As part of our wellness programming, Healthy Habits has designed a personal training program that connects staff and faculty with students through exercise. Our Personal Trainers are junior and senior exercise science majors or recent exercise science grads. Not all of our trainers are officially certified, but all have been trained through classes taken as part of their exercise science major, and are advised by a certified ACSM Exercise Specialist® in addition to Faculty.

Program offerings: PERSONAL TRAINING PLUS (individual), GROUP (with 3-6 others) and PARTNERS (with a partner)

Who's eligible? Calvin faculty, staff, emeriti and spouses are welcome to sign up for personal training with an eligible Calvin ID card.

How it Works

Six-week and twelve-week personal training is available through Healthy Habits on a fee-for-service basis. Personal training is one-on-one (or with a partner) instruction based on the needs and goals of each individual. It can include such things as equipment orientation, a formal exercise prescription, correct exercise form, corrective exercises, and exercises for special needs. With all personal training, your trainer is there to motivate you and keep you accountable!

Our first-time clients
