you who struggle and want change, that I inspire you to just do it, one day at a time.”

Maria A.

“Bob is awesome! Patient, encouraging & crazy knowledgeable!!!”

Allyson S.

“Bob is very a knowledgeable and professional trainer. He trains each person according to their goals and fitness level. The facilities at Heavy Metal Fitness are incredible and the music is outstanding.  Can’t wait to work out at Heavy Metal Fitness again!”

Kathy S.

“Bob has been my trainer for nearly 6 years. He is the best. Works within your physical constraints. My bad back is now strong and I have very few issues with it. Thank you Bob for believing in me when I didn’t! Life is great!”

“Working with Bob has been the healthiest choice I have made in a long time. Overweight, out of shape, bad back, and poor eating habits caused a steady decline in my health. Since I’ve started, the change is dramatic. Bob created my personal workouts keeping in mind my limitations. He is supportive, motivating, energetic, and he genuinely cares for his clients and their success.”

“Instead of the dread that comes along with some exercise programs, I look forward to my time with Bob. What I’ve gained by coming to him is strength, endurance, pride, friends, hope, happiness, energy, so on, and so on… What I’ve lost is 35lbs, blood pressure, and cholesterol by 40 points. My health is now a priority for me. I cannot find words to express all the gratitude I feel, so all I can say is thank you!”

Beth W.

“If you want a great work out and have fun at the same time Bob is the perfect trainer. He also is a great person to discuss diet and nutrition. He is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares. My friends and I do a group workout twice a week and even though he kicks our tushes we wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

“My daughter Megan has been with Bob for 3 years. She went from a scrawny long-limbed runner to a strong healthy athlete. Megan began working with Bob during cross country season the summer before eight grade. Megan had begun the dreaded middle school growth spurt and had loose joints, poor eating habits and her timing was all off in all her sports. Bob continues to give Megan the motivation, knowledge and friendship to help her work to her goals. The strides Megan has made in the last few years are a result of hard work and education she has received from Bob. We have seen the difference in her eating habits and the drive and focus she has set for herself in her workouts. We have complete faith that Bob will continue to help Megan to achieve whatever goals she sets for herself.”

Mike B.

“Trainer Bob rocks. Bob and team bring so much to the table: Fitness, Nutrition, and an authentic, fun attitude that’ll have you smiling… well, at least between sets.”

“I never thought I would like a personal trainer but Bob is great! In just two weeks, going only once a week, my sister in law and I have noticed a huge change! We aren’t where we want to be and we still make mistakes but it’s a work in progress and we can be honest with Bob about our mistakes! Give him a shot you’ll love him!”

Tasia H.

“I have only been training at Heavy Metal Fitness for 2 weeks now & I love it there. I already notice a difference in my body. Bob is a phenomenal trainer.

Lexi L.

“Training with Bob is like training with a majestic unicorn. A unicorn who is extremely knowledgeable about fitness and genuinely cares for his clients. Bob is the absolute coolest, you should exercise with him.”

Ellie M.

“I came in for a training consult and I had such a great time. I’ve been wanting to build upper body strength after having a surgery done on my shoulder a few years ago. Bob ran me through a full circuit that really targeted my arms and shoulders. Not only did he push me, but he made me feel confident and safe while doing so. Not once was I concerned about my previous injury — my body was pushed but NEVER strained.”

“I’m looking forward to coming back for personal training and I highly recommend this place and Bob. He’s knowledgeable, charismatic, and patient. I would give this business a ten out of five if it were possible!”

Jennifer S.

“No better mother/daughter bonding! Along with that comes proof that as we age we need more. Bob and Tracy are the best. Trust me, you will also find yourself saying “is this Bob approved.” Tell him Jennifer and Kristen sent you – invest in yourself no matter your level!”

Collin S.

“Do you ever see a movie and think wow that was the greatest movie of all time? Going here is the same feeling but a little better. I love Bob.”

Ronnie D.

“Heavy Metal Fitness has made my life do a full 180° in terms of health and happiness. I am proud to say I can now carry groceries and RUN up the stairs without being out of breath; everyday life gets easier, healthier and more positive when Bob enters your life. TOTALLY RECOMEND 10/10!”

Charlie P.

“This is such a wonderful place and environment. Bob and Tracy are great trainers and even better people. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Truly an awesome metal place!!!!!”

Deb M.

Hi energy level. Good people at heart. Look forward to my visits. 💕 Great workouts with Bob! He keeps me motivated and we genuinely enjoy catching up from our off days! If you are looking for a true partner in fitness, Bob is your guy! 💪🏼

Lori R.

“We live over an hour away and was very skeptical about putting our son with another personal trainer. My son is a high school football player. By his second session, him and Bob were like brothers lol! Cracks me up. We can’t speak highly enough of this man. If you have an athlete, send them to Bob.”

Sandy D.

“I feel so fortunate to have met Bob. I was in a car accident and having terrible back issues. I was under the care of a pain management specialist and still not getting much relief. I decided to start training with Bob to build my core strength. I can’t believe how much better I am feeling. I used to have consistent back pain and now I only have a bad day here and there and no longer use pain medication on a regular basis.”

“I started because of my back issues but I continue training because I am amazed at how far I have come and how much my body has changed. I didn’t go into this to lose weight or get a toned body. I just wanted to feel better. The bonus is… I have lost weight…lost inches and I really enjoy getting these weekly workouts in. I love that Bob is always there for you, listens to your concerns and always has great motivating suggestions. He always has a great variety of workouts and his quick wit will keep you on your toes.”

Shirley

“At age 55, I was having difficulty just getting out of my car and would use the door to pull myself up to get out. I knew I had to do something. I never thought I would have a personal trainer. But then I met Bob. I thought I would last 6 months. Bob’s style of training was perfect for me; he is very professional and challenges you, but makes his sessions so fun, even through the pain, that I have been training for 4 years. I have trained through back pain, plantar fasciitis, and neck pain. He knows the musculoskeletal system and tailors the workout to fix those issues but not exacerbate the pain. After 4 years of training with Bob, I have lost 15 pounds and feel better than I’ve felt in the last 20 years. My goals of losing weight and being able to move without pain have been met, but I will continue to train because I want to stay healthy.”

Kathy

“Attention all you seniors! ‘Training’ is not for just the youngsters out there. I started training with Bob nearly 5 years ago because I wanted to gain more upper body strength, keep good balance and keep my blood pressure and cholesterol readings at a place where I would not need any medications. My training with Bob has not only accomplished all these things, I have also lost nearly 25 pounds in the process. My blood pressure and cholesterol levels are that of a person in their 20’s (without medication)! I am 65 years old and counting! I will continue to train with Bob — he knows my ‘strengths’ and continues to challenge me — I don’t know where he thinks up some of these circuits! Feeling and looking better all the time — how could that not be worth it?”

Britt B.

“With Bob it’s more than just a workout. He explains exactly what each exercise is doing for my body and why I need it. His nutrition counseling makes me excited to find foods that are worthy without ever having to ‘diet’. For years I would intermittently workout and fad diet without any lasting results; Bob changed all of that for me. My body is stronger and healthier than it has ever been. Thank you, Bob!!”

Matt

“Bob has helped our grade school age group and high school senior swim club teams to become better and especially with our top age groupers, I have seen a BIG difference in the little things in the water like core strength, streamlines off walls, and kicking! Great addition to our coaching staff at MSC.”

Nicole C.

“I’ve been training with Bob for just over a year. Before I started with him, I assumed a lot of typical ‘work outs’ wouldn’t suit me well because of previous injuries. I was a treadmill walking, elliptical running, machine using junkie… When I did go to the gym. With Bob’s help, he showed me correct form and I was able to do those work outs (and more..!!) that I didn’t think I could do. He truly knows how to mold a work out for each individual person and motivates us to live a healthier lifestyle. Thanks for everything, Bob!!!!”

Savannah

“I really enjoy working with Bob because he motivates me and make me stronger. Bob always makes things fun even when working out. He also helped me fix my hip problem. Bob is an amazing personal trainer!”

Jan S.

“I went to a personal trainer to improve my bone density. The Dr. wanted me to go on medication for osteopenia but I didn’t want to do that. So I started lifting weights. In the past whenever I tried to lift weights on my own I would hurt myself. I thought I’d try a personal trainer.”

“Bob is my savior. I have been able to stay off medication and my bone density has remained stable. Bob knows just how much to push me for the best results without injury. This past summer I broke my ankle while hiking and he was still able to work around that injury and continue with my workouts. Bob always varies the workout and finds a way to make working out fun.”

Amanda

“I am a student athlete. I train to benefit my skills in the sport that I love, volleyball. Before I started training with Bob, I was training with another trainer. I loved the trainer and it was hard for me to leave. My sister trained with Bob and absolutely loved him. When I started training with Bob, he asked me what I wanted to improve on and I told him my vertical. However, as I proceeded into his program, I started noticing benefits in other aspects of how I played.”

“I am not lying when I say that Bob is the best trainer that I have ever had. The training sessions were super beneficial and helped me improve my game. If you’re willing to improve in sports and/or lose weight than Bob is your trainer. On top of improving my game, Bob and I met on a social level and that helped the workouts go smoothly. Working out with Bob has improved my skills and I also made a good friend.”

Alex

“My son Alex, an active, multi-sport athlete, began training with Bob several years ago to help his body transition from a kid’s to a young man’s. We wanted to reduce the risk of injury, build strength and overall good health. Bob works Alex hard and challenges him physically. Alex described his workouts with Bob as ‘awesome and intense’.”

“The results speak to the high level of success Alex has achieved with Bob….Alex is strong, fast and fit. He plays multiple high school sports and travel baseball. Beyond the exercise, Bob is a role model to Alex. They bond over their mutual enjoyment of movies, video games and paintballing. The investment and commitment we made with Bob is one the best decisions we made for Alex.”

Melanie

“My track/cross country coach had asked me to go to a ‘buddy workout session’ with her trainer one day. I had never been to a trainer before so I was kind of nervous. The first day I trained with Bob, I thought it was easy, although I soon realized that easy was no longer the word to describe the workouts.”

“As the workouts progressed, they got more and more challenging. Bob also asked me, when we started having more sessions, if I had any specific goals or areas I wanted to get stronger in. I told him that I wanted to work on my endurance for running and my jumping ability and speed for basketball. As my cross country season came to an end, I started feeling a lot less tired during my meets and practices.  During my basketball season, I was more conditioned and I could jump a lot higher to get rebounds.”

“However, it was this track season that I noticed the biggest change. My past two seasons for track, I came into the season adding time to all of my events. I am now improving my times more and more every day. Training with Bob has helped me even beyond my expectations. Having accomplished the goals I had set, I can now work hard to accomplishing new goals. Bob isn’t only my trainer; he is a new friend I am glad to have.”

Kathy

“I have trained with Bob for a few years. He pushes me to be the best I can be. He is always challenging me. I especially enjoy boxing with him as it requires strength and endurance. Thanks Bob for making it fun to work out!”

Stuart & Nancy F.

“As much as we tease Bob about how hard he makes us work, he does it all with a smile, good humor, and an eye for our good health and well-being. We feel stronger and better than ever thanks to Bob!”

Bill S.

“I walked into age 30 at the heaviest I’ve ever been, and with the help of Bob Kaczmarczyk – I will now leave age 30 the healthiest and skinniest I’ve been in over 12 years. With over 100lbs of weight lost, 8 pants sizes down, 2 shirt sizes down, 5 neck sizes down, and even skinnier feet – I am not done yet, but I now have the best years of my life ahead.”

“I really enjoy working with Bob personally and with my middle school dance team. He is committed to training and pushing his clients. He focuses in on strengths and weakness of the individual or group and models his workout to meet those needs.”

“Bob is a personable, energetic training machine! My team enjoys working with Bob, but they also enjoy seeing him leave after they have struggled through a good work out with him as their leader!”

“Bob helps me strive to be as physically fit as I can be. He supports me when I am working towards my goals whether it be weight loss or training goals when I am working towards a specific race for swimming and running.
He also has given me opportunities to train with others in small groups which helps with motivation and has helped me work with the athletes that I coach, always being positive and motivating!”

“Bob’s training is excellent, fun and results driven. Since I’ve started I’ve lost 12 pounds & 6% of body fat. I really can’t say enough positive things about Bob.”
