Over the 480 hours of the program, interns will be immersed into Drive’s day-to-day operations. They will be introduced to our holistic system for enriching our clients’ lives. Unlike most internships and mentorships, Drive interns will become an integral part of our team while being mentored by our incredible staff on the full spectrum of our model. While they hone their skills as coaches they will develop an understanding of how our model works at Drive. They will see the synergistic relationship that exists between training, physical therapy, nutrition and sport coaching and how they relate to our business as a whole. They will also be introduced to the fitness business and marketing concepts that help support our continued success.
The majority of their weekly tasks will consist of coaching clients through our group training system, with other supporting duties filling their downtime. There will be an extensive educational component including individual time with Charlie Weingroff, our owner Don Saladino, and our director of training and education Chris Wicus. Interns will be privileged to attend our staff meetings and in services as well as any courses or seminars that Drive hosts over the length of their program. 3000 dollars will be offered as a stipend for the program to help assist with high costs of living in New York City.
