Many of us live with the adage, "You never know what the next day brings", and many of us fail to stop and smell the roses daily to appreciate all we have in life.

Adversity is defined as "a state or instance of continued difficulty". Given this truth, there's no doubt in my mind that Byron Hicks has overcome more than his fair share of adversity on his road to the bodybuilding dias. Many will say he's "rebuilt" his life since the horrible accident he endured in May of 2002 on a 15 minute trip. Many of his friends, family and clients call him an inspiration and describe him as a fantastic friend and a great guy with supreme core values and a strong heart and soul. Byron Hicks rebuilt his life from not knowing if he would ever walk again to a national-level bodybuilder.
