Personal Training

With the guidance of one of our nationally certified personal trainers, you can:

  • Learn new exercises and skills
  • Achieve your fitness and weight loss goals quicker than on your own
  • Maintain consistency and accountability
  • Continually challenge your muscles

Do I have to train with a personal trainer every week to get results?

This depends on your individual goals and the amount of time in which you want to achieve those goals. Some clients will consistently train weekly with a personal trainer while others will train for a few weeks, develop a routine, and then meet with them periodically for changes.


Personal Training

Work with a nationally certified personal trainer on the fitness floor or our Training Studio to customize a safe and effective program to meet your goals. The session will involve individual attention and provide you with expert advice on an effective workout. Our trainers are capable of training clients at any level; qualified in specialty areas such as athletic performance, obesity, heart disease, arthritis or other challenges. We also work with clients that have various health restrictions and can help with functional exercise, which is customized to facilitate greater ease in the life of a given individual. Must be at least 14 years of age to participate in the Personal Training Program. To start training, pick up a Personal Training Request and Health History form at the Pavilion Fitness front desk or download below. For more information, visit our FAQs section or contact the Fitness Coordinator 847.690.1175.

Partner Training

Do you have someone you enjoy working out with but find that you chat more than you workout? Then maybe having a trainer work with you and your partner/spouse/friend will help keep you on track. We don’t take the fun out of it, we create more of it! Talk to one of our trainers about it.

Small Group Training

Small group training is simply the extension of standard one-on-one personal training to a small group. The trainer still provides personalization to the member while focusing on a common workout and goals of the group. The benefit of working with the small group is the same group works together, forms camaraderie, motivation and encouragement.
