I was responsible for daily duties of helping to clean the gym, respond to emails from members, reach out to potential members, and respond to any voicemails that we may have. I also took charge in designing some of our promotional flyers, emails, and social media posts. During my internship I was also given the opportunity to shadow, then eventually lead clients in workouts that I made specifically for them.
My greatest accomplishment was programming exercises for various clients that they both enjoyed, and claimed that it helped them make progress with limitations they have.
I think the greatest thing I learned was the low level of knowledge that most individuals start out with. Whether it be about exercise in general, or making the mind-muscle connection to perform a exercise correctly.
What advice would you give?
Don't be afraid to strike up a conversation, you never know who you will meet and who of those people may be able to help you along in your future.
