Sherry Green - Personal Trainer

Sherry G.jpg

Sherry Green is an Ann Arbor, MI native who began her sports career when she started walking at 9 months old. A track athlete at Penn State University,  she set multiple school relay records and received First-Team All-Big Ten Honors. An indoor 500m/600m specialist, she hung around on the All-Time Top 5 lists for several years post-graduation.  

Sherry spent her first year post-graduation as an ACE-certificated Personal Trainer at a boutique fitness studio in Syracuse, NY specializing with a post-rehab clientele. While she loved her job and her clients, she did not love the 130 inches of snow and therefore moved to Chicago. A job at a well-known chain broke her spirit as she quickly learned that number of sessions she could sell was more valued than the quality of her work. She entered the business world but never lost her passion for health, fitness and teaching. She will be training a select number of clients during evenings and weekends exclusively at the Body by Nature studio. 

In her free time, Sherry keeps in shape with a variety of athletic pursuits including competitive flag football, boxing and yoga. When not working out, she enjoys cooking, volunteering at the Anti-Cruelty Society (where she trains both dogs and fellow volunteers), reading and watching a bit more tv than she should probably admit. She can be reached via email at
