The Top Article of the Week
It’s no secret that most personal trainers don’t last. The average trainer earns a certification, excitedly grabs a job at a gym, and then disappointedly exits the industry ~2 years later when things don’t turn out as quite as expected.
Then there is the other class of fitness professionals — those who treat their careers as careers, constantly seeking out opportunities for professional and educational development. If you fit the latter description, you will likely participate in an internship program at some point. Save this list as your all-in-one resource for getting absolutely everything out of that opportunity,
