He developed and implemented sports medicine care and educational programs in Washington, DC and Durham, NC. He is the founder of More Than Gold Sports outreach, Camps for City Kids, and total body fitness programs strengthening youth and adults locally and nationally.

John’s heartbeat and focus is to empower poor, disenfranchised, and at-risk city kids through biblical kingdom building of the body, mind, and spirit for sustained fitness and wellness throughout life. Most of his fitness and sports programs were established in 1996 to build solid academic / athletic skills and strong Christian character in city kids ages 7-14. Today, personal fitness training, nutrition planning, sports camps and tennis academies are offered.
