6x Powerlifting champion C.T. Fletcher is the original Iron Addict - invincible - indestructible - unbreakable. The tough-talking, weight lifting inspiration to an entire generation has flatlines not once but five times and come back from death’s door to tell us about it. When a heart attack knocked him to the ground, he thought it was lights out for good. The sheer will mirrored to him by his son and his unfaltering mantra of DON’T BREAK brought him back from the brink. People looked up to him and he would never let them down. Appreciate every day and every breath!
Going through difficult times can make you resilient The WILL to live is vital Appreciate every second Breathing should not be taken for granted Waking up in the morning is a gift Have an attitude of gratitude Don’t Break It’s not about you Don’t waste one second of life
