INShape Internship

This semester I was given the opportunity to be an intern with IUPUI'S INShape program. For 8 weeks, fitness and management and exercise science students are given a client with goals and it is our job to create a personal trainer style lesson plan each week to help our client reach their goals. One moment that was meaningful to me was the first day. I know it sounds cliché, but the first day showed me that I knew more about my field of study than I realized and this allowed me to speak more confidently about any question that my client asked throughout our sessions.
