Buddy Training

More than just an economic alternative to personal training, buddy training offers the same benefits as personal training at a fraction of the cost. Even better, training with a friend or partner can increase motivation, support, and accountability! All below buddy training prices are listed per person.

Nutrition Coaching

Nutrition and fitness are equally important in reaching your health goals as exercising. Our Registered Dietitians can measure your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR), determine your daily caloric budget and help you plan your lifestyle to reach your goals, complete with meal plans and personalized grocery shopping experience.

Personal & Nutrition Training
  • Your RMR measurement will tell you exactly how many calories your body burns daily, at rest.
  • Our Registered Dietitians can develop customized meal plans, provide a custom grocery shopping tour, as well as provide disordered-eating treatment alongside University Health Services and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
  • Meet on a regular basis and stay on track.
  • Nutrition sessions are 30 minutes with the exception of the Resting Metabolic Rate Measurement, which is 45 minutes.
  • Nutrition Coaching packages are non-refundable, non-transferable and expire 6 months after date of purchase.
