Personal Training Procedures

Refer to the information below for next steps and FAQs regarding your Personal Training Session. Please also review our training policies HERE.

First Day:

  • All sessions should be paid for ahead of time on your ActiveNet oneline account.
  • We suggest you arrive early on the first day, especially if this is your first time on Georgetown’s campus. 
  • When you arrive at Campus Recreation to Yates Field House, please let the front desk know you are here for a “Personal Training Session.” Your trainer will also meet you at the front desk. 
  • Packages will expire 6 months after the date of purchase.


Monday-Saturday: All members, guests, and visitors driving to campus should park in the Southwest Quadrangle parking garage. From the garage, Yates Field House is a short walk up the hill between Thompson Athletic Center and Cooper Field. Hourly parking rate is $5/hr.

Sundays: Parking is free in all University garages on Sundays. If you are driving, you can enter campus from Canal Road or Entrance #4 on Reservoir Road. We recommend using the free parking at the Leavey Center Parking Garage. Turn onto the road between Leavey Center and the Hariri Building (Business School) off West Rd – the garage will be signed and to the left.

The parking lot opposite the Field House (Lot Y) is reserved for handicapped members with a valid parking pass issued by OTM, and deliveries. Vehicles illegally parked will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.  For questions or further details about parking on campus, contact the Office of Transportation Management at (202) 687-4372.

Give yourself more time as it is about a 5-minute walk up the hill to the Field House.

Trainers will be waiting at the front desk, 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the session.

Locker rooms are located on the second floor of Yates Field House. Day lockers are available throughout the locker room. Users may place their own lock on a day locker, but locks must be removed after the session. You can check more details regarding Locker Rental & Towel Service.

Sessions last approximately 1-hour in duration, unless otherwise noted by the Personal Trainer.

If cancellation is necessary, we ask that you call/e-mail your Personal Trainer directly NO LESS than 24 hours in advance. If your personal trainer isn’t notified within this time frame, this session will be deducted from the session(s) you purchased. In this case, you will receive an e-mail from your Personal Trainer stating this deduction.

We understand that unexpected events and circumstances may arise and will evaluate on a case by case basis; however, giving your trainer as much lead time as you can is important.  We value fellow students, members, and staff and strive to be respectful and considerate of their time and schedules. Additionally, first-time cancellations/no-shows may be waived and will be up to the discretion of the trainer and/or Assistant Director of Fitness & Wellness.
