Personal Training

“I used to watch YouTube videos and do aerobic exercises on my own. My personal training sessions with Isabelle taught me that I’m capable of weight lifting and doing things I thought took a lot of strength! My personal training sessions makes me more confident and lets me know that I can make progress if I put in the effort!”

– Maggie, 3rd Year Psychology Student

Success Story: Meet Juan

Juan was looking for a place to stay healthy while balancing the demands of teaching and writing a textbook. Eight years later, and Juan is still an avid member of the Personal Training Program at UBC Recreation.

“For me, exercise has never been about losing weight or looking better, it has always been about keeping healthy, both physically and mentally.” – Juan
