HPW Student Internship Experience – Austin Ryf 16′
Interning at Bellin Health, specifically with the Strength & Conditioning staff, was a very rewarding experience. The knowledge and experiences I gained from UWSP coursework set me up perfectly to succeed and really enjoy this internship. I was able to learn from physical therapists, personal trainers, athletic trainers, and strength coaches all with the Bellin system. The wide variety of information I received from these professionals on health and wellness kept me interested and excited to go to work every single day. Meetings with these professionals happened at their weekly staff gatherings. The strength coaches at Bellin serve the area high schools. Each coach runs their
whole school’s strength program after school. I was able to experience two different high schools, Green Bay Southwest and Green Bay Preble. Both high schools and respective strength coaches had their own unique training philosophies and programs. This made me realize how diverse this field is because of the different ways you can coach and program. I learned way more information than I ever thought. By halfway through my internship, I led groups of athletes through their workouts and even made specific in season programs for
certain teams. While at Bellin, I also got to experience their Movement Performance Lab, which is one of two in the nation. They have high definition cameras and technology that analyze athletes’ movements trying to figure their weaknesses. Along with a movement assessment,
they also offer runners assessment. Being able to see and perform these assessments and then dissect the results was very intriguing and an overall great experience. Along with interning with the strength and conditioning staff at Bellin, I was able to intern with D1 Sports Training Staff. I created a marketing brochure for their summer programs and was given full reigns for this project.
