Personal training at Laurier’s athletic complex


Lace up those shoes, charge the iPod, grab a water bottle and head to the gym!

Working out and being physically active is something that all students should strive to fit into their busy schedule. Whether it is first thing in morning for that early cyclefit class or late at night to wind down the day, the fitness centre offers a variety of programs and opportunities. Amongst these endless opportunities is the one-on-one motivation that you may have been looking for; a personal trainer!

Personal training is more then just going to the gym and having someone “watch” you. It is about getting into and understanding your specific workout plan. Working with a personal trainer will help you to experience a one-on-one fitness education program that promotes continuous health management through realistic goal setting, an in-depth lifestyle regulation, and continuous knowledge about equipment usage. Ultimately a personal trainer will assist you in how to design and continue on with your own fitness program.

A personal trainer is a coach, a role model, a supportive friend and an educator who will create a customized program tailored straight to you and your needs. Personal trainers start from the basics; they asses your specific individual needs and will then devise a workout and wellness regime all for you! They create exciting and cutting-edge techniques that are sure to get you up and keep you motivated for weeks ahead.

Hiring a personal trainer does more then just help you lose weight. It is a full body comprehension that includes a variety of accomplishments; everything from weight loss to core stability to toned and tightened muscles to sport specific conditioning.
