ISU Small Group Personal Training Image

Your decision to do small group training is one of the best investments you can make for yourself. Regular exercise is a major self-care strategy. Small group training allows a group of individuals to train together for a common goal while receiving individual attention. A trainer will assist you and your group in designing an exercise program. Whether your group is training for a team run, fitness challenge, to improve health, or just wants to workout with friends; small group training is a fun and safe way to exercise.

Groups benefit because the cost per person is lower than the cost of training one on one with a trainer.

The trainer will design exercises appropriate for each member of the group. You will gain tremendous confidence and your adherence to exercise will be enhanced as a result of attending all sessions with your group.

Can we select our Small Group Trainer?

Yes, you may as long as the Personal Trainer is employed by the ISU Campus Recreation personal training program and their schedule can accommodate the group.

How long are the Small Group Training sessions?

The training sessions are one hour in length, they can NOT be set up in 30-minute increments. Trainers will schedule sessions according to the group’s availability.
