Florida State University's Fitness program offers a variety of training options for students and members including small group training sessions. Our entire staff is comprised of nationally-accredited, certified personal trainers.

Start to Fitness 2.0 Program

Exclusively for Faculty and Staff

Start to Fitness 2.0 will soon be open for Pre-Registration! This small group personal training program exclusively for FSU faculty and staff will pair a 4 person team with a nationally certified trainer to identify and meet their fitness goals. Teams will accumulate points for showing up, participating, meeting goals and for extra workouts!  Friendly competition between teams will be encouraged as teams move from Start to Fitness.  The 10-week program for Campus Recreation members provides individualized training programs from nationally-certified personal trainers. Participants meet twice each week (that's 20 sessions!). Choose M/W or T/R at 5:30pm, space is limited!

At each training session, your personal trainer will provide guidance to their team on using specific fitness equipment, knowledge on how to meet shared fitness goals, and motivate everyone throughout the entire program! Start to Fitness is designed to make you accountable to your trainer, team mates and most importantly, makes fitness fun!

Start to Fitness is Full for the Fall semester, but will be back in Spring 2018!  Look for pre-registration deals at the end of the semester.
