For my internship, I was a group fitness instructor, teaching 6 classes a week, as well as a personal trainer. Along with these roles, I was in tasked with several behind the scenes responsibilities. I tracked participation/no shows to fitness classes, helped organize events, created flyers for events or promotions, and helped with any other tasks needed.


My greatest accomplishment during my internship was getting growing in a leadership role where I got to be in a position to be in charge of promotions and communication with other employees.

Learning experience

I learned how to be confident in my knowledge of exercise and leadership skills. Along with that, I gained so much more of an understanding in what it takes to run an fitness program.

What advice would you give?

Be confident in what you know! You're given everything you need to be successful in the exercise field, so don't be afraid to speak up and share your knowledge and ideas!
