Lindenwood students are looking for faculty or staff members interested in getting help getting into shape.

A training program lasting about nine weeks during the spring semester will pair seniors majoring in exercise science with clients.

Clients will get one-on-one personal training and must complete two and a half hours per week for the duration of the training program. The program time and location are flexible and will be decided by both the client and student-trainer.

The program was first implemented in the fall semester of 2009 by Betsy Feutz, director of strength and conditioning at Lindenwood. It often has between 20-35 clients per fall and spring semester.

“I truly believe this is a valuable program for both our Exercise Science students and faculty/staff members,” Feutz said. “It’s a great opportunity for our students to learn and grow as young professionals in a safe environment, and it also provides an opportunity for the LU community to have access to safe and effective health and fitness programs free of charge.”

For more information, or to sign up for the program, contact Feutz by phone at  636-441-6448 or by email at [email protected].
