One of my goals for 2017 was to work with a fitness trainer. I was inspired to try this after my friend Sherrill Miller arrived at a function looking so splendid. She attributed much of how she was looking and feeling to time spent with her fitness trainer.
So, I have been spending time with Jan Johnson at Grand Bahamas Fitness and I love it! Now it helps that Jan gets me, that she is respectful and knowledgeable and that we laugh.
There were some things I didn’t know about Jan. When I asked her for some info about her for this blog, as well as a photo, I discovered that she is a fitness trainer and a body-building champion. As she said in her note to me:
I am an International Bodybuilding & Fitness Competitor. I have had a lot of experience in the fitness industry. I have competed while representing the Bahamas in numerous bodybuilding and fitness shows around the world. I am currently the Asst. Coach for the Bahamas Bodybuilding and Fitness National Team. I can honestly say that I enjoy helping others achieve their fitness goals.
Jan also has an interest in helping pre-adolescent and adolescent girls live healthy lives and make good decisions. She’s looking at more ways of supporting young women in the future and I look forward to our ongoing conversations about this.
Making progress towards goals and connecting with others is life giving and for me, a path to resilience.
More on Sherrill Miller: One of Sherrill’s gifts is her inspirational talk on the topic of The Gift of Change.
