I was responsible for...
I learned how to correctly teach CrossFit movements,I also taught kids classes where I taught them the movements and then showed them how to to the WOD. I worked with the athletes and XL kids by teaching them the agility workouts and going through their lifts with them. I coached adults as well through the WOD and I made sure equipment was clean and working properly
Becoming more confident in myself while teaching movements to classes and helping correct their form.
There are many ways to get people to move, but leaning how to respectfully show them things and teach them movements was a big lesson I learned
Advice for others...
Try to get out of your comfort zone by interning at a place you normally wouldn't. I had never done CrossFit before interning here but I learned so much from these coaches and it opened my eyes to a whole other world of fitness.
