Interview with Lincoln CPT (@just_lincolns)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I have had many doctors tell me I can’t work out or do physical activities due to the titanium vertebrae in my spine. I have exceeded any expectations of my recovery and want to help others exceed what they believe in their bodies.

Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

I never sought this career path. It was only after someone asked me to help them get into better health that when we blew away the goals we set in the beginning in half the amount of time, it set me on a path to want to help more people.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Take personal time. Without giving yourself whatever you need, you will not be able to maintain any actual type of success for others. A fresh mind and a new body are what they look for in a coach.

None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Brian Highnote. He helped to push me through a period in my life when I was overweight and had no natural muscle. The transition in just a few months was incredible. I couldn’t have done it without his help.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

I train people for free. I try to give back as much as possible and always show people there is a positive outlook no matter the situation.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

I don’t have anyone, but mostly a thought whispered in my ear: “remember that you must die.” The phrase has its origins in ancient Rome. It is believed that enslaved people paying generals on victory parades whispered the words as a reminder of their commander’s mortality to prevent them from being consumed by hubris (excessive pride and self-confidence).
