Why CT Fletcher?

Aside from the fact that CT Fletcher’s powerful built is enough to make you want to hit the weights at the gym, there are other things that make him a mammoth inspiration to many people.

For starters, the powerlifting legend may have had the fitness part down pat, with health and fitness, when he was young. But he wasn’t doing well with the health part of the equation. Fletcher consumed a steady diet of McDonald’s for 20 years. He would have four Big Macs, four orders of French fries, four strawberry milkshakes, and four personal size apple pies — for lunch.

This calorie-packed diet led to an emergency open-heart surgery, as you would expect. He flat lined three times. He was more than 300 pounds at the time.

Today, Fletcher weighs in at 235 pounds. Instead of eating Big Macs, Fletcher eats healthy foods, like salmon, turkey, brown rice and sweet potatoes. And also, this titan of a powerlifter happens to be 54.

That’s right, CT Fletcher, who was the world-champion powerlifter in his younger years, is over 50 and still looks better than any 20-year-old or 30-year-old man.

Fletcher inspires and motivates not only those interested in bulking up and getting strong. He’s also guiding some of the more recognizable faces in powerlifting, like Keven “Da Hulk” Washington.
