Testimonials:

"A year and a half ago, I was privileged to become teammates with Betsy. Little did I know that becoming teammates would eventually lead to a great friendship and what I like to think of as my secret weapon to getting my life back on track. About a year ago, I went for a swim workout and sat on the side of the pool deck with no energy or desire to even get into the water, and it was then that I reached out to Betsy for advice and help. I was once a stubborn, underweight athlete striving to reach tough goals without one key ingredient: nutrition. With Betsy’s patience, persistence, and care, I am not only an athlete that understands how to fuel and recover to become stronger each day, but I am a person who has the energy to teach, coach, train, and live each day to the fullest. Betsy patiently but persistently pushed me out of a hole that included little nutrients and lots of training, and she taught me how to properly fuel and recover each day with the proper amount of nutrition. The care, support, and encouragement that Betsy gives each day are things that are rare to find and things I struggled to find for a long time. Betsy did not give me a short term “fix” to my health and nutrition, but she gave me the best gift I could ever ask for: a foundation for a lifetime. I am beyond grateful that our paths crossed, as I would not be where I am today in each aspect of my life without her. Betsy is the best!" - Ashley Powell, competitive athlete

"I have been running for 37 years, some of those running years better than others, but none as good as this past year. I have always had the dream of qualifying for the Boston marathon but have never come close. That changed for me this year, at age 57. Why now? Because of Betsy Johnson.  Betsy has worked with people close to me and the results were amazing. I knew she could help me, so I scheduled a meeting and we got to work. She dove in immediately, gathering key information that would result in a plan that focused on the physical, nutritional and mental aspects that would help me succeed. Leading up to this year, my fastest marathon time was in 2003 at 3h:52m. I’ve run seven slower marathons since then, but on May 15, 2016, I ran 3h:39m! My qualifying time for Boston is 3h:40m. So, after 37 years of running and 11 marathons, it took Betsy only 6 months to develop and implement a plan to dramatically improve my fitness level and running performance.  Betsy attacks her work with a passion that is contagious. Her daily coaching and positive encouragement are the difference makers on those days that I really don’t want to get of bed and do the work. I would encourage anyone that is serious about improving their quality of life through proper nutrition and exercise to call on Betsy. I promise that you will not be disappointed." – Kirk Icuss, lost 25 pounds and increased his speed

"I competed in my first Ironman 70.3 in April 2014, one week before my 30th birthday. As a lifelong swimmer and marathon runner, it was a big goal of mine. While I felt conditioned for the physical challenges of the race, I worried about maintaining my stamina, having never been given formal education on proper nutrition. Having personally witnessed Betsy's success as an Ironman athlete, I immediately turned to her for guidance and nutrition coaching. I now wish I had talked to her years ago when I first began competing in marathons. She gave me the specifics on proper diet while training and knew exactly what I needed to do to maintain and maximize my energy throughout my race. Not only did I have a step by step plan for the competition but I also received insight that can only come from someone who has competed at this level before. I have since been encouraging athletes interested in distance competitions to make nutrition a cornerstone of preparation and to seek the expertise of professionals like Betsy Johnson. I plan to return to the Ironman competitions in 2016 and will be working closely with Betsy to keep me strong and improve on my past performance." - Ryan Conner, competed in first Ironman 70.3 race

"My husband and I completed the Houston Avon 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer. The event involved walking 39.3 miles in two days, 26.2 miles on Saturday and 13.1 on Sunday across Houston. Finishing in the top 100 out of several thousand on both days. Our ability to finish strong was due to our preparation and in no small part, to our knowledge of what to consume during the walk. The credit of knowing what nutrients to consume during training and the event goes to Betsy Johnson. Betsy not only prescribed how often to hydrate, but also on specific nutrients to consume before and during the walk. The conditions were wet and hot at times, but we remained strong throughout. We feel that with Betsy's guidance, we were able to complete the walk with a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Any future events we attempt we will definitely consult with Betsy!" - Carol Conner, walked 39.3 miles in 2 days
