In Episode 11 of Wellness Mastery for the Average Joe, host Justin Robinson speaks with Brendon Johnston, one of Justin’s CrossFit coaches, lifting instructor, and his work-out strategist, who also works as a pastor at Christ Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
Brendon Johnston has been involved in Christian ministry since he was 19-years-old and he has a wife and two daughters. He started his fitness journey in college Division I basketball, stopped and then revisited fitness after becoming a father.
Brendon discusses workout strategies from the perspective of being a coach and enjoying the ‘a-ha moments’ that his clients experience during training sessions when they trust Brendon’s suggestions. He talks about protecting athletes from getting hurt by looking out for moves that are pinching, grabbing, causing hip/knee/ankle flections and back roundings.
