  • “Jodie and Johnson Sports JST have provided me with improved speed throughout my career, from High School to the NFL Level.  In the NFL, Jodie and JST had a significant impact during my off-season training increasing all facets of my acceleration including my top-end speed and allowing me to run faster than I ever have.” 

         Logan Payne, Former NFL Wide Receiver

Through a composite program of exercises and drills which include running technique drills, sprinting drills, explosive plyometric training, and Olympic lifting, upper and lower resistance exercise training, balance & coordination training, core strengthening, flexibility and range of motion exercises added to speed-specific endurance training.  These exercises and each drill are implemented in a specialized way, at ever increasing levels of complexity as your mastery of the skills becomes realized.

Sports Tech & Analytics Consulting

Performance Tech Consulting, Predictive Analytics, Injury Prevention, effective athlete monitoring, intensity, loading, speed, peak forces, RFD, periodization, and enhanced competition-specific driil creation and periodization design.

Jodie Johnson, Elite Speed, Strength and Conditioning Coach of athletes for the last 18 years, engineered the Prodigy Data Visualization and SAE training system over the course of the last 12 years while training Pro and Collegiate pro-bound athletes. 

Early in his career, Jodie noticed that a significant number of his athletes were substantially improving in their athleticism but did not see similar improvements on that level in game performance or advancement in their sports. As an athlete growing up, Jodie personally experienced the improved athleticism that is the result of an effective and well-designed strength and conditioning program. The lack of real sports success by many of his gym's hardest training athlete’s had Johnson perplexed. Using his engineering problem-solving skills, Jodie realized that if he trained speed as if it were a sports skill - real and amazing gains could be had that actually translated to greater crucial skills performance during games and competitions.

When Johnson successfully applied sound strength and conditioning principals to the speed skill acquisition drills that he was implementing in his "Get Faster" skill regimen-his athletes attained significant and often elite speed levels and skills.

Jodies's novel methods of speed skill training were making a huge difference on the field, court, and the track for his athletes at Johnson Sports Fitness. Johnson deduced that if speed skill could be attained using these strength and conditioning processes and protocols, combined with properly designed Speed skill drills at the right times, then virtually any sports skill could be attained at a higher level. Skills that stuck that were developed in an optimal and appropriate time frame, with the added benefit of lower levels of injury-risk. These proven principals: utilizing appropriately designed drills for particular positions and sports created Johnson's training facility success- the Gym in Tampa was soon filled Pros and High-level Division I and Olympic athletes training during the offseason. The foundations of JST and Prodigy SAE were born.

The use of technology in sports performance evaluation and the collecting of athlete health and readiness data is crucial to a modern team's success. Playing a leading role in the arena is CoachMePlus. Headquartered in Buffalo, NY, CoachMePlus works with Elite professional, collegiate, and high school sports teams to manage their athletes’ sports performance data.

The Platform integrates with numerous wearable and measurement devices, CoachMePlus develops unique reports and dashboards for teams that allow faster, more accurate and all-encompassing data delivery
This software allows you to quickly uncover performance trends to evaluate game-day readiness. You’ll spend more time with your athletes and less time searching for data and compiling spreadsheets and reports to make sense of it all
Spend more time with your athletes, and less time with a spreadsheet by managing all of your sports science data in one central location.
  • Supply your own exercise videos
  • Monitor day-to-day health and wellness data
  • Match qualitative data with quantitative data to make faster, smarter game day decisions


At the intersection of Sports Science, new technologies for gathering athlete data, and the pursuit of superior athlete game performance there is a growing chasm of how to organize, control, and make sense of the vast amount of athlete data being collected. This trend is growing and can often add another layer of complexity for an organization's busy staff.

CoacMePlus was designed to manage these data sets and provides a centralized platform for complete athlete information for your team. The CMP+ platform offers a set of daily monitoring tools that allow coaches at all levels in your program to make effective game day and overall strategy decisions faster.  

Concise efficiently delivered data to assess the capacity, and competition readiness of your entire roster every day. Coaches can maximize the usefulness of player data, no matter how it was collected to uncover trends and monitor the day to day health of every athlete in the organization.

We position your organization to respond to the rapidly changing world of sports science by tracking athlete information with one centralized system. 


The speed of information is critical and CoachMePlus allows you to collect and distribute information quickly and efficiently. Certain athlete information, such as hydration and cardiac readiness, is most valuable when it is available on a real time basis; it is not helpful to know that an athlete was dehydrated three days ago. With simple and timely information, coaches and trainers can best prepare their athletes for the events of the day. By designing and customizing a monitoring program that works for their team, athletic trainers and sports performance coaches are now better positioned to keep their players on the field.


Centralized Team Access Point  
Spend more time with your athletes, and less time with a spreadsheet by managing all of your sports science data in one central location.

Tie in all of your device data in a secure and central location. Allow testing and assessment information to be seen across the organization without endlessly compiling and re-compiling reports.
"If monitoring is not part of your daily rhythm then it is hard to know where the athlete is trending, and without regular monitoring it is like closing your eyes and throwing a dart at the board…good luck on hitting a bullseye!."
Erik Korem       
University of Kentucky Football
Keeping star athletes and all of your players healthy and at their peak performance level is critical to the on-going success of a team. Athletic trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, sports science directors, and sports coaches all play a role in monitoring the health and performance of elite athletes.

Tracking how an athlete’s body is responding to previous exertion influences future training sessions and game-day readiness.

By providing real-time device data and insight into athletes’ conditions, CoachMePlus can provide coaches with physiological information about their athletes. By displaying the device-generated readiness information next to GPS load data, daily hydration, coaches’ notes and body composition, coaches can get a quick and comprehensive view of each athlete on their entire roster.
"The goal is that it allows you to stay ahead of the curve and be smarter in your decision making, which allows you to keep your players healthier and train them harder. That gives you a better chance to be on the right side of the scoreboard."
Rick Franzblau      Clemson Men's Soccer
