HPW Student Internship Perspective – Morgan Arnold
Interning at K-C I have implemented programs and initiatives aimed at encouraging stress management, physical activity, healthy eating, and preventative health practices. I had opportunities to market and promote programs through creation of posters,
flyers and brochures. I have designed, implemented and evaluated health promotion programs in conjunction with my supervisor and the exercise facility staff. I had some opportunities to join Skype meetings and conference phone calls with interns who are at the other K-C locations throughout the state as well as with other health and wellness professionals. I was given multiple projects such as working on a Youth Strength Training Toolkit and having a book report presentation that discussed the formation of habits. Working here, I was able to
observe, facilitate and collaborate with the exercise facility for group exercise classes, equipment orientations, and daily operations. When teaching classes, I got to work with the retiree population. These classes were Forever Fit, which consisted of low-impact movements, total body strength training, abdominal conditioning and stretching exercises, and Water Works, which consisted of a low impact
cardio and strength workout. Group fitness was never something I thought that I would want to do, but I have found out I truly do love teaching and being a part of classes. Morgan is shown getting her health screening done which is offered for all employees. During the health
screening, blood pressure is taken, height, weight and waist circumference are measured followed by a Sub VO2 max test. Following the Sub VO2 max test, flexibility and strength are measured. Morgan has observed and assisted with many health screenings throughout the duration of her 10 weeks and has able to see what procedure to take if an employee had an injury or did not feel comfortable with
certain aspects of the screening.
