Our coaching team and community of members at Revolution Fitness share a similar passion and mindset of improving our personal fitness and overall well being while helping others to do the same. It’s an inspiring, fun, and great community of individuals!

My coaching philosophy is simple: everyone is an individual and has different fitness abilities and goals. My role as a coach is to help you reach your potential, and there are many ways to get you where you want to go – I just help you choose a path and stay on track.

Spencer cotton

Coach

With a background as a Gymnast for over two decades, a Trainer and Coach of 13 years, and a Fitness Enthusiast my entire life, it would be safe to say that health and wellness is a big priority for myself and the people around me. My ambition is plain and simple. I want to carry health and happiness on my shoulders and share it with anyone and everyone I meet. I believe that there is no life fully fulfilled without knowing and showing the best of who you are with the world around you and to the ones you love most.

The ability to fully understand and utilize your body and mind at its fullest potential allows you to succeed in any and every situation life may throw at you or you throw yourself at. Whether your goals are to own your own business, be a professional athlete, or be the best 1st grade teacher in the world, you need a strong body and mind to help push you forward when obstacles try to hold you back.

I have had the amazing opportunity to coach alongside some of the best teachers of fitness in the world and been lucky enough to walk beside and help hundreds of others achieve, both physically and mentally, what they thought to be impossible.

Come walk beside me and my amazing team of professionals and let’s see what you’re capable of!

Ken Gray

Coach

I was a gymnast at Naperville Central High School (class of 1981), and began running seriously around age 30. In my 40’s, I moved into triathlon, and began to include more focused strength work in my training. I discovered CrossFit and OCR in 2015, and began coaching in 2018. I am also a Psychology professor at College of DuPage and am very interested in Sport Psychology.

My coaching philosophy is an extension of the principles that guide me in the rest of my life.

Always learn and improve. Always have a goal but enjoy the journey. Never give up.

Beatrix Kenesei

Coach

I grew up in Hungary and graduated at Eötvös University, specializing inbiochemistry, microbiology, genetics and immunology. My plan was tobuild a carrier as a researcher, but life happened, I  moved across the pond, had 4 kids and rediscovered my passion in CrossFit.

With my biology background I’m mostly interested in the science of
CrossFit, or with other words, the science of health: how to optimize
your training, nutrition and recovery based on the available scientific
research and how to bring this all to our members. I would like to help
everyone to discover scientifically proven, long term solutions fitting
their individual goals and guide them in achieving their best health.

I also believe that to master your body you have to master your mind,
too. We build mental and physical strength together and encourage you to discover your true potential.

And what makes this all so much fun is our amazing community at
Revolution Fitness. Our athletes and coaches bring true inspiration and a lot of joy to me, which I hope to share with you!

EDWARD SOLIS

Coach

I have been a member of Revolution Fitness, previously CrossFit C2L, since late 2017, and have been a coaching CrossFit since August 2018. I currently hold a CrossFit Level 1 Certification. I believes that through fitness one can breed an unconquerable mindset that will create not only improved health, but also happiness and success in all facets of life.

I am a graduate of the University of Illinois (Illini) and am a lifelong resident of the Chicagoland area. I believe everyone can chase excellence, by making a simple choice: “day one or one day. The choice is yours.”

ted gonzalez

Coach

The roots of my fitness journey began back in college. I attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), and served that community as a resident advisor and a leader of the Health and Wellness Committee. During my time at SAIC the Health and Wellness Committee worked closely with a dance/movement therapist that introduced me to yoga. I realized then that yoga wasn’t only a form of expression, but also a form of exercise that can be practiced at anytime and anywhere. After I graduated college in 2013 and moved back home to Naperville, I explored and practiced a handful of different types of yoga ranging from fast-paced Vinyasa to slow-paced Yin/restorative.

Eventually, I determined my yoga practice needed to be paired with a totally different fitness discipline, and my mom convinced me to join her down at CrossFit in 2016. We spent a few years dedicated to personal training with the goal to really understand Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting. This is when I really developed my passion for the barbell movements and to this day it’s what excites me most when I’m at CrossFit. The barbell movements (especially Olympic lifts) are a constant work in progress for all of us and can be overwhelming at times regardless of experience level. My coaching philosophy is simply that sometimes we need to slow down movements one-on-one in personal training in order to speed them up in the exciting class environment!
