More About Coach Johnie

I have been coaching track for 10 years from middle schools to the collegiate level. I ran track for Cass Technical High School where I became DPS city champ in the 100m and 3rd at the State meet. I was an All-American at Central Michigan becoming one of the fastest men in the world at 60m. I ran professionally for five years after college. I am a Level I USATF certified coach. My main focus is speed, power, and explosiveness. A typical session with me is examining your strengths and weaknesses then improving general strength. Once that is established then sport specific training will begin with an emphasis on improving speed, power, and explosiveness.

Coach Drake is a great trainer. I have noticed a significate improvement in Corey’s performance. Thank you!

Coach Johnnie was very good with my son.
He also takes the time to explain why he is doing the exercises and motions to help them understand what it takes to go faster.
I would suggest Johnnie to anybody looking to learn to run faster for sports.

Great coach. Lots of energy. My daughter loved her session and asked for more. Helped push her further and harder to get to her best which is what she needs.

Personable, enthusiastic, knowledgeable...passionate. The long and short, if you or your child is looking to become a better sprinter, this is your guy. Period. Book it.

Johnie was a great coach! I’ve had a lot of trainers over the years, and I can tell you he is one of the best. He is a great teacher. He really knows his stuff. He’s also very patient and encouraging. I learned so much in just one hour. I would recommend him to anyone!

Coach Johnie is really great at picking up on the little things that the athlete needs to fix that can make a big difference. He keeps you motivated and feeling successful!

Coach Johnnie David is thorough energetic and committed to helping each athlete maximize his abilities. He is very I formative and demanding as well.

Great session with Johnie. He filled the hour with useful information and drills and effectively explained the "why" behind each one. Highly recommend.

Coach Johnie did a great job giving my son tips and strategies to improve his performance in the 100m/200m. Very positive approach. Highly recommend!

I was very impressed and happy with my daughters session with Johnnie. His method of coaching was excellent and she can't wait to train with him again. Her confidence level has already improved and is very motivated.

coach johnie has many drills set where he finds the weak points and begins to work on them quickly. I'm glad I made this choice.

Coach Johnie was a great coach. I observed my son interface with Coach Johnie and really appreciate his techniques.

Coach Johnnie is an excellent coach. I like the way he breaks down all the phases of running. He also has my son run very good drills which he later explain how these drills help with the phase of running like drive, acceleration and maintain.

Coach Johnie is very good coach

A professional, possessing rare ability to motivate & connect with children, having them want to work hard & improve. My 11 year-old ( hockey player) son can't wait for our next session.
Commissioned coach Johnie to work on improving his speed on ice. Specifically - sprinting & explosiveness techniques to augment his off- ice training.
After several sessions, we've already noticed improvement. One of the best coaches we've ever worked with. Thank you coach Johnie!

Coach Johnnie did an exceptional job teaching our 9yr old some fundamental techniques to help him in the 2015 Junior Olympics for the 100M, 200M and 4x400 relay. He focused on proper technique, having fun and mental focus. Overall; he was a great guy with real life experience to back up his coaching.
