(Strong / Organised / Professional Planner / Deadlift Lover / Strength Enthusiast)
Hi! I’m Diana Johnson, one half of the Base Body Babes.
I have been passionate about health and fitness for a very long time now. I was always a sporty kid and started training in the gym in my mid teens, I even employed my own personal trainer when I was 16 years old. Out of school, I completed my Degree in Early Childhood Learning and began directing childcare centers around Sydney. I loved my work and have always loved helping people. I also really loved training and as a side hobby, I completed my Personal Training Certification, initially out of my own interest, because I wanted to learn as much as I could so I could train myself and my friends.
It wasn’t until 2012, not long after my sister had her first born, that we both decided to change careers and start our new business together. We began coaching clients from our local park, before we outgrew that setup and realised we needed a physical space indoors to accommodate our growing clientele. We went on to open our first female exclusive gym, whilst also working on our online business, so we could reach even more women from around the world.
Our amazing Base Body Studio is my happy place. I love training myself, my friends and our clients there and am forever grateful for the opportunity we have to train and be surrounded by so many amazing women. I love the community we have created and it’s an honor to wake up everyday and go to a place that I so genuinely love.
I love lifting heavy weights, my favourite lift is the Sumo Deadlift and without sounding too proud, I have achieved some pretty cool things with my lifts. I am able to squat and deadlift triple my bodyweight, which is something I never thought was possible, but here I am, using our Base Body methods and getting stronger, fitter, healthier, happier and more confident with every year that passes, and now I hope I can help you do the same.
Sending you lots of love & strength,
