Intern Testimonials

Nate Rueckemann

Nate

Overall, I have had an amazing and very eye-opening experience during my internship. Going into it I really did feel like I knew what to look for and how to perform certain movements which for the most part was accurate when it came to evaluating the main lifts. Where I found myself struggling, was pairing accessory exercises that would be performed in different planes of motion and maximize an athletes progress in a limited number of sessions per week. Another key aspect of exercise that I always struggled with was mobility in general; during my experience, I was able to expand this area of exercises and even begin to perform them myself on a daily basis. One aspect of the internship that I found very constructive and think you should continue to do in the future, is throwing your interns into the fire and forcing them to demand the knowledge. Personally, I felt like this allowed me to grow in the fastest way and allow me to make an impact at XCEL and work towards the goals you have for your athletes. Not only did I grow throughout this process, but I learned that as a trainer of any kind you need to get familiar and comfortable with the uncomfortable aspects of training. For example, it is not always easy trying the break the ice with clients or athletes, but it is a must in order to create a friendly and trustworthy relationship that is essential to long term clientele and development. In the end, I have learned a tremendous amount of information, some that I would have never thought of that I truly feel has allowed me to grow and become a better trainer for the future.
