Health and fitness professional Robert Johnson leads Stealth Self Health, a company headquartered in Vero Beach, Florida. Robert Johnson earned his MA in applied and clinical sports exercise physiology from San Diego State University (SDSU). He remains involved with his alma mater as an alumni supporter of SDSU.

One of the initiatives undertaken by the SDSU Alumni Association in recent years is its comprehensive campaign to raise funds to benefit clients of the SDSU Fitness Clinic for Individuals with Disabilities. Around 40 percent of the clinic’s clients are unable to pay the entire amount of their participation fee.

Funds raised will supplement the participation fee payments for clients in need. The campaign will also enable additional clients to join the clinic.

Established in1983, the clinic is a community outreach program of the School of Exercise and Nutritional Science (ENS). Unlike standard gyms, the clinic’s gym is equipped to serve persons with disabilities, and supervised students majoring in physical education and related fields assist clients in achieving their fitness goals. More than 1,300 local clients have been served by the program, which also has provided hands-on training to more than 3,000 ENS students.
