I accomplished...
Getting hired on as a performance coach

I learned...
Training athletes is very different from just being a personal trainer. There are a ton of different training methods when training athletes and it is important to not only know how to perform the exercises yourself, but also know why the athletes are doing them.

Advice for others...
Come in everyday and be excited to learn something new. Try to be a sponge and learn and experience as much as possible.
