Overview: The internship program at CFR is quite organic – it does not run on specific dates, as we often tailor the program to the interns’ schedules, abilities, and readiness to coach. This program does not typically work well for students or people looking to accomplish the whole thing in a rigid time frame (one month) or as something to compliment outside interests.  We are looking for people who are passionate and committed to the Reason community and are interested in working at the gym as a coach.

Required Gym Attendance/Shadowing/Assistant Coaching Hours: 160 Total Hours over a maximum of 6 months.

This will primarily involve shadowing group classes, 1-on-1s, On Ramps and working the front desk area. Monthly check ins with our Intern Program Director are required. The internship is largely self-directed and we seek out individuals who can take initiative, are excited and are ready to learn.

Membership: During the time that you are an intern, you will be given a monthly stipend and have unlimited access to use our facility.
