Contestant : CJ Barnhart


Name: C.J, Barnhart
Age: 26

Hometown: Lilburn, Georgia

Born and raised in the great state of Georgia, CJ found his love for exercise and adventure in high school while attending an all male military academy in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains (apparently this is a story in and of itself). After high school CJ went to the University of Georgia, where he majored in History and worked as a bartender who luckily enjoyed more fun than actual work. All Cj wanted to do after graduation was take his Harley to Hollywood and try his luck, but he fell in love and life threw him a curve ball--CJ had a little one on the way! CJ's head did not stop spinning for a year. The new family moved to Gastonia, North Carolina to have family support when the baby came. Maddie was born May 3rd, 2011 and is the best thing to ever happen to CJ; she is his reason for getting up everyday. The following August CJ and his now wife, Sarah, flew out to Vegas and tied the knot.  

By day CJ works as a convenience store manager, and by night he pushes himself for his next race or obstacle course--not only is he a Tough Mudder lover, but CJ is also working on his vintage 1973 VW Bug to drive in the Baja 1000.
