Mark Johnson

Founder / Trainer / Dreamer

In the past 20 years, Mark has completed seventeen marathons, two 50k’s, two 50 mile, and three 100 mile races. Mark started strength training as a way to supplement his running and realized the benefit strength training brought to his running performance. Not only did his endurance and speed improve, but the frequency of his running injuries decreased.  In Performance Running, he wanted to develop a place that other runners could also realize the benefits of strength training in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment. Mark is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Mark is also a level 1 certified coach through the USATF.
