FIT, FINE & FAVORED
Beverly K. Johnson is widely regarded as a woman whose immeasurable drive in life has contributed mightily to her success.
Sustained success, to put it more precisely.
“I’ve always been a driven person,” Johnson, 47, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining how her competitive drive in life has helped propel her for her featured business venture. “Whatever I wanted to accomplish, I figured out how to achieve it. I’ve never been afraid of taking chances. After I earned my certifications and licenses, I didn’t have any doubts that I could make a difference to my clients.”
For Johnson, the impact she customarily has on her clients as the owner and CEO of Genesys Fitness has been nothing short of remarkable.
A Huntsville, Alabama-based venture that went into operations five years ago, Johnson’s Genesys Fitness has become a constant fixture, particularly as it pertains to empowering women with the foundation and roadmap to reclaim their identity. Generally, this is done through periodic customized coaching, fitness training, and self-care sessions.

Armed with several years of experience as a Zumba Fitness instructor, Johnson sensed all along her continuous influential impact included more than fitness training, especially when a memorable candid conversation with an exercise client vividly revealed that women in caretaker roles often forget about themselves, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of her company on its Facebook business page.
Interestingly, Genesys Fitness has been appropriately deemed a “safe space,” where women can routinely transform their mindset, body, and life, most notably in a caring and non-judgmental environment, Johnson said. In essence, through candid conversations and fitness training, women subsequently are empowered to reclaim their identity and unveil the strength inside.
A native of Mobile, Alabama, Johnson is an accomplished motivational life coach, fitness trainer and, much to her delight, a beloved “girlfriend of authority.”

To her credit, she thought it necessary to name her newly-established motivational fitness business Genesys Fitness, in large part because it signifies what she describes as a rebirth for the often “forgotten” woman, one who’s life has been mired by divorce, caretaker and empty-nester, she said.
“At GenFit, we believe self-care takes priority over caring for others because it is in caring for ourselves that we make the best caregivers,” Johnson said. “We believe that by helping women rediscover who they are after suffering a loss, she will be empowered to become her ideal self — physically, mentally, and emotionally.”
A business that services clients ranging mostly in ages 35-to-65, Johnson emphasized her personal mission as a thriving, progressive businesswoman is to fulfill the purpose for which God has created — and “blessed” — her.
“I believe that each of us has been given an assignment,” said Johnson said. “We often miss it because we compare it to others. I’ve always had a goal of empowering and uplifting women and GenFit has been a blessing.”
A U. S. Army veteran who is a graduate of Mobile’s Baker High School, Johnson earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from Alabama A&M University. Consequently, he acquired a Master’s in Human Resources Management from Florida Institute of Technology.
As for who were amongst those who greatly inspired her to move forward in the competitive world on entrepreneurship, Johnson wasted little time paying homage to the prominent Ernestine Shepherd, whom she labels one of her grandest “Sheroes.”
Currently 84 years of age, Shepherd is a globally-acclaimed bodybuilder who is famously known for being, at one point, the oldest competitive female bodybuilder in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010.
“From reading her story, it reminded me that it’s never too late to pursue your goals,” Johnson Shepherd, who is still very much active in her selected sport. “So, every time that I think that I’m too old to start something new, I remind myself that Mrs. Earnestine, (who) started modeling at age 79. Therefore, I have absolutely no excuse to get out of my comfort zone.”
As for her itinerary, Johnson will be participating in what is known as the “Well Women Wellness,” which has been dubbed a Virtual Open House that is scheduled to take place July 27 at 7 CST and will air live via Instagram.
Interestingly, Johnson hosts a weekly show called, “What’s the Tea,” which airs every Sunday via Facebook.
Given the immeasurable strides she’s made since the inception of Genesys Fitness, Johnson relishes the notion that her featured endeavor aligns with her divine purpose.
“In the last few months, we’ve been on an emotional roller coaster,” said Johnson, alluding the coronavirus global pandemic. “We’ve all experienced every emotion and struggling to make sense of what’s happening. I try to be mindful that we’re all dealing with life the best way we can. Having compassion can make a difference to someone.”
Appropriately and eloquently said by this beloved fitness extraordinaire, whose immeasurable drive in life has contributed mightily to her success.
Sustained success, to put it more precisely.
