Am I a member?

Personal Training includes:

  • Full Assessment: A full physical evaluation assessing your height/weight, resting heart rate, blood pressure, body composition, cardiovascular fitness, posture and flexibility levels. Note: You must complete the online medical Par-Q form prior to evaluation.
  • Body Composition: A trainer will measure your body fat percentage and cardiovascular levels. This is an effective baseline measurement for tracking your training progress.
  • Exercise Design: Using the results from your fitness assessment, a trainer will design a personalized fitness program based on your goals, current fitness level and exercise preferences.

Small Group Sessions are for 3-4 people.

If you're a current client, we value your feedback. Feel free to fill out our Personal Training Evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've never been to the Activity Center's gym. Where are the personal trainers located?

They are located in the fitness center.

Can I train even if I don't currently attend UT Dallas? Do I have to get a membership?

The non-member price includes the daily use fee. You must have a Comet Card or driver's license when entering the building.

Do personal training sessions expire? Can I get a refund if I choose not to train anymore?

Personal training sessions do not expire. Unfortunately, you cannot get a refund once you purchase sessions, unless it is for medical reasons (bring a doctor's note saying you cannot workout anymore). However, if you decide not to train, you can transfer your unused sessions to a family member or friend.

How long are personal training sessions?

All sessions are one hour. However, you may talk to your trainer about breaking your sessions in half to 30 minutes if you wish. It is ultimately up to your trainer. All clients are urged to come in 10-15 minutes early to warm up on cardio equipment before the scheduled meeting time.

Are trainers certified?

All of our personal trainers have a personal training certification they must maintain for the duration of their employment. All of our trainers are also certified in Red Cross CPR/AED.

I can't make it to the lesson and it's today. What should I do if I cannot contact my trainer 24 hours in advance?

We understand life is full of the unexpected. Contact your trainer by either email or phone. If you have the trainer's personal cell phone number, call and leave a message. If not, contact the Activity Center front control desk at 972-883-2090 and leave a message with your name and trainer's name. UREC reserves the right to charge for the session if not more than 24 hours' notice is provided.
