I was responsible for...
Shadow trainers during group/private sessions. Create emails to send out to clients(educational). Assist with weigh-ins/ body fat during challenges. Screen clients using FMS. Assist with training, set-up/ teardown. Attend all staff meetings, lead groups when ready.

I will never forget...
When helping individuals on the resistance training side of things, realizing how much progress they have made, and assisting them with their form, they become amazed at how much more comfortable the lift feels(typically Barbell squat, and deadlift)

Advice for others...
If you have any interest in functional fitness, I would definitely recommend shooting Jeff an email, or seeing if you could come shadow to see what Sure Fire is about.
