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.
The RPP Internship Program is a 16-week program that provides you with a comprehensive learning experience that will dramatically improve your coaching skills. The program is designed to provide you with the opportunity to work in a dynamic and integrated model ranging from sports performance, assisting and coaching high school, collegiate and professional athletes as well as adult group and private training.
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.
Interested in Summer? Application date is Feb 1.
