We are always looking for enthusiastic interns who are passionate about wellness and interested in joining our team! Many of our past and current interns are students pursuing a career in the fitness industry as well as other industries, fulfilling a personal interest and/or school internship requirement. We are happy to work with colleges and universities to design a program which meets the internship requirements.

We try to create a mutually beneficial experience with our Internship Program. As an intern, you gain exposure to areas of the business which you are interested in (anything from internet/web to marketing to event production to business development to administration, all having a tie in to the fitness industry at large). Meanwhile, you are helping us with meaningful projects to promote business growth and meet the clients’ needs. Internships are unpaid and can be any range of time (though typically 2-4 months). They can be full-time or part-time. We are flexible with what days/times you choose to work, within normal business hours.

  • Passionate about wellness and fitness
  • Great communication
  • Reliable
  • Open to learning
  • Willing to take on time-sensitive tasks and projects
  • Comfortable with Microsoft Office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint

Please send your resume and cover letter along with answers to the following questions:

  1. What are the desired business units you might be interested in working with?
  2. What do you hope to gain from an internship with IDEA?
  3. What are your days/hours of availability and dates for your desired internship?
