Before joining Fight Fitness, I was a fourth-year Kinesiology student at the University of Guelph-Humber. I had experience in martial arts and a passion for fitness. During this time, I was seeking opportunities to combine my knowledge of fitness with martial arts. Naturally, the work opportunity with Fight Fitness was very attractive to me.
Upon joining the Fight Fitness team, I was pleased to meet a friendly community of individuals who were all very welcoming and helpful. It was refreshing to be part of such a positive and open work atmosphere. My supervisors were genuinely interested in helping me develop as a professional and were extremely helpful during my entire process.
During my time so far, I’ve gained valuable skills in developing and implementing group fitness classes such as timing, flow, exercise selection, and client experience. I had the opportunity to learn from a variety of coaches from different fitness backgrounds. Each coach mentored me and offered helpful feedback and ideas. At the same time, they encouraged me to use my own knowledge and creativity to develop a unique coaching style. By the conclusion of my training, I felt confident and ready to independently lead group kickboxing and “boot camp” style classes.
I feel privileged to have participated in their coaching internship and to join such an amazing team. I would recommend this position to individuals who are passionate about fitness, motivating others, and wish to add fitness kickboxing to their coaching repertoire.
