  • 5 star review  Audric is awesome! Both of my boys saw him for agility training for baseball. We saw improvement in both of them. We will definitely be back for more conditioning!

    5 star review  My daughter's body has taken a beating in Gymnastics. She came to Audric with the tendency to dislocate her shoulder and extreme hypermobility. His training and techniques have taught her to control her hyperextension and she is pain free! Thanks for all you do Audric!

    thumb Dawn Nicholson

    5 star review  Audric has been a Godsend! My daughter has spent the last few years in and out of physical therapy due to sports related injuries and wore braces on almost every joint possible. I watched him transform her and she was able to train and compete without the braces! Heโ€™s extremely knowledgeable and patient and just an over all great person. He has even come to Support during competitions. So grateful he was recommended to us. We would not go anywhere else!

    5 star review  Audric is a truly talented knowledgeable Trainor. Aside from assorted sprains and strains, he rehabbed my daughter back from an avulsion fracture in her arm. He is a proactive and reactive Trainor! The best!

  • 5 star review  Audric is very knowledgeable, talented, and extremely personable. My daughters and I have been receiving therapy and training from him for over a year now and we have all benefited greatly. He has helped us heal from new and old injuries as well as improving athletic performance for my daughter. We all highly recommend Effort for any physical therapy or athletic skills training needs.

    5 star review  Audric has been great!! Not only for my daughterโ€™s training but he helped during her rehabs too! She loves going there and he pushes her to keep getting better...my son goes to him too and itโ€™s been such a help in his agility and speed. Canโ€™t say enough good things about Audric; so happy we found Effort!!

    thumb Tabatha Foy-Creasbaum

    5 star review  Audric is great with my daughter! She is shy and quiet and he brings out a confidence in her that I have not seen. She feels so proud of herself with what she accomplishes there. I appreciate his ability to work with her in a kind and compassionate way. She looks forward to every week going there.

    thumb Erica Massey-Lembcke

    5 star review  Audric is the best, hands down. He has been vital in the rehab and maintaining for my back. Every time I leave, I know what stretches/exercises to do and feel better than what I went in with. I would highly recommend him. I have been doing rehab and strength conditioning for 8 years now. No one, from physical therapy to even personal trainers, comes close to what he does and helped me with.

  • 5 star review  Only been once, but Audric was great with my son! And my son also enjoyed his session. We will be regulars here for a long time!!!

    thumb Dan Thompson

    5 star review  I went in with sciatica and lower back pain at a level 8 the first night I saw Audric. I could barely carry my purse or walk upright. I left at a 2!!! Audric has always relieved my pain, taught me how to alleviate my pain through stretches and exercises. He has given my a renewed hope that I will be able to do what I love EXERCISE, walks, hikes, biking-I wouldn't be able to do this without his therapy. He is gifted, and he shares this with every person that comes through his door. He took care of my husband, and put him in the right direction also!!! I really was close to ready to give up doing all I love until I met Audric. Thank you!!

    5 star review  Since meeting Audric, he has always been 100% professional, has always shown genuine concern and a knowledgeable and direct path for treatment! He has taken care of both of my daughters, mostly my 14 yr old gymnast. I have just recently been treated by him also: 40 yrs old, rugby on Saturday, painful lower back pain Sunday morning, Audric and cupping Sunday evening...heavy legs and plyo workout Tuesday morning= 5 Stars!!!! We love Audric and Effort!

    thumb William Silverback

    5 star review  Audric is really good at what he does and is very knowledgeable when it comes to training and rehab. He also is not afraid to say what needs to be said and is there when you need him. The workouts were challenging but productive and fun. I definitely got better as an athlete working with him in the off season and would recommend him.

    5 star review  Audric was great with my daughter when she sprained her ankle at gymnastics. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My daughter was back to flipping in no time thanks to Audric's treatment and rehab! We would definitely seek out his expertise if she's ever injured, again.

    5 star review  We've seen Audric for many of my daughters aches and pains after Trampoline and Power Tumbling...he does a great job understanding the athlete and helping them move into the direction they desire. She likes him and is comfortable with him and we like that!

    thumb Lylli Woods Noonan

    5 star review  I have worked with Audric for both rehabilitation and sports performance training. Last fall, I strained one of my leg muscles and it was affecting my skating. After consistently doing the various stretches, exercises, and utilizing the graston technique to the muscle, the muscle strain decreased. Within a month or so I was feeling back to normal and haven't had any trouble since! I really enjoy Audric's sports performance workouts! They are developed for each individual athlete's goals based on which sport they are involved in. The workouts develop as you get stronger and more comfortable so he is always challenging you! I'd definitely recommend Audric, he's a great trainer!

    thumb Stephanie Peters

    5 star review  What a knowledgeable guy, I would suggest him to any athlete looking to gain effective knowledge into sports performance.

  • 5 star review  Audric has been training the CCSJ wrestling team for 2 preseasons now, and all I can say are positive and amazing things about his program. Every day is something new, exciting, and challenging. We are a month into our regular season and the team has sustained absolutely No serious injuries. This is a testament to the rigor and attention that he puts in through the process. Audric holds complete professionalism and much understanding on the process to great performance and recovery. Two thumbs way up.๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ

    4 star review  Audric helps my athlete achieve her goals. He knows exactly how to maximize performance and check for weakness. Love the training!!

    thumb Elizabeth Gerette

    5 star review  Audrick does a very good job in a lot of different ways. From coming up to lifting plans from conditioning, he definitely helps any athlete become stronger and better. He's also very involved in making sure injuries are prevented and lifts are properly done. He doesn't sugar coat anything and expects the most out of anyone he trains. Very good investment for any athlete.

    thumb Alondra Segoviano
  • 5 star review  Audric trained my sister and I over the summer. It was the perfect way to keep me in shape. It really helped me improve and all of the coaches I know have noticed a difference. I highly recommend training with Audric.

    thumb Jadyn Evans

    5 star review  My sister and I worked out with Audric this summer every Thursday night. I'm a cheerleader while my sister is a hockey player; two completely different things, I know! Although me and my sister had completely different interests and completely different athletic abilities, Audric made sure I got what I needed and my sister got what she needed. Not only does he push you, but he encourages you and gives you great feedback. I love the fact that he also keeps track of your progress! In the process, we grew to become close with Audric and could laugh, joke, and mess around. Huge thank you to Audric for everything you've done for us this summer! Highly recommend going to him! I will definitely be going to him again soon!

    thumb Mackenna Evans

    5 star review  My daughter has had numerous calf injuries, back strains and arm injuries over the past four years from playing college volleyball. Audric was great and took care of all of them. He is very knowledgeable and she likes his personality as well.

    thumb Diane Lukowski Osmolski

    5 star review  I have gone to Audric on multiple occasions. Being a college athlete and taking a year off from playing volleyball, I needed to get back in shape with agility and performance. Every time I went in for training he was right there encouraging me to push harder. Audric was awesome with rehabbing my shoulder to 100%. He always made sure the exercises I was doing was never too much or causing any additional pain. I really liked how Audric explained why I was doing the different types of exercises along with stretches. I made a pretty quick recovery giving the fact that I could hardly raise my arm above shoulder length, and had a week set back. I highly recommend Audric for any type of work whether it's rehab, conditioning for a sport, or just for fun.

  • 5 star review  I met Audric last year at the Midwest training and Ice-Dyer. My daughter had an ankle injury from her grueling trampoline and cheer schedule. His patience, technique and treatment led her to a complete recovery. He gave her exercises for her to work on to improve strength at home between treatments with him. We still call him whenever we need sore or strained muscles tended to! He is professional, personable and I highly recommend him.

    5 star review  Audric developed a great pre-season workout plan for my college wrestling team. He was there everyday to implement and walk them through each workout, including recording and tracking their progress throughout the program. I highly recommend Effort, and hope to have Audric back to work with our team again.

    thumb Ryan Rivera

    5 star review  I have been working with Audric about almost a year now. He has helped me bounce back from minor injuries and I have gotten total progress playing on the soccer field! Highly recommend him.

    thumb Tabitha Marie Burrink

    5 star review  Well tailored therapy & treatment plan for rehabing my son's shoulder injury. Audric was in touch with my son's school coach and also the athletic trainer to ensure proper treatment and technique continued when he was released. We are very thankful for everything he has done for us!

    thumb Michelle Fuscoe
  • 5 star review  Audric and his staff have done such a wonderful job helping my daughter, Kiersten, recover from a torn ligament and knee problems that occurred while playing multiple sports for the past 10 months. He helped her get back to playing sports through several physical therapy appointments and has showed her proper training techniques to prevent further injury. Audric and his staff are very professional and super friendly!

    thumb Chrissy Burczyk-Gora

    5 star review  Audric and his staff are dedicated to helping injured athletes make a full recovery and return back to the sport they love!

    thumb Amanda Donovan

    5 star review  I would highly recommend Audric! He has been a huge impact on my daughter. He has helped her with conditioning and with speed and technique with her running. He is an amazing trainer! Thank you Audric for all your hard work you put into your athletes!

    thumb Sheri Platusic

    5 star review  Audric & his staff were fantastic in stressing proper training principals and techniques, while helping my Bantam hockey team with off-ice sport specific and non specific training. The baseline concussion testing & analysis done by him and his staff will help my players track their progress throughout their careers, in any circunstance where they may receive a concussion and need treatment. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to my boys!

    thumb Brad Garney
  • 5 star review  Audric helped the Calumet College wrestling team in our pre-season conditioning with plyometrix and agility training. He used an intelligent diagnostic system to target areas that we needed to work on, and the results were quite noticeable by the end of our pre-season training period. He was on time and reliable in attendance to our 6AM workouts, despite some harsh weather. I recommend his help for any athlete looking to increase physical dexterity and intensity by a system that is testable and effective. Good work Audric, and thanks for helping me make it to nationals!

    thumb Tyler-Wayne McCoy

    5 star review  Audric's services were awesome!! My son suffered a concussion in December playing hockey. Audric worked one on one with him until he could get back on the ice. Thx Audric!

    thumb Vanessa Saliaris Ames

    5 star review  I HIGHLY recommend Audric! I have been running in pain for a year, and after four weeks of rehabilitation with him, I am almost ready to run a marathon! Also, my daughter split her eyebrow open at gymnastics and he was immediately at her aid. Thanks Audric!

    thumb Angel DelVecchio-Mills

    5 star review  Audric Warren was the Chi Town Shooters Head Athletic Trainer for 3 years. His knowledge, expertise, and individual patient attention were a vital part of the success of our team. He kept guys on the ice through preventative maintenance exercises and got the injured guys back into the line up and performing ahead of schedule nearly every time we had an injury.
