CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession is a must watch documentary.

CT Fletcher is a man who is larger than life. While he may have achieved greatness in the realm of powerlifting, he’s gained most of his notoriety after retiring from competition. His lifting records speak for themselves, but in a way that’s not what makes CT Fletcher a special human being.

What makes CT Fletcher an individual you simply can’t take your eyes off of is his personality.

CT Fletcher commits himself to what he loves. Whether that it’s his love for family or his love for iron, CT Fletcher shows will and loyalty to his commitment. He has a willingness to walk through the fire to achieve his goals. It’s this mindset that carried him throughout his powerlifting career. It’s the same mindset that helped him survive his childhood. It’s the mindset that allowed him to battle back from multiple heart surgeries.

CT Fletcher’s iron will and mindset of never giving up is what made him the perfect subject for the documentary CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession.

A Look Into The Mind Of One Of The Most Motivational Lifters In History

The creators of Generation Iron bring you the untold story of six-time world champion powerlifter, and ‘baddest muthaf#*ka’ of all time, CT Fletcher. Deemed one of the most influential and motivated fitness trainers, CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession explores the pain, struggle, and hardships that he has endured throughout his life.

Leaving an abusive childhood home, the film dives further into Fletcher’s personal and professional life – demonstrating the power motivation can have on the human spirit. Featuring appearances from Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bill Goldberg, and Kevin “Da Hulk” Washington, Fletcher’s life shows us how to push through our obstacles to achieve dreams of greatness.

CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession highlights what makes the popular powerlifter such an inspirational force. Even Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson found inspiration from following the untold story of CT Fletcher. The Rock calls CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession one of the greatest documentaries he’s ever seen.

The Rock had this to say about how much CT Fletcher has inspired him and how the documentary has helped to push him.

Our mana (spirit) is strong.
Intense workouts are part of my daily process. I need the intensity to anchor my day, so the last thing I want is to be interrupted… but, for THIS MAN, I will gladly stop my workout, remove my headphones and respectfully remove my hat so I can shake hands and hug @c.t.ali.fletcher.

I started tracking CT years ago. Quietly following him in the shadows and admiring the impact he’s had on so many people’s lives. About a year ago I watched one of the greatest documentaries I’ve ever seen, about his life called #MyMagnificentObession. In the doc, I was specifically moved by the relationship he had with his dad. When I shared this with CT, he then proceeds to tell me how much my dad (Rocky Johnson) influenced him growing up. Crazy how life comes full circle that way.
CT exemplifies what it means to overcome the odds and work so intensely hard at something, it becomes an obsession. But CT’s real power, will always be the gratitude and humility he has in his heart.
Life is crazy and busy for all of us, but when we can fuel it with a lil’ gratitude and humility – life becomes that much better.
Pleasure to meet you brother, thank you for the inspiration and as always.. ISYMFS. 💪🏾 (keep kickin’ ass Samson and carrying on that family tradition)
