Personal Training

The Fitness Centers provides FREE personal training programs with a membership. The Fitness Centers also provides FREE one-day orientations for those looking to become familiar with the Fitness Center and the equipment. Personal Trainers are available to design and demonstrate a safe and effective exercise program to help you reach your goals.

Personal Training Program Sign-up

You can sign-up at either Fitness Center by inquiring at the front desk or by filling out the information below. Once your name is taken you will be contacted by one of our personal trainer coordinators to set-up a 15 minute initial evaluation. At this evaluation we have you fill out a basic health history and discuss your exercise goals. You may be asked to provide a doctor's note. Following this evaluation, you will be contacted by one of our personal trainers to set-up your first meeting time. We ask that you please be on time and keep all of your appointments.

Please be aware that our personal training program is quite popular and we have limited numbers of personal trainers and resources. We are on a first come, first serve basis, so please be patient. If you have further questions or are curious how much longer you may have to wait, please contact the personal training office at 312-6001 or e-mail us at fitness@oswego.edu.
Personal Trainers are qualified to train individuals of most fitness levels in apparently healthy populations. The personal trainer program is not intended to address rehabilitative concerns.
