Gibbons STRENGTH Methodology: Gibbons Strength and Conditioning is a ground-based, free-weight focused, planned long-term development (LTD) program based on the biological age of the participant. The two key areas are 1) consistency of training (minimum of 2 days/week) and 2) monitoring the program results including nutritional needs. This evidence-based approach has achieved a healthy lifestyle and made a difference.
Volunteer Assistant positions available for this summer into the 2016-2017 school year: This is curriculum-based experience that can satisfy any internship requirement. From past interns and assistants the feedback has been to continue for 10 months to get a full experience in how to communicate, organize, and design and implement a program. After the initial transition there is a flexible AM or PM schedule to fit any other outside commitments. Flexibility allows someone to partner with another fitness organization locally. Fifteen-twenty hours per week is required in 3-4 hours blocks to make the experience optimal for the duration of 10 months. Beginning dates are June 5th, Aug. 5th, or January 5th. Interested professionals please send their resume, cover letter, along with two letters of recommendation by a work supervisor or professor from school to firstname.lastname@example.org
