I was responsible for...
- Hire, train, and oversee Fitness Associate position. - Conduct Employee Fitness programs. - Instruct group fitness classes.

I accomplished...
I think my greatest accomplishment from this experience is developing three Employee Fitness programs for the upcoming Fall Semester. I handled the whole project, and I am proud of it. I am excited to see how it turns out once it is over in November.

I learned...
I learned a lot about how I am as a supervisor. I have had experience before with group fitness and programming, but never overseeing a staff. This was especially challenging due to the fact that the employees I was overseeing were close to the same age as I was.

Advice for others...
Try to take as many opportunities as you can. You will always learn something from every opportunity you take, even if you learn you are not cut out for the job, that is still a lesson learned! Whether you are in your internship, still in undergrad, or beyond, take advantage and seek out opportunities!
