MyFit (Individualized Fitness Program)

About

MyFit is an individualized program that helps you work towards overall wellness by setting goals relating to your current health and wellness, fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle. Each client receives a 4-week calendar and exercise printout created specifically for you to get started or add to what you are already doing. Your first session is an intake to help you identify your needs, likes, time, and equipment access. We can design programs to be complete at the Rec Center or somewhere else. MyFit clients work with certified Personal Trainers or trainer Fitness Specialist.

Sessions

  • Intake Session– this session is used to identify your goals, talk about resources and education to help you reach these goals, your likes/dislikes, and your time commitment for a fitness program. This session is skipped for renewals.
  • Renewal Session – this session is to see what updates you would like to make to your program. This can be modifications or additions to what you already have, or trying a completely new program. This session replaces the Intake for renewing clients.
  • Program Session – at this session, your Fitness Specialist will present you with your 4-week fitness program. They will walk you through the progressions and make sure you feel comfortable with the exercises provided. You will complete the program independently, however you can always reach out to your trainer with questions.
  • Follow-up Session – for those renewing, this session will be for you to discuss any changes you would like to make to your program. If you are not renewing, your Fitness Specialist will guide you on how to continue your program and other ways to continually work towards wellness.

How is MyFit different than Personal Training?

The 3 main factors are lower cost, scheduling flexibility, and the ability to have workouts planned for the Rec, home, or another gym. It differs from Personal Training by being a program you are taught and complete on your own time, as opposed to scheduling workouts with a trainer. We can also make programs that you can complete at home, whether you have any fitness equipment or not.

Personal Training

About

Personal Training is like MyFit, but you will complete scheduled workouts with a certified Personal Trainer present at the session. You will still set goals and be provided workouts to complete outside of the sessions, but this option allows for supervision during scheduled workouts and on-the-spot feedback. This is a great option for those looking to have increased accountability and anyone need more supervision due certain medical or health needs.

Sessions

Sessions will be schedule based on a frequency that works for you and your Trainer. See “Costs” below for package options and pricing. The Intake session is free and does not count toward the sessions purchased.

  • Intake Session – this session is used to identify your goals, talk about resources and education to help get you reach these goals, your likes/dislikes, and set up when you and your Trainer will meet.
  • Training Sessions – your Trainer will lead you through workouts at each session, providing feedback and education along the way. You will also get workouts to complete outside of your sessions to assure you are doing all you can to work towards your goals.

Disabilities and Access Center Referrals

Students that have registered with the Disabilities and Access Center (DAC) have the chance to work wiht our Personal Training & Adaptive Recreation Coordinator, Caleb, for free. Clients have the chance to work 1:1 with a trainer to get started or advance on fitness goals that work for them. Clients typically receive about 8 sessions. Interested students should talk with staff in the DAC to get started. 

Group Training

About

Group Training is like Personal Training, but in a group setting. You will still set goals and be provided workouts to complete outside of the sessions. This is a great option for those looking to workout with a buddy or buddies and work with a Personal Trainer at a lower cost.

Groups can be anywhere from 2-4 people. Everyone in the group must have a similar general goal they'd like to work towards and have an interest in the same type of workout. The trainer will lead 1 workout for the whole group. Different abilities and experience levels can be in the same group, as the trainer can provide several options for all exercises.

Sessions

Sessions will be schedule based on a frequency that works for you and your Trainer. See “Costs” below for package options and pricing. The Intake session is free and does not count toward the sessions purchased.

  • Intake Session – this session is used to identify your goals, talk about resources and education to help get you reach these goals, your likes/dislikes, and set up when you and your Trainer will meet.
