Personal Training Frequently Asked Questions

What is Personal Training?

Personal Training is one-on-one instruction that incorporates a fitness assessment, goal setting, fitness skill & technique and health education into challenging workouts designed for your individual needs.

How do I purchase a Personal Training session?

To purchase a personal training session please see the cashier at the SRC Service Desk. You will fill out a information form and pay for your session(s). The forms will then be given to the Assistant Director-Fitness/Wellness and you will receive a call within 24 hours to schedule your training session(s).

Do I get to select my Personal Trainer?

In order to best match a client with a personal trainer we conduct client phone interviews with all new clients. This allows the Graduate Assistant-Fitness to match you with the personal trainer best suited to help you reach your goal. At this time you can also indicate if you have a preference for a male or female personal trainer.

When will I hear from a Personal Trainer?

After conducting the client phone interview the Graduate Assistant-Fitness will match the client to a personal trainer. The personal trainer will receive all the client contact information and will make contact within 24 hours following your phone interview. Should you not hear from a personal trainer please call us at 387-3543.

What occurs during my first Personal Training session?

Your first Personal Training session is called the Welcome Package and includes the following: pre-assessment consultation, fitness assessment, program design, equipment orientation and first workout. Your personal trainer will dedicate time for goal setting and will create specific workouts to meet your needs.
