Testimonials

“I want other students to know that this personal training service offered at the REC is absolutely worth it! I used to let the intimidation factor of the REC hold me back from exploring all opportunities it has to offer. The personal training experience has guided me with nutrition, encouraged a healthier lifestyle, given me confidence in the gym, and made a positive impact on my life.”

– Kari P. 

UWO Student

 

“The personal training program at UWO REC should be considered by anyone who is interested in reaching their fitness goals. The trainers listened thoroughly and were very proactive throughout the time I spent with them. The help I received made me more knowledgeable on exercises, muscle groups, and exercise machines. I highly recommend signing up for training!”

Fitness Consultation 

This is an opportunity to sit down with one of our personal trainers and discuss your health and fitness goals. This one-hour session includes an in-depth conversation about your current fitness and what goals you are looking to achieve. It will also include an InBody Test so we can better understand what is happening under the surface and a short 20–30–minute full body workout! Getting you on the training floor and going through basic movements will give our trainers a better understanding of how your body works and how your body moves so we can give you our best recommendations for achieving your fitness goals!  

InBody Test 

Stop in the Titan Well or schedule an appointment with one of our Personal Trainers or Peer Wellness Educators to see what you are made of! The InBody Test breaks down your body composition and in turn tracks your progress to staying fit and healthy! This is a completely FREE service to all students! 

Monitoring your weight on a standard scale is not enough. Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. Anyone may experience frustration when their weight shows no change, even with exercise and an improved nutrition. Your body is a complex structure made of different components, such as body water, fat, and muscle. Your body cannot be expressed with one simple number.  

The inbody Test will show a true assessment of your body. To thoroughly learn about your body and its condition, take the InBody Test. In less than 60s, the InBody not only examines the compositions of your body, but also reveals percentage of body fat, muscle, distribution, and body water balance; components that are key in understanding more about your body!  

Track your progress with the Inbody Test. Taking the InBody Test once will give you a snapshot of your body at that moment of time. However, taking the InBody Test consistently will give you a timeline of your progress. Watch the improvements from exercise and diet and do not let your hard work go to waste!  

Prior to testing, for the most accurate results, there are a few steps we recommend you should follow. 

  • Remove socks, and any items out of your pockets before testing 
  • Stand upright for about 5 minutes before testing  
  • Do not eat at least 2 hours before  
  • Drink a minimum of 24oz of water before testing  
  • No rigorous exercise before testing 
  • Use the bathroom before testing  
  • Take the test in the morning if possible 
  • Testing under similar conditions will enhance reproducibility when comparing tests

** individuals with medical implant devices such as pacemakers, or essential support devices such as patient monitoring systems, must not take the test**

Functional Movement Screen (FMS) 

Your journey into movement begins here! Understanding the how and why of moving well helps us aspire to move often! The Functional Movement Screen uses objective and validated standards to check the movement baseline and build foundations for lifelong movement success. The FMS is a screening tool for standardizing movement screening to see how an individual, no matter their age, is moving in everyday life. It looks at both mobility and stability and equips our trainers with information to make programming decisions with precision and purpose! The best part is – it only takes 10 minutes to get all this valuable information! The FMS identifies movement patterns the individual moves well in, patterns that could be developed or loaded. But it also identifies patterns that are not ideal and need to be protected and corrected. At the end of an FMS, we will have valuable information about you that we can use to create a program specific to you that will foster an environment to meet your goals and keep you healthy! To schedule a Functional Movement Screen, you must first have completed a Fitness Consultation! * A $10 fee will apply, unless future training sessions are scheduled*
