Our In-Person Internship Program is coming back to our new location in Atlanta, GA!

THE ALTIS INTERNSHIP

PROGRAM

It is the belief of us here at ALTIS that a big step towards becoming a high-performance coach is by being immersed in a high-performance culture, and working alongside elite coaches and athletes on a daily basis.

Group

The primary goal of the ALTIS Internship Program is to train the next generation of high-performance coaches. At the same time, we are dedicated to advancing the discipline of Professional Coaching by providing an environment in which developing coaches are able to learn their craft through a hands-on, immersive experience.

What To Expect

The ALTIS Internship program involves a combination of lecture sessions, problem-based learning, and practical skills development.

With learning taking place both on the track and in the weight room, the ALTIS Internship Program provides interns with scientific and practical education in all areas related to high-performance coaching, including:

  • Methodology and systems
  • Program design
  • Periodization and planning
  • Strength and power
  • Basics of performance nutrition
  • Acceleration development
  • Performance Therapy
  • Event-specific mechanics
Group Coaches

 

It is the primary coach-development philosophy of ALTIS that learning should be active, self-directed, and interactive.

Program Outcomes

1. Gain Work Experience

Most young coaches all have their educational experience in common. What stands out to employers are students who ALSO have work experiences. The internship automatically makes you more marketable to potential employers – especially when the internship experience is with such a high-level of mentor coaches.

2. Network with professionals in your field

There is not a more experienced, more successful group of coaches working in the same Center anywhere in the world. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from this accomplished group. It is true that it is about who you know. The hands-on real-world experiences that you encounter during your ALTIS Internship will enable you to develop your potential and make key contacts for future networking.

3. Develop new skills and refine others

Learn your strengths and weaknesses by creating learning objectives and receiving feedback from your Mentor Coach. This is a unique learning opportunity that you may never have again as a working adult.

4. Gain confidence in your abilities

The opportunity to work alongside not only an elite coaching group, but also with elite professional athletes will give you the confidence to apply your teachings once the Internship is finished. If the practice is good enough for this group, chances are it will be good enough for any other group in the world.

5. Access to BENEFITS AND RESOURCES

Interns will have participation in the Apprentice Coach Programs and Performance Therapy Programs that take place during your internship as well as access to ALTIS online education courses.

What Previous Interns say

"My internship at ALTIS was unequivocally the most impactful period of my professional development. The incredible wealth of knowledge and experience within the ALTIS staff and extended network is second to none. I wouldn’t be the practitioner I am today without the mentorship and friendship of the ALTIS crew."

Chris Miller
Brooklyn Nets
Performance Coach

"My time being an intern with ALTIS was amazing. The amount of knowledge I gained about coaching and life in general in such short period was one of the best experience of my life. Being surrounded by all these professionals and have the opportunity to discuss with them about the human body, movement and training in general are things that everyone needs to experience. This group of professionals not only made me understand how and what to observe during a session, but gave me the 'why' behind everything. I got the opportunity to get hands-on experience working with Olympians and World Record Holders. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to be part of a professional environment and wants further develop their skills around all aspects of coaching."

Panagiotis Roxanas
AEK Athletic Club

Performance Expert & Author of ‘Game Changer’

"My internship experience at ALTIS gave me the opportunity to grow as a coach in more ways than one. I was able to explore my developing coaching philosophy, with support from my fellow interns and mentor coaches. My experience challenged my thinking from beginning to end, and I left a more confident coach. It was an experience I’ll never forget!"

Jenna Banegas
New Mexico State Track & Field

My time at ALTIS was life-changing. I learned from some of the greatest minds in Sports, and worked alongside with some of the top Athletes in the world. I got to share  experiences with people that became long-term friends since then.
