Rec Services personal trainers and fitness coaches can develop an exercise program specifically for you -- either regular personal training at the Rec Complex or aqua personal training at the Natatorium! Certified trainers and our fitness coaches have the knowledge, skills, and experience to help you achieve your goals. Besides the traditional 1-to-1 personal training, consider these alternate options:

  • Buddy personal training option: Buddy personal training means two individuals can work together with one personal trainer!
  • Aqua personal training: Aqua-certified personal trainers can provide one-on-one personal training in water to reach fitness goals. This will allow for resistive training that is lower impact than land and can be sport specific (i.e. training for triathlons). Purchase aqua personal training sessions in the office at the Rec Complex.

Women and Weights

A women only strength program. Small group environment with a strength and conditioning program created and supervised by personal trainers. To sign up call the Rec Services Office. Cost is $35 for students and $45 for non-students. Classes will be Tuesday and Thursdays, September 23-October 30 from 7-8 pm. 


Inclement weather
Whenever inclement weather may require closing of the Rec Complex or pools, we ask patrons to check for adjusted facility hours on-line, by Facebook or Twitter announcement.
