I’m looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic interns to mix in with my fitness staff and start training some of our current clients to help you gain the experience needed T
here may even be a paid-position here for you once you complete the internship.
A personal training internship is a temporary work experience in which you receive training and gain experience in your field. It will:
Give you in-the-field experience that you can't get in a classroom or a book
Give you the opportunity to explore and understand the industry before committing to it full-time
Let you create relationships with potential employers
Help you acquire the skills necessary to perform your job well
Teach you valuable new skills with which to build your resume
Establish vital career networks and mentors
Enable you to collect references for future employment
Potentially Establish employment!!!
ResponsibilitiesDevelop Comprehensive Fitness & Performance Programs For Clients: You’ll receive coaching and training on our fitness system and programs, but you’ll have flexibility to incorporate your own training style and knowledge.
Tracking Client Progress: In order to ensure a client’s success in our programs, you’ll need to track progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log worksheets and more on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. When assigned, it will be your job to hold a client accountable to his/her fitness/performance program to ensure the best results possible.
Perform Fitness Evaluations: Ideally, you’ll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, body weight, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate and various strength, power, speed and flexibility tests.
Demonstrate Proper Exercise Instruction: This is a big one. I will teach you the exercises we typically use but I need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during a client training session. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (i.e. muscles, movements, functions, etc) and be able to select/provide appropriate exercises for the client’s goals. You will need to quickly learn and grasp the various exercises we prescribe and become proficient at teaching and explaining them.
I want to be clear that this is an unpaid internship. You will work as an employee, but will not receive monetary compensation. What you will be “paid” is the amazing experience of working along side very knowledgeable and successful personal trainers on the inside of a successful fitness busines.
RequirementsGood Communication Skills: You will be talking with my clients, who are VERY important to me. You must be comfortable conversing in-person and on the phone and know how to conduct yourself professionally, and deliver clear instructions to the clients. I’ll teach you everything you need to do during a training session, but I can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
People Skills and Personality: You must LOVE working with people! As mentioned above you must be very comfortable working with people. This is an exciting and fast paced fitness facility and you must be able to show our clients energy and excitement while working with them.
Health and Fitness Education: You do not have to have personal training experience, but you should have a working knowledge of health and fitness and the human body and an ability to quickly grasp the concepts I will teach you.
Preferred Course Work: Human Anatomy, Physiology, Exercise Physiology. (Bonus: Motor Learning, Biomechanics), CPR Certified
