Personal Training

The Ole Miss Fitness Personal Training Program is designed to aid the client in the pursuit of his or her individual fitness goals. Our certified personal trainers provide you with a fun, yet challenging exercise program and motivational support. We work with a wide range of clients with varying fitness goals, but no matter the objective, we have a trainer who wants to work with you. Our personal trainers will challenge you to step outside your comfort zone and enhance your life through movement while providing motivation every step of the way.

Our trainers are all certified through nationally accredited organizations such as the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). Additionally, our trainers have completed a 15 hour in-house training course designed to supplement the knowledge and skills obtained via certification. We continually develop our trainers through fitness trend education, equipment specific training, and experiential learning.

We are currently working hard to prepare to resume in-person personal training sessions the first week of the fall semester, beginning on Monday, August 24th, 2020. Remaining sessions from the Spring 2020 semester with our current clients will be given first priority of resuming sessions. At this time there is currently a waitlist to be paired with a Personal Trainer for Fall 2020.

To be added to the waitlist, please complete a Personal Training Packet, and return to

Some of our planned changes to both our individual and partner sessions:

  1. Screening of employees and patrons prior to entering the fitness spaces and Campus Recreation facilities
  2. Face masks or face coverings for both client and trainer at all times
  3. Creating spaces off the main fitness floor for more private sessions (Examples include: Personal Training Suite, Group Fitness Studios, and outdoor locations if preferred)
  4. Maintaining social distancing as much as possible at all times
  5. Eliminating some of the physical touch parts of physical fitness assessments, including a Zoom call for the first assessment/goal setting session

We are currently training our Personal Trainers to prepare them to beginning in person training and are excited to help you reach your fitness goals!
