I was responsible for...
I was responsible for providing health and wellness advice to employees through lunch presentations and every day interactions in the fitness center. I demonstrated various exercise techniques, and personal trained clients towards their goals. I was also responsible for conducting group exercises courses biweekly, and assisting my supervisor with clerical tasks in my spare time.

I accomplished...
Helping my first client recover from a leg injury to compete in and win a marathon this past November. Seeing his improvement and success helped me decide to pursue physical therapy.

I learned...
Push yourself. Its good to get out of your comfort zone and try a new experience.

Advice for others...
Ask questions. Learn as much as you possible can from everyone willing to teach you, and you will always get the most from your experience.

Submit your experience!
