Why Intern At Personal Edge?

Personal Edge Fitness offers professional instruction in all facets of fitness and sport. In our facility, clients have learned to walk again, earned collegiate scholarships, lost weight, gained strength, increased speed, and even changed their lives. Although our knowledge of exercise and physical training is the best in the industry, no trainer has ever seen success without developing an effective relationship with their client. It is in these relationships we find the mental reason for our client’s physical goals. For everyone who entrusts their health to us, the staff of Personal Edge Fitness is compelled to find each client’s personal level of wellness. Therefore, no matter what direction you are looking to take your career after school, Personal Edge Fitness can get you the experience you need.

My internship at Personal Edge Fitness included many responsibilities necessary to experience a career as a personal trainer. Each day brought different scenarios where I had the opportunity to make decisions on my own and learn from my successes and failures. The internship was an amazing experience and I feel it prepared me well for my professional career.
