During the 2020 championship season, CJ took on two roles. First, competing as a varsity athlete and secondly creating and coaching the strength and conditioning program for his team.

Now, graduated he has continued to successfully coach individuals of all athletic abilities. Coach Ceej prides himself in his ability to develop movement skills by establishing a strong base of fundamental movement patterns and adapting drills to best suit the needs and capacities of his clients. CJ also provides strength programs for those dealing with injuries, collaborating with other allied health professionals.
