|2020-Present||Skills Trainer||CJII (Charles JonesII)||Youth-Highschool||My Job at CJII is to get the next generation to get out of the mindset that instant gratification is the way to go when in reality the best things in life take time. We build strong-minded athletes to know when resistance comes to embrace it because it makes you stronger. I want my athletes to realize on the days they may not feel their best that's okay because they are not going to feel 100% every day, but on the days they don't feel like giving all they have is where the real progression and grit occurs.|
