The man behind the ‘Seal of Fitness’ business and loads of endorsements by satisfied fitness clients, Rod Johnson is also one of the most knowledgeable and sought after personal trainers in metro Atlanta.
In 2000, he was voted runner-up to the Fittest Male in Atlanta by Atlanta Sports and Fitness Magazine.
As a fitness consultant, wellness coach, and journalist, Johnson walks the walk when it comes to balancing the mind, body and soul. He says ‘boredom’ is a common threat to any fitness routine, which is why he focuses on his clients needs and temperament to help them meet their goals.
One principle Rod subscribes to is this…“If the nutrition is not correct, training is a complete waste of time”
Johnson’s personal training business, Seal Of Fitness, offers endurance and strength training, body sculpting, and even nutritional coaching. Clients get the benefit of Rod’s corporate experiences with fierce training techniques. There are a range of services and consultation is available for everyone from housewives, professionals, athletes, college students, to executives.
“I look at the age and the individual, there are some people who are 70 years old, and do things 40 year old do. Consistency is the hardest part, Clients tend to make excuses about working out. I deal with clients with high level careers.”
Even if you have a gym membership but the routine is inconsistent, Rod has a recommendation to get back on track. “I recommend starting off with brisk walking 3-4 times a week, then increase your time. I recommend they invest in some 10Ib dumbbells. They can easily find workout forms and routine information online.”
Rod spends his spare time teaching others about fitness through workshops. “I enjoy the camaraderie with my clients, I truly enjoy helping people”
