Personal Training Groups

Are you ready for something different? Leave it to us to be on the cutting edge and bring the hottest fitness craze in North America to Ellensburg. University Recreation is excited to announce our Large Group Training. It seems so new, yet this type of fitness has been around for over 150 years. How do we explain it? Many people strength train with weights while others do cardio or aerobics, our group coaching is somewhere in between. Personal Training at the CWU Recreation Center gives you the benefits of both. Your body will get stronger, your cardiovascular fitness will improve and you will burn calories and watch your body change.

This new concept is set up in group class using tools including kettlebells, sand bags, ropes, medicine balls, TRXs and other fun, different equipment. This type of training is a great way to shake things up and give you a full body workout, burn a ton of calories, and get your metabolism going. A kettlebell is basically a weight with a handle on it that can be used for numerous exercises you don’t typically see in a gym. It may seem intimidating at first and we highly recommend that you have an instructor teach you how to work with them. There is some skill involved, but anybody can learn and we can teach you at the Recreation Center. There is absolutely no way to describe this workout without inviting you to try it.

If you would like to give training a try demo week is the first week of every quarter. This is your chance to try things out risk-free.  

Group training is a great opportunity to:

  • meet people with similar goals as you
  • push yourself and push your teammates 
  • compete with yourself to improve every week
  • get a stress free plan that will keep you on track with your fitness goals
  • have fun at the gym in a great environment 

Large Group Training are groups ranging from 8-12 individuals.  The workouts are total body calorie obliterators. Programming is primarily designed to lose weight while sculpting your muscles. Large Group Training is programmed for the afternoons and you'd train twice a week. Included with your team training would be an unlimited group fitness pass for the quarter to keep you busy on your off day. 

Small Group Training is a group ranging from 3-6 individuals. The workouts are tailored to your specific goals and you won't necessarily be doing the same workout as the other individuals in the group. Programming is based on goals and ability and would take place twice a week. Included with your small group training would be participation in large group training in the afternoon two times a week and an unlimited group fitness pass for the quarter.
