About the Coach

Hi, my name is Sam Johnson and I am the lead coach here at Head Start. I am 22 years old and currently completing a degree in Sports Science at St Mary's University, Twickenham, UK.

In total, I have been running for 12 years and during my time at St Mary's, I have been lucky enough to train with a number of national and international level athletes as well as a world class coach in Mick Woods. Mick has coached me for the last 3 years now, bringing me personal bests from 1,500m all the way up to 10,000m and now I want to pass on what I have learnt to you! 

Being in this environment for this long helped me to develop a passion not only for self-improvement, but also a passion for helping others improve.


From this, HEAD START COACHING was born.
