“My Fitness Journey: I met Kasia 7 years ago right after the passing of my late husband. I was underweight and weak at the time so I started training with Kasia.
I trained on and off for quite a while until she left my old gym to startup her own business, ProCoreFitness. I jumped around for years from gym-to-gym after that and just couldn’t find my place gaining a lot of weight along the way. I then decided after a few years to go find Kasia at ProCoreFitness and that is when it all changed for me. I believe there are people that come into your life for a reason. Kasia is one of those people for me.
I started training with Kasia one day a week and attended her Cardio Kickboxing class on Saturday mornings. I knew I was no longer the strong woman she trained me to be years before. I was overweight, weak and not happy with myself. She then approached me about joining the 60-day transformation challenge because she told me I needed to lose 30 pounds, she was right. That’s the one thing I respect about her the most, she is HONEST. I put my faith in Kasia and today I am 30 pounds less, stronger and once again the strong woman she trained me to be.
My training sessions are not all about lifting heavy weights. They are about learning the right and wrong ways of eating, talking about kids and everyday lives, but at the end of those sessions I have worked hard to meet my goals. Make goals they will only benefit you in the end.
I won’t leave Kasia, my person, ever again. I learned the hard way, but today I am strong again and the changes to my body are beyond what I thought they could ever be. I LOVE ProCoreFitness, the trainers, the people. I finally found my place again.”
"....It. Takes. Time. Goals take time.
You have to have patience. You have to have Faith. Faith in yourself, your trainer, and those you surround yourself with.
IF there is one thing I can share, that would be to never, ever give up. So cliché, I know, but truly, every day is one step closer to your goal. Even with the road blocks of everyday life.
The next day is always a new day and you will be closer to what you want. It’s not going to happen overnight. It’s not going to happen in a week, but it will happen! Focus on the plan, what you want and why.
Food and Fitness go together. I finally learned you can’t be fit without good nutrition. Kasia told me to make a contract with myself. Who better to make a deal with then yourself?
Kasia will teach you, yell at you if you want her to, consoles, and counsels you when needed. That’s why I’ve been able to achieve what I’ve never been able to achieve with anyone before.
Kasia taught me that, I AM STRONG inside and out, and brought out the fierce confident woman that I am. I CAN, and will continue this journey, as long as it needs to take!..."
"For those who know me, you know I'm not someone who posts a ton on social media. I was asked by a friend to do this, but more importantly, I believe in this program and wanted to share it with others. I've tried many fitness programs over the years and only two have helped me lose weight and feel stronger. I'm always been skeptical when I start a new program, because I go in thinking they're going to try pressuring you into purchasing extra programs or classes. I can tell you that there is no hidden agenda at ProCoreFitness and that they are there to help you succeed. Their trainers/instructors are professional and make you feel like part of the PCF family from day one. While they cater to all fitness levels, I need to tell you that it's not going to be easy and they will push you to better yourself.
While I still have a ways to go, so far I'm down 30 pounds and feel stronger at 41 than I did at 21. I think the combination behind the success is:
1. Meal Prep
2. Weight Training and
3. A Kick Ass Trainer (Kasia Topor).
Give them a try if you're ready to be a healthier version of yourself.”
“From the minute I walked through the door at ProCore, I felt like part of the family! Kasia and her staff are amazing and they truly are rooting for your success! I have been to several gyms and tried many weight loss programs, but I am truly succeeding here! I have changed drastically since starting here in January; both physically and mentally. I have lost over 30lbs and gained confidence; I thought I would never wear shorts again, but after training with Kasia, I am again! The classes are awesome, the trainers are amazing and this program works!
I am so thankful and am excited to continue my journey! If you are ready to succeed, come join me and the rest of the Procore Family!”
"The Best Personal Trainer EVER!
My name is Melissa and I am a runner. Back in April of this year I was beginning my training to run the Chicago marathon for the 2nd time.
Last year I had done the training on my own following a running program but was plagued by fatigue and injury. I completed last year's marathon in 4 hrs and 38 minutes.
Under the encouragement of my daughter (a gymnast for 8 years) she encouraged (nagged 😉) me to join a gym and work out. After looking at other gyms and their trainers I walked into ProCore and knew that KASIA / ProCore would be the one to help whip me into marathon shape.
I started my once a week "torture" sessions the end of April. Within 2 months I noticed the changes. I was getting muscles & finding ones I never knew I had. Kasia through the whole process ALWAYS encouraged, supported and pushed me. Always watching and help keep me injury free. Kasia also helped me with improving my diet with foods I should be eating or adding as well as what vitamins would benefit me as well.
At marathon time this past weekend I was ready. I looked good, I felt GREAT and knew I would do well. Kasia kept telling me not to stress and that "Lady - YOU GOT THIS!"
I finished the Chicago marathon in 4 hours and 38 seconds. I couldn't have done it without her & am already looking forward to next year and having her train me again. Thank you Kasia!!!"
"I was size 12 when I started at ProCoreFitness 6 months ago. Since then I've lost 25 pounds and I am now a size 6. I was working out before I joined, but never seen these results before. I'm not only doing their awesome classes but I do take advantage of seeing Kasia, my personal trainer, once a week.. it is very motivating. I am not only losing pounds, but gaining muscle. I actually enjoy picking out my outfits now."
“I joined ProCoreFitness in June 2015 and it has become “my gym”. Kasia suggested I train with her but I was hesitant and thought “I can do this on my own”. I saw other people who were training with her making noticeable results and wanted the same. In October 2016 I put my pride aside and told Kasia I was ready for a change. I didn’t want to admit it but I needed her help.
I believe you can do anything if you really want it. You just need to put in the time, effort, hard work, dedication, discipline and surround yourself with people who support, encourage, motivate and help you along the way. ProCoreFitness, Kasia, the other trainers and members have done just that for me. No regrets as my journey continues!”
i“My name is Wendi... I have admired Kasia ever since I met her a few years ago!
I decided that since I was getting married and have a goal I want to talk to a woman that understands women, is strong, and will kick my butt! On July 29th after a month off of working out and eating anything I wanted, I wasn't happy with how I was feeling...or how I looked. I walked into ProCore fitness and told her my goals! She was so ready to help me!
I've worked out for many years and I know I need to eat better but Kasia has a way of getting in your head and keeping you on track even when you fall off! So, my journey began on August 1st! From August 1st to October 1st, I've lost 10 lbs and have gotten stronger! With her advise, expertise and motivation I feel better now than I ever have and I plan on staying on track! She is one of a kind that has her whole heart in what she does! Thank you Kasia for keeping it REAL and for becoming a friend!! Also her motto stands true: NO EXCUSES, NO LIMITS! ❤️”
"Speechless is the one word that I can use throughout my training with Kasia. Her energy is electric! The moment I started to train with her she told me that we were going to transform my body along with my mind. I stood there stunned at the big plans she had for me. Kasia is mindful, accommodating, dedicated, knowledgeable, and my rock that I can count on during training. As my personal trainer, she pushes me to give everything I have in and out of the gym. She takes time to plan, adjust, and push forward to continue to see progress and results. I started my journey to compete as a Figure Athlete in 2014 and the day of my first show, I again was speechless. Through proper nutrition planning, weekly lifting sessions, and hard work we transformed my body. Words cannot describe how amazed I felt to accomplish my fitness goals with her as my coach and to look as wonderful as I did. I will be a life long client!"
"I was athletic during my teens and 20’s until “life” happened. Wife, kids, work etc… and all the other excuses I could come up with. It wasn’t until I turned 40 and the aches and pains started. My good friend asked me to join him training with Kasia, I was hesitant at first, looking for another excuse but figured what the heck. The first couple of training sessions where challenging but muscled through them and stayed positive. After a few months I feel like a new man. I feel stronger inside and out. I now can carry both of my children up and down the stairs with no problems and no pains. Thank you Kasia so much for impacting my life in a positive way."
"One day I woke up and decided I no longer wanted to the fat, funny friend. After years of failed diets, treadmill walking and cardio classes I had not reached any of my goals. So I spoke with my girlfriend who also desired to look cute while drinking a beer. We joined Team Kasia. It was not easy. First we found out no more beer. Then our entire diet was revamped. And then we were taught to how to strength train. I lifted weight that I never imagined lifting. I lifted that weight because I knew I needed to and because the loud Polish accent scared me a bit. I started Team Kasia October 5th. By Thanksgiving, I was down two Jean sizes. But for the first time in my life, I was tone. After three years of Team Kasia, I am fitter, leaner, stronger and healthier. I feel great and love the example I have set for my children. I also am grateful for the encouragement, laughs and support from Kasia, my friend who no longer drinks beer and all of the great Team Kasia members I have worked out with through my journey."

No, I don't do competitions for bodybuilding BUT I do compete with myself every single day and try to build the best body that I can.
🔑 to maintaining my physique in my 40's? Consistent training with heavy weights and surrounding myself with fun, supportive, motivating people who inspire me EVERY SINGLE TIME I walk into ProCoreFitness.
"Working with Kasia has been a great and beneficial experience. Without the support from her, I would have had minimal success if any. I walked into ProCoreFitness with hopes of losing some weight. I did not know I was actually starting a new journey in my life. This journey has taught me how to live a better lifestyle through the choices I make in my food, my workouts, and my everyday life decisions. Kasia has been beyond dedicated in helping me strive to be the best person I can be. Just when you think you cannot do something, she reminds you of why you are here. She will not let you fail. I will always push myself one step further because I have learned through her that in order to be successful, it will take hard work, determination, and belief. Kasia leads by example whether it be training with her or through the classes she teaches.
If there is one thing I would change about this journey, I would have started training with Kasia sooner."
