Approximately 55% are overweight. Each year, Americans spend
over $2 billion on exercise programs and products yet many
remain overweight. Additionally, a significant portion of
this population also suffer from some form of depression and
low self-esteem. JAHS Fitness Center has found the answer
to this phenomenon by combining "behavioral" physical fitness
programs, mental and spiritual health. JAHS seeks to reduce
not only the number of pounds that its clients weight, but
to reduce the emotional pounds of stress and mental pressure
that clients carry daily.

African-American are looking for products and services that
reflect their rich cultural heritage catering to and affirming
our distinctive body type.
The physical fitness includes exercises which promotes cardiovascular
challenge and endurance, and resistance training using minimum
or no weight to gain lean muscle mass or muscular toning.
We consider the physical health of a client as well as lifestyle
and environmental conditions that may impact their fitness

clients undergo a one-on-one consultation which includes discussion
of emotional and mental health characteristics that may impact
their physical state. In addition, clients participate in
an educational session on the anatomy of the human body and
how it works. JAHS also provides a number of educational materials
and resources that may be useful to its clients. A "fitness
consultant" frequently check in with clients to monitor their
mental fitness throughout the process. Due to John Dureke’s
educational and experience as a counselor, it makes it easier
to be able to have hands-on training with dealing with any

that depression, gastric disorders, hypertension and hair loss
are many times related to our spiritual disposition. JAHS addresses
this phenomenon by Odiche relaxation with by Gospel and dance
music which gets one in touch of oneself.
History :JAHS Odiche Fitness & You, Inc., was founded by Margaret
and John Dureke. Since its inception, JAHS has experienced phenomenal
growth in a very short period of time. Within six months of
opening, the business outgrew its facility and relocated to
a larger facility in the same area. As JAHS strove to make a
name for itself, the membership continued to grown. Since JAHS
expanded for the second time to its present location, it has
helped several thousands of people achieve their fitness goals
and healthier lifestyles.
