Personal Training

Halas Recreation Center offers personal training.

What is included in my personal training package?

  • Fitness evaluation—This is a series of tests designed to assess cardiovascular fitness, body-fat percentage, flexibility and muscular strength and endurance.
  • Personalized exercise program—An individualized exercise program is designed based on the individual's fitness evaluation results and personal fitness and health goals.  This exercise plan will be carried out through the duration of the client's sessions.
  • Supervised exercise—Personal attention during exercise is the primary function of personal trainers.  Clients are given a detailed orientation that addresses the aerobic, strength and flexibility components of the exercise program, and are educated about the fundamentals of strength and aerobic training, as well as the proper and safe use of equipment.
