"I have been training with Johnny for the past 6 years. Johnny has been instrumental in improving my quickness, foot speed, and all out speed in addition to my core strength. His training methods and passion helped me achieve my dream of playing for the U18 US National Ice Hockey team and the U17 US National Field Hockey Team. I couldn't have done it without his coaching and commitment to making me a better athlete"

"I have been a professional for 7 years and there isn't anybody I'd rather work with in my off season than Johnny. He's a motivator, extremely knowledgeable and a genuinely great guy. If you want to push yourself and get great results, Johnny is your guy"

AJ Cochran

Phoenix Rising FC

"When my son was in 7th grade, he started training with Johnny as both a Wide Receiver and Defensive Back. When we chose to put our son in a strong private school in St. Louis, people told us it would be too competitive for our son to play on their team. Continuing the training with with Johnny over my son's 8th and 9th grade years, we saw tremendous growth in his abilitities but also in his confidence. He grew as a player but also as a true athlete. Johnny's training and guidance were huge keys to our son securing a starting position on the varsity team his sophomore year, and all conference and all district honors. We are happy to have our son continuing his training and skill refinement with Johnny, today still."
