We just received this e-mail from a previous IFAST intern, TJ Lensch. TJ spent the summer here, and it sounds as though he’s being rewarded for all his hard work!
Hey guys how is everything going!? I promised I would stay in contact so I guess I’ll fill you in on what’s happened in the short time since my departure.
I didn’t take any time off in terms of utilizing the things you have taught me during my internship. I have had several people approach me about programs, and have been busy writing and fixing up times for some assessments for people.
Also, after talking with my head coach (who was very impressed with some ideas), he officially named me strength and conditioning coordinator for the Northwestern College football program and gave me full control of the program. As well, the head athletic Trainer as well as the head of the kinesiology want to get together with me to work together in developing programs for all the sports teams. I am making sure to take full advantage of this opportunity to keep sharpening my skills and constantly seeking new information to do what’s best for the athletes.
Thank you for all the help! You guys have helped with giving me a solid direction early in my life to help accomplish my career goals and have had a great impact on my personal and professional life. So thanks again and will stay in touch!
I’ve got to admit, Bill and I are proud as hell of this kid. He worked his butt off while he was here, and I’m sure he’s well on his way to becoming a top-flight coach. Great work TJ!
All the best
