Personal Training Cancellation Policy

Failure to show up for a session will result in a forfeit of the session. Exceptions will only be made in the case of a medical emergency accompanied by a doctor’s note. Note: No refunds are given unless a written medical excuse is provided.

Initial 4 Sessions FREE

Session 1: Fitness Assessment

Your personal training program will begin with a fitness assessment, which will give you and your trainer an accurate measure of your fitness level. The testing and consultation regarding your results will take approximately an hour. Fitness evaluations are a great way to determine your current fitness level and to monitor and record your progress! This evaluation will include measures of:

  • Resting heart rate
  • Resting blood pressure
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Muscular fitness
  • Flexibility
  • Body composition

Sessions 2-4: Exercise Program Development

During the 3 remaining sessions, your trainer will work with you to teach you how to complete your exercise program safely and effectively. These sessions will be spent actually working out with your trainer. By the last session, you will understand how to correctly conduct each exercise in your program. At the end of the 4th session, you will be given a program to take with you. At this time, you may choose to purchase additional session with your trainer.
