Amanda Johnson

Assistant Head Coach, Head Gymnastics Coach


My name is Amanda and I am an Air Force veteran, a Crossfit Coach, a Gymnastics Coach, a mom, and a wife.

I’m originally from New Jersey but have also had the pleasure of living in California, Missouri, Georgia, Guam, and South Dakota.

My family and I have lived here for over 5 years, and love it. I’m married to my husband/best friend Mike who is currently serving in the United States Air Force. Together we have two girls Lilyanna and Gabriella, and a German Shepherd named Gus.

I was a Gymnastics Coach for 8 years, both competitively and recreationally and was introduced to Crossfit and I fell in love! 3 years ago I found CrossFit Stimulus and knew this was the home I was looking for! I love coaching Crossfit Gymnastics, Group Classes, and also Personal Training. I enjoy helping people realize their potential and I am a firm believer that it is never too late to start your physical fitness journey!
