Your certified personal trainer can design a training program specifically for YOU based on your individual profile (including age, exercise history, fitness level, goals, available equipment, schedule availability, medical history, etc.). To save time, many diet or fitness programs are based on a general, one-size-fits-all approach and use computer-generated programs. But, most exercisers are more successful at reaching their goals when using a program that is designed just for them. We utilize the extensive profile you provide to develop your customized program so that you are always doing exercises that are just right for YOU. We design programs for all fitness levels, and use with a variety of exercise equipment or even no equipment at all. Unlike other fitness programs that take your money and then forget about you, Our Personal Trainers will be there with you through every step and we offer this service at an extremely low cost to you.

Fitness assessments are a great tool to help you make exercise a part of your daily life. By evaluating your fitness level and health risk, we can establish a personalized exercise program designed to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. Assessments are recommended prior to beginning an exercise program and throughout the progression of your exercise routine. This program is only for Recreation and Wellness members and benefits those interested in improving or maintaining their current fitness level. All assessments are performed at the Student Recreation Center. Fitness Assessments measure your current level of fitness, assist in goal setting and tracking of your progress. In addition, they track a variety of health related components, and improve motivation! A fitness assessment provides a baseline measurement of cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance and strength, body composition, blood pressure and flexibility. The assessment takes about 45 minutes to complete. Please make sure to wear athletic-style clothing. Shorts are preferred due to the body composition measurement on the thigh. Schedule your assessment today by calling 683-3384 or stop by the SRC front desk.
