FAU Campus Recreation Personal trainers are prepared to develop an exercise program specifically for you. From the novice to the elite athlete, our trainers have the knowledge and skills to work with you in achieving your personal health and fitness goals.

Personal Trainers act as expert guides and consultants, who assist clients in reaching individually selected fitness goals. This is accomplished by teaching the client how to perform exercises correctly and effectively.

Personal Trainers work to provide clients with the knowledge and experience necessary to develop a personalized approach to fitness that can be modified and carried on throughout life. Use a Personal Trainer for the motivation you need to accomplish your  goal. 



In order to sign up for Personal Training, students and members should visit the Membership Office located in the Recreation and Fitness Center. Payment in full is required at the time your paperwork is completed.

If you have had any serious injuries or medical conditions you will need to have your doctor approve your participation in a prescribed fitness program – please bring your doctor’s contact information with you.   Check, credit and debit cards are accepted.
