Conversations with Myles Johnson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Myles Johnson.

Hi Myles, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I originally started in the business of training while finishing my last year of college in the year of 2015. However, I finally discovered my purpose in life in 2019. I wanted to leave a legacy in which I was remembered as someone who helped others in all aspects of life. I started off small and fed the homeless around my community and was fortunate enough to get connected with a food bank which allowed me to expand my giving to surrounding areas. Doing this aside from my physical training with individuals really allowed me to discover a different meaning in life, and that’s uplifting others in anyway possible.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The road has been fairly smooth I’d like to say. I got my first bit of experience in 2019 when myself and a business partner took over a local gym. In the beginning, it was tough because I was new to the facility and I didn’t have much credibility with clients so I had to gain the trust and respect of others. Also dealing with a business partner that didn’t share the same beliefs as me made it difficult to succeed. The first pandemic that hit was almost like a blessing because he (my business partner) decided to exclude himself from the situation, and I was able to group with a fantastic group of individuals. Since then, my client base has increased and I continue to see an abundance of opportunities.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I love this question. A little back story, someone once asked me what it is that I do and I had no answer for it. It took me to really realize and ask myself what do I want to be remembered as when I’m gone. Not until then was I able to discover my purpose. Now I can finally say I help people and I love it. My speciality is physical training and sports conditioning. My saying is “what you put in is what you get out,” meaning the work, food, knowledge, etc. that you allow yourself to gain is what you will give off to others. I am most proud of myself for the moments when I don’t feel like getting up yet I still get the job done no matter what. I much rather give a person my arm then watch them struggle in life. I am different than others because I give my all in everything I do, and I am passionate about seeing others succeed. My positive energetic attitude allows me to pour into others and bring the best out of them.

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
My father absolutely deserves credit in my journey. He has always guided me and showed me opportunities that allowed me to gain experience and knowledge. I am still a work in progress when it comes to the business side of things and he has always been there to mentor me. He made me chief of operations for his nonprofit organization (Dnick24academy) a program that allows us to feed schools and parks in the Southbay area. His leadership and optimistic attitude rubbed off on me in the most incredible way. So I am grateful to have him be a huge part of my journey.
