As most of you know, we offer a multitude of services under
our roof: Personal Training, Pilates, Chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology,
Acupuncture, Nutritional Services, Muscle Activation Techniques, Golf Analysis/Instruction,
Massage, Reiki Massage, Photography. In addition, everyone under our roof owns
and operates their own respective business; everyone is an Independent
Contractor or a Tennent. Over the past 3 years of being in operation, business
grows by the week and the uniqueness of our Facility and the services we
provide spreads throughout South Johnson County, not from advertising, but
almost entirely by word of mouth, and for that we thank you!
One area we are attempting to improve upon however, is
referrals amongst our different offerings. This begins with each Practitioner,
Trainer, and Therapist knowing in depth each other’s services, collaborating
with each other, and feeling confident to refer their patient or client to
them. Our goal is to become more of a cohesive unit rather than stuck in our
own areas of the Facility with our own clients. Most importantly, with your optimal
health as our primary goal, we feel that picking up or adding an additional
service to your Fitness and Wellness journey would be of huge benefit to you. Diversify
your Fitness and Wellness strategy if you will. And, we will be offering as an
incentive 25% off the second or third service in attempt to get you to try
If you are coming here for Personal Training, why not try a
Pilates class with Erin, Angie, or Shannon? Are you seeing Kirk Johnson for
Chiropractic Care and play Golf? Why not see Janine and have her analyze your
swing to improve your game? Who doesn’t like a Massage? Heather is also a
practicing Registered Nurse, think she’s qualified? A nagging shoulder Injury?
Stop in and chat with Andrew in our Physical Therapy Clinic to see what
thoughts he has. Jourdan and Adi have you covered with Nutrition, food
accountability, food prep, and Integrative Nutrition. Muscle Activation Techniques
with Ryan Kerola is a detailed and explorative therapy route to address and
eliminate muscle weakness and pain. Sherri is one of the most talented
photographers I’ve met. Check out her work in the entry. The Isophit, and its
tremendous benefits in Neuro-Integration is a great session in itself. Have
Melanie or Liz run you through. From Personal Training to Boxing and Small
Group Training, we in the Gym have a program and budget for everyone. Grab one
of our cards in the lobby and shoot us an email.

Changes in the Air!
One of the main reasons I constructed Fitness Alliance in
2014 was to increase services I did not offer to Clients. As a Personal Trainer
since 1995, I always saw the need for more than simply ‘working out’, but had
to refer out around the City to a ton of people or businesses I really didn’t
know that well. We have done amazing job the past 4 years of attracting the
right people and to take it one step further, we will be expanding the
Chiropractic operation to implement a Wellness Clinic. Kirk Johnson, along with
Heather McCoy and Adi Shamir, will take control of your entire Wellness journey
to create a strategy that optimizes your body to its full potential.
The process would naturally begin with Lab work to get the
inner picture to find the right course of action. Whereas many of these
services would be panned out and you shuttled around the City to different Labs
and locations, blood draws will be in-house with Vibrant America will doing the
Lab work. All of this beginning in as little as a couple of months. Nutritional
and Supplemental recommendations to adjust and optimize your body’s inner
environment will follow and progress to Eating Strategies and Meal Prep to fuel
your body correctly. This flowchart naturally proceeds to Exercise to optimize
bodily functions and improve structure.
I am truly excited about this potential and the efforts our
team is putting into it. You can be confident that in entering our Facility you
have embarked upon a cohesive and comprehensive Fitness and Wellness journey
that is destined to succeed.

Our Personal Trainers are continually studying and learning.
Liz and Melanie were recently in Toronto for Isophit
Training, with Liz soon testing out in MAT. Ryan and Angela will be heading to
Oklahoma City for RTS Mastery education, (the PhD in our business), beginning
Heather is our new massage therapist, and also an RN who
will be collaborating with Kirk to manage all things medical in our Clinic.
Beyond her Integrative Nutrition Degree, Adi guides,
demonstrates, and educates you on ways to implement healthy eating habits into
you and your family’s lifestyle. Her personality makes eating, shopping, and
meal prep easy and fun for the whole family.
Exciting new services will be rolled out at Johnson Chiropractic &
Acupuncture this fall. We have paired with a wellness laboratory service
to bring the best and latest cutting-edge technology laboratory testing to our
clinic. These tests range from cardiac panels, gut health, to food
sensitivity. Nutritional examinations with supplement recommendations are a
great way to jump start your path to wellness. We look forward to serving
all of your holistic healthcare needs!
2017 has been a FITASTIC year for
Eilates. In February, we moved into our current fabulous space. The space is
fresh, open, and sparkles due to shining clients that enter the room each day.
The beautiful Pilates Ball Lighting adds a very unique & fun touch as well.
I am overjoyed to have expanded
into ‘Team Eilates’. I have two instructors now
sharing their many talents in Mat
Pilates and Reformer Pilates. You can count on Angie White and Shannon Klaus to
instruct with excellence and passion!
We have been blessed to hear
countless inspirational stories from clients who have transformed not only
their bodies, but also their mindset, perspective, and attitude!
We want the Eilates Studio to be
a comfortable place that our clients come to for
connection, encouragement, wisdom, friendship, and results.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT STAN WHITE
Stan came to our
Fitness Alliance Family at the beginning of 2017 through his Son Tim and
Daughter in law Dianne, also Clients. They purchased 12 Personal Training
Sessions as a Christmas gift for him and he began working out in January. Stan
had never worked out before, had just relocated from Arkansas, and was kind of
leery of personal training. As our job is with each and every client at Fitness
Alliance, getting to know them personally: habits, likes, dislikes, family,
dogs, restaurants, etc. yields a lot of information to not only create workouts
that are effective, but a client
experience that makes them feel welcome and coming back for more. Figuring
out Stan was easy. He takes what we instruct to heart, learns it, asks 50
questions a workout, and puts it into practice. I am proud of him and what he
has accomplished in losing now some 27 pounds, eating clean, and of course
becoming an integral part of our Fitness Alliance Family and the South Overland
Park/Leawood community. Everybody knows him, everybody loves him.
In his own words from this Interview: “I feel like a new person.”
· - 'Carbs’
are not bad! Vegetables and Fruit are carbohydrate. It’s grains, starches,
sugar, dairy and those rapidly digestible goodies like cookies, donuts, cereal,
and crackers which the majority eat that get converted glucose and start
swimming in your bloodstream. Yes, glucose is the preferred fuel for the body,
but too much glucose from eating too many Carbohydrates beyond your energy
needs and what the body can store in the liver and muscle, it will begin to
convert and be stored as Fat.
Big Belly/Beer Gut, or whatever you want to call it, is not all Fat. Feeding
your gut with too many sugars feeds bad bacteria causing swelling or bloating
of your intestines, all 25 feet of them!
Majority of your Exercise Strategy should be Low-Intensity such as walking.
Fat does not make you Fat. Try adding in your daily Fat requirements from Avocado,
Olive, and Coconut products…all Fruits!

your legs and arms often!
Cholesterol is relatively benign if we have low systemic inflammation and low
insulin levels via limited carbohydrate intake.
