CT Fletcher's 'Magnificent Obsession' Offers Intense Inspiration

Powerlifting champ and YouTube motivator CT Fletcher released an addicting new documentary.

YouTube/CT Fletcher Motivation

A former world champion powerlifter who won titles in the bench press and strict curl, CT Fletcher knows what it takes to get big and strong. Unfortunately, in his younger years, this meant eating a fast food diet to bulk up, which may have contributed to having emergency open-heart surgery in 2005. Now, at age 56, the YouTube sensation and gym owner is the star of a documentary that details his upbringing, health complications, rise to fame and of course includes hardcore new and old training footage. M&F is no stranger to CT; he’s been featured on our “Over 40” page, yet the film shows us CT’s story in a way that can motivate anyone to hit the gym.

My Magnificent Obsession validates the fact that CT is an international fitness phenomenon. The movie features former professional wrestlers “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Bill Goldberg, the latter of which had some kind words to say about Fletcher in a M&F interview earlier this year.

“I stopped training after I tore my bicep and my deltoid in the ring doing muay thai and I was looking at YouTube and this video popped up of this guy CT Fletcher, I had never heard of him,” Goldberg says. “I watched a video and then picked up the phone and got a hold of him. He got my ass back in the gym and he and I since have become very good friends.”
