The Personal Training program provides participants with both the tools and education necessary to accomplish personal health and fitness goals in a non-intimidating, one-on-one atmosphere. Whether you just decided to start exercising habitually, are training for a sport-specific goal, or planning on participating in your first 5K or triathlon, our personal trainers can help you achieve your goal. Campus Recreation personal trainers are certified through nationally recognized organizations such as the American Council on Exercise (ACE), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) or the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

A personal trainer will assess the 5 components of fitness: cardiovascular endurance, body composition, muscular endurance, muscular strength and flexibility. Results obtained from the fitness assessment provide an accurate measure of your current fitness level, and serve as a baseline to design an individualized exercise program based on personal health and fitness goals. Regular assessments are a great way to track change over time. Our personal training staff will compare your results to peers in your age group, using guidelines established by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Fitness assessments are approximately 45-60 minutes in length.
Every semester personal trainers offer free blood pressure and body composition screenings at the recreation center.
