Personal Training Policies

Recreation and Wellness Policy Regarding Personal Training at the HLS Facility is restricted to only those individuals that are employed as Personal Trainers and/or Fitness Monitors through Recreation and Wellness. Any participant observed or even assumed to be personal training with a patron in this facility that is not employed as a personal trainer will have their HLS Facility privileges suspended or revoked. An individual may be suspected of personal training if he/she is (but is not limited to:)
Assisting a patron/s with:

  • Program writing & design
  • Meeting with the same individual on a frequent basis
  • Following a patron around the room and telling them what to exercise next
  • Patron pays another individual that is not a Recreation and Wellness Personal Trainer for an exercise session

The following reasons justify why personal trainers not employed by Recreation and Wellness are not allowed to train within the HLS Facility.

  • Recreation and Wellness cannot adequately control the quality of personal training from individuals that are not employed by the department. These individuals may not have an adequate academic background, ability, training or experience to correctly train clients. In addition, Recreation and Wellness is very limited in its ability to regulate these individuals in order to prevent or correct potential erroneous information or technique passed on to clients.
  • Individuals not employed by Recreation and Wellness have not been trained by our staff, policies, rules, guidelines, procedures, or standards and therefore, are unauthorized trainers.
  • A legal liability arises for Recreation and Wellness if we are aware of outside personal trainers working within the HLS Facility.
  • Profiting from the use of State property, i.e. Recreation and Wellness's equipment and facilities, without consent is illegal.
  • The use of the HLS Facility for outside personal training is in direct competition with the personal training service that  Recreation and Wellness offers.
