I've written articles the past two years on the rapid development of world class training facilities and the impact they have on prospects preparation for the Combine and Pro Day workouts.

One of the best of those facilities is owned and ran by former Olympian great Michael Johnson. The facility, located in McKinney, Texas has developed a reputation for improving the speed of professional athletes. In fact, over its three years, Michael Johnson Performance has worked with athletes from the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and PGA, as well as served as the Combine prep facility of choice for first round picks Ndamukong Suh, Felix Jones, Knowshon Moreno, Michael Crabtree and many others.

On Wednesday, MJP and the Dallas Cowboys announced that they've become the official training partner of the Dallas Cowboys.

According to their press release, this partnership grants the Cowboys:

  • Exclusive speed training – developed by MJP Founder Michael Johnson based on his legendary career as an Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder.

  • Nike’s patented Sensory Sport Training (SST) – including access to MJP’s Sports Vision Lab, where athletes train to improve their visual capabilities, such as depth perception, peripheral vision and reaction time.

  • MJP Functional movement screening program – specifically, providing program orientation to the Cowboys strength and conditioning staff and assisting with the program’s implementation at their request.

    Said Johnson, per the press release, “We are honored to partner with one of the world’s premier sports franchises. 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.”
