Virtual Training

World traveler? Busy parent? Not local to Athens, Ohio? Whatever your reason, Virtual training can be a convenient solution to prioritizing your wellbeing no matter where you are. 

WellWorks began offering virtual training in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our trainers and clients loved it so much, we decided to continue offering this convenient service. 

What to expect: Check out the video above to get a feel for what the virtual training experience is like. The trainer will send you a link to a virtual meeting. You'll log in at the time of your appointment and your trainer will guide you through your sequence for the day. 

Equipment needed: To fully participate in virtual personal training, clients will need access to a computer/phone with a web cam and internet. Trainers can incorporate any home gym equipment you may have on hand. Though, if you have no equipment, our trainers can successfully train you utilizing all bodyweight movements. 

Cost: $20 for 30 minutes or $30 for 60 minutes. 

Open to all Membership Types: Virtual training is available to Virtual Members and Facility Members.

We Want Your Feedback

In order to better improve our personal training services, we seek insight of participants to re-evaluate and adjust the program for future members participating in personal training. With this information, the professional staff at WellWorks could create new opportunities for students to learn new customer service skills, how to improve self-efficacy, and essentials of effective face-to-face communication. Your honest responses to the questions would be greatly appreciated.

Fitness Assessments are Now Available!

Looking to start an exercise program, but don’t know where to begin? Or are you simply curious where you stand as it relates to your overall physical health? A fitness assessment can be a great way to monitor and assess your ability as it relates to aerobic fitness, strength, and flexibility.  The assessment consists of the five components of fitness: body composition (circumference measurements and bioelectrical impedance), muscular strength (push-ups, bodyweight squats, and sit ups/curl ups), flexibility (sit and reach), and cardiovascular endurance (1 mile walk, 1.5-mile run, or 3-minute step test). This will be a 60-minute consultation with the WellWorks Fitness Coordinator or a Personal Training Graduate Student.

Not located on the Athens campus? That's ok! We now have a virtual assessment available!

Must have an active Virtual or Facility WellWorks Membership to participate. 

Cost: $25
