Robert W. Johnson II, NASM Elite Trainer

Bio

My name is Robert Johnson.  I am an NASM Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Corrective Exercise Specialist, Performance Enhancement Specialist, Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Specialist and Senior Fitness Specialist.  After serving ten years in the US Navy, which included a tour of duty in the Red Sea during the first Gulf War, I returned home, and focused on a new mission - earning my degree.  I earned bachelors degrees in Education with a focus in Psychology from Georgian Court University. I’ve always enjoyed an active lifestyle.  But after suffering an injury, I lost my ability to remain active.  I gained weight.  I lacked energy. But most importantly, I lost self-esteem and confidence.  I decided it was time to do something about it.  My initial goal in becoming a certified trainer was to develop tools and knowledge that would help me get healthy again. But not surprisingly given my background of service and education, I soon developed a passion for teaching others to change their lives through physical fitness.
 
For seven years I have been working with a very diverse group of clients, designing individualized programs using NASM’s  OPT (Optimal Performance Training) model. I am also an experienced and certified TRX Trainer. When I am not training clients, or spending time with my baby girl, I love to mountain bike and ski.

I believe that everyone can be healthy, but sometimes, like I did, people need some instruction, and some help.  I can help teach you how to take control of your health, your fitness, and your life.  Thank you.
