“Over the course of several years I worked with Derrick Johnson to help build up my core strength and overall fitness. During that period he also helped me get through a dark year of surgery and chemotherapy following a cancer diagnosis.
In my work I often spend eight or more hours a day at the computer. I have also had life-long issues with neck and back pain from a childhood accident. Derrick helped me to overcome weaknesses developed from bad posture and injury, and also to vastly improve both overall fitness and specific muscle strength. Thanks to the information and exercises he gave me, I’ve gained more strength, flexibility, and energy than I’ve had in years.
During my cancer treatments Derrick developed a specialized plan that helped me stay active, even on days when just walking a block or two was a major challenge. I’m confident that he helped me get through, and emerge from, my fight with cancer in far better shape than I’d have been alone.
Derrick is not only a very talented and motivating trainer – someone who knows what he’s doing and why – but he is also a really good and really interesting guy. I greatly enjoyed getting to know him. I deeply appreciate his guiding my workouts through both good times and bad. And I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone serious about their training who also wants to enjoy the ride.”
