The Fitness and Wellness Internship/Practicum program is designed to enhance your classroom instruction with practical experience that will round out your education. While we encourage students from all programs of study to apply, the Fitness and Wellness position may correlate best with exercise or health related programs, (such as Exercise Physiology, Community Health Education, Kinesiology, and Nutrition). In order to meet the needs of the intern/practicum students, Campus Recreation experiences are flexible. Positions are available year-round and for credit hours, (time commitment and credit hours depend on your program requirements).
Intern/Practicum students are expected to demonstrate initiative, dependability, inclusiveness and a positive attitude. All intern/practicum students are representatives of the Department of Campus Recreation and report directly to the Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness. At the beginning of the internship or practicum, a learning contract will be established between the student and Campus Recreation. Students will have the opportunities to gain experience in these potential areas:
- Fitness center operations
- Nutritional analysis consultation
- Equipment orientation
- Personal training
- Educational programming
- Special events
- Group fitness instruction
- Fitness and wellness program development
- Weight loss programming
- Personal Training
- Be a full or part-time matriculated university student in good academic standing, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above.
- Demonstrate knowledge of CRC policies and procedures, and the ability to work effectively with the campus community.
