For Students: What to look for in a Kinesiology Internship Site

Are you on the hunt for an internship site but don’t know what to look for? Don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered! 

Here are some tips to help you find the perfect internship site that will keep you excited and engaged:

Values Alignment

Let’s start with the basics. It’s important to find an internship site that aligns with your values. You want to work with people who share your passion for health and fitness. Take some time to research the company’s mission statement, philosophy on training, and approach to wellness. If their values align with yours, you’re off to a great start!

Hands-on Experience

 As kinesiology and exercise science majors, you know that book smarts can only take you so far. The real learning happens when you get your hands dirty (or in this case, sweaty!). Look for an internship site that will give you plenty of opportunities to gain hands-on experience. Whether it’s leading fitness classes or working one-on-one with clients, the more experience you get, the better prepared you’ll be for your future career.

Diverse Client Population 

We all know that one-size-fits-all rarely applies when it comes to health and fitness. That’s why it’s important to choose an internship site that has a diverse client population. This will give you the chance to work with people of different ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels. Not only will you gain experience in working with a variety of people, but you’ll also learn how to tailor your approach to meet their individual needs.

Finding the perfect internship site can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! Just remember to look for a site that aligns with your values, offers plenty of hands-on experience, and has a diverse client population.

 With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to a successful internship and a bright future in kinesiology and exercise science! 

Good luck!
