Student Recreation and Wellness Center

Meet the Trainers

Personal trainers at the SRWC are students employed by Campus Recreational Services. If you are interested in the fitness industry or becoming a personal trainer, our Fitness Instructor Training Workshop is a great start!

Level 1

Level 1 personal trainers are UNLV students who complete a 16-week in-house Personal Training Certificate through the UNLV Campus Recreational Services department. These trainers complete a series of training modules and are tested on their knowledge of exercise science, fitness assessment, nutrition, exercise programming and instructional techniques.

Level 2

In addition to the Level 1 experience, Level 2 personal trainers are UNLV students who hold a national Personal Training Certification through an accredited organization (ACE, ACSM, NSCA, CSCS, AFAA).
