I was responsible for...
During this internship, I was responsible for attending team meetings, attending and helping with events, facility management, completing research on benefits of indoor cycling and building relationships with clients to help them reach their fitness goals.
My greatest accomplishment from my experience was that I was able to get outside of my comfort zone and apply what I have learned through the Kinesiology department to a real world scenario.
From my experience as an intern, I learned a lot about myself as an employee and as a leader in the fitness setting. I learned that being well prepared and having confidence go hand in hand and are essential for being successful.
Advice for others...
Advice I would give future students is to apply yourself as much as possible. The amount of experience and knowledge you get from your internship is up to you. The more practice you get, the more comfortable and confident you will be. This will benefit you and prepare you for your professional career.
