Level Wellness is an online based coaching focusing on getting clients to their healthiest and happiest selves. Level Wellness was founded by Teresa Johnson in 2014 who is a certified nutritionist, personal trainer, and diet “survivor”.About Me
Since 2012, I’ve coached and trained clients from 8 to 80 years old in varying stages of health, including overweight children, young athletes, coma survivors, new moms and overweight and obese individuals.
Here’s what a few of them have to say about Level Wellness:
I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I have lost weight, gained it back and stayed on that roller coaster for as long as I can remember. Working with Teresa I learned that I needed to slow down and deal with my emotions towards eating and while I've had to make changes, I haven't needed to be perfect. I still eat foods I love, but have learned how to balance that out with healthy foods. I have loved working with someone like Teresa who has struggled with weight previously as well.
I started working with Teresa because I really wanted to start feeding my body better and I felt like I was missing some tools to make that happen on my own. Teresa wasted no time in giving me practical and accessible tips to begin incorporating in my daily life and with her help, I quickly realized some things that had held me back in the past: things like striving for perfection, trying for too much in too little time, and letting small hiccups derail my entire goal. Her weekly check-ins helped me focus on things I was doing well while tweaking what wasn't working and her weekend wellness videos were full of practical advice. One of my favorite things about working with Teresa and likely the thing that most set me up for success is that Teresa really works with the realities of your life and helps you find tools to navigate those realities, rather than telling you to change the realities. That in and of itself has put me in a position where I feel I can successfully reach my goals, regardless of what planned events or unexpected circumstances pop up in my daily life! I've worked with Teresa for three months now and the biggest reward is that I just simply *feel* better. Fewer headaches, fewer digestion issues, I almost never have a midday slump anymore...I'm thrilled with the progress I've made, thanks to my awesome coach!
I’ve known Teresa for a very long time and saw her transform from an unhappy, overweight individual to a driven, passionate coach that wants nothing more than to help others. Her life experience and passion is what makes her not only a top notch personal trainer, but more importantly, a wellness coach that truly understands how to help you reach your goals.
In 2011 I spent ten days in a coma and two months in the hospital. I had severe swelling in my brain, broke several bones in my face, my left wrist and dislocated my left shoulder along with tearing all the muscles and tendons away from the bone. I could not do anything physical for over a year due to my concussion and poor eyesight. I finally was able to start exercising in January of 2013. I started curling soup cans, my balance was so bad I had to walk with a cane. I started training with Teresa in March of 2013. At first we mostly just stretched and walked slowly on the treadmill. In November I was able to start bowling again. I was able to start bowling two nights a week, walk without a cane, and my balance is almost back to normal. Teresa has taken me from barely able to walk to being able to do almost everything I used to do. Teresa went grocery shopping with me and taught me what is good for me and what to stay away from. I have lost over fifty pounds and almost two inches off my waist. My body fat has gone from 33.9% to 24.3%. You will not find a trainer who cares more about their clients than Teresa.
There is one major thing that helped me go from starving to feeling satisfied and that is increasing my protein. Increasing your protein can help you combat hunger and not keep reaching for that next snack.Read More
