Personal Training

Our certified personal trainers will help you achieve your fitness goals and get results! Our goal is to provide you with safe, effective, science-based programming along with exceptional service and continuous support. During your scheduled sessions your trainer will work with you to perfect your form and provide you with educational and motivational feedback to help you reach your goals.

Our personal trainers are uniquely talented and knowledgeable in many areas including: general fitness, lifestyle changes, weight reduction, stress management, sports training, senior fitness as well as those with health conditions. Their diverse backgrounds and educational experiences have prepared them to serve you and help you meet your personal goals.

You and your personal trainer will work together to establish your training frequency and length, which is based on your goals. Some clients wish to train once per week while others may want to train two or more times per week for increased health benefits. Our training sessions are 30 or 60-minutes in length. Longer sessions allow for more instruction, learning time and emphasis on the exercises.

Students, members and non-members can choose training sessions or packages that fit their personal goals. We offer 30 and 60-minute personal training sessions. Sessions are scheduled based on the availability of the client and trainer. We also offer duet, trio and small group training sessions.

Getting Started

  1. Complete a Personal Training Request Form available at the Welcome or Fitness Center Desk (online version) and return to the attendant. A welcome letter and a health history questionnaire will be given to you at that time.
  2. Clients will be contacted within 2–3 business days by the Assistant Director of Programs to schedule an initial consultation and review your completed health history questionnaire.
  3. Your initial consultation will include a review of your health history questionnaire, personal fitness goals and personal trainer/schedule preferences. Following this consultation, a personal trainer will contact you in 2–3 days to set up your first session.
  4. Purchase your personal training sessions/package at the Welcome Desk prior to your first personal training session.

Please Note: Should it be determined that you require physician approval, you will be asked sign a medical clearance form that will be faxed to your physician. The completed form must be returned to us before your personal training sessions begin.
