My name is David Johns and I have witnessed first hand the importance of nutrition and exercise in promoting an overall healthy lifestyle. Weighing almost 290lbs at the age of 17 and not able to keep up with friends who were much more fit and active than me, I decided to make a change and turn things around in my life. I lost 120lbs with the right balance of nutrition and fitness and a reinvented attitude. I went from a 44” waist to earning the title of Mr. Teen Utah in 2003. I went on to win 7 natural bodybuilding titles before the age of 20. I also worked as a trainer in a gym for a year and realized that clients weren’t getting the results I knew they were capable of because of a lack of specific nutritional knowledge. I made the move to Total Health and Fitness which teaches a three-fold program that encompasses nutrition, fitness and supplements and have been educating clients on HOW AND WHY they need to eat and exercise to reach their goals. I have met with over 1,000 people with goals ranging from losing 100lb of fat weight to gaining muscle, to winning Olympic gold. My clients come in all shapes and sizes! I LOVE what I do because I make lives better each day in THE BEST facility in the state! I encourage anyone with a fitness/wellness goal to tour our facility and come in for a free introduction to see what a customized nutrition and fitness program can do for changing your life.
Certified Personal Trainer
I have always been fascinated by human health and performance and use the guidelines of proper nutrition and exercise to help clients reach their fullest potential. I hold a Bachelor’s in Nutritional Sciences, a degree exploring the relationship between food and human health on a molecular and practical level. I am a believer in the healing properties of proper nutrition which prompted me to obtain this degree. Proper nutrition not only assists in weight loss, but is important for every other aspect of human health. I have personally seen the effects of proper nutrition on diseases such as Type II diabetes, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, arthritis, digestive issues, skin conditions, and other common health concerns. In addition to nutritional training, I have extensive experience as a certified personal trainer, including experience as the Personal Training Manager at the University of Missouri. With knowledge and experience in both nutrition and exercise, I am well equipped to help my clients reach not only their weight-related goals, but their health-related goals as well. I aim to educate clients for life-long success and tailor each plan to each individual. The journey to health and wellness is an exciting one and I love being a part of that journey. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

My name is Kelcie George, I am happy to be a part of a team of Consultants and Certified Personal Trainers here at Total Health and Fitness.
My passion to be a part of such great work stemmed from playing soccer most of my life and living an active life. Although, it wasn’t until these activities and activity level, in general, dropped drastically did I fully start to grasp how important nutrition and exercise really is. After having graduated from college with my Associate of Health Science degree and had played soccer for two years while I was there, I had a rude wake-up call to my bad eating habits- yes it’s the classic has-been collegiate athlete story.
Thankfully I loved learning about nutrition and began to implement changes in my life that have brought me to where I am today, physically and mentally feeling better than I did even as a collegiate athlete. Through my own trial and error, the most important thing I have learned is that everyone is on their own journey. This is an often overlooked aspect when people are taking a big step to begin their health and fitness journey. I am very motivated by my clients and seeing them take the wonderful challenge of bettering themselves in a way that suits them as a person. Health takes on many names these days, my goal is to clear that up for every one of my clients- and help them see it through.

Consultant / Trainer
My name is Chrissy and I am a Registered Dietitian and personal trainer at Total Health and Fitness. My fitness journey started with the goal of optimizing my own physical health and improving my athletic performance. My principles have evolved to include the bigger picture of complete balanced health.
My love for nutrition and physical wellbeing stems from the belief that mental and emotional health are the foundation for total health. By changing our mind, we can change our body and by changing our body, we can change our mind. If we are literally made of the food we eat, nutrition is a part of all aspects of health.
I graduated from Idaho State with a Bachelor’s of Science in Dietetics and Biology. I continued my education at the University of Utah where I completed a graduate degree in Dietetics with an emphasis in nutrition education and research. My thesis work investigated treatment and prevention for diabetes using nutrition as well as how to change body composition by having complete nutrition.
Total Health and Fitness has provided me the platform to teach individuals using proven, effective methods to reach goals, maintain health, and decrease risk of metabolic health problems.
