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


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!). Join with a friend and choose Monday & Wednesday at 12 Noon, Monday & Wednesday at 5:30 pm, or Tuesday & Thursday at 5:30 pm.  Campus Recreation Early Access Members may only select the Monday & Wednesday at 12 Noon session.

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!
