Georgeanna Johnson gets surprised at her husband Scott’s church by trainer Chris Powell. While saying a prayer at Church On The Move, Powell shows up to change Georgeanna’s life. Take a look at the above clip and read on for the facts on Georgeanna and her amazing transformation.
1. Georgeanna Sacrificed Her Dreams For her Daughters
Georgeanna was a talented gymnast, but sacrificed her aspirations for her two daughters. She says she got so caught up in being a mother that she forgot who she was inside. She’s a pastor’s wife who is soon to become an empty-nester and Georgeanna really wants to find herself and become fit like she used to be. As far as her appearance went over the years, Georgeanna said on Facebook:
I spent years doing everything I could to hide my weight, and being in denial about how out of control it was. Weighing in and taking the before pics without a shirt made me confront the reality of where I was. There is no where to hide, no denying what you weigh and the state of your body.

2. Five Olympic Gymnasts Come to Help Out Georgeanna
— Extreme Weight Loss (@ExtWeightLoss) July 21, 2014
Bart Conner, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Mary Lou Retton, and Nadia Comaneci all appear on Extreme Weight Loss to help Georgeanna realize her dreams and conquer her journey. As far as Georgeanna meeting some of her idols, she said:
One of the best moments of this year was meeting my idols! Nadia Comaneci was so sweet and humble. I burst into tears when I met her. She’s the reason I wanted to do gymnastics when I was a kid. And meeting Mary Lou was incredible! We are almost the same age, and when I was a teenager I thought if I could just meet her I know we could be friends! Haha. I never thought I actually would. And I was right! We hit it right off, never stopped talking and had such a fun day. Excited for you all to see the time I spent with them!
In addition to working out with the olympic gymnasts, Georgeanna also exercised with Detroit Lion Corey Hilliard. Georgeanna posted a message saying:
Soaking wet hair, double under rope burns, and working out with Detroit Lion Corey Hilliard… I’m going to call today’s crossfit WOD a success. I am worn out. Whew!
3. They Did a Lot of 5K Runs Throughout Georgeanna’s Transformation
Georgeanna has posted a few photos from her time in boot camp with Chris and Heidi Powell as she had to go through all kinds of runs including a mud run and a neon paint one as well. Georgeanna posted the above photo with this caption:
During boot camp we did a lot of 5k’s. This was one of my favs! The Neon Dash! Can’t wait for you to see other adventures from my year tomorrow night! I am so glad Heidi was a big part of my experiences. I love her! She was a gymnast too, so it was a great connection for us!
Since Georgeanna’s transformation, she’s actually started working at Crossfit Owasso, coaching the “Lean and Clean” class.
4. Georgeanna’s Husband Scott Jumped On the Extreme Weight Loss Train Too
Over the past year while Georgeanna was going through her transformation, her husband Scott actually joined her and even lost 50 pounds. Georgeanna posted the above photo of her husband at his new weight alongside their two daughters with this message:
Have to give a birthday shout out to my wonderful husband! He jumped right in and supported me all year and lost 50 pounds! He’s turning 45 today but looks younger, and is healthier than ever! Thank you, Scott, for being such a great dad and encourager to me. We love you!
