About Chris Johnson - Speaks about Health, Wellness, and Peak Performance:

Chris Johnson is the leading authority on small steps to healthy living. As Founder/CEO of On Target Living, Chris is a highly respected expert and accomplished executive, who has spent over 30 years researching and building optimal health and performance programs for individuals and corporations. He is the architect of the Food Target® that shifts from counting calories to concentrating on the nutrient values of foods that guide healthy choices.

Chris likes to say he was 'raised by wolves'. Growing up struggling with terrible skin and chronic health issues, he had no idea how his lifestyle affected his health. The doctors couldn't help him, and despite all the medications they prescribed, his health did not improve. By his mid-20's, deeply frustrated and feeling hopeless, Chris set out to heal himself. On his quest, he learned how food affects the body, the importance of sleep, and why people need to move. These discoveries transformed his life. Conditions which plagued him for years disappeared, and his energy and attitude reached new heights. Amazed at how good he felt, Chris knew he’d found his calling, and needed to share his discoveries.

Today, Chris works with organizations to transform their performance from the inside out. He applies the principles of REST-EAT-MOVE to educate, engage and motivate teams around the world. Chris graduated from Michigan State University with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Economics from Western Michigan University. He holds certifications from The American College of Sports Medicine, The National Academy of Sports Medicine and the American Council on Exercise and Certified Natural Health Professional. Chris earned and maintains a reputation of providing groundbreaking lifestyle modification strategies with integrity, humor and passion.

 STRESS & IMMUNITY – When everything around us is out of control, what can you control?

Hand sanitizer and face masks are sold out at most convenient stores. The stock market is plunging. Events, meetings and schools are getting canceled. Flights are empty as corporate
America puts a hold on travel for employees. People aren’t shaking hands anymore…it’s elbowor fist bumps only. There is obvious fear and uncertainty—and this creates stress.
• What if we took back control?
• What if we created less stress when everything around us was getting stressful?
• What if we built our invisible armor called the immune system?

We will always have setbacks, road bumps, corrections and periods where things around us are out of control. When this happens, we have two options: Play Offense or Play Defense. Think of defense as washing hands, limiting travel, investing is less risk—these all can be great. The problem is most of us forget about playing offense during periods of stress and uncertainty. If you can play both, you start to take back some control and at the same time create opportunity!

The truth is we have a lot of control over our stress level and how strong our immune system is and the crazy thing is they are both related. Create more stress for yourself, you will have a
weaker immune system. This presentation is for YOU, it’s for you to take control of what you can control to handle the chaos around us!
