The personal trainers at the Liberty Community Center (LCC) excel at helping you achieve the results you want. Our staff is as diverse as our membership. We'll pair you up with a trainer who matches your needs.
Private Personal Training
Training 1-on-1 with a nationally certified Personal Trainer will help keep you accountable and provide the motivation and encouragement you need to get started on your fitness goals! Purchase these one hour sessions in packages of 1, 4, 8 or 16 sessions. These session packs are sure to add variety to your current fitness plan!
Semi- Private Personal Training
Life is always more fun in pairs! Participants in two-on-one sessions should have similar fitness goals for the trainer to develop a comprehensive program. Semi-private training allows for additional accountability and motivation to stay on track and obtain your goals.
Group Personal Training
More successful working as a team? Small group personal training could be just what you need! Four teammates will work out, motivate and encourage each other in a 6-week group training package.

Health & Wellness + University of Kansas Alzheimer's Disease Research Center
Could Exercise Improve Brain Health in Older Adults? You can be a part of the answer by participating in a Combined Exercise Trial (COMET study) with University of Kansas Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. Researchers are seeking males, ages 65 to 80, who do not currently exercise to participate in the clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health. COMET is the largest study of its kind to specifically compare aerobic activity, strength training or a combination of both aerobic and strength training while looking at cognition in older adults. Participation in the study includes a paid gym membership. Most exercise sessions will take place at the Liberty Community Center or a YMCA location.
