View Full Version : 2011 The CAGE Interns

Post up ur intent. What do ya get as a volunteer? The honor of representin' Animal in The CAGE. It's tough work but rubbin' shoulders with reps and athletes can be a tremendously rewarding experience. Interns get a shirt and a pass to the expo for the day they are workin'. The catch? You gotta already be in Vegas on ur own dime. What else?

Niiice...!!! Uhm... Don't they get to wear some pretty cool gear, too...???

Only the coolest Deadman! I got to intern at the Olympia last year and man talk about being around alot of big dudes!!!

All in all though, its very cool to rub shoulders and pick the brains of all the athletes, reps, and brothers that are around in the Cage, I was simply in awe and very shocked to be around everyone and to see how helpful and knowledgeable every is and were

As well, u get to be up close for some amazing lifts, sh*t u will never see or be close to anywhere else

Everyone that is going, jump on this chance, its one a million!!!

this thread should be a few pages long by todays end

I'm in, my little brother and I are heading down for the weekend. Depending on how many guys want in I'm down to work it the whole time. I don't have the coin for the actual show but this would be a great chance to help out and meet some cool guys. And the big ABC event would be awesome.

hm..... I would LOVE to be out there to help out again, as of now i will be there.... Ive been helping out with the crew at the Arnold for a number of years now, and the Olympia last year as well, it would be an absolute honor to be able to work with the guys again!

I'd like to help out at the Cage. The ABC session and the Cage are actually the only reasons I am going to the Olympia. The expo itself doesn't really do it for me. Meeting some other people from Universal and Animal would be really cool.

I'll be making the drive down there. Already have a room.

KC and I will see you guys down there, any chance we could both intern?

One of the best honors you could receive. Work hand in hand with the crew to make the Cage the best it can be, spread the knowledge of everything Animal including product information and gear sizing. Unreal opportunity!

I would love a chance to intern. It would be a great honor to get to work for the Animal brand that has helped me so much. And I live in NV so I could work all 3 days if needed.

You guys are family and it would be an honor to help out at the Cage. I'm planning on being in Vegas for the weekend and would happily help out all three days.

U Rep? Any idea when the interns would be selected? I have no problem coming down to do that, but if I can save the money and not buy Mr. O tickets, I would.

Its a great experience, to say the least. Over the years, I've noticed a lot of dudes who talk very frequently on our forums, but then become a bit overwhelmed with it all once the time arrives, haha. To see it all go down right in front of your eyes is a memorable experience. We've had some great interns in previous years. My one recommendation, to anyone who attends, is to take some pictures and really soak everything up. Because before you know it, you're on the way back home and you're thinking, 'What the fuck just happened?'. Trust me, it happened to me when I worked my first Arnold.

Who's gonna step up this time?!?

That was me after the ABC in Birmingham this year.

Be sure to just pause for a second & look at what's in front of you.

Course, it's not that easy when you've got Wrath & G forcing rep after rep after rep out of you on an incline bench.
Fortunately I grabbed a couple of pics beforehand & took home some week-long doms in my chest & calves.

NO disrespect to the other guys that are wanting to intern, but I cast my vote for KC Campbell and Cascade.

These 2 boys have driven up to Seattle from Corvallis, Oregon for ABC's twice.
That's a 4.5 hour drive ONE-WAY on their own dime to come workout with the Seattle Animals.

Fuckin dedication for the Animal lifestyle if you ask me.

KC also came up to Vancouver, WA when I did a demo at the Vancouver USA Naturally earlier this year. He was at our table and handed out Animal Pump samples and clearly explained the proper way to use them and what the benefits were to any curious lifters at the show.

"The HIGA tribe has spoken" but best of luck to all that are dropping their names in the hat.
It will be an experience you will never forget.

What a better way to spend your weekend in Vegas, then by doing it up big and working the cage. Its an unforgettable experience. I cant wait to be out there in a few weeks!

I am very interested in the Intern position. I plan on being in Vegas for a few days (13-18) and attending the Olympia. Having been to the Olympia the past two years, I regret not throwing my hat in the ring sooner! So I'll be there, and willing to work for the best company and business. Being a loyal Universal Nutrition user, follower, etc, there is NO other company I would want to, or concider working for at the Olympia.

Have decided to pull out of volunteering for the cage, whether I would or would have not been selected.

Going to put the olympia money towards some more training that will hopefully help me get into Firefighting/EMS.

Good luck to all the other entrants.

I'll be there. Helped out at the Arnold this year and would love the opportunity to help out again. Nothing like the atmosphere at the Cage, and no better way to experience it than standing toe to toe with the Animal crew in the middle of the madness.

That was me last year Aggression! I spend as much time as life and work allow me to on the Forvm and the Universal Site. I absolutely love bodybuilding, nutrition and talking shop and learning as much as I can from everyone in this game. Its what I enjoy, but man when i got to that Cage last year, all the athletes and the reps, it was intimidating, I remember telling you man that everyone is just so big... Larger than life, and had 20 million questions to ask, and maybe fired off 15 of em!!! Time just flew by!

In speaking with Ox, Higa, Aggression, Vinny, J, Christian, G, Everyone was supercool, down to earth and extremely nice, If i had the chance again I would just like to shoot the shit more with all the guys and soak up all I can from them, I mean they all must have got to the size they are at for a reason, right? Why not apply it to my own training.

I will throw my hat in the ring to volunteer again, just as long as it doesnt take an opportunity away from some of the other brothers on here, cause its an experience of a lifetime, which everyone who contributes a great deal to the Forvm (Such as The Rhino and Ghost) deserve to have

either way, chosen or not, i will be there, can't wait for the ABC

This is a great opportunity. I have to say that all the guys that have stepped up and interned previously have been a great help. You guys are an important part of the Cage experience. Ghost has come through for us to help with some last minute problems on more than one occasion.

I'd love to represent the "older" tough guys working in the cage this year side by side with all you guys! I'm hitting the big 50 in december and representing my age like I was 25! Animal is so awesome and ya'll have been a part of my life for many years - hit me up guys - let me be a part of the best that ever was or ever will be at the O expo!

Hey my name is Steve I saw this "cage intern" on twitter thought I my as well post my intentions..Im 19 years old just got into the bodybuilding scene my first show is scheduled for March 2012, I am a die hard animal fan of the athletes also the paks, clothing, gear etc... I go to the arnold classic every year and go straight to the animal reps to see what I have to do to be apart of the team! I would be estatic if I had an opportunity to volunteer my time in the cage, their would be nothing more I would want. Being around such amazing athletes and working for the best brand name out their ANIMAL. Ill do what it takes and devote my time as much as needed, whenever its needed!

I'm not trying to start anything, but in the future could this process be done a little earlier next time; especially for the Arnold. I'm sort of in the same boat as some of the other guys here. I wasn't sure if I was going to go to the O, but the intern option REALLY interested me and that is driving my desire to be in Vegas, nothing else.

The word "intern" here is very important. I don't really have any extra money for this, hell, I'm working a lot of extra hours to make this happen. I'm not even factoring in the cost of the show, which could be the deal breaker if I have to pay for it. I don't want this to come across as a "I'm only in it for the free ticket" sort of thing, I think my reputation speaks for itself.

Most likely it will be standard Cage attire which is black pants and black boots, you will be given shirts to wear when you get there.

Ghost will be the man with the plan, he is the intern captain so he is the go to guy

They were a big help, taking pictures, guarding the audio/visual equipment, helping out in the gym and the shop when it got real busy, doing sign ups for bench your bodyweight contests and more. These guys were great.
