Personal Training Policy

  • Payments are to be made in advance. Any continuing sessions may be purchased at any of the following locations: College Avenue Gymnasium (Room 105) and the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center (Administrative Office).
  • Student Rates are only available to FULL-TIME Students.
  • Personal Training sessions do not expire. However, due to inherent changes in health/fitness status, clients that have not trained with a Rutgers Trainer within the past 6 months must undergo a reassessment. You may either purchase another Start-Up Package or use the first of your remaining sessions as a reassessment.
  • We are not able to issue monetary refunds for remaining sessions more than 6 months after purchase date.
  • All first time clients will be asked to complete a full request packet.
  • Appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance by contacting your trainer directly.
  • A missed appointment or improper notification of a cancellation will result in the appointment being forfeited. You will be charged for the appointment.
  • Please be ready to begin each appointment at the scheduled time. Unfortunately, appointments will not be extended for late arrivals.
  • Please wear proper workout attire (preferably T-shirt and shorts) to all training sessions including the assessment. It is imperative that sneakers are worn for personal training. We are not able to reschedule a workout session due to improper dress.
  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, exercise and other strenuous activity the day of your assessment.
  • Avoid eating for 3-4hours prior to all assessments. Please remember to hydrate normally.
  • Only personal trainers affiliated with Rutgers Recreation are permitted to conduct sessions within our facilities.
  • Please keep your receipt as proof of payment of your Start-Up Package.
  • Larger training packages are available for purchase once the Start-Up sessions have been completed.
  • Tandem and small group training available. Contact the personal training coordinator for more information.
