What Can a Personal Trainer Do For You?

  • Help you set both short and long term fitness goals.
  • Design a personalized exercise program to meet your goals that include cardiovascular, resistance and flexibility training.
  • Provide you with motivation and accountability.
  • Ensure variety and enjoyment during each of your workout sessions.
  • Teach you proper form and technique for resistance training and other exercises.
  • Answer your questions about proper exercise, general nutrition, or goal setting.

Personal Training for All Members

KU Recreation Services offers Students, Faculty, Staff, Former Students, KU Affiliates, Retirees, Spouse and Domestic partners an opportunity to work with a personal trainer. To be eligible to personal train, an individual must be an ASRFC member. The 55-minute training sessions can be purchased individually or with partners.
 

Prior to personal training, all participants interested in ASRFC Personal Trainer services need to complete the medical history and consent forms, available below or at the ASRFC Administrative Office (Rm 103). Males above 44 years old, females above 54 years old, or those considered medically high risk need to complete the medical clearance prior to personal training.  Clients will be asked to update their medical history and informed consent forms annually and medical clearance as needed.

Submit the forms at the Administrative Office when providing payment for the personal training sessions. Fees MUST be paid before personal training session may begin. Keep the receipt for proof of purchase. Multiple sessions can be purchased at one time.


Once your paperwork is received and you've paid for your sessions, you will be paired with a personal trainer based on availability and matching your goals to the trainer's strengths.  To request a specific trainer or type of trainer, write the trainer's name or indicate that you prefer to train with a male or female on the line asking "Do you have a trainer preference?" located on the Health History form.  Your request will be taken into consideration when pairing you with a trainer; however, requests are dependent upon the trainer's availability including whether he/she is taking on clients.  Unfortunately, we cannot fulfill all requests.  Review the Meet the Trainer webpage to learn about the trainers and to check their availability.

 

Sessions expire one year from date of purchase and are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Sessions must be canceled 24 hours in advance. Improper cancelations will result in the loss of session and fee.

We are not a HIPAA entity, but all information is private and confidential.
