ELIZABETH JOHNSEN
August 28, 2018

Elizabeth has been such a bright light at CorePhysique. She always comes in ready to work and never complains about being in the gym. As trainers, we love when she shows up for a class. She always gives the gym a positive vibe. Although she has only been with us a short time, you can see how she has transformed into a more confident person—proud of what she has already accomplished at the gym! We are proud of you too Elizabeth!

Tell Us A Bit About Yourself  
I am 42 years old, originally from South-Africa my husband and I moved to Alpharetta 6 years ago with 3 of our children, Christiaan (15) Estelle (13) and Heinrich (8), we were planning on an adventure for 6 months and ended up loving the community so much we stayed, we now also have a 2 year old little American, Nicolaas. I used to work for the questioned document unit as a forensic analyst, before children, but I’ve been a full-time mom for the last 15 years. Having a baby at 40 was the hardest thing I have ever done, honestly after 2 years I was feeling discouraged, tired, overweight and weak..I saw an advertisement for a Six-Week Challenge on Facebook and made a decision to give it a try.
