Personal Training

Our Personal Training Program is designed to help educate you to exercise safely and effectively as well as assist you with your personal fitness goals, whether you want to lose a few pounds or need help designing a workout right for you. Your personal trainer will provide one-on-one instruction that incorporates a fitness assessment, goal setting, health education, and exercise design.

  • Training by TAMUC students with certifications through nationally recognized organizations such as ASCM, NSCA, ACE, or NASM, with additional American Red Cross CPR/AED and First Aid certification.
  • Full Assessment: A trainer will complete a physical evaluation assessing your height/weight, resting heart rate, blood pressure, body composition, cardiovascular fitness, posture, and flexibility levels. Note: You must complete the online medical Par-Q form prior to evaluation.
  • Body Composition: A trainer will measure your body fat percentage and cardiovascular levels. This is an effective baseline measurement for tracking your training progress.
  • Exercise Design: Using the results from your fitness assessment, a trainer will design a personalized fitness program based on your goals, current fitness level, and exercise preferences.
