That time of the year is already upon us--The Cage coming to the 2011 Arnold Classic. If you’re making your way out to the Arnold there will be a coveted opportunity, the chance to be a part of The Cage. We're looking for some hard workin' fellas who can help out with various tasks, run errands, help with registration, etc. at The Cage.

If ya wanna sign up to help intern for a day at The Cage, throw your hat in the ring here. We're looking for 12 total interns across the 3 days. If you ask some of the interns from previous years, they’ll vouch that it's an experience you won’t soon forget. Come and get your hands dirty with the boys from the Animal Crew.

Requirements: 18 years and over and you have to be in Columbus, Ohio during the Arnold weekend March 4-6th on your own dime.

We will announce the interns in early February.

well shit, ill sign up again ;)

I have interned since the board was created, and the position was created because of me... i know the guys, i know how things need to be run, i know who needs what and when... .and based on last year, you can ask NG, i have no problem buying extra microwaves LOL.

I'd be honored to be an intern. I was at the CAGE last year and saw first-hand the great team they had. All were deserving, all worked their asses off, and all repped the company proudly. To be one of the lucky ones this year, would be one of the best honors you could receive.

I'm in, if selected!

I would absolutely love to be a part of this. Last year was my first Arnold experience, so I took that time to look around, see the sights and all the other BS. But I kept gravitating back towards one place, The Cage. It's just... better than all the other booths there. The atmosphere, the exhibitions, the people, you name it.

This year, I would like to formally toss my hat into the ring for The Interns. Even though I wasn't one last year, I still got a small taste of what it's like to be a part of something bigger; I helped run the soundboard, did video/photos for T. Kemble during his 405 for reps on deadlift, helped with the Bench Your Bodyweight, and was officially Rob's bitch when hauling his boards/chains/Monsters to/from the Expo.

Consider me applied!

Great oppurtinuty but like NG said its work, I mean its not all will be on you as we all bust our ass all weekend but its no cake walk where you just stand around and stare at all the half naked women walking around. I mean dont get me wrong there is always time for that and shit I'll be right there next to you...lol. Newayz its a great opportunity to be part of the Animal family so if you are interested def. sign up

My favorite time of the year! The one weekend that I look forward to the most out of the entire year is the Arnold weekend. Last year was my first time being apart of the Cage and I absolutely loved it! I was able to experience everything it had to offer, the exhibitions, Pros vs Bros, hearing the guys talk about training, diet, ect. This year I would like to return the favor and do my part. I'd like to help set up and run the Cage that we all love.
Officially throwing my hat into the ring.
(plus those were some pretty bad ass button up dickies you all had on)

with as much negative shit that surrounded me after the Cage last year, the only thing I knew I could count on was the Cage again this year. You know I'll toss my name in the ring again to help out, last year was an honor and would love to help out again.

Awesome opportunity here! Can't wait to see who will be this year's interns. These guys have helped us so much in the past. The Cage is definitely the place to be during The Arnold, and working on the inside is an amazing experience. Good luck to all who apply.

Definitely throwing my hat in the ring for this. The Arnold weekend is one of the highlights of the year for me, and I normally spend almost all of my time at the Expo parked at the Cage.

I worked last year on Saturday. Hard work for sure, but it was an absolute blast. It would be an honor and a privilege to be given the opportunity to do it again.

Id love to be an intern, i got into the world of lifting bout a year ago, and have gotten very serious since october. Animal is the path i choose, no ones motivates or does it like you guys. I'm an OSU student(one year left for my nutrition w/business minor degree) and would like to work for you guys at the Arnold...and after i graduate. Consider me In to work The Cage

Guys, this is a PHENOMENAL opportunity with a phenomenal company, but you will work your ass off. When you are behind the counter, EXPECT to HAVE to answer questions about EVERY supp they are selling there, and even supps that arent there. There were often times we were being asked how to schedule someones supplement regiment for them and diets. It can be much like the forvm itself in that aspect. big whigs from corporate are there, and they WILL get to know you. I cannot tell you the number of times I would have to say hi to one of them while RUNNING past them to get more merch/supps/change/someone for Vinny.

It is busy, but it is WORTH it.

I may be new to this game, but supporting animal with my knowledge of their products and my knowledge of general nutrition would be such an incredible experience. A way to give back to my city, as well as the community and company that has helped me achieve my goals in such phenomenal fashion.

As said above, it were easy, it wouldn't be worth doing!

Great post bro. Knowing what we're selling is important in any business. It's most important in Sales which is what behind the counter work is when you're there. It's a good idea to read up as much as you can before heading down there and if you are picked to be one of the lucky ones, you'll be ready. Very well written my man.

This is true. The internship is a coveted position that definitely gets you closer with the guys, and helps you truly learn a LOT more about how everything is done. It is a true honor to help out.

i am not sure if i can do all 3 days but a day or 2, it would be a great experience for me since my big goal with animal is to become one of the guys. just to work, talk and hang out talking about the stuff i love and that's lifting. i could learn a lot from this to make me a better lifter and such.

If you don't have any black pants, I highly recommend black Dickie's work pants. They're fairly comfortable and durable, normally work with the Cage uniform (I know a lot of the crew/interns wear them), and you can pick up a pair for $20-$30 just about anywhere.
