I worked as a program assistant and helped manage the personal training program. I also worked as both a personal trainer and group fitness instructor throughout the semester.


I designed and conducted an outreach project with a residence hall on campus in which we provided health and wellness services to an under-served community.

Learning experience

Exercise brings people together!

What advice would you give?

For anyone looking to conduct their internship with Rec Services, I highly recommend you reach out to Nora Hudson or Muriel Hyndman and start working as a personal trainer or group fitness instructor beforehand! Everything we learn in our exercise science classes can be applied to working as a PT or GFI and it will help you both in your studies and future career!
