The March 2018 HHPR Intern Spotlight is on Aaron Walker. Aaron completed his Exercise Physiology internship at Crossfit Waco. Under the direction of the strength and conditioning coach and owner, he learned how to put to use the knowledge he gained in his techniques of strength & conditioning, facilities & equipment and exercise & sports nutrition classes at Baylor. During his 300 supervised clock-hour internship, he attended/shadowed classes, cleaned equipment and eventually was able to teach some classes.
