In 1994, I founded Body Symmetry, a fitness training and consulting company based in Springfield, IL. Personal fitness training became my full-time profession in 1992. In the last 28 years, I have conducted over 50,000 hours of individual training sessions, including thousands of movement screens and program designs for people of all ages and abilities.

There is an ever-growing interest in health and fitness throughout the world. My mission at Body Symmetry is to lead my team of trainers to inspire and educate our clients about the various ways they can improve their wellness through sound nutritional habits and proper forms of exercise.

I am also the founder of FreeFitnessVideos.com, an online health and fitness training platform that allows users to view hundreds of exercise videos, as well as create, save and send workouts. My staff at Body Symmetry uses FreeFitnessVideos.com on a daily basis to create and send workouts to our clients that choose to exercise on their own at home or when traveling.

Not many people can say they do what they love for a vocation. I'm one of those few, lucky individuals, and I am thankful people in our community have discovered Body Symmetry.

I was born and raised in Springfield, IL, and participated in a variety of sports in my youth.

After graduation, I completed an internship at Body Symmetry, where I gained hands-on experience and a passion for personal training. 

 

From helping clients accomplish their goals to educating others on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, I love making a difference in people's lives!

KEVIN PIGG

PERSONAL TRAINER

30 Minute Session: $60 • 55 Minute Session: $90

 ACSM CPT

My journey into the fitness industry started at Litchfield High School when I began weight training for football. My coaches instructed me on proper technique and motivational strategies, but by the time graduation came, I realized that there was much more to fitness than just training for sport. I eventually found myself enrolled in the Exercise Science program at Illinois State University where I learned more about health and fitness than I ever could have imagined. Towards the end of my college career, I had the opportunity to intern at Body Symmetry under Chad. I gained more knowledge and hands on experience than one could ever ask for.

I thoroughly enjoy working at Body Symmetry and working with clients that have different goals and needs. I love seeing a smile on a client’s face as they leave the studio and take pride in knowing that I can make someone feel better by promoting physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

ACSM CPT, CSCS

I was born and raised in Carlinville, IL. Sports and fitness have always been a huge part of my life. I was first introduced to the fitness industry when I began playing football. Following my passion for football, I attended Simpson College in Iowa to continue playing football and studying Health Sciences. After multiple injuries, I transferred to Illinois State University to finish my new degree in Exercise Science. During my time at ISU, I realized how much exercise can affect the physical and mental health of each individual in a positive way. I discovered my passion for personal training during my internship at Body Symmetry and have continued my education by pursuing several advanced fitness certifications.

NSCA CPT

My passion for the fitness industry started at a young age, when I was in junior high school. My physical education teacher had the biggest impact on my decision to become a personal trainer. She introduced me to the world of working out and living a healthy lifestyle. My passion continued to grow once I got into high school and started playing golf. After graduating high school, I decided to pursue a degree in Exercise Science from Eastern Illinois University. I had decided the fitness industry is where I wanted to work for the rest of my career. After graduating from Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science in the summer of 2021, I became an intern at Body Symmetry. I gained lots of hands-on experience with various clients and I learned a lot from Chad and the other trainers. My goal in the fitness industry is to make an impact on people's lives and to help people achieve their goals. I hope to make an impact on every client that walks through our doors.

PERSONAL TRAINER

NSCA CPT

Growing up, fitness and sports were always a large part of my life. It started at a young age when I first fell in love with baseball. Around the age of 12, my dad, who has a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology, would help me train and teach me the importance of physical fitness. This helped me in high school to have a stand-out career; so much so, that I was able to continue playing baseball at Lincoln Land Community College. I studied for my Associate's Degree in Health and Science at LLCC. Upon graduating from LLCC, I transferred to Illinois State University, where I continued my education. While at ISU, I went through two internships; one part-time at TPC (Training and Performance Center), and another full-time at The PIT: 4 Seasons Health Club. After finishing, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science. I continued my education at Body Symmetry, completing a 10-week internship program. Recently, I obtained my NSCA-CPT (National Strength and Conditioning Association - Certified Personal Trainer). In the near future, I plan to complete the CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) exam.

Currently, I train a variety of clients, ranging from young athletes to older adults. I particularly enjoy the challenges presented by each of my clients. I’m looking forward to an exciting and long career at Body Symmetry.
