HPW Internship: Bounce Fitness

 Comments Off on HPW Internship: Bounce Fitness

HPW Student Internship Experience – Carly Falk 15′
During the summer, Bounce did a lot of events with local businesses or apartment complexes where we were responsible for building relations with the business and employees/residents. At the events, I would run the Tanita scale which measures body weight, BMI, body fat percentage and mass, muscle mass and percentage, BMR and body water percent. With the Tanita, it also shows the person interested where they are at with not only numbers, but pictures if they are in the “green, yellow or red”. I also was responsible for maintaining a lot of the social media relations, primarily Facebook for Bounce Fitness. Mainly, I was in charge of just maintaining the social media presence, so I would comment on other statuses and like other people’s posts/pages etc. Pictured above are two events that Bounce was invited to give free health assessments; we always brought the Tanita scale, handgrip  test and blood pressure monitor. We conducted health assessments for the local television station. The left, we had a lot of people interested in what their health assessment showed, and it ended up being about 2 hours longer than what we had planned.
