National Champion Weightlifter and Team USA Coach Derrick Johnson – 279


Derrick Johnson has won 6 senior national titles, 8 American Open titles and is a world team member (scoring the most points of any athlete in over 10 years for United States at the 2014 World Championships).

Bursting with passion for the sport, with decades of knowledge to share, Derrick one hell of an athlete and may be an even better coach (the youngest Level 5 Senior International Coach in history and has coached weightlifters for the Olympics).

Competing in weightlifting for over 20 years, Derrick is the American record holder for both the snatch (double bodyweight!) and the total in the 62 kg class.

He’s as legit a weightlifter as you can get, enjoy the show!
