True Fitness and Nutrition Internship, McLean, VA

From Elliott White, a 2008 Exercise Science alum:

Intern Job Description

True Fitness and Nutrition is a Personal Training Studio in McLean, Virginia and We Make Personal Training What It Should Be.  We offer one-on-one Personal Training, Virtual Coaching, Nutritional Consultations and Massage Therapy.  We have been expanding rapidly since opening in 2013, and are looking for qualified and competent interns to join our team.  Our message is simple: hard work works, and progressively overloaded compound exercise is the foundation to any training program.  Our trainers understand what it is like to be a client by expecting more of themselves in their own training and competitive pursuits.  Many of our trainers have served as Instructors at the National Personal Training Institute, a 600 hour certification to educate the next generation of trainers. 

We are looking for interns with the knowledge to help clients through proper training methods and the hunger to learn as much as possible.  We eat, sleep and breathe this stuff and are looking for a team member to share our passion and grow into a phenomenal trainer to potentially join our full-time staff.  We have doubled in space, and tripled our revenue in under 2 years, and we plan on continuing the trend.  Drop us a line if you’d like to learn more about us, and to see if True Fitness and Nutrition is the right career move for you.
