Long story short- we know races. As two avid racers and close friends, Rachel and Joneshia, knew that they could add something to the racing market that was missing. That’s when JohnJohn Sports was born. We are committed to sharing our experience and love of fitness with all of our customers by hosting competitive, unique, and exciting sporting events throughout Central Florida. It’s our goal to make racing and overall fitness accessible to everyone in a fun, comfortable, and inviting environment.
At every race one random runner will receive “Super Swag.” “Super Swag” is a gift or gift bag that is worth more than the cost of entry and will only be awarded to one random participant each race. All participants who complete the race have an equal chance of winning “Super Swag.” But, the fun doesn’t stop there. After all of our races, we will offer a free fitness course for all race participants who are looking to burn a few more calories. Post-race workouts will vary from race to race. Possible workouts include: Yoga, cross-training, zumba, guided stretching, and ab workouts. **There will also be awards given to male and female winners in each division.
Thousands of miles away in Germany, John Cooper was working as a cook for the U.S. Army. However, despite his lack of field training, he was called in to replenish the forces at the Battle of Aachen. And despite heavy losses on both sides, Cooper survived and worked tirelessly to help injured soldiers retreat. For his service, he was awarded a Soldier’s Medal, which is given for bravery that does not involve conflict.
The heroics and faith of these great men are the reason that founders Rachel Robinson and Joneshia Bethea named their company after their grandfathers, John Cooper and Johnny Littlejohn, respectively. Their commitment to their faith, families, and country are a constant inspiration. And when things get tough and it looks like there’s no way out, we remember to keep the faith and keep fighting!
JohnJohn Sports founders, Rachel Robinson and Joneshia Bethea, have been good friends for nearly 10 years. They met at a low point in their lives as Joneshia was recovering from an achilles tear and Rachel was working her way back from ACL reconstruction surgery. Although they had both been athletes throughout their lives, their injuries really set them back. After several months of inactivity they knew it was time to get back to work, shed the pounds, and regain their strength and confidence.
Considering all they had been through their chance encounter at Juan Camacho's Boxing and cross-training, seemed more like destiny. As soon as they met, they began to push and challenge each other. They quickly regained their competitive spirits and they took turns winning weight loss challenges. After many lost pounds, 5Ks, mud runs, and hikes, they knew it was time to help others feel the confidence that they felt as a result of their commitment to fitness.
