About Shawn Johnson East

Shawn Johnson East has had quite the second career. Despite facing injuries that forced an early retirement for the Olympic gold medal winner, the now 27 year old who won Season eight of Dancing with the Stars has cultivated a massively popular social media following. Her YouTube channel gives her 675K+ subscribers a look into her daily life as a business owner and wife of NFL player Andrew East, with another 1M+ Instagram followers tuning in to see her fun and “fyt” life. Fyt is her newest project, a fitness and health website she runs aimed at teaching her knowledge on training “in a more approachable, super fun and non-intimidating way.”
