Hypothyroidism is a medical condition in which the thyroid gland is under-active and does not generate and relay enough of certain very important hormones to the rest of the body. With this condition, normal balances of chemical reactions within the body are disrupted which if untreated can cause many health problems including: heart disease, infertility, obesity, and joint pain. The hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) are produced by the thyroid gland, and when the production rate of these hormones drop, regulation of common bodily functions can become compromised, causing problems with metabolism, body temperature regulation, heart rate, and protein production.

Isolator Fitness interviews IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Seth Feroce on his resurgence into the bodybuilding industry after a 3 year hiatus and his new apparel brand–All American Roughneck.
Isolator Fitness: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, your journey, and what caused you to walk away from the game 3 years ago?
Seth Feroce: About 3 years ago I decided to call it quits and walk away. I just disappeared, without warning. I was flying high from 2009 to 2012, my career was flourishing, I had sponsorships coming in, and I was working with the best people and sponsors in the industry. I even got to train with guys that I had idolized as a teenager. Everything was perfect, except that my home life was falling apart.
Piece by piece; slowly but surely; the traveling, the women, it was all becoming too much. In 2012, I was competing in a show and everything fell apart backstage just minutes before I was set to compete. My skin had a reaction to the oil I had used and my mind was not in it this time. Of course, I didn’t do very well and I didn’t take that loss very well. After that, I went home with my family and tried to regroup my thoughts and reassess my goals, but my wife and I were at each other’s throats, which compounded to the added pressures from my sponsors and my coach. I started getting pressure from a sponsor to do a show, which has always been a pet peeve of mine, although knowing that this is how I made money to survive and support my family, I sucked it up and decided to do the show. Not long after, I decided that I was no longer going to use the coach that I had for that show and was going to do things on my own.
