About TruFit Academy – How I Got Here & My Goals For You

about johnny els - online personal trainer

My name is Johnny Els. Here is more about TruFit Academy, my athletic background, and my goals for YOU!

I have been participating in competitive sports since I was 5 years old. A variety of sports, including Taekwondo, Baseball, Football, and Cross Country, lead me to Competitive Swimming when I was 13 years old. I swam Year-Round and ran Cross Country all through high-school. 

In 2013 and 2014 I swam on my College swim team and placed top 6 in the 200 Freestyle, 200 Backstroke, and 200 Butterfly at Collegiate Junior Nationals. I joined the Texas A&M Triathlon team in 2014 and also became the team's swim coach. That year, our team went on to placing 3rd at Collegiate Triathlon Nationals. 

One of my big dreams came true in 2016 when I completed my first Ironman Triathlon.

In 2017, I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology, with a focus in Sport Conditioning. Shortly after, I moved to Colorado to begin my personal training and swim coaching career. 

Today, I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and a Level 1 Swim Coach in Broomfield, Colorado. After a period of coaching swim teams and giving private swim lessons, I have started focusing more on online personal training.

Living a healthy lifestyle and staying dedicated to achieving my goals, is important to me. I have dedicated my life to help YOU achieve your health and fitness goals.   

My next personal goal:

  • Complete the Colorado Ironman Triathlon.

My goal for TruFit Academy:

  • Build a solid client base of people who take their health and fitness seriously and give them all the tools they need to achieve their fitness goals.
