Strength and Conditioning Internships
An internship at Finish First Sports Performance will offer you the opportunity to experience hands-on, individualized coaching with youth, high school, collegiate, and professional athletes, as well as the opportunity to become more familiar with advanced program design, including advanced functional screening, evaluations and assessments.
Unlike most other sports performance internships, you will also have the opportunity to learn about business--sales, marketing, website development, and additional valuable business skills such as cash flow and debt management.
A sports performance coach increases his/her market value by understanding sports and exercise sciences, the fundamentals of movement (kinematic sequencing), having a variety of program design methods, the art and science of coaching and team building, AND business--especially in the ability to work within a budget, and understand how decisions affect cashflow. Interested in opening your own facility some day, or having your own products? Then this is also a great place to start. All interns will receive assignments and must complete an internship project (for specific details, contact us).

Kingdom Man: Every Man's Destiny, Every Woman's Dream
By Dr. Tony Evans
“A kingdom man is the kind of man that when his feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, ‘Oh crap, he’s up!’”
So begins this powerful volume from Dr. Tony Evans, now in softcover. Tony believes that God wants every man to be a world-changer.
He skillfully takes readers along a journey through the principles of biblical manhood, exploring how those who live, work, and minister around a kingdom man benefit from his leadership and care. Men will be challenged to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them.
Equipped with these concepts, they can actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives.
As Tony contends, the enemy doesn’t want you to know it, but you’re not the man you think you are. You’re a whole lot more. Starting now, you can be a kingdom man.
"This books is an excellent guide for any man who wants to live by God's design for male leadership in a family!"--Jeremy Hoy
