I was responsible for...
Here at Core Blend as an intern you have many responsibilities. These consist of learning, programming, training, coaching, observing, marketing, managing, and cleaning. With 1 on 1 hands on experience it was easy to catch on and learn how to be a great trainer.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment from my experience is having multiple of my high school athletes reach their goals and become leaders and the leader board at the gym.

I learned...
My greatest lessons learned are mostly from the business side. There was a lot for me to learn about the business side of running a private gym and this helped me realize the difficulties of the tasks. Another lesson learned was being able to adapt and train various skilled clients.

Advice for others...
My advice for students is to be open minded when entering any internship program. If you are interested in Core Blend and want the 1 on 1 hands on training, this is the place for you. There is lots of growth and learning ability at this facility.
