Jay Johnson is an award winning personal trainer, nutrition coach and fitness writer based out of Charlotte, NC. Training for twelve years, Jay has bettered the bodies of a wide variety of clientele from competitive bodybuilders (bodybuilding/physique/bikini/figure), to models for photoshoot prep, to professional strength and endurance athletes (NFL/NCAA/NASCAR/IMSA/World of Outlaws). In 2009, Jay obtained his BA in Psychology from East Carolina University while minoring in Biology. Jay’s writing can be found onBodybuilding.com, GeneticWAR.com and ElevateLifestyle.com addressing issues that many of us face in the gym ranging from motivation, to technique, to choosing the correct foods to eat on a daily basis. Jay’s training philosophies are one of a kind; reflecting years of research and much hands on testing in the gym, these newly developed techniques and principles aim to not only create a greater result, but to do so in a more user friendly and maintainable manner. Although very different, these unique training programs and techniques have built average bodies into obtained goals at a greatly accelerated pace when compared to our more traditional/outdated training protocols of the past. The best part of this specific, yet simple “finger swipe” style of training is that it is easier than ever for the client to reach their goals due to the simplicity of the execution, the moves and the easy learning curve of Jay’s programming for you, the client. Jay takes care of the science and you take care of the workouts which makes it not only more enjoyable to reach your goals, but easier to maintain that lifestyle once you get there! If you do exactly as your customized Workout or Nutrition plan requires you to do, you WILL NOT fail!
In 2011, Jay was inducted into top Charlotte, NC magazine, Elevate Lifestyle‘s Top 30 Under 30 (Top 30 Corporate/Volunteer/Entrepreneurial Leaders Under the Age of 30).
