I was responsible for...
Train individual clients, lead group fitness classes, make sure gym is clean, and maintenance of equipment.

I accomplished...
I successfully trained multiple clients of which all had very different goals.

I learned...
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.
