CJ Johnson

Hey, pickleball friends. CJ here. Playing your best pickleball goes beyond mastering efficient strokes. It requires a holistic approach that involves both the mind and body. Since I started coaching more than three decades ago, one thing has remained the same. I'm committed to helping students see their potential and to do everything I can to help them realize their untapped capabilities. In 2016 I started the Better Pickleball Channel. In addition to my pickleball expertise, I have logged many years of experience in helping enhance the performance of athletes across multiple sports. With my background as a PGA Golf Pro, PSIA Ski Instructor, and ISSA Personal Trainer, I help pickleball players achieve their best performance on and off the court. My years as an athlete and coach have given me a keen eye for discerning what can help you improve the most. My passion is to stand at your side as you continue to discover and grow in this amazing sport.

Tony Roig

Hello there. As an unabashed pickleball superfan myself, I look forward to sharing this awesome pickleball journey with you. Not only has pickleball changed my life as I've evolved into a Senior Pro Player, but I've also seen it radically enhance the lives of thousands of players. This is what keeps me doing what we do...helping pickleball players all over strengthen their relationship to this amazing sport. I've been called a master strategist and impactful pickleball content creator. And, yes, I've produced numerous videos for the In2Pickle YouTube channel, am host of the one-of-a-kind Pickleball Therapy podcast, and I even wrote a book, "Play Pickleball". But what most allows me to stand before you as your pickleball Coach comes as a result of my earning the highest pickleball coaching certification available...a Master Teaching Professional from the IPTPA (International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association).
