Internship Roel
Misericordia, Fitness/ Recreation and Leisure Intern

I work at Misericordia as a Fitness intern. Most of what I do is log the resident’s exercise routines, interact with residents from different living areas and help them stay focused and get them moving and grooving. Activities in the Fitness room include yoga, weight training, cardio and Richard Simmons’ dance classes. While I spend most of my time in the fitness room you may see me sometimes in the pool. It’s great helping the residents take steps to stay healthy and active and being in an environment with such great people and music! Next semester I will be working in Recreation and Leisure. I am excited to further explore how I can integrate dance into what I do and continue to get to know the residents.
