Work continues to move rapidly on Vanderbilt’s new multipurpose facility and recreation center expansion.

Construction crews have been busy adding steel trusses to form the frame of the structure, while also working to add roofing to the areas of the facility where trusses have already been welded into place.

We will continue to provide updates on the construction progress until work is completed. The multipurpose facility is scheduled to open Oct. 31, 2013 with work completed on the recreation center’s enhancements in January, 2014.

How to Get a Personal Trainer -€“ Policies & Procedures

The Office of Campus Recreation (OCR) offers Personal Training services 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.

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.

4) Pay for your sessions in OCR.   Sessions are paid by cash or check; payment cannot be made from the Commodore Card.   Payment is due at registration.

5) The trainer will contact you to set up the appointments.

Other stuff to know – Training times run approximately one hour.   Clients and trainers do not have priority over equipment in the Fitness Center.   All members should demonstrate the usual courtesy when waiting for equipment by allowing people to -€œwork in-€ and so on.   Relay any concerns to the Fitness Center staff, or to the OCR staff.
