About Marty

1.  What do you enjoy most about working at Uncommon Age? 

Hands down, the people.  Both our clients and trainers are just an outstanding bunch of folks. They are down to earth, authentic, intelligent, and most of all, welcoming and accepting of us all!

2.  How would you describe the culture of Uncommon Age? 

Smart and fun.  I personally like to be understand why I’m doing something, and why I should invest my time, effort and money in anything.  I hope to address that in what we do at UA. Things need to make sense to me but at the same time, I want to find joy in what I am doing.  I work off the assumption most people share that desire.

3.  I am inspired by:

Those that I can learn from, which is everyone!  Continual learning and growing is very inspiring to me.

4.  Favorite book/favorite vacation spot/favorite movie/color/junk food:

I love summer, water, and heat.  Everyone that knows me knows that.  So wherever that is, I’m good!  I also love comedic action flicks, 21 Jump Street and The Good Guys are among some of my favorites.  My sister and I always joke that whatever movie she likes, I’ll hate, and vice versa.  It’s all about decreasing threat to my nervous system, so entertainment for me needs to be fun!

5.  How would you describe yourself?

I’m pretty much an open book.  What you see is what you get!  I highly value authenticity and transparency when working with my staff and clients.

About Deb

Joining the Uncommon Age team as a trainer has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. It is so rewarding to see clients improve in their movement, decrease their level of pain, or witness a smile on a clients face when they accomplish their goals.

Uncommon Age stands alone in the St. Croix Valley in teaching our clients how to move more efficiently by doing specific drills to open joints in their bodies. I am so proud to be a part of this great team!

About Pamela

1.  What do you enjoy most about working at Uncommon Age? 

I enjoy working out at UA because I am constantly learning new information about helping people live and move in more efficient ways!  It’s like no other gym or studio I have been to and the people who work out at the studio are so kind and open to trying new things.

2.   How would you describe the culture of Uncommon Age?   

Uncommon Age is a welcoming studio where anyone at any level of fitness or any age can come and work out at a level that works for them.  There are so many options and accommodations depending on what type of workout an individual wants. No two workouts are the same.

3.  I am inspired by:  

Helping people feel better physically.  Working out is so much more than how many lbs. you want to lose! It’s also about how you want to feel not just today but for the rest of your life.

4.  Favorite book/favorite vacation spot/favorite movie/color/junk food:

I love to read psychological mysteries where the unexpected happens.  I love trying to predict “who did it” before the end of the book.  I am a chocoholic and I own it but it’s all about moderation; sometimes! As far as a vacation spot, just get me to the Atlantic Ocean where I can swim in the ocean and get a good slice of NY pizza and I am a happy girl!

5.  How would you describe yourself?

Part of the reason I enjoy this gig at Uncommon Age is the history of heart disease in my family. I want to be healthy, I want to help others be healthy, and I want to be a role model for my children and family that you can be physically active at any age.   I was raised to believe I can do whatever I put my mind to so whenever someone says, “I can’t do that” or “it’s too hard” I want to help them accomplish what they thought they couldn’t!

Kathi Johnson

Personal Trainer


  • ACE Certified Personal Trainer
  • Functional Training Specialist in Progress
  • Function First Pain-Free Movement Specialist in Progress
  • Z-Health EEP
  • Z-Health R-Phase
  • Z-Health I-Phase
  • TRX Suspension Level 1

  • Precision Nutrition Level 1

A lifelong athlete, Kathi has enjoyed healthy movement and appreciated it in others for years. Growing up, she participated in track, basketball, softball and a variety of other sports.  As an adult, her life became more sedentary and stressful with frequent work travel.  She eventually decided to prioritize her health by becoming more physically active again, and started running and doing triathlons.  But as injury after injury occurred, she realized that she needed support to move well and strengthen weaknesses, so she worked with Physical Therapists to rehab injuries and sought out Personal Trainers to prevent new ones.

Kathi benefited so much from her work with Personal Trainers that she obtained an ACE Personal Training Certification.   In almost a decade of working in this field, she’s also completed certifications in Nutrition Coaching from Precision Nutrition and EEP, R, and I Phase from Z Health. She uses all of her training to meet her clients where they are and help them uncover their inner athlete, whatever that may look like for them.
