Learn from Champion
Champion’s Strength and Conditioning Internships offer participants an opportunity to work along side our team to learn and practice our system.
The Champion Physical Therapy and Performance Strength and Conditioning Internship is designed to provide you with a comprehensive learning experience that will dramatically improve your coaching skills. You’ll have an opportunity to work in a dynamic integrated model of sports performance, adult fitness, and physical therapy. Under the supervision of the Champion Performance team, you’ll participate in coaching a variety of adult and youth clients including high school, collegiate and professional athletes.
Interns follow a detailed educational curriculum covering every aspect of the Champion system, including assessment, program design, and coaching skills. Weekly staff inservices, independent learning, and one-on-one learning experiences are scheduled throughout the internship covering a variety of topics each week. In addition, interns may participate in any learning opportunities, such as seminars, that are hosted at Champion during the internship.
“During my time as a strength intern at Champion, I not only got hands on experience and a ton of real-world application, but also learned a lot in regard to personal development and simply being able to effectively talk to a client. Being that Champion has a pretty tight knit staff, I also took a lot from the physical therapy side of things, gaining a comprehensive view of the spectrum between injury and fitness. My time at Champion not only challenged me and helped me grow, it also helped me get a job in professional baseball.”
“Completing a strength and conditioning internship at Champion as a physical therapy student has provided me with a strong foundation of exercises, progressions, and regressions that I can use in a patient’s recovery. This internship not only taught me how to make the perfect program for each individual, it taught me how to communicate with clients. Champion has allowed me to grow and develop into the confident physical therapy I am today.”
“You’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t give yourself the opportunity to become a strength intern at Champion PT and Performance. They gave me everything I need to know and practice, from sports performance, to adult fitness, to becoming successful in the field of Human Performance. My knowledge, confidence level, and passion would not be where they are today if it weren’t for the staff at Champion. If you want to further advance your career and development, I highly recommend the Champion internship.”
