The personal training service is designed to promote healthy lifestyles and to teach the client how to effectively and efficiently use their body to reach their fitness/lifestyle goals.  Campus Recreation's personal training programs can include:  weight management strategies, sport specific training, cardiovascular training, weight training, and/or flexibility training.  All Campus Recreation personal trainers are here to provide their clients with safe, effective workouts designed to educate and meet realistic goals set forth at the beginning of the training sessions. 

All Campus Recreation personal trainers are required to hold and maintain a nationally recognized certification and are CPR/AED certified.  However, our trainers are NOT allowed to give any specific nutritional/pharmaceutical advice to their clients.

To sign up for a certified personal trainer, three simple steps need to be followed:

  1. Print off and fill out the REGISTRATION FORM along with the consent forms and fitness questionnaires. You can also ask for a registration form at the Member Service's desk at the entrance of the CPA.
  2. Bring the completed forms to the member services desk at the CPA and turn them in.
  3. You will be contacted by a personal trainer within 10-15 business days to set up an appointment.

All ETSU students, faculty/staff and retirees receive a complimentary 1 hour consultation. Spouse, domestic partner, alumni and dependent members are NOT eligible for the complimentary consultation (but are eligible to purchase a training package). This form is to be filled out for the complimentary consultation or to purchase a personal training package.

After the complimentary consultation, patrons may purchase one of the following packages. All package fees are to be paid at the Member Services desk with cash, check, debit, credit or IDBUCS. Online payments can be made through the member portal above.

Note: The Personal Training Service may not be for everyone. The service is NOT meant as a substitute for intensive rehabilitation or therapy.  The Department of Campus Recreation reserves the right to refuse personal training services to any patron if their medical limitations exceed the abilities of our staff. In addition, we may request medical clearance before any training can begin. Your safety is our primary concern.

Due to the popularity of the program, time slots fill up very quickly and our trainers become extremely busy. It is important that, you the client keep all personal training appointments. If cancellations are made less than 24 hours before a scheduled training session, the client will be charged one session.
