She has said her goal is to improve the health and wellness – physically and spiritually – of others, one community at a time.
On Aug. 8, Johnson kicks off a “Transform in 21” challenge on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. Detailed weekly instructions will be posted on her website.
At age 17, Johnson lost her mother to cancer and her father several years later. She has been a spokeswoman for the American Cancer Society, hosted the VH1 reality fitness competition “From Flab to Fab” and conducts numerous magazine interviews, as well as television and personal appearances, to promote healthy living.
On his death bed, Johnson’s father told her, “You’re not able to save me, but take all of who you are and what you know and go save the world.”
Johnson majored in psychology and chemistry major at Spelman College in Atlanta, Ga. , graduating Magna cum Laude in Psychology, but she chose Hollywood over med school, found a job within two months of her arrival and has been working ever since.
Johnson also hosts seminars and classes for corporations and magazines and even led a group of celebrity clients in sunrise yoga classes during an island retreat. She has taken her talents to a wide range of venues, including Spelman College, the CIAA Conference, the Black Lawyers Association, the Black MBA Association and the Proctor & Gamble My Black Is Beautiful tour.
Her celebrity clients include actress Gabrielle Union, NBA star Dwayne Wade, entertainers Chaka Khan, Beyonce, India Arie, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
Testimonials on Johnson’s website, range from people who lost weight because they wanted to look better to a woman who, with her doctor’s supervision, is on track to get off blood pressure medication by following the plan.
“I’ve just been helping people get healthy, stay healthy. So THE AJ ZONE is where you go to get your better,” Johnson told Hello Beautiful in an interview.
“I think too many people try to diet. That’s not what THE AJ ZONE is about. It’s about living a healthy lifestyle. So when you choose better you are better.”
