Personal Training

Program Philosophy

Campus Recreation supports the University of Houston mission by providing affordable Personal Training as an opportunity for learning, discovery, and engagement to the UH community. We strive to provide UH students personal and professional development through employment as Certified Personal Trainers. Our goal is to educate clients to exercise safely and effectively for life. Your Personal Trainer will work with you to develop an exercise program based on your unique history, attitudes, and obligations to help you reach your fitness and wellness goals.

Virtual Personal Training

Improve your fitness without entering the CRWC by working with a trainer one-on-one in a virtual environment. Limited access to a fitness facility increases the need for guidance from a certified fitness professional. We conduct exercise sessions via your choice of live video platform and teach you to use what you have available to reach your personalized fitness goals.
