Andrew Traver began volunteering with Specialty Athletic Training in 2012 as a peer mentor. Fast forward four years later, he is a lead trainer and has over 4,000 hours of experience working with our clients. I recently asked him why he loves his job. Here is what he had to say.
Being able to create a fun, interactive environment while at the same time providing one of a kind workout experience has led me to love my job. I am able to do two things that have always been important to me, being physically fit and helping others in their pursuit for a healthier lifestyle. These two come together perfectly at Specialty Athletic Training and is why I enjoy it so much.
