I was responsible for...
I worked with athletes to become better overall athletes. I did this by helping them complete sports specific training. I led club sports workout sessions where the clubs focused on their sport skills and techniques. When new clients would come in to use the facility, I was in charge of handleing new membership paperwork and money.

I accomplished...
The greatest accomplishment from this experience is that I was learned a lot about my own personal capabilities. I improved tremendously in my ability to work one-on-one with athletes, and do so with confidence. It was also rewarding to see the athletes progress and reach their highest potential.

I learned...
The greatest lesson that I have learned from this experience is that if you work hard, do what you are told, and have fun with what you are doing, good things will tend to follow.

Advice for others...
Take your time and choose a place where you are going to enjoy what you are doing and chose a similar place you hope to be at after graduation. This will provide you with good insight into whether this is what you want to do for your career or whether you should try a different avenue.
