Hello! My name is Johanna Wright, and I've been a certified personal trainer since 2011. I became a Master Trainer at a big box gym before going independent in 2013. I hold three NASM training certifications (Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, and Fitness Nutrition Specialist), though my degrees are in creative writing and screenwriting. I just moved back to the city after two years in New York getting an MFA at Columbia. Writing has helped me build solid communication skills as a trainer, and I love having a career separate from the literary and film worlds in which I get to share my passion for fitness.

My athletic background is in gymnastics, and I found personal training to be a natural fit. I have worked with different clients of all skill levels, and I enjoy providing individual guidance and accountability to those who want to make fitness a lifestyle. It's humbling to be able to be part of my clients' journeys, and I have the utmost respect for those who entrust me with developing their fitness programs. I especially enjoy demystifying the gym for those intimidated by it, but I also love pushing well-seasoned workout veterans to new levels.
