Fitness Consultation

For Recreation Membership holders:

The initial Fitness Consultation is a great way to get started with your Wellness Recreation Membership! It typically lasts about 1 hour. During that time, you and a certified personal trainer will discuss your fitness goals and options. Based on your goals, a personalized exercise plan will be developed. This plan will include the details of how and when you will exercise. The initial Fitness Consultation also often includes a tour of the facility and an explanation of how to access the various perks associated with your Wellness Recreation Membership.

As a follow-up to the initial Fitness Consultation, you may also schedule one or two additional follow-up 1-hour appointments. These follow-up Fitness Consultations will likely take place in one of the Cornell Fitness Centers. Your certified personal trainer will have written a personalized exercise program for you and will teach it to you in the fitness center. The goal is for you to learn the exercise program so that you can workout independently. Every few months, you may want to make an appointment with your personal trainer to update your exercise program. There is no fee for a Fitness Consultation or for the follow-up appointments. The Cornell Wellness staff are able to offer you up to 6 one-on-one meetings (including fitness consultations, nutrition consultations, fitness testing, and life coaching) per 1-year membership.
