About Me


My name is Johanna AKA ‘growwithjo’. I am a fitness enthusiast who strives daily to encourage the world to keep moving.

I previously battled with being overweight and uncomfortable in my own skin. Over time, I found ways to overcome this battle and now my goal is to help others who are wanting to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle.

I have been working as a personal trainer and coach since 2013. I attended McMaster Universityy in Hamilton, Ontario where I studied Kinesiology. I was a team lead in Strength and Conditioning for the Athletics department. 

Part of my journey includes competing in 3 bikini shows; and subsequently placing top 5 in my final show.  

My new lifestyle includes teaching, leading and inspiring movement and growth in the lives of others
