Training & Conditioning: Get Better, Faster, Stronger
The goal of our ‘play’ component is to offer an athletic curriculum that compliments the other vital elements of study abroad from excursions and cultural activities to work experience and field studies. We want you to have a well-balanced, immersive experience and that starts and ends with understanding what you need and ultimately want out of this one of a kind opportunity. While interning in Amsterdam you will be commuting by bike (cardio!) , have a gym membership for independent workouts and strength/conditioning sessions with an on-site Athletic Director. Additionally, when available you will be able to compete and train in your sport with local Dutch athletes. You will also receive an athletic itinerary once you commit to the program outlining the various athletic components based on your sport abroad.
