I was responsible for...
Monitoring of clients, front desk work, personal training work with exercise program, learned the Polar Body Age fitness assessment, general cleaning of machines on exercise floor and around workplace area and took charge of a wellness challenge which was posted on the bulletin board inside the facility.

I accomplished...
My biggest accomplishment to me was taking charge of a challenge in which I was just helping with but took matters into my own hands and stayed on top of getting clients information each week and posting updated information within the challenge as well.

I learned...
One of my greatest lessons was that I learned that you can never be too safe while working in a facility. No matter how much you try to do to ensure safety within the workplace, there's always room for improvement.

Advice for others...
My advice would be to get yourself out there and get to know people and don't sell yourself short. Show up everyday looking forward to learning something new or meeting someone new. Step outside of your comfort zone like I did and you will be much more relaxed and comfortable working when doing so.
