Name: Justin Johnson
Job: Owner of Fitness and More Gym
Time: Ten months
Background: Johnson moved from Raton to Portales to study accounting and business administration at ENMU. He plans to graduate this December.
What does your job entail? I usually just try to keep the day-to-day operations going. I keep track of the bookkeeping for the business. Also I order cleaning supplies, tanning lotions, supplemental drinks. I make sure everyone is doing their jobs.
What is a typical day like for you? I come in and record the transactions and contracts from the previous day and make sure the workout sections are clean.
Why did you choose this job? The opportunity presented itself. I am a certified personal trainer and I have always been interested in cage fighting and weight training.
What kind of training, if any, do you need for this job? The most help I have had is from my business and accounting classes at Eastern. Certification also helps. I am a certified trainer, so I know different ways to exercise and use equipment. Our yoga instructor recently earned her second level of certification as well.
What do you enjoy most about your job? I love interacting with the different people who work out and tan here and that we all are interested in fitness. It is good to be able to answer people’s questions about exercise and health.
