My responsibilities included shadowing and leading group exercise classes. Lead each class through a warm up. Providing helpful and motivating ques. General cleaning and upkeep duties.


My greatest accomplishment was being able to help new lifters with no prior experience learn new movements and proper form.

Learning experience

The greatest lesson I learned is that everyone learns and improves at their own pace. Being able to feel someone out and what style of motivation works best.

What advice would you give?

Ask as many questions that you can. Be a sponge and soak up all you can.
