Martin Fitzwater Apologizes, Focused On Improvements
Martin Fitzwater shared a video on his YouTube account where he was able to explain what was happening.
FIRST OFF, I APOLOGIZE TO ALL MY FANS FOR LOOKING LIKE AN ASS AGAIN. THIS ISN’T A GOOD LOOK FOR ME, AND I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT. I’VE REACHED OUT TO ANDREW [JACKED] AND APOLOGIZED TO HIM MAN-TO-MAN. I DON’T WANT TO ADDRESS THAT TOO MUCH, BUT IT’S SQUASHED AND OVER AND DONE WITH,” FITZWATER EXPLAINED.
Andrew Jacked claimed that he did not show up to the Arnold Classic UK in his best shape and that he would focus on the Olympia. Despite his feeling, the judges gave him a perfect score and he was able to win the event.
This was a reason why Martin Fitzwater was a bit “disgruntled.”
“I WAS DISGRUNTLED ABOUT HIM GETTING A PERFECT SCORE WHEN IT WAS NOT HIS FAULT AT ALL – I SHOULDN’T HAVE ATTACKED HIM AT ALL. LIKE I SAID, THAT’S SQUASHED AND IN THE PAST.”
Finally, Fitzwater discussed how he would use this as. learning experience and make improvements moving forward.
“THAT’S A LESSON LEARNED FOR ME THAT EVEN THOUGH I THOUGHT IT WAS WITH CLOSE PEOPLE THAT I COULD TRUST, IT STILL MADE ME LOOK BAD. IT’S STILL SOMETHING I SHOULDN’T HAVE SAID. IT STILL GOT OUT AND IT STILL MADE ME LOOK TERRIBLE.
LESSON LEARNED HERE. LIKE I SAID, SOMETHING THAT YOU GUYS CAN TAKE AWAY FROM IT I GUESS, I’M GROWING AS A PERSON, I’M GROWING AS A MAN,” FITZWATER SAID.
