I was responsible for...
Responsibilities as an Intern: at Around The Clock Fitness range from Small group training, group exercises, sales training, club pride, follow up phone calls, customer service, helping with demos, lead generation, member and equipment orientation, possible research projects, on/off site promotions, and attend training meetings. Help with clients who are not sure they want to do personal training yet and kind of introduce them to what a personal trainer could help with them because ATC does this neat thing when a member signs up for a membership they offer one free personal training session and a free In Body Test. work all over the gym from the main floor to group fitness room for classes, the front desk, and managers office to see the business side of the gym.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment would be seeing the look on my clients face after doing the In-Body knowing they lost weight and put on muscle.

I learned...
That no matter what you're doing always be professional at it, because I was training a friend and some people asked to be trained.

Advice for others...
You'll get a lot out of your internship, if you put a lot of effort into it.
