Who's Coach Johnson?

Coach Erik Johnson is the founder/ head coach of Arete Throws Nation and the architect of the Throwing Chain Reaction™ system.  He has been throwing since he was 12 yrs old, and has an obsession for all things technical about the shot put and the discus.  Why? Because it was mastering the technique of the discus that took him all the way to the finals of the Olympic trails in '96.

Coach Johnson's journey has given him great experiences working with some of the nation's top strength coaches, and talented throwers in the world.

Coach Johnson, has condensed over 20 yrs of experience, thousands of hours of studying & research on technique and weight lifting, and has coached hundreds of athletes creating the THROWING CHAIN REACTION™ system.  The TCR™ is what makes all of the ATN throws camps & clinics so impactful to all throws coaches and throwers who attend, or who train at one of the ATN training centers (Ca & Az).

Coach Erik Johnson"You must be a student of the throw, work every day on your technique, love the grind in the weight room, and most importantly, BELIEVE in yourself to truly reach your goals."- Coach Johnson
