Evan Johnson


Evan is a graduate of Northern Vermont University (Formerly Lyndon State College) with a B.S. in Exercise Science with a focus in Strength and Conditioning.  Evan was a 2-sport athlete in high school and played soccer and lacrosse.  Following graduation, he decided to enlist in the United States Marine Corps in 2008. 
During his time on active duty he realized that being physically and mentally prepared were extremely important in creating resilient humans, but the training he received was outdated and did not align with current health and fitness research. This is what sparked Evan’s interest in pursuing a career in the field of Exercise Science and Coaching. 
Since joining XIP, Evan has worked with a wide variety of clientele that includes young children all the way up to older adults.  He especially enjoys coaching young athletes, which stems from having a daughter of his own.  He firmly believes that coaches and parents alike should consider this advice in light of the current culture surrounding long term athletic development and general preparation to be successful in life:
“Prepare the child for the path, not the path for the child”    
Since returning to Vermont in 2013, Evan has continued to expand his knowledge and experience in the field of health and exercise through living an active lifestyle.  Currently, Evan resides in Barre and enjoys the bounty of outdoor activities in the central Vermont area. In his free time he loves to read, swim and bike with his daughter, and hike with his dog.  
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts” – Winston Churchill
