The purpose of the Personal Training Program is to provide safe and effective movement programs to patrons of The George Washington University through one-on-one fitness consultations and individually-designed programs. Our mission is to enhance the overall health and quality of life of our patrons. We want to create a balanced lifestyle that will contribute to the individual’s long-term physical, emotional, intellectual, and social growth. The Personal Training Program encourages individuals to enhance their level of strength, endurance, and flexibility in the most productive, practical, joyful, and safest manner possible.

The Lerner Health & Wellness Center’s nationally certified personal trainers provide the motivation, education, guidance, and individual instruction required to achieve personal fitness goals. Trainers will design a tailored exercise program for each individual that reflects the client’s objectives, fitness level, and experience. Trainers will also evaluate and modify the exercise program according to the changing needs of the individual. 

Who should seek a personal trainer?

  • Patrons who need an individualized program for specific needs and goals
  • Patrons who desire individual attention and feedback
  • Patrons who have reached a plateau, and would like to enhance performance
  • Patrons who want to add variety and intensity to their workout


At this time, GW Campus Recreation will not be offering personal training. We will resume this offering in the spring semester. If you are a personal trainer interested in working for us, please email [email protected]
