About Joey Johnson
For the past thirty years Joey Johnson has been competing, coaching and consulting in the arena of human performance. Joey grew up in the rugged northern Minnesota region and through raw courage, work and determination developed into an All-American collegiate tennis player and graduated from Ole Miss University, a top 25 Division I South Eastern Conference program. He later went on to compete on the ATP Men’s Pro Tour. Joey developed a love for coaching at a young age and went on to work with many sectional, national and world-ranked athletes over a 20 year period. This experience includes coaching on the ATP and WTA Pro Tennis Tour, and consultant with amateur, professional and Olympic athletes from a variety of sports. In addition, Joey has been a Division I Head Tennis Coach and has consulted with college teams, clubs, academies and tennis federations around the world.
Joey’s life and coaching experience led him to write a book titled, Worthy to Win. This book outlines an eight-step mental training process for those hungry to experience a breakthrough in performance. He specializes in taking people who appear to have the talent to breakthrough but have not experienced that leap in results. His unique mindset (mental) development process gives the critical information to enable performers to create a shift in thinking that impacts their decision making and eliminates destructive obstacles and other self-sabotage behaviors including fear and doubt that hinder focus and a healthy competitive perspective.
"I first called Joey Johnson in late November of 2013 because I had just played three tournaments in a row where I was up a set and a break in the second set and lost all three matches. . Joey began taking me through a series of structured discussions as part of his Worthy to Win Mindset Development System. The Mental Foundation course he has taken me through has changed the way I see winning and losing to the point where I am able to execute my game more consistently under extreme pressure."
The initial mental training I did was a strong basis for my mental game. I have improved greatly from this training.
Being a stubborn pro athlete at the time I did not think I needed or felt comfortable working with a sports psychologist. After a few months and some self-evaluation I decided to reach out to Joey. I was completely unaware that Joey would have such a strong impact on my career.
