These professionals in training provide quality services at affordable prices while helping their clients achieve a healthy lifestyle.
How to Purchase
New clients are no longer being accepted for the Fall 2021 semester. Please check back in Spring 2022.
New clients must go through our fitness assessment before beginning personal training. To purchase a fitness assessment or personal training sessions, you can buy a "membership". The memberships will be called "Personal Training - Fitness Assessment" and "Personal Training - # Sessions". You can buy more than 10 sessions if you would like by buying 10 sessions, then buying another set of sessions to make up the difference. Follow the steps to complete the purchase. To purchase in-person, visit the Service Counter in the lobby of the Student Recreation Center on the Atlanta campus.
Purchasing this "membership" will only grant you the ability to schedule a personal training session. It does not grant you access to our facility. You have to be a Recreation member to gain entry to the facility.
Once you’ve made your purchase you'll be contacted by Fitness Center staff via email within 3 business days to schedule your assessment and/or sessions using Microsoft Bookings.
You may use your sessions anytime during the posted hours of availability on Microsoft Bookings as long as you're currently enrolled or have an active membership. The purchased sessions expire 1 year from the purchase date.
Personal training sessions can include cardiovascular strength training and flexibility exercises. Sessions can only include matters within the scope of practice offered by the Fitness Center staff. The Fitness Center reserves the right to make referrals out rather than provide services to clients when issues exceed the scope of practice of the staff.
Cancellations and Rescheduling
Canceling or rescheduling sessions requires at least 24 hours of advance notice. The Microsoft Bookings confirmation email provides a link that allows canceling or rescheduling. If 24 hours' notice is not given, the session will be forfeited. Sessions that have not begun 15 minutes past the scheduled start time will be forfeited.
Refunds will be given for sessions if there is a documented medical issue that precluded the provision of 24 hours notice of the need to cancel or reschedule. A refund will also be given if the scheduled sessions are returned to the session pool for administrative purposes.
