Health and Fitness with Cailean Johnson


Born in San Jose, CA, I grew up playing every sport possible. At a young age I had a passion for athletics and fitness, playing on many soccer and baseball teams. When high school rolled around I knew my first true sporting love was baseball. During High School I played baseball for a nationally ranked team. In the early 90's, I attended the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Program. After Graduating in "92" I attended a local College.

I played college baseball and played in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, before returning to play baseball in the US. After my baseball career ended I was accepted into the Kinesiology program at Cal State University, East Bay (Formerly Hayward). After I graduated in "99" with a BS in Kinesiology I went into the education field and became a Physical Education Teacher.

In 2001, I entered the health and fitness world as a Personal Trainer at All American Fitness in Oklahoma City. Six months later I became the Assistant General/Fitness Manager. In 2002, I was given the opportunity to return to the West Coast to work as General Manager for Allstar Fitness, Seattle.

Two years later, in 2004, I returned to teaching Physical Education at Evergreen Academy in Bothell. I continued providing personal training services to my clientele outside of my teaching role as this fulfilled my passion to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle. This brings us to today.

I love Cailean Johnson's

I love Cailean Johnson's Fitness show, can he talk about should we change our diet with the seasons, spring,summer,winter,fall and why?

What a great question. I

What a great question. I have a son who is 8 and he loves to exercise. Workouts for younger kids should mainly focus on cardio activity. Doing exercise such as swimming, biking, hiking and sports activities such as soccer for 60 minitues a day will give kids a great foundation and are fun and heart healthy. Doing body weight exercise like squats, push ups and sit ups are all fun too. The key is to make sure they build a solid foundation, balance and a strong core. Doing family fun workout/exercise challenges are great to do. Something my family and I do are scavenger hunts with exercise challenges at the park. We will create a list of things to find at the park and exercises to accomplish, it's a lot of fun. Just remember to make it fun when the whole family is involved.

Thanks for listening

Cailean, as a parent of kids

Cailean, as a parent of kids under 10 what kind of work out do you suggest to include them and if my wife is not into fitness what can we do for a work out ,spend some time together but not scare her and the kids off. Your program is great, it not only answers questions but make me think more about fitness and I find the information you have given is answering a lot of concerns and questions as they come up. Keep up the good work.
