What to Expect

Step 1: Filling out the Initial Consultation Request Form

The first step of any Personal Training package is completed by filling out and submitting a Free Initial Consultation Request Form using the link above. This non-binding form creates an opportunity for a personal trainers to learn about their potential clients, which includes sections such as the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ), daily nutrition and activity habits, as well scheduling preferences. 

Step 2: Getting to the Initial Consultation

After submitting the Initial Consultation Request Form, a trainer will contact you within 24-48 hours to set up a date for the Free Initial Consultation. The Initial Consultation boils down to a conversation between the trainer and the client, going through the PARQ, and ensuring that both parties understand the goals and expectations of every subsequent session. Each of the trainers employed by the Fitness Department has completed various exams to obtain certifications qualifying them to work with any client imaginable, and once the consultation has finished, the next step is to set up a time for the Fitness Assessment. 

Step 3: The Fitness Assessment

The Fitness Assessment serves to provide each personal trainer an opportunity to analyze a client’s ability to perform simple to mildly challenging movements, as well as record physiological data that can be referred to when tracking progress. Fitness Assessments are free and typically occur at both the start and end of a package, with a 6 to 8-week gap in between. Once the Fitness Assessment has concluded, the exercise sessions can properly begin!

Step 4: The Session

Every session goes for about an hour, on a day and time that is agreed upon by both the trainer and the client.


Personal Training Packages

A one-hour session will include goal setting, health and fitness education, programming to meet your individual needs and motivation to help you achieve your stated goals.

Year: Junior

Major: Exercise Science 

I got into fitness because of Soccer and Tennis. I got into weightlifting around 2021 because of my attempt to lose fat. I know firsthand what it’s like to struggle with weight loss, as I lost 55 pounds myself. I’m passionate about helping others reach their goals and live healthier lives. I know that there is a lot of information online, but it can be difficult to know what is accurate and what is not. I can help you find the correct information to help you reach your goals.

I have always loved moving to music and getting active in my school’s sports teams, be it basketball, volleyball, and softball! I’d watch YouTube dance fitness videos in highschool, and really enjoyed the idea that fun dances could be an excellent and engaging way to exercise! Once I came to MSU, I participated in various Group Exercises classes, and knew that this was the type of career I would love to go into! Since my junior year, I have been creating routines for my new position in the fitness department in the rec center. Now working as the dance fitness instructor for over a year, I’ve come to enjoy the routine creating process, the teaching process, and the ability to help others engage more in the rec center, and find ways to better their health through my classes!

I have since gotten my CPT, and am excited to stretch my instructing ability to personal training, to better help those who are looking for a fun and structured exercise, and learn new ways to improve themselves and their confidence in the gym!

What’s up, my name is Trey and I’m a Certified Personal Trainer here at the Student Recreation Center! I’m a junior and an Exercise Science major with hopes of eventually becoming an Athletic Trainer for a professional sports team. I’m always around the SRC either working or working out, so don’t be surprised if you see me a little too much. Fitness has been a part of my life for a long time and continues to impact me on a daily basis. I want to take my knowledge and experiences that I’ve been through in my fitness journey and share it with as many people as possible. There is a lot of prejudice around going to the gym and people that go to the gym, so one of my goals is to break those ideas down and introduce you into a community that can be very encouraging and helpful, not the bad wrap it usually gets. My personal training philosophy is centered around the client and creating a positive experience that can be built upon and promotes self-efficacy. One of the things I always say is “I won’t make you do something that I wouldn’t do myself!”

I am a current Junior majoring in Exercise Science. Certified as a Personal Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, I have the knowledge how to optimize training for any type of individual with any goal in mind. I have had experience in a diverse variety of settings such as rehabilitation in the physical therapy field as well as the field of fitness and strength training. As an avid lifter myself who constantly applies new fitness trends, research, and a modern and evolving knowledge to my own training regime, I look to apply and share these methods to any client no matter where they are on their fitness journey. I find that the inspiration to explore the capabilities of the human body and the desire to stay disciplined is contagious. I would like to welcome all individuals no matter the goal, whether it be weight loss, hypertrophy, strength, and all other goals encompassed within the broad spectrum of physical fitness. With my Big 3 Lifts, in the total of 1000+ pounds, I currently enjoy training my Squat, Bench, and Deadlift!

Year: Junior

Major: Computer Science

I first got into fitness because of the sports I played in the past. I wanted to get better and gradually got more invested in how to train for these sports. This interest grew when I started working at the recreation center and found out that I could be a personal trainer. I thought about how I could learn more and help my family and friends understand and be more involved with their fitness if I go through with this and here I am!
