“Jodie Johnson and JSTAthlete has helped me greatly in my development as an athlete during my first 10 years as a pro baseball player.   I have increased my speed, strength and power while significantly raising my muscle mass & improving my flexibility.  Jodie made a significant contribution in me becoming a very successful Major League Outfielder. In working with Jodie Johnson and Johnson Sports throughout my first 8 year pro baseball career, I have developed from a fast 170 Lb. 1st round MLB  draft pick and Minor League Player to an even faster and very successful 205 Lb. Major League Player. Jodie’s outstanding Baseball-specific training programs have allowed my abilities to significantly improve while staying free of serious injury throughout a significant part of my career.”

 “While training with Jodie and Johnson Sports in the first several years of my pro baseball career, I increased my baseball speed and strength helping me to improve my base running, have more range in centerfield and hit my first professional baseball home runs.  Jodie’s workouts were intense and focused on my baseball-specific needs.”

and allowed me to get into great physical condition.  I was as fast and strong as I ever have been.”

“When I first was involved with the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, I ranked in the bottom third of the team in Athleticism. After training with Jodie Johnson for 6 months, I improved my athleticism significantly to be ranked as the most Athletic on the team!”

JSTAthlete began in 1997, when I found myself, as an Engineer and Technology Business professional, passionately designing fitness and sports training related technologies and products.
