I was responsible for...
Train individual clients, lead group fitness classes, make sure gym is clean, and maintenance of equipment.
I successfully trained multiple clients of which all had very different goals.
The most valuable learning experience was when one of the clients had an illness that really limited the exercises we could perform. I learned that you have to always be able to adjust your plan and face each new challenge with a positive attitude.
I will never forget...
Helping members reach their goals every single day, and having the ability to help change an individual's life.
Advice for others...
Have a positive attitude every day no matter what challenges you may face. And build as many relationships as you can during the internship.
I wanted this experience because...
I wanted to know if this profession was something that I wanted to keep pursuing.
