Personal training is one-on-one instruction that incorporates a fitness assessment, goal setting and health education into challenging workouts designed for your individual needs. A trainer is available for instruction on proper workout techniques and on a variety of exercises (both strength training and cardiovascular), while at the same time motivating the client to reach personal fitness goals.

The personal training program offered at Western Michigan University's Student Recreation Center is designed to assist students and staff in reaching their fitness goals. A variety of times and packages are available to meet your needs. You have the option of training individually or with a partner. You will be paired with a trained fitness specialist who will motivate and educate you on the most effective ways to train to reach your goals. The training session involves a comprehensive fitness assessment and goal setting followed by a personal program designed on the basis of the assessment results and your individual goals.
