[Video] Never, ever give up
This is an amazing story. I hope you can understand why I posted this in the Medicine forum.

This was posted by [url=]Dallapage[/url].

Arthur's story is highlighted from the beginning, in the upcoming documentary, INSPIRED: The Movie.
(Thanks to filmmaker Steve Yu for putting this inspirational video together!)

Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.

He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try -- he couldn't do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.

Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey - he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.

Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP's specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility -- which gave him hope that maybe someday, he'd be able to walk again.

His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck - you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.

Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams - whatever they may be.
Anything is Possible!

Good work the guy has done.

I am trying to get in to better shape myself, a few years back I was swimming and weight training.

I dropped the swimming (miss it) mainly due to taking up cycling to and from work each day (16mile round trip) but last year I lived above a shop with a chinese take out next door to it - I was eating at least one chinese take out a week, and buying bags of sweets/chocolate from the shop downstairs.

In a new house now, we have a garage filled with weights and a boxing bag set up. I need to start my core exercising again.
