Personal Trainers will develop an individualized fitness program and teach you the best way to perform each exercise. This gives you a chance to challenge yourself and get the most out of your workout. Training is available for individuals or groups.

There are many benefits to working with a personal trainer:

  • Maximize your time with effective and efficient workouts.
  • Improve performance for sports or races.
  • Decrease injury risks or recover more quickly with post-rehab training.
  • Add variety to your exercise program to stay motivated.
  • Gain a trusted resource for accurate and individualized fitness information.

A healthy life doesn't just require physical activity, it is also dependent on healthy eating.

To determine if you are on the right path, schedule a meeting (60 minutes) with a Registered Dietitian. Meetings can be at the Ray or virtual. Whether you are looking to manage your weight or want to ensure you are eating properly for optimal performance, a session with one of our Registered Dietitians can help!

Your first step is to track what you eat for three days (including at least one weekend day) in a dietary recall log that will be evaluated by a dietitian. After discussing your goals, you will work with the dietitian to create an action plan for healthy eating and maximum performance.


Want to get started with a Personal Trainer from home, but don’t know where to purchase quality equipment? DePaul Campus Recreation has partnered with Perform Better to get you the small equipment you need for a great workout.

You will receive 10% off all purchases.

If you are interested in purchasing equipment, please email Danielle Arens for the next steps.

Our service providers are not simply “nutritionists,” they are Registered Dietitians (RD). RDs may call themselves “nutritionists,” but not all nutritionists are dietitians! The RD is the food and nutrition expert who has acquired a nutrition-related degree, passed a national exam, and completed a supervised practice program. Our dietitians are available to help you improve your eating habits for weight management, disease prevention & management, and maximize sport performance.
