COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

Personal Training

As a part of the Fitness and Wellness Program within the Department of Campus Recreation, Personal Training offers customized fitness programs to align with individual goals and abilities. All personal trainers in this program are certified through nationally accredited associations.

Personal Training is available to all of the UNC Community and there is a range of services and packages to fit your needs. Learn more about these offerings at the Front Desk or see below.


EDUCATION: A personal trainer will help in the development of education regarding how to move your body, creating a proper exercise scheme, and how to stay safe while exercising. Fitness and wellness education is essential to maximize the effectiveness of your workouts, help build your personal understanding of your own body, and fundamentally keep you safe with all future fitness endeavors.

MOTIVATION: A personal trainer can provide the encouragement you need to start a new healthy lifestyle. A personal trainer will also help you set appropriate goals and create a personalized exercise prescription to accomplish them.

CONSISTENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY: A personal trainer can hold you accountable and help you overcome limitations that might take you off course, and can help you establish a new healthy routine.

INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION: Everybody and every “body” is different. Your personal trainer will stay away from the generic cookie cutter approach and will create an exercise based prescription that is specific to your unique body mechanics, experience, fitness level, preferences and goals. You will be more likely to maintain a program that fits your unique needs.

EFFECTIVE WORKOUTS: With a trained and certified personal trainer, you will have a partner who wants you to succeed.  Along with an individualized plan and encouragement, you can be sure that the workouts from your personal trainer will be progressive toward your goals.

SAFETY: With honest communication between client and personal trainer, workouts will be conducted safely and under trained supervision to limit the risk of injury. Contrary to online workout programs, our Personal Trainers can and will provide real time feedback for proper cueing, movement pattern correction, and spotting which will help create more efficient and effective movement mechanics, ultimately keeping you safe and on pace to achieve your goals.
