Women Fitness|January 2022
Catherine Joy "CJ" Perry best known in WWE, under the ring name Lana is a multi-talented wrestler, model, actress, dancer, and singer.

Best known as a WWE superstar, CJ is internationally recognized for being the first of her kind to have a hand in so many angles at one time.

Earlier this year, Perry landed a role in Bruce Willis’s latest project Cosmic Sin, playing “Sol”, a role which was originally written for a male. Co-written and directed by Corey Large and Edward Drake, and produced by Large (The November Man, It Follows) Cosmic Sun will release top of 2021. Past acting credits for CJ include Pitch Perfect and Pitch Pefect 2 and Another Version of You.

Perry is also widely known for starring on E!’s hit reality series “Total Divas” during the 6th, 7th and 8th seasons. CJ Perry has since built a huge social media presence with over 3.6M followers on Instagram and over 1M on Twitter.

You are born in Gainesville, Florida, and spent your childhood in the Latvian SSR. You attended the Riga Choreography School and began dancing with the Latvian National Ballet at the age of 14. From Florida State University (FSU) in Tallahassee, Florida you did your major in dance and acting and later took start your career in modeling. You relocated to Los Angeles and this propelled your modeling career to the height where you have been at the top of the world of fashion and glamour modeling. You later excelled as a singer, actor, and professional wrestler. Tell us more about your professional journey of hard work, tenacity, and endurance?

Never Give Up. Passionately and resiliently purse your dreams. Don’t take “no” for an answer, just make a different path to get to your destination.

You moved from Latvian, United States, and Europe for your professional career. For a model and actress adjusting to new countries with their own cultures, it must be difficult and then to adjust with modeling and acting career in the new foreign land, what advice you can give to fellow models/actresses in a similar situation?

Pre-pandemic, I would say, go out and experience the food, culture, sights, art and nature of that foreign city and country you are in. I would say, dive into the world you don’t know and understand. Challenge your mind to have new life experiences that are foreign to you and try to understand the world from a different point of view. This will only help oneself grow as a human being and as a storyteller. I believe this is a crucial life experience to have. Models, actors, professional wrestlers, dancers and influencers are all stories tellers. The more challenges and life exposure we have, the better of a story teller we become. Doesn’t matter what wrapping the storyteller tells their story in, the deepness comes from exposing yourself to foreign things and experiences.

You are a world-leading media personality, American professional wrestler, professional wrestling manager, actress, dancer and a mode. Singer, and brand ambassador. How do you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?

By saying my affirmations every morning. I try and make a vision board every year before the New Year. I write down my goals, dreams and timelines I want to achieve. I try to always find the silver lining and count my blessings.

As a WWE Superstar, give us an insight into what your exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine that you may wish to share?
