I was responsible for...
I lead group fitness bootcamp classes. During each class I would lead a 5-7 minute warm up, demonstration of all exercises performed, 5 minute cool down, and motivate clients throughout class. I was an accountability coach throughout different challenges that happened during my internship. I made membership calls and cleaned the gym.

I accomplished...
At the end of my internship I was able to secure a full time job with Elite Edge Gym at another location.

I learned...
I loved being able to work with people of all sorts. I learned that not everybody is the same and you have to connect with others in certain ways. You can't only have one thing to say to the entire class.

Advice for others...
Experience with talking to others will help you tremendously during your internship as a lot of group fitness instruction is connecting with the class and making the atmosphere the best you can.
