Michael Johnson Performance has been announced as the official training partner of the Dallas Cowboys, which will allow the team support through Olympian Michael Johnson’s personally designed speed training program, as well its functional screening program and Nike’s patented sensory sport training.
Many Cowboys are familiar with MJP’s chief location, the Michael Johnson Performance Center in McKinney.

Now departed receiver Patrick Crayton spent time there while holding out of the team’s OTAs this offseason.
In addition, Michael Johnson Performance will now provide the training components for all Dallas Cowboys youth football camps moving forward.
“We are honored to partner with one of the world’s premier sports franchises,” Michael Johnson said in a statement. “The Cowboys strength and conditioning staff are obviously the best at what they do. I believe that our experience and proven program offerings will only complement their ongoing efforts. And as a Dallas native and lifelong Cowboys fan, the thought of playing some small role in helping the team achieve its ultimate goal is a huge thrill.”
Bradie James, who splits time each offseason between Cowboys headquarters at valley Ranch and MJP said: "Michael Johnson Performance has become a key part of my off-season training. My nutrition, movement and explosiveness have all improved, and I see the changes on the field. Training at MJP has elevated my game.”
