Kasey: Exercise Science

Kasey Giles had an active and impactful internship as she helped people stay healthy and strong. Performance goals were the motivator and success was the reward at The Camp.

What was your internship experience?

I had the opportunity to work one on one with clients- I performed body analyses and helped them come up with a personalized plan to get to their goal. I also taught group bootcamp classes to help increase cardiovascular endurance. I also created and implemented new, innovative ways to promote The Camp and build up clientele.

What prepared you for this experience?

My personal training class prepared me to take the NASM exam, which allowed me to do this internship. I have the intention to grow into a management position in the company. I am integrating the management skills that I have learned from school and from my boss to show that I am prepared and able to fulfill that role.
I have taken classes in taping, upper and lower extremity injury evaluations, modality use, rehabilitation practices, first aid, as well as numerous anatomy and physiology courses. All of these classes helped me to have a base understanding and familiarity with the human body, how it functions, how it can be injured, and how it can be treated.I had the opportunity to work one on one with clients- I performed body analyses and helped them come up with a personalized plan to get to their goal.

What was the most useful thing you learned?

The most useful thing I learned was some valuable marketing strategies that helped me build up members at the Camp. I learned what goes into running a business and how to be professional in all of my actions.
I learned how to present myself to a larger audience. I went on TV to promote the Camp so I learned how to speak clearly and in a way that shows my knowledge and experience.
