Beyond Strength Performance - Northern VA metro - Internship

Awesome Summer internship opportunity with this organization! I spoke to Todd, one of the co-founders, on the phone this morning. They have 1 or 2 positions to fill for the summer! 

Beyond Strength Performance Internship

Beyond Strength Performance 
NOVA Internship  
Course Description 

The Beyond Strength Performance NOVA, LLC (BSP NOVA) fitness coaching internship is a twelve to sixteen-week experiential learning program directed by Todd Bumgardner, MS, CSCS, and Chris Merritt, BS Kinesiology. The program is designed to help exercise science and kinesiology students, interested in pursuing a career as a strength coach or personal trainer, develop the interpersonal, coaching, and program writing skills that accelerate their professional, as well as personal, development.

The program is divided into four modules: coaching, programming, professional expansion, and additional coaching hours. Each module contains a weekly in-service that teaches interns new, immediately applicable skills. (In-service descriptions and schedule included in the attached internship curriculum.) In-service instruction is combined with 15-25 weekly experiential hours during which interns get to observe the BSP NOVA staff, and get direct coaching experience with BSP NOVA clients.

Why the Beyond Strength Performance NOVA Experience is Different 

The BSP NOVA internship isn’t a run of the mill experience—it’s an engaging process that helps those that desire a fruitful fitness industry career to explore their interests while also developing the practical skills that will make them successful trainers and coaches.
