Personal Trainers – The Office of Campus Recreation (OCR) offers Personal Trainers to its members as a fee based service in an effort to bring them closer to their health goals. The certified trainers are screened by the OCR staff to ensure a high quality of service and a commitment to the wellness philosophy.

Training times run approximately one hour. Clients and trainers do not have priority over equipment in the Weight Room. All members should demonstrate the usual courtesy when waiting for equipment by allowing people to “work in” and so on. Relay any concerns to the Weight Room worker, or to the OCR staff.

  • One Hour = $50.00
  • Minimum number of sessions = Three
  • Maximum number of sessions = Ten (no more than 10 sessions can be purchased at one time)
  • One week is given for each session. All sessions must be completed within that time frame, and the contract may be voided, and no money is refunded. For example, 5 sessions must be completed within 5 weeks of the first session.

Visit the OCR Monday through Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm (Second Floor of the Rec.Center). Call Becky Spires, Assistant Director-Wellness, at 615-343-0538 or e-mail her at
