I was responsible for...
My company (HealthFitnesss) was contracted out by Boston Scientific to run their employee wellness program at their on-site fitness center. My responsibilities included designing and training clients one-on-one, leading group exercise classes, administering fitness assessments, administering body composition tests, health incentive programming, health promotion, facility maintenance, public speaking, event management, and internal marketing.

I accomplished...
I would say either teaching a handful of a wide range of fitness classes every week. As well as designing, implementing, and running my own health incentive program for our members.

I learned...
How to better market myself, how to strategically plan my day-to-day schedule, and effective ways for health promotion.

Advice for others...
This was a great internship opportunity! I really enjoyed it because you have so many different responsibilities, instead of a focus on one specific thing (i.e. personal training, group exercise), and every week was different!
