Play • 1 hr 9 min

Alexander Gonzalez hit rock bottom when the harness on a roller coaster ride would not close during his daughter's first ever ride because he was obese. After enduring jobs he chose because of financial reward but not happiness, he used his rock bottom to propel him to finding something he loves to do every day. He has since transformed his life.
