Participate & teach group exercise classes, Observe & perform fitness services (Wellness consultations & Inbody tests) Shadow trainers & take on clients when a nationally accredited certification was obtained


This internship gave me the confidence to teach many different classes & form my own clientele. I got to work closely with specific youth athletes (tennis and golf) and create fitness programs geared towards those sports.

Learning experience

The biggest lesson I learned is that being able to be flexible is key. Having an internship during COVID-19 faced me with a lot of changes and some difficulties, but learning how to adapt to those changes and keep an open mind is what got us through it.

What advice would you give?

Be open and willing to accept new challenges that come your way and do not be afraid to ask for help! Some things aren't for everyone but you will never know unless you try.
