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.
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.
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.
