I was responsible for...
I am in charge of training individuals, advising on exercise, nutrition, and overall health, administering health assessments, and helping people reach their health and fitness goals.

I accomplished...
I was able to double my sales in my second month and fill up my week with an average of 20 paid hours.

I learned...
I've had a ton of business experience with sales, but the greatest lesson I've learned is to care for people and provide them with value. Customer service will turn into sales.

Advice for others...
Don't settle for an internship you don't think you'll get the best experience at. Shoot for above and beyond your expectations.
