SIMPLY AMAZING .........Jochebed Johnson of TrioFit (TrioFitology) Unveiled & Speaks of HER Passions



Today we’d like to introduce you to Jochebed Johnson.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jochebed. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I like to say I was born in Nigeria, raised in South Africa, currently flourishing in South Florida but definitely a citizen of the universe. I moved to South Florida when I was 18 and by the age of 20, I’d graduated with my first degree and was actually working on my second one. I’d also got married at 20, and at 21, I had my son and that’s when I decided that if I was ever going to build a legacy that my son would be proud to uphold, now would be a great time to start. So, I quit my full-time job, opened my business but also got a super part-time job at a gym due to my interest in fitness. At the time, I decided to open a cleaning company, just to prove to myself that I was capable of building something from the ground up as I’ve always dreamed I’d be able to. The company grew, I had a few people working for me and everything was going great until, out of nowhere my mom got diagnosed with stage 5 metastatic lung cancer (someone who’d never smoked a day in her life!) and unfortunately, she passed away a few days later.
At this time, I’d gotten promoted at the gym from front desk to assistant manager and after 30 days of being the assistant I was promoted to general manager, as a general manager, I was the manager of the month three months in a row and my sales were through the roof. Things were going great, however, the loss of my mom was still a hard pill to swallow, in fact, her death taught me two very important lessons:
1. Life’s too short to be doing anything that you’re not truly passionate about, so I sold my cleaning company in hopes of chasing something much bigger.
2. Health and wellness are of utmost importance. Even though an individual appears fine doesn’t mean they actually are. Therefore, we – every single one of us must learn to practice wellness before illness sets in and that’s when I had the bright idea to open up my own gym/wellness center. A place where people could come to daily and practice wellness to help fight and prevent illnesses, stay in shape and actually be held accountable! I immediately started working on my certifications and in no time I not only had the experience and the knowledge I needed but also the passion. With each new client, my passion only becomes greater, suddenly after being in the fitness industry for all these years it felt like I was truly making a difference. I mean you should hear some of my client’s testimonials, being taken off blood pressure pills, no longer having to get insulin shots because I’ve been able to help them stay active, make healthier nutritional choices and so much more. We’re combating illness with wellness and it’s the most gratifying feeling in the world and today I’m proud to say I no longer work at a gym but actually run my own!
Has it been a smooth road?

Getting to where I am today certainly hasn’t been a walk in the park, but when it comes to dealing with adversity, and believe me I’ve faced quite a few! I have a pretty simple way of looking at it. And that’s to ask myself the question “What’s the lesson?” there’s a lesson to be learned from every difficult situation. So the way I see it, I never lose, I either win or I learn. Every struggle, every lesson learned was necessary to get me to where I am now, so believe it or not, I am actually grateful for all the bumps in the road, they made the journey more exciting.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I pride myself in helping people look good, feel better and perform at their absolute best and one of my favorite ways to do this is through my company TrioFit, which in order to truly embody what the brand is about will soon be undergoing a name change. TrioFit is becoming Triofitology – the art of keeping your mind, body, and soul in perfect health. What might have started out as an idea for a wellness studio/gym has now evolved into a wellness system that focuses on taking a holistic approach to health and fitness by concentrating not only on the physical but also the mental/emotional and spiritual well-being of an individual. Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, the primary goal of Triofitology is to create a place where you can come to empower yourself on a daily basis. It’s a safe haven that serves its community and nurtures people, just like you into becoming the best version of themselves. During a typical week at Trio, a wide variety of mind/body private and group workout training sessions, yoga and massage treatments are offered in a fun, loving environment, to ensure that every client is being equipped with all the tools that are required to help them keep their mind, body, and soul in perfect health. With a professional staff that includes, certified personal trainers, nutritionists, yoga instructors, massage therapists, and life coaches. Here, you can find more services than the average “gym” or health club has to offer. My company is able to provide the ultimate fitness experience, because it combines several fitness and wellness services under one roof, for your convenience. Most people want to stay healthy but have a problem doing so because they don’t have someone to hold them accountable, we solved that problem too by creating a wellness community, that way each client has a dozen accountability partners. Of all my business ventures, Triofitology has certainly been my greatest thus far.
When you look back, what are you most proud of?

Honestly, I get to live my proudest moment every single day when I open the doors at TrioFit, just being able to help and impact so many peoples lives on a daily basis is a dream come true for me. However, about two months ago, I hosted a wellness workshop on April 7th (World health day) to celebrate my one year business anniversary, don’t get me wrong, I had help in the beginning but what started as a three-woman team eventually turned into a one-woman show and the fact that I was able to, not just successfully but also, single-handedly pull off this event made me ecstatic. I collaborated with some of South Florida’s top wellness professionals and the turn out of my community was impressive. While celebrating with me, everyone in attendance had a phenomenal time learning the importance of keeping their minds, bodies, and souls in perfect health. I couldn’t have been more proud!
