Santa Monica, Coach

My Why

"The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war."

My Beats

Born and raised in Washington DC, C.J. is a former Division 1A football player for Temple University, where he also earned his Bachelor’s degree. Upon graduation, he studied at Pinnacle Performance in Waldorf, Maryland under Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Fran Penny. Soon after, he was able to draw the attention of Strength and Conditioning Coach Bijai Jones, who was able to groom C.J. into a fitness Legend. C.J. is no stranger to running a successful sports performance gym. After all, he built a successful brand as an elite trainer in South Florida. It was there that his reputation, and moniker, as “The Fit Legend” began. With momentum behind him, he made his move to the fitness capital of the free world, Santa Monica. If you haven’t heard about his reputation before, you’re about to know exactly how he earned it as your Gloveworx coach. You can expect the same standards for motivation and commitment he expects of himself. And that is, to grind it out, day in day out. It’s about focusing on what’s in front of you, and reaping the rewards later. His advice? “Trust the process. Nothing comes overnight. Consistency is the key.”
