Who Are We


CJ Johnson

Hey there- Playing your best pickleball goes beyond mastering efficient strokes. It requires a holistic approach that involves both the mind and body. That’s why I founded the Better Pickleball YouTube channel, to help players learn the game, and explore their inner athlete. 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 potential. In addition to my expertise in pickleball, I am a PGA Golf Professional, PSIA Ski Instructor, and ISSA Personal Trainer. This diverse background allows me to provide comprehensive guidance to help pickleball players achieve their best performance on and off the court.

My work includes producing videos for the In2Pickle YouTube channel, hosting the one-of-a-kind Pickleball Therapy podcast, and even writing a book, “Play Pickleball.” I am dedicated to teaching pickleball, earning the highest certification available: Master Teaching Professional from the leading pickleball instruction certification program, the IPTPA.
