Advice on how to get into MMA stength and conditioning training as a carrer
I have been studying for my NSCA certifation , and I have put some thought into it and I would like to work at a MMA facility. I've always liked to be the best I can be in anything I do , so along with my studies at home I would like to also work under a already practicing trainer. I fell I would get almost like a classroom lab expierience like when med students do their residency.
My question is how would I go about trying to get some sort of job or apprentiship working under a trainer in a MMA facility? Is this something typical of someone looking to get into this field ? Or what is the best way to enter into training mixed martial artist at an already established gym , so I can learn further and get some expierience under my belt?

I'm glad to see your going for your certification. In all honesty it's not like MMA training run internships, it's more you either are an instructor at an MMA gym and teach physical fitness to your students or you work as a PT at a gym and train MMA guys. Your best bet is to talk to the people at your school if you got a good relationship and see if they can help you out.
