Among the many services the Campus Recreation Center (CRC) offers, one of the most distinctive and personalized is fitness training. The CRC offers individual, buddy, and group training for students, staff, faculty, and alumni. The training services allow for a more personalized approach to fitness as compared to G.I.T. FIT classes, which are themed exercise classes offered weekly.

The CRC has eleven trainers that offer individual, buddy, and group training. These trainers can meet with clients anytime the CRC is open, so scheduling is very flexible. Workouts take place in different parts of the CRC and around the Georgia Tech campus. Students can buy training packages in two to ten sessions depending on their needs and goals. A complimentary fitness assessment is included in the purchase of the fitness sessions and includes strength, flexibility, body composition, endurance, and polar body age testing.

Personal training is a one-on-one session with a trainer to discuss and achieve fitness goals. Typically, personal training is a good choice for any level of exerciser, from those who need motivation and guidance to start working out, to advanced exercisers looking to reach a specific goal. Personal training is offered in two-, six-, or ten-session packages and cost from $17 to $28 per session. Students are encouraged to meet with the personal trainer on their own schedules. So while some prefer to meet with a trainer for every workout session, others might only need to meet with a trainer when they need to be motivated or when they reach a plateau with their current workout program.

Buddy training pairs two people with one trainer. It allows for personal time with a trainer and the opportunity to train with a friend. Some students use buddy training to train for events or to add a competitive edge to their workout. Buddy training is offered in two-, six-, or ten-session packages ranging from $21-$38 per session.

Lastly, group training offers a personalized routine at a reduced cost. Groups can range in size from three to six people, and students can form a group with their friends or be placed in an open group. The group training is also tailored to each individual and provides an environment where the whole group can work out together. Group training is available in packages of six one-hour sessions, with each package costing $60.

The training programs at the CRC allow for students to have a tailored, flexible workout program to help them reach their fitness objectives. Students can register for classes at the CRC Member Services desk or by contacting Faith Doldo at 404.385.1651.
