About Us

I’m Donna, the Founder of Donna Johnson Personal Training.IMG_2476[1273]

I’m a lifelong fitness enthusiast and have been fortunate enough to turn my own hobby into a fulfilling and rewarding career. Having spent over 10 very enjoyable years working in the Education and Cultural sectors, in many different senior leadership roles, I found the true meaning of ‘living to work’ not ‘working to live’ in the world of fitness. My scientific and academic background, combined with professional workplace coaching experience, are all attributes that I use in my dedicated approach to my clients.

I believe that exercise should be inclusive not exclusive and staying fit and healthy should be enjoyable not a chore.  Easier said than done? Well, it all starts with a simple decision to move more, eat well and be happy.

I feel privileged when I work with clients and witness changes. Not just physical change but importantly changes in confidence, motivation and lifestyle. I think I’ve done my job properly when clients are happy, fit and empowered to maintain their hard-earned successes independently.

If you’d like to have a chat about how I can support you with your fitness and nutrition, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!
