How do I get started?
To get started with a personal trainer, schedule your FREE Goal Consultation to talk to a personal trainer about your medical history, lifestyle, and personal goals. A goal consultation is an opportunity for you to meet with a certified personal trainer absolutely free of charge! This session is used for you and your trainer to discuss any and all of your goals, questions or concerns relating to fitness and wellness. If you are curious to see if personal training is right for you, a Goal Consultation is a great way to find out. If you're ready to get started, you'll then get scheduled for a Comprehensive Fitness Assessment. This is done to ensure that you receive a quality personal fitness program and are medically ready for exercise. Your health and well-being is always our highest priority! To schedule one, stop by the Fitness desk, located within the weight floor of the Wellness Center or call 777-3417.
