All services can be purchased anytime throughout the year at the Front Desk of the Recreation Center.  With registration and payment you will receive a personal health questionnaire to fill out.  Clients may indicate a preferred trainer or a preferred trainer gender at registration.  Every effort will be made to accommodate requests, however they cannot be guaranteed.  Assignments are based on client goals, fitness levels and schedules.  After the questionnaire is completed and returned, it will take approximately five business days to process your information.  A certified personal trainer will contact you directly to schedule your first appointment.  Your trainer will e-mail you pre-testing instructions at least 24 hours prior to your assessment.

Cancellation policy - If a client wishes to cancel an appointment they must contact their trainer directly, at least 24 hours prior to their appointment. Failure to do so will result in a lost session.

Late policy - Trainers are required to wait 15 minutes for registered clients. If after 15 minutes the client has not contacted the trainer directly or through a staff member of Campus Recreation, the trainer may choose to reschedule the appointment, but is not required to do so. Sessions that begin late due to the late arrival of a registered client will end at the originally scheduled time.

Group Training Cancellation policy - If one client cancels within 24 hours of a scheduled group session or simply does not show, the session may continue with the remaining client(s). The session will still count toward the package balance for each of the clients.

Expiration policy - All services must be completed within one (1) calendar year of the service purchase.

Refund policy - Clients wishing to obtain a refund must request so in person. Full refunds are considered only during the first seven (7) calendar days of membership. Thereafter, applications for refunds will be considered for the following reasons, provided proof is also submitted: medical or departure/withdrawal from Binghamton University. Refunds will be prorated if services have begun in the first 7 days (consultation/assessment, sessions etc.).A $20 processing fee will be assessed for these refunds.
