Darrick Valentine, goal achieved!

Today’s post is a huge shout out to one of clients who I have known and worked with on and off for over ten years, Darrick Valentine. I am giving Darrick a special congratulations today. 

This week Darrick competed and won his IFBB Pro card a the NPC North American championships! This one is special to me for two reasons.

First, I deeply appreciate my buddy Darrick, we have become very close friends over the last ten years and I respect the way Darrick conducts himself as a man and a father. He is an honest and authentic person and we share much of the same perspectives. 

But this win is exceptionally special to me because Darrick has shown to be faithful to my process, hard working always, doesn’t complain, doesn’t blame just works! He keeps his attitude positive and compassionate. My kind of good person! 

So to see Darrick finally get what I believe he deserves is just poetic justice in a world today that is filled with a lot of injustice. 

Congratulations big D! We did it! I love you brah!
