Personal Training

The Personal Training department’s mission is to empower, educate and enhance the lives of the people in our community through individualized fitness programming. Personal Training has two main functions; personal training and health evaluations. Additionally, this department provides leadership for special sports programs, like triathlon and marathon programs. This group also offers one-on-one Pilates Reformer sessions for members and guests. Personal training is available to all members, but personal training fees are not included in the basic membership fees. Packages and fees are detailed in the personal training brochure.

Dividend Program for Lifestyle Enhancement Wellness Programs


Individuals dealing with metabolic, orthopedic, neuromuscular issues, or a combination of medical challenges can feel comfortable exercising with a highly educated trainer who will communicate with the clinical client’s personal physician or therapist. Clinical training is meant to be a “step-down” from rehab services into independent exercise or regular personal training.

Thank you for choosing the UNC Wellness Centers for your personal training!  We would like to thank you for every 24 sessions (training or massage) you use, by giving you a complimentary service.  Please choose the service you would like from the list below and let your trainer or therapist know your choice:

  • 60-minute hour massage
  • 60-minute training session
  • One nutrition counseling or Resting Metabolic Rate test

You will have 3 months to use your complimentary service.  It is not transferable and will disappear from your account if unused after 3 months, so schedule it soon!

Testimonials

 “I have been working with Karla in Parkinson’s classes for a few years.  She has also been my personal trainer for a few months.  In both cases, Karla has been great to work with.  For a client, motivation is often the most difficult part.  Karla has the ability to move clients from “needing” to “exercise” to wanting to exercise.” – Larry D.

“My fitness journey began when I was almost 60 years old and in an orthopedic boot.  I was a 5-6 times a week tennis player who had torn a tendon and fractured a bone in my ankle.  I decided instead of sitting around for 5 weeks, I would start working with a personal trainer at the UNC Wellness Center.  I had been a member for almost 3 years and rarely went. Beth Blount, my personal trainer is incredible – she personalized my workouts to meet my needs even while in a boot.  We worked on strength training, stretching, and core exercises — areas I had never focused on.  She has challenged and encouraged me to try things that I never imagined I could do.   I am now out of the boot and still working with Beth.  She has given me the confidence and knowledge to work out at the center on days we are not together.   Beth makes working out fun and something I look forward to!”  – Diane S.
