Getting started with personal training

Step 1- Schedule Your Evaluation

  • Contact Recreation Program Manager, Renita Folkers at 815-234-6492 or email rfolkers@byronparks.org to discuss trainer availability.
  • A referral will be made to the trainer to schedule a one-hour evaluation.

Step 2 - One-Hour Evaluation

  • The one-hour evaluation offers your trainer an opportunity to get to know you so your trainer can design a workout plan especially for you.
  • Discuss your likes/dislikes of working out.
  • Review your health history.
  • Set realistic and attainable goals.

Step 3 - Attending Training Sessions

  • Once the one-hour evaluation has been completed, you can choose to register for 1 session, 5 sessions, or 10 sessions.
  • Each personal training session is one hour.
  • A Personal Training Pass will be provided upon registration.
  • Participants must "check in" prior to each training session by swiping their pass at the front desk.
  • The personal trainer and client will work together to schedule future session dates.

Jamie Buck - "Personal Training for Your Entire Family"
"I have been married for 25 years, am the mother to two sons, a Cleveland Clinic certified Nutrition Coach, a Certified Personal Trainer, and a runner! I have worked in the fitness industry as a business owner since 2006. I was born with Asthma and allergies and was told by doctors that I would never be an athlete and may not be able to participate in gym class. Thankfully, I chose to defy the odds and made exercise a priority in my life. I ended up being a 3 sport athlete in high school and remained active and physically fit through college. I've since completed 8 Half Marathons and plan to do at least 2 more this year! In fact, fitness is a way of life for me and I believe it should be enjoyable enough to sustain. I really enjoy helping people lose weight, gain confidence, gain strength, and lead happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives. I look forward to motivating individuals to take their fitness routines to new levels through personalized instruction, group exercise, guidance, and support so results are seen and felt! I design workouts that are customized to the individual based on fitness level and goals. I am also available for nutritional coaching. You can't out-exercise a poor diet!"
