Aaron Johnson Fitness Club
I am a Louisiana native with a vision of educating and influencing the world of fitness, health, and wellness. My focus is on students ages 6-18 and adults ages 50 and older, because these age groups demonstrate a special hunger to become more fit, both in mind and body. It is my pleasure to serve them. Will you assist me?
My interest in fitness began as a child. At 8 years old I participated in my first competitive athletic experience, as the quarterback of my youth flag football team in Ruston, Louisiana. Like other children enrolled in athletic endeavors, I learned leadership, teamwork, and dedication, but for me these would be my lifelong passions. As a middle school sports star athlete, I played football and basketball, and I ran track. I learned to believe in myself, something I would later teach my clients.
Although I had two loves, football and basketball, I chose to play college football. My childhood dream came true when I received a full athletic scholarship to play football at Grambling State University under head Coach Doug Williams, Super Bowl XXII Most Valuable Player. After four years of play, injury, multiple knee surgeries, multiple championships, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology, I decided to forego my senior season of football to attend graduate school at Louisiana State University.
As a graduate assistant intern for the 2005-2006 Sugar Bowl Champion the LSU Tigers football team, I worked in the Office of Recruiting. I worked closely with coaches and staff, high school football recruits, their families, and fans. In 2006 I graduated with a Master’s of Science degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Sports Administration.
Between my injuries, successes, and degrees, I developed a strong understanding of fitness psychology and the way the mind and body work together to heal. Since then, my career has been a great journey.
Since 2008, my companies have partnered with, sponsored, or volunteered with over 43 non-profit organizations in Louisiana and Texas. Since 2012, AJFC fitness programs have safely completed over 120,000 workouts through personal training and group fitness training classes.
For the school year of 2014-15, Irving Independent School District presented the Skate Buds® product within their elementary school P.E. programs. Since August 2014, an estimated 40,000 workouts have been performed using Skate Buds Strap-on Heel Skates® in Irving ISD.
In 2016, I began self-publishing inspirational books for students 6-18. My first self-published book, Do You Know How to Overcome Fear, for ages 6-8, empowers students to speak, think, act, and feel in a way that allows them to overcome all fears. My second publication, How to Be a Super Human Being: Don’t be a Dumb Jock, inspires athletes and non-athletes to become Super Human Beings using the power of sports to develop the connection of the mind, body, and emotions.
Since January 2011, Aaron Johnson and Aaron Johnson Fitness Club have sincerely served the Dallas, Fort Worth community through health and fitness products and programs for students’ ages 4 – 95 years.
