I was responsible for...
Train and oversee clients in the fitness center. Supervise the fitness center (office work, copy and insert data into the computer, answer phone calls, file paperwork etc.). Work sports camps and clinics.

I accomplished...
I think my greatest accomplishment from this experience is helping many clients reach their fitness goals and leading my own fitness class.

I learned...
I think the greatest lesson I've learned is the importance of responsibility and communication in the workplace. Being responsible for other workers close to my age was definitely a great learning experience.

Advice for others...
