Group Fitness Instructor
Holistic Life, Career, & Executive Coach
My name is Tanya Johnson, and I am a certified holistic life, career, and executive coach who has dedicated her career of over 20 years to improve patient health outcomes within the health care industry. I currently work as a Director for a large healthcare corporation. I graduated with a BS in Business Management, became a certified coach through Goal Imagery Institute, an accredited International Coach Federation (ICF) program, and became a certified group fitness instructor through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). My specialty classes include: POUND®, Dance Party, and Strength.
From early childhood, weight issues have always been a challenge – the typical rollercoaster many of us go through. In 2018, I embarked on my own personal fitness journey that would change my life. I was a Type 2 diabetic with hypertension issues. What I didn't expect through this process, was that this would be the beginning of my own personal fitness journey to learn about myself, change bad habits, and develop positive lifestyle changes.
With the help of amazing coaches, I learned to own my decisions, create and maintain positive healthy habits, focus and go after my life passions, cope with grief, navigate through my fears of the unknown and life's uncertainties; remove the "mask" to become my authentic self; navigate through career changes, and enhance relationships just to name a few.
What I learned through my own personal fitness journey, is that "LIFE HAPPENS", good and bad, and it's up to ME to make the choices that lead me down the path I want to head in to continue living the life I want to live. Is my journey over? The answer is "no". I continue to evolve and change as obstacles come my way. I make choices that continue to move me forward vs. holding me back. I learned to be grateful and live each day better than the previous. My past educated me and created experiences that made me who I am today; however, the past doesn't define my future. The future is what I make of it from the choices I make each and every day. We can't change the past, but we can make choices that impact our future. I may make mistakes along the way, but the best part is, it doesn't have to be forever, I can always choose a NEW DIRECTION.
Using my expertise as a corporate executive and going through my own personal fitness journey; along with my professional fitness certifications, my goal is to partner with you in your path to identify obstacles standing in your way of reaching your fitness goals. Together, we will create an energized and fun environment to reach your desired goals.
