I was responsible for...
Design and implement a program for personal training clients that are a wide age variety according to their goals and abilities. Design and implement a program for sports performance athletes of a wide range of age and ability based on their goals. Lead and participate in the group fitness classes. Motivate all clients to work hard and do well, as well as developing a positive rapport. Maintain a professional manner with clients and coworkers.
The greatest accomplishment I had during my internship was meeting the clients goals. I helped the sports performance athletes get quicker and jump higher. These athletes were great to work with and we both looked forward to the next session.
The greatest lesson I had was that there are many more things available to you than you have previously been exposed to. Sometimes things seem "cookie cutter", but there are many different ways to do things.
Advice for others...
My advice is that not everything comes from where you expect it. Look outside the box for your internships and future employment.
