CEO of CJ’s Functional Fitness, CJ bases his fitness program from his 30+ years of experience in the fitness and martial arts world.
CJ developed a deeper desire for fitness after completing in an all natural body building show in the early 90’s. In the late 90’s he discovered no-holds-barred trainig and had to make major physical adjustments to adapt to the demands of conditioning. The transition from bodybuilding to mixed martial arts birthed CJ’s concept of functional fitness.
“It’s about life fitness. It’s all about staying well. Functional training is more than just exercising for a moment in a day. There is a spiritual aspect in knowing that every inch of you is fully available to thrive and leave a legacy for your family. From simply getting in and out of your seat or climbing a flight of stairs without breathing hard or just being able to engage in all that life has to offer; there is a pathway to wellness. It does not matter what physical state of fitness you are currently in, you can improve it, and I want to help. This is the gift god gave to me to share to the world”
