*The Senior Exercise Science Practicum requires students complete 80 hours of Personal Training as a component of the clinical experience. Students are only allowed to train currently enrolled GC students and faculty/staff. The majority of Ex. Science students are not yet certified Personal Trainers, but are training to gain practical skills and knowledge outside the classroom. Due to the clinical requirement to receive academic credit, clients must commit to a 6 or 12-week program and a minimum of two (2) one-hour training sessions per week. There is no charge if additional sessions are agreed upon by the student trainer and client. All WRC Personal Training policies apply to the Student Practicum Package.
*All Sessions must be used during the semester they were purchased.

You will receive a free fitness assessment with your personal training package. This will be your first meeting with your trainer. The assessment will allow your trainer to have a better understanding of your fitness desire, level and background information regarding your fitness condition. After you have completed the assessment, your data will be analyzed in order to formulate your personalized training program. You and your trainer will set up the first session of your program at the end of your assessment. Fitness Assessments will be done periodically to monitor goals, improvements and changes to your health history.
