The mission of the Personal Training Program is to assist Students, Faculty, and Staff at Truman State University with reaching their fitness potential and improving their quality of life through physical activity and healthy habits.
Your Personal Trainer will be a Truman State University student with at least one semester of experience working in the Student Recreation Center. Our Personal Trainers possess a national certification in addition to successfully completing our “in-house” training.
The Personal Training Program
The Personal Trainer Program offers fitness assessments and consultations to help develop a personalized fitness program for individuals of all fitness levels. Sample goals from past clients are listed below:
