CJ Transforms His Functional Fitness Program Into an Additional Resource for the Hurricane Katrina Survivors

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Hurricane Katrina was one of the five deadliest storms in United States history and was the costliest (at an estimated $86 billion.) The total fatalities were estimated at 1,836, including flooding in the aftermath. Witnessing the destruction/displacement from the West Coast, CJ (of CJ's Functional Fitness) has been inspired to take his new school training techniques, with old school parental inspirations, to counsel the survivors.

CJ's Functional Fitness is about your body being able to perform in a variety of extreme physical environments. He'll take the key components of his program: natural strength, flexibility (range of motion), speed, conditioning, endurance, and healthy eating, showing the survivors of Hurricane Katrina how to improve their physical and mental-emotional well being. He'll provide the essential tools needed to enhance their own spirituality, through fitness, while coping with their individual situations.

CJ will start a MySpace page that will help him grow his business and spawn other businesses for those survivors who wish to carry on his legacy of Functional Fitness.

The goal is to be able to get the most out of every part of your body at any time, for any specific activity.

Functional Fitness is about being the best you can be no matter what body type you are. It is strongly believed that this course is no different than life itself! Yes, it's a challenge, however "the only way to overcome challenge is to face it and deal with it!" says CJ.

Inspired by his mother's spirit (Margie Joseph) and his father's drive (Milton Joseph), CJ says "in CJ's Functional Fitness program, your only opponent is you. Are you ready to face yourself?"
