At Mindful and Fit Coaching, we offer coached personal training geared toward advancing the human condition in all aspects of mind, body, and spirit. We are not your average fitness bootcamp. Each session includes guided meditation and a stretching and reflection cool-down time at the end. Each client is encouraged to journal each day with the goal of identifying your negative, self-limiting beliefs – working with a coach who will offer strategies for systematically reframing those into positive, life-affirming beliefs. In addition, you will receive individualized instruction from one of the nation’s elite fitness trainers, Tony Johnson, who transformed his own life in 2010 and has since helped 1,000’s of people do the same.
