Johan working with players at AIK Fotboll. Johan worked as the Head Fitness coach First Team during 2016-2019. 

Welcome to The byrizz Rehab & Performance Podcast, episode number eleven. In this episode, I speak to Physical Coach Johan Svensson. 


Johan is a Football coach and strength coach with the ability to work within and lead a team towards a common goal. His commitment is shown by following things through and dedication. His motto is ”My work is my hobby.” As a coach and person, Johan adapts quickly to new environments. In a short time, he has established himself within the elite coach environment after finished playing at the semiprofessional level.

Johan is presently working as a coach and educator of the Swedish FA with a specialization in football fitness. He is responsible for all coach education within the UEFA A license and Elite Youth courses.

Johan means that Football Fitness is an integral part of football, and everything he does together with his colleagues at his present work as a coach and educator of the Swedish FA should support the team's playing style. The main goal of FAs' work today is to teach and educate trainers to keep the players on the pitch, improving tolerance with well-designed strategies both on and of the pitch.
