I received this message from Caitlen Manning a 2012 Exercise Science program graduate. She is currently opening her own training studio south of Richmond and is very interested in providing practicum and internship opportunities to others from her area. She wrote:
Studio M provides group training, personal training, team training, and online training in Prince George County, Virginia. Construction has finally began and in less than 45 days we will be in our own space! I would love to have interns who are interested in becoming a trainer and learning hands on what it takes to be successful in this field.
You can visit my website at www.studiomtraining.com & also learn about the studio updates/construction by following @studiom_training on instagram!
Caitlen can be contacted through the Studio M website or her Gmail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, Caitlen's mentor is also interested in having future internship students in his facility:
My trainer/mentor also wants to put the invitation out there to JMU students who are interested in the practicum & internship that I did. Shane Sykes runs Elite Athlete Development out of U-Turn Sports Performance in Richmond, VA. He's a former Tennessee & JMU strength & conditioning coach and has coached countless elite athletes from all sports. I learned so much by doing my practicum/internship with him. I was able to test my training abilities and take on a lot of groups on my own. This experience gave me the confidence to establish myself & am now opening my own business because of it.
