Kelli Kobayashi

Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

Oh that is tough. I can’t decide between Kai Greene or CT Fletcher. I would have to say on this question CT because he had overcome a heart attack and almost died but he is still bodybuilding and inspiring others to go for their dreams as well. He is a no nonsense type of guy and that is one thing that I really like about him.

Since our mission is to help remind everyone that the obstacles we face are what make us stronger, what is the hardest situation you have dealt with in your life, and how did you overcome it?

My hardest situation that I had to face in my life so far was realizing that I needed to get help for my addictions. I didn’t realize how bad I had become until someone very close to me showed me that I am not only hurting myself but my loved ones as well. I lost everything I had in order to regain my freedom.

How old were you when you had to deal with this?

I was 19 when I started heading down the wrong path and decided to get help at 21

What is your biggest accomplishment?

My biggest accomplishment was overcoming my addiction to drugs.

How old were you when you accomplished this?
