Manager Assistant

“My job provides an incredible space that highly motivates individuals to learn, connect, explore and share knowledge to our community and non-community members whether it be through personal training, group exercise classes, and even instructional courses. Although I am a full-time student, I am on a fitness team that caters to students to seek mind-body wellness and health. This space has helped me grow both as an individual and as a young, aspiring professional. ”
