Our trainers utilize a unique combination of equipment and bodyweight exercise to guide their clients into achieving personal fitness goals. Individual, partner and small group sessions (temporarily suspended) are available and are tailored specifically to meet individual needs at both facilities. Personal Training Services are only available to UREC members.
