Personal Training

Personal Training provides an individualized fitness experience to current Clayton State University students and Fitness Center members. The goal of the Personal Training Program is to assist clients in achieving physical fitness benefits effectively. A Personal Trainer will work with participants to recommend and instruct proper exercise techniques while teaching safe and effective use of fitness equipment.  Personal Trainers may NOT provide nutrition advice or individualized nutrition plans.

All personal trainers are current Clayton State University students who have obtained a nationally recognized personal training certification (ACSM, NSCA, ACE, AFAA, NASM, etc).

Each package includes an initial consultation (1 hour in length) prior to the first personal training session.

No refunds will be issued after initial purchase.
