What does the name Ladder mean to you?
A Ladder is used to climb up to something higher, so I think it’s a perfect name for these supplements that allow you to reach new heights.
How do you build a mindset that can help you overcome tough times?
In my experience, overcoming tough times is building a mindset that acknowledges obstacles without being afraid to push through them.
What routine helps you stay focused?
My gym routine is probably the one constant I rely on to stay focused. I travel a lot so it’s difficult for me to get into any other routine. No matter where I am, when I’m in the gym I know why I’m there and what my end goals are.
