From business planning to operations, we use our decades of experience to drive member acquisition, engagement, and retention. We know that the more engaging and effective a fitness center is, the more success it will have. It’s all about providing members with a positive experience and the tools they need to accomplish their goals.
Each of our locations may offer a slightly different internship opportunity, however, interns will generally gain experience in conducting fitness testing and evaluation, providing safe and effective exercise programs and group exercise, assisting in planning and implementation of health promotion and incentive programs, high-risk member management, and program administration. As a community wellness intern, you will be responsible for assisting your manager and site-based team in the management of our client’s community wellness and fitness programs. To be successful as an intern you must feel comfortable working in a fast-paced environment. Responsibilities will demand an organized individual with a desire to learn Community Wellness and Fitness industry. Interns will also have the opportunity to gain their EXOS Fitness Specialist Certification (XFS).
