The paperwork includes a Health History Questionnaire – please bring any relevant information regarding medications, injuries or other health-related issues. If you have had any serious injuries or medical conditions you will need to have your doctor approve your participation in a prescribed fitness program – please bring your doctor’s contact information with you. Payment in full is required at the time your paperwork is completed. Cash, check, credit and debit cards are accepted. All Personal Training packages require that you complete an assessment at the Fitness Assessment Center. The assessment will provide the Personal Trainer with baseline fitness and musculo-skeletal information used to individualize your training program. The assessment is included with all Personal Training packages.
Our certified Personal Trainers are here to assist you with your lifestyle and fitness goals. The Personal Trainers will assess your current fitness level and then create a personalized exercise program to meet your fitness needs.
