My name is Dan Wilk. Fitness and education have always been an essential part of my life. I joined a gym on my thirteenth birthday and I have been hooked ever since. Nine years later, I graduated magna cum lauda from Western Illinois University with a degree in Kinesiology. After graduation, I taught Physical Education and coached Freshmen Baseball at Fenton High School. As time passed, I continually became frustrated with the lack of lifelong health and fitness that I encountered in physical education methodology. As a result of my frustration, I decided that I wanted to help individuals of all ages progress through personal training and started working as a personal trainer. After two years of full time personal training, I decided to get back into education and was hired as the Assistant Director for Loyola Chicago University's Library of Congress' Teaching with Primary Sources Program. While working for the Library of Congress, I also continued working as a personal trainer. As a personal trainer, I combine my skills as an educator as well as a promotor of life long fitness to better help individuals understand fitness and nutrition and to provide my clients with the skills necessary for this to become a way of life.
