When you work with a Nautilus personal trainer, you'll benefit from a personal training program that's custom-built with your goals in mind!

Members or non-members can sign up for a Free Fitness Evaluation at the front desk. A trainer will contact you to set up an appointment for your assessment. During your assessment you will gain better understanding of what it's like to work with a personal trainer. The trainer will discuss your goals and what you want to gain from having a Personal Trainer.
