My responsibilities included: - Shadowing the Fitness Manager - Leading exercise sessions - Collaborating with the Fitness Manager to create a summer fitness challenge for gym members - General upkeep of the facility

Learning experience

The greatest lessons I learned were the value of interpersonal communication and critical thinking.

What advice would you give?

Seriously take time to consider your education and the implications it may have on your future. I decided this summer that I want to continue my education at graduate school after previously thinking I just wanted a bachelor's in exercise science. You can do anything you put your mind to!
