Karissa Johnson

Forest Lake, MN 55025

My name is Karissa Johnson and I am nationally certified through the American Council on Exercise as both a Personal Trainer and a Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant. I am also a Certified Nutrition Specialist through the American Academy of Sports Dieticians and Nutritionists. Additionally I am a certified Group Fitness Instructor (YMCA), BodyPump instructor (Les Mills), Golf Conditioning Specialist (GMP), and stay current in CPR/AED through the Red Cross. I have a B.S. in Kinesiology, emphasis fitness/wellness, from the University of Minnesota, and numerous continuing education credits in nutrition, supplements, weight loss, bodybuilding, health counseling, and more. I began Premier Physique in 2001 as a way to independently pursue my passion for fitness and helping others. In 2007 I began offering group fitness classes for moms. After 3 babies in 4 years, how else was I going to get my workout in?! It has been incredibly rewarding to help so many other women in this stage of life get back into shape, make lifelong friends and workout buddies, and achieve feelings of accomplishment from their success.

I will work with you one-on-one or in a group setting to motivate you to reach the results you've been waiting for! I look forward to helping you reach your personal fitness goals.
