You guys know I'm in, one day or multiple doesn't matter. I got to do it last year and make some serious friendships over that weekend that have lasted through now again. Happy to help out Animal and my brothers again.

I would be honored to be selected to be an intern for the cage. First, I have participated or visited the CAGE almost every year. I sincerely have used the Animal product line, for decades of training, and I truly understand the need of Hard-core training mentality that the cage beast impart to the much deserving crowds. Friday March 6th is my 50th birthday, and it would be a fitting way to celebrate a fantastic life to spend a day with the warriors of the CAGE. Thanks for your consideration. Danny Harness. danielr.

I plan on getting out there thursday night, leaving early-to-mid sunday and staying with my buddy who lives right outside the city. So if you guys need any help, big or small feel free to hit me up.

I'm in for this again guys. I'll be available all 3 days, and possibly Thursday to help construct the cage as well,I won't know until mid Feb . It was an awesome opportunity last year and if there is more behind the scene construction hands that are needed, I can help. Other than that I'm open those 3 days.

Count me in again this year. I have interned the past few years and have have worked all the different areas of the Cage and Shop. I will be down there Thursday evening through Sunday when it closes so I am good for any or all days.

For people that haven't interned before definitely sign up. You won't be disappointed working side by side with the Animal Corp Crew and all the Animal Athletes. It is hard work but so rewarding and a lot of fun.

I have been so so lucky to stand beside so many great athletes and promotional people at the ASF animal cage for the past 2 years. I would love to continue on by doing it again this year. I have had nothing but great memories from the past and has been getting better every year as I get to meet and catch up with everyone. I have done it on Saturdays the past 2 years and I am willing to do any day but prefer Saturday. You won't be dissapointed by selecting me. I do not live far from columbus so I am available to help set up as well.

I'm definitely down to put in work.

I am a 5 time intern in the cage, and have carried my weight every minute I was there. I don't necessarily look forward to the Arnold; I look forward to The Cage. I tell people all the time, I could never work for or represent any other supplement company, other than Animal. It's always an honor to throw down with my Animal family.

Being a veteran of The Cage, I know exactly how everything is run, front, back and in the Cage. I think my work ethic and willingness to help the cause shows out. I know the set-up like the back of my hand and don't need to be told to execute tasks. Stocking product, loading weight and directing traffic are all no problem to me. I have extensively and exclusively used the Animal line of products for quite some time now, and introducing and selling to customers is second nature to me. I was on the line for the infamous year of the "Rugby" shirts that everyone was clamoring over. I can crank out T-shirts like a mofo and teach other interns how to run the machines. A big problem last year was running out of change for $20s. I belong to the 2 closest banks in the area and made around a half a dozen trips, 4 blocks down the street to get $5s. I always stay until the expo is barebones, to help break down, clean and pack up and that shit wouldnt change this year.

Whatever you need, you can count on me to come through, every damn time.

I have also been lucky enough to be selected in previous years, and had such great experiences, so I'm up for the opportunity again. Not sure what more I can say about why I want this opportunity, as I have always said... Being a member here is in some fashion, a part of my everyday life, in and out of the gym... A true and loyal supporter of the brand and the Legion. I may not be the biggest, strongest, or whatever the other brands demand, and I sure as hell won't be bought away from a entity that I truly believe in... As we all know and appreciate, Animal has never been known as cookie cutter....

We have been fortunate to have Corporate put together great teams, as somewhat of a support staff, that worked well together for the greater good... They know that we, as a whole, are all there to help make The Cage run as smoothly as possible from set up to tear down...

I will be available from Thursday until, well... they kick me out Sunday (you know that happens every year...) It's so hard to leave good company... :)

It truly takes a a team and we ALL know how hard Corporate works throughout the year to make OUR lives better... Best of luck to all entering and be prepared for the most hectic, crazy, exhilarating, time of your life!!

As you can tell by the title, it will be myself and the wife. We would like the chance to volunteer because fitness is our passion, the guys at our local YMCA call me Animal because of my shirts I wear and last but not least, we love the "Animal" brand. I, myself, have several t-shirts and caps from Animal that I wear daily. This will also be my 8th time at the Arnold and at the cage. I spend quite a bit of time at the cage watching some of the IFBB's and powerlifters throw it down. I figure this year I want to help out and be up close and personal with them. Maybe even put some weight up with them. Who knows???

The days we would be available are Saturday mainly but some on Sunday. Sometimes we leave early on the last day, that's why I say that. We would love to help and can't wait to make new friends on the way!

You know I'm in for this again.

I've been fortunate enough for the past few Cages to be able to be able to help run things, and make sure the events and shop run smoothly, and I'm coming back for more. I've been through the ringer, from loading plates, to directing traffic, to having to leave the Expo and find a store to buy batteries for the scale... I'll still never forgive ghost for making me do that...

I'll obviously been in town all weekend, so I'm available for any and all days where you may need me. For me, this weekend is about The Cage; the fact that there's even more to the expo is just a bonus.

Let's do this.

Oh you know i'm in for this. Being chosen in the past has been incredible. Each year i had the opportunity to help this company grow by providing great customer service and overall representing the brand and try my best to push the brand even further. Among the chaos and insanity we brought order all while smiling, remembering why we there: Push the company and provide knowledge to those that were new to it all or provide more information for those that wanted to know more. I can't tell you the amount of questions i received that began with "I've taken Pak for years, but what other stuff do you guys have/what else can Animal do for me?". Whenever we hear this i'm sure i'm not the only guy that smiles because we look back and remember that this was us many years ago. We were all in this boat.

Personally last year was quite overwhelming. Being able to not only work the entire weekend, but be one of those chosen to speak in the Cage videos and let's not forget being able to train with P Diesel! I laugh remembering at my first Cage when Juggernaut told me "it just gets better and bigger every year dude". I'll never forget this because each Monday when i woke up back at home i would think "there's no way it can get better than what i just experienced". Well let me tell you he was right. No matter what awesome experiences you had in the Cage one year, that experience will be topped the following year. Just an incredible and unforgettable time with family. I don't know what else to say except i'm all in and whatever need to get done for this company i'm there the entire weekend.

02-02-15, 10:42 am
I would like to be put in contention for one of the coveted Intern spots for this year's Cage. I will be down there starting on Thursday afternoon and leaving on Sunday, so whatever help you need. I have been going to the Cage for some many years now I don't remember how long ago was my first. Last year I was so happy and excited to be chosen as an Intern. I would like to give back and help the company that keeps me focused and inspires me again this year. Every time I need a kick in the pants or some extra motivation, there is nowhere else I turn. There is no other place like the Cage at the Arnold, reunite with friends, see super human strength exhibitions, and give back and help the company that keeps me going and keeps me on the right path.

This will be my 2nd year at The Cage. I was finally able to save up and take off to go. My girlfriend and I spent 95% of the weekend in The Cage and we have no regrets. Unfortunately, last year I didn't know interns were being picked until I was there, so I've been looking forward all year to hopefully get a spot as an intern this time around. The one thing that stood out to me at The Cage was the strong sense of friendship and comradery among everyone, and that really stuck with me. I was able to talk and meet some of you last year, and have been to a bunch of ABC's/URT's over the years...and I think this is a great opportunity to become more involved with a company I've been following and supporting since I've started training. Everything is booked and ready to go, so I will be around the entire weekend, and I am able to help out any day, in any way. For me, it would be awesome to represent a company I respect so much.

Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone this year too. Thanks for the consideration.

Well I am in! I have also been an intern in the past. It was amazing being trusted to work along side everyone and represent the brand that we all live and bleed by in the gym everyday. I knowat least in my town and surrounding area my name is synonymous with the animal brand because I represent animal all year every year. It would be great to intern once again to form an even stronger bond and help make the greatest booth at the Arnold even better this year!

Pretty sure it goes without saying that I am down for this as always..

Got the chance to help build the Cage last year and want to again this year.. the hotel is already booked for weds and Thursday and the whole damn weekend.

To be an intern is a huge responsibility. You become not only someone to check people into the box, or help crowd control when guys are lifting huge weight.. but also you become the face someone will associate with this brand when they come to see the Cage or buy some swag. They may not get Wrath to sell them an iconic tee. So they get you. You are who they remember as the ass hole, or the good dude/gal who helped them out.

I welcome the opportunity and the responsibility again this year and won't sugar coat it but I fucking want in again

I would love to join you guys this year at the cage, worked on Sunday last year and it was a great time. I'll be down there on Thursday throughtout the weekend for my birthday once again so any day would work for me, or multiple if needed. JDawg took good care of me last year and I really appreciate all that you guys at Animal do for us fans. This was a great experience for me and I would be more than happy to help out again. Thanks for everything guys.

Just want to say that it's a true testament to Animal and all the athletes who represent that so many fans want to spend their time to work for free and be part of this event every year. I don't get there with enough time to intern, but good luck to all and see you at the CAGE.

Both of these individuals have represented animal for a long time and have done a great job for all the visits i have made in the cage over the last 6 years. I would highly suggest picking them again.

I've been thinking about this since last year. You can definitely count me in if you need help Thursday and Friday. I've been in the cage the past two years and through my experiences at The Arnold and the ABCs we have here in Ohio you guys feel more and more like family, and we go out of our way to help family. I totally meant to get in here earlier and post that I'd love to help, but the Power Station PreCage ABC literally blew up giant size over night and I've been on a roller coaster of planning, drawing, and creating since. When I'm in that mode everything else really disappears, even the urge to eat. I digress... I'm in if you need another friendly face and helping hand.

New guy here, well new to the Animal Forvm.

I wanted my first post to be the Intern position. My goal for 2016 is to lift in the cage for Bench. So this year a nice opportunity would be an Intern and get my feet wet first hand.

I know and have met several people who will be in the cage already, I will leave it up to them to chime in.

A little about me,

30 years old, Cincinnati Ohio. Competitive Power Lifter specializing in the Bench Press, but I do compete full power. If I get to be part of the exhibition next year It will be in bench only.

Perk of having me as an Intern, is I already know a few of the people so some camaraderie is already present, but I can also hold my own lifting with any of the guys on the bench... or keeping the fans entertained when some of the highlights are taking a rest.


Here is my Overload set at a recent Animal ABC in Cincinnati

http://youtu.be/ZJ4-ycorOYw


I also hold the RPS record for the 220lbs Raw Modern Bench Press with a 480lbs RAW bench.

Looking forward to hearing from someone.

I'm coming up Thursday morning from knoxville tennessee. I Would love the opportunity to intern in the cage this year! This is only my second trip the arnold but last year I couldn't tear myself away from the cage. You can't beat the atmosphere of it! Everybody on the inside of the cage walks in and out and talks to all the fans like normal people without the horrible lines and chaos. I love what the animal company stands for and how it stands with the people and I'd love to be a part of that! I'm there thursday morning until late Sunday and can help out any day it's needed.

Ive been chomping at the bit since The Cage 2014 for this to be announced. I had the privilege of interning in The Cage 2014, even with the blizzard coming in on the last day I didn't want to leave when it was over, even knowing I had a long drive back to Virginia to make. It was a honor and experience I'll never forget but want to duplicate again this year. I want to intern because I want the chance again to work and give back to Animal because Animal has given me so much over the last decade, from articles and quality suppliments to motivation when my body or my mind was in desperate need of it. Watching YouTube videos of Ox and Wrath kept me motivated while tolling away on the stairmill & prepping 7 meals late at night for the next day.

Checking into the Hyatt Regency Thursday and will be available any/every day. Plain and simple: I Want This.

Being an intern in the Cage would be incredible. This will be my first time going to the Arnold and the Cage is my number one reason for going. I'm an up and coming powerlifter that has been competing for about a year so I follow Animal tremendously. I would be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I would love the opportunity to intern once again for the cage. I interned in 2012 and 2013, and each year the day that I was selected to intern just happened to be my birthday - two birthdays that I will never forget. Anyways, interning in the cage is such a great way for me to give some of my time and energy back to Animal as a thank you for everything they have provided all of us over the years. Through the FORVM and the ABC's I have connected with some really amazing friends and pushed myself harder than I thought was ever possible.

Being local to Columbus, I'll be at the expo and in the cage everyday all weekend. I can be available to work any day needed.

Thanks for your consideration.

My wife's family lives in Columbus, so we planned a tripped out there during the Arnold weekend specifically so I can attend. I've visited the Cage once a few years ago, before I got into powerlifting.

At the time, I was just an onlooker who loved training and nutrition, who had a parked himself up against the metal links of the cage with a camera and a Animal t-shirt under a flannel coat with pockets full of aluminum-foiled-wrapped steak sandwiches. I got some great footage, had a great time, and yelled encouragement to the lifters inside the Cage, but didn't interact with anyone inside and didn't make the trip back for a few years.

I'm hoping to get out to Columbus Thursday night, but will definitely be there by Friday night. I'd love to help out in any way I can.

It is ALWAYS a great pleasure and honor to work side by side with the brothers and sisters here on the forum. I take great pride in being a part of this group! The bonds that have developed over the years is as thick as family blood! To watch my fellow brothers and sisters reach their goals and their development for the love of their sport is remarkable and at times an overwhelming sight!!

So if there is an extra spot for me this year in the CAGE as an intern I would graciously make myself available!
My plans are to be there Friday and Saturday regardless.

I have a hotel room and expo ticket already driving up Thursday from Richmond VA
available: Thursday night Friday and Saturday
so now on to why I should be pick
I started lifting 4 years ago at the age 26 I just laid bricks so I had a strong grip and back but I had no clue what I was doing but what I did know is all the biggest strongest guys at the gym and on the web had something in common that iconic ANIMAL shirt. Well that was it for me after checking ANIMAL out on the old inter webs I was hooked. I started to train like an ANIMAL and loved the products, at 26 I could not bench 135 for 10 to save my life now at 30 I have a gym 1rm pr of 365 and 225 for 20 at 205 body weight. I know not really that impressive in the ANIMAL athlete world but getting stronger everyday and representing ANIMAL along the way. I went to the Arnold last year from Richmond Va for one reason to be in the presents of the cage. It did not disappoint, I was asked by one of my buddies to describe the cage and really as a lifter I first thought was its like the superbowl then the more I thought about it, its the fucking probowl the best of the best in the best environment putting it out there for the fans. When I came home I was more dedicated than ever and push my training new level. I would really like to give back to the company that has done so much for me in a short time. The ANIMAL family is truly unique and no other company can compare to the brotherhood that is ANIMAL and really would love to be apart of it.

Thanks and look forward so seeing everyone from the inside or outside the cage

A tradition where we honor our FORVM members by giving them an opportunity to be a part of The Cage. The 2015 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 2015 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.



Hey guys, anything I can do to help I'm down for. I'll be heading up with a couple friends the day before and will leave Ohio the day after the expo is done.

There is a handful of jobs that usually happen. 1. Working the "Security" of the Box area, meaning that you hand out the lanyards and passes that allow people into the box. 2. In the past few years, they have had a customizable shirt area. 3. Working the Shop where the public comes to buy gear and supplements.

There are random other jobs and tasks that need to be done, but they will let you know when you show up on the day you are working.

Usually one of the head interns will come out and meet you 30-45min before the expo on Friday morning with a pass and you will get to go in early and start working so you are ready when the gates open. Just be prepared the avalanche of people at the beginning is crazy

Wow... Thank you to my fellow Head Interns for helping me learn the ropes! You all were right when you said that it's not for the faint of heart... Thank you for putting up with me (I know 3 days is a lot to handle...lol)

Wow... Thank you to the interning team!!! Most of you are new to this "animal" and you stepped up and took care of business.

Wow... Thank you to my fellow coworkers... You guys are the best to work with... I told you from the get go, they don't call me "DEEsaster" (lol) I'm either bumping into stuff, knocking stuff over, or dancing around you guys, but my recovery is usually flawless...Lmao I had such a blast working The Shop and 99% of that was because of my team (1% is just because I'm goofy enough to deal with people that make me question my faith in humanity... Lol)

Wow... Thank you to all involved in having me there... I've said it all over social media, but I can't give back enough.. If there's every ANYTHING that I can do, please say the word!!

Thank you to Lady Ignite for putting all of this together!! I can't imagine the planning that goes behind making everything happen, but whatever resources you used WORKED... Always in your corner doll!!

More thank yous to come, I'm sure...

BTW... I hurt from head to toe... My hands and fingertips are probably hurting the worst (so weird)... I didn't leave the couch today and there are ZERO "cares" given... :)

I feel really repetitive since everyone else has said it so well but I'm going to do it anyway. This weekend was amazing! Between the ABC on Saturday and getting to intern inside of the cage on Sunday and just getting to watch all of the exhibitions Friday and Saturday it could not have been any better. It was such an honor getting to stand on the inside with so many great people and getting to experience the athletes triumphs from so close. Thank you again to everyone that had a hand it making this weekend happen and to everyone who made me feel so welcome throughout it all. This really is the best brand, company, and family out there!

For years I've watched The Cage videos on YouTube, wishing I could make it there one day. Last year I was able to make it, but as a bystander and member of The Box. This year, as an intern, I felt like I was a part of The Cage, and I still am so pumped about the opportunity I was given.

A HUGE thanks to J-Dawg, naturalguy and G-Diesel for giving me this opportunity to work for Animal and represent a brand I truly respect. Thank you to the head interns and the Animal staff for all of the behind the scenes work you guys do to make it happen and for showing me the ropes throughout the weekend. To the other interns and forum members, it was a pleasure to work with you and great to finally meet you guys in person and put a face to the names on here. And also to all of the athletes…putting your bodies on the line to make The Cage what it is.

This was the first time I was really able to feel apart of the Animal Family. I can't be appreciative enough for everyone making me feel at home. Next year can't come sooner, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there again!

For years I've watched The Cage videos on YouTube, wishing I could make it there one day. Last year I was able to make it, but as a bystander and member of The Box. This year, as an intern, I felt like I was a part of The Cage, and I still am so pumped about the opportunity I was given.

A HUGE thanks to J-Dawg, naturalguy and G-Diesel for giving me this opportunity to work for Animal and represent a brand I truly respect. Thank you to the head interns and the Animal staff for all of the behind the scenes work you guys do to make it happen and for showing me the ropes throughout the weekend. To the other interns and forum members, it was a pleasure to work with you and great to finally meet you guys in person and put a face to the names on here. And also to all of the athletes…putting your bodies on the line to make The Cage what it is.

This was the first time I was really able to feel apart of the Animal Family. I can't be appreciative enough for everyone making me feel at home. Next year can't come sooner, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there again!

From what I could tell you did great Brother and it was good meeting you. Always great to put a face to the name.
