Do you know your numbers? What are the signs of high blood pressure?
Coach Bev breaks down how to read your numbers, the common causes of hypertension, and how to prevent it.
When we talk about blood pressure, we talk about the systolic, the number at the top, and the diastolic, the number at the bottom. Normal for systolic is less than 120, and the normal for diastolic is less than 80.
Common Causes of Hypertension:
- Medical racism
- Environmental racism
- High salt or high-fat diet
- Little to no exercise

About Coach Bev:
Having been a Zumba instructor for years, Beverly K. Johnson knew her influence included more than fitness training when a candid conversation with an exercising client revealed that women in caretaker roles often forget about themselves. She named her new motivational fitness business Genesys Fitness because it signified a rebirth for the often “forgotten” woman: the divorce’, caretaker, and empty-nester.
The NYC Journal highlighted Beverly in 2022 for being in the Top 30 Female Entrepreneurs to Look Out For. Beverly specializes in creating, educating, and implementing motivational wellness routines into the everyday woman’s life. She has been featured in Sheen Magazine for her article, “Are you Sabotaging Your Wellness Journey?” In this article, she uses her years of experience to educate readers in a relatable way so they can get ahead of their own wellness journey.
