We’ll Get You Started

To help get you started on the right foot, all members joining under one of the Standard Membership plans will be provided with a complimentary Health Evaluation, Nutrition Evaluation, and Fitness Equipment Orientation. These benefits are often most useful when completed during the first month of your membership, but each member can determine when these assessments and orientation will be most productive as there is no expiration date on these benefits.

Personal Training Consultation

This 30-minute consultation is led by a certified Personal Trainer. The Trainer will discuss with the new member what they are currently doing for fitness, their pertinent medical history that could affect their exercise plan, and their fitness goals. The Trainer will provide recommendations of what the member can do to get a healthy start on their goals at UNC Wellness Centers. This consultation can be done in person or by phone.

Appointments are scheduled at the Front Desk where you can view available appointment days and times.

Nutrition Assessment

The Nutrition Assessment is led by a Registered Dietitian and lasts approximately thirty minutes. The dietitian will collect basic information about the member’s current nutritional habits and goals, and will make a brief assessment. The member will receive personalized nutritional pointers, plus information about relevant nutritional services offered at UNC Wellness Centers.

Appointments are scheduled at the Front Desk where you can view available appointment days and times.

Equipment Orientation

All members, including Student and One-Month members, should go through an Equipment Orientation. This one-on-one orientation is led by a Fitness Instructor and lasts approximately one hour. Members will learn about the various strength and cardiovascular equipment and its use with the FitLinxx Network System. Although the Equipment Orientation is not a Personal Training session, it is an overview and opportunity to learn about the UNC Wellness Centers’ fitness spaces and equipment. We strongly encourage all members to participate in the orientation.

A Fitness Instructor can assist you with scheduling your Equipment Orientation at the Fitness Desk or by calling the Front Desk.
