A group of exercise science and marketing students got an up-close look at the sports performance and personal training industry on Nov. 13 with the help of several Bloomsburg University alumni at TEST Sports Clubs in Martinsville, N.J. Their on-site visit, which was the latest Career Road Trip arranged by the Office of Alumni and Professional Engagement, was coordinated through the exercise science, management and marketing departments.
At the TEST facilities, marketing students got an overview of the company as well as a sneak peak at its business model and sales and marketing strategies, while the exercise science students spent the afternoon with TEST CEO Kevin Dunn and his football training staff. The students were able to see some of TEST’s state-of-the art equipment in action and even conducted a few professional training exercises themselves. TEST was founded by alumnus Brian Martin ’92, who currently serves as CEO of TEST Football Academy - is the No. 1 Football Training Company in the country, with locations in New Jersey, South Florida, and youth and high school camps nationwide.
The day concluded with a mini networking session where students heard from two more alums, Mike Baker ’11 and Brian Fetterman ’12, about internship and job shadowing opportunities with TEST.
