What We Do

Unlimited Possibilities

CPR Training

Do you or your other staff members need to be re-certified in CPR now or in the near future? I teach CPR classes for many childcare centers, community/neighborhood centers, massage therapists schools, adult nursing facilities, employment programs and other educational facilities in the Madison area.

Fitness & Wellness

All sessions are in-person 60-minute workouts at an agreed-upon date and time at a Planet Fitness, other gyms, home gyms or other spaces. Pre-workout and after-workout consultations are available via phone, text, or chat. In addition, I provide referrals to free and low-cost community fitness and wellness programs and services.

    What Our Clients Say

    Johnny knows a lot of people and organizations. He helped me strategize my business model so I could diversify my program offerings and maximize my earning potential. I really appreciated that.

    Sharon Hardiman of Excel Wellness with SSHerese

    Our organization has been thoroughly pleased with the CPR Training that Johnny provides on a monthly  basis! Johnny makes the trainings fun, engaging and a wonderful experience for the participants.  The evaluations consistently state the satisfaction they have with the instruction they receive from Mr. Winston and we always hear that it was the best CPR class they have taken!

    Marlo Mielke-Barnes
    Executive Director, Community Coordinated Child Care

    Johnny and I recently partnered on the hiring of a new Executive Director at the Vera Court and Bridge, Lake Point, and Waunona Neighborhood Centers. Johnny managed community outreach, I managed administration, and together, we worked with the Board.  Our strategies generated a highly talented and diverse pool of candidates for consideration.  We established a strong rapport with the Board and kept them informed and united, which resulted in a successful hire, quickly. With this approach, we saved the organization money in the short- and long-term.  I really enjoyed working with Johnny and hope to continue our partnership on other projects important to our community.
