Each participant will receive an initial consultation and fitness assessment to figure out the best way to start and acquire baseline fitness data.

Important Program Information
Clients must complete their 4 exercise sessions within 5 weeks of their first initial consultation with an exercise programmer. One session per week is recommended to stay on track and ensure enough time to complete the program in case you become ill or need to cancel. Clients have one week from registration to schedule their initial consultation.
If a client wants to continue the program after their set of 4 sessions has been completed, they will rotate to the back of the waitlist. If there is no one in front of them, they can continue with the next set of 4 sessions. The initial consultation is not included with the continuation program.
If a client schedules a meeting with an exercise programmer, they must attend or cancel at least 6 hours before the scheduled appointment time. One reschedule is allowed per package. Failure to do so will result in the loss of one of the client sessions with no refund. Clients will also lose their sessions if they do not complete the program within the allotted time frame (5 weeks). No refund will be given.
***The exercise programmers are not certified personal trainers. The programmers have completed almost all of their Kinesiology requirements including all classes needed to pass the personal trainer certification exam. They are one semester short of graduating from the Kinesiology Program.
All programmers have previously worked with one on one clients or a small group of clients developing exercise programs under the supervision of qualified staff. Please know that this program does not prescribe exercise. Fit4Life is designed to have clients work with a programmer to help fine-tune skills or give ideas/instruction to develop a program that fits client needs***
