The SSP Internship program is unlike anything I have ever experienced. As a current graduate student pursuing my masters in Exercise Science, I was looking for a program that would supplement my time in the classroom. SSP’s internship program went beyond my expectations. They combine a classroom portion with a hands on approach that enables the interns to learn by going through it themselves. What better way for someone to learn then to have them experience it first hand. I would change my experience at SSP for anything. They have given me the tools necessary to enter the strength and conditioning field.
