Personal Training Packages

Sign up for Personal Training sessions by filling out a Personal Training Packet. Note, membership is required.  After the packet is complete, please email it to uscrecsports@gmail.com. A personal trainer will contact you within two business days to set up your first session.  You will be invoiced for your sessions and payment must be made before the first session.   You may pay through the online store or at the Lyon Center and HSC Membership desk.

Body Composition: $15

A body composition assessment analyzes the body’s weight in terms of absolute and relative amounts of lean body mass and fat mass. This 15 minute body composition assessment will include hip and waist circumferences, Bioelectrical Impedance (BIA) and 3-site skinfold measurements.

Assessment: $60

Fitness assessments are a great way to identify strengths and weaknesses, set realistic and attainable goals and measure progress.  This 45 minute assessment will include baseline measurements, body composition, height and weight circumference, cardiovascular endurance, muscle endurance, and flexibility.

Quick Start: $100

This two-session service includes a 45 minute fitness assessment and a 60 minute overview of a progressive three month workout plan to meet your fitness goals. Your exercise plan will be based on your goals, workout preferences, fitness level, and available time.  By utilizing your personal trainer’s demonstration and hands-on application, you will have a clear understanding of how to complete workouts on your own.

1-on-1 Sessions: 1 Session: $60, 4 Sessions: $210, 10 Session: $465                                             

Together, you and your personal trainer will develop a personalized exercise program based on your health history, goals and fitness level. Your trainer will instruct you on proper technique and exercise options, as well as motivate you to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Group/Partner Sessions (2-5 people): 1 Session: $90, 4 Sessions: $300, 10 Sessions: $675

Interested in Personal Training with a few friends? Small group training, for two to five individuals, is a blend between group fitness classes and 1-on-1 sessions.  It is big enough to provide a fun atmosphere, yet small enough to provide quality instruction and one-on-one attention.

Interested in becoming a USC Personal Trainer?
We will be offering an educational Personal Training Prep Course through the American Council on Exercise during the Summer Semester. Participants will also have the opportunity to interview for a Personal Trainer position. However, employment is not guaranteed just because you completed the course.  Upon successful completion of the ACE Personal Training Prep Course, participants will have the opportunity to interview for the position. Top candidates will be hired to join the USC Rec Sports Personal Training Team. New trainers will complete an intensive four week program, working alongside experienced trainers who can immediately begin to mentor you through a process of continuous and incremental improvement.  Please note that becoming a Personal Trainer can be a rewarding part of the academic experience, however it is a large time commitment. Before beginning the course, carefully consider your current involvement in outside extra-curricular activities.

For more information regarding this course, please contact Karrin Moldrem, Fitness Coordinator at 213.740.5305 or by email at moldrem@usc.edu.
