A tradition where we honor our FORVM members by giving them an opportunity to be a part of The Cage. The 2014 Cage is approaching fast and we will be selecting a few of you to help out. We don't know how many we may pick yet, however, if you are interested, this is the thread to post in.

1. You must already be going to be at the 2014 Arnold weekend and have a place to stay already lined up. You may be selected for one day or multiple days.

2. You must be 18 years of age or older.

If you interested, tell us why you want to be an intern and what day you would be available.

Good luck fellas.

I'm in for this again!

These past few years i've been fortunate to work all 3 days right alongside all the big dogs, getting a chance to not only sell product but also was able to talk to fans and answer questions about them. It's an amazing experience being behind the scenes seeing how everything works and watching fans come up and want to be a part of it all! I would love to be a part of this again. Truly one of the best experiences of my life. I'd be available all 3 days.

I'd love the chance to intern this year.

The Cage is something I look forward to every year that I attend the Arnold. Representing and helping out a brand that I believe in is an honor to me. I've worked as an intern in the past and I know my place in the scheme of how everything is run. I think my work ethic and willingness to help the cause shows. I know the products and I know the company's ideals.

You want me to make shirts? I got you. You need help breaking down after the expo? I'm your guy. You need help on the line selling products? I'm on it. Whatever you need, I'll make it happen.

Thanks for the consideration.

Oh I'm definitely up for this again!

I've been one of the lucky few to have previously worked at the CAGE, and let me just tell you, it's an awesome experience.

Being able to stand side by side with the fellas who make this company run, talk shop, help out in any way possible (even if it means leaving the EXPO hall to find batteries for the scale... damn you, Rob), and answer customers' questions about product are just some of the highlights of an already-amazing weekend experience.

I'd be available every day.

Phone dropped off the second half. I'd be honored to help out in whatever capacity I'd be most useful. From what Nix0r has told me before there's a lot to do from being in the cage to working the tables and spreading knowledge. I'm down with whatever and would love a chance to meet some of the Animals that'll be there.

I'm available Saturday and Sunday. Animal has given so much to me personally, from a breadth of knowledge to products that work. In addition to that, the athletes they sponsor give so much to all of us, from just answering questions on here to making drives to attend ABC's. I'm grateful to be apart of this community, this brotherhood, and if there's anything I could do to give back, besides just representing the brand and supporting them non-stop. I'd be more than willing to help and volunteer my time.

I would love for nothing more than to help work the 2014 Animal Cage at the Arnold this year for the greatest supplement company out there. This website and company got me started back when I was a freshman in high school and has taught me most of what I know now. Also the Arnold Classic falls on my 21st birthday weekend, so what better way to spend your 21st than with the crew that got me started into this lifestyle? I will also be down in Columbus for the entire weekend so I would be available whenever needed. I greatly appreciate your consideration and hope to hear back from you and join you for the big weekend ahead.

My name is Chris Kelly I am a powerlifter and strength coach out of New York, I live and breath the iron with a 1515 total as a 220 junior in the RPS fed I came across this opportunity and had to jump at it. There is nothing better in this world then learning and growing as a compeitior, and coach, by watching and listening to those at the top, then to be afforded the opportunity to work side by side is nothing short of a blessing. I want to be a part of this year's cage because I have been watching cage videos for as long as I can remember every time I can feel then intensity, even through the screen. The energy and level of talent brought together under one roof and four steel chain link walls is humbling and to be part of something like that would not only push me but also those I coach. Please consider me for an intern spot for either the Saturday or Sunday slots and I promise I will bring and give everything I've got to help the athletes and animal take this year's cage above and beyond. Thank you animal for affording everyone this opportunity.

Truth.

I was fortunate enough to intern the past two years and each time was an unforgettable experience. Don't get me wrong, it is a lot of hard work and you will be exhausted at the end of the day/weekend, but it is one hell of a ride. Best of luck to all of you applying this year. I have caught hell the past couple years from my wife because the expo always falls on my birthday weekend and I was committed to spending whole-days at the convention center between interning and other volunteering with the expo, so I all I will be doing this year is hanging out here and there throughout the weekend so I can spend sometime with the family as well. See you all at the cage and at Metro/BLT in the evenings.

I'd really like the opportunity to be an intern this year at the Arnold Classic. I have been attending ever since I can remember with my father. We always do the bench challenge in the CAGE. That is the highlight of our trip to the Classic.

It would be pretty amazing to work along side some of the most badass dudes in the industry repping an amazing brand. It would be an extremely informational and unforgettable experience I am sure.

I would be able to work all day Saturday. I live 10 miles south of Columbus so there is no issue with being there bright and early to help out.

Looking forward to seeing you guys again this year, hopefully as an intern!

Thanks

Of course I'm going to throw my name into the hat for this opportunity.

This is the first year I'll be going to Columbus, but the only real event or booth I would be at would be the Cage anyway. Why waste my time going anywhere else?
I've already driven 5+ hours just to get to the still-active ABCs here in the Midwest (namely Chicago and Madison, WI) and would love to further my involvement with the Animal community by being apart of the greatest event at the Arnold.

Regardless of being picked for the internship or not I'll still be present with the usual Chicagoland crowd.

I'm in the same boat. This year I'm hoping to be able to kick back and not miss any of the events...they get better each year and this year is shaping up to be no different.

I've had the honor and the privilege to intern 4 times...once for the whole weekend, and last year I ended up filling in for a day when someone had to drop out at the last minute. You will work your ass off, but at the same time it is more than worth it. To say that it is an experience you will never forget is an understatement. If you're on the fence at all, go ahead and throw your hat into the ring for this, trust me you will not regret it.

Interning in the Animal Cage would be a dream and an honor. I’m a dedicated consumer to your products and a true fan of the athletes. I’m a professional fireman and In the beginning of 2010 I was struck by a Ford Excursion while working at a traffic wreck. I had broken bones, torn ligaments, muscles to be reattached and after the surgery I was told I’d never compete again. It was Frank McGrath’s motivation after his accident that got me to stop feeling sorry for myself and get my ass back where I was before. After 6 months out of work, rehab, reading the stories from Animal and the regiment of Animal supplements I was back to lifting, competing and am now better than ever. I owe a lot to Animal & to be part of the Cage would be small gesture to repay back everything you have done for me. Any of the days that weekend would be amazing. Thank you.

Animal has been with me since the beginning. In my personal journey thread I mention that a certain group of guys struck my attention these guys were my first glimpse into the world of power lifting. I noticed that many of them all had the same yellow shirt that said "Animal." As I did my research I found out what this shirt represented. Not only did it represent a great subsidiary supplement company formed by universal nutrition it represented a community, an attitude, and a character type all of its own. I once heard if you ever walk into a gym and have no idea what to do find someone you want to be like and do what they do. So I did. I bought my very own iconic yellow animal shirt and it instantly became my most prized possession. I wore that shirt as often as I could and I saved every dime I could just use the same Pak Stack those guys were. As time progressed I ultimately grew out of this shirt, but before doing so I won my first competition while proudly displaying this shirt.

To me it wasn't just a piece of clothing it was my training partner it was a insignia that I belonged to something greater than myself.

To this day I still have this shirt and often look at, because it reminds me of a time when this sport was fresh, new and exciting, but most importantly it reminds me of how far I came.

I realize that you will have many applicants that are much more versed than I am in the sport of power lifting as well as the supplement industry, but I dare say few of them hold Animal with he same fondness and prestige as I do.

If chosen to intern at the animal cage I will do all I can to support those within the Animal community in hopes that I can provide tangible memories to future generations of the Animal family.

All right, I can't pass up this opportunity again. I am a two time intern, a long time Arnold Expo attendee, and a veteran Cage FORVM member. I can still remember the days when I would get to the Expo and see this crazy chain linked area with music blasting and insane lifts being accomplished. I knew I had to become part of whatever this is. I became a member of the FORVM and quickly became part of the family. The next year I got my VIP badge and made my way INTO THE CAGE. It was like stepping into the belly of the beast. But it was not intimidating once I got inside the Box. Other members of the legion immediately came up to me, asked who I was, and it was like I instantly became part of the Animal family. I knew I was home. I decided that I wanted to be a bigger part of this event and applied to be an intern 2 years ago and couldn't believe I was accepted. I was pumped. I loved giving back to the company that gave me so much. Interning is an honor and a privilege, but it is damn hard work. You really see what Animal puts into making this event so successful. Even when I wasn't interning last year I was always seeing if there was any way I could help out because there is always things that can be done. I would be honored if I had another opportunity to intern again this year. I spend the whole weekend at the Arnold starting Thursday night and leaving when they kick us out on Sunday, but would prefer interning Friday or Saturday because as my wife supports my lifting I support her running and she is doing the Arnold Pump and Run in the morning so I would like to be there to support her while she is competing. Thanks in advance for the consideration my Animal brothers.

Here we go again. I would like to be put in contention for one of the coveted Intern spots for this year's Cage. I have been going to the Cage for some many years now I don't remember how long ago was my first. One of the few things that I haven't done was be an Intern. Last year I was so happy and excited to be a part of the Pro v Bro. But I would like to give back and help the company that keeps me focused and inspires me to get in the gym. So hopefully this year I will get my chance. I will be down there starting on Thursday afternoon and leaving on Sunday, so whatever help you need. I will be around whether I intern or just hang out there the whole day.

I would love to be an intern at the cage in 2014. I would be spending the majority of my time in the box regardless so why not help out the best way i know how? I have both retail and film experience so if you want me to sell merch or hold a camera i can do either.. my video of sam byrd i recorded last year was shared by flex online and other big names in the industries social media. I will be there friday through sunday and hope to be considered.. can be reached through PMs or email. corycook1991@gmail.com

1. You must already be going to be at the 2014 Arnold weekend and have a place to stay already lined up. You may be selected for one day or multiple days.

2. You must be 18 years of age or older.

If you interested, tell us why you want to be an intern and what day you would be available.

Good luck fellas.

Well I am submitting my application this year again. I worked Saturday last year as an intern and loved every minute of it. I helped make to shirts at first then did VIP in the cage, after doing both of those they needed help selling merchandise and I killed it. I feel like I can do anything you ask me to do and do it with ease. I live animal, every time I step out of my house I have something to do with the company on me. You may know me by my hundred of animalpak tags on IG (@nfleagle) I have the look and mentality of an animal. I only live half hour away from dayton and plan to be there everyday. I want the opportunity to do this again.

FYI... Here are the Expo hours below. It would be great if all interns could arrive 30 minutes early for their day to ensure that everything will be ready to go before the doors open (where it then becomes mass chaos!), with the 30 minutes factored in, it would become these hours below:

Arnold Expo Schedule
Friday, February 28, 2014
8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Saturday, March 1, 2014
8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

FYI... Here are the Expo hours below. It would be great if all interns could arrive 30 minutes early for their day to ensure that everything will be ready to go before the doors open (where it then becomes mass chaos!), with the 30 minutes factored in, it would become these hours below:

Arnold Expo Schedule
Friday, February 28, 2014
8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Saturday, March 1, 2014
8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Sunday, March 2, 2014
9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

You can email me at jason@universalnutrition.com in case you have questions.

Just curious how we are getting in a half hour early? Interned a few years back and got turned back at the door, and then waited in a line about 200 people deep.
Ideas?

A tradition where we honor our FORVM members by giving them an opportunity to be a part of The Cage. The 2014 Cage is approaching fast and we will be selecting a few of you to help out. We don't know how many we may pick yet, however, if you are interested, this is the thread to post in.

1. You must already be going to be at the 2014 Arnold weekend and have a place to stay already lined up. You may be selected for one day or multiple days.

2. You must be 18 years of age or older.

If you interested, tell us why you want to be an intern and what day you would be available.

Good luck fellas.

I would love to be an intern, number one to be around great lifters and to help out in what they do. I go to the Arnold for the sole purpose of watching the animal cage, I don't care too much about the other stuff. I'm driving 8 hours on Thursday to get there and have a hotel and would be free either Friday or saturday

Good question! We're going to see what we can do--we'll have some people on the lookout to help bring people in (if security will let us). In years past, some of the head interns would be on the lookout for interns and had ways to get them in :D

Hey Dh ca, just caught this now. Thanks for offering to intern but we actually picked interns last week. We'll let you know if we need any additional help on those days!

I just wanted to give a shoutout to J-Dawg and everyone else involved for setting up the Cage and allowing me the honor of working it. Can't describe how awesome it was to meet everyone and rep Animal. Yesterday towards the end of the day everyone was tired and just wanting to be done, then one older man came up with the biggest smile on his face and said he loved Animal for everything it stood for. He said he can't lift like he used to because of surgeries but seeing that A on his shirt pushes him to go lift anyway. Just because you've got a little grey in your muzzle doesn't mean you're not still a wolf!

That really hit home with me and showed that this isn't a fad for us. Animal, lifting, training, diet, it's not just a lifestyle, it's our life. I know it's the reason I get out of bed and that man made my day. Thanks everyone!

Everybody who interned deserves A LOT of credit. The cage was crowded and these guys worked their asses off at the merchandise booth for days. The fact that these guys volunteer to essentially "work" while on a vacation shows their dedication for the company.

I have to say that interning has been such a great experience for me over the years, this year especially... Getting to work hand in hand with people that I hold dear and each year learning more and more about them. When interning, you appreciate how much it takes to make The Cage runs so smoothly, and how hard the folks work behind the scenes before it even starts.

Thank you again for the opportunity to intern... I can't express how grateful I am...

Working the Cage as an intern is a honor and a privelege and I a could not be more happy than I got to do it once again this year. It isn't for the faint of heart, you work your ass off but it is so worth it. Thanks to Animal, the head interns, and all my other intern brothers and sisters for making it such a great and smoothly run event again this year.

(and that feeling of peeling off the paper when you press the custom shirts is fuckin orgasmic)
