Internship Program


We are a Strength and Conditioning facility that provides health, wellness, and enhanced performance to not only athletes but of all the people of our community here in Astoria, Queens. Over the course of three months, an internship at ILP will dramatically improve your skills as a coach by putting you in real life situations, learn- by- doing experience.

At Iron Lion, we seek to provide our interns with a hands-on experience that prepares them to excel as a performance coach. Each intern is given a manual that details our system of operations. In the manual, we delve into assessments, testing, warm-ups, programing (Micro and macro cycles), exercise progressions and techniques, power, agility, and culture. As they learn, we progress them to be hands on with the members and execute what they have learned.

Requirements to join the family - 

  • 20 hours weekly
  • A background in exercise not necessarily a degree in the field  
  • A drive to help people live stronger and healthier
