Trainer encouraging woman to lift weightsReceive a complimentary membership to the Toldo Lancer Centre with the purchase of any personal training package.

Personal training available through Lancer Recreation

Spring is in the air and summer is right around the corner — time for faculty and staff to get feeling their best, and Lancer Recreation is ready to help.

“Come meet one of our wonderful personal trainers at the new Toldo Lancer Centre for a free consultation,” says Mike McMahon, assistant fitness and sport conditioning co-ordinator. “You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to improve your health and wellness.”

Signing up for a personal training package also entitles clients to receive free access to the Toldo Lancer Centre and Forge Fitness Centre.

McMahon points to testimonials from UWindsor staff members.

“Being strong is amazing,” says Camille Armour, senior development officer for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. “I had lived with the misconception that weight training makes you bulk up. Personal training helped dispel that thinking. Diet is eating right for your body, not a punishment.”

Oliga Tserakhava, talent retention co-ordinator in the Department of Human Resources, says she toyed with the idea of personal training but had always felt intimidated.

“After a few sessions, it was clear to me that I was just too afraid to try it before. After a couple of weeks of my training, I realized that I was getting excited to hit the gym and especially the weights,” she says. “I began to see results and it was just fun seeing myself progressing and getting stronger.”

McMahon invites those interested in becoming the best version of themselves to email him for details on booking personal training at
