A trailer for Vlad Yudin’s new documentary, “CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession,” gives a preview of the life of powerlifter CT Fletcher and his journey from a difficult upbringing and personal struggles to success as a renowned bodybuilder and motivational speaker.

Fletcher is known for his wickedly intense fitness regimen, something he had always wanted to bring to a gym he dreamed of opening. Yudin’s documentary will chronicle Fletcher’s unorthodox training methods, and how his extreme methods often contradicted many mainstream ones in the powerlifting world.

Of the film, Vlad Yudin said, “I’m very excited to unveil CT Fletcher’s film to the world. His on screen presence is captivating; his story is intense and will grab your attention from the very beginning.”
