Some of the daily tasks that I was able to do included hands on coaching experience, daily facility operations (set up, tear down, maintenance), and experience with and exposure to performance technology.


My greatest accomplishment during my internship experience was being able to be a role model to young girls who are also interested in the strength and conditioning field. Also, being able to help teach young athletes lifting techniques they will use in the future.

Learning experience

One of the greatest lessons I learned from my experience was learning how to communicate with students of different ages. Learning what type of coaching style each student needs is important to help them succeed in what they are doing.

What advice would you give?

The advice I would give to future students would be to have confidence in yourself, ask questions, take all opportunities that are given, and don't be afraid to fail!
