Mary Johanson-2017 Special Olympics Michigan (Area 20) Coach of the Year Honoree
Two hours a week Mary Johanson gets out of her skates and comes through the doors of the Ann Arbor Applied Fitness Solutions to get her work out in. Although it’s ultimately our job to provide a tremendous atmosphere for our clients, Mary is an example of just how easy our clients make it. When she’s with us she fills the room with smiles, joy, and an over abundance of laughter. There are certain people in this world who simply have a glow about them (not the pregnancy glow!) and Mary is one of them. It’s our belief that this special energy she carries is a product of how fulfilled she is as a person. She has a wonderful family, great kids, and enjoys every second of her day working with her other kids in the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club and the Special Olympics area 20 skating program. Recently we learned that Mary has been named Area 20 coach of the year for her efforts and we couldn’t be more proud of her! We caught up with her to learn more about the honor she has received.
