ISSA Certified Personal Trainer.
Johnny, a retired Marine, has been training under the International Sports Sciences Association for over three years. Originally from Quincy, Illinois, he has spent eight years in the military, which allowed him to travel and live all over the world. Fitness has been both a passion and a daily staple of Johnny’s life, which led him to begin personal training. While stationed in Okinawa, Japan, he completed over three full marathons. Though he describes his first race as an extremely painful endeavor due to his lack of experience, Johnny fell in love with the challenge of pushing past one’s perceived limits. His personal goal is to assist with as many fitness transformations as possible and to inspire others to embrace a healthy lifestyle that includes many different types of daily fitness activities. Among Johnny’s training experience is his time spent in the United States Marine Corps as a Martial Arts Instructor, where he earned his 1st degree Black Belt in the Marnie Corps Martial Arts program. He is honored to say that he trained over 200 subordinates and superiors. His favorite quote is, “One day you won’t be able to do this. Today is not that day!”
