All packages begin with a fitness assessment consisting of body composition, flexibility, muscular strength and cardiovascular endurance components. A consultation to determine needs and goals will follow the assessment. Sessions are one hour.

All sessions/packages are non-refundable except in cases of health issues with doctor's note prohibiting physical activity. Packages purchased during the academic year must be used by the end of the spring semester of the same academic year, or remaining sessions will be forfeited.

Need help learning how to properly use and adjust all equipment with the guidance of a personal trainer? All students, faculty, and staff are able to schedule a free (ONE-time only) meeting with a McNiff Fitness Center Personal Trainer, where you will be given a guided "tour" of all machines, learning proper adjustment and technique. You must schedule a time at the McNiff Front Desk.

Meet Our Trainers

Branden Boston 

International Sports Sciences Association Personal Trainer
Major: Philosophy

"The ability of the human mind to push the body beyond its limits never ceases to amaze me. I made a lifelong commitment towards a healthier version of myself when I was 16 years old after being tired of my low energy levels and feeling inadequate when playing sports with my disciplined friends and peers. Though making simple adjustments to my eating habits and daily exercise routines, I felt completely transformed in a matter of months and felt a certain drive to share that transformation with the world around me. I brought that optimism with me to the men's and women's Bodybuilding team which I am now the president, and looking forward to helping any genuinely passionate individual trying to bring healthy changes in their life through weight Training."

Joel Metzger 

National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer
Major: Exercise Science

"I served in the United States Navy from 2007-2011. It was during that time that I developed an acute passion for physical fitness. As my knowledge grew, I found myself helping fellow shipmates. Upon getting an honorable discharge out of the service, my predisposition to become a personal trainer was top priority. I received my certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I am now at UT in a strong pursuit of a bachelor's degree in exercise science emphasizing athletic training. I am confident I have the capability to train and get anyone to their specific goals with a constantly expanding, diversified knowledge of training techniques. I look forward to meeting you and am excited to guide you into your pursuit of excellence."
