Policies and Procedures
Anyone who schedules a session with a trainer and fails to show up to 2 sessions with minimal or no prior notice to the trainer may forfeit their remaining sessions.
All fees must be paid in advance at the front desk of the Student Recreation Center during facility hours of operation. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted. Clients will be paired with a personal trainer who will administer a comprehensive fitness assessment prior to the start of the training sessions and develop the customized workout program for the client. The client and trainer will set up a training schedule based upon availability and number of sessions purchased by the client. Please come dressed to workout for all sessions.
Please dress comfortably in clothing that is both breathable and non-restrictive. A t-shirt should be worn or on hand at all times. Shoes should be practical, supportive, and comfortable. If you have questions in regards to your workout gear, please ask your trainer or refer to Campus Recreation’s Dress Code.
