KJ Body Performance
Hello! My name is Kim Johansson and I am a year -85. I was like any teenager. When I started strength training, I weighed about 55kg and hated that I was so thin. Self-confidence was nowhere to be seen. I never liked being in the center of attention and really disliked all kinds of presentations or situations where I was in the center. I found magic as a 19-year-old and over time I got used to being in the center when I did magic, where I had self-confidence. I tried some educations but only in 2009 did I find something of interest. Massage therapist at a Swedish school in the Canary Islands.
After a few days there, I fell ill with something that much later turned out to be ulcerative colitis. An autoimmune intestinal disease that resulted in weight loss, stomach pain and a doctors who claimed that alcohol was the cause and my insurance company withdrew my insurance. 6 months later I got help when I was home again and the following year I started studying at Halmstad University in biomedicine with a focus on physical exercise. One year into my education, I had my second (and so far last) major relapse. This resulted in hospitalization, hormones all over the placce and side effects of medications.
Self-confidence deteriorated again and after my first panic attack during a presentation I was close to giving up the education as there were so many oral parts left. An understanding teaching staff tailored the rest of my education so I could complete it and slowly but surely I rebuilt my body which reduced my anxiety.
After a period when my medication ran out (one should not stop abruptly) and it took a long time before they managed to prescribe more, my symptoms worsened extremely. I could not take a walk without panic. Some days were worse, others better. During the better days, I took the opportunity to challenge myself in small steps. I was looking for situations that usually create anxiety as I could more easily handle them, accept them and understand that they have no effect on my life more than in my head.
I am not completely panic-free today, but so much so that I can live normally 99% of the time and I continue to work to be completely free again, as before 2010 and now I really want to help you with what I can to make it easier. My own training mainly involves Olympic lifting, also called weightlifting together with powerlifting. Incredibly fun and effective to become big & strong but above all keep my self-confidence! But as for everyone else, I have periods where I can not train as I intended e.g. so the right mental attitude is super important to continue to develop and not fall back into unhealthy behavior patterns at the same time as we need to adapt the training around life and not the other way around!
In 2020, I took the opportunity to certify myself as an online trainer from the Online Trainer Academy (OTA) and I am now studying Precision Nutrition level 1 (PN1). Constantly developing as a coach is something I am passionate about, you never become the perfect coach! Thanks to OTA and PN1, I can take my knowledge and not only develop it, but also realize how I convey it to my clients in the best way online. Hope to see you inside!
