Maxine Manquen

Our registered dietitian Maxine Manquen is available to individualize an eating plan for you that provides a balance of delicious, nutrient-rich foods to help you achieve your health goals.
She has more than 13 years of experience following a plant-based diet and has the knowledge to assess your current diet and help you create healthier eating habits.

Betsy Philips

Betsy Phillips has been a personal trainer for over 5 years.  What makes her different from other trainers is her life experience. She gets obesity. She understands the pain, shame, and hatred. She has lived what her clients are living. Her love of training was born out of my strong desire to help those who feel left out, defeated, and overwhelmed by the diet and fitness industry. She has her BA from Lake Forest College and is certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and also has her Corrective Exercise Certification (CEC). 

Mike Robinson

My name is Mike Robinson. I first discovered my passion for fitness while attending college at the University of Illinois in Champaign. I completed my training certification in November 2011 through American Council on Exercise (ACE) and I have worked as a personal trainer at Sachs Recreation Center since then. I have enjoyed working with members of all ages and experience levels, from teenagers to seniors, and I look forward to working with many more of our amazing members in the future!

Barbra Shapiro

Barbara Shapiro's focus is helping clients achieve better health, improved posture, body awareness and confidence through core training. Through the use of unstable surfaces and other functional pieces of equipment she emphasizes the importance of training in multi-dimensional planes preparing your body for everyday life. She offers a full body workout concentrating on balance, agility and strength.
