An Inside Look At Shawn Johnson’s Life As An Athlete

We all know Shawn Johnson as the talented, well-adjusted athlete she’s become. But how much do we know about her journey? Who is she outside the gym? This video puts gymnastics aside and gives us an inside look at the girl who just wants to have fun, get involved, write poetry, and live a normal life. 

We can all get caught up in our “routines”, but it’s important to remember why we’re doing what we choose to do and to always find a way to stay true to ourselves! This quote from Shawn’s poem is a great example of how to be self motivated and we thought YOU could take away some inspiration from it too!

   “It holds a future that can never be told, one that can shine with the brightest of gold. The sky is its limit with the moon as its guide as no one can ever predict how high, one can travel with the hard work put in to truly become a champion.”
