PANELIST LINDSAY JOHNSON: CEO of Fitpros
As a former corporate Marketing Director, FitPros Founder, Lindsay (Bailey) Johnson has over a decade of experience building events and integrated campaigns, with a focus on retention to drive revenue. Similar to many people in the workforce, Lindsay hit a wall in her career. She was burnt-out from the unhealthy long-hours, eating lunch at her desk, then unconsciously snacking throughout the day. She felt a sense of guilt to step away from the office to workout. As a result, she left the comforts of a steady job, and set out on an unknown journey to find health and happiness.
Lindsay’s personal weight-loss of 45+ pounds ignited her drive to become a nationally certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach in January 2014. Recognizing the importance to connect the body and mind, she traveled to India for a 5-week intensive Yoga Teacher Training. Fascinated by the science of food and exercise to nourish the body, Lindsay strictly trained for 12-weeks with a loss of 11% body-fat and 18 pounds, prior to competing in her first bikini fitness competition in June 2015.
Following her Mother’s footsteps, Lindsay dreamt of owning a successful business. Little did she know her corporate career and more recent fitness passion would collide. Lindsay was referred by a former colleague to teach yoga at their workplace. Word spread, and Lindsay’s teaching gigs became so plentiful that she had to pass along classes to her teacher friends. Struck by a memory of a hodgepodge pedometer challenge at a past job, Lindsay tied it all together to identify a need and business opportunity for holistic fitness and health in the workplace.
Launched in January 2016, FitPros was formed to motivate health and happiness through physical movement and mindful education where people spend the most time – at work! FitPros will step in to support your company retain and recruit high-caliber employees, while positively impacting your bottom line savings through wellness programs at your location.
