Cyndi Johnson

Cyndi was born and raised in Central Mass. She has moved around numerous times, but always ends up back in the same town and on the same street (this is the third time she’s lived on her current road)! Before kids, Cyndi was an avid runner and hiker, a personal trainer, an instructor of group fitness, aerial arts, pole fitness, and yoga, as well as a fitness/ nutrition class. Once having her son Luka (2016), she worked a “regular” job before leaving to welcome her daughter Bodhi (2019) and become a stay-at-home Mom. Cyndi has since gone back to school to be a Nurse Midwife, and has returned to more serious running, adding ultramarathoner to her repertoire. She enjoys more strenuous hikes with friends, but often brings her kids on shorter hikes as well, either alone or with friends. The entire family enjoys going tent-camping in the mountains a few times a year- her kids have been camping every year of their lives! If you’re looking for Cyndi, you’ll find her outside somewhere!
