Personal Training Accordion

RIT personal trainers are the only trainers authorized to provide personal training services within our facilities. There are two programs that offer this type of service to the RIT community: Wellness Education and Better Me.

Wellness Education is an RIT student education program and provides a "Personal Training" course (1109-014) as part of the Fitness discipline. Students can register using SIS, and the course follows the academic schedule. This course can be used toward the Wellness graduation requirement. For more information on the Personal Training course, contact Michelle Schrouder.

Better Me is an RIT employee wellness program; however, they also work with retirees and alumni. Their personal training services are available at any time throughout the year. For more information, visit their website.

Nutrition Education (free) Accordion

Nutrition is a very important part of our well-being. Student Health offers free nutrition advice in order to promote and enhance the connection between proper nutrition and fitness. Fourth-year RIT Nutrition Management students will help you learn how to make healthier food choices, customize your diet, create healthy goals, or guide you to learn more about nutrition.

Please contact Kelly Reed for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Children's Swim Program Accordion

This one-on-one instruction program is designed for children and grandchildren of RIT faculty, staff, retirees, students and alumni with a current Recreation membership.
