Personal Training

What is personal training? 

Personal Training is the science of teaching a client how to move their body correctly and efficiently in every exercise and movement. Personal trainers also help clients customize their workouts to their goals and needs so they can maximize their individual potential! 

How to register for personal training 

Step 1: Contact us 

Clients, please complete our Personal Training Inquiry Form. For further questions please contact Angela Marchbank, Fitness and Wellness Coordinator at amarchbank@upei.ca

Angela will assign a personal trainer who best meets your needs. The trainer will then contact you to set up a time for your initial assessment.  

Step 2: Initial session and consultation 

During your initial session and consultation, our trainer will gather the information that is necessary to design a program specific to your needs. Please review initial session fees on this page.

The initial assessment will consist of: 

  • Paperwork (GAQ and health history form) 
  • Blood pressure and heart rate 
  • A discussion of your exercise history and your fitness goals 
  • Physical assessment (including tests for mobility and movement, strength, flexibility, etc.) 

Step 3: Book your session 

Before your initial assessment ends, schedule your next training session. 

Once your first session is complete, you and your trainer can decide how many sessions you will need/want to help achieve your health and fitness goals.

  2. No refunds will be issued for services purchased. 
  3. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance to reschedule the session. If the cancellation is less than 24 hours the appointment will not be reimbursed/re-scheduled.
