To sign up for a personal training session:

1) Visit the OCR Monday through Friday, 8:00 am -€“ 5:00 PM (Second Floor of the Rec. Center)

2) Fill out the registration forms.   A doctor-€™s consent and clearance from a certified athletic trainer may be required depending on your health history.

3) You may either request a trainer or you will be matched with one that will best suit your needs. If you request a trainer, we will make every effort to match you with that trainer.   If that is not possible, you will be matched with the one that best suits your needs.
