I was responsible for...
Train clients from ages 5 through 18 years old, work with different sports teams, write and implement training programs, maintain facility, fill paperwork, answer phones, set up, tear down and organize equipment, supervise children while parents participate in programs and assist customers with any needs.

I accomplished...
Seeing results from the training program I created and implemented with my clients and being told they would follow me after my internship.

I learned...
Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is the perfect athlete so have patience to take time to teach a client how to have proper forms and work with them over time until they have mastered the exercise.

Advice for others...
Put yourself in uncomfortable situations, always come prepared and have a drive to learn and better yourself so you may better others.
