The Fit Life

Private Personal Training ~ Fitness & Nutrition support that fits your life.

Who am I?


My name is Crystal Johnson, I am a wife, Mother of 3 wonderful sons, and complete health nut and Fitness Addict. I grew up in a very small town in East Texas and I currently live in McAllen, Tx where I operate The Fit Life Gym which is a Private training gym. 


Everyone asks how I got started into this wonderful journey in 2013. I was a retail district manager for many years, which is a very high stress job, I was tired all the time, sick all the time, frustrated all the time because I had no time for anything, and no energy. I basically functioned on q tacos and energy drinks. I have struggled with weight and health all of my life. I was constantly sick as child as well. I was about a year into trying to lose a little weight (very unsuccessfully I might add.). I was working out alot, used a "gym trainer" a few times but still got no results, only more frustration (my wallet did lost weight LOL). So one night with a glass of wine in hand for courage, I sat down with my amazing husband that I mentioned earlier and told him I needed a change, a drastic and immediate change. With his complete blessing and support the next day, I quit a very successful career and immediately enrolled in school(s) to learn anything and everything I could about fitness, nutrition, health, supplements, etc. 


As I learned, I put it all to use and watched as the inches melted away, my health improved dramatically, my energy levels skyrocketed, and I was happy and in a better mood. I figured out that it is not as hard as everyone makes it seem, It is honestly about knowledge, knowing what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. That's when I decided I wanted everyone to accomplish what I had accomplished on a personal level so I started The Fit Life. It is about living an all around fit life, it is not just about exercise. Now I get to enjoy spending lots of time with my sons and I get to help people. I finished school about a year ago, but continue to learn everyday. Why? well because I want to continue to grow as a person, but also because I want you to be successful. The more knowledge I have to offer, the better and faster you get results. Why do I charge less than most, well, traditionally private trainers are only for the wealthy. I want everyone and anyone who wants to be healthy to see success not frustration, not just the wealthy people. I love what I do, I care about every single person who comes to me for help. I have a daily blog on Facebook where I share some of this knowledge, so I invite you to like the page so you can benefit even if you are not training with me. The link to my blog is at the bottom of this page.
