Rockland Peak Performance (NY) Internship

Rockland Peak Performance in Sloatsburg, NY, contacted me today. It sounds like they have developed an awesome internship experience. They take internship students all year long -- Fall, Spring and Summer. Ideally, they would have 5 students each semester. Not from NY? Not a problem. They can provide housing.

As an RPP intern, you would have the opportunity to compliment your hands-on learning experience with participation in our weekly In-Service sessions, which focuses on continuing education in a classroom-style learning environment.  These sessions cover a wide variety of topics.  We work closely with our interns to develop coaching, assessment and program-design skill sets to compliment career aspirations within the fitness industry.
