Do you offer personal training?

While we don’t offer traditional personal training, all members can receive free consultations with our Fitness Specialists. These interns are upperclassmen in our department who have completed important Kinesiology coursework and are preparing for careers in the health/fitness industry. Fitness Specialists will be available to perform walk-in fitness assessments, demonstrate proper use of equipment, provide exercise training programs, assist with workouts, and help you achieve your fitness goals.
