I am an AFPA certified personal trainer since 2008. I've competed in women's bodybuilding and was successful in earning a Pro Bodybuilding card.
I strive to make my clients aware that losing weight and keeping it off must result in living a healthy lifestyle. One of my favorite sayings is..."eat to live, don't live to eat" which sums up my thoughts on our bodies. I also like to train and give my clients the tools to be able to venture on their own...in other words, I want my clients to no longer "need" a trainer.
My name is Karen Johnson. I am a competitive bodybuilder in the Women’s Physique division and have competed in the sport since I was in my early 20s. I am also a physical therapist assistant. Currently, I am working towards achieving my goal of becoming an IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness) professional athlete.
I haven’t always been physically fit, there was a time in my life after having children where I became extremely overweight. My husband and I decided to go on a weight loss journey by “Setting Goals High & Smashing them Together”.
We both made the decision that a significant lifestyle change was needed in order to accomplish our goals. Are you ready for CHANGE??? I would love to be your change maker. Nutrition is the foundation but cardio and resistance training are also key components to ensure success.
I am a tough trainer and I will support, encourage, and motivate you to be your best self. Now let’s get to work 💪🏼❤️.
