About Me

My name is Ben Sonnenburg and I am the president of Bean’s Fitness. I have a strong desire to help others and achieve their goals.  Not only do I understand how to help someone become stronger, but I can also empathize with the changes needed to be healthy. 

I have dedicated myself to 4+ years of training experience with certifications in; Personal training, Nutrition counseling, Corrective exercise, and a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. I work with lifestyle and athletic clients, and I really have a heart for people with chronic joint pain.

I have helped athletes and people struggling with pain for over five years and have worked closely with physical therapists in the area.  Which has created a “Next Step” from physical therapy back into normal life.  I teach how to build consistent patterns and emphasize the importance of functional movements.


Some of my degrees and certifications are; BS, CPT, PN1.  I have  received a Bachelor’s Degree of Science with a concentration in kinesiology at Olivet Nazarene University.  While studying at Olivet, I pursued additional education on top of regular schooling.

From the national academy of sports medicine, I am certified as a personal trainer and received another certification in corrective exercise. 

Nutritional Training

Additionally, I have achieved a nutrition certification from precision nutrition and currently work as a nutrition coach. 

Postural Restoration

Furthermore, I have received a certification from the postural restoration institute in myokinenematic restoration and plans to continue learning from the postural restoration institute.

My Health Background

Though I have Ehler’s Danlos hypermobility and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, I have learned to overcome them through proper training and nutrition.

I have a passion to help people with the same conditions and work tirelessly to ensure that they are supported.   

I currently work with clients in person at my Deerfield Illinois location.
