Johnna is a quiet lion.  She walks in with a smile, and works hard, giving everything she has. Her efforts have resulted in dramatic increases in strength and body composition. She is leaner, faster and fitter.

Johnna , is a true “small town girl”, having been raised in a small town in Missouri. She attended a small school, graduating with only 29 kids! During high school, she played volleyball and basketball, but her school didn’t have softball, so she played on a little league team during the summers. She now lives in Rockledge where she loves to spend time with her family and watch her kids play sports. She also likes to see, and we have reports that she is an excellent cook.

A business and FACS teacher at Rockledge High School, Johnna heard about CrossFit from a her friend and colleague, Christine Kearns, who “Talked about CrossFit all the time.”  When CrossFit OutSpoken opened near her home, she decided to give it a try. She’s been hooked ever since.

Her original goals were to be happy with her body and feel confident in the clothes she wore. She has been quite successful towards these goals; she feels better a out her body, she isn’t as self-conscious, and she likes how much stronger she feels, both physically and mentally.  When asked about what accomplishments she is most proud of, she said she was very proud of being able to Rx one or two WODs, and added, “I did a double under!”

Johnna also showed an amazing transforming after partaking in the 90 Day look, Feel and Perform Better Challenge!! Her performance went through the roof, she became super lean and most importantly learned how to maintain a healthy lifestyle! Check out her before and after pictures below, talk about inspiring!!

When asked if she had anything to add, Johnna said, “Thank you CrossFit Outspoken for helping me through a tough time in my life. I know I would have lost my sanity a long time ago, but CFOS is a good release for me. I look forward to WODing everyday and when I don’t, I feel horrible. I’m so addicted to this community. When I finally move back to Missouri in May of 2015 and my family is whole again, I know I will have an empty place in my heart because CFOS is missing. Thank you everyone for everything!”


Johnna always striving for Virtuosity in her movements! This is just another prime example!! Beautiful Overhead Squat!

Johnna has been a wonderful addition to CrossFit OutSpoken, and we wish her a happy and successful future. She will be missed, but, no matter where she WODs, she will always be part of our CFOS Crew.
