Personal Training

Philadelphia University Fitness and Wellness

Our mission:

To offer staff and students an opportunity to improve their physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual wellness. Our new and improved personal training program provides students and staff with valuable information and exercises to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle, while living and working to their full potential. We do so by offering a variety of courses and programs to help meet the needs of individuals with diverse interests and abilities.


 Check out what our new personal training program will offer:

To better accommodate more students, faculty and staff, we have revamped our personal training program. We will no longer be providing single, buddy, and group trainings. However, we will be designing individual programs and provide guidance to reach your goals.

- Personal consultation to design a workout that best fits your goals.

- Full body composition screenings for all participants when beginning training as well as after to record progress made.*

- Optional "Core Muscle Strength and Stability Test" prior to training and again later if desired to track progress. *

- Diet and nutrition guidance.

- A full explanation and walkthrough of your workout routine.


*Upon Request

The Philadelphia University Fitness Center offers Personal Programs to all students and staff for free. Contact Maty Brennan brennanm@philau.edu to schedule your consultation and walk you through a personally designed program.  


Additional Services:

Interested in knowing your body fat percentage, body weight, or body measurements?

One of our certified personal trainers will complete a Fitness Assessment Data Sheet on the first day of training.  There are sections you will be able to list your fitness goals, types of training desired, upper body muscular endurance testing, flexibility and cardio-testing.

The trainers will use skinfold calipers to determine body fat percentage, measuring tape to find body measurements, and a digital scale for weight. The trainers will assess the results to identify your strengths and weaknesses and offer suggestions to help. This should get done about once a month.
